I was eagerly anticipating my visit to this dentist. I had a couple of problems and arrived with a positive mindset. I have seen dentists regularly for decades, so I know what to expect. I recently moved to Atlanta and decided to see Dr. Jones because his practice is close to my home. The office staff was cordial enough. X-rays were taken and I waited for the doctor. Dr. Jones arrived masked. He never said ""Hello"" or any other greeting. I did. He was not interested in establishing any kind of rapport with me. He jumped right in discussing the issues. This discussion came to an abrupt end, he said maybe my teeth needed cleaning, and he started watching the TV (CNN) in the room. I thought he must have a particular interest in the news story that was on at the moment, and I quite patiently waited for it to pass. It did. He kept watching. Now, I'm uncomfortable because I don't understand what is going on. Secretly, I begin to question his credentials, and then his work ethic. Finally, he tells me to stand up, we were going to get my teeth cleaned, which, apparently, was going to happen in another room. Which was fine with me, but how about a little communication while you are watching TV? The hygenist cleaned my teeth (did an excellent job!) and then became the dentist. She discussed the treatment options and costs with me. She scheduled my next cleaning and then led me to the check-out desk. Dr. Jones was there. He never said another word to me. Not even goodbye. I paid and left -- without the little kit that every dentist gives when you have your teeth cleaned even being offered. This is only the second negative review I have ever written. I am so upset that I used my x-ray insurance quota with a doctor that obviously was not in the least bit interested in having me as a patient. Perhaps the previous reviewer had an enhanced impression because her doctor- husband was there with her. I don't know. I just know Dr. Jones was very cavalier and dismissive. He may be a good dentist. I don't really know. But one thing is certain -- he needs to completely change his approach to patient relations. I don't know how he's managed to stay in business this long. Perhaps he has a lot of first time patients.
