Dr. Beck and his staff were all very kind, and had great customer service. However, I was a bit frustrated by my experience there. I rarely have cavities or anything wrong with my teeth, so it's usually in-and-out when I go to the dentist. But this time, I was there for over 2 hours! To me this seems like a long time. After the initial cleaning, xrays, and exam, Dr. Beck came over to chat with me about my teeth. He explained that I had two cavities that needed filling; that they hadn't turned into root canals yet but he would recommend filling them as soon as possible (I heard him tell this exact same thing to the next patient over also). Hmm, okay. Then, I was given an estimate for 500-something dollars, and asked if I would like to schedule an appointment to take care of it.
So just to be sure, I had my xrays sent over to my usual dentist of whom I've been going to for years (I wasn't able to see him this time because of a scheduling conflict). I told my dentist that Dr. Beck had found two cavities that needed filling soon. He immediately called me back after looking at the xrays and said ""Even if you wanted me to fill those teeth, I wouldn't, because there is nothing there! I am looking at two spots in your teeth that could potentially be there for the rest of your life and are certainly NOT cavities or needing fillings.""
I wanted to share this review because I, like many other people, try to avoid dentists who only are out there to make money. I know there are many out there like this, which only makes me appreciate my regular dentist more. Maybe Dr. Beck is trying to help his patient have beyond perfect teeth, I am not sure, but wish he had been honest with me. I felt a bit misled after my visit there, and like he just wanted my money.
Also, there is a dog freely wandering around the office. I found this strange, even though I absolutely adore dogs and have one of my own. I feel like a dentist's office should be a sterile and sanitary environment and how can it be if there is fur and everything else that comes along with having a dog around?
I struggled whether to even write this review after I visited Dr. Beck's office because I didn't want to hurt the business. However, I feel that my experience there should be shared with any future clients who are considering making a visit to this office, just so they know what may be typical.
