Horrible place to go for dental care. Since they set no appointments, we determined to arrive before dawn. We were the first in the door. The service we required, we were told, could not be performed until 1 p.m., since the person who did it wouldn't be in until then. We decided to call our regular dentist and see if they could work us in (with such short notice, we were afraid they could not, hence the journey to this place) and thank goodness, they could. Apparently this place is the reserve of the truly desperate. Saw some pitiful human specimens this morning. I think I had more teeth than everyone in the waiting room combined. We were later told that even when we returned at one, we should expect to wait up to three more hours before being seen.
Never again. Seriously, not worth the trip.
Happy with Affordable dentures – I have ins. And going to dentist on peters creek it would have cost me double for what i paid here for the same thing. I went beginning March 09. Was there early and already line at door. Even with wait i was in at 7:30 am, by 10am i had five teeth pulled. At 2pm I went back and had my partial in . The service was good, I had many questions at receptionist as well as to Dr.Sako. She was quick , but did answer all my q's nicely. Even though i can't stand needles, she was nice about it .
I went to work ( I work in health/med feild) i had alittle trouble with my s's lol , but that all went away when i had many compliments on how pretty my smile was and that my teeth were perfact as one of my students put it. You know... They had 32 people in there by 2pm and most had been seen and were back for partials /dentures/ or whatever they had done. So before you start crying over the price or service. Stop and really think a minute on how many she helps each day(not easy working with public). If you wish to be pampered like a prince, then perhaps you should go to a reg. dentist where you can get special treatment. There is more time i am sure there where you may get it. I myself couldn't be happier with my temperary partials. When i go back reline/or permanent partial , i shall post how that went. But for now i would tell anyone who asks i had no problems by staff , and people should go there. =) SO thumbs up in my book .....
Horrible service, cookie cutter dentures – I visited this clinic in '09 for extractions & a full upper denture. "Premium package" deal. Right off the staff was cold, indifferent, even rude at times. During the imprint, I asked to lean forward to avoid the gag reflex. She allowed me to, walked out, walked back in & SHOOK IT AT ME & said, "we tried it your way, now we do it my way". My immediate denture was huge, uncomfortable, & difficult to keep in. Bite didn't feel right & it was so far back in my mouth that I couldn't stand it. Dr. Sako lost patience with me & walked out of the room. After sitting there for a while upset & crying I got the mirror & looked at it in my mouth & really became upset. Another girl came in & told me that I just had to get used to it. I told her to look at how much wider the teeth are than my lower teeth. Know the commercial with the old man & woman who put each other's dentures in their mouths. How huge his were in her mouth compared to her bottom teeth? That's how this looked on me. My lower teeth are 1 1/2" side-to-side, the denture they made is 2 1/2" side-to-side! I looked ridiculous. I went back to the clinic & arrived just before 9am. I'd have the weekend to get used to a denture before work Monday. Dr. Sako REFUSED to see me. The recep. advised me that they wouldn't make a new one, that it had been decided yesterday. News to me. I asked again, can't she just see me so I can show her what is wrong? REFUSED. They offered to make my permenant denture & I said no, if we can't get this one right. An assistant asked for the denture, she started to walk out with it, I asked if she wanted to know what was wrong & she said that it didn't matter, that they were going to refund & release me. Dr. Sako & her staff were completely unwilling to work with me to find a solution, wouldn't even hear my complaint. They left me on a Friday with no teeth at all. They mass produce, assembly line fashion, cookie cutter dentures. If you don't fit in that mold, you're out of luck.
