Extremely friendly staff. Hygienist Manuel was friendly, down to earth and professional. Scheduled a last minute cleaning exam and was seen the same day with little wait time in between seeing Dr. Baawo. Dr. Baawo is extremely knowledgeableand took the time to go over my treatment plan and explain each and every detail about my situation. Highly recommend if you're looking for a dental provider :-)

He was great as well as all his staff...never had such a thorough first exam they really couldn’t of made everything more comfortable than they did. The doctor definitely gave his full attention didn’t rush through anything at all start tofinish...what i appreciated most is he gave all the options along with his recommendation for each and every issue - and i gave him a lot of them - in detail the costs risks outcomes whats better long term etc etc etc and actually letting me choose instead of pushing thousands and thousands as the one and only way they’ll help you..which seems to be the theme with every past dental experience ever pretty much. Usually I’m leaving the dentist often still in pain all discouraged that there’s no way possible I’ll be able to take care of everything to get back on track...but no not at all this time in the end left with a plan that’s actually possible...one that i handle financially that i can see my dental health getting back to what it should be. It’s just the start so hopefully goes as planned...just a surprise to be as optimistic after about something that’s become a daily obstacle.

Well... i can start off by saying the staff is very nice. The doctor was ok but he looked for everything i didnt come to get fixed and seemed only interested in promoting products and what not.. the waiting time is pretty long.. communication could go a long way here.

This was my first time and will be my last time at this office. 1st- My appt was at 1pm. I arrived at 12:50. There was a sign on the door stating the staff was gone to lunch from 12pm-1pm. Myselfalong with 2 other patients stood outside the office until 1:10 before someone decided to let us in. The ONLY reason someone came to the door to let us in was because I called the office to see if anyone was back from lunch. Someone picked up and had no clue patients were outside of the door waiting to be let in. 2. I was not seen until 2:17pm. I arrived at 12:50pm for a 1pm appt. Imagine how bothered I was. Im literally just now leaving the office and its 5:06pm. The only procedure that I had was a 20-30min deep cleaning! I left work for this appt and informed my boss that I would return after my appt. My off time is 5pm! 3. They do NOT validate your parking ticket! It would not have been a problem for me if I didnt spend over 4 unnecessary hrs in their office.

The lady at the deal greeted me with a smile and had I two forms to fill out. The white female had 20 years of experience but failed to use a topical to dull My pain. The Hispanic lady was kind,sweet and end.She hugged me..awwww! She made my day!! Candace was the MVP of the day.She knows technology, she knows how to get to the root of the problem. She's very professional, gorgeous, great personality and ..she smelled good!! Mmm

Dr. Baawo and his staff are awesome! I haven't been to a dentist in man years (way too many) and the doctor and his staff treated me with dignity and respect. They didn't chastise me or make me feel small fornot taking better care of my oral hygiene. They made sure I was as comfortable as possible and they took extra precautions because I'm currently pregnant. I would recommend them to any and every body.

The staff were friendly enough as well as the doctor. I came in for a simple cleaning. When the doctor initially entered the room after his assistant had given me my x rays I was told the doctor would give mea cleaning "if he had the time". He proceeded to ask me questions which I had already answered via zocdoc, as well as answered in the waiting room while filling their form out, and answered again by the doctors assistant. After going through the same questions for the fourth time the doctor proceeded to painstakingly slow go through my x rays and enter information onto his computer. He then proceeds to ask me to lay down as he counts my teeth with tools which were at best questionable (they had what looked like rust on them). After this was finished he tells me that I'll need a deep cleaning and that he wont do the cleaning that I came in for. I am only allotted one cleaning per year which this doctor charged my insurance for but never completed. I do NOT! recommend going to this doctor. I drove 20 miles just to wait an extra long time to have my teeth counted with dirty instruments. You've been warned.

Well, I haven't gotten the work completed yet, but so far the experience has been a good one. The entire office has made me feel more comfortable than I ever have with any other dentist. They really seem to care aboutthe health of my teeth now and in the future. I like the plan the doctor has come up with, and for the first time I am looking forward to getting this taken care of. The only thing thing I can think of to make the experience a little better is the parking, it would be nice if it could be validated for the patients. I look forward to my next appointment.

Dr. Baawo and the dental hygienists were super nice, informative, and considerate. The receptionists did not seem to fit because they seemed as if they didn't want to be there and were expecting me to give them attitude, so, to me,they seemed a little defensive and condescending. But I go to the dentist for their abilities, not the receptionist's abilities. Overall, it was a nice experience, and I will go back. **Warning** You have to pay for parking.

Sad to say this but I was very dissapointed.I should have known when the receptionist was calling me to confirm and kept giving me the wrong date something was wrong. First problem was when it came time to do the xrayof my teeth I had to sit in a standard office chair instead of a dentist chair ! Smh. Second problem, the dentist telling the dental assistant " if the have a small mouth you can use gloves but if they have a bigger mouth you dont have to use gloves" Excuse me?????? I kindly told the assistant uhhh yeah im going to need you to wear gloves regardless for sanitary purposes duhhh. Smh si the next problem was the fact that the X-ray was so uncomfortable that I had to make the assistant stop. Ok the final straw was when the receptionist told me they didnt validate parking. Really? So why couldnt anyone in the past week call me and let me know before I came to the appointment that parking cost? I told the receptionist that I didnt bring cash with me because I didnt know. She kindly scratched behind her ear and said " well when you come back to your appointment call me so I can tell you where to park". REALLY? Well how in the heck is that supposed to help me now? Smh. It was just a mess to me it really was. Not going back to that office. I don't care how much pain I was in because I simply didnt trust them around mouth and it didnt seem that the genuinely cared. First and last visit. They really need to get it together. #dissatisfied
