I've been going to Dr. Fonmedig ever since I moved to the area. He is very thorough and polite! He walked me through the process of when I had to get my wisdom teeth pulled (because I was super nervous aboutwhat to expect). I highly recommend him and am glad that he even accepts my new insurance after switching jobs!

I went to a new dentist - the fillings had decay behind them *in every filling he did* (the fillings wasn't done right she said it was not smooth and crunchy looking) he charged me for a tooth that he didn'tfix (cavity) and my new dentist showed me new X-Rays that basically all the teeth HE touched was bad and needed work. That's just the short version..Sadly, I now have to pay OUT OF POCKET for all HIS MISTAKES because my insurance won't cover it.

Let me tell you how much I am scared of the dentist! I was referred to this practice by my co-worker who is a patient and her daughter. Dr. Fonmedig is THE BEST! I just got 2 extractions of the wisdomteeth. They numbed me up GOOD, and I was relaxed. I felt NOTHING, just a bit of pressure but it was a SPLIT SECOND and boom both teeth were out and I was on my way. There was little bleeding and the day after (today) I'm feeling like I never went to the dentist. The staff is professional and welcoming, especially Nya who stood in the room with me and talked or rather, let me talk! LOL! She knows how I feel about the dentist. Just want to say THANKS to her for that. I appreciate all of ya'll!!!!

The office staff are very nice and professional. You never wait for more than a couple minutes. Most of the time, as soon as you sign in, they take you right back. I was in and out yesterday after having acleaning and X-rays within 24 minutes. They are very thorough and my teeth look great!

He took a couple of X-rays , diagnosed the problem right away, wrote an Rx, and since he couldn't do anything until the infection went away, didn't even charge me! How often does that happen?
