I was asked to come early thirty minutes today, but the doctor didn't see me until another thirty minute after my initially scheduled appointment time. Then, I was asked to pay a deposit in order to be seen for dental work.I've never been asked to pay a deposit in my life for medical or dental care. I will not return.

I have never had such painful hygienist cleanings or dentist installed fillings ever. And I have never been treated so disrespectfully - upfront payments demanded before insurance was processed, and no apologies for pain. I was met with defensiveness by the hygienist.

My husband and I have been seeing Doctor Roberts and his team now for about a year, and they continue to be a delight. Dr. Roberts and his technicians are always very thorough, and make themselves available to answer any questionsyou have as a patient, and in a way you can understand. It's important to have a dentist that is knowledgeable and stays up to date with any certifications, which is what Dr Roberts is, and equally delightful that a great dentist also has pleasant bedside manner. We would recommend the practice.

The secretaries were kind enough to push my appointment to 10:30am per my request due to a delivery coming to my home... Paige listened to my concern about cleaning and taking better preventive measures for my and recommended that I usean Phillips Sonicare electrical tooth brush and gave be a $10.00 coupon. When I got home I ordered one online. Dr. Roberts and his assistant did an awesome job on my crown and it fit beautifully and feels like my natural tooth! Dr. Roberts showed me the material that the crown is made out of and it looks like my natural tooth. Thank you Dr. Roberts, Dental Assistant and Office Staff!

His X-ray machine was broken during my visit which doesn't insprie a ton of confidence in this office. The office itself is also tiny and looks like it used to be a small apartment that was recently converting to a dentist'soffice with only a couple of examination chairs. Probably wouldn't go back here.

I'm pretty sure that Dr. Roberts is the best dentist you will ever go to. He is polite, soothing, and very confident and professional. He walks you through every step of the way. Going to the dentist is never a pleasurableexperience, but Dr. Roberts is as good as it gets - he makes sure everyone is as comfortable as they can be. My husband and I both go to him for all our work.

Another great visit with Dr. Roberts and team! I was really, REALLY anxious about having some work done due to a bad experience years ago with a different dentist, and Dr. Robertsh as so reassuring, and made absolutely sure that mymouth was nice and numb! It was over before I knew it, and I'm pleased with the results. Highly recommend him!

I couldn't be happier with my visit today (first time with this practice). Dr. Roberts was very nice, warm, and thorough, and clearly explained any issues he found and what my options are. His office team - Paige, Ellie, and Alicia(hope I have your names spelled correctly!) - were all wonderful, super friendly and professional. My husband is already planning to go, and I have already recommended Dr. Roberts to some family members. :)

Overall pretty nice and appeared to know what he was doing. At the end of my appointment though, he seemed to take issue/offense with my asking for a "couple toothbrushes" and only gave me one. Obviously very minor but given howtrivial the request was, I was quite put-off by his absurd reaction. Generally a positive experience but I'd probably recommend his staff more so than Dr. Roberts.

Doctor Roberts is an excellent dentist, and the closest thing to a "painless" dentist that there is. His "chair side" manner is great--he's communicative and humorous but not like one I've had who tells jokes and asks questions when you reallycan't laugh or answer. Dr. Roberts has a great staff too, helpful, pleasant and professional. Most people dread visiting the dentist, but I really do enjoy seeing everyone there, and feel so good about the work they all do that it truly IS almost like looking forward to my appointments.

Dr. Roberts was very professional and pleasant. He had great bedside manners, taking time to review my dental work and calmly asking questions to verify. He was attentive to my dental concerns and made recommendations without being pushy atall. His clinic staff were very polite and professional. I really enjoyed going to this clinic and would recommend Dr. Roberts to anyone who wants great service and care.

Dr. Roberts handled my mouth very harsh today. I had to stop him as I trying my best to keep my mouth open wide and as he was placing a piece in my mouth I almost started crying and told himit hurts. The Assistant handled my mouth harsh to when placing the bottom mouth pieces in my mouth and I told her one piece scrapped my gums. She later tried putting in my temporary and I choked. She assisted me by telling me to spit it out. Please be more gentler when handling my mouth and put the bite guard in first before asking me constantly to open my mouth... Not a good experience at the dentist whatsoever today!

My visit today with Dr. Roberts was fantastic! Dr. Roberts greeted me, provided excellent dental care and services. He was very thorough in explaining the procedures, X-rays and updating me on my teeth status... Ms. Monique, the Hygenist waskind and did a very good job on cleaning my teeth and informing how to take better care of my teeth. Ms. Star and Lenny were friendly, professional and efficient. I will definitely continue coming back to Dr. Roberts and refer my family and friends. THANK YOU SO MUCH ????????
