I was seen with in a couple minutes of arriving. The hygienist, Angie, was amazing - thorough, efficient, and a genuinely friendly person. I saw Dr. Wall briefly (long enough to determine I needed a follow-up, as I suspected) and hewas also extremely friendly and efficient, explaining everything as he went along. I should also note that Shank at the front desk has the same qualities.

I had a great experience at this doctor's office . Friendly well educated staff with quick service. I generally avoid going to the dentist but they took the anxiety out of treatment. I highly recommend it.

Angie, the hygienist, was fantastic! Dr. Wall was also good. I appreciate the honesty of the office and that they don't push anything pending one's insurance coverage. I will go back.

Dr. Wall and his staff are very professional and accommodating. Like most procrastinators, I waited for the very last minute to get dental work done because I had a flexible spending account that I needed to use. They were able toget me in and help me maximize my insurance so I didn't have a financial burden. I'm so happy to have found a new dentist.

The customer service was Grade A; however I don't trust what happened at my first visit as a new patient. I was there for an oral exam that is 100% covered by my insurance. The hygienist (Angie) brought me to herarea and immediately took ex-rays of my bitewings and then proceeded with cleaning my teeth. After she finished cleaning them maybe 15 minutes- an office administrator (Shank) comes in and tells me about what I thought was a future visit for a deep cleaning and informed me that the procedure was only covered by 80%. I asked him to clarify what procedure and he said, “a gross debridement”, I was slightly confused why the term debridement was used during a routine oral cleaning and asked Angie a lot of questions, including why an oral exam is broken into 2 appointments instead of one. She explained that the office does it this way because it is more detailed than what most offices provided for its customers. I explained to the hygienist that I have been going to the dentist for 35 years and that felt exactly like a basic teeth cleaning and why was the term debridement used. Her explanation was very unclear. As a result I had to pay out of pocket for a “teeth cleaning” and I cannot express how annoyed I am that 1. The service was performed before I knew there would be an additional charge. 2. The service that I received was not a full mouth debridement but a general cleaning. I paid and left and upon further research, I found that a full debridement is a rare situation, and is viable when a client’s teeth are covered with so much calculus is visibly noticeable a full evaluation of the teeth cannot be assessed. I have straight white teeth, and am always being complimented on how great my teeth look. I am positive my teeth condition did not constitute the use of this code, and I was overcharged for a basic cleaning. I have a follow-up appointment scheduled but feel very uncomfortable about visiting this office again. I hope this review helps anyone looking for a dentist. Great service is important, but honesty and integrity weighs more for me.

Great reception staff that immediately made sure my paperwork was in order. I immediately went into the room where my hygienist checked X-rays, cleaned my teeth, and gave me education on my teeth and their condition , without sounding belittling.Dr. Wall then came in, friendly and open. He discussed the condition of my teeth and gave a realistic plan. He coached me through everything he was doing, even the tools he was using. My one helper at the front desk was following my dental benefits to a T to make sure everything medically planned was covered by my insurance. He personally called my insurance and set up the proper procedures on a timeline that was financially friendly for a payment plan! Great team.
