I was treated for wisdom teeth extraction. I felt as though the bedside manner was poor. I had a lot of anxiety about the procedure and did not feel like my anxiety was reduced but actually e exasperated.

Dr. Hu is a great doctor. He saw me on very short notice (I broke a tooth) and started the process of replacing my crown immediately. Everything was explained clearly, and I was done in less than an hour.

I think this office is gross. The woman who called herself a periodontist is sick. She asked me how much do I want to pay how much is my tooth worth to take it out saying my insurance doesn't pay forit which it does!!!! She was nasty. Do not go here. I left because I was scared for her to touch my tooth knowing it would be the worst experience ever. This place reminds me of a bad nail salon. Where the women don't want to do nails they want to go back to watching a movie on their iPad.

This practice (McLean Dental) consists of a married couple. I wish I had found them years ago. They are gentle practitioners and extremely knowledgeable in dentistry. I would NEVER go to anyone else. I was referred to them approximately 2 yearsago. The referring Dentist messed up a tooth extraction and sent me immediately to McLean Dental. After another 3 hours, the tooth was finally extracted. I think very highly of this practice.

So basically I booked an appointment with Dr. HU for consultation and the secretary told over the phone that it would free of charge, I go there and she asks me about my health insurance card and when I asked why,she told me it’s for their auditing purposes, so I trusted her, but guess what? They billed my insurance and when my insurance they sent me bill. I didn’t sign any paperwork for payment commitment, the only piece of paper that I completed had my name and address on it and I gain, the secretary said that’s for their records and auditing. I should have known this place has issues when I first got in and there was no single patient there. At that time, I‘ve had a recent procedure in my gum at another dental place and the doctor’s assistant or may be another doctor (because she didn’t introduce herself) kept pressing with her fingers on that area, I asked her to please stop because it was hurting, she said its ok, not sure if she was understanding what I was telling her or not. Anyways, they couldn’t view the x-rays I had on CD with me because as they told me it is too advanced for their computer, so they didn’t look at any x-ray, yet they were able to tell what I need and how much it will cost, what a joke. Then Dr. HU took me to his office to show me before and after photos he is planning to add them to his clinic’s website (no comment). Anyway, I am not paying the bill they sent as they don’t have the right to bill me, but I am also complaining to my insurance company and to some other authorities if they send me the bill again.

Very satisfied with the overall experience. I'm glad I chose Dr. Hu. There was so much snow left just on the parking spaces for the dental center nearest the building. I don't know who is responsible for that but that was a little disappointing.

Drs. Hu and Yang are both exceptional dental professionals and between them are capable of performing any type of dental procedure that you may need in the office without the need to refer a patient to another dental for specific procedures.Both Drs. Hu and Yang are more than willing to go the extra mile to ensure complete patient satisfaction. Even with my high level of sensitivity to dental pain and rational fear of any type of dental work being performed on my teeth & gums, I would without hesitation recommend both Drs.Hu and Yang to address any dental related needs you may have.

I had a procedure 3 months ago. I could not go to follow up appointment for a while since I was very busy and I knew the follow up appointment was just to hear about the pathology, which could be doneover phone. Dr. Zhaoliang is very good doctor, with good bed side manner, and solid surgical skill. However, I was very disappointed today to find that they had not processed the insurance for 3 months and charged me whole cost of the procedure. They said they will reimburse if insurance covers for it and it will take 6 weeks. I think they should have contacted insurance 3 months ago, not to mention they should have told me if they were not sure if insurance covers the procedure. Overall, I really liked the office stuffs and himself. I just have to say I was very disappointed by this issue.

Fantastic service I had a tooth extraction in an impacted tooth. I previously went to another dentist for the extraction but he caused too much pain and after 45 min of drilling I walked out with Swollen face. I then foundDr. Hu and he booked me right away it literally took about 5 min to extract my tooth with zero pain. He is highly recommended. J

I was amazed by how professional Dr. Yang was at my appointment. I've always had a Dentist just stop by after an assistant cleaned my teeth, but here it was actually with the Dr. and my oral health was explained ratherthen to typical 'You need to floss more, have a great day'.
