I've had 6 dentists and orthodontists in the past six years. Top of the line in their professions.. But times are tough, I've had to tighten my belt. So I went with a nearby Orthodontist covered by my insurance, Scott Rothenberg. He was easy to talk to, he wasn't in a rush, and we agreed on the spot, rather than double charge me for a consultation visit and another visit, that we could pull the tooth today. With that decision he proved he was on my side not the insurance company side and he earned my trust. He also didn't upsell me by saying I should sleep during the procedure. I had local anesthetic and the procedure was quick and painless. And inexpensive. Scott's got a genuine bedside manner- he asks questions and listens. My past Ortho talked and talked about himself a lot and I was his audience. I found Scott's manner a pleasant alternative..And I will be back. I trust him and that is very important, but often elusive, to establish between patient and doctor. I recommend his practice.
