Professional Staff – I found the staff to be very professional and pleasant. I will recommend this office to my friends and family.
Outstanding Service – I am in love with this dental office. Other dental offices have really traumatized me but this office has been great.
Hmm..... – I along with my spouse and kids had been a patient there for a few years. We too experienced the " gum disease" diagnosis and at first panicked because we know the importance of good oral hygeine and what can happen if you don't take care of your teeth. We went in for cleanings and ended up with a huge bill and our teeth still felt like they needed cleaned. Not once did they do the normal routine of polishing and scaling. As one reviewer said, " get a second opinion". We made a trek to our favorite dentist, who lives out of state, and he assured us that we didn't have poor oral hygeine. We trust him to be honest because he has been in practice for some time and he is of all things, a family member! If you are not sure of a diagnosis, seek a 2nd opinion. It can't hurt and could save you more in the long run.
Very thorough – I have never had a dentist take so much time to evaluate my oral health. I have been going there for 6 months and I feel so much better about my smile! My gums don't hurt any more when I floss and they have really motivated me to keep things clean. I agree with the other user that said just because you don't agree with the diagnosis doesn't mean it is wrong! I highly recommend this office and my wife and I will continue to be their patients.
Not recommended Dental Services - Go here if you want to watch movies on nice plasma TV 's – I agree with the other folks who have had left bad reviews on this web site regarding this Dental Office. They had me doing expensive cleannings all the time I went for a regular cleanning. They said I had gum problems and that I needed all these cleannings, plus expensive wash mouth, and other treatments that really I didn't need. I recently changed dentists and my new dentist was surprised to see they had been treating me for a dissease I didn't have. He only performed a regular cleanning for wich I didn't even had to pay my $25 co-pay. This was a very nice surprise as I was used to spend $250 to $300 on every visit I did to Vinings Dental.
Please, be aware! A nice waiting room with plasma TVs everywhere do not mean they will be professional and reliable when it comes to your $$. Besides, they have to come up with some kind of fund to pay for the nice TVs!!
On The Contrary, We Had a Good Experience – In my recent search for a new, good and convenient dentist for myself and 9 year old, an Aunt and friend suggested I tried the family dentistry that they use and enjoy. While I trust their judgement, I naturally went online to learn more about them before scheduling. I took note of the less than favorable reviews previously posted, however, the two personal referrals that I received were more recent and I decided to call the dental practice to inquire. I mentioned that current patients referred me, and that I was a little concerned about the reviews posted on their practice. The office was aware and seemed equally concerned about the negative image painted of them and while I have no way of knowing what took place with those who felt so badly about the practice, I must say that Dr. Larsen and the staff that I met (Amy, Ann, Delores) showed my daughter an I a nice first experience. The dentist and his assistants were thorough, gentle, informative, friendly and professional. Dr. Larsen discussed his findings and OPTIONS on treatments that he recommended and/or provided. He referred another dental specialist to me for another concern as well as provided me with out of pocket pricing on the treatment that he offered beyond my insurance coverage, should I choose to continue with him, which I believe I will. As a consumer, I truly appreciate being given my options so that I may understand, research and make an informed decision and this dental practice gets a thumbs up from me.
Not Trustworthy – I've come to the realization that something is not quite right at this practice. They change hygenists as if nothing and no one notifies you of it. These hygenists have diagnosed my husband and myself with gum disease and now they want me to do a procedure under the gums that'll cost about $3000. I've been cleaning with them about 4 times a year and it has made my gums recede even more, and the idea behind it was to prevent exactly that from happening. Everytime my husband and I are done with a cleaning, we leave with a bottle of something and some toothpaste. I don't know where it ends. I don't like Dr. Perez.. I don't know why ,I don't trust him but it's just a gut feeling. He totally supports the surgery and I think they are such scammers. It seems like they are running a factory there, churning out high profits at patients' expense.
Good practice – I've always had good experiences with this practice. I've never been pushed to do procedures, and have very good treatment and service. I don't understand the other comments on "scams on gum disease." If you don't agree with the diagnosis, get another opinion. But, just because you don't like the diagnosis, doesn't mean it isn't correct.
AVOID VININGS DENTAL! – I couldn't agree more with the first review. WHAT A SCAM! I was also diagnosed with the beginning stages of gum disease and so was my husband. They refused to clean our teeth unless we agreed to this expensive procedure and bought the mouthwash, toothpaste, etc. It doesn't stop there! When I questioned the price and said, "my insurance should cover more of the costs" they completely ignored me and billed the wrong insurance company! It took to over 6 months to get my refund! I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO VININGS DENTAL!
What a scam – I have used citysearch for years now but have never been so disappointed that I felt compelled to write a review. I have seen time and time again people come out of this place with a kit to fight gum disease and spoke with someone this weekend who was diagnosed with the same. I can't tell you how many people I've talked with who have been diagnosed with the same problem, and of course it comes with a hefty price tag. They've gotten money from me and many others in addition to scarying people with their scam.
