There is no way this is a real dentist office. My first time there, the dentist never introduced himself to me. Didn't shake my hand. Didn't even speak to me. The hygenist told him about two concerns I had, he never addressed them to me directly. He mumbled something to her... And walked out. Never said goodbye. Have a good day. Nothing. I was left sitting there, so I said to the hygenist "soooo about those teeth I am concerned with???" Extremely awkward and uncomfortable the dentist made me. I was a bother to him. Back to my board certified dentist I go...I'm immediately scheduling another cleaning actually elsewhere. Hygenist flossed only some of my teeth, snapped the floss in half in my mouth. Cleaning my teeth she rushed through it and it took her maybe 5 minutes tops. Not even a thorough job. I don't think the instrument even hit all of my teeth. I'm actually stunned my time was wasted. Hygenist thought she spotted a cavity but yet never pointed it out to the dentist. What a mess. Told me to floss more because there is a small cavity between a set of teeth but yet didn't recommend or say anything about fixing the cavity. Please avoid and go to a real professional.
Dentist - A dentist is a person qualified by a doctorate in dental surgery (D.D.S.) or dental medicine (D.M.D.), licensed by the state to practice dentistry, and practicing within the scope of that license. There is no difference between the two degrees: dentists who have a DMD or DDS have the same education. Universities have the prerogative to determine what degree is awarded. Both degrees use the same curriculum requirements set by the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation. Generally, three or more years of undergraduate education plus four years of dental school is required to graduate and become a general dentist. State licensing boards accept either degree as equivalent, and both degrees allow licensed individuals to practice the same scope of general dentistry. Additional post-graduate training is required to become a dental specialist.
