Questions or problems? Please let us know how we can help.
Just had an appointment on January 13th, 2015. I have read the negative reviews after having been there for the first time in years and the third or fourth time overall, and I have a few things to say. First of all, Dr. Fromzel is an excellent dentist, with a very good supportive team of assistants. She is exceptional at minimizing pain, is extremely thorough, straightforward, and fast. She is a breath of fresh air for someone who was used to old, slow, painful procedures done in the past. I used to think that 1 cavity took 45 minutes. Dr. Fromzel can do 5 in 20 minutes (I really neglected my teeth pretty badly). In regards to the negative reviews, most of the people seem to be angry that they were told they had so many cavities, but honestly, she is a lot more thorough than most dentists and that is a good thing (it is much better to drill and fill a nascent cavity to prevent further decay, or an eventual root canal, than to ignore or overlook due to lack of severity). One negative reviewer complained about having a mercury amalgam filling removed (to those who are unaware of what that means, it means that Dr. Fromzel removed toxic substance put in the paitient's mouth by another dentist and replaced it with a material that was not only the actual color of the tooth, as mercury amalgam is silver colored, but also much safer than mercury!), why would you complain about having a toxic substance removed from your mouth and replaced with a more aesthetic and safer alternative?! None of the rest of the negative ratings are very relevant or intelligent either (you can't blame the dentist for pointing out that you need cavities drilled or a deep cleaning or scaling, which is necessary to prevent further gum decay or the worsening of gingivitus or gum/periodontal disease). Let's face the facts: no one loves going to the dentist; it can be slightly uncomfortable or very mildly painful while getting numbed up with lidocaine (just a minor pinch, but it really is not that bad), but in my experience, some dentists do a much better job of minimizing your discomfort and making the cleaning and drilling process go much more smoothly and pain-free. Dr. Fromzel excels in this regard, and I have been to a lot of top quality dentists over the years. I highly recommend her office, staff, and work. I was in, got a very good cleaning with state of the art equipment, perfectly numbed up with lidocaine, got several bad cavities drilled pain free very quickly, and had them filled with white composite just as fast making my teeth look even whiter than beforehand! I could not be happier with the work done. Highly recommended (non-biased review, call their office if you think you might have cavities, oral health is very important and you don't want to end up needing two root canals like I do now due to neglect lol!)
Great Doctor. Very efficient, great personality. Really puts you at ease. Staff is caring and efficient.
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.
