Filling # 5

My daughter has soft teeth & is prone to cavities. She was so scared going into the appointment for the 5th filling. The staff was fabulous in helping to calm her nerves & Dr. Clay treated her with kindness & understanding, like his own child. I wish my childhood dentist was like him!

Something every time!

The positive first: cute office and sweet girl hygienists. The bad: billing AND scheduling was ALWAYS OFF ... the doctor underquoted EVERY TIME. We would go in for recommended procedure and he would do only PART of the procedure. Then over charge the original quote because they don’t include sedation as a quote. Procedures were told would be 1 visit then it turns into 4!! With sedation EVERYTIME! Bottom line 2 years of dealing with financial lies and my child’s mouth not getting taken care of timely! To top it off the last appointment was cancelled AND scheduled someone else in my child’s appointment made 6 months prior by his office because (we were in a movie and I had to run out) I returned the call LITERALLY 2 minutes after they called around 4 the afternoon before! Horrible and will never recommend this office to anyone. Obviously horrible experiences.

Not very kid friendly for anxious kids

While the office is nice and fancy, Dr. Goins does not seem to know how to effectively handle anxious kids and chooses to sedate them in the office for minor procedures (which after the fact I found very disturbing, as I didn't feel fully prepared for the sedation my child would be given and the after effects - do your homework on the drugs they plan to use!). We changed practices to a new pediatric dentist who is compassionate and very understanding of children's unique needs - and allows parents to come back to calm their children. Our new dentist does not believe in dental office sedation (drugs) but instead allows parents to help calm their children during the procedure (if needed) and only uses nitrous (commonly used across dental practices). My child had extreme fear of the dentist with Dr. Goins but now loves going to our new dentist!
