19 Years of Tooth Care!

I have been going to Dr. Ergas since I was 2 and I am now 21. He has always been friendly to me and has taken care of any problems I've had with my teeth efficiently and effectively. In my 19 years of going here, I don't remember one bad experience. The office has a fun theme and is great for kids!

Terrible!!

Terrible bed side manner. My 3 year old had never been to the dentist before she was soooo excited. Jumped in the chair and had her teeth cleaned no problem. As soon as dr Ergas came in it went down hill he was forceful pinned her down made her choke and cry. I asked several times for him to stop and he became more forceful. I eventual ripped her from the chair. No way for a first visit to go. My daughter was crying and sobbing uncontrollably. Left before he could look at my son who is one and also was there for his first visit. Will not go back.

Stay Away!

1 Visit to this dentist was more than enough. The receptionist wasn t friendly at all when I arrived in their office but I overlooked it as she s not the one working on my daughter s teeth. My daughter is only 2 years old and this was her 2nd dentist visit and we were referred by another dentist. She has asthma and nebulizer use caused some issues with her front teeth. (Helpful hint that my doctor never told me, rinse a child s mouth out after using a nebulizer!) I brush my child s teeth daily and limit snacks and juices with sugar but he proceeded to speak to me as if her dental issues were my fault. I have 4 children who all have the same diet and habits 3 of them have perfect teeth, my youngest is the only one on breathing treatments. No matter what even if issues are related to a parent not knowing certain foods cause tooth decay I feel the dentist should educate, not beat up a parent who may not know all of the information. Most pediatric dentists I have seen talk to the child to make them feel at ease and show them the tools and such but not this one! This big man she s never seen before just starts poking around in her mouth and she was scared. He then told me the 4 teeth could not be saved which was really upsetting to me but he had no bedside manner whatsoever. Just they can t be saved period. I had a lot of questions after the exam and they didn t seem to want to take the time to talk with me about them. They just gave me the cost of the procedure and said she would need codeine prior and showed me what looks like a toddler straight jacket that she would be placed in on the day of the procedure. Overall he was very cold, impatient, and uncaring. The following day I called my regular dentist and got a referral to another dentist. When I called Dr Posada s office the receptionist s friendly tone put me immediately at ease and she told me that there are options and after the consult we could choose together a treatment plan. Needless to say Dr. Ergas won t come anywhere near my child s mouth again! A parent needs to feel comfortable with any provider that will be working on their child, don t ever go along with something that makes you feel uneasy get a second opinion and a dentist that won t scar your child for life.

STAY AWAY

Awful Dr. Do NOT take your child to him. He has a terrible bedside manner and is short tempered. MY son is still dealing with a fear of Dentists because of the ONE visit we went to see him. I regret ever taking him there and wish I could undo the past. STAY AWAY!!!
