Dental Services

Both of our children has a very brittle set of teeth.  We constantly go to the dentist for filling.  We are wondering why the filling doesn't last very long.  We are thinking of switching dentist but we  are having a hard time doing that since we personally like the  dentist.  They are very nice and  makes us very comfortable during every visit.  
However, we are not very satisfied with the quality of dental work that they do.  The one that we used to go to before going to this one were  really good of what they do but the problem is their social skills.  It makes me so uncomfortable just by sitting in their office let alone in the  dental room.  The dentist is not friendly at all, they lack  personal and social skills.
 So we are torn.  Do you go to the one that you like because they are nice  even though they are not that good of what they do or do you go to the one who  are  so good of what they do but  lack social skills? I don't know, I was supposed to  reschedule my kids  appointment when they cancelled our appointment but I haven't done it since I am trying to decide whether or not we  need to switch.
  Photos were taken in May when they both lost tooth.

Update:  We switched provider after our last visit, details below:

May 28:  The kids had an appointment but was cancelled by the dental office  three days before the actual appointment.  They said that the dentist is not feeling well.  My husband have already put in  a  day of absence/leave  at work for this  but  we did not mind  and we understand because it was  inevitable.  I was advised to reschedule  the said appointment. I rescheduled the appointment to August 31st.

August 25:  I got a call from the dentist office and  was asked if  we would like to come in  because they had a cancellation.  I told them no because we had other things to do that day.

August 31:  We got the kids out  from school earlier just to be able to do their dental appointments.  Upon signing in, we were told that   the  cleaning was  scheduled  a month earlier than  it needs to be.  So they wanted us to reschedule it at a later date in September.  My husband asked me if I want to re-schedule, I can tell that he was fuming  mad already.  I told them no.  I said "It would have been nice if we were informed  the week before so we didn't have to pull the kids out of the school".  They missed some tests on that day because  of the appointment so I was  pissed.  They tried to explain to us but I said I don't want to make anymore  appointments and we left.

On our way home, we dropped by at  another dental office which is closer to our home.  We asked if they are accepting new patients and they took us in.  So yeah, we have new dentists now.

  3. When I am not satisfied, I switch without second thoughts. These kind of services are expensive and you definitely want to get more than you paid for.

  4. If the price is right then go to the one whoever serves you well and definitely have a good dental skill. The social skills can be improved sis. If they have a suggestion box, submit your suggestion so your concern will be brought to their attention.

  5. My teeth are like that, too, and I don't know why. My dad has it, so I assume it's just something hereditary.

  6. WOW! I would have changed dentist too. That is unacceptable! We need to find a new dentist too since we just moved.

  7. What an unorganized dental office! I would have changed, too. As a matter of fact, I've been thinking about changing dentists. My dentist retired and I'm not really liking the one that took his place.

  8. I'd prefer a nice bedside manner AND quality work, but if I have to choose, I"m going with good work every time.

  9. I'm glad you were able to switch dentists. Getting along well with a dentist is great, but when their work isn't up to par, it's not worth going back to them :-(.

  10. Thats very bad experience. I also have the same problem. I go to dentist every 6 months, my teeth look very clean and i take of them really well ( flossing and brush them). But we always find new problem almost every visit. I don't know if i should trust him again .

  11. I feel you and totally understand your frustration. One of my pet peeves is waiting and standing in line. Oh, if that happened to me, they would have heard a few words from me. How unprofessional!

  12. I would switch, too if that happened to us. Things like this will definitely earn them a bad rep.

  13. Yes, I'm big on brushing. I can understand your frustration. At our dentist, we have a minimum wait of two hours before being seen and that is with an appointment. I need to find us a new dentist.

  14. I would have switched Dentists as well. At least the new place is closer to you. It is so important to take care of your teeth.

  15. Luckily for us, we have such good and friendly dentists. They're a young couple and they're both really nice, not to mention, they do a good job all the time. Hope you found you a good dentist now. :)

  17. Gosh, I hate those medical practitioners who just cancel and reschedule! I had that experience with the delivery guys from HHGregg just last weekend and I almost got furious. LOL. Haven't tried it with practitioners though and I guess I'll do the same!!! So much for not taking care of their teeth in the first place anyway!
