During my last annual six-month check-up for me and my son, I discovered that it was the policy of GMS Dental to only conduct an exam and x-ray once a year. During the 6-month follow-up we only got to see the hygienist. For years I have been taking my children and I to the dentist every 6 months. If a problem crops up I would want to know as soon as possible. My insurance pays for this preventive maintenance service including exam and x-ray to be done every 6 months . Therefore,I decided to visit another dentist the following month. It was then that I discovered that my son had cavities and needed attention as soon as possible. I had the two cavities taken care of and will not be returning back to GMS Dental. Even though I had another family member that had a appointment the following month. I had the new dentist to take care of that as well.
