Not my dentist anymore. As others have mentioned, Yes indeed, the office support staff are very nice, however it's the review of the Dentist & his work that are key. I found the Doctor always very rushed to move through patients & lacking "bedside manner". His retired predecessor, Dr. D, was very quiet, yet professional. Each of my visits with Dr. Suzuki required a revisit to fix texture issues, mainly between teeth where floss would snag & get hung up. At my last visit & above my head, he complained to the assistant that he was "not happy with how it was working" (an element of the compound curing instrument) & switching this element of it the next day, yet he continued to use it to fix my teeth. I remember thinking "Am I going to need a fix on this fix too?" Two weeks later, the area between two teeth that he bore out & fixed "to stop acid wear from getting worse", crumbled apart leaving two half teeth & painfully exposed nerves. I came to his service with some fruit acid wear to enamel between a few teeth (I admittedly enjoy too much Summer Fruit & didn't realize I should be rinsing my mouth after each) & now his "preventative fixes" are my problem areas. It's upsetting to say it, but I no longer feel I have great teeth, not from eating too much fruit, by from my dental help in one year. That's what happens when you are talking & your teeth fall apart in your mouth... Twice. I spoke with a friend, also a client and unbeknownst to me, she had switched to another dentist months prior because of quality issues. Wish I'd known sooner. I have a new dentist in Elk Grove, its further away & even through I had to pay out of pocket, because insurance won't cover redoing work (even though it was fixing damage) that was paid out to another dentist. It's worth it to me to not sit in Dr. Suzuki's seat, wondering if my mouth is important enough for some of his extra time. I feel if some component isn't up to par, then it should have been switched out right then & there. Now I wonder, how many other patients of that room had there teeth crumble apart?
