Dr. Bergan is a very gentle dentist, with a very nice manner, The office staff at Dr. Bergan's office is exceptionally nice. Malena, the office manager is outstanding. I'd rate Malena 6 stars on a 1-5 scale.Dr. Bergan's prices are extremely fair. Dr. Bergan is nearly always on time,
which is extremely unusual when it comes to medical professionals of any kind.
However, what would be considered to be emergencies in other dental practices where I've been a patient over the years, are not viewed as an emergency by Dr. Bergan or or staff. At one point, a crown broke off, and I was left by Dr. Bergan with a "Tooth stub"for over a month.
On another occasion, I was left in terrible pain .I was told that the first possible appointment was in 10 days.
There have been other similar situations. Currently, I have a a broken front tooth.and a number of front teeth that are chipped. I'd had all these teeth repaired last year by Dr. Bergan, but they broke again. I had called last week, and the first possible available appointment that was offered to me was 6 days later. As luck would have it, my car would not start when I set out to drive to the appointment
I have been informed that Dr. Bergan's next availability. is TWELVE DAYS from now.
This is a broken front tooth that appears to have decay inside.; ;A filling that Dr. Berang had place in this tooth last year fell out.
If a broken tooth doesn't constitute a dental emergency , what does ? My tooth could fracture. I could need root canal, I've never had a dentist (or doctor, ) who did not set aside time for emergencies.
De. Began's phone messages states" New patients and emergencies welcome. ." I am an established patient who has a dental emergency,
A twelve day for an emergency is not reasonable, My previous dentist, who moved out of the Country, ALWAYS fit me in the very SAME DAY in the event of emergency, including when I once broke a tooth. I think Dr. Bergan is wonderfu, but if I can find another dentist, I will have to switch dentists.
My teeth are at risk of further breakage while I wait this 12 days for Dr. Bergan to see me.
