I hate finding a new dentist but I chose Orange Coast Dental due to its location and decent reviews. When I called to schedule an appointment, they had lots of availability but they required that the first appointment not be a cleaning because they needed to do x-rays and an exam first. When I arrived for my appointment, the space was clean with new equipment. The staff was friendly. I hadn't seen a dentist in about a year but I thought it was strange they didn't ask for past dental records or x-rays. I didn't wait long to be taken back for the x-rays. After the exam, they said I had a few cavities that needed fills and the dentist said a technician would be in to go over my treatment plan. The tx plan was clear with itemized costs (after my insurance) for each recommended service. The thing that struck me and unfortunately what leads to me not going back is on the plan they split up the recommended services into 4 different appointments (which seemed like a lot for just wanting a cleaning and fillings done) and the first 2 appointments were deep cleanings which were $100 each. I asked if my insurance covered a cleaning and they said yes but it was only the general cleaning, not the recommended deep cleaning. I understand a business has to make their money somehow but they kept pushing that the deep cleaning was strongly recommended even after I clearly stated I wouldn't be doing that. I didn't like that they put the unnecessary cleanings before my fillings and that they kept pushing something that I didn't see as a necessity. If you go into a dentist office knowing what you want and are able to say "no" multiple times then this place may not bother you but I prefer an honest dentist that won't sell me on unnecessary services. I'll be finding another dentist.
