"OK, so this is a long one. Bear with me.
My mouth is a mess. It's going to take a shit ton of money to fix it and that's overwhelming and the reason why I've put it off is because I haven't found a dentist I can trust. Until I met Dr. Hart. My co-worker recommended him to me a few months ago, and I went in for a routine checkup and upon meeting him, I felt immediately at ease and trusted him instantly. Finally, I've found my dentist soulmate (don't you wish dating was this easy in LA lol).
READ THE REVIEW
Over the years, I've heard from other dentists I've seen say stuff like you need a crown, you need fillings now, extraction now, you have to do this now or you'll die blah blah and I just never trusted them or I felt they were trying to take advantage of me.
Dr. Hart broke down the things I needed that were immediate and the things that I could wait for. His receptionist team are amazing, they work with your insurance, break down the costs, even give you follow up calls to make sure you're feeling OK. Dr. Hart expresses urgency but in a way of a concerned tooth fairy, not a greedy person trying to make money fast. I never felt the pressure with him which is why I go to him because I know that he actually CARES about my wreck of a mouth.
Dr. Hart told me I needed a root canal, something I've been putting off because of the horror stories I've heard and the cost. I finally bit the bullet and got it done and OMG... my first root canal was a PLEASANT experience. The whole time he was telling me that I was doing a great job and apologizing TO ME for it hurting (totally not his fault, it's a freaking root canal, it'll probably hurt), his bedside manner is impeccable. That's why I keep coming back to him.
This is getting long, but there's one more story I'm sharing and then I'm done. I'm leaving the country in a few days for vacation and my stupid bottom left wisdom tooth decided to grow in (all my sympathy goes to teething babies now) and it was hurting to simply eat. I purchased Orajel and was going to just deal with it when I got back, but the receptionist (think her name is Dana) insisted I come in the next day first thing just so he can take a look.
I see him and he takes a look at my mouth and says I'm going to need to go to an oral surgeon when I get back. I whine, "All I wanna do is eat all the pasta in Italy. It kinda hurts to chew, can I use gauze?" Immediately, he is sympathetic, calls me poor baby, takes another look in my mouth at my upper wisdom tooth and was like, "Hey, I can shave down your crown so it's not pushing up against your cheek." EUREKA! My mouth immediately felt better. I ate later that day and I wasn't in pain for the first time in days.
How freaking sweet is that?!? Just so I can eat pasta, he goes in and gives me a fix so I can enjoy my trip. He's just such a kind person, I seriously cannot rave enough about him. I want everyone to go to him, but then I don't want everyone to go to him because he won't have time for my mess of a mouth. This practice is top notch and I cannot recommend him enough. If I could give them a million and one stars, I would.
OK, all done, byeeee!"
