I love Dr Rust, he has been our dentist for well over 20 years but if we need a new dentist in the future, it won't be one connected to Lifetime Dental. I get a calls prior to an appointment telling me I need to call to let them know I am showing up or my appointment will be given away yet no one answers the phone. My husband took time off to go to an appoint not long ago and the office was closed. Prior to Lifetime Dental entering the practice there where no problems.

I am not happy with my experience I had my last appointment at Dr. Russell's office. When I arrived to the office they did not have power for their server and their telephones were dead. A proper assessment for my of the crown that fell off could n be done. This crown was installed on Nov. 2017. At a cost of over $1700 and two other visits for the same issue for the same crown falling off. No work was done during this appointment on me! Yet I was charged $45.00. (there more)

Dr. Rust and his team made me feel quite comfortable from the minute I walked in the door and the feeling continued until I left. His plan for my care was fully explained and I feel very confident that I will be happy with the end results.
