What People Say About Dr. Bruce Dines, DMD

Probably the worst experience I have had at a dental office in a very long time. Had extractions that I felt every second of with the excuse that the pain was just pressure when in all actuality I was barely numb, the equivalent of the oral gel they use to ease the sting of novacaine. Would not recommend this practice to my worst enemy.

I went in for a consult on my wisdom teeth Dr. Dines sat me down explained my procedure and was very informative. I was completely terrified and his staff as well as him reassured me i was in the best care. He thoroughly discussed my process and risks and i left feeling like i was in the best hands. His staff was so nice I’ve always been scared of the dentist but here it definitely changed my opinion!

Dr. Dines and his staff at Black River Oral Surgery are truly professionals in their work. I was treated with respect and dignity, and well informed of all aspects of my procedure. My questions were answered honestly, in detail. Dr. Dines is incredibly thorough in his work and would not perform the procedure until he had consulted with my other providers to be certain there wouldn't be any complications. My broken wisdom tooth was removed painlessly with just 1 shot of Novocaine in minutes.

My experience with the doctor and his staff was excellent, my tooth was broken off and Dr. Dines got it out in three minutes with ease and no pain. He and his staff work together wonderfully and made me feel as comfortable as they could while sitting in that chair. I didn't even have time to pick up a magazine and read it, thats how quick they got me in which was great as I had no time to wait and worry. GREAT JOB

Very very rude and almost threatening demeanor... Left his office feeling very unsafe and decided not to go through with the procedure until I could find a more trustworthy provider

My son is in his 30's and during his first visit for extractions everything went well,BUT the second visit he had sinus drainage and Dines wouldn't work on him.Dines offered getting all the extractions done in an OR setting so he agreed.While going under anesthesia my son had a serious reaction to the medicine and it scared everyone so we decided to go back to extractions in office.He showed pain due to an abscess and Dines dropped him! NOT impressed! BEWARE!
