Never go to this dentist. I had a broken tooth. Quick appointment but she just put concrete on it and told me I had to get gum surgery with in-house periodontist. I got a 2nd opinion with a periodontist and another dentist. Both told me that her work on the tooth was malpractice and no surgery was needed. I paid her via credit card and insurance. She billed for provisional crown but that was a lie. Now she wants more money. I called many times for explanation. Nobody responds.
