Patient Comments (1)
Germantown, MD |
He tried to talk to me about doing possible big jobs. When I asked to delay and get a cost estimate, he did some work in other areas(I am not sure it was necessary). The place is clean, and not many patients when I was there. I can't comment on how how good he is technically since I am not impressed with the work. He charges a much higher price when compared with some other dentists in the area, and the patients need to pay 20% upfront.
