In late 2015 I went in to Dr.L Painters office to have two teeth in the front, outer surface, fixed( filled )due to sensitivity. That's what the dental hygienist said was going to be done. Dr Painter came in and gave me a lot of shots to numb ( I was thinking wow they really numb your mouth) He then said we are going to fill the back two teeth, they have cavities! Never heard about them before and the dental hygienist never mentioned it either. Numb! Cost! Unprofessional! NEVER WENT BACK !!!!!!!
Our office policy is to have our patients review and sign a detailed consent form before we proceed with any treatment. We would love to discuss this further with you! As we do not have your full name on this review, we ask that you would give us a call at 260-486-3100. Thank you kindly!

Dr. painters office was fantastic to visit. I normally dislike any visit to the dentist but his staff made me feel relaxed. More important, they made me feel at ease and comfortable throughout. I would highly recommend Dr. Painter to any future patient. My billing was handled perfectly, professionally, and courteously which tells me sour grapes over something else in previous posts.
We're glad you had such a great experience! We do our very best to ensure our guests have a comfortable visit. Make sure you use our referral cards when making those recommendations so you can get credit and be entered in our quarterly drawings! If you've run out, stop by the office and we'll be happy to get you some more.

I love going here. They take your mind off of the fact that you are at the dentist. They offer you a warm neck wrap, paraffin wax hand dipping, a back massager thing to put on your chair and a blanket. The staff there are all really friendly and fun and Dr. Painter is so nice and gentle. They explain everything to you about what treatment you need, how much it will cost and how much they think your insurance will pay for. It's a really cool looking office too. I highly recommend them.
Thank you for sharing some of the things that made your experience special! We work hard to maintain a comfortable, relaxing environment for our guests. We appreciate your recommendation!
