Most horrific experience I've ever had. Worked rough & aggressively without care, concern, or caution. Instruments were knocking into my other teeth. When asked to turn towards him he didn't remove his fingers from my mouth to allow me to turn myself, but rather hooked me by my cheek with his finger & pulled my head towards him. Was left in the reclined position several times where he attended to other patients & a repair person. Pulled tooth took 1 month to recover from pain and soreness.

If I could give Dr. Ference 100 stars, I would. I recently had gum grafting surgery done by him, and experienced zero pain throughout the process. Recovery has been remarkable, and nothing has even bled. Huge recommends!

Tooth extracted, implant set. Did not feel a thing.

I was a bit apprehensive about having periodontal work done, but Dr. Ference and his staff (Eva) helped things go smoothly. I was allowed to choose the music and when it seemed that I needed to reduce my anxiety due to a gag reflex, Dr. Ference worked with me to ease my mind...the nitrous oxide was very helpful even though I had initially said I was fine without it. Anyway, about five hours later I am in minimal pain and confident in knowing that Dr. Ference did a great job. Thank you!!!

Insurances Accepted          

  • Our insurance coordinators deal with many different insurance companies. Some companies offer many different dental and medical plans. These companies can change benefits, co-pays, and deductibles many times throughout the year. We do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on information available to us. At times, it is almost impossible to accurately estimate a patient's insurance co-payment. Many insurance companies will not give out fees until after the treatment is completed. Dealing with these companies can be difficult and time consuming.
  • As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change to your insurance. It is important that all information about you and your insurance is current.
  • Although we will gladly file a claim on your behalf, you may wish to submit the claim yourself. In general, insurers process claims filed directly by patients faster than those filed by the service providers (dental offices).
  • Further, most dental insurance policies are limited and often only pay for a portion of the procedure(s) that may need to be done.
