My family and I have been patients if Dr. Cleave for 35 years. He is thorough, and extremely knowledgeable. We have been served by his dentistry office for regular and emergency exams. He and his staff are kind, professional and accommodating.

Starts work on your teeth without getting consent. Which is why he has "Got Consent?" labels all over the shelves in the exam rooms. Very difficult to also ask for the cost, considering much of his work may not be covered by insurance. You have to be really speak up and be adamant if you don't want or can't afford the work he chooses to do. Then his collection tactics are barely ethical - using some shyster that never reveals who he is or why he is calling (which is the law)

Dr Cleaver!! is rough, replaced a root canal post when nothing was wrong with it, it broke the tooth, and I ended up loosing the tooth, he did a few fillings, every one fell out! Had to have them all refilled. He ripped corners of my mouth everytime! My son he put sealants on teeth that he should have known would be falling out in 1-6 months! So was done for the $, waste. He pulled a tooth from my daughter, without consent, stay away from Dr Arrogant Nasty Pain Cleave—-R!! Poor staff felt bad

Dr. Cleave and his staff are very professional and experienced. They have taken me in for emergency appointments with no problem. Dr. Cleave can diagnose a problem and do an excellent job. I have had fillings replaced and two root canals with Dr. Cleave. He is the best dentist I have been too.
