Dr. Karas' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Karas "Dr. Spiros Karas understands the value of a dentist who offers more than exams and procedures. His educational background at Fairleigh Dickinson University prepared him to relate to his community in a professional manner, and his dental degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey provided the best possible foundation for a dental practice. But it has been Dr. Karas's more than 20 years in private practice and scores of long-term patients that have given him the one thing that cannot be taught — a caring, personal touch. Dr. Karas is a highly skilled dentist dedicated to staying abreast of the latest advances in dentistry so that he can offer patients the very best in oral care. His utmost desire is to provide gentle and effective care to patients of every age and dental background. He believes that excellent oral health begins with education and prevention. His mission is to enlighten patients in the ways they can take greater control over their own dental health. From the patient's first consultation through follow-up, Dr. Karas will be there. He will not shuffle his patients off to someone with whom they are not familiar; instead, he believes in being accessible regardless of how complicated or lengthy a procedure becomes. Whether the patient needs a simple filling, root canal or complete dentures, he is there all the way through to ensure the best possible results and experience. Committed to remaining aware of the latest advancements in oral health and dentistry, Dr. Karas is a member of the Monmouth County Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. During his last 30 years of practice in New Jersey, Dr. Karas has been active in the community of Manalapan."

Dr. Karas Says:
"

While we strive to offer the most comprehensive and expert dental care available. We will often work with the patient to resolve all difficulties that are preventing them from getting the dentistry that allows them to better their quality of life.  Some people might not be interested in that.  Some folks might be looking for a quick and inexpensive fix. While we value every patient we will not compromise your best

We would never damage anyones mouth. A person that left a bad review might have other agendas in their mind. Some are not even a patient of our practice but might be motivated by competitors that are trying undermine us. Other times they may be venting anger towards us because of an insurance issue, payment or their inability to afford the suggested treatment. We ask all our patient to bring any issues to us so we may work to resolve them.

I am now a "former" patient. The staff & Doctor were polite. However, this practice ruined my teeth. They were eager to swipe my Amex card for a few thousand dollars, more than once. I found unnecessary cleaning & other appointments constantly shoved down my throat. I had perfect teeth for years...more

We like to offer patients choices. Patients sometimes are not interested in a comprehensive solution. We ask all our patient to bring any issues to us so we may work to resolve them. We hope to have a second chance to change your opinion of us. Your experience is not indicative of our standards

I did not find him to be particularly professional. He was most interested in getting me scheduled quickly for my next, more lucrative appointment than discussing the particulars of my case with me.
