Care Philosophy

At COMPLETE DENTAL CARE, We know that individuals with their own natural teeth are said to live ten years longer than people that are missing or have no teeth. Those without their own teeth tend to require prescription medications for gastrointestinal disorders. There is an old German phrase, "BE TRUE TO YOUR TEETH SO THAT YOUR TEETH WILL BE TRUE TO YOU". The meaning in English: To have excellent medical health, you must have excellent dental health. Our goal is to help you have as many natural teeth as possible. We want your teeth and gums to be HEALTHY, and for you to have a BEAUTIFUL SMILE! If you were to buy a new car, you would want your new car to last a long time. To make that possible, you must keep up with maintence as prescribed;oil changes, rotating tires,etc. Regular maintence is critical to maintain good oral health. We want to find problems when the problems are small. This is how we can keep the cost down. Neglect is expensive.Read more

Springfield, MO |
I lost a good tooth because of her incompetence! I'm serious! She broke a drill bit off in my tooth so she had to extract the tooth! Do not go to her. I was in her chair for 3.5 hrs for a crown fitting! The deadening of the tooth wore off before she got back to me. Her employees were apologizing to me for my long wait Currently looking for new dentist ... again!
Springfield, MO |
Her staff is good. She on the other hand is horrible. You never see her. And by the time you do, she has some excuse why whatever your issues are cannot be addressed at the current appointment. I have yet for her to do anything besides click the computer while in the room with me. the clicks always indicate that she can't do what needs to be done unless you come back. After scheduling a half a day off on 2 occasions and not receiving service, but did receive a bill, she is not worth my time.
