Dr Frank was our dentist first many years. I began having a minor “toothache” in a farthest back molar. After a couple of months he recommended pulling it. He said it was actually a wisdom tooth that replaced another missing molar. I had it pulled. I then found out It was a perfectly fine tooth. The ache was in my jaw. Now my current dentist wants me to have an implant to maintain the integrity of the top molar. It will cost thousands of dollars. In addition, Dr Frank told my husband That his crown was loose. He ended up spending a very long time prying off a loose crown that wasn’t really loose. Then put it back crooked. These were the two that caused us to change dentists. However, over the years Dr Frank has “made work” doing other unnecessary work on our teeth. He sends an email to be sure and use up our benefits before the end if the year. My husband calls him “the dentist to the stars”. He acts like he’s very exclusive.....even refusing a relative to come back after complaining i

Was a great dentist. Has developed into a cattle operation in combination with her used car salesman. Lost faith.

My second recent visit with Dr. Frank. Simply excellent, timely and professional care. My experience from walking in to leaving was more than positive. Each staff member obviously knows their area of expertise - and is friendly on top! Dr. Frank embodies all of these qualities plus being a scary good dentist!

I have been a patient of Dr. Frank and his excellent staff for approximately five years and have found each visit a pleasant one. From the scheduling to the hygienist to Dr Frank himself if need be, everyone is very friendly but very professional. The hygienist Brandy while busy doing her work is also explaining what she is observing and anything that I might might do to prevent the re- occurrence or better maintenance of my teeth. Each visit is made a pleasant visit to Dr. Frank's office.
