Lafayette, IN |
I had my left wisdom teeth removed at another dentist a few years ago and my right two by Dr. Coates. I have been to many dentists in the US but Dr. Coates is the worst so far. Compare to my previous experience (both with local anesthesia), my experience with Dr. Coates was really uncomfortable. He was very rough. The hot drill touched my lips a few times and got swollen. When I confronted him about it, he got angry and defensive. Very unprofessional. I ran out of the room in tears. Never again.

Their follow through with your appointments and concern for your condition did not exists at all was told some one would contact me in regards to my appointment however no one ever did so when I call to see if there is a problem I am told I will have a return call and here it is a week later and I haven't heard from them. The office and Dr Coates need to work on their follow through with their patients it's been 4 months now and the problem is still not taken care of

Receptionist was very welcoming, and helpful. I had all wisdom teeth pulled/cut, and didn't even need to be put out for the procedure. Dr. Coates did an awesome job at making sure I was prepared, and ready for the days following. Great job!
