I wish there were more dentists like Dr. Hodson around. I had been avoiding the dentist for about 2 years because of continuous bad experiences and being cheated out of money. Right before I found Dr. Hodson, I had gone to Claremont Modern Dentistry and they told me I needed multiple root canals, several crowns, and 6-8 of my fillings needed replacement. Oh and braces. I was referred to an orthodontist because apparently I suddenly developed severe TMJ…No. My husband found Dr. Hodson after hours of searching online, I wish there were more reviews on here for him. First off, his staff has been with him for YEARS, which says a lot about how he manages people who work for him. They are sweet and caring. When I went in for my first consult, I took xrays with me that were taken two weeks before by Claremont Modern Dentistry and Dr. Hodson didn’t push me to take more xrays. He then kept examining my teeth and said I don’t NEED braces (can get them if I want to for appearance), he also told me I only have one shallow filling that will only take a few minutes to fix, and that one tooth was cracked and I needed a crown. No root canals, no filling replacements, none of that other BS I was told at Claremont MD. So I booked my next appointment. Upon my arrival for my crown and such, his wife and assistant knew that I would be a nervous patient, they brought me a blanket and they brought their two adorable labs as therapy animals. They were so comforting and the office has such a warm environment. Dr. Hodson himself does excellent quality work. I had my crown done, filling done, even went back to have my crown leveled off a few days later and everything was fine. My experience here has definitely made me have a more positive perspective about dentists. All I can say is, don’t go to corporate dentists. They are just working on commission and don’t really care about the patients themselves. Hope this review helps. Dr. Hodson is awesome.
