As a result of years of broken teeth, neglect and inexperienced dentists in the past, I found it necessary to have a whole mouth reconstruction. I visited other dentists – each one had a different plan for my course of treatment. I ended up being referred to one dentist after another, all over the county. Each dentist’s treatment plan conflicted with the previous one I had seen. After feeling frustrated and fed up, I decided I needed to visit one dentist that could address all of my dental issues and was willing to work with me regarding each specific course of treatment – not just refer me to someone else because he was not qualified. I needed to find a dentist who was willing to listen and really cared. To that end, i did an extensive internet search and came across Dr. Pohl’s website. Dr. Pohl has spent thousand of hours perfecting his website – it is user friendly and explains all of his porcedures in layman’s terms. This made it easy for a novice like me to understand his procedures, as well as view before and after photos of some of his patients. Let me tell you that one picture is worth a thousand words!! The smile transformations as shown on his website were remarkable and beautiful. You could tell that he had definitely changed these patients’ lives and everyone looked so happy and confident with their new smiles! I believe that anyone that has worked that hard on educating the public on their website must really take pride in the work that they do. I realized, after looking at photos of patients he had worked on which addressed replacement crowns, veneers and full mouth reconstructions, that I had to set up an appointment. His website also has videos of procedures, so I was actually able to see what would be done so i would know what to expect. I went to see Dr. Pohl for a consultation. The staff was always courteous and welcoming. Dr. Pohl took full x-rays as well as a thorough exam and came up with a complete personalized dental plan. He sat down with me and explained everything in “plain English”. He explained all procedures that would be done and showed me his state of the art equipment that can be found throughout his office. It was very comforting not having to go all over town for different dentists and conficting opinions. The mouth reconstruction consisted of implants, crowns and veneers, Dr. Pohl took tremendous time and effort doing the work correctly the first time. I felt like an “artist” was working on my mouth. I was very happy to find a dentist that took so much pride in his work. He has a great education and keeps current with continuing education courses. His office is spotless and complete with the most modern equipment. He does everything there: crowns, implants, dentures, extractions, bone grafting, full mouth reconstruction, cosmetic dentistry, Lumineers, Invisalign and almost everything else. No work is “too big or too small”. As a result of my full mouth reconstruction, I now proudly wear a beautiful white smile on my face. My teeth all match in color and size and look so natural. I was always so embarrassed to smile because of how bad my teeth looked. Now, I love smiling and getting compliments. Currently, I see Dr. Pohl for exams and x-rays and I go there for my dental cleanings several times a year. The cleanings are always expertly done by Jacqui, his dental hygienist. When she is done with the cleaning, my teeth feel like they are brand new. This gives me the confidence that I will have many more years of good oral health. Let me conclude by saying that choosing a dentist is not easy. There are many out there. You might be able to find someone cheaper – but one thing I know — you get what you pay for. If you are looking for great dental care with a dentist who has modern equipment and years of experience at a fair price, then Dr. Pohl and his staff are who you are looking for. They made me love to smile again as well as thousands of others!
