After being in the dental field for so long as a dental assistant , I find it very difficult to find a good dentist to go to for my dental work. I’m new to this area and of course being a yelper , I went to yelp to find a dentist. I came across Dr O’Neal and he had a 5 star rating which I thought was too good to be true. Especially because he’s only 5 minutes away. Long story short I broke a tooth 2 days ago and had to make an appointment ASAP and the staff at this office got me in right away and everything was done in a timely manner. I had my appointment today and I have to tell you how great of an experience it was. I’m lucky, and am not afraid of the dentist so the experience is a little easier for me , but for others I’m sure this Dr will put a smile on your face and also be completely honest with you. Which is so hard to find these days with dental professionals. He even helped me out when I really needed it with the treatment plan. He was able to explain everything to me and even showed me pictures to see what he’s working with. He and his assistant both were very kind and humorous throughout the whole appointment. I ended up needed a buildup crown , and the whole procedure was absolutely painless. I actually was talking and laughing throughout. I mean , who can say that about their dental visit?! In just my one appointment I can tell that he really cares about his patients and wants to do what’s best. And I definitely admire that and appreciate that. Unfortunately I don’t know if they will be able to take my insurance in January , but let me tell you, even if they don’t , I’m going back. He was THAT good! So if you’re in the area and need a great dentist, he’s definitely worth a SHOT (lol) a little dental humor.
