Having neglected my teeth for a few years, I needed a new dentist quick, as I just moved to the Tampa area, and I lost a filling, leaving a large hole in my upper right molar. I was referred to Dr. Cowan, by a good family friend. I just finished my second appointment today, where I got my temporary crown done, my first appointment was xrays, and a thorough cleaning. My experience with the office staff was excellent. They have the covid situation down, took my temp, as I arrived, filled out a simple form, basically saying I didn’t have symptoms of covid. During my initial appointment, the office staff did not push, or try to sell me on a lot of unnecessary dental work, but rather laid out a very competent plan, including my new crown, that was the pressing issue, as well as went over all the costs involved, which was very reasonable. They went the extra mile, and extended my crown appointment , with no hassle, so that 8 could secure new dental insurance, to offset my costs. Fast forward to my appointment today. It was for 10:00 am. I was brought back at 9:58am, which is a very important point, as the dentist is stressful, you def don’t want to wait an extra half hour to an hour, to be brought back. The staff in the back, the assistants and Dr Cowen were awesome, from start to finish, and worked as a team, one cohesive unit. They told me what to expect, what the stages were in getting my crown accomplished, and how long each stage would take. Each part was accomplished, as explained, and I think done to perfection. Dr Cowen is a machine, and certainly made an unpleasant procedure, no problem. My mouth was numbed properly, so that I didn’t experience any pain at all,,,none…..you can certainly tell he is super skilled, and didn’t leave me in the chair, for one extra minute…the hole in my mouth, was not small, or minor, his part of the drilling, and making the mold for my temp crown, Imyhink only took about 20 minutes. The assistants finished up in a timely manner, and took great care with me, as I have neck issues, and siting in the chair itself, reclined, was the toughest part for me. I am a busy person, as are most people I’m not a big review guy, but when I returned home, I really wanted to spend a few minutes, to thank them for an excellent job, as I really appreciate everything they did for me. No one asked me to write this review, I don’t know anyone personally in the office, I am a 100 percent new patient, and this review is 100 percent accurate. If you are reading this, and need a dentist, you have certainly found the right office. You won’t be disappointed, and I hope this helps. I will use Dr Cowen for as long as I am in Tampa, he is an excellent dentist, knows his stuff for sure . Great office.
