literally the worst experience, very rude and short

Rude, condescending, gave a way more expensive/intense treatment plan than our original ped from another office in your same dental group

it appeared he was trying to embarrass my son by declaring loudly in the waiting room how my 12 year old son is nor brushing his teeth enough or well enough and he was surprised he did not have any cavities. My child hates going to the dentist enough without that type of unprofessional behavior.

Although he is only 2, the appointment seemed rushed and pointless.

Dr. Inga listened to my Sons concerned about a tooth that was causing some pain and he found the issue and took care of the concern.

This is the 5th visit for our daughter, who is 6. She has a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist, and Dr. Inga, although kind, doesnt seem to have a lot of patience. My daughter was recently diagnosed with autism, which explains a lot of her anxiety and aversion to the noise of dental equipment as well as the uniqueness of a dental visit. Only being in the dentist office every 6 months doesnt give her a lot of time to relax into the situation. For the 5th time, Dr. Inga basically did a visual exam, used a regular tooth brush and I feel like he hardly looked at her teeth. When I asked about certain spots on her teeth, he had to have me point them out. If my daughter was allowed more time to ease into the situation, she probably would have had a better appointment. This is not the first time I expressed my frustration to Dr. Inga. I understand that you are dealing with a backlog of patients, but taking a little extra time to explain what is going on and what tools are used for could have helped a lot. We did lots of social pre-framing for this dentist visit to prepare, but its not the same as actually having time to ease into a situation.

My son was supposed to get x-rays, but the dentist decided to skip it because he didnt see any cavities. My son sucks his thumb and had crowding starting but he didnt address it at all with my son and didnt seem to have time to talk with me about it. It seemed like they wanted to get him out asap because he was gagging on the toothpaste flavor. It seemed like glorified tooth brushing and not a dental check up.

I admit that I typically have a lot of questions and I prefer to have a dentist take time to explain options and procedure before rushing through it. I didnt feel heard and it seemed the dentist was more annoyed with my questions.secondly, neither my daughter nor I like how he calls girls princess. She has a name and I prefer if it was used.

this was my childs first dentist appointment. the dentist spend zero time making her feel comfortable with him, the equipment he was using, etc. she was scared and crying and he continued to dig around in her mouth without stopping to comfort her or show her that it wasnt scary. the entire appointment lasted less than 5 minutes. the dentist didnt explain how often she needed to come after the initial appointment. when I asked about how her teeth were coming in, he spoke down to me. he seemed very rushed. overall, I would never come back to have my child seen here nor would I recommend.
