    My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Wynn and dr. Tran for over 8 years. They are amazing dentist and we have loved every single dental hygienist that has ever worked with us. We actually look forward to going to the dentist now knowing that we are in good hands.

    Having been a patient here for nearly a decade, I've seen the service deteriorate over the past two years. While I've been satisfied with the dental work to date, the office and billing is questionable at best. I pay for a premium dental insurance that does not require a copay for basic cleaning. At my appointment last year, they claimed I owed a deductible. I told them I didn't and confirmed it with my insurance before coming in. They then checked and said oh most people don't have that, which suggests they didn't bother to check. My last cleaning which was scheduled 6 months out by their office was to be on June 13th, which I thought was great because I had off for work that day due to the Juneteenth holiday. Sure enough shortly before my appointment they inform me they are actually closed. Odd, but okay. I then required some repair work out side of a basic cleaning, which my insurance openly stated they covered at 80% after deductible. I stated this at the time they went over my treatment plan which showed a lower coverage amount. When asked on why the under coverage, they clarified that my insurance only covered a basic repair material used and they were using a superior material. I contacted the insurance and sure enough the insurance tells me regardless of material they cover at the higher 80%. I contacted the dental office again, informing them of this, they stood by their claim of lower coverage due to a downgrade benefit. I asked if a pretreatment estimate was what they had given me, which is what the insurance company told me to ask for not just a treatment plan, and it was like pulling teeth to get them to tell me it was not a pretreatment estimate. In fact, they would not be able to get a pretreatment estimate in time for my appointment tomorrow. I called the insurance company back, they informed me that my plan does not have any downgrade options and is covered at the higher percentage. They also informed me pretreatment estimates can be filled out and responded to in a matter of minutes. With them leaving my insurance company's in network coverage, I was willing to pay the higher amount and stay. Ultimately they said I was correct on the higher coverage amount, claiming it had changed from 2022 to 2023. While I don't think that is true based on my archived 2022 coverage, it is July. This again suggests that they didn't check my coverage. That being said, the experience in the last two years has been such that the leave is now timely.

    Dr. Nguyen was amazing! I have a needle phobia, and she was able to fill 4 cavities without any numbing or needles or pain. She was extremely accommodating to my nervousness, and the whole experience was great. My routine cleaning was also more thorough and professional than the other dentists I had tried in the area. I am so happy I found them!

    Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Tran are great dentists. Had a broken crown. They squeezed me in in a short notice. Dr. Nguyen really listened and took exceptional care to make sure that I was numb well. I told him about not being numb enough. He gave extra dose Novocain. He waited and gave me extra shots 5x. He explained that some people would need more and I am one of them. He was never rush. Took his time in the whole process. Dr. Tran came and helped find the best color to match my existing tooth. Flexibility, being patient, listening well and caring are the reasons for the 5 star rating. Thank you, doctors!
