DO NOT GO TO DR. BLACK’S OFFICE. I have had multiple incidents of shoddy work from Dr. Black, and while he was interpersonally kind when I came back to get them fixed, his actual dentistry skills were lacking. Each time I was still left with unnecessarily sharp edges, broken fillings (one fell out literally in the parking lot after the appointment), and temporary crowns that fell out multiple times (including, again, falling out in the parking lot the moment I stepped out the door. I understand temporary crowns are *temporary*, but these fell out almost immediately, which I’ve never experienced with other dentists). I have spent hours over the course of several months in his office with my teeth worse for the wear, until I finally went to another dentist who replaced my broken filling. He noted that it likely fell out because Dr. Black didn’t actually get the entire cavity cleaned out. Despite paying hundreds of dollars upfront for this dental work, I received a bill from Dr. Black’s office (for some reason it was in my husband’s name, not mine, even though the work was my own) for an additional fee that insurance had apparently not covered (which I understand happens and is not necessarily Dr. Black’s fault). When we called to ask if there was any leeway in not paying this additional fee given the shoddy work done by Dr. Black, the receptionist blamed us for not calling sooner and said we were not being “fair” to Dr. Black by going to another dentist to fix the work he had done poorly. When I explained that I have limited time off work and did not want to spend it sitting in the chair of a dentist who had already messed up several times when I was in intense pain from the filling falling out, she still insisted that I had made the wrong choice by going to another dentist first. Also, Dr. Black made unnecessarily sexist comments, such as remarking that women “can’t handle” the pain of teeth whitening as well as men can (side note: research shows that doctors dismissing women’s pain in this way is a major cause of medical malpractice) and that women don’t know anything about cars or oil changes. When I tried to gently correct this rhetoric by stating, “I actually drove my own car to this appointment and I’ve managed my own oil changes for years,” he smiled, disagreed with me, and held to the sexist rhetoric. Also, I have never given written consent for them to share my medical records with my husband, but somehow they joined our files (which is, I assume, why the bill came in his name instead of mine), despite us having different last names and never requesting that they do this. My assumption is that they found out we were married and use some sort of outdated “head of household” protocol to put family members together under the name of the “man of the house”, but according to federal privacy laws they should not be sending my medical information to another adult unless I’ve filled out a HIPPA consent form (which to the best of my memory I have never done at this office). Save yourself some time, money, trouble, and sexism by finding a different dentist..
I feel bad to leave a poor review because I generally do not do that. However, I am still traumatized how rough he treated my 7-year-old daughter. I have never seen anyone actually hurt my daughter the way this dentist did because he got frustrated. I actually stopped the visit and left. My heart actually hurts still whenever I remember how my daughter was treated and that was 4 months ago. He had the audacity to then offer a narcotic for my daughter for her pain. I questioned why she wou.
We were looking for a new dentist to take care of some serious repairs for myself and were recommended Dr. Christiansen’s office. We went in and were treated amazing! We walked out talking about how much time they took with us explaining procedures and our best options, we felt like we were the only patients in the office! We were so impressed we brought our 2 young kids in. Once again we were amazed at how much time was spent with our kids and how wonderful and comforting they were with them!!.
