Battle Creek Family Dentistry is a very clean and professional place to go for one's dental needs. The staff are all very friendly and hospitable, offering a comfortable place to complete paperwork as well as a beverage for refreshment. The office is very clean and the ambiance inviting, and all of the dental equipment appears to be up-to-date.
In my first appointment, I did not have time for the full set of X-rays and opted for just a cleaning and quick check-up. In the past, when I suggested this option to other dentists, I was degraded instead of accommodated. At Battle Creek Family Dentistry, I was accommodated and treated with politeness and professionalism, rather than being made to feel like a fool. With a quick signing of a document, I was permitted to get a cleaning and basic check-up with a postponement of major x-rays for a more convenient time. I have never had a dentist office be so accommodating and polite, when I requested something that was not their standard procedure.
Furthermore, I have had many issues in the past with hygienists flossing my teeth very aggressively and then degrading me for poor gum care when my gums started to bleed from their brutal approach. I would leave the dentist office feeling like a disgusting and ignorant person, who does not know how to properly clean her own teeth, and my gums would be sore for days. Such was not the case at Battle Creek Family Dentistry. The hygienist was very gentle in cleaning and flossing my teeth, and she did not criticize my knowledge of proper dental hygiene. Her recommendations were delivered in a polite and kind manner. I left with no soreness and no loss of self-respect.
In the past, due to my horrid dentist office experiences, I would only find the courage to visit the dentist once every 3 to 5 years. I think I shall be making more regular visits, now that I have found Battle Creek Family Dentistry, where I do not leave in physical and emotional pain.
I have had a lot of dental work done in Battle Creek, Chicago, Boston, and Lansing, and this is by far the best. I have never had COMPLETELY pain free dental work, and the first time I went there I thought it was a fluke. But no, every single time it has been pain free! I have had fillings, root canals, and basic dental care with them now for about 8 years. My hygienist, Beth, is so much fun and so friendly that I actually look forward to dental visits! My husband wants me to switch to his dentist to get our entire family at the same place, but I refuse to go anywhere else.
I just went in Battle Creek Family Dentistry on an emergency basis.Well, it wasn't really a medical emergency, but the pain really had me convinced. I phoned the office and the secretary very quickly worked her magic and had me come in within an hour or less. After an assessment, a referral to a dental surgeon, and a prescription I was directed right out the door, no paperwork, no co-pay or bill was asked for at that time. The focus was on patient comfort, and the trust Battle Creek Family Dentistry has in their patients is evident every time I visit them. I would and do highly recommend this practice to my extended family and friends.
I have had some really bad experiences at the dentist so has my daughter. I found battle creek family dentistry kind of in a whim I had a tooth ache that was so bad I couldn't handle it I looked in the book and called them well Lindsey was so nice on the phone and concerned and they got me in right away, immediately they numbed my mouth to give me some relief, the first shot I've ever had that didn't hurt! Whoa! Since then they have taken great care of my family and I. I've been there a lot the past few weeks getting caught up and making my mouth better from years of neglect due to fear. This is a great place to go all of the staff is great and so are the dentist. Whew!
Battle Creek Family Dentistry is so amazing with children. My nearly 4 year old went in to have her 1st cavity filled. I was so nervous in the waiting room, I kept imagining that she was probably screaming and terrified. 20 minutes later she runs our into the lobby with a huge smile on he face and showed me the stickers she had gotten for being so brave. I asked if she cried and she said "No, can I come back tomorrow and do it again?" As a child I was terrified of the dentist. I'm so happy that I have found a dentist that my child feels comfortable going to.
Best Dentist office ever. I used to have anxiety going to the dentist, but I don't have that problem since finding Battle Creek Family Dentistry. I used to have to struggle to get my son to go also, but he goes to BCFD with no issues. Wish I would have found them years ago!!
