I visited this dentist not long ago. My regular dentist was closed. The dentist did a very brief look at my teeth just pressing along each one quickly and then told me I had 5 cavities. I have only had 2 cavities prior to this in my life and have a history of regular cleanings and exams. I tried to ask more questions, but was brushed off saying this happens to people all the time getting many at once. I then scheduled an appointment with my regular dentist and had him examine my teeth. He found no evidence of cavities. A friend of mine regularly uses Dr. Compton and gets their teeth cleaned as recommended, as well as takes good care of their teeth at home. Each time they uses this dentist however, they always have a minimum of 4 cavities. This led me to get a second opinion from my regular dentist as the 5 they said I had was surprising with my history. He was a very friendly as well as most of his staff but this makes me wonder if work is being done to patients that is unnecessary... Will not be going back to this dentist.
tHE ONLY THING I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IS THE HOURS AND THE DAYS THEY ARE OPEM,TODAY IS FRIDAY ,CALL TO MAKE APPORTMENT AND ,THE PHONE SAIDS TO LEAVE A NUMBER AND WE WILL CALL U BACK,NOT EVEN DENTIST NAME,,,,i REALLY ENJOY THE PEOPLE THERE VERY NICE,LOVE THE DENTIST,GREAT.
For starters my appt was at 11:30, I got there on time. I was sitting in the waiting room for an hr before the front desk clerk ever gave me my new patient forms, which bumped me even further back of the line!! Finally after an hr and a half they called me to the back! Then I set there for about 30 before they came in to do x-rays and to numb me up. Finally the dentist came in after another 30 minutes to find that the lady didn't even numb me enough, so he numbed me some more and I set there for another 30 minutes waiting then at last he came in pulled the tooth out shoved 1 pc of gauze in my mouth and said "Follow Me", so i did he took me to the front desk and handed me a rx for antibiotics and told me to take my tramadol (which i take on a daily basis anyways for my back) and I will be fine. I said "Um ok what if the tramadol doesn't work?" He said "Well it should because I won't prescribe anything stronger than that anyways!" I was in shock I have had alot of dental work done and have never had a dentist tell me that!! I wasn't asking for anything major just something that would ease the pain while I heal. Well by that time he walked away and I had blood pouring down my face and had to ask the clerk for more gauze cause he didn't give me any extra! So finally after 3 hrs and alot more pain I was able to leave!!!!!!
