Bought the Groupon for an exam, cleaning, and whitening kit. Called to schedule an appointment and was told if I wanted to be seen the day of, to hurry and get there within the next 20 minutes. So I hopped in my car and sped over there, only to be made to wait for over an hour in the waiting area. Not sure why they made me rush there when all they ended up doing was waste my time. Then came the exam. Dr. N told me I needed a cavity filled and two fillings replaced. Not having dental insurance, he was going to charge me $700 dollars for it. And according to him, my teeth were sooooo bad that I need two separate cleanings, one of which wasn't going to be covered by the Groupon and for which I was to pay over $70. Let me be clear, this wasn't in the fine print, and no dentist has ever done this to me with/without a Groupon before. Oh, and one more thing, my mouth was bleeding a little bit from the gum depth measuring and I could pay an additional $140 to have a teeny bit of local antibiotic applied to the area. Uh, no thanks, just give me the now HALF cleaning. Hygenist was only OK, didn't clean any more thoroughly than any other place I've been. At the end, another surprise: no polishing because we're only cleaning half your mouth. Um, what. On my way out, I had to specifically ask for the whitening kit included in the Groupon. I had to insist on picking up the kit then and there, because the office manager suggested I wait to pick it up at my next visit to clean the other half of my mouth. Um, no. There won't be another visit, ever. Luckily, my aunt is also a dentist and I went to her for a second opinion. She said my teeth did not need two separate cleanings and that my fillings were just fine, though I did need a small cavity filled. Getting my x-rays from Dr. N was pointless as well. When two other dentists looked at them, they both said the images were too low quality to see anything useful, and I needed new x-rays taken. When I finally did find an honest dentist to take care of my cavity, the total cost of exam, x-rays, and filling cost me only $80, nowhere near the $700 estimate from Dr. N. This dentist is borderline unethical in his pursuit for money.

From Our Editors

Though he knows how to artfully arrange sets of porcelain, Dr. Mark Nguyen is anything but an interior decorator. Rather, he's a dentist who specializes in cosmetic treatments, utilizing tools such as Invisalign braces, porcelain veneers, and implants to enhance a smile's beauty. Though he often administers complex mouth makeovers, he strives to minimize all patient discomfort. His Zoom! whitening treatments, for example, are only one hour long, much shorter than the time it takes to paint them with Wite-Out.

Dr. Nguyen also conducts medical procedures for the long-term health of teeth and gums. He takes intra-oral photos that allow clients to glimpse inside their own mouths, as well as digital x-rays that identify hard-to-see problems. His oral cancer screenings, fluoride treatments, fillings, and crowns further help to combat tooth decay and other mouth-related ailments.
