08/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bell has been my dentist for almost 20 years. For most of those years I didn't need anymore than a cleaning and a checkup. Over the Christmas holidays I broke a tooth and Dr. Bell was so accommodating, she agreed to open over the holidays to see me. She is very caring and compassionate and willing to take the time to explain procedures and options. I like that she doesn't recommend expensive unnecessary work. I would recommend her without hesitation.  Respond

23/04/09 4 5 2 3 I have gone to dr bell my whole life. I used to love her service and she went above and beyond but since opening her own office her practice has gone way down hill. I have teeth problems and I have become so fed up with Dr Bell that I have left her services. I had one filling replaced 6 times in 2 years...and each time she made me pay for it. Years ago she would have admitted it was her mistake for the fillings falling out and not charge but now she just doesn't do quality enough work. I have become increasingly unimpressed. What drove me out was the last time I called I said it was kind of an emergency the filling in my front tooth had fallen out(yet again) and the receptionist told me I couldn't get in for 3 weeks. Before at least I knew I could get in quickly for an emergency but 3 weeks? I can find a new dentist and get it fixed by then. Dr Bell also never does anything unless you push for it anymore. She is too expensive to provide such bad quality work.  Respond
