29/08/12 1 4 5 5 Dr. Buchanan has been my (and four generations of my family) dentist for 30 years. I always found him to be kind and knowledgeable. However, of the four generations of family members only two people continue to see him. I have joined the majority and found another dentist also. Dr. Buchanan is a great dentist however is office manager/wife is not good for business. I heard stories over the years of others encounters with Mrs. Buchanan, but didn't get to experience it first hand until recently. She is extremely rude, unethical and unprofessional. Dr. Buchanan is great, but not great enough to out weight the unprofessional, unethical and rude office manager/wife.  Respond

05/11/11 4 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Buchanan for 15 years! He is a great dentist and can make does a wonderful job of making patients feel comfortable! I had a fear of dentists after seeing a horrible dentist as a young child, however, Dr. Buchanan has helped me overcome my fears! Not many people enjoy going to the dentist, but it's a necessary evil and he certainly makes it tolerable! He is very kind and knowledgeable! Highly recommended!  Respond

20/07/11 5 4 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Buchanan for many years. I am a nervous patient and he takes the time to make sure I'm comfortable. His hygienists Sonya and Diana are gentle and keep me distracted. Highly recommended.  Respond

23/02/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Buchanan has been my dentist since I was 7 years old (25 years). He has been great. I am one of the few people i know that loves to go to the dentist. It is pain free and everyone who works there is awesome. Took a while to get used to the attitude of the new office manager but change is always hard to get used to. I now do not have a dental plan and sometiems find it difficult to come up with the money but he is understanding and will book me in and send me the bill.  Respond

01/04/07 3 5 5 He has been my dentist for over 20 years. My sister now brings her children to him as well. He knows us by name and is very socialble and interested in how we are doing. He inquires about my parents, and genuinely seems interested in knowing the answer. He notices any potential problems early and resolves it. He is also helpful by assisting families with other needs they may have.  Respond

22/02/07 5 5 5 Dr. Buchanan has been my family’s dentist for as long as I can remember. I can not say enough good things about him, he’s awesome. He is always pleasant, and professional and willing to do anything he can to solve the task at hand, even financially> That to me says he really cares about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone in an instant. One of his hygienist’s makes my gums hurt though and don’t seem very friendly.  Respond

08/02/07 4 4 5 I have been going to him for over 20 years! He is a good guy who really knows what he is doing. I really like his hygienist Elizabeth, unfortunately she only fills in when the others are away. She is the gentlest one there. :)  Respond

13/12/06 5 5 5 I love this guy. He's been my dentist for years. Always friendly, and never treats you like a moron. There is one of his hygienists I really dislike though, I think her name starts with M. She's very rough I find with her cleanings. I was thrilled one time when she was gone away on a honeymoon or something and I got one of the other assistants I like better.
