Ratings for Wellness Dental Center
It all started out that my husband wanted to find a new dentist. We are both retired and over 65 but have always taken good care of our teeth. We had been both going to the same dentist for about 5-6 years but I just didn’t want to take the time to look for a new dentist even though our old one had done some things on our teeth that I should have been looking long ago. When you are dissatisfied with the basic cleanings and just putting a crown on, it is time to move on. We have Delta Dental Care HMO so I had to find one in the network. Our new dentist would be active as of Sept. 1. But, before my insurance became active, I got a really bad toothache. A toothache where I was using an OTC toothache medicine for the pain and couldn’t eat on that side of my mouth. I knew I had to get to one soon. I decided to go to the Wellness Dental Center in Westlake Village. I got to see Dr. Andrey Rossius. He was assisted in my whole experience by his wonderful assistant, Nallely. On my first appt. they did x-rays, consultation and I had an amazing cleaning by Tatsiana. The x-ray machine was actually a huge scanner that shows you pictures of all of your teeth and sinuses. The dr had on a big computer screen pictures of my mouth, sinuses, teeth and what had been done to them. Wow was I impressed. The dr came in and described what needed to be done. I had infection on my gums, bone and tooth. When one of my past drs did a root canal and other work on this tooth and gums, the second one from the upper back, they had fractured the bone but left it with the bone fractures still there and were putting on various crowns which either were not shaped or fit correctly and either cracked or collected bacteria in between and underneath. Dr. Rossius needed to take the tooth out, treat the infection, do a bone graft, put in my stem cell so that it would grow back correctly with my own bone, and later put in an implanted tooth. At my visit I was a bit nervous but he quickly eased any concerns and worries I might have had. All I felt was the prick of the needles putting in the numbing liquid and that was it. This was a long procedure and I didn’t feel anything else. He explained as he did each step and was a true master in his field. He had to take blood from me for the stem cells. I am the first to admit I am a difficult draw and many labs and hospitals have tried many times and many people to get my blood. I always compliment those that get it the first time as being gifted in their field. The dr got 4 vials the first time. I knew I was in good hands. If I have missed any detail, it is just because I wanted to get my wonderful experience out there for others to read so they would consider using Dr. Rossius themselves. What could have been a painful and tricky procedure turned out wonderful. When I later looked at the Dr’s education and his experience on his website, I knew why he was so terrific. All of his equipment is state of the art. He is definitely knowledgeable of all the newest procedures. I left feeling good, with prescriptions to get rid of the infection, an appt in 2 weeks to get my stitches out and a great feeling I had found this dentist. I thank Dr. Rossius and his staff for their patience, kindness and understanding. I had this procedure done this afternoon and I was so impressed that I wanted to write this review while it was fresh in my mind as it was such a good experience.
