Ratings for Dr. Stephen M. Lashen
I have gone to Dr. Lashen for nearly 30 years! My mother continues to go to him too. Although I have moved a little further away, it's still worth driving to see him. He has SO many years of experience, and truly knows his stuff, and he stays on top of new technologies that help the patient's experience, like that awesome novacaine that doesn't make your whole mouth numb. Luckily I mainly only go for cleanings, but the couple of cavities I have, seemed like nothing at all to fill. I had issues with my mouth guards, I mentioned it to the person on the phone, she said bring them with you when I come in for my cleaning, and Dr. Lashen took them both back and modified them to make them more comfortable for me to wear, I didn't even know they could do that. I won't lie, I'm still not 100% compliant with wearing them, still working on it, hopefully he doesn't read this :).
My office visit started out ok and then as I was there declined. The doctor was like all smiles and really happy- like he was on something or really fake. The girl cleaning my teeth was very quik and said my teeth looked good. Unfortunately my last cleaing was like 8 years ago and my gums are bleeding pretty bad and my teeth are stained. She told me that it would go away. I was so nervous I forgot to ask about bleaching my teeth. My teeth are still stained and no one mentioned bleaching. My cleaning was really short like 20 minutes and she never told me if I had any gum problems. I have had gum surgery before and probably still have it. I visited another dentist who found 4 fillings and told me i need some surgery to repair. Good thing i listened to myself on this one. Go with the gut feeling.
Best dental practice I've been too. Appointments are properly timed so you never wait more than a minute or two, they call to remind you about your appointment, and best of all, Dr. Lashen is skilled, caring, funny and VERY understanding of scaredy-cats like me. He even puts a mark on the files of patients who are scared of dentistry so he can be extra attentive to explaining what he's doing.
Dr. Lashen is accurate, kind, and he takes the time to get to know each and every patient. He always remembers me from visit to visit and doesnt rush to get you out of the office. His staff is also very skilled and they all seem very happy to be there...... as soon as you walk in you feel welcome in a very positive atmosphere. I wouldnt go anywhere else for my dental care!
