Ratings for Dr. Mark Bingham
I can't say enough good about the care I have had over the years at Dr Bingham's office and I'm so happy that Dr. Ian Gibson has joined the practice permanently now too. They are both kind, knowledgeable and reassuring. I'm a really nervous patient so I like the smaller office style. The staff always makes me feel so special with lots of extra TLC. In the past I have had gum surgery and Dr Bingham was extremely gentle and professional so the best part for me now is the hygienists. They make me feel really comfortable so I actually look forward to getting my teeth cleaned and they do such a great job of keeping my gums healthy that I won't be needing surgery again ever!
I went to see Dr. Bingham for a gum graft, while he was very nice-I would describe the results as butchery- possibly worse than before the surgery. I will have to get it corrected somewhere else and pay for it twice. When your hands shake as badly as Dr.Bingham- it's time to retire from surgery.
Dr. Bingham and his staff seemed very experienced. Yes, they were not the regular 30 something age group but that probably gives Merna and Kathy all the thoughtfulness and positivity they have. Dr. Bingham extracted one of my teeth and I also got a bone graft done today. It was an arduous procedure given the condition of my fractured tooth. However, both the doctor and his assistant Verena were on top of their job ... chair positioning, regular suction, breaks, mouth swabs, updates on how the procedure was coming along, additional freezing, etc. Waiting to see how well it heals now!
I had a gum graft done last week. Dr. Bingham positioned the chair more for my comfort than for his convenience, which made it easier for me. Verena covered me with a fleece blanket so that I would not get cold for the hour or so in the chair. They were quite willing to take brief breaks so that I could swallow. It did not feel rushed at all. I was given Dr. Bingham's personal phone number in case I had any problems over the weekend. I have been going to Dr. Bingham's office for years and have always found Kathy the hygienist to be very good, as well as Merna at the front desk. I highly recommend them all!
Dr. Bingham did a gum graft for me. I found that he was very gentle and meticulous in his work. He offered me pain medication which I did not even need. I found him to be conservative in his recommendations and not just out for profit. He is knowledgeable and very good at what he does. I also found the hygienists personable and highly skilled. My dentist was very pleased with my gum surgery.
If you’re the perfect candidate for implants then Bingham might be your guy. For the rest of us he lacks empathy, enthusiasm and appears burnt out and uninterested. Hygienists are professional and rather sweet however front office staff reflects Bingham’s attitude. Rates appeared to go up every time I visited.
My daughter had to have emergency work done and Dr. Bingham took her immediately. The staff are terrific and work together as a great team. Dr. Bingham knows his stuff and came across as both caring and confident. I would recommend Dr. Bingham in a heart beat.
Dr Bingham performed a tooth implant for me last year, which involved both tissue and bone grafts. He is very professional in his approach and I was most impressed with the level of care taken to get the job done correctly. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of specialist dentistry.
