Ratings for Dr. Ryan Etue
I found Dr Etue compassionate. I was seeking a second opinion for my smile and some unique health concerns. I appreciated his approach to my care, and he even offered other opinions here and where I live . Thank you for being kind and not judgmental. Erin K.
If you are looking for a dentist, I highly recommend skipping Complete Dentistry and Dr Etue! I first began working with Dr Etue about 3 1/2 years ago. I chose Dr Etue because Dr Etue offers full sedation dentistry and advertises himself to be a dentist who is particularly compassionate and responsive to patients who have suffered dental trauma which I have. The past dental trauma I have suffered kept me from going to the dentist for probably 8 years. When I first met Dr Etue, I found Dr Etue to be a supportive, compassionate dentist. Over the course of 6 months, I had major dental work done with this practice. After that initial work, I came in about every 6- 8 months always receiving an excellent report card from Dr Etue and his staff. Unfortunately, over the years, Dr Etue's personality has changed. He is simply no longer the compassionate, supportive dentist that he once was and does not take the time during exams that he once did to make sure that my teeth were well cared for. The last 2 appointments that I had with Dr Etue and especially in my last appointment with him, he came across angry and abrupt which was so unsettling as a patient! During my last exam, Dr Etue stated that according to pictures that the hygienist took, there were several teeth that were '"in question" He was hurried during that exam and at no time did Dr Etue show me any pictures and point to the issues that he was concerned about! The day after the appointment, I contacted the office and requested copies of the pictures so that I could see for myself the issues that he was speaking about and he and his staff acted like my request was a big inconvenience. In this day and time with current state of the art equipment, it should be a very simple task to provide a patient with images from her visit. This dental practice has a very high turn over of staff which is also very frustrating. The office manager, Francesca, is lovely, however, the rest of the staff often comes across rude and hurried. While I was a patient at Complete Dentistry, I always went out of my way to be extra kind and friendly towards his staff who often seemed stressed and perhaps, unhappy. I never missed appointments. Lastly, the most upsetting and unsettling experience that I had at this office was during my 2nd to last appointment with Dr Etue. Let me just say, that the issue is an issue that made me really question this dentist's ethics. Go somewhere else to make sure you are receiving the best possible dental care where you know that your dentist and his staff will be kind, friendly and will take the time with you that will ensure the health and well being of your mouth/teeth. I now see a biological dentist which is a dentist who takes great care to make sure that the dental materials that they are using are bio compatible my particular chemistry which lessens the liklihood that an allergic reaction will take place which can cause major health issues. LOVE LOVE LOVE my new dentist! My new dentist did a thorough exam today just 2 months after my recent exam with Dr Etue and found 2 cracked teeth! Dr Etue never mentioned any cracked teeth! My new dentist also discovered that the crown that Dr Etue placed 3 years ago exposed a root! :(
Dr Etue did not judge me because of my past or bad teeth. nothing hurt and he always checked on me to make sure I was okay , even if I was being difficult, i get nervous. I like that he gave me payment plan to help get me out of pain and put me to sleep. Dr Etue gave me a beautiful set of veneers and 2 implants and now I can smile again ( plus three years to pay for it !!!!!) nice guy too
First off I want to thank Dr Etue' s staff for being patient with me as I have terrible dental anxiety. My husband I have been a patient now for 2 years. While my husband has had routine dentistry done and his teeth whitened , I have had to undergo multiple surgical procedures from an auto accident. I felt that the care and treatment I received were superb ! And , although they weren't always easy afterword, what I really appreciated was not only his staff checking on me, but Dr Etue as well. I was blown away by this, as I ve had medical issues my entire Iife, and not one doctor has ever check on me and given me his private cell phone. I felt like this was above and beyond, and he even followed that months after the treatment was finished on the weekend no less. Lastly, I want to thank Franchesca the office manager. Both she and Dr Etue know we are regular people and money is an issue. I felt like they were up front and work to fit care into our budget, that was awesome . Thanks again Dr Etue and Complete Dentistry
Don't fall for his nice guy ruse. Acting seems to be his forte, not dentistry. His work is hit or miss, and I wouldn't consider it stable. But then again, I wouldn't trust any general dentist who claims to do all work that a specialist does. Wait time can be awful , after all, there only one dentist in his office and he seems to think he can do everything. I don't think I have met such a manipulative dentist before. He actually makes me uncomfortable in a passive aggressive way. He likes to gas up his patients till theyre high as a kite so they would be too distorted to know what's actually going on, and to keep from being bothered and annoyed. Don't fall for it ! Only few have seen his true colors!
I am so glad I found Dr. Etue. I have no idea who the person the other reviewer is talking about, but it in no way resembles my dentist. The Dr. Etue I go to is absolutely amazing, and is the first dentist I've been to that I actually trust. That's really saying something because I've had some bad experiences and didn't go to the dentist for about ten years before I started to see him. When you're at the office, you feel like a rock star, like you're everybody's favorite patient, and you're treated like that from the moment you walk in until you leave. Dr. Etue explains everything he's doing before he does it, checks with you constantly throughout any procedure, and actually talks to you about life and your health and what holistic things are going on that can affect your teeth. I absolutely recommend him, trust him, and have referred my entire family to him as well as several friends.
Dr Etue false advertises many of his services. I told him about a terrorizing experience. He waited until I was away from my husband in the chair and threatened me and told me he really didn't want to even help me. He gassed me and the fixed tooth (they didn't even see if I was ok the next day) he did no free advertised whitening or sonicare. The tooth was of course not fixed all the way and it didn't even last a year. He lied about his "three year guarantee" he was rude and twisted the story I shared of a terrifying experience into a story that suited him the best. He is a liar and a terrible dentist who bullies patients and made me cry and scared. He comes off as a caring guy. What a false advertising, womanizing incapable JERK. His work falls apart and NO he doesn't re-Fix it. He makes an excuse not to help you when you are desperate. Worst experience I have had. Ever. His "I'm from the East Coast and we don't put up with that crap" CSS right out as soon as you're alone is no way to do business of any kind. Also note his education. BA and it shows. He is not a caring dentist. He wants ur money. He's a monster.
no one likes going to the dentist, but this wasn t bad. the entire office , as well as dr etue, made it almost painless. i was able to be put to sleep and have an implant placed without even knowing it. i would send anyone of my family members there.
