Ratings for Dr. Bruce Gardner
Nice staff, nice office however this dentist left my teeth feeling like the rocky mountains - Each time a filing went in, it fell apart the next 2-7 days which meant more grinding and loss of tooth. Had a second opinion done by another dentist confirmed my thoughts - he did a terrible job and I will have to have extensive work done in the future because of his sloppiness. He treats his patients like a factory.
I found the one receptionist with dark hair to be very rude, and unhelpful. I did not see Dr. Gardner, but I did see dr. Martista, and have not a good experience. Every time she filled a cavity, I would have to go back a couple of months later to have it refilled because it fell out. I've never had a lot of Dental work done, so it wasn't until friends told me that this was not normal and in fact a scam to make more money or just really less then stellar work done! I would not recommend them to anyone. They take advantage of you and cause more damage to ensure you need more work = more money for them. STAY AWAY....CONTACT SOMEONE ELSE!!!
I've been to see Dr, Gardiner 6 times over the past 3 months and I can never seem to get what I want done but end up paying 400-600$ per visit. I finally sought advice from another dentist who told me the person I was seeing about my teeth was almost certainly doing half the job which in turn would have me keep coming back for the same underlying issues again and again. I would never have taken Bruce for a criminal but in this case I would unfortunately be wrong. Save your money and keep your health, visit another dentist.
I thought Bruce was a nice guy and competent dentist. I really felt there was a lot of up sell going on though. Guess you have to pay for the big buck office with new furnishings and TV's everywhere somehow...but not outa my pocket. Just give me a dentist without gimmicks in his office. Spend the dough on necessary dental equipment and charge me for what I need, not for the gimmicks you think I want.
I find the hygenists in this office to be so negative. The two with whom I've worked never smile and one was actually chewing out the dentist while I was being worked on. I would not recommend this office. Dr. Gardner has done multiple procedures on one tooth and my sensitivity and pain are actually getting worse. Ultimately, I think he will just root canal and crown the whole thing and I am starting to suspect he's just putting me through as many procedures as he can bill. When I started doubting the trustworthiness of the dentist, I can't go back.
