Ratings for Dr. Gregory Westman
We first started seeing Dr. Westman when our son (then 4) had broken a mollar and we were referred to him by our dentist. Our son was quite terrifed of everything he had already been through and Dr. Westman and staff were great with him and we were so pleased with him we have moved our kids over to his practice. Our son is now 13 and being the typical boy has had several minor injuries involving teeth and we have been treated very well everytime. I would recommend Dr. Westman and team to anyone with children!
We have a 4 yr old who had a bad experience at a previous dentist. We were hoping Dr. Westman would help him get over this experience, but no. Dr. Westman is likely knowledgeable but does not have the bedside manner and warmth that I would expect to make a younger patient comfortable. He barely had my son in his chair for 5 minutes when he decided that he'd be going to the hospital. There was no warmth or attempt to help him feel comfortable before placing the gas mask on. I would only suggest this dentist for patients who are pre-teen or older. Plus, I was hoping that there would be some entertainment (TV, video game etc.) for him, but instead there was an old space mobile. The office needs to be updated, the equipment is also outdated and in general this is not a place for little kids despite what the small playroom suggests.
Quiet,caring paediatric dentist. Does excellent work. Not willing to coax my child through the procedure, though, cancelled the appointment and then insisted on in-hospital completion of work. Office staff are polite and professional, but not at all willing to flex on their policy. This was not helpful when dealing with ex-spouse's refusal to forward insurance payments or otherwise reimburse me; since the office staff and/or Dr. Westman were unwilling to do direct billing for in-office procedures, it was not possible to have any return visits.
Dr.Westman and his staff are wonderful! I recommend this dentist to anyone with children. The hygienist took her time to explain different dental procedures and put myself and son at ease. It seems he treats his staff and patients with respect. I will continue to bring my children there for as long as possible, and will recommend Dr.Westman to everyone. He is Fabulous!!
I would recommend Dr Westman to anybody looking for a great children's dentist. They understand that children can be scared and they make them feel relaxed. All the staff are very helpful and with great all around service. My children don't mind going to the dentist now, not like before at other places. Thank you for your kindness. I am so glad I was recommended to you. Keep up the great work.
I took my children to Dr. Westman when they were younger and did not like him at all.I found him too quiet and did not make my children feel comfortable.I changed dentists.The staff gossip too much and talk too much behind patients. Not very professional.I would definetely not recommend anyone to bring there children to Dr. Westman. I was not impressed.
