Ratings for Dr. S. Mawashi
I saw Dr. Mawashi for a second opinion. I had been told I had a ‘catastophic’ crack in my tooth by another dentist and I was booked for an immediate extraction, that was going to be ‘extremely difficult’, and I was told I needed an implant. No other option. I made an appointment with Dr. Mawashi and was immediately put at ease by his friendly, caring and knowledgeable staff. He agreed that my tooth needed to be extracted, but said I could wait and see about an implant. He was confident and if he was worried about the extraction being difficult, he never let on. I didn’t feel the freezing, and I didn’t have any idea that my root canaled tooth had shattered because of the break, and thst the roots had also split. Everything was removed (proven by X-ray), it cost me half as much as the estimate I was given at the other office, and that night I went out for dinner with visiting family. I trust this Dentist.
My experience had been fairly good until my last visit. A new female dentist joined the practice and did my exam. She found and very quickly fixed a small cavity which completely fell out 4 days later. It was a weekend, so the office voice mail directed me to the "Emergency doctor on duty" at another clinic. I could not return to Dr Mawashi's office since I was leaving early on Monday fora four-month visit to the US. That dentist spent 3 times as long fixing the cavity but did it well. The truly maddening thing is that Mawashi's office never responded to two requests for a refund. My insurance would not pay for the repair since they only cover one filling in any one tooth within a 12-month period. I'm stuck with $166 for a filling that lasted 4 days. Even professionals have to stand behind their services, so I'll be looking for another dentist.
Daughter had 4 fillings done in less than 10 minutes. No freezing. Full charges for all fillings. Office girl said because he was so good he could work faster. Left his practice for another. Found out that he just covered cavities and our new dentist had to repair them properly. Do not recommend Dr.Mawashi.
Said I had 12 cavities, when I have never had any in the past. My current dentist confirmed if I did have any cavities they were very, very tiny and possibly not necessary to fix. One of the cavities was on my front tooth and now they on even more uneven because he grinded away part of the tooth and the filling/cap will not stay for longer than a month. He Insulted my smile and told me I should get my teeth fixed because they are not straight. This guy is a wanna be business man, looking to take your insurance company for a ride taking every penny he can squeeze out of a patient. He is a very bad, uncaring dentist with a horrible bedside manner. Stay away.
Dr. Mawashi was horrible. The tone of voice and choice in comments I found very disrespectful. He was very negative and I found very impatient. I also found him very stuck up. horrible experience with him and will never go back and will also never referrer him to anyone.
Dr. Mawashi is AMAZING! He was very thorough and very caring. He listens carefully to all of my concerns regarding procedures and answers all questions. The dental office staff are very friendly and efficient. I am excited to go in for my next cleaning appointment in six months!
Screwed up my cap and post, now I look like a beaver missing a half a front tooth. Worse, because of his error, tried to shave my good teeth down to make up for the tooth that was made too big. I tried pointing it out and he used the staff to apply pressure tactics on me to accept the outcome. What a disappointment. Now I am in search of a "real " dentist.
Today I walked out of Dr. Mawashi's office never to return! About 2 months ago I had a full checkup at this dentist with no cavities or problems, today I came in with a rough spot on a tooth to get it smoothed. I pointed out the spot and Dr. Mawashi smoothed it off. I was charged $32.00 for the smoothing and $131.00 for me to point out the spot and Dr. Mawashi to say yes I see it! This was considered an exam hence the cost. I asked if they were joking and they said no this was the rate so I paid and left never to return. Draw your own conclusions before you make an appointment. I plan to tell everyone I know!
Dr. Mawashi is a fantastic dentist. I lost my old dentist when she retired and have been looking for someone to fill the void and Dr. Mawashi does. Even my old dentist likes and respects the care I'm given. Expensive yes ... but then most of the good dentist are.
