Ratings for Dr. P. JOEL Maes
He comes off nice, but He AND his staff have a terrible habit of jacking your bill up, even after you have agreed on a price & a plan. NO, I am not talking about him encountering something that naturally required more time & therefore more expense.. no, I am talking about BLATANT THEFT & PRICE GOUGING. He did it ti me & my wife on multiple occasions. He purposely makes his bills even more convoluted & confusing than even St. Peters hospital to hide his crimes. We threatened to take him before the board & he made our bill (mostly) right, a differenc of a few thousand. CROOK.
Dr. Maes is the premier dentist in Helena. His new associate, Dr.Sealey, is following in his footsteps. No dentist in Helena works harder at keeping up-to-date. His attendance at advanced seminars is recognized state-wide. Some suggest they were pressured into getting services they did not need. My experience is entirely different. He informed me of several options, and I made a decision. No pressure. Persons commenting about his staff obviously have an axe to grind. His staff is as friendly and helpful as any medical staff I have encountered in my 66 years. If you want the best, Dr. Maes is it.
The negative comments written below stem from a lack of knowledge. Dr. Maes does more pro bono work than any dentist in the North West. He was awarded the Humanitarian Award by the Academy of General Dentistry along with the Clinical Excellence Award. In addition is considered to be in the top 100 dentist in the nation and does more for his community than anyone I have ever met. A great man with the most helpful and friendly staff I have dealt with in my 60 years of life. He has always been helpful whenever I have been struggling financially and is worried about my health first and foremost. I highly recommend this doctor, couldn't find a better man.
It is important to me to have a dentist that stays current with education and procedures. I know he uses only the best labs and materials that he trusts and will stand behind his care because of it. I trust him with my dental care explicitly. He and his staff explain options for my care so I can understand and make decisions that will work best for me.
Dr. Maes and Dr. Sealey are two of the finest dentists in Helena. They genuinely care for their patients. Both doctors have converted me from a dentist phobia person to someone who is in every six months for a cleaning and check-up. The front office staff has to be the best I have dealt with.
