Ratings for Dr. Mark A. Odom
I have seen Dr Odom on several occasions, by referral and consultation to correct mistakes and errors performed by another dentist in Cary who had his license suspended and he closed the practice. I had seen this other dentist for over 20 yrs and thought he was proficient. Much to my surprise, no X-rays had been taken in over 5 years and the hygentist had said everything was great. I went back to Dr Odom to get his opinion and he graciously called his wife over, Dr Karen Bruggers, prostodentist, for her opinion. After X-rays, they both felt that there were multiple problems under the existing crowns placed by my former dentist. Their suggestion was to remove existing caps and see what was really going on. Imagine my surprise when I found that all the teeth under the caps were basically ruined and would need to be extracted. I am currently working on a long term plan with Dr Odom and Dr Brugger for implants where possible and at least 1 bridge, along with a fixed partial attached to 2 implants on the top. I have complete confidence in both Drs recommendations and their treatment plan. They are husband and wife, share some of the same staff, care about their patients, and look for the best solution to the problem, not necessarily the most expensive. I would highly recommend Drs Odom and Brugger to anyone and certainly encourage my family to see them if they have dental concerns. I only wish I had seen them sooner and I would not be paying for some other dentist's mistakes or lack of expertise.
I was referred to Dr. Odom. After examination he felt that I had a cracked tooth that would require extraction, but it would cost some additional money to make sure. He made it clear he couldn't make any guarantees without the additional steps- but felt it would just confirm what he suspected while spending good money on a likely un-repairable tooth. In my heart and mind, I agreed with him- later the tooth was extracted and found to be indeed cracked and VERY dead. In his correct diagnosis, Dr. Odom was thorough, professional, competent, as well as considerate of the expense. I later had an implant done. I would use or recommend Dr. Odom without reservation.
LOVE this office!! Went to Dr. Odom for a second opinion today, (had a bad vibe about another endodontist I had a previous consult with). I was so nervous about needing a root canal and Dr. Odom determined I did not need one immediately, (which was great news), but now even if I do end up needing root canal in the near future I will definately be going back to this office...the staff and the Dr. are very polite, thorough, and knowledgeable. I completely trust his opinion and again am SO glad I made the appointment. Whoever left the bad reviews on here must have mistaken his name for another doctor is all I can say.
I was seen by Dr Odom for my 1st and only root canal and it was nothing like the horror stories you sometimes hear! Dr Odom and his staff were very caring & professional. All my questions were answered and my tooth now feels fantastic! I understand that people & teeth are different.....situations can range from good to bad, but I cannot imagine how anyone would've thought Dr Odom(or his staff) were anything less than polite, caring, gentle, informative, professional & overall "just good people".
Dr. Odom was superb. He explained his thoughts related to my problem and helped guide me with issues related to treatment. Despite being able to make more money by following through with a treatment, he referred me to another provider and explained a better course of treatment. He spent extra time with me to go through options. Very caring, understanding professional.
Unprofessional, Rude, Cares nothing for the patient, Cared nothing about pain management - care nothing about patients rights!!! Hates Northeners. Felt like he enjoyed the power and the pain that he could control!!! Do Not see this Dentist!!!!!!!!
