I went to the Buckhead Smile Center due to a crown that had fallen off. I saw Dr. Negalow that said it was impossible to re-cement it and I would need posts to prevent the crown to fall off again. He said that it was the only way. I trusted him since he is an "experienced professional". Paid $1,131.40 out of pocket since my insurance only covered $639.60. I was told that I had to pay before the treatment begins, so I did that and scheduled an appointment for 03/29/2014. I asked for a sooner appointment but they said it was impossible. I still asked for a temporary re-cement of the crown but they also said that it was OK to leave the way it was since I had a root canal. So, today I returned to the office to listen from Dr. Negalow that he had made a wrong diagnose on my tooth. He said that he could not have left that tooth uncovered for so long and that now the tooth was leaking. He said that now I would need to have the tooth extracted and replaced it with a bridge or an implant. Definetely it was the worst experience I had with a dentist in my life. Luckily, Dr. Wingfield (owner) offered me an appointment to repair the situation. He was very kind and professional, showing me a different approach to my case.

I have always had problems with my teeth. I put off going to the dentist for years but once I found Dr Steve I now enjoy having good dental health. He explains everything before he does it and also puts my needs first. He has hands of gold because he is so gentle with a needle and drill. I love him! He has saved my teeth!

As a 61-year old patient with a long history of complex dental procedures by several dentists in various locations, I have a good frame of reference regarding competency, professionalism, cosmetic enhancement, pain management, and overall health management in dental treatment. Dr. Wingfield has been my general dentist for the past 9+ years, and he has literally transformed my appearance, dental health, and not coincidentally, my self-confidence. He has implemented treatment strategies that have improved my appearance, bite and oral hygiene while preserving and strengthening existing teeth where possible. He has also coordinated oral surgeries and other advanced procedures as necessary with excellent outcomes. Cost estimates, billing and follow-up with insurance have always been explained thoroughly, before, during, and after treatments. Dr. Wingfield provides the same excellence in care to my immediate family and many friends, and I cannot recommend him more highly. Love the remodeled, high-tech office at Buckhead Smile Center!
