    BEWARE
    katelyne (2 reviews)
    12/08/2011

    I went to Desert Dental after finding them in my insurance provider list. I had chipped one of my back molars and needed it filed down so it wasn't sharp against my tongue. Desert Dental was able to see me immediately, so I went in. Let me just say BEWARE. In addition to the overall bad feeling I got, Dr. Benjamin was very pushy and tried to get me to do more work than I had requested. Fortunately, I was uncomfortable and insisted he only file down my chipped tooth. He told me I had several cavities, and even took me in back to show me my "cavities" with a little camera. I kept telling him to only file my chipped tooth because I was planning to see my usual dentist the following month and I'd have him do my routine cleaning and take care of any cavities I might have. He finally gave up. When I saw my regular dentist the following month, I told him about what happened and asked if I had any cavities. My dentist said my teeth were in perfect condition and he was glad I held my ground and didn't allow Dr. Benjamin to do the work he wanted to do. Desert Dental is not trustworthy and I think Dr. Benjamin is an unethical, dishonest dentist.

    Rude staff

    Worst dental office I've ever been too, seriously! The blond girl at the front desk is the rudest person I've ever met, she should find a job in a prison, it would fit better her personality.

    Probably the worst dental practice in Nevada...

    What an a horrible experience! Dr. Benjamin is a snake oil salesman, and probably a quack. He is all about the money - no the patients. The work he did on me lasted 4 visits, and the problem is STILL not corrected. I finally went to a real dentist and got the problem fixed in 30 minutes. The new dentist didn't want to bad-mouth Dr. Benjamin, but he couldn't help himself. He said he'd never seen such shoddy work. My gums were inflamed, he didn't complete the root canal correctly, and just kept refilling pain meds. Nice job. Oh, but the office is clean. I caution anyone before going to see this guy. FIND ANOTHER DENTIST WHO IS NOT LOOKING TO GOUGE PATIENTS.

    I would highly recommend Dr. Benjamin and his office for any dental work that one might need. They are one of the most caring, knowledgable and understanding group of people in a dentist office I have ever gone to.
