I took my son here and was too ignorant to realize to trust my gut that this is awful. I took my son in, and they would not let me back with him. I could hear him screaming for me from the waiting room, he was papoosed down and scared. This is not ok! Especially not without a parent. They replaced a tooth, one that according to other dentists, should not have been messed with. And after one week, the cap/false tooth they installed fell out! Oh but don't worry I was charged for that cap and also the new cap! And on the second visit, dumb to go back I know, my baby wasn't sedated enough for the work to be done and screamed and fought the entire time. I went back with him on the second visit, but they wouldn't let me near the work area and when I started questioning things they escorted me to the lobby. Worst experience ever! My child was terrified of the dentist, thankfully we have moved and found someone who is helping to regain my child's trust.
Cost $250 - $499

My child had a pleasurable visit at the Lake Oconee Smile Center. The staff was very friendly. They showed us around the office. I was very comfortable with letting my child stay alone in the back. My child not only had clean white teeth but a great dental experience and now he loves going to the dentist! I have recommended this dentist to my family an all my friends.

Please do not take your children here. They don't let you go back with your children even if your child is crying and they are ripping off your insurance especially if you have Peachcare/Medicaid. They want you to pay extra for anestesia which is covered by all other dentists. Very unprofessional staff. Dentist is nice, but they are robbing you and its not worth it.

trust your gut!you aren't allowed to go back,which in itself is upsetting with very young ones.(even when they are crying) but the clincher is in the billing,they want to bill the patient for local injections other dentist include in procedures with codes even the ADA advises against medicaid says to use another code that they will pay for but they prefer the one that requires the patient to pay. no matter how nice the dentist may be, call around I did. this kind of billing is fishy. and that is not the kind of dentist I want my kid to see. If I can't trust them with somthing that simple, I sure can't trust them with my child

I am very upset!!! First to be told that I can not go back with my child on her first visit. It is the law that you can go any where with your child especially a minor! She just turned 4 for gods sake. My daughter later told me that the nurse held her hands down in her lap and told her to be quiet as well. My daughter is on medicaid and I was told to pay for her anesthia. Be aware that there ripping you off and medicaid. Anesthia is a narrative medical neccesity for children ages 0-18. Before this happens to you and your child ,or if it has happened to you. There is an investigation started on this Dr.. If you need advice or help you can contact me at blueeyedgirl261982@yahoo or contact your state wellfare office. Please do your research because looks and cleanliness are not everything.

My children have been seeing Dr. Lott at the Lake Oconee Smile Center for almost 3yrs. My teenager son has also had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Beal for orthodontics. The practice is very neat, the doctors are very knowledgeable, and the staff is very attentive. I am very please with the services provided.

What a wonderful addition to our area! Dr. Lott treated my children like gold and took the time to explain everything to me in wonderful detail. Now my kids look forward to going to the dentist. It's nice to know that they do braces too so when the time comes we don't have to change offices. I highly recommend this office.
