I had a very negative experience with this dentist. Itā€™s my opinion that Dr. Lechner suggested a crown which probably should not been done due to the amount of damage to the tooth, this eventually resulted in the removal of the crown and subsequent implant. I incurred over $3500 worth of dental bills that I paid out of pocket. In addition, the office billed my daughter for a fluoride application and continued to do so after I told the assistant we did not order fluoride. This office uses antiquated methods for procedures compared to more advanced applications that dentists have options to use, which I believe was part of the reason my surgeries failed. I am changing the review to 2 stars because half of the implant procedure was done by a different specialist (implant abutment) and in addition the staff has always been very friendly. I would not recommend this dentist to anyone that needs implant work, and would get a second opinion if they suggest putting a crown on a tooth. In addition, I learned itā€™s best to choose a dentist that can do all the work in the same office so there is no finger pointing, so to speak, if something goes wrong.

This was my first time visiting this dentist. The staff was friendly and the doctor was the perfect gentleman. He took his time and set up a plan to put things in motion at my next visit. Iā€™m looking forward to my next visit. I truly recommend this place for all your dental work. ā¤ļø

I loved the early morning appointment and the dental hygienist was AMAZING. I hadnā€™t been there in a while and I was used to always rinsing especially because I tend to gag a lot BUT he eased all my worries about the new way the teeth get cleaned and my experience was GREAT!

How to ease dental phobia and needle fears

Being nervous or afraid to visit the dentist is very common ā€“ in fact, itā€™s so common thereā€™s a name for it: dentophobia. This type of phobia can range from mild to severe, and can cause shortness of breath, elevated heart rate and blood pressure, and other signs of anxiety, such as shaking or a sense of impending doom.


Causes of dental phobia and how to help your patients

Up to eight percent of Americans avoid seeing the dentist because of anxiety and fear. Although not all of those cases would be classified as dental phobia, a fear of the dentist is a very common issue that can lead to some very serious oral health problems. Letā€™s examine some of the causes of dental phobia, and what you can do to help your patients address it.
