I cannot praise this office enough! I am very particular in choosing my providers based on the procedural/ insurance knowledge and customer service of the office staff as well as the expertise, personal attention, and care of the provider. After all, my insurance gives me hundreds of choices and I have to find one that suits my best interested.
From day 1 of requesting an appointment, all interactions have been friendly, knowledgeable, and the staff treats me like a customer instead of just a number. They check-in regularly with me to confirm my appointments and are quickly able to answer insurance questions. Dr. Leatham was thorough, friendly, and efficient in his care plan. I saw many other patients in the office, but I felt like I was the only one there. I even received a text message follow up from Dr. Leatham the day after my procedure checking in on pain and recovery.
Sure, I could probably save some money on co-pays with a cheaper dentist, but that meant more visits to the office, inferior technology and methods, and more pain. Time = money and it was not much more out of pocket than my previous dentist, so I see a huge value. Plus, I was able to get my crown done same day and Dr. Leatham was a pro at where to administer the Novocaine so my face wasn't completely numb and I could return to work. For a root canal, crown, and filling in one procedure, I expected much more pain, but it has been next to nothing compared to post procedure from past dentists.
Seriously, if you are looking for a lifelong dentist, pick Smiles for Life. I am very glad I did and they are getting me on the right track for having the best smile I can get.
