This office is awful. My son was 4 and they rushed him through. The actual dentist spent 2 mins with us and then handed me a quote for $1000 of dental work. When I attempted to provide feedback they said I was not welcome there anymore. I left several messages for Dr la corte to discuss and he would not return my calls or emails. This man does not care about kids..he wants them in and out quickly to maximize profits!! Stay away!!

My daughter has enamel hypoplasia (defect) on her teeth and has had many crowns. Dr. La Corte is so great she looks forward to getting her teeth fixed because he makes them feel better. He just put braces on her this week and we were in and out in one hour. He is a one stop shop for all dental care and it makes kids feel comfortable because they know everyone. I trust him completely!

Dr. LaCorte did work on our daughters teeth when determined with xrays she had some small cavities. She had to drink oral sedation liquid to have the work done. It was unsuccessful and instead of encouraging or discussing other options with us on what would be best for her, he continued to replace the fillings after unsuccessful work which then led to an abscess which led to a extraction and 3 crowns from our new dentist we changed too. I can't say how hurtful this was to her and us as parents. She was out with anethesia for 2.5 grueling hrs getting her work done, which was also replacing the fillings that weren't done correctly in the 1st place. I had taken her back and forth for nearly 1yr, having them replaced. She was 5 at that time and without proper communication between the Dr. and us, the outcome was devistating. now 2 yrs later the teeth that were 1st filled with by Dr. LaCorte are now crowned and another abscess has come from this, which will now result in another extraction! After filing a complaint with the AZ. State Dental Board he is still a dentist. It's heartbreaking and not to mention its been a HUGE expense for us. If only he had counciled us or turned us away I have to believe the outcome would have been better

I would not recommend taking young children to Dr. La Corte. This was my sons very first visit (just under 2 years old) to the dentist and I was seeking a happy , non-scary experience for him . The Dr. came in and did not introduce himself to me and did not attempt to warm up to my son; he did not ever ask what brought me to the office, he simply requested that I hold my son in a position so he could look into his mouth. I tried to explain to him that part of the reason I was visiting a dentist was to try and get some tips and ideas as to how to look in his mouth and brush/clean his teeth without a major struggle. Without an answer he instructed me again to comply so he could take a look. My son cried frantically, screamed, and struggled to get away as the Dr continued the exam, not allowing my son to emerge or take a breather (even after I asked the Dr. to pause the exam). I think I said something that let the Dr. know I was not pleased with his "method" to which the Dr. responded, "With that attitude you might as well keep him locked up." He went on to say that "kids are resilient and that they don't remember things at this age." I will choose a Dr. that is gentle and cares enough not to create 'forgettable' experiences.

The treatment provided to my son was very poor and very expensive. Some of it had to be redone within a week of the original treatment. Staff was not very friendly.

Very expensive when prepared to other places. The dental assistants are great with kids. I had a bad experince with the office which I was warned about before going. Overall, I decided not to have my son's dental work done there because of the price.

There should be a course in dentestry school that tells you excatlly how to be a great dentist. All they would need to do is visit the Le Corte office. My kids are affraid of thier doctor but they can't wait to go to thier Dentist. Michael is a great dentist and relates very well with my children. The staff is always great and the office is a fun place to be. We arrive eairly and leave late cause my kids love his office.

Dr. LaCorte is conscientious, fun, and cares about his patients. He provides a very comfortable atmosphere for my children and is wonderful when dealing with them and his service team are some of the best. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
