The staff was very professional and caring. They take care of you from start to finish. I had a crown lengthening and it was done precisely as needed. I love the warm lavender towels. It was a great experience. I felt like I was at a spa not a dental office.

About Front Desk: The girls at the front are friendly and caring. They do a great job of making you feel comfortable with treatment plans and helping with insurance.

The Treatment was successful. Both extraction and implantation procedure were almost pain free. The doctor is very professional.

About Front Desk: Front desk attitude is unacceptable. I will have to look for a new doctor for future procedures.

Arrogant and rude. Reluctant to answer patients' questions and address their concerns. Dr. Hosters must be either suffering from a god complex or arrogance is his nature.

About Front Desk: As above. Rude and unprofessional. The arrogance of dr. Hosters is rubbing off on his staff.

About Hygienist: Argumentative and unprofessional. In a serious need of customer service training.

I think Dr. Hoster is an okay dentist (though a bit defensive when asking questions) but the office policies and practices are very difficult. From Day One they hound you about making prepayments when setting appointment. They tell you how much your insurance will pay but tell you it's your problem if they don't. They filed the claim for the consultation as a "comprehensive exam" instead of a consultation, which means when I had my regular dental exam it was not paid because my 2 in a calendar year was exceeded. They do this because most insurance will not pay for a consultation if the specialist does a procedure, and they want to get paid for both. Then they filed a really poorly documented claim for the procedure and it was denied for months. I had to follow up continually. Then when it was paid, his fee was more than $200 over the maximum allowable for the area. My advice: Make sure you insist that they submit for pre-authorization (which they did not do with my claim.) They cost me more than an extra $300 in addition to my normal 20% copay. When my treated tooth was problematic, he said his role was to "hypothesize" about the problem but took no responsiblity for solving the problem ("I told you it might not work").

Dr. Hosters did a wonderful job with my dental implant in 2008. The procedure was painless (to my surprise) and recovery was a breeze. I am going back in the end of 2009 for another implant. I would definitely recommend him and his staff!!!
