I visited Dr. Simone because I had pain in a molar. He showed me old photos of that tooth taken in 2009 that revealed a crack in the root. He had filled that tooth back then, and it had held fine ever since; however, I had been putting undue pressure on that molar when I adjust my neck, which I do habitually. On this recent visit, instead of giving me a crown as many dentists would have done, he adjusted my bite according to how I adjust my neck so that I would limit the pressure on that tooth. He told me to also avoid that tooth when chewing and to see how it feels in a week. If the pain subsides, he just helped me avoid a major invasive crown procedure and gave me more life in my natural tooth. Then he sent me out the door without charging me a dime. Where else can you find a dentist like that?

About Front Desk: Vicky is a gem. She keeps that office running like a top. She is very accommodating and friendly and is always a pleasure to work with. My family and I really enjoy visiting with her before and after our appointments.

Hygiene rating:

About Hygienist: Dr. Simone does our cleanings. He photographs the teeth with a small, oral camera to keep a visual record of our oral health and has a computerized tracking system to record all relevant data. He can then display the photos on a large screen so that each of us can see what he sees and be informed of anything noteworthy.

I know this doctor: At least 8 years

The dentist is so full of himself. He does not accept any insurance because he's too good to be part of any network but his own. During treatment, he spends half the time talking about how great he is. He's a master in promoting himself and an excellent salesman. He's also very expensive. There's a payment plan but be prepared to pay up right away to be treated politely by the dentist as well as his help. Be careful of the help because she bites. The dentist claims that he gets sooo many patients that he doesn't care about losing a few every year. Just know that they don't really care about you.

About Front Desk: The help at the front desk ought to learn how to be helpful. She treats people however she feels appropriate and the dentist won't say a thing to back up the patients. Good help must be hard to find these days. It's very likely that she has only worked for this one dentist in the past 10 years and clearly needs to learn what customer service is. She has a bigger say in what goes on in the office than the dentist does. It's Ridiculous!! It doesn't help for her to be sweet with the dentist! Hey, what about your patients?

Hygiene rating:

About Hygienist: The dentist spent much of that cleaning time talking than cleaning. The first time was great but other subsequent cleanings were unsatisfactory. There're no hygienist or dental assistant to help. Most importantly, my mouth doesn't feel clean after his cleaning.

Hygiene time: 20

I know this doctor: 6 months

Dr. Simone has treated my wife, my daughter, and me for several years. He has always provided the best care at a very affordable price. I am confident in his expertise and appreciate his devotion to his field and the patients he serves. His clinic is clean and his staff is extremely pleasant. I would recommend him to anyone who wants professional, pain-free, affordable care for their dental needs.

This is the best dentist, and dentist office I have ever gone to, HANDS DOWN. I saw dr. Simone many years ago, and when my insurance switched I saw other dentists who completely screwed up my teeth. I came back to dr. Simone because he is the best of the best. I don't care that he is not in my insurance network, I will NEVER see another dentist. He is the only dentist I trust to even go near my teeth. I'm so happy to be in good hands again after suffering all these years through terrible pain, and awful experiences with a number of other dentists. Thank you smile maker dental for everything...you guys are absolutely amazing!

Has to be the best in the area -- no doubt. Everything about him and the office makes it a good experience. Very knowledgeable, professional and takes good care of everyone. He is perfectionistic, takes pride in his work and makes everyone feel comfortable. I can't imagine a more stress free experience while at the dentist. Vicky, his support staff, is wonderful to work with also.

Dr. David Simone is clearly the brightest, the most competent and personable dentist I have known. He puts you at ease the minute you enter the office with his warm and caring personality. His extensive explanations of your condition, your short-term and long -term options for treatment and preventative care, are respectfully and clearly stated. Costs, time commitments, and long-term ramifications of treatment choices, are also clearly stated. Most importantly, for those patients who tend to avoid trips to the dentist due to anxiety, and the mere sound of the drill can send you running, Dr. Simone is the dentist for you. His comfortable office, the distraction of the TV, music and his engaging conversation, puts you at ease and entertains you through the most complex dental procedure. You hardly feel like you are at the dentist! Also, his staff is lovely, and works with you to negotiate payment and insurance issues. And - they always accommodate you for appointments for any dental issue and they phone you to remind you of your appointments.

About Hygienist: NA Dr. Simone performs all cleanings and procedures.

I know this doctor: 12+ years
