"If I could give 0 stars I would Everything in the place of business went well. Only had $160 worth of work done paid $100 up front and billed the rest and DentalWorks ran my girlfriend and I debit card for $400. After I get my money returned that they stole from me I will never be returning to this location ever again. I wouldn't recommend going here unless you want your money stolen!"- Anonymous / Facebook / Aug 11, 2017
"People, please read this full review, as I am just wanting to help others out. Like whoever is reading this, I looked up reviews on Dental Works before I went too. I was so so happy the day I got treated here because the office staff was so nice and Dr. O'Brien made me feel so comfortable! The lady that cleaned my teet...h was super nice and patient with me too! Now, accidents happen all the time, but I was charged $400, significantly over the amount I authorized or had work done for. I understand that errors occur, we are all human. What disappoints me is how it was handled. Office staff had a complete personality change over this, mind you, something out of my control and by no means my error! My goodness, today when I walked in to discuss this matter with them, I didn't even get a hello. I was simply told to sit down. Because of their error, again a significant amount of money, my bank account has an issue now. Dental works told me they authorized the refund and so forth but I've met with my bank local and spoken regional and they haven't gotten a refunded payment come through yet. I know that refunds take several business days, but there isn't anything even pending yet, and again their error has messed up my finances until I get paid again. I pray that it goes through and they are being totally honest with me. Regardless though, this was handled unprofessionally. I've gotten laughed at, snarled faces, etc. and all that I MYSELF did was give this place a try as a new patient. In fact, the blame got on everybody else except them! They blamed the bank they do their financials with, then it was my bank's fault, blah blah blah. Sitting in the office today, I was told that they don't keep any checks or money in their office for refunds, etc. but office manager had just right before stated that she was at the bank for Dental Works just like every Friday?? When I asked her to get her boss or the bank they work with on the phone while I was present, she absolutely would not do it and after demanding she do it 4 or 5 times, she finally leaves the office, goes who knows where because "she can't call that particular extension from her phone" ummm your office phone is functional and I just saw calls coming in on it?? Seems weird!!! Obviously, going by the reviews on here, noone has had this particular issue. My warning to everybody out there though is that if it happened to me and this is how it was handled, it could happen to you. I don't want to get any service provided to me from people who can turn on you at the drop of a hat for THEIR own mistake. Right is right and wrong is wrong. And to make me wait on that kind of amount of money for days after you made such a "boo boo" is just not right. Good luck Dental Works patients. See More"- S.M. / Facebook / Aug 11, 2017

"After 2 years I finally am back at a dental office I feel comfortable with (my dental plan changed and my prior dentist didn't accept the new one). My exclusive dental plan requires me to use one of only two "chain" dental companies in my area. My experience at the chain across the street was horrific and I was weary o...f attempting another. I'm glad I did!! I had a perfect dental experience at Dentalworks -Spartanburg!! My teeth are cleaned, I have no cavities (strange since the "other" told me I had 4 ?), I don't have gingivitis (strange since the other told me I did ... are we seeing a pattern here). Love the staff and the environment at Dental Works!! See More"- B.S. / Facebook / Jul 11, 2017

What to Expect
A thorough dental exam will start with a discussion between our dentist and the patient. Our dentist will ask about the patient's health, including any current medications, illnesses or surgeries. Our dentist will ask the patient to find out if they have noticed any areas of concern. To get a complete picture of the individual's mouth, our dentist will take digital X-rays to view the teeth, gum, and bones. A visual check of the mouth with palpation will also help in checking signs of oral decay or disease. The probing tool will be used to check the condition of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and identifying areas of recession.
If our dentists find any areas of concern during the dental consultation, they will talk to the patient about possible treatment plans that may be performed at DentalWorks - Spartanburg or at the patient's home. Progress will be important so that the patient can continue to improve their dental health. If a patient has ongoing issues our dentists may suggest that he or she visit a oral surgeon or specialist.
The billing coordinators at DentalWorks - Spartanburg will contact the patient's dental insurance company to consult with and confirm all out of pocket fees prior to the visit. DentalWorks - Spartanburg offers payment programs to help assist with the expenses.
