Anyone know of a good dentist in the area?
We're both happy with Rill Banks, who's got his office in the Destin/Miramar Beach area.
Ive heard good things about Dr. Rudder, in Seagrove Beach. I've used Dr. Chicerelli, but wouldn't recommend her! I'll be getting another, myself.
Dr. Michael O'Donnell at 622-5888
Great, young dentist who is knowledgeable, talented, and eager to build his practice. (The leather exam chairs are also extremely comfortable.)
Dr. Mike O'Donnell is one half of a husband/wife team. Dr. Lan O'Donnell is an optometrist who has a full-service eye care practice in the same building. She is also knowledgeable and talented. Her # is 622-4000.
Their practice is located at 870 Mack Bayou Rd. just about 1/2 mile from the hospital.
Robert Ratliffe in the Waterside business center on 98, 850-622-2226.
Gary Crosson by Butler, 850-267-3133.
Dr. Ruder in Seagrove is the best I've ever been to. He is out of this world good with my 7 year old and a heck of a guy to boot.
Crosson is not taking any new patients,,,,,,try Dr O'Donnell he is wonderful
Isn't "Good Dentist" an oxymoron?
I guess that depends on the quantity of laughing gas issued.
Dr.Ratcliff in Waterside Business Center is great. I took my son to Dr. O'Donnell and they were terrible with my little boy. Very rude and just down right mean to him. I would not recommend him at all.
I had the complete opposite experience with Dr. O'Donnell. My three kids ages 9, 8, 6 had a great experience. I know several other families with children who have been to Dr. O'Donnell and they all like him and his staff. They were great with my kids.
Dr. Jeff Kates is very good. He even does house calls. Dr,Kattes has 3 offices in penscola and is looking to set one up here around destin/sowal.
I wonder if he brings his dental hygenist along, and if they bring the fancy toothbrush and spit bowl too?
I've recently started seeing Dr. O'Donnell. I have to say it has been one of my best dental experiences. I'm VERY pleased with Dr. O'Donnell and his staff. I had an appointment this morning...finishing up a root canal...and I'm back at work this afternoon! No pain, no need for meds.
They have bent over backwards to accommodate my schedule and are great about calling and reminding you of appointments.
I also plan to make an appointmen with his Wife....need to have the eyes checked...
I can chime in and recommend Dr. Ruder and Dr. Radcliff. I've used Ruder and he is very good especially if you're terrified of the dentist like me. He is pretty pain-free but not above laughing at your sweaty palms... ;-) Kids and hubby use Radcliff and we are happy with him as well. Very sweet staff and he is a nice guy too.
I think Dr. O'Donnell maybe very good, but his staff were very rude and not very nice to my son. I strongly recommend Dr. Ratcliff. They were extremely accomodating to me and very very nice to my son.
So sorry to hear of your experience...I feel very bad for your son. I can totally relate (with me, and with my son). Going to the dentist is scary enough without the staff being mean, especially for a child.
We use and are happy with Dr. Crosson, but it was mentioned earlier in this thread that he is not accepting new patients. I didn't know that.
Fred Ruder is your man bar none!!!!
