Tufts Dental School Patient Care
1 Kneeland St, Boston, MA 02111
Superb dental care, great rates, the only downside is things take more time. I don't mind waiting, but if you do, I'd suggest private practice instead

I would have put all of this information on Tufts patient feedback site or filled it out as a follow-up patient care questionnaire, but neither seems to exist. As a teaching institution, this seems strange. As their website says, you get high quality care at Tufts. And yes, the number of appointments that are required are tough but a small price to pay for their reasonable rates. I have to keep in mind, though, that I am basically a practice dummy and that my mouth is the student dentist's classwork. This has meant that patient communication and "chair side" manner is often lacking. Sometimes I go to appointments not knowing what is going to be done. Sometimes procedures that were done the previous appointment are done again with no clear explanation. I think I got my teeth cleaned 4 times in 4 separate appointments. Clearly cleaning is important but it seemed inexplicable (and wasn't explained) why 4 appointments were needed. Mistakes like broken molds require another visit that puts off treatment for a month or so. Crowns may or may not be done (which could happen for any dental procedure) but there seems to be no system for calling patients to let them know that the appointment should be cancelled for a later date). Trying to confirm or cancel an appointment is almost impossible on their phone system. Although the students who have worked on my mouth are very nice individuals and are clearly well-trained and competent, I have often wished that they would communicate better what work they are doing as they are doing it and communicate what the next steps will be in a more collaborative manner. I guess what I am saying is that I wished I was treated more like a person with a dental condition than a dental condition that happens to be attached to a person. Finally, beware the dragon at the front desk. It's her job to collect money, but asking for print outs of procedures performed, charges made and paid, and any insurance payment is met with a rare form of hostility that is magnificent in its passive aggressiveness. Again, however, Tufts is quality care at a reasonable cost.

I have been under care at Tufts Dental School since Feb. I went in for a partial. I have been told numerous times now why I don't yet have my partia,l but none of these senarios make sense, and I still don't have my partial. The young woman who is working with me called yesterday stating that I should not keep today's appointment because she needs to talk to her supervisor about me. My last appointment was May 10th., and they were going to call me when my partial was back from the lab. No call. I called them some time ago for today's appointment which is now cancelled. Now I am teaching a class, and I have gaping holes on either side of my canines.

When I found out I had to have my wisdom teeth out, I went to a private practice down the road from where I live in Vermont. I heard great things about them and they were true; they were very kind and helpful. The consult showed all four teeth were impacted and only one was slightly erupted. They set the date for January 9th and the price at $3,000(!!!). I have no dental insurance yet this seemed very steep. I looked into the waiver from the state and it would be months before I could even be seen by the only oral surgeon in the area who accepted the waiver. That's when I decided to look into Tufts. My aunt had work done there and said they were phenomenal. I was a little worried about students working on my teeth, being a student myself, but it would be worth the two hour drive if it was cheaper. They reccommend being there at 7am to sign in for the 9am clinic. I got there at 8:30am and was seen promptly at 9. The student that saw me was great and asked all the preliminary questions before the teacher came in and checked all his work over. After the formalities of the clinic, I was brought up to oral surgery. The student that saw me was just as awesome. We went through much of what I had already been asked and a new teacher came forward. Just by looking around at the teachers, one can tell they are all very experienced and love what they do. This particular one made sure to allow the student to lead while stepping in with things she forgot. I was given way more information about the surgery then I had been told by the private practice doctor. The Tufts teacher also noticed I had a slight infection, which went unnoticed in Vermont! I was there for a total of three hours, with no more than 30 minutes of waiting at a time. My appointment is set for January 8th (even though I went two weeks later than my first consultation!) and the price is $1,300!! I will have the same anesthesia by IV as the private practice. Everything about my trip was completely worth my time and I recommend anybody who is skeptical to trust this hospital! Knowing that you are assisting in the teaching of future dentists and surgeons only sweetens the deal!

So I've just returned from the first dental visit I've had in 20 years... The hygienist and dentist both commented on the superior dental work I have in my mouth. Thank you students, your work has truly stood the test of time.

very dissatified with the care recieved at this university...i will say the first student i had was excellent but she graduated and i was assigned a new student who did not care about my dental care as much as he cared about his requirements. he was not educated on how long other processes take in other departments and as a result the game plan on me changed several times resulting in my loss of insurance allowances for that calendar year. as the end of year came and the crowns had to be resent out and did not come back in time for placement. I was also told by the new student following this one (he was graduating now) that the repost i had upstairs did a bad job on my tooth...(this information was given to me without my even asking about tooth). I was always seen by the instructor on staff each visit which all had different opinions on the care to be provided ... so if you are lucky enough to get a good student you will do well, but if you are not, you are taking the chance of damage instead of good dental care.
