Looking for a dentist can be such a drainer,downer and maddening experience. Dentists have always in my opinion had this negative stigma attached to them for a long time some for obvious reasons,others not so obvious. The high desert is no exception when looking for a dentist. If you need a root canal this place does not do the procedure but they do work with an endodontist that is an excellent caring and efficient dentist of which I too enjoy going too, although the staff can be rough around the edges at times, that's the least of worries since they are not performing the root canal. The lack of enthusiasm is made up for with the performance of the endodontist.Now, on to the review of Dr Scoggins DDS, upon entering the office you will 99% of the time always be greeted with a nice hello and eventually even by your first name which by the way puts you almost at ease or edge of walking into "THE DENTIST" office. The office clean, not very big but the flow of patients is always properly managed so you never will walk into the office with standing room only, which is what most dentist office have. Once signed in you are usually called into your appt within 10 minutes usually, if running behind Melissa or someone else will let you know that the moment they know anything, but this generally doesn't happen. At least in my 3 years of going there. There patient chairs all have videos to watch during your procedure to keep you preoccupied. Teeth cleaning , x-rays, crowns is a no pain process, Dr Scoggins is always very pleasant and down to earth, very caring, she will give you her cell # if need for emergency questions or meds for a toothache but always told to use it responsibly. When it comes to kids our son is a chicken when it comes to dentists , but not here - she has a way of treating kids with just the right voice inflection to calm any worries the tykes may have, my daughter always comes back with a positive experience. Trust me you'll enjoy coming here. Again, if you need a root canal come here anyways and they willake an appt with their trusted endodontist, they work great together.
