Reviews of Northwoods Dental

1 Andrea does not live-up to the friendly and professional image of Northwoods Dental. by Mary - 05/18/2014

After twenty plus years of being with Dr. Scharf's office my family will be leaving because of an encounter with Andrea. Her tone and attitude were highly unprofessional and condescending. I don't have a problem with the policy, I do have a problem with the way I was treated. I really like Dr. Baldwin and the rest of the staff. I am not a person to complain but this incident made me want to walk out of the office on the spot! If I wouldn't have been between a temporary and permanent crown I would have done just that. I would rather change dentists than have to deal with Andrea even one more time. Mary

1 just say no! by jaclyn frost - 11/27/2013

I should have never tried this place! I have been three times for annual cleaning and am so upset with how I have been treated. They are very nice at first, but turn condescending when you opt out of recommendations. I felt this was very unprofessional to pressure people about treatments. When I told them no I didn't want to book an appointment for the work they told me I needed done (only because I was not sure I believed them that I needed to have so much done-again first time, just saw my dentist 6 months prior with no news of all this work that I was in supposed need of) they had me go into a room and two different people came through to convince me. Very uncomfortable which I told them. For some reason I came back, and they were very cold and short with me (I'm sure they saw on my notes). It was as if the dentist had an attitude of like well you didn't listen to me last time so why try. My insurance pays them for cleanings, and I shouldn't have to feel bad about anything I am still a paying patient there for a service. Then today, was going to go in for another cleaning. I had to cancel, so I called. The woman (business manager) was very pressuring in the way she was trying to get me to not cancel. I don't feel I need to be questioned so much when I am trying to do the right thing and let them know. No customer service, no thanks for letting us know (I said thank you, she replied "sure") I am never going back. And I want to save people who care about being treated well the trouble of going through how fake of a place this is!

5 You guys are awesome by RandolphDuff - 09/14/2013

You guys are awesome, the lady I saw was very nice. The front desk is very friendly also. A great dental office in Plymouth!

5 Maximum 50 characters by RandallNorth - 09/08/2013

Going to the dentist doesn't really seem to be anyone's favorite thing to do. In fact, most of my life, I have always dreaded my appointment weeks before it even came. However, since I have started going to Northwoods, I take better care of my teeth, I don't dread my appointments, and I even feel like I'm heading to check in and catch up with friends. Thanks Northwoods.

5 Everyone is so friendly by ChesterWaters - 08/29/2013

Everyone is so friendly. Excellent service. How GREAT to have someone come in and explain the charges BEFORE the Tx plan is initiated! I can't say enough about the great service and experience at NW Dental J

1 Dr Scharf and his office staff are out to sell big!! Make SURE you get the full cost ahead of time. by Mr Molar - 08/12/2013

Dr Scharf started treatment without informing me of the full cost ahead of time. He left me with a temporary crown so that I was not able to shop around. Be very, very careful, he and his assistant Andrea are very slick and smooth.Get a specific, accurate, written estimate before you allow him to proceed! If you are dissatisfied then Andrea has a memorized response and she will inform you that they have covered all the legalities. You've been warned.

1 Poor service with unpredictable billing. by Consumer - 02/04/2013

Make sure to discuss about the cost before you meet the doctor. My wife went for a clarification after initial checkup doctor advised her without telling her that the clarification would be billed and how much it will be billed. They billed more than The dentist I visited so far will let me know the price before they do anything regardless of whether it is 1st visit or 10th visit.

5 Great Experience by J.S. - 01/29/2013

I had my teeth cleaned today at Northwoods Dental. This is not an appointment I normally look forward to, but I had a really pleasant experience. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and on time (which I really appreciate). I had some questions for Dr. Scharf and he was really patient explaining all the details about the procedure I was inquiring about. It was actuually sort of relaxing, which was a really great way to get my day started.

3 An extra appointment at an extra cost by KT - 04/14/2011

My insurance ignorant husband was told when he came in for a cleaning that he should schedule a "deep cleaning" appointment in addition to the one he was there for (which was supposed to be a "normal cleaning/check up".) Needless to say, most insurances only cover one "check up" every six months and the deep cleaning wasn't that much different, but of course was a much bigger cost out of our pocket. Not that they are crooked, I just don't think they REALLY had our best interest in mind. Never had problems before and times are hard, but still...

5 Professional, friendly, and efficient: three things I found at Northwoods by DiscGuy - 01/22/2010

A few months ago I met with Dr. Scharf to discuss a new product his dental office was offering called Under Armour Performance Mouthwear. I had read some literature on it and was a bit skeptical as to whether or not it would work. I am a recreational weightlifter who was looking to find ways to improve my performance in the gym. This mouthwear was supposed to help me lift more weight!?! After messing around with supplements that didn't work and personal trainers who weren't vested in my success, I decided to look into this "mouthwear". Dr. Scharf was very thorough in explaining how the mouthwear worked and if it was the right thing for me. At no point did I feel as though he was trying to "sell" me something. I decided to give it a try, and man, did I make a good decision. Without a doubt, my performance in the gym went to the next level. Without boring you with too many details, the best way I can describe the effectiveness is that my last few rep of each set got much stron
