Bummer Lynne, Try Craig Schraeger. His office is in Old Mammoth Road, next to The Stove restaurant.

Thanks each of you for your input. I super appreciate it!!!

A great dentist is almost more difficult to find than a physician.

Schrager has put crowns in both my wife and I. 20 yrs later they are still intact. Also Mark Zila. Ron Kaylor put two temporary crowns on my bottom left molars 15 years ago, they too are still intact !( all these guys were in Mammoth, dont know if they still practice there).. Kaylor has been known to barter also. ( im thinking TPR pies would be a good trade !)

^If you've never had any problems, why you been going there?

Because he's "gentle"?

I'm thrilled and happy. Went to the dentist yesterday and he not only made my chipped top front tooth look like new he gave the other hair line fractured front tooth next to it a whole new look also.

My two front teeth haven't looked this good in many years. I researched all the dentists recommended and went with Dr. Schrager because I needed Mammoth's closeness and several locals gave me some excellent reviews.

Dr. Schrager has a friendly, efficient staff that fit me in the day after I called. In my opinion he does great work. For the time he spent on my teeth I felt his price was more than fair. I also felt he wanted the outcome to look as good as I did.

The views out his various dental rooms are beautiful and calming. I'm sure the other Dentist's would have been great too, but this guy is also an athlete and knew some of my local friends.

Thanks again everyone for your time and input. Cheers, Lynne
