This is my first review of anything, considering my past experiences with dental offices this says a lot about the staff at Troy Family Dental. My wife and I are not fans of going to the dentist, she has been hounding me for a year to go to Dr. Boatman because of the great experience she has every time. It started a couple years ago when she had severe tooth pain on Christmas day when they were closed. She had never been to him, yet he was able to do what needed to be done to quickly relieve her pain and fixed the issue permanently within days. He has all the latest technology, taking care of most cavities with a laser, no need for shots or drills. The entire staff explains everything very well, they are always thorough. They work to get you the best price, discounts for those paying cash. They only do procedures when it is truly necessary if something can wait for a better time for you or your insurance they will wait. Communication is key and they are one of the best I have dealt with in any line of business hands down!
I have been having issues with my denture. Then I saw Dr. Boatman on Great Day talking about mini implants. So I called his office. Within 2 weeks, I had mini implants and was able to use my existing denture. The staff in is office are always smiling and very pleasant. I was very impressed with how quickly I was able to get an appointment and get my issues resolved. You couldn’t ask for better care! Dr. Boatman will always bring back that great smile in you!
My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Boatman for several years. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable. We know we will receive the best and safest dental care available.
Dr. Boatman and his staff took amazing care of my family for years and years. When my job took us away from the area, we were all sad to lose him as our dentist. Flash forward a few years to yesterday. I developed a tooth problem my dentist couldn’t get to the bottom of, so I called Dr. Boatman’s office and said if I drove 6+ hours to see him if they would work me in even though it had been a few years since I’d been a regular patient. Of course, they were more than happy to do so. To make a long story short, Dr. Boatman, as usual, expertly got to the root of the problems (pun intended) and this morning I awoke pain free! God bless Troy Family Dental…a level of service so rare in this day and age!
Best dentist I have ever had!
My husband Ryan told me about Dr. Boatman and thank goodness that he did. We were pretty unhappy with our dentist because we felt like he was not communicating well with us and just assumed we had unlimited dollars to spend on dental work. Ryan had a filling that cracked after a week or two and our previous dentist just said, “Yep, let’s just put a crown on it.” No explanation, no nothing. Just give me another $1200.
Dr. Boatman is very good at communicating with his patients and will work with you and the insurance companies. Thank you Dr. B.
