I just visited Dr. Samer's office for a regular check-up and was so pleased with my experience, I thought I'd tell all you other people struggling to find a good dentist who takes SHIP insurance. The first time I went to this office (he shares with James Childress, DDS), Dr. Samer was just starting out and did the cleaning himself and it was generally a fine experience. Now, there are excellent hygienists who are in charge of the cleanings, and Dr. Samer comes in at the end to do a professional inspection for cavities etc. My hygienist, Deirdre, was great: very thorough, knowledgeable and informative. She also was generally friendly, if not a little talkative. But who knows, maybe that helps distract people who don't enjoy all the scraping and prodding. Though I walked away with 3 cavities, the front office was helpful in guiding me through the insurance details and giving me a clear print-out of prices that I could expect to pay for everything on follow-up visits. Beware, however, this office is not for the faint of heart. They use ultrasonic techniques to start, but then a serious amount of manual scraping. I personally don't mind, as I'd rather know that my teeth and gums are well-cleaned. But I'm sure this would bother some people. In general, I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a qualified dentist. -KatherineMacLean
2007-03-07 15:19:32 I have Dr. Samers as my dentist. He is very nice and professional. I think its good that they are so thorough and take the time to do a great job. I also have never felt like they were trying to make me pay for things I did not need. —MyaBrn

2008-04-30 16:48:42 I liked all the people here, but I have found that there are two types of dentists: Those who want to fix everything, and those who will wait on minor problems. I prefer the 'wait-and-see' approach, but Dr. Samer falls into the former category, so I don't think I'm going to stick with him. —JoePomidor
2008-04-30 16:59:40 Love Dr. Samer. I went to Dr. Samer after not having dental insurance for four years. I was so anxious about my visit and was extremely worried about my teeth. He immediately put me at ease and was very gentle and considerate of my nervousness. I've been going to him ever since and I don't want to switch to any one else. He's knowledgeable and professionals. I highly recommend him. —CurlyGirl26

He developed a comprehensive treatment plan that addressed my dental needs while taking the time to accommodate my concerns, desires and financial situation. His office staff is both professional and caring. I highly recommend this knowledgeable, compassionate, professional dentist to all. —MDavis
2008-09-14 14:26:37 Davis has many excellent dentists and Dr. Samer is one to the best. As a specialist in town, I have worked with Dr. Samer for over 7 years and appreciate his gentle and caring manner along with his comprehensive and sophisticated knowledge of modern dentistry. The dental work I have seen him perform in patients has always been excellent and the work he has performed on me personally has been awesome and much appreciated. —DavidJolkovsky
2009-03-03 19:44:26 Dr Samer does a great job! Very professional, did a great job on my cavity fillings. They are up-to-date on technology too, with digital xray equipment and an intraoral dental camera. —JTan
2013-03-26 18:45:40 This guy is GREAT! I saw Dr. Samer (as he is known) for the first time today. I had not gone to a dentist for 2 years because of horrible anxiety about pain and suffering after some pretty nasty experiences. I knew I was in for some ugly news today. Dr. Samer was beyond patient with my prattling, nervous chatter. He took all the time in the world to explain my options for a painless cleaning, and was not at all hesitant to offer me nitrous oxide, even for a simple cleaning. He did a very thorough workup using the most modern techniques and personally measured my vitals and administered the nitrous. His RDA did a great, painless cleaning job, and he then met with me to work out a treatment plan that would accomodate my busy schedule and international travel. He is an excellent communicator, and I am not the least bit worried about seeing him next week for an extraction (gulp) and 2 temporary crowns. Highly, highly recommended. —FreddieOakley
