In my opinion Dr. Oswick and his dental office is a complete scam and I would not recommend Dr. Oswick to anyone.

I just signed up on yelp and was not surprised to see negative reviews for Dr. Oswick as I had a very similar negative experience in the past with this dentist.

I am hoping this review will help others avoid going through a similar, negative experience I had with this dentist. On May 24, 2011, I went in for my first (and last) dental visit with Dr. Anthony Oswick. I was told on the phone that for the first visit I would get an exam, general cleaning and x-rays and it would all be covered under my insurance and I would pay $0.

When I got to the visit, they immediately charged me a $42 copay. I explained to the assistant and Dr. Oswick at the desk that I should have a $0 copay under my insurance and they said, no, that I did have a copay. I later found out that they had charged me a fee for showing up late, even though they told me on the phone to come at that time, and they told me it was a copay, not a late fee.

Then the dentist, Dr. Oswick, was extremely rude, saw me for only 3 minutes (I checked my watch) stuck his fingers in my mouth and called that a full exam. And he did not give me x-rays or a general cleaning. Instead Dr.

Oswick tried to sell me a $200 scaling job (when I went to my current dentist I found out that I did not need a scaling job and I never had one done). When I asked for a general cleaning or even just x-rays, Dr. Oswick refused and said he would do that when I came back for the $200 scaling job. So I spent $42 and got a 3 minute consultation with no cleaning or x-rays and instead the alleged dentist just tried to sell me an expensive job.

And I called my insurance company who informed me everything should have been covered completely by insurance and I should have spent $0. I called the dentist a few minutes after I left because I realized I had been scammed and requested a refund, however, Dr. Oswick did not call me back and never returned my money. In my opinion Dr.

Oswick and his dental office is a complete scam and I would not recommend Dr. Oswick to anyone.

Look for medical/dental sites to lodge your complaints as well. Ratemds and the like.

Will not return to this place!

This was my first time at this dentist and I was NOT impressed. I didn t feel that welcome there, and before I even went back for my appt, I had to pay $200+ (and I have insurance!) The doctors were kind of cold and did not have good bedside manner.

They told me I had several things wrong, and then asked if I could fork over another $500 for a down payment. This was after my mouth was bleeding all over from a cleaning! They were essentially trying to get me to drop money there on the spot. Who walks into a dentist expecting to pay $700+?

When I said I wanted to take a little time and think about it (how I wanted to pay - apply for a credit card or hand over the $500) and I felt like they got snippy with me. They asked me what the issue was and explained the issue is serious. I was in pain, and about in tears as I left.

I will NOT be returning. The whole experience was miserable, and I better get reimbursed by my insurance company!

Yes, 100% scam. Be careful.

I had a similiar experience! Was in tears by the time I got to my car.

I've never been treated so rudely from someone who I was paying to provide a service. Wanted $500 up front for my next appointment as well. Made me pay $25 for just a consultation even though I have insurance which covers it. Ridiculous.

He did nothing but insult me the entire time and then criticize my "flossing". I will never go back.
