Hi--I hate going to the dentist but I've put it off long enough. Anyone know a good adult dentist in Central Phx or the West valley? I need someone super nice and very gentle--to bad I can't go to my girls' pediatric dentist whom I LOVE!

This may be too far for you but I can't recommend Dr. Richard Mason enough. He's in Scottsdale. Not only have I known him most of my life, he's honest and very conservative.

When my insurance changed, he was no longer a covered provider under my plan. I went to someone new who examined me and declared I needed over $500 in work. I freaked and called Dr. Mason whom I had just seen 6 months earlier. He told me to come in and he examined me for free and said no way did I need ANY of the work that other dentist said I did.

So, I found another dentist who I saw 6 mo later - first appointment with her, she didn't find any of the things the last doctor did but she said I had a cavity between my front two teeth!!!! Can you imagine a filling between your front two teeth????

I ran screaming from her office straight to Dr. Mason - again he examined me for free and said no way - don't let them touch my teeth.

I now pay out of pocket to go see Dr. Mason. In the long run, he saves me money because he has never done unnecessary procedures. I know if he recommends something, it's really necessary.

Plus, he's very gentle, kind and easy going. I can't say enough about him.

Dr. John Goodwin on Glendale and 7th avenue. I have been going to him for years and so has my whole family. Good luck!
