Who is the new dr from Toms River?
The new dentist is gone already! Not surprising.
They do have sliding scale for dental services but beware that their prices are inflated. You also don't know the level of experience of the hygienist/dentist.

RT 70 in Lakewood is good as well. Was there too many times.
Retracting my positive review of Mavis on rt. 70. Was there recently for oil change and brakes and they came up with a whole laundry list of $2k worth of stuff that was "crucial or my front tires would literally fall of on the highway, he has seen that happen...". When I declined he tried to negotiate and offer a deal etc. (I brought the car to Lipas shortly after and they weren't concerned by any of Mavis concerns.) Was during Covid, place was empty and they may have been desperate for $$$. Ill update the post if my tires fall off.

+1 I think their knowledge/expertise is inferior. IMO the one in Brick has very knowledgeable workers.

The more knowledgeable, the more they can screw you over.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
