“Dr Lucas takes a lot of time assessing the patient. I have never had a dentist with the technology he has. Every crevice of the mouth is visible on the pictures. His report is very detailed as is the cost estimate. He left it up to me whether to proceed or not. No pressure. I have talked with friends who say his crown estimate is in the ballpark with what their dentists charge. Since he was referred to me by my periodontist, Dr Davis, I knew I would like him.”
