I was referred to Dr. Derek Green by a family dentist who felt it was too difficult of a job to tackle. I needed root canal in one of my farthest back teeth and was in such agony tears rolled down my face. I'm 55 years old and have encountered several dentists; Dr. Derek Green is by far the best I've ever seen: He is very sincere, caring, personable and one of the most intelligent dentists (I truly wonder if he is a member of MENSA International?). My family dentist had diagnosed tooth #18, yet Dr. Derek Green did his own examination and discovered it was rather tooth #19. When Dr. Derek Green then ground off the existing gold crown from tooth #19 and initially saw no decay, he politely began to apologize to me. Then, Dr. Derek Green asked me if he could drill into the tooth #19 since some decay hides deep within. When he drilled into the tooth, massive decay was found. Dr. Derek Green has so much empathy that he sounded as relieved as I did! It is an honor for me to recommend him I am pain-free with no more tears, except tears of joy. Dr. Derek Green said to me it was one of the "tougher" jobs he had done. UPDATE FEB 9th 2024: I needed Dr. Derek Green to complete the crown as my family dentist in Wasilla, who I've never mentioned by name in any of my reviews, was unhappy about the mis-diagnosis and now wanted $1,600 to complete the tooth crown (saying I had gone "out-of-network." by going to Dr. Green). Dr. Green of Woodside Dental charged me $785.29 to finish the tooth crown. I'm extremely grateful to Dr. Green. I live in Wasilla and would never want to offend my family dentist, yet I must drive to Anchorage to see Dr. Green who does a spectacular job at very affordable rates. In my opinion. Dr. Green, who is extremely adept and learned in the practice of dentistry, could reserve himself for high-end wealthy patients, yet doesn't. Dr. Derek Green gives himself to all because he believes EVERYONE should have access to affordable dental care. Dr. Green is a very talented, learned dentist who invests in all the state-of-the-art equipment available. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr, Derek Green to anyone with dental needs. i do this recommendation as a CURRENT CLIENT of Dr. Derek Green.
Honestly this might be the most flattering review. I'm so glad we were able to get the job done and get you out of pain! See you soon. -Dr. Green
