Went once to him and that was enough. He is quick to point out all these extra services you need... got a second opinion and learned he was full of it.

My husband & I have been going to Dr. Skiffey since we moved to Wadsworth 15 years ago. We have never been disappointed. Honestly, one of the reasons that we initially chose to go here was the ease in becoming a patient. A couple of the other Wadsworth dentists we called on the list required us to have a pre-appointment session & then schedule another check-up to come back after that - what?? Most people don't have that kind of time.
*Just a note that for many years when we lived in other states I worked in dental labs so if anyone would be able to scrutinize their work & its quality it would be me.
We have never been "pressured" to do any additional dental work (that was not needed) - he only warned us of things to come (such as detecting older cracked fillings). In the past he has always done the teeth cleanings, too, but in the past few months has hired a dental hygenist. In the past 1-2 years they have also added some of the most updated & high-tech equipment out there - one thing specifially for making crowns right on site (which eliminates the need for temporary crowns) and an additional office visit.
The only thing they may need since it is a small office would be a bigger space, as they seem to continue to grow & bring in newer equipment.
Everyone in the office is very friendly and we are never made to feel uneasy by Dr. Skiffey or the staff. He enters the room with a hand-shake and does the same upon leaving - very professional. Personally, I have no issues when it comes to listening to Dr. Skiffey & the other employees talk when my teeth are being worked-on - I feel it shows that they can communicate as individuals and not just as employer/employee.
Happy we chose this office ~

Was new to the area, and was referred to me. When I lost a filling/broke part of my tooth, he was the only dentist I could find that would get to me withing a day. Once there, he "cleaned" me up, got me on the proper meds to get rid of infection & pain, and prepped me for root canal. Have had 2 in the past, this was by far the fastest, least painful one to date. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and willilng to answer all my questions!

My young daughter and I have been going to Dr Skiffey for at least two years and have not been impressed. When I finally leave I am so annoyed with Dr Skiffey that I want to change to someone else- in fact I am. I am so sick of the lectures of smoking when it is clear that he is an ex smoker by his chewed up fingernails. When he does stop lecturing, he is conversing with his crew about their own personal crap that I do not want to hear. Almost as if I am intruding in their conversations.

I'm not sure what planet some of the previous reviewers are from. I have had plenty of dental work in my 39 years and have moved around to dozens of places as a child "military". I can't begin to count how many different Dentists I've visited. I have rarely had any pain at all when Dr. Skiffey cleaned my teeth for the past 5 years (10 visits). He is one of the most kind, gentle, and knowledgable Dentists I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. I've referred other folks to Dr Skiffey and they have thanked me and reflected my afore mentioned sentiment.

I realize these other two reviews are old but this is the first site that pops up when I google Dr Skiffey's name for his phone number and these reviews are obviously talking about someone else. I, my wife and three kids have been going to him for almost six years now. I believe he is an excellent dentist and have referred him to several friends. He is not "rough", in fact, he is so precise and quick with fillings that I rarely need Novocaine. He also has seen us with "emergencies" because he obviously cares about his patients. I have and will continue to recommend him to others.

Robert Skiffey's office is another clean, friendly office, with a lot of parking space. But, the work that they do is not that spectacular. When i had a cleaning here before, I left with enflamed gums, and a very sore mouth. He is a very rough flosser, and it can get really painful. Other dentists and very caring and slow when it comes to this, because they know it can hurt if you do it too hard. But he didn't care. He seemed to think the harder the better. I wont be going here again.

We stopped going to Skiffey after two visits. We felt his bedside manner was awful and he was very rough during our check-ups and cleanings. When we decided to switch dentists, Mr. Skiffey asked why and I told him honestly, your cleanings and check-ups are too painful to which he replied, if you find a dentist who isnt rough, then hes not doing a thorough job. So for our next check-up and cleaning we visited a different dentist who produced great results.... with no pain!
