We moved to Indy in 2004 and I needed a lot of crowns for cracked teeth and deteriorated fillings. I was caring for my infant grandchild five days a week and needed weekend or evening appointments. Not knowing anyone here I saw a dentist nearby. He quoted me a price of over $10,000 for the work and said he did not make Saturday appointments. I started going through the Yellow Pages calling dentists anywhere nearby. When I called Dr. Gradeless's office, his office manager said he did not have weekend office hours but took the time to ask me why I had to come in only then. She said she would be glad to see if she could find someone for. She called back the same day and said Dr. Gradeless would like to evaluate me and perhaps work out a schedule to do the work. Not only did Dr. Gradeless come in every other Saturday for 10-12 appointments but he charged $1,000 less than the first dentist was going to! I had given him the papers that stated the first estimate and he could have charged me the same price as I was clueless as to what such things cost. It turned out that the office manager who was so helpful is Dr. Gradeless's wife, Kathy. Her mother cared for her children when they were little so she and her husband had an appreciation for the constraints involved. My husband and I have used Dr. Gradeless for all our dental care since our first meeting. His staff is warm and caring, quick to make appointment changes and provide excellent dental care at a reasonable cost. Dr. and Mrs Gradeless are truly good people and we are fortunate to have found them.
