Wonderful staff and great office. I was so nervous about extracting my wisdom tooth out. They got me on the schedule with two days notice, took all of my questions in my consultation, and then made the procedure quick and painless. Everyone was so kind to me and made me feel comfortable. So thankful to Dr. Rivero, he is amazing.
Pleasantly surprised! Taken at appointed time. Assistant very friendly, informative. Did a good job re-cementing my temporary. Took me out to the front desk, Made certain I had up-coming appointment. Bid a good day. Nice to be treated as an individual! Thanks.
Very gentle dentists and technicians. They took great care with myself and my wife.
Everyone was super sweet and kind. The tech was very nice and informative. The dentist was super patient and helped me through my procedure with all my anxiety. I will definitely go back.
I highly recommend this dentist office. This is “old school” dentistry, but also uses high speed technology. They believe in beginning with conservative treatments and won’t recommend something you don’t need. They’re very honest and trustworthy, which is hard to find anymore among dentists.
So amazing. I’m such a wimp when I comes to dental work but not anymore. So helpful and non judgmental.
The staff and especially the dentist are of absolute professionalism, with a great sense of humor. i reccomend them to anyone.
Been going here since 1998. These ppl are the best. Would recommend them to anyone if your looking for a dentist office who cares.
Dr. Riedler is super nice with a gentle touch. He could have tried to up-sell me on cosmetic dental services, like other dentists I’ve been to, but he didn’t because he has integrity. Staff is great too, and he plays the classic hits from the 60s and 70s–so that’s fun.
