The dental care was good, Dr Bala does a fine job and is very clear with explaining things. My problem was moslty with the dental hygenist. She came in and did my cleaning in less than 5 minutes. She did not floss my teeth, which Dr Bala said would be done, and she was not as thorough as past hygenists I have had there. She also was quite messy and got a lot of cleaning materials all over my face. Her bedside manner appeared indifferent, she didn't even introduce herself or tell me what she was doing. Pretty disappointed with my cleaning this time around.

Waited 1/2 hour before seeing Dental Assistant for X-rays although it took 5 minutes to fill out iPad information. Everything a little slow as far as waiting for cleaning and had 2 Dental Hygienists that cleaned my teeth. Dr Oates took the time to explain the condition of my teeth after viewing the x-rays and any recommendations for future.

The whole staff is just awesome! I love Dr Oats. After having numerous bad experiences in the past, I couldn't be happier to find such a gentle and caring dentist. My husband sees another dentist in the same office and only has the best things to say about everyone who works there. I highly recommend Hermosa Smiles especially if your a bit shy and nervous about dentistry

Treatment options can be pricy, but I like the way I am given various options to meet my budget. I also like the way no one pushes me into a particular option. I feel like I'm getting a very high quality level of care. I'm very impressed with how the staff works diligently to schedule appointments so they are most convenient for me and how quickly they squeeze me in when I have an urgent matter.

Clean and comfortable facility. Very segmented process, x-ray, dentist, polisher, hygienist...all you want is a check up and clean (up sales at every step). I don't have time for a 2 hours process, get the job done. Do the paperwork at the end, not in between every segment.

Robert is great! I needed a deep cleaning and was not sure what to expect. I was nervous going into the procedure on both days (mostly because I really do not like needles). Robert was calm, professional, and took great care of me the entire time. Even though I had a different hygienist scheduled for the second cleaning, I asked if I could stick with him, and he changed my appointment and made sure to accommodate me in his schedule. It was really appreciated. I am extremely satisfied with my experience and hope to be able to see him again for any future treatments.

I didn't trust that the suggested dental plan was truly what I need. It felt like it was an exsessive amount of procedures and quite expensive. We chose this office because they accept insurance. The procedures recommended were partially covered but still very pricey. It felt like it was a way for the office/doctors to make more money versus dental needs.

I was in twice yesterday. The first time was great, but they decided to do a deeper cleaning and have me come back at 2:30. However, I did not get in until 3:15 because the hygienist was running behind. Both Dr. Bhalla and the hygienist (Cheryl) aregreat, but sitting around for 45 minutes was a bit of an annoyance. Not a big deal, would just have liked better, more accurate scheduling.

They only dropped the ball a little with regard to the cost of the onlay. The dentist said the next person would explain it to me, but they never did. I got the cost from one of the sheets the receptionist gave me which showed the cost for the future procedure.

I only discovered the Hermosa Smiles dental office as a new patient about a year ago, but Dr. Bhalla and Mina are both so amazing. I always feel confident I am in expert hands with them as I navigate my long standing dental issues (gum recession, bone loss from grinding, cross bite/open bite, the list goes on) and their communication skills as they discuss my care and options are second to none. I'm so grateful to have them as my team and pray they never leave the practice!

Consistently takes way to long to get seated and see the dentist. For example, my standard cleaning visit, from start to finish, took almost 2 hours. 2 hours! For a cleaning! About an hour and 15 minutes of that was a series of waiting around. This is getting to be unacceptable. Need to be more cognizant of how long something is going to take and make appointments last longer, so we're not all sitting around waiting on the dentist to see 4 people at the same time.

Please do not overbook. Treat your customers the way you want to be treated. Use the first in first out rule to respect the time of others. Disclose the wait time days or early enough prior to the appointment to give options for a reschedule and prior to driving out to the office. Do not allow interruptions while the customer is being treated.

Too much talking, not enough time actually working on teeth. Too busy, appointments are too hard to schedule, and staff was rough and handled my gums and teeth with force that caused pain. The office felt like a factory. Not special, not private, not comfortable.

My only complaint is that things tend to run late, and my appointments have taken longer than anticipated (yesterday I thought I had an hour exam and cleaning appt. but was in for 2.5 hrs I think all in). That said, I now know to just bring work with me and to ask about the length of each procedure or appointment. And CHERYL! oh my goodness, SO SO wonderful. I was so surprised that I went home and wrote a FB review immediately. Never in my life did I think I would feel that positively about a hygienist or a cleaning experience. I went home and also texted many of my South Bay friends to say if they needed a new dentist I was completely impressed with Hermosa Smiles and grateful that my insurance company simply assigned me to you. I hope this trajectory continues. .

This was my first visit to the office. I only have one complaint. I had to wait 50 minutes before the dentist saw me. My appointment was scheduled for 12:30 and I was finally taken into the back around 1:20. As a first time customer, this was very disappointing. Everything else was wonderful! The staff were great, the office was clean, excellent treatment, etc. However, I value my time and this was a huge drawback. I had to take time off my corporate job to take this appointment and the extra hour of waiting was very frustrating.

This was my first visit. I my appointment was at 4:00PM and I arrived on time. I was called at about 4:15 to begin the visit. Full xrays, etc., as would be expected for a new patient was conducted. The Dr. conducted an oral exam and then that is when I started to get a bit frustrated. It was about 4:55PM. I sat in the chair and waited and then waited some more time until my insurance was contacted. I had spent time and effort to complete all of the insurance and other information in advance so that my insurance would be contacted prior to my first appointment. It was clear that my insurance was not contacted prior to my appointment. Why bother then, to have the new patient full out the information online? I received no cleaning, set a couple of follow up appointments and was on my way about 5:35PM. Not a good start.
