I have never hated the dentist until this experience. It was ridiculous. Please refer to my message I sent on the website for details on my experience. I am honestly disappointed I let myself pay at the end.

I have been several times and am in the process of an implant. Everyone is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. My Hygienist Robert is top notch, does a great job and is great at his profession. Dentist Bhalla was very pleasant, took her time explaining every detail, and made sure all my questions were answered. in the past, the dentist office has been my least favorite place to be and have dreaded the simplest visit. I have a new outlook thanks to Hermosa Smiles and have already recommended them to my family and friends.

Since joining Hermosa Smiles, going to the dentist is no longer an appointment I dread or fear. From the moment you walk in, every employee is gracious, timely and professional and I no longer "go to the dentist." At Hermosa Smiles, I receive dental CARE and I hope they continue their excellent service for my family and me for years to come.

Overall experience was good, but I have a few complaints: 1. After the deep cleaning diagnosis of my dentist, he wasn't very receptive to my questions, and seemed rushed. He left to get an estimate on the cost before I felt comfortable with what happened. 2. After he left, I waited around 40 minutes in the chair without any indication of what was going on. It seemed like an unreasonable amount of time to wait for a cost estimate. However after the long wait, I appreciated the fact that the dentist came back and acknowledged the fact that he wasn't really attentive to my previous questions.

My dental assistant was sick and pulled down her mask while my tooth was being drilled into and then processed to not change her gloves afterward and keep moving my dental chair during my treatment. I kept on choking on my spit because she wouldn't suction while drilling and throught my treatment. I've had many fillings before but I have never had a bubble under my filling which happened with my first filling here with my dentist. I told him I was extremely afraid of needles but I counted at least 5 different times I was injected with the novocaine needle in the same area. My mouth hurt more than any part of procedure because of this and he even put the suction on it and I almost cried because it was so painful.

I had the exact same treatment as usual (exam and cleaning) and the cost was significantly different this time. The billing manager didn't have an explanation. That makes it difficult, as a patient, to feel that the charges are honest and fair. It's very important to me to be able to trust that I am not being overbilled. It's hard to find an office that has both an excellent front office staff, adequate billing staff, and great dentist. You guys almost have it. Dr Bhalla is great, besides painful cleanings, but the billing people should be on the same page and make the patient feel confident that they are being fairly billed.

Went in for my routine teeth cleaning / checkup that occurs about every 6 months. Typically, I am in and out within an hour. However, this time I waited about 35 mins in the dentist chair before they started working on me. Came in at 12:00 pm, left out by about 1:40 pm.

Assistant and hygienist were fantastic. They explained everything before they began and were pleasant/friendly to work with. Dentist was great but forgot I needed fluoride (realized as I was walking out) and didn't talk to me about next steps for one of my teeth (receptionist mentioned it on the way out).

Everyone was very nice and easy to work with. I was impressed by the digital xrays - my previous dentist did not do that and it seems better because more detail is captured with less radiation exposure. The visit was great - my only concern was how long it took. My appointment was at 9:15 and I didn't leave until 11am. Hopefully this is just a one time thing. It was my first visit so I'm assuming that had something to do with it. I'll definitely be back for my next appointment and will refer others if they are looking for a new dentist.

Last min cancellation of appt was VERY frustrating...I turned down several job offers to keep my appt, then it was cancelled the night before. The office is extremely clean, hygienist was awesome, careful, thorough, friendly and competent. Dr. Oates is very professional and friendly. Have noticed the "up-sell" aspect, but that's part of business. Overall, very satisfied with Hermosa Smiles.

I had a 9am appointment for an x ray & cleaning --- wanted to make the early appointment so I can go right to the offie after. I wound up leaving the office at 11:20am. 2.2 hours for x rays & a cleaning. A lot of waiting time in the chair - I had to get up and ask twice when I was going to be cleaned.

This was first visit. So the moment I stepped foot my judging of how I was taken care of began. Each encounter from reception to X-ray to Dentist I was given a thorough explanation of what was going on. During each process I was asked if I was comfortable and if at any point I was not, I was to let them know to stop. So until I was fine with proceeding. I felt my care here was excellent and understood every step taken. I look forward to continued dental care from my new dental office. Thank you

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.

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.
