My experience was great and I felt the treatment offered was set up so I could financially afford it. My only concern is the treatment I had caused a few abrasions on my lips and the corners of my mouth which left scabs and wound on the corner of my mouth. The dental assistants could have been a little more gentle during my treatment. But overall the office was great and I appreciate the work done.

Always an easy process, never been a huge fan of the dentist but they make it as painless as possible. I have the most sensitive teeth and they are always super gentle. I've already recommended them to family and friends.

This is obviously a very busy office. I thoroughly recommend the highly efficient and personal care given to each patient. I do come prepared to wait for my complete service. After my teeth cleaning, amazingly executed by Florentina, I did need to wait for 25 minutes before Dr. Bender was available. However, I was aware that I might have to wait and came prepared with my reading material. Dr. Bender is personable, professional, knowledgeable, and a GREAT dentist. I do not mind waiting for her exam. However, someone else might become impatient.

Excellent care. Only hesitation for a "5 Smile" was the dental assistant might have explained a little more about the Xray experience to me before the procedure. The machine and number of Xrays were new to me. I asked questions and she answered all with professionalism and friendliness. Just felt at first that I was on an assembly line.

Huge THANK YOU to Dr. Tsighe, her team and the financial advisor for going above and beyond superior help for me. My anxiety level was minimal due to excellent care given by Dr. Tsighe throughout the procedure. She was very professional and thorough in providing me with info regarding the necessary work needing to be done n the future and was very kind in that she worked me in to her very busy schedule for which I am extremely grateful. What an awesome member of a dynamic dentist office. Thanks again.

I absolutely enjoy each visit to the office, the staff is so accommodating and my dentist, Dr. T is especially mindful, polite and courtesy. They always help me to forget that I am visiting the "dentist" office by the way the professionally greet and treat each patient. My visit on yesterday was a bit off and that was very, I realize I was visiting the specialist regarding my treatment. He was very patient and answered all of questions and made sure I was clear as to the next step in my treatment. I, however, was not comfortable with his assistant who was quite different from the other assistants I have encountered at "Pleasant" Hill. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with Pleasant Hill Smiles because regardless of the condition of your teeth, the staff always makes you smile.

An excellent office providing top notch dental services. My dentist, Dr. Bender and my hygienist, Florentina, were both excellent. They took the time to sit with me and talk about my teeth and dental issues and to explain everything to me clearly. Equipment was high tech and the offices was clean and well run. The costs were sometimes a little on the high side, but that would be my only complaint, and I understand that a state of the art dental facility is not going to be the cheapest one in town. All in all, I give Pleasant Hill Smiles a top rating.

I am so happy to have come across this dental facility on the internet. The entire experience is a God-send and I am so amazed with the friendly, professional, welcoming, and attentive care the entire staff gave. My dentist was more than just a white coat looking into my mouth, she was an angel who sympathized with my plight yet professionally explained to me what "we" would need to do to make the future better for my mouth. I am so sorry it took me this long to find this office, maybe I would not have all the problems I am having with dental care, but on the other hand, the staff that works there probably would not have been on place years ago and they are just the right staff for this time and place for me. Thank you for employing such great care takers, I am so impressed I have already after my first visit began referring family and a friend to this office.

This was my first full visit. I was surprised how pleasant and efficient the experience was. From the outside I expected it to be a run of the mill place where they pushed patients through. It was nothing like that. I was very pleased with Nina the dental assistant who I understand usually works in Pinole. Dr Bender was also very pleasant and I look forward to continuing having my dental care with her and her staff

I have not personally gotten a greeting, from any office people when coming through the door the past 3 visits. Is and continues to be the weakest part of the practice. Five smiles if it were not for that! Dr. Bender s an excellent dentist. Florina and Wanda are the most accomplished dental hygienists I have ever had in my entire lifetime. Yesterday, Wanda spent one hour cleaning my teeth and I didn't have any pre-existing issues that necessitated this kind of effort. She and Florina are just that meticulous.

I have pretty bad dental anxiety due to procedures I've had done on my teeth in the past at different dental offices. This team were understanding of both my financial situation and how nervous I was seeing a dentist, especially since I need to get my wisdom teeth pulled out. Not once did I feel uncomfortable or uneasy. They tell you what they're going to do before they do it. They explain everything along the way. They kept asking if I was ok. I am very satisfied with the way my visit went. I highly recommend this office and team.

I'm an incredibly anxious person, and probably not everyone's first choice of patient. I literally started crying twice and almost threw up on the dental assistant before I even met the dentist. (Good news - did not end up vomiting! Yaaaay!) But the staff tried their hardest to make me comfortable and to be understanding, and nobody made me feel bad about myself. Everyone was very friendly, and I can honestly say it's the best experience I've ever had at a dental office. As soon as they realized I was really 'having a problem,' someone brought me water, they went and told the dentist. I really appreciated how awesome and understanding everyone was, and I'll definitely be coming back, which is the strongest endorsement I can give.
