Patient Reviews

Another successful visit with Dr. Ortega. If you are not satisfied with your current dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Ortega. The amenities offered in his office are outstanding. And, for the first time, I sat in a dentist chair, that was extremely comfortable. Along with the reclining chair, you also have a television attached to the ceiling, allowing you to watch your favorite program, and slip into a relaxed state of being. Dr. Ortega is dedicated to his profession, and has an excellent staff that welcomes you, the moment you step through his front door.

What a fabulous dental practice! Kind, helpful staff who are genuinely concerned about your well-being. No high-pressure sales for stuff you don't want or need. They use email and texts (if you like) to remind you of appointments. If you're a fraidy-cat, they take their time and make sure you're comfortable before they continue. Other dental offices made me feel like they just wanted my money. This place feels more like family. I'm so happy I finally found a dental office I can trust.

Dr. Ortega is great. The office is conveniently located close to my house, they offer validated parking in their structure as well. The office is clean and well-appointed. The staff is friendly and cheerful. Dr. Ortega uses the latest in equipment. He also keeps up on the latest techniques and training. My x-rays, teeth cleaning, and filling all went smoothly. I will be seeing him again soon for another filling.
