Dr. Hine is the best dentist I have ever gone to. He was referred to me by someone I trust who has been seeing him for over 10 years.
Before that I had a dentist I had been going too way too long (he bought practice of dentist that I had been seeing who retired) that I no longer wanted to see but I did not just want to go to an unknown dentist.
If you don't really like or trust your current dentist make the effort and switch. It will be worth it.
From my personal experience and much dental work you will regret it bc they will eventually tell you about work you need and you will be stuck and conflicted bc you dont trust or like them and don't seem to care about whats best for me. Regrettable.
Thats why I spent months asking around for a great dentist and was referred by a trusted person.
Dr. Hine is kind, gentle, thoughtful and his style is to keep your teeth healthy and maintained. He does not recommend work if you dont need it. When he does work its smooth and easy.
If it is something that should be performed by a specialist he will refer you. I have done both. I trust him and his team is great.
I get 3 cleanings per yr so I really appreciate the value of the cleanings (came in with a retainer). I like and trust him so much, I referred my family members. We have only had positive experiences there.
Dr. Hine is a consummate medical professinal. After 20 yrs in SF I am telling you he is one of the best dentists in the City and so nice. Thank you Dr. Hine and team for being so great!
