I usually like SoCal Smiles. I'm not he biggest fan of the new head Dentist. My child was in for a filling which I was told no shot would be involved since it was a small cavity. Then he gave her a shot without consulting me. He just did it! My daughter was in shock. It gave her anxiety for the rest of the time there, not to mention she said she would not trust them again. I think there are so many people afraid of dentists and I was trying to make sure this never happened with my kids. I told my daughter exactly what to expect and then that was ruined. She's now afraid to go back. Not to mention they did not have my consent to give her a shot, especially when I was told she wouldn't need one. I told the dentist after he did it (because he just did it with no warning) that he said she wouldn't need one. His response was, "oh, I did? Oh well, it's done." Not a happy mom here.

Very professional; and I was treated courteously throughout the visit. There was a caring attitude.

Although the dentist isn't as friendly as Dr. G. He is a likable, nice, guy. He seems to be skilled and trying, guess I just miss the comradely.

The dental hygenist was amazing, she explained what she was doing and how to best care for my teeth. I appreciated her advise on how to protect my gums and what toothpaste products to use for my teeth. She was personable and knowledgeable as well. The dentist was friendly and answered my questions sincerely.

Very responsive and caring. No waiting and treatment started at the scheduled time. Also, front office staff were very courteous and one can tell they are being as professional as possible.

Everyone was very friendly. Prices seemed a bit high, I will likely look into some other dentists to compare prices for future needs.

All of the procedures were done professionally, although not rapidly. Also, since the new dentist bought the practice, prices have risen considerably.

SoCal Smiles Dentistry replied:

Thank you for your review. If you wouldn't mind contacting me directly I would like to know what procedure you had done since the prices have either stayed the same or have actually been lowered,

Thank you
