The team at the RSM office are great. I have high anxiety about having dental work. Nicole numbed my mouth and I didn't feel anything after that. Everyone there is very knowledgeable and kind and Dr. Karafin does excellent work.

Always very friendly & helpful team. The dentists have changed quite a bit over time. Prices are not competitive however. I am still waiting for my $2200 refund for a prepayment I made. It has been 3 weeks since we discussed this & payment was promised to be mailed to me. Nothing yet.

Chris I am so sorry about this. I completely let it slip thru the cracks and will get it sent to you. If you do not receive it within 3 days please let me know ASAP so I can put a cancel on it and reissue another one.

I previously left a review and stated that the woman who is in charge of calling in prescriptions couldn't be bothered to call mine in due to the late hour. I WAS WRONG! SO TOTALLY WRONG! I spoke with Jackie today and she clarified the situation: she could not call in the prescription BECAUSE SHE NEEDED THE DOCTOR'S APPROVAL, and he was gone for the day. Please see my review below, my less than satisfactory review. I want to state categorically that So Cal Smiles is indeed excellent, has maintained its high standards since Dr. Ganatra left, and that Jackie and the other staff, including my hygienist Nicole, are FANTASTIC, WONDERFUL, FABULOUS -- the BEST. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM! And I would not go anywhere else! I feel terrible that I left a review that indicated that I was dissatisfied, because now that I know the facts, I know that the staff was just doing their jobs. So Cal Smiles is THE place to go if you want exceptional dentists and extraordinary care!

My dental hygienist was WONDERFUL. But I was a bit perturbed that the woman in charge of calling in my prescription to my pharmacy couldn't be bothered to call it in until the next day because it was ten minutes until closing. Because I was going out of town that evening, I was pressed for time and did not want a long wait at the pharmacy if I had to present the Rx on the spot. I was so upset that I just about vowed to change dentists because of this woman's laziness, even though I had been going to the prior dentist since the first day he had started in practice in RSM. I feel that this incident would not have happened if Dr. Ganatra was still there.
