First off, I acknowledge my opinion is colored by experience, although I'm certain my case is not unique. I'm one of those patients who carries trauma related to dental work forward, from childhood. I'm not exactly phobic of dentists but thesensory experience (sounds, smells, vibrations of dental tools, etc) brings me back to a time when I was operated on before I was numb. A time when I was too scared to push away and didn't know it was OK to speak up when something was wrong. This time around, both doctor and staff seemed knowledgeable and professional enough... but also somewhat cold and indifferent. I understand the medical field's desire to keep one's demeanor more "clinical" and less "casual". Even so, these clinicians neither voiced sensitivity to nor even appeared AWARE of my state of calm (or lack thereof) during the visit. When I cringed in pain or otherwise reacted to a poke or prod, the staff member did draw back. I was told they'd work around that area. It was never acknowledged by staff that I seemed visibly shaken nor that I was consumed within a dissociative fog, following the treatment. I would have preferred to be greeted warmly, given plenty of reassurance about what was going on, offered a detailed explanation of all the steps involved, and the experiences I was being subjected to... so I might have a reference point as to what's considered "normal". (e.g., "You're going to feel some solid flecks hitting the roof of your mouth. Don't worry. That's just [blank]." or "There may be a burning smell from the friction, but it won't damage your teeth." or "You'll feel pressure, but you've been numbed so there shouldn't be any pain. If it hurts [do this] to signal me and I'll readjust." Personally, I like a dental clinic where there's a lot of feedback and communication and where I'm treated person-first rather than condition-first. I realize it may be wise to seek specialist care from a clinic which specifically caters to patients who are phobic or have experienced trauma in the past. This has been a learning experience for me. I hope whoever reads this will benefit from the offer/request of a referral, for those who find any and all dental work nerve-wracking. I'd like to see this clinic either educate their staff on how to handle phobic/traumatized/anxious/autistic or otherwise atypical patients... or at least provide referrals to someone well-trained and/or well-experienced in servicing said clientele.

Immediately greeted as I entered. I had a 2 minute wait, maybe. I was made to feel comfortable, and asked if I wanted sedation. After my procedure was completed, all my questions were answered. I didn't feel like I was aproblem, I felt like I was important, and taken care of. My concerns are listened to, and answered professionally. I would recommend this office to anyone needing a dentist.

I went to see Dr. Edwards for a crown. The first visit they were unsuccessful getting a good impression of the tooth, so I was called back a week later to take another. A week or so after that my gumsaround the tooth started swelling and bleeding. I called the office to ask what I should do and was told that I was probably allergic to the cement on the temporary crown. I didn't need to come in but I could if I wanted. I chose not to go in since my next visit was a few days away. When I went in for the permanent crown and told them about the problem the assistant looked and removed a piece of chord that they had left around my tooth at the previous visit. Now I am just hoping there are no other complications from the permanent crown!

Dr Edwards staff always greets you with a warm welcome. You don't have much time to even pick up a magazine to read before you're called back. You are seen at the given appointment time. I will definitely be returning. Afterhaving multiple appointments here and well over a year, I think I've established a great Dentist! Thanks Dr Edwards. I would also like to say "Dolly" is a great Hygenist! Very Thorough in explaining what needs to take place at every 6mo. appt.

I had an appointment to have my crown glued back on and the office squeezed me in, then I lost the crown and instead of telling me they were booked Dr. Edwards took care of me, had me fit for anew crown and a rush on the product. Great service from a great professional. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Edwards, he takes the time to care for all his patients.

I haven't seen a dentist in 35 years-so I was really worried and upset before I went. Dr. Edwards seemed to give me confidence and I didn't feel so bad when he said he could help me-and he did. Tooth paingone! Everyone at the office very very nice and helpful. All tried to make me feel better and more confident. Yes I really liked Dr. Edwards and he seemed extremely professional yet he was warm and kind at the same time. I will definitely return for further treatments. Thanks! CLR

After my longtime dentist retired, one of my other health care providers recommended Dr Edwards. Going to a new dentist felt a little scary to me! Dr Edward's staff put me at-ease. The receptionist was warmly professional when scheduling overthe phone. I do not have dental insurance and the receptionist told me about The Sandia Plan, an annual membership which gives a nice discount on dental services. Doctor's assistant was friendly and added to the comfort and trust I was already feeling for the office. Doctor Edwards answered all my questions and suggested a sensible course of action. What a relief to experience a painless procedure in a relaxed atmosphere!
