Staff was courteous and helpful. They worked me in for a dental emergency (broken molar) and patiently answered all my questions. Not the best of circumstance (emergency) especially given my general fear of the dentist but Dr. Fernandez was kind and eased my fears.

Staff was very helpful and answered all of my questions. Even the ones I forgot, and then asked again. Dr. Fernandez and her Dental Assistant Leslie, made my experience pain-free and was very thorough with not only my history, but mydental exam, and my anxiety of what I was facing. Would definitely recommend Dr. Fernandez to anyone who has had horrible dental experiences in the past! Made me feel very comfortable and confident when I left her office! Thank you!!!!!

I am a dental phobic living in a new state. It is difficult for me to find a dentist I can allow to work on me. I developed an infection so the search for a dentist was quicker than I thoughtit would be. The front desk staff a very nice and friendly. Dr. Fernandez's assistant is soft spoken and has a very gentle touch. As for Dr. Fernandez, she is also very nice, caring and very gentle. Although she could not completely help me, she recommended another specialist. I will return to Dr. Fernandez when the specialist finishes his part.

I met Dr. Fernandez and she is so wonderful! She is very thoughtful and attentive when listening to my dental problems. She has a very light touch and it was painless! This was the best dental experience I ever had andI look forward to having her as my dentist. Her staff are very friendly and very helpful in helping me to understand my dental insurance. They have interest free financing which made my experience even more wonderful and Dr. Fernandez has great office hours, even Saturdays which help me not lose time at work. I found my experience to be very pleasant and I will refer all my friends and family to Dr. Fernandez. The office is very clean and tidy, no funny smells like other offices have and the music is very calming. The staff called in my dental prescription which was a time saver and her hygienist is very professional and handsome.
