I had a great experience at Dr Alvarez's office. His staff and hygienist were wonderful. I don't think anyone looks forward to a teeth cleaning, however the hygienist was very pleasant and the cleaning was painless. Dr Alvarez has a greatbedside manner.

Dr. Alvarez inspires the utmost confidence by his knowledge and professionalism putting my horrible dentist's fears away! He took the time to explain the procedure and was very patient with my nervousness. He and his entire staff speak spanishwhich was a plus for me.

Dr. Alvarez and his staff were amazing! They were very warm and friendly, and clearly are dedicated to providing quality care and customer (patient) service. My cleaning, done by a hygienist, was quick and painless and when the doctor came tosee me about an issue I have, he gave me options rather than try to push me toward a procedure I don't need. He said he would look into how much insurance will cover and get me an accurate quote, and we could move forward from there. In my experience, doctors/dentists aren't necessarily trying to accommodate to the patient's financial situation and working so much with their insurance --they just want you to get xyz procedure done-- so I really appreciate the doctor being considerate of that. Overall, I had a lovely experience in a clean and modern office, and I got a nice goodie bag with new oral hygiene tools at the end. Also, there's netflix in the patient room, so you can watch (or listen) while you're getting cleaned.

Very caring, and knowledgeable doctor. His practice is a little pricy as for my pocket but he impressed me because instead of removing a tooth, he removed a piece of gum which helped a lot.

As someone who has a fear of dentists, Dr. Alvarez (& his staff) was super accommodating and wonderful. I felt comfortable in the chair after five minutes. They walked me through everything and made it a seamless experience. Highly recommendhim to anyone (especially those who may not like going to the dentist)! P.S- they have netflix available while you're in the chair--how cool!

Very nice guy and does quick and painless work. The office is a bit of a mess at the moment but don't let that stop you from going. Almost never a wait if you arrive near time of appointment. I evencame late once and it was no problem at all. If you live in the area you should use Dr. Alvarez
