She was fabulous! I was really worried because it had been a really long time since my last dentist visit period. She was not at all judgmental and very positive in the treatment that I needed. The support staff was greatand worked really well with my insurance and prioritizing the treatments I needed because I needed to get a lot done. Nothing hurt at all. As soon as I felt a little during the teeth cleaning she put more numbing gel on so I wouldn't feel it anymore. Loved my whole experience!

Dr. Alvarado and her staff were simply wonderful! They made me feel right at home. Dr. Alvarado was very thorough with her exam and actually uncovered some potentially critical issues effecting my dental and overall health. I had to find anew dentist because of change of insurance - I'm so happy to have found Dr. Alvarado and her team!
