Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Norena-Otero was incredibly pleasant to work with. She was understanding and gentle in her work. I went in with a deep cavity and she explained every detail about the work she needed to do thoroughly .She didn’t speak to me in any condescending tone. Which has happened to me with other dentists. Her hygienists were very accommodating. One even brought a pillow to help support my neck when I was lying straight back waiting for the Novocain to kick in. Ive always hated dental offices, but this office was very pleasant and inviting.
She is amazing !!!
Much more than a DMD, she caught important issues my PCP missed. The most thorough and, most of all, kind, medical professional.
She was very thorough and answered all questions.
