Dr. Rivera is super personable and made me feel very comfortable. Unlike most dentists I've seen, he is a perfectionist and cares about the end result. Whther it's making multiple calls to the lab to ensure the crown comes out flawlessly or checking in with me after treatment to make sure I'm pain free. This is what sets Dr. Rivera apart from the rest of the practitioners in the business. I'd definitely recommend this guy to anyone!
