Dr. Alvarez and his staff take the time to make sure your needs are met, you are comfortable, and receiving the best care possible. They pay close attention to see if you are having any pain or discomfort and treats youfor it. Temporary implants were placed and fractured teeth were removed. Dr. Alvarez is incredibly skilled and I am truly satisfied with his work. I will no doubt return and I definitely recommend his practice.

Dr. Alvarez now uses a sophisticated, technology-assisted procedure for administering anesthesia that is virtually painless In addition, numbness from the anesthesia disappears a few minutes after the treatment (in may case, replacementof two fillings) has been completed. Dr. Alvarez continues to operate at the forefront of developments in dental care. As always, he and his staff were unquestionably professional, friendly, and caring. As a patient I always feel they are totally committed to my care and comfort.

I've been going to Dr Alvarez for about eight years. He's a kind, calm, and thoughtful person who happens to be also a fantastic dentist. He has the most up-to-date computerized equipment, including a 3-D mill that manufactures crowns and bridgesright there in his office. Saves time and fitting woes. I have terrible teeth due to genes and childhood negligence. I'm so grateful to have found him.

I've been a patient so long it is like family when I walk in. They only schedule one patient at a time so there's never a wait and I always have their full attention. Dr. Alvarez gives the best cleanings, Iactually don't mind going to the dentist. I used to be a chicken and need gas or a topical for cleanings, now I don't need anything. I have total confidence in him.

Edward is the best dentist I've ever been treated by. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and answered every question I have about the process. You can tell he has a passion for his work and has your best interests in mind. Hehas also surrounded himself with a staff that is professional, attentive and kind. Every part of the process is pleasant and comfortable, even when they're drilling at your teeth. I can't recommend enough.

I have been a patient of Dr. Alvarez's for 14 years. I have had several dentists prior to Dr. Alvarez and none of them come close to his attention to detail, compassion, and empathy to you as a patient. I willwrite a longer review at a later date, but if you are tired of dealing with dentists that deal with you as if you are bringing in your car to be fixed, Dr. Alvarez will be a breath of fresh air.

I have been struggling with new crowns/bridge I had done elsewhere. I went to Dr.Alvarez at a friend's recommendation. He did an amazing job on an upper anterior reconstruction. I am picky about my dentist since I was in the industryfor many years, and I have to say....he is TERRIFIC and my smile is BEAUTIFUL!! He is a perfectionist (which I appreciate) with color and shape of the bridge/veneers. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Alvarez without hesitation.

My visit was top notch and as comfortable as can be expected for the type of procedures performed. Considering the amount of dentists that I have been to in the past, I would say that Dr. A provides services that arewell above average. However, if you need any crowns for your more visible teeth, discuss your options with him. The crown moulding machine is not a good option for asthetic reasons.

This was a routine visit for a cleaning, X-rays, and oral exam. As usual, Dr. Alvarez performed the cleaning and exam personally. And, as usual, he was thorough, gentle, friendly, and genuinely concerned about the health of my mouth and mygeneral well-being. I am convinced that this exam was, again, only routine, and not some elaborate procedure, because of Dr. Alvarez's consistent attentiveness and skill in caring for my mouth. No need for me to shop around; I will stick with Dr. Alvarez.

Dr. Alvarez is the best dentist I have ever visited. I have had serious issues with my teeth since I was a child and no-one was able to restore my smile before. I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for over8 years now and my teeth and smile look amazing. It changed my life. I am able to smile all the way now ;-) Thank to Dr. Alvarez.
