Very nice and gets you in and out. Even the 1st time I went to her she didn't try to get me to fill a bunch of "cavities" like some new dentists will do to make more money. I recommend her to everyone!

I didn’t go to the dentist for... a while, so when I decided to get my life together, I booked an appointment at Dr. Heredia’s office (it’s just a few blocks from my apartment). I was instantly at ease, and myfollow-ups to take care of my negligence were smooth and pain-free. The entire staff is super friendly and welcoming. Super-mega recommend.

Dr. Heredia and her staff were great! Everyone was friendly, kind and gentle. She explained everything about my teeth as she cleaned and worked on them, and made sure there were no surprises. I've never been a fan of the dentist,but Dr. Heredia created a relaxing and welcoming environment. I'll definitely be back in 6 months for my next cleaning.

Dr. Heredia is one of my favorite health care professionals I've ever been to. I have terrible teeth, but she is a great problem solver. She's honest about what actually needs to be done and finds ways that work within insurance(whereas other dentists try to upsell you). Her office staff is super responsive and efficient. I couldn't recommend them more!

I went in because a wisdom tooth was hurting. Dr. Heredia was very prompt in meeting with me and worked hard to find an oral surgeon who could see me immediately and get all 4 wisdom teeth yanked. Very expedient and caring!

Great first time experience. I came for a routine cleaning/checkup and it was quick and very thorough. Dr. Heredia and staff were super friendly and welcoming. They took x-rays and photographs to build a complete picture of my mouth. I receiveda pretty standard cleaning (picked,flossed, polished, washed, and rinse) but they made sure to inform me on what they were doing/observed (which teeth need more flossing, how my gums looked, etc). Always appreciate good communication. Also got a little goody bag at the end--cute!

The usual gentle, painless, skilled dentistry with her terrific assistant, Marla. I was a dentist for 44 years so obviously know skill and dedication and the whole office represents that, including her front desk person, Christina. It's a pleasure to be a patient there.
