Patient reviews for Dr. Elena (Amparo) Heredia
Elena takes great care of her patients and spends the right time understanding any concern you might and brings best recommendations for you. I totally recommend her and her staff
Excellent, efficient, pain-free and compassionate service as always. keeps patient informed of treatment and treatment plan. listens to and responds to any patient patient concerns. the BEST. as is dr. marcelo. office staff makes one feel welcome. technicians and dental assistants are SUPERB.
I love Dr. Heredia! She is the best! The entire office is full of amazingly sweet and professional people! I love them all!
Awesome as usual!
professional Doctor and staff!
Amazing Doctor. I went in for a cleaning and Dr. Heredia noticed some puffiness around an old metal crown and suspected I was allergic to the metal. She recommended the crown to be replaced anyways since it was old and failing and it will probably help with the redness. Dr. Heredia proceeded with the procedure and unbelievably enough the puffiness had gone down after the removal of the metal crown. I am so floored by her diagnostic skills and not mention that I didn't feel a thing during the entire process!! She is the best dentist ever.
Lovely doctor and wonderful staff. Would highly recommend visiting her office!
Dr. Heredia and her team were nothing short of amazing. Super friendly, helpful, and made sure I was taken care of. Seeing as how I haven’t been to the dentist in like forever and was nervous, Dr. Heredia made every appointment a breeze and thoroughly walked me through the procedures needed to be done. Definitely recommend her for anyone who has the jitters when it comes to dentists!
Dr. Heredia and Helen are a dream team! They're fast, gentle, and do a perfect job every time. I've had multiple fillings and never had a complaint or even pain after. Unlike some other dentists, Dr. Heredia does it right every time.
Wonderful! Dr. Heredia did a gentle, thorough exam and gave me great suggestions for how to improve my dental care at home. Will definitely book again!
Great visit as always. Very thorough and painless. Have been coming to Dr. Heredia for years and will continue to do so! Highly recommend.
Very happy with the appointment. Waited a little bit but provider thanked me for my patience and apologized.
Welcoming office, wonderful staff, and highly professional competent service! I can't imagine a better dental practice exists in San Francisco!
She and her staff are great with kids and carefully explained everything during their routine exams. They look forward to their next visit!
Dr. Heredia and her staff are welcoming, knowledgable, and extremely kind. I'm excited for all my family members to visit and receive this high standard of care!
Super sweet and professional. Will be back!
Dr. Heredia was great! I have been looking for a dentist in SF and I'm glad I found her!
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!
Dr. Hana was great. She listened and was thorough with her exam and procedure.
I appreciate the care I have received from Dr. Heredia. I would highly recommend her. Sheila C.
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 my follow-ups to take care of my negligence were smooth and pain-free. The entire staff is super friendly and welcoming. Super-mega recommend.
Dr. Elena is THE BEST. Seriously.
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!
Very patient and kind.
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!
Love her. Fast, great results, offered great recommendations for the work I want to get done. Super nice. I look forward to my visits.
Dr. Heredia and her nurses were very kind and helpful. The office was clean and comfortable.
Amazing staff and great dentist. Have been coming here for a few years now and love it. Both locations in the Mission and the Marina are great.
She is an amazing dentist. Highly recommend!
Everyone there was super nice and helpful! Dr. Heredia explained everything in detail and I felt really comfortable for my first appointment with her! Will continue to go back and make her my Dentist!
Dr. Elena Heredia is the best dentist anyone could ever hope for. She is thorough, professional, caring, and gentle. I couldn't ask for a better experience. HIGHLY recommended!
Elena was very knowledgeable and efficient. Her staff was very friendly and also knowledgeable.
She is super professional, takes time to explain what's going on and extremely nice. I found my dentist
First time patient to Dr. Heredia. Visit was great - uses newer technology than most dentists, gave me clear feedback on things she noticed, and did a great cleaning. Will definitely be back!
I had a fantastic experience at Dr. Heredia's office this week. All the staff are super friendly and walked me through the whole process. This is the happiest I've ever been with a dental experience.
Excellent - professional - considerate - state of the art.
I really liked how dr Elena took care about me and explained everything in details. My fav dentist in the city.
Nice and informative. I will definitely go back.

This entire office is great! The care and personal attention I receive is top-notch! 10 STARS!
The staff is extremely friendly and competent. I had a fantastic experience!
Best experience. After more than twenty years of staying away from the dentist I now been able to go to three appointments Dr. Elena helps with my phobia of dentist. Her staff is also comforting,friendly and attentive. Slowly but surely I am finally allowing someone near my teething
We accomplished 3 fillings... two large. Made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Amparo Heredia is so good am recommending her Office services to all my friends asking if i know a "Good Dentist" , i tell them, i know the Best One .. Dr. Heredia and her team.
Very thorough but not 'rushed.' Explanations and short-/ long-term plan suggestions. Staff very caring and supportive.
Absolutely fantastic! It was my first experience ever walking away from a dentist appointment feeling great. Would highly recommend!
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 received a 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!
Fantastic work, so happy I chiee her to donmy crown. I chipped my tooth by accident during that time and put a veneer on and didna great job!
