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.

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!

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. 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 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!
