As always, my visit with Dr. Duraes was extremely pleasant. I was shown back to the exam room within 10 minutes and once I was shown back to the exam room, things went quickly. Her examinations are always very pleasant -she talks you through every procedure she's going to do, is very lively and bubbly, which is comforting, and is very very efficient. She also takes pictures of your teeth in order to explain what is going on in your mouth, in addition to X-rays. These pictures and X-rays are then posted on a large TV in front of you so the explanation is very good. 100% would recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist.

I briefly met Dr. Duraes for my initial consultation and she was very professional, knowledgeable and very pleasant. I wasn't able to get an appointment with her because she was fully booked until mid october. I then scheduled my appointmentwith Dr. Sharma for Dental Cleaning and filling. Dr. Sharma is beyond great! Her hands were like made of air. I didn't feel any slight discomfort. She took her time with my dental work and she was the one who did my extensive dental cleaning. Now, How many dental clinic would do that?! Most dental clinic, you would see the dentist briefly then, the dental hygienist takes over. I highly recommend their practice. A+++MAZING! I can smile again!
