Verified Patient Reviews
I was very anxious about selecting a dentist from the network list provided by my insurance provider. From entering RenovaSmiles office through completion of the dental work that had to be done, I was completely satisfied. The atmosphere in this office is friendly and professional. Dr. Anderson and his staff made my experience painless. I highly recommend RenovaSmiles and Dr. Joshua Anderson for all your dental services.
Excellent!! Dr. Anderson AND his whole staff made me feel at home, very welcoming!
The reception staff and team at Renova Smiles are professional, welcoming and effective. I have used this practice for several years until now.. In my last appointment, Dr. Joshua Anderson attended to me. His treatment instinct seemed unlikely to work so I questioned the wisdom of this strategy as re-doing the root canal and crown would be expensive, traumatic to my gum and may still not even solve the problem. But Dr. Anderson was in no mood to discuss the issue with a lowly patient and moved on. I called the practice a few days later, armed with research and consulted Dr. Eliana Cueller-Cordova with whom I have always had excellent experiences and appreciate her bedside manner and skils. Dr. Cordova confirmed that re-doing was unlikely to work and agreed another approach would be more prudent. On returning to the practice for my treatment, Dr. Anderson seemed affronted that I should seek a second opinion and his manner was very brusque and condescending. He displayed no "shared decision making" skills - did not want to consult with me, as a patient, I felt rushed. I was disappointed that he did not explain and agree on a path forward. It felt like Dr. Anderson does not want patients to question his approach as it his God-given right to decide on their behalf - for he is the font on all knowledge both on earth and perhaps in heaven too. So in summary, excuse the lengthy personal statement, but I personally found Dr. Anderson's manner to be arrogant, patronizing, male chauvinistic and demonstrated a severe lack of the ability to participate in any shared decision making; If this is the type of dentist you are looking for, then he is perfect!
I found Dr Anderson on ZocDoc Friday night. Made the appointment for the very next day @10am. He saw me at 940am and had a root canal done and follow up visit scheduled by 1100 am. I absolutely LOVE this office. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. My kids will be coming HERE and my husband will be changing as of January 1
Tried getting money yet again for defective fillings
I've been here many times in the last two months, and have always had an enjoyable experience especially with his amazing and smiley staff - they're always so friendly. Initially, I was not used to a practice that worked a lot with assistants and was skeptical but they proved to be professional and kind. I do think, however, that while Dr Anderson is skilled, he may want to slow it down a bit. I sense this level of stress and need to rush that I see in most desk workers and not expected of a dentist. I'd expect my medical professionals to take it easy. Shouldn't be too difficult to fix. I'd still recommend them.
A very friendly and competent staff.
excellent all staff
Felt the service from the staff was very professional and very well explained. Once in the dentist chair the whole process was efficient.
Dr. Anderson is great and very fast without sacrificing quality or patient communication. But even better is his staff -- the hygienist is one of the nicest folks I've ever encountered in the medical profession, and the administrative folks were extremely thorough in explaining my benefits and options.
The place was okay, not the nicest or largest but it was fine. The staff was very nice and so was the doctor, but he tried getting me to do a full mouth debridement when all I needed was a cleaning.... Be sure to get a second or even third opinion before going through with anything.
I really enjoyed this dentist. Everyone in the office was friendly. No one tried to convince me to get things I didn't need. I just wish they integrated with ZocDoc more, had to fill out forms when my information is already on the site.
Great dentist! Lovely staff.
Always a great, prompt, thorough, and pleasant experience.
Great visit, beginning with Sonya's warm welcome, and the attentiveness to the patients needs by the entire staff. I am looking forward to my next visit.
Excellent service all around!
It was great! My paperwork was ready when I walked in. All the people that I was in contact with was very nice and personable while remaining professional. I went in as a new patient for a full mouth exam and the entire process from start to finish was fantastic. Everything was explained to me, and at the end I was provided a full recommended plan of my next appointment. I would highly recommend! Oh! And TVs everywhere! Definitely helped my dental anxiety ;)
Dr. Anderson was patient and kind. He and his staff are very friendly and professional. Juan took the time to thoroughly explain my treatment plan. I feel like I am in good hands. I found my new dentist !
I was given a RX for medication that I am allergic to and was not asked if I had any allergy .
Very helpful and did not make the fear of going to the dentist real. He was very comforting in outlining a plan for me to get my dental health all the way back to normal. I hadn't been to a dentist in 3 years and he was non-lecturing and supportive in plan
Everyone was very friendly and professional. It was a great visit.
Excellent Dentist! Extremely knowledgeable and capable, the staff are well-versed in the insurance specifics. Great care all around.
Excellent denistry. Had root canal done with minimal pain afterwards. The office works with you financially as well. Great dentist.
I just went in for a quick cleaning. They were both fast and did a great job. I'm used to having to sit around and wait for ten minutes to two hours past my appointment time when I have seen doctors and dentists elsewhere, so it was refreshing that I got seen exactly at my appointment time here.This place is great and has wonderful people working there! If you're a new patient and not familiar with the location, Googlemap it first though, because it's in a bit of an odd location.
Very professional and I felt so comfortable.
Very nice, really gentle. Didn't mind waiting since he is a no BS, awesome dentist.
Great team working with Dr. Anderson! A very good experience, especially considering that dental treatment invokes a bit of fear in many of us. Dr. Anderson is amazing, no fuss or drama, very pleasant chairside manner, just gets the work done in a highly efficient painless way. Highly recommend this doctor!
