I was in bad shape when I met JC but he was amazing, kind, and a constant professional. I have been back many times since my first visit and he had always taken great care with me, especially because of myfear of dentistry in general. I want everyone to know that this place is amazing and the entire staff wonderful.

Didn’t see dr Cabrera. A different dentist did my exam which is fine but you’d think that would be represented in the appointment. I also waited nearly an hour in the waiting room and was given a strange excuse about myinsurance taking a while to identify. Seems like they see a lot of clients but not sure they’re equipped to take them all in a timely manner. The hygienist was nice but kinda rough.

I saw him for the removal of all 4 wisdom teeth. After administering laughing gas and numbing the sites, he left to deal with another patient and didn't return for 30 plus minutes- enough time that he had to readministered thenumbing agents since the effects we're diminishing, which was frustrating when you're numb and loopy from all the meds.

This is the second time I've had to come to Center City Emergency Dentist, and this is the second time that I've had an amazing experience. Dr. Cabrera was absolutely professional, quick, thorough, and made my experience a wonderful one (again,this is a dentist so using words like amazing and wonderful don't come easy! lol). But I had to have an emergency tooth extraction. He explained exactly what was taking place, what my options were, what to expect during the procedure, and more so, how it will feel and what I would feel afterwards. The whole process took about 25 minutes and he laid out everything that was going on during the process. Again, I couldn't have had a better experience!

Dr. Cabera was really knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner. He explained how my visit would be and how he would remove the tissue that would be send for a biopsy. The procedure was virtually pain free and he checkedthroughout the procedure to make sure that my pain was managed. After the procedure was complete, he gave me clear instructions on what foods to avoid and how to managed the pain from the stitches. And how long it would take for him to give me the results of the biopsy. I really appreciated his professionalism and would definitely recommend him.

Dr Cabrera and his assistant Elise were so accommodating. They were confident in their work and they knew what they were doing. They acknowledged my other conditions and say how they all coincide. He is very knowledgeable and polite. Elise isvery polite as well and personable. They would warn before they do something major and so that you're not off guard and they made sure I was as pain free as I could possibly be even though my teeth are very sensitive. Best doctor/dentist/dentist assistants I've had. I always recommend.

I can't say enough about this office. Was in serious pain after a root canal on a holiday weekend. Got an appointment Saturday morning 8am. Got right in. They were very friendly and courteous. Asked if I had breakfast, offered meEnsure or a Boost since I didn't eat. 1,2,3 tooth out. Pain over! Love this office. Definitely switching. Don't care that it's downtown. Will travel for that kind of service.

The doctor was so patient and kind, he explained everything to me before anything started. I have really bad anxiety and this was my first time getting anything done. I was given a pill called the twilight zone and soon afterI was relaxed, they numbed me and before I knew it my wisdom tooth was out! It was al so quick. While waiting they let you watch music videos on the tv and dim the lights.... overall best experience!

Dr Cabrera was amazing! I had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted while awake and he was very careful and attentive. He constantly made sure I didn't feel even the slightest pain. One of my tooth was a stubborn one,but he did everything so smoothly and stitched it up well. A week later I came back because I was afraid I wasn't healing well, and he was incredibly helpful and compassionate, assuring me everything was going fine and reminded me to take my meds. Highly recommend!

Love Dr. Cabrera. He is kind, caring and smart. My 21 year old daughter saw him after an accidental fall that knocked out one of front teeth and shifted some other teeth. He was totally wonderful with her and patiently workedon her overtime to get her smile and teeth back to her old self. I was so pleased, I am now seeing him for a dental implant and periodontal work.

At first he seemed really nice and explained to me what would happen during the procedure, extractions of my left wisdom teeth, but when we began it was difficult for me to breathe because one of the nostrils became numb dueto the numbing aid, so I was choking since I was breathing out of my mouth. He gave me more thank a few mintues to try again then my jaw locked so my mouth could not open wide enough for him to see that is when he became frustrated with me and told me that I needed to cooperate as if I was doing all of this on purpose! He made me feel very uncomfortable and upset, my jaw was still locked and he was being rude. I asked to leave and the manager apologize for his behavior, which the doctor did not. He had to stitch me up and give me medicine. All that stress for nothing, my teeth are still in, now I'm in pain and annoyed that I had such a unpleasant dentist as my doctor. I do like this facility and the other dentists I had, but unfortunately I had an encounter with this man and I hope he treats his other patients with more respect!

Dr. Cabrera was excellent. He was very informative and made sure I was comfortable, and pain free, through the entire procedure. I was very nervous going into my appt., but he instantly made me feel comfortable by explaining everything thathe was going to do, and making sure I didn't have any pain through the entire procedure. He is, by far, the best dentist that I have ever been to, and such a nice guy. I also have to mention Abraham from my initial visit with this office, and George, who was with me before, during, and after the procedure and who is also excellent. He was very informative and went above and beyond for me to make sure I knew what was going on, and he knew how nervous I was and sat and talked with me and made sure I was comfortable with everything. He was very caring and was by my side the whole time! He is great at what he does and I was lucky to have him! Dr. Cabrera and George are excellent!

I am a health care professional . I have. been successful "treated " by Dr. Cabrera twice. Perhaps as, or more important, for those of us who are "dental phobes" I was not chastised or ridiculed under the guise of "PatientEducation." My personal experience is "It does not get better than that".

I had all four of my wisdom teeth (the bottom two were partially impacted) extracted along with a deep cleaning by Dr. Cabrera. He was gentle and the dental assistant was great and very comforting. I couldn't really take any timeoff from work for recovery, but Cabrera assured me that I most likely wouldn't have to (although every mouth is different). They estimated it would take a total of 2 hours – it only took about 30 minutes! Amazing. It has been less than 48 hours since my oral surgery, and my mouth seriously feels like that never happened. I highly recommend Center City Emergency Dentist as their staff is super friendly and they also take same-day appointments.
