Professional statement

Dr. Santiago Uribe’s enthusiasm for dentistry started when he was a young boy undergoing Orthodontic treatment.

It wasn’t long before Santiago decided to pursue a career path in Dentistry. Dr. Santiago Uribe graduated from CES University in 1997.

This was my first time coming to Dr. Uribe. My visit was prompt, fast and easy! My appointment was an hour long, it didn't feel long or cut short. Dr. Uribe was friendly, helpful and super knowledgeable. He provided suggestions and recommendations to keep a healthy happy denture!

Great doctor. Thoroughly explained the dangers of periodontal disease and how bone cannot grow once damaged. I am at this point, unfortunately, due to incorrectly flossing my teeth for many years. Ironically, I brush my teeth after every meal,but I guess tartar had built up along the gum line. I could tell Dr. Uribe was irritated that I was not doing what he prescribed, which was flossing properly every night--again, I ironically do this already. His manner seemed a bit rush, but I can sympathize, as he had other patients to see to. He answered all of my questions and provided explanations, but his dental assistants were very helpful in differentiating between proper and improper flossing with demonstrations--I mean, how was I supposed to know what "hugging the tooth" meant when it came to flossing?

I won't be back to this office. From the moment I entered the door, the office felt run down. Then, when I was treated, I realized that it was only "semi-private." All patients are treated in one open room with onlysmall separations in between. Thus, you can see and hear other patients being treated while you're in the dentist chair. I did not like this experience at all--it made me uncomfortable.

Amazing dentist. By far the best I've had. Prior to finding Dr. Uribe, I had a number of difficult experiences with dentist offices in the Bay Area. Dr. Uribe and his practice are professional, helpful, kind and practical. They are extremelythorough and make recommendations tailored to your personal situation. The office staff is very helpful with billing and willing to work with patients on navigating insurance issues. Excellent all around. Every doctor's office should be this good!

Santiago was very communicative, straightforward and informative in treating me. He always let me know what he was doing, why, and how I could improve my dental health in a very friendly manner. It was the best dentist's visit I've ever had.

He's no-nonsense, does his job, and gets you on your way. My only complaint would be the lack of focus of his x-ray tech, who lost track of which mouth x-rays he completed and which were yet to be done.

Dr. Uribe was very prompt and excellent in his care. Besides the general dental check-up, I had a few fillings to be redone which he did a great job with. No pain or discomfort for me.
