I hope you called them before writing your review! Reviews can be damaging. I'm banking it was either an oversight (statements are mass generated by a computer) or it was an ongoing problem. My children have been patients there for nearly 7 years and have NEVER had a bad experience with the administrative staff. -nor the doctors, but this seems to be an admin. issue so clinical opinions are irrelevant here.

Amazing Dentist and amazing staff. Couldn't ask for a better office to have my 6 month cleaning appointments! Both Hygienists are equally wonderful. I always feel welcome and look forward to my check ups now!

Dr. Borrego seems to have a hard time focusing on the issues at hand as his thoughts are all over the place. 2 years later and I'm no closer to a diagnosis than day one. Seriously disappointed.

Dr. Borrego and his wife make a great team. They directed me to a wonderful specialist when it was needed. I trust this doctor with my health absolutely.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
