Alluvial Dental Center
I feel I would be remiss if I did not offer a positive perspective on the standard of care I receive from Alluvial Dental. Having retired from the medical imaging field, I have had excellent exposure to every facet of medical care. I had been searching for a new dentist since I moved to the Central Valley and it's a daunting task to identify above par primary providers for a state-of-the art medical services. My criterion is not easy to fulfill, since education, with certification in related modalities, basic dental, periodontal treatment, surgery and at some future date implants, attention to detail is key...to me!On my initial visit, I submitted my complete and detailed medical history along with prior and existing "Rx" prescriptions, and most recent digital (X-Ray), to enable the doctor to make a thorough and detailed diagnosis and treatment plan, which began on my first visit. The diagnosis was on target and the overall treatment has progressed exceedingly well and truly meets my critical criterion of standard-of-care...I feel totally comfortable, at ease and confident that I made a positive decision by selecting Dr. Park, as well as his Dental Hygienist, which will perform ongoing maintenance which is a complement to the quality of service scope... I would stronglyrecommend Alluvial Dental...they have the most up to date technology and standard of practices!Daniel Lawrence B.Enjoy your day...

A Beautiful Smile
Office staff always friendly & willing to work out payment plans for which I am very grateful. I was not as happy with the 2 Dentists who provided dental work. My cap & filling were left with a huge gap that I must floss after any meal because gap is way too large and food will just in gap, very gross. When asked to have fixed I was told I would have to pay for a whole new cap, I dont believe I should have to pay for poor service. Second, I switched silver fillings to white that are now very sensitive to hot/cold. While this work was being performed I opened my eyes to see the dentist mouthing something to the assistant he did not want me to hear. I found that very unproffessional & made me feel like something was wrong with me. Since staff was so nice I stayed with them for a couple years, but could not get over paying higher prices for work that was not done right.

I Tooth Dentistry
I had an emergency on a Friday pertaining to a loose crown and Dr. Mendoza was able to see me the same day. When most dental offices are closed on Friday I was thankful that a dental in North Fresno was opened and had room for an appointment. Passing Herndon all the time I remembered iTooth Dentistry's led sign that is visible on Herndon between Chestnut and Maple on the north side. Once inside I took noticed of a copy of a Fresno Bee article that is posted in the lobby, Article cites his excellent educational credentials and focus on customer service which is true. Office has posted copies of his UCLA and Berkeley degrees. In 5 minutes I was smiling again. The doctor was very professional and totally explained why the crown had come off and what he was doing to repair it. By the way totally new dental office and cordial staff. I'm glad to give this recommendation.

Bullard Dental Group
After searching several Dentist offices in the area I found this excellent dental office. I was having trouble with my wisdom teeth and as soon as I called I had an appointment the following day. I was very nervous about getting my teeth pulled but the Dentist Dr. Fay, was great. He actually quoted lines to my favorite movie the entire time he was working on my teeth to distract me from the extractions. It was in no time that that it was done and I was on my way home. All of the staff were great in helping me with anything I asked for. Even when I needed a refill on my prescription, they immediately called the pharmacy and took care of me as well. They also have Televisions in the rooms with great message chairs to help you relax while you are getting your work done. Before you look anywhere else check into this state of the art highly qualified dental office.

Bullard Dental Group
I recently moved to the Fresno area and was in need of a dentist immediately. So, after checking out the reviews on here, I decided to give Bullard Dental Group at shot. When I first met Dr. Fay DMD, he was very comforting and told me he would take care of the problem immediately. I needed a root canal and afraid of having work done on my teeth, so it helped that Dr. Fay was so reassuring.. I was hesitant because I have not always had the best of luck with dentists and I don't trust very many of them. However he was very thorough, detailed, quick and clean during entire procedure. I t was the BEST root canal I've ever had....(should I say that? ) Weird, I do not typically refer to a root canal as a great experience if that says anything. I would definitely recommend Bullard Dental Group, Dr. Fay has since kept my smile beautiful. Thank you!!!

A 24 HOUR Dental Care In Fresno
Wonderful service! Extremely helpful and FAST. I called them late in the evening right after my back molar shattered, and was grateful when they told me to come in, even though their regular hours had just ended for the night. I rushed to their office, and within about 30 minutes, was out the door again with a temporary crown, and an appointment set for a few days later to get the permanent one. Dr. Shamlian did an excellent job, and the whole staff was kind. I'm sure they were eager to get home to their families at the end of a long work day, but they didn't show it--they projected concern, sympathy, and professionalism. It was dark when I left, and a receptionist even walked my to my car to make sure I was safe. I'm new to Fresno, and hadn't anticipated needing a dentist this soon, but am grateful to have found this office.

Dental Spa On First
This was the first time we visited Dental Spa On First. I took my two children to the Dental Spa On First and I was so impressed with the service I just had to leave a review! Everyone was polite and my daughter has autism and they were patient with her. My kids received information on how to keep there teeth healthy and also got a toy from the treasure chest and toothbrushes. I did not make a appointment for myself but I started to talk about my tooth that was bothering me and the dentist told me to have a seat and began checking my tooth and even gave me a light cleaning "FOR FREE" I have never been to a place where they make you feel like they sincerely care about you like the staff at Dental Spa. I left out of there feeling like a better person!

A 24 HOUR Dental Care In Fresno
This is a wonderful office with very skilled dentists and compassionate staff that come in on their weekends and holidays because they care about people. Dr. Shamlian was very clear about 24-hour emergency dental service by appointment when I called. I needed work done on 2 front teeth before an important interview. So he set up an appointment for me even though it was already the weekend and took care of my problem so quickly. He was very straight forward about what the cost would be because of the emergency visit,etc. It was absolutely worth it to fix my smile! I see the reviews below and I have to remind some people...this is not an emergency room or a free clinic, it is a beautiful private dental office and a great one at that!

Bullard Dental Group
I wanted the best of the best when it came to my teeth. So, when I found out that I had to have a root canal, I researched on here and found that Bullard Dental Group looked like the best fit for me and I was right. I did not feel any pain during or after, none at all, I was amazed! Dr. Fay is the nicest Dentist, and all of the girls in the office are super lovely and they make going to the Dentist enjoyable and affordable. Dr. Fay definitely knows what he's doing! Everybody is so caring. I have been going to them for years now and I recommend them to everyone because you can't find a better Dentist office anywhere! Thank you for helping me achieve a healthy smile! I am truly grateful for your services!

Bullard Dental Group
My boyfriend and I have been coming to Bullard Dental for the past two years and we love it. The staff is always very friendly and considerate of your time when getting you in and out for appointments. They helped me get my cavities filled on the same day. =Knowing it would be difficult to come back another day being that I travel so much for my job. Dr. Fay is very kind and listens well. Also, for a dentist's office they are pretty tech savvy, and make the overall experience a more informed and pleasant one. I usually hate going to the dentist, but at Bullard Dental, they make the whole experience less nerve wracking and less painful.
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
