Dr. Matthew Anthony Hilmi
I was referred to Dr. Hilmi from my dentist for the removal and other work to be done. I went in for the consult and was greeted by hid very friendly staff, who assured me I had come to the right place.I met with the Dr. And told him I was extremely nervous, he said trust me you will feel no pain. I had an apt. Later that week but the pain was to much so I called and they went out of there way to fit me in. I had NO pain as he promised. I went for checkups since when he advised me that if I was in pain that he would be there for me over the weekend to contact if needed....wow how often do you hear that!Anyhow, you can rest easy knowing if you choose to see Dr. Hilmi you will be greeted with smiles and nothing but professionalism. ����

The above posting could not be more incorrect. I switched to Pine Street Dental after 20 years with another dentist. Dr. Yuen is competent and compassionate. Two cavities filled, zero pain, zero drama. My kids like him too.
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
