Alexander B Krasne, DMD
This is my bright smiling review of Dr. Krasne and his office staff! From the moment I stepped into the clinic I felt at ease and was greeted by friendly professional staff including the owner of the clinic Dr. Hema who welcomed me to the clinic and scheduled me an appointment with Dr. Krasne. This dental group took exceptional care of me during the numerous dental visits I had in the clinic. Dr. Krasne and his team always explained every step in detail and answered all my questions I had along the way. I decided to pay for custom bleach trays and I was so very pleased with the results. Next I had my two crowns completed and my cracked tooth repaired. Which totaled 3 front teeth Dr. Krasne fixed to perfection. I'm so impressed by the results and how absolutely beautiful my teeth look. I was so pleased with the exceptional professionalism and customer service Dr. Krasne and his staff provided. I highly recommend Dr. Krasne and his entire staff to anyone who is looking for a top notch professional, caring, thorough, amazing dental office. If you want sparkling beautiful movie star teeth definitely choose Dr. Krasne! No matter where my work takes me I will always fly back to have this amazing dentist care for my smile! Thank you so much for all your hard work making my smile perfect!!!

Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry
Initially, Dr. Styrt's outstanding credentials and referrals from patients drew me to his office. Once my husband and I met him, we were quite impressed with his desire to not only straighten our children's teeth, but to correct their bites and jawlines as well. Dr Styrt was as focused on their beautiful smiles as he was on correcting their alignment to avoid any future problems. There's much more to orthodontia than just straightening teeth. In the past several years, we have seen our children through expanders, braces, retainers and a number of other appliances. Throughout this experience, Dr. Styrt and his terrific staff clearly communicated with our children and with us about their progress. Another important factor to consider is his respect of his patient's (and their parents) time. We have NEVER had to wait more than 5 minutes when we have arrived on time for our appointment. His staff has always been friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating when we have had a scheduling conflict - they definitely go the extra mile. I couldn't more highly recommend Dr Styrt for his technical skill, his communication with patients/parents and his choice of qualified, capable and caring staff to work alongside him.

Dr. Perlich and her team made one of the BEST DENTAL EXPERIENCES I've ever had! For starters, I hate going to the dentist- it can be expensive, scary, painful etc... but none of that was the case with my recent visit. Everybody was very friendly and warm (the girl who first checked me in (sorry, I forgot your name), Amy who got me started (dental hygienist??- took my xrays), and Dr. Perlich herslef. The facility is beautiful, the equipment high tech and everything is created to make it a nice experience (they even have coffee and tea etc. while you wait).Dr. Perlich herself was amazing- friendly, gentle and thorough, explaining everything as we went along (I'm the type who likes to know everything), and put me at ease about everything. She told me about new options I'd not heard of ('been to several other dentists) to make my fighting-middle-age-self's teeth stronger and prettier, plus, gave me options I could live with to improve my dental health (instead of things like "never eat candy or drink coffee again" type advice that I just wouldn't really follow... I HIGHLY recommend her and her staff- thanks to the Dr. Perlich team for making my visit a great one!

Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry
I was so impressed with the care and treatment that Dr. Styrt and his staff have given our son and daughter with their orthodontia (and children's dentistry) that I decided, at age 53, to finally get my teeth straighted as well. During the past two years, I've been extremely happy with all aspects of my treatment. Dr. Stryt and his staff have been very professional and supportive during this process. I've never had to wait for any of my appointments and his front-desk staff have been very helpful when I've had to make last minute changes. Technically, Dr. Stryt has performed a "minor miracle" in widening my crowded mouth, correcting my bite, straightening my teeth and even "sanding" the bottom ones down a bit to give them a more even-looking appearance. In conclusion, I highly recommend Dr. Styrt and his team to anyone considering orthodontic treatment.

Ellie's Gentle Dentist Dr
I saw Dr. Ellie last week as a new patient. I was so impressed with her and her office staff. All my life I have been afraid of the dentist and petrified to even receive dental help. I was assigned to Dr. Ellie's Gentle Dentistry through my Delta Dental HMO plan and saw that unlike the previous dentists who I had seen that didn't care or where not gentle at all she was the exact opposite. I did not feel like a HMO patient when I walked into her office. I felt welcomed and at home. The treatment plan was explained to me properly and the actual treatment was pain free to my suprise. The best part of the dental appointment was Dr. Ellie had movies for me to watch during my dental appointment. I recommned her to everyone. Thank you Dr. Ellie and Staff for taking my fear of dentist and dental appointments away =). Sarah H.

Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry
I absolutely LOVE Dr. Styrt and his staff. I had braces in high school and never wore my retainers. Ten years later, I found myself needing braces again. I did a lot of research on different orthodontists in the area and went to several consultations around San Diego. I am so glad I made the decision of going to Dr. Styrt for my second time around in braces. Dr. Styrt and his staff are always so welcoming and accommodating when it comes to scheduling appointments. If every I had questions throughout the process (trust me, I had a bunch), Dr. Styrt and his staff were always more than happy to answer them. After 9 months of treatment, I finally got my braces off today. I'm happy to have them off, but sad that I wont have the pleasure of seeing Dr. Styrt and his staff more often. They are truly the best!!!

Randolph F Alexander DDS MS APC
Dr. Alexander was the first ortho I consulted with and after my consultation, I decided to go with him and canceled my other consultation. I have been going to Dr. Alexander, at his Carmel Valley office, since October 2010 and am very pleased with my treatment. The office staff is professional and very nice. Dr. Alexander picks a treatment that is best for the client and that will result in the best smile, even if it may take longer or is a more complicated treatment. He is always really nice and knows all of his patients names when they walk through the door. Every time I go for an adjustment, he asks how everything is going and really cares about the patient and their treatment. I am very glad that I chose Dr. Alexander and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get braces!

Both of my daughters (ages 9 & 11) are under Dr. Alexander's care and we have had a great experience! He is up to date on the newest technology which has allowed for quick results for both of my daughters teeth/jaw allignment..transformations in process! His staff are friendly and we always get right in at our appointment time. The best part is Dr. Alexander always has a smile on his face and he is cheerful even when he is busy working away on their teeth. Service with a smile.to quote my daughter's experience "quick service and a kindle fire to play with...woohoo!"to quote my older daughter's experience "I enjoy my appointment each time I come. Dr. Alexander is a great orthodontist who makes you feel comfortable. Thanks for the great new smile."

Edithann J Graham, DMD, MS, Inc.
I had an implant placed by Dr. Graham. I waited for a couple of years even though I really needed it. It just seemed overwhelming. Plus, I read WAAAAYYYYY too much about it on the internet before I went in. Don't do that!Anyhow, it was about the simplest thing I've ever had done. She offered sedation but I didn't get it. She said I wouldn't really feel anything except the shots to numb my mouth, but I really didn't even feel the shots much either. I was surprised she had done it. This was nice -- she called me to check on me the day after the implant. I was a little surprised that I had no pain at all, but I was totally surprised that she called! I thought it must be the receptionist, but it was the doctor herself. That was pretty cool of her.

Both my girls see Dr. Alexander. We went to 5 different orthos and were most comfortable with the treatment he suggested. Almost all the others wanted to move my daughters upper teeth back with a headgear when the obvious choice after talking to Dr A was to move her bottom jaw forward. I can't explain it in proper terms, what they did, ;) but her profile and teeth look amazing. She gets compliments all the time! I cringe to think had we gone the other route what her profile would look like! My daughter who is also very picky chose Dr . A because she felt comfortable with him. That is worth 5 stars right there. We usually are in and out and the staff is always very nice. Leslie has always been very nice and helpful. We have friends that go there 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
