Cheng, Joe C C, DDS
New patient here, so I went in a little early today to fill out the paperwork I knew I needed to fill out. My appointment was at 130--I got there around 125. I don't know if they doublebooked or the guy was early, but another guy checked in while I was handing my paperwork to the person at the counter. They showed the guy to a chair then they showed me to the chair in the next workspace over.150, I am still waiting for the dentist. I hear the guy next door getting his teeth cleaned. I was expecting Dr. Cheng, but when I told the lady who was my dental helper I only had an hour for lunch and when was the dentist coming, she pointed to the dentist that was working on the guy next door and said that she would be cleaning my teeth. Well, they were very nice and obliging, Dr. Chan (Dr. May) immediately came over and started cleaning my teeth. (Thank you so much for that!) I thought that she was maybe done with the guy next door, but she went right back to him after she finished cleaning my teeth. Now I had the greatest dentist in the world, Dr. Saeki, in San Francisco, for almost nine years before she retired. I loved going to see her, partly because she was respectful of your time. She only booked one appointment per hour. Out of all the times I went to see her, I cannot remember one time that she kept me waiting. She was wonderful, and unfortunately, she set the bar high.Dr. May did a great job on my teeth, very knowledgeable and told me what I needed to do to keep my teeth healthy. She has a gentle and effective touch; I have a gag reflex and I didn't gag once while she was cleaning my teeth. Best of all, she finished cleaning my teeth by 230. But I wasn't too happy about being kept waiting, and I'm sure the guy next door was wondering, where did the dentist go???I won't be back because I need a dentist office that realizes that their customers' time is valuable.

San Gabriel Valley Family Dental Group
I went to San Gabriel Valley Family Dental Group in San Gabriel, Ca. Because it was the closest dentist to me that accepted my dental insurance. I had a fractured tooth that had become infected. The staff are attentive, helpful and very professional as well as very polite. Dr. Chen had to remove this tooth and the bridge it was part of. He was so caring and attentive to my well being. I have to say I have never had a less painful time at the dentist. He was careful and talked me through beginning to end. I recommend this dental center whole heartedly. Thank you San Gabriel Valley family Dental Group!

Lingli Wang Dental Corporation
I had my wisdom teeth extraction from this clinic. The waiting was quite long, I believe I waited for about 40 mins since Dr Wang was the only physician here. It took about 10 mins to do the X-Ray before the extraction, about another 10 mins to do the extraction (Depending on the growth of your wisdom teeth; mine was the easy type to remove). Dr. Wang was friendly, informative and professional. Prices were fair. Clinic location and parking was easy to find. I will recommend this place!

California Dentistry
The office is clean and professional. They have excellent doctors from general dentist to the specialists in the field. Dr. Ku, the general dentist, is caring and very experienced. Dr. Liao, the oral surgeon, is fast. You don't even have time to get nervous, the tooth is out already. I love the office.
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
