Swanson Erik DMD
Let me start by saying I would still have all my teeth if I discovered this dentist sooner. I am 79 years old and over the years have seen more than my share of dentists. After our dentist of forty years passed away, my wife and I saw other dentists. I will not mention their names. Let me just say things could have been better. I ended up with gum problems and my wife needed a lot of dental repair work. Our next door neighbor suggested Dr. Erik Swanson. He is a soft-spoken, pleasant, caring, first class professional. All work is done by him on the premises; root canals, crowns, implants, etc. His staff is the best; from the friendly welcoming front-desk ladies, Mary and Laurie, to the very meticulous and pleasant hygienists, and dental assistants.There is heavy emphasis placed on prevention through the use of hygienists. The hygienist who works on my wife and I is named Alicia and she is just wonderful. She has the light touch and I cannot believe how great my teeth look after she works on them. Almost hate to eat with them.The waiting room is very pleasant and relaxing, and there is a very impressive, beautiful grandfather clock there making mellow relaxing sounds. You almost forget you are at the dentist. I would definitely recommend this place.

Redd, Burton M.D.
Dr Redd was the finest and kindest compassionate doc I've ever had the pleasure of having care for my then 10 yr Old son with cerebral palsy .. from what I understand Dr read works all up and down the state of California because he did surgery on my son from Porterville in Downey California at a children's hospital and I just happened to be a brand new nurse at the time and he was gracious enough to see that my mother and I were exhausted allowed me to bring my son home after the first night ...I was exhausted !!! He knew that too so because of that ? And the two or so hour drive ?? He ,out of his own pocket. had his private pilot fly my son and I in the comfort of his private jet to Porterville so we could come home sooner... I thought it was the most compassionate thing that I've ever seen and I was a RN for thirty plus years in every aspect of nursing and never ran into a doctor anything like or even similar in anyway like Dr. Redd ... He's an amazing doctor hands down ... I would trust no other to my children OR EVEN GRANDCHILDREN and anyone who knows me?? Knows how SERIOUSLY protective I am over my grandchildren lol FIVE STARS DR REDD !! I would give you more if it were possible

Dr. Calvon C Voong, MD
Dr Voong is an a**hole. He doesn't give a sh*t about his patients. I sat in his office crying because of how bad my back was hurting. He came in the room told me to continue taking the medication I'm allergic to (seriously he did) and come back in February. When I asked him for a different kind of pain medicine....tramadol is what he gave me last time. Anyways when I asked him to please give me anything besides tramadol he said, "nope nope nope" and started walking for the door. When I asked him if he was going to come help me take care of my 8 month old and 2 year old then he said, "I'M NOT DOING THIS WITH YOU" then walked out and slammed the door. If you have options choose anyone other than him. He has a God complex and thinks he's better than all of his patients. I truly hate this dr. It was so bad today I filed a medical grievance with the medical board today. I'm not the kind of person to do something like that. But it was seriously horrible fu*k this guy, man

I was not too happy with my dental visit. It took almost 45 minutes for the receptionist to find my insurance, and the whole time she was fussing about how hard it is to look up someone with Jose as their first name. After that, I was seen very quickly, and Dr. Antolin is nice enough, but I don't like how he cleaned my teeth. He started with the polish, and the dental tool he used was mechanic, so it made a terrible whirring sound while he cleaned my front teeth. All of my teeth were not cleaned, and the assistant only flossed my back molars, which I could have done at home. The receptionist had disappeared when I was done, and I waited 15 minutes before giving up and leaving because I was already late for my other appointments. Overall, I've had worse experiences, but I am definitely not going back, and I am not recommending this place to a person who cares about having clean teeth.

Stillwater, Lyle B MD FACS
After seeing this doctor several times, I realized, although he may not seem to have a great bedside manner at times, it is because he is paying very close attention to what I am saying, taking it all in. He doesn't miss anything. Ultimately, he is an excellent doctor because of it. He is not dismissive at all the way some doctors are the way they pat you on the back seeming to have a great bedside manner, but not really listening to you at all. I'd rather have Dr. Stillwater, who pays attention and knows what he's doing, than all the other so-so doctors with all their smiles and so-so knowledge put together.

Marie Bergeron, D.D.S.
I am very pleased with the dental service I'm receiving from Dr. Bergeron. She is very gentle and explains in detail what she is doing, she is very patient and answers all my questions. I am super happy with the dental results, Dr. Bergeron did an awesome job! Her hygienist TyTy did a great job (I had "deep cleaning" procedure). I read the negative reviews and am shocked. I've had no problems with Dr. Bergeron or the billing procedures; I was never overcharged - my dental insurance was never overcharged. Also, her prices are very reasonable.Barbara S.Visalia

Very through. I have been to at least 10 Neuro by the time I got here I was told I one neuro disorder that I had been taking major drugs for 18 years. He sent me to UCLA and did numerous test and I don't have that disorder. He found other things wrong. One was very simple, but mimics major neuro issues, I don't process B12. When it gets too low I can't walk, etc. The office rules are simple call and confirm that you got there reminder call. get there 15 min early. Well worth it for the EXCELLENT MD

BEST MD IN TOWN SAVED MY LIFE!!! when I was fired by my regular MD she took care of me until I could find a GP. She did a number of surgeries on me to correct damage from a hyserectomy. She has great attitude, great sense of humor. I needed that with being in the hospital can be pretty depressing and she is ray of sunshine on a gloomy day. Compassionate and talanted I can barely see the scars from my multiple surgeries. She is worth seeing.

Donald Nuwey DDS Inc
I would highly recommend this Endodontist . Everyone in that office go beyond for their patient care. The receptionist is very friendly and helpful and Donald answered all my questions. He even had to work on my tooth longer after 5pm because of my small mouth opening and my curved teeth problems. He was not annoyed by staying longer after hours on my tooth. I am totally satisfied with the treatment I received from this office!

Mark Cave DDS
I went to visit Mark D Cave DDS to get my teeth cleaned and was impressed with their commitment to stay up to date on the latest tools in the dental field. For example, instead of inserting a big needle in my mouth to get me numb, he used a small computerized tube that was very non-evasive. Moreover, their staff was very friendly and helpful.
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
