Great & friendly staff that really pampers you. They treat you like a guest rather than like a transaction.
What really sets them apart: technology (updated tools, giant screen for visuals, etc), check-in process, transparent doctors that clue you in about your dental health & procedures (11/10), the experience, and they have an air purifier everywhere!!!! I mean... not even my PCP has them.

While dental emergencies can strike anyone at any time, our patients who commit to regular preventive care appointments usually experience fewer problems over time. Professional cleanings with a registered dental hygienist allow us to take a proactive approach to your dental health and address issues while they are small. Despite your best efforts, deposits of mineralized plaque, known as tartar, adhere to areas of the teeth. These deposits create a nice home for millions of harmful bacteria. Left unchecked, they flood toxins into the gums, resulting in devastating chronic problems that can even result in the loss of teeth.
During your professional hygiene appointment, the removal of tartar is performed using specialized instruments and a prescription-strength polishing paste. This process is gentle, effectively eliminating stains and plaque while preserving the integrity of your teeth. The procedure leaves your teeth exceptionally smooth and shiny. As discoloration tends to settle into the enamel gradually, this method not only aids in slowing down the yellowing process but also results in a glossy surface that facilitates improved cleaning. Dentists in Riverside employ these techniques to ensure optimal oral health.
