The initial examination and recording of my current state of dental health by technical assistant Luis and Dr. Face in person seemed very thorough and only minimally uncomfortable (but that is normal for the radiological portion of the exam, and much less than in earlier times; in other words, some discomfort cannot be avoided). Next, Dr. Face reviewed the images; explained things thoroughly; identified a problem area in one tooth; recommended a corrective procedure, which I readily acknowledged should be performed. Dr. Face's manner and diagnosis put me at ease, and I feel very comfortable with him, going forward. Of course, when he starts working on that tooth, that level of favorability may change ... LOL (Don't you just hate seeing LOL?) Finally, I transitioned to the hygienist for my semi-annual cleaning. These appointments have usually been booked with a hygienist named Charlotte. She was not available, so Lauren did the honors. If the experience of having one's teeth cleaned can ever be pleasant, this was it. Had I not needed to keep my mouth open, I could have napped through the whole procedure. Overall, I think SM Bay Dental has a lot of really good people in which they take justifiable pride. It is the place to go if you want to attain and/or maintain oral health.

Dr. Face and his dental ceramist explained to me the entire process and the purpose of taking a record of my whole mouth. They answered all my questions thoroughly. They were very courteous and considerate.

As usual, the visit with Dr. face went very well. He took his time to explain my diagnosis and treatment options and in a clear and understandable manner. I never felt rushed. His sense of humor was actually quite impressive (for a dentist!).

Procedure: 2 chipped front teeth filling/bonding without anesthesia Being in a dentist chair with Dr. Face is like inhaling happy gas without the happy gas. I felt confident/relaxed that I'm in good hands including all the hands, assistants (MaryAnn & Jennifer), hygienists (Charlotte) and hygiene & benefits coordinators (Patty, Ashlin, Jeanette, Leilani...). Dr. Face is highly skillful, competent, articulate, patient, and innovative. I truly feel that he cares, has integrity, and takes pride in his work. Old school treatment with fresh/vibrate energy. Treated by 5 other dentists in West LA, Dr. Face stands a level above. Thank you for helping me smile brighter. Stay GREAT, Dr. Face!!! :)
