Patient Review By Paul H
Amazing, amazing staff and so very helpful! I was treated with respect here coming from a corporate dental office where they are very agressive with treatment options and try to get you to buy services you don't need. The staff in the front thoroughly looked into my insurance took the time to really help me and was just fantastic! Dr. Bocanegra is superb! He takes the time to go over everythhing with you and saves you money based on his expertise. His chairside manner is so very friendly and I have now become a new patient!

Mere words cannot express my appreciation fo rDr Bocanegra. He uses the finest techniques in dental procedures. During the prep for Irma, a family member (non patient) had an emergency and they fit him in. I have referred several people to him and each agree he is the best in his field. And to top it off he is a true gentlemen. Many thanks to Dr Bocanegra and his staff.

Patient Review By barbara v
After a routine cleaning, I found I needed a serious extraction due to an infection. I was leaving on vacation within 5 days. He not only did a perfect extraction, pain free, he also realigned my plate and added two new front teeth. He accomplished this all within 4 days and we left on schedule. My plate fit better than ever and I looked better than ever! Thank You Dr Bocanegra and Staff
