Thank You for restoring my smile!!! Extremely Grateful!!!


Dr. Rivera was so kind to my mother who absolutely hates the dentist. They were very accommodating and worked very hard to reach an end state that worked for her and that she was completely happy with the end state. Dr. Rivera was very professional and friendly. He takes immense pride in his work. This was the best experience at the dentist by far.


Dr. Rivera was the best, he was very thorough and I felt very comfortable with him. Thank you!


Dr. Rivera was really informative and very pleasant. I look forward to getting my work done here. Every visit here I feel welcome and well taken care of. Dr. Rivera. And the assistants are so kind.


Dr. Rivera made my extensive dental experience more pleasant. I was extremely nervous, his care, compassion, empathy and skill were stellar. I see he has left his dental group. I look forward to following him to get further dental care. A+. I wish all dentists were like him.
