Your Smile is My Passion…
Dr. Alder has the training and chairside manner to put you at ease.
Come in and be treated like a whole person, not just another patient. Our doctor gives you the special, individualized attention you deserve.
Since a young age, teeth cleaning has never been something that I enjoyed. When I started seeing Dr. Flores and Dr. Alder many years ago, my view changed. I think my favorite thing about this office, is how personal they are toward their patients. Michael is always there to greet me by name when I walk in the door. Dr. Alder always takes the time to ask you how everything is going. They do not rush in and out, but take the time to discuss dental health, as well as everyday life. I think that is becoming something rare in the health field today.
Excellent “chair-side” manners are a given when I visit Dr. Alder. The notion that he comes in and gets right to work on ones mouth does not exist here. Time is spent catching up on the patient’s life, any medical or dental issues or changes, and discussing the procedure for the day. This process relaxes me and provides the assurance the doctor has a genuine concern for me and my dental needs.
Dr. Alder is hands down the best dentist we have ever been to! Our entire family are his patients. The team at Newport Beach Dental has successfully and skillfully handled any and all our dental needs. Not one member of our family avoids the dentist anymore – not even my teenage son!! Thank you Dr. Alder and the Newport Beach Dental team!
