Recently, the crown I had on my front tooth cracked after its lifespan ran its course. Dr. Alder immediately made the time to see me and provide a temporary replacement, so I could return to normal life. Once the permanent crown was ready to be fitted, it was noticed that the color shades weren’t matching to my specifics. Dr. Alder took the time to work with me so my two front teeth matched (not an easy task). Dr. Alder insisted that I was satisfied 100%. The crown came back and it was a perfect match. I couldn’t be more happy.
The process was ridiculously simple. Dr. Alder adjusted a few things that required no anesthetic and then he took an impression. About a week later I was shown a model of what my teeth would look like. The actual seating of the veneers took no more than 40 minutes – 10 veneers. Overall I’d say it was one of the best dental experiences of my life. I went from barely ever smiling to showing off my teeth in less than two weeks – talk about a life changer.
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.
