Lessons You Learn as a Dentist

March 3, 2017 by  
Filed under Blog

When you’ve worked several years as a dentist, you might imagine that you eventually learn a thing or two. Some lessons are pretty much what you’d expect. Others might surprise you. Regardless, the reality is that if you put a lot into your profession, you’ll get a lot out of it. As such, City Dental Centers’ doctors and staff have learned a lot throughout their careers in the dental industry.

This is just a short compilation of some of the lessons learned over the years from both conducting procedures and working with patients in the dental industry.

Education & Experience Are Irreplaceable in the Dental Industry

Just when you think you’ve learned it all, something new will creep up around the corner. This is where continuing your education and having a desire to learn more and try new things is very important. All dentists are required to have a minimum level of education for their degree, but professional dentists who are best able to handle a dental crisis are constantly seeking new education.

Know When to Move On

Knowing when to let go and/or move on is important in this business. It isn’t just about knowing if you can hack it or not. It’s often about knowing how to hack it, or how to make your dental practice stand out from the rest.

The reality is that you can let another practice that is succeeding doing something wrong get to you, or you can find a way to do the right thing even better and your patients will love you for it. If you hold on to the negative, you’ll miss the positive. This is why it’s important to always think creatively and optimistically.

Be Creative

Plenty of dental practices are doing it the cookie-cutter way. Let them. Be unique and stand out. Find ways to make your patients happier. Save them money where you can. Get them excited about visiting the dentist. Plan events to bring in new patients. Get involved in your local community. Donate your time and skills to charities you care about. There are lots of ways you can change the world as a dentist. Don’t look to other dentists to figure out how. Carve your own path and make it happen!

You Need to Care About Your Patients

It’s not just about the money. If it is, you cannot be effective as a dentist. You have to care about your patients or you won’t make it through the tough times.

Patients will always know the difference. At City Dental Centers, and our newly opened City Dental Kids & Braces, we make it a priority to treat our patients, young and old, like family. We frequently get compliments on this unique approach to dentistry, hearing that the way we treat our patients is unlike anything they are used to experiencing.

There’s a difference between asking someone how their day is going and actually caring how their day is going. At our dental practices, we always care about our patients.

City Dental Centers is Here for YOU!

City Dental Centers and City Dental Kids & Braces are happy to be celebrating another year taking care of our patients and treating them like family. We look forward to continuing to serve you and our communities both locally and abroad. There’s always more you can learn as a dentist, and we look forward to continuing to better serve you in the months to come!

 

City Dental Centers and City Dental Kids & Braces were established by Dr. Sam Shahoveisi and Dr. Michael Danial to bring the experience of being like family to patients. With multiple locations across Southern California, City Dental Centers and City Dental Kids & Braces are the best choice for any and all of your dental concerns. The professionalism of their doctors will ensure you the best possible care before, during, and after your dental procedure.

Dental Checklist from City Dental Centers

March 3, 2017 by  
Filed under Blog

With a new year comes many resolutions for self improvement. Many choose gym memberships and some stop going after the first few months. Others choose to cut back on drinking, and find themselves breaking their resolution just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!

City Dental Centers wants to suggest a resolution often ignored: a more strict adherence to your dental hygiene. However, don’t let this be a resolution you give up on within the first few months. Cavities resulting from bad oral hygiene do not take a vacation… and neither should you!

City Dental Centers is going to review some of the most important dental activities to dedicate yourself to in the new year.

Brush Twice a Day ALWAYS

Brushing twice a day is the minimum requirement for good oral hygiene. This means in special circumstances, brushing more than twice per day may be recommended. If you’re eating a lot of candy throughout the day, such as during Easter or Halloween, brushing more than twice a day is a great idea. That being said, there should never be an excuse to brush less than twice a day. The best times are in the morning and at night. Make time and do it right!

Floss Daily

Many adults still take issue with flossing their teeth daily. Cavities can easily form between the teeth if you do not give them the proper attention. There are many special flosses for adults who have difficulty brushing between teeth that have tight gaps. There is even a flossing tool that uses water to floss your teeth! Devices like these make flossing easy, and even fun if you can find the child in you. There is no excuse, regardless of your specific dental situation, to skip out on flossing. Just do whatever it takes to make it happen at least once daily!

Commit To a Better Diet

Most adults, with few exceptions, can’t say they couldn’t benefit from a better diet. Think about cutting back on sweets, sodas, and fast food. Spend time making health eating a priority. Your body will thank you for it… and so will your dentist when you avoid cavities!

Promote Good Habits In Your Children

Our children are the future. Make sure your kids are brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, and eat a healthy diet. Schedule your child for regular dental checkups with a reputable pediatric dentist. A good example is City Dental Kids & Braces, a new dental practice opened by the founders of City Dental Centers Dr. Sam Shahoveisi and Dr. Michael Danial. Feel free to visit their brand new website to schedule an appointment.

Your kids deserve the best. Visiting City Dental Kids & Braces with the specially trained doctors and staff will help ensure your children grow into responsible adults in taking care of their oral hygiene.

Visit Your Dentist Every Six Months

If you’re visiting the dentist properly, you should be booking two appointments in the year 2017. Many adults do not schedule regular checkups. Some adults push it out to a year. Others may not see the dentist for years! This is how hidden problems form. Get your dental visits on the calendar!

City Dental Centers is Here for YOU!

For all your dental needs, for both adults and kids, City Dental Centers and City Dental Centers Kids & Braces are here for you! Make 2017 a great year in accomplishing your personal goals, but also make some time to make sure your teeth are happy too!

 

City Dental Centers and City Dental Kids & Braces were established by Dr. Sam Shahoveisi and Dr. Michael Danial to bring the experience of being like family to patients.

The Best Valentine’s Day Gift is a Smile

February 14, 2017 by  
Filed under Blog

What brightens up your day more than a smile? To anyone who has a special someone this Valentine’s Day, it should be a no-brainer that what will brighten that special day most won’t be the chocolates, the flowers, or even a good movie. It will be the smile on that beautiful person’s face.

So it should go without saying that you shouldn’t go on that special date with teeth full of chocolate or bad breath from unhealthy foods! If the best gift your valentine can give you for this holiday is their smile, then the best gift you can give them back is your smile in return!

Keep in mind this article is NOT an excuse to skip out on a Valentine’s Day gift! It is simply a reminder to pay some attention to your oral health on this special holiday. Like Halloween, it’s easy to focus on the sweets and forget the smile. Here’s some ways to make your smile brighter for Valentine’s Day, and even after the holiday is over!

Schedule a Whitening Session

Whether it’s for Valentine’s Day or some other date, in-office teeth whitening is a great way to brighten up your smile. It can be more affordable than you think, and a good consideration for couples is to book whitening sessions together so you can come out with smiles as bright as your future together!

While there are over the counter alternatives, generally in-office treatments work the best and last the longest.

Consider Dental Surgery You’ve Been Putting Off

Still haven’t gotten around to getting braces to correct your bite? Got a gap between your teeth simple bonding could fix? Is there a chipped tooth you got a while back you just keep forgetting about (until you smile in the mirror)?

Whether it’s surgery for her or surgery for him, dental surgery can make a big difference in the appearance of your smile.

Now not all changes happen overnight. The most dramatic of changes will take more than one visit. But don’t you owe it to yourself, and your partner, to make your smile as bright as possible? They will love you regardless, but your confidence may shine through a little better. And added confidence on either side benefits both sides.

Review Your Dental Habits

Brush twice a day. Floss daily. Use mouth wash at the very least before an important date. It’s all common sense! But it’s shocking how many people forget simple manners before going on a date. Whether it’s your first date or 1000th date, your attention to your oral health should never falter.

When you go in for that kiss end of the night, don’t let a mouth smelling of stinky cheese give your night a turn for the worst!

Make Healthy Diet Choices

Eat healthy foods. Avoid sugary sodas and other drinks. Limit your intake of candy. If you chew gum, avoid the kind that is overly sugary and understand that in the end, brushing your teeth beats chewing gum any day. You owe it to yourself and your valentine to take care of yourself and eat (and drink) right!

Exercise Regularly

Exercise benefits the immune system which improves every party of your body, including the health of your teeth and gums. Take the time to stay active. You’ll look good and feel good too. Your partner will definitely notice it.

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Make sure you and your significant other book regular dental exams every 6 months. Cavities only become more detrimental when they go ignored. Don’t be afraid of the dentist! They are here to help you. Schedule your next appointment with the friendly staff of City Dental Centers!

City Dental Centers is Here for YOU!

City Dental Centers and our pediatric dental practice City Dental Kids & Braces wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day and look forward to treating you and your loved ones at your next appointment. We look forward to continuing to serve you and our communities both locally and abroad. Take care of yourself and your loved ones this Valentine’s Day and consider scheduling an appointment with City Dental Centers!

When to Consider Braces for Your Kids

December 20, 2016 by  
Filed under Blog

There are a lot of concerns kids may have about getting their first set of braces. Many children are worried about how their smile will be altered just following the procedure. Will the other kids accept them? Will they be made fun of? Will they hurt?

A dentist specializing in children’s dentistry is the best consideration due to the fact that dentists with a specialty in taking care of kids are better able to sensitively  handle the concerns of a child going through this situation. Fortunately for patients in the Ontario, CA area, City Dental Centers has recently opened City Dental Kids & Braces to achieve just that.

But when should you begin considering braces for your kids? Here are some considerations worth making.

Age Isn’t the Only Indicator

Many parents think that there is a certain age when they should take their kids to see an orthodontist. The reality is that age isn’t the only indicator or even necessarily one of the main ones. Children can go to their first orthodontist visit at any age and the most important indicator is actually need. There are many ways to tell if your child needs to see an orthodontist.

Jaw Issues and Eating Habits

There are many indicators that your child needs to see an orthodontist. The most obvious one is if your children’s teeth are crooked in appearance. Other appearance issues may come from the upper and lower jaws being different in size, known as malocclusion. One example occurs if the upper jaw is bigger than the lower jaw, causing what is known as an overbite. The reverse situation, where the lower jaw is bigger than the upper jaw, causes an underbite.

Less obvious problems may be discovered over time. For example, if your child has trouble biting completely through a sandwich, this may be an indicator that their teeth, even if they appear straight, are not biting down all the way due to alignment issues.

Bad Oral Habits

If your child has any bad oral hygiene habits, such as thumb sucking, they may be prone to needing orthodontic work sooner than other children. Night time teeth grinding may warrant you asking your dentist or orthodontist about special head gear to prevent the activity from taking place.

Accidents and Other Issues

If your child has had any accidents or other issues occur to their teeth, as well as if the baby teeth were lost too soon, orthodontic work is frequently recommended sooner rather than later.

Confidence Problems

While talked about less often, having crooked teeth can wear on a child’s confidence. If your child ever expresses frustration in their smile that may be fixed by having their teeth straightened and/or jaw aligned, it’s a good idea to visit a dentist to see what options may be available. In many cases, insurance may cover some or all of the costs if the work is not just cosmetic related and actually impacts the functionality of the mouth.

Dentist Recommendation

It’s a good idea to start scheduling regular dental checkups for your child at a young age. In most cases, your dentist will be able to recommend to you when you should schedule your child’s first orthodontic appointment. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Make sure your child sees the dentist regularly and go off the advice of your trusted dentist from there.

For all your children’s dentistry needs, choose City Dental Kids & Braces!

City Dental Kids & Braces

What a Dental Visit Meant to Me (Confidence in a Smile: Part 2)

December 19, 2016 by  
Filed under Blog

For the past several months as a member of the City Dental Centers team, I have had the joy of writing about a number of patients whose lives were transformed from the dental procedures performed by this fine company. We asked the question, “What can a dental visit mean to you?”, but I never expected how profound the answers would be. I heard stories from individuals having such common concerns as fear of the dentist, to others who needed to see a dentist from something as serious as a violent attack that damaged their teeth.

The common denominator in all of these stories and their beautiful conclusions was City Dental Centers. While the story I’m writing will be one of words, theirs is one of smiles that will surely shape their local communities in ways I have never before witnessed from an organization dedicated to dentistry.

I’m not going to lie: it’s my job to speak well of the people I work with. However, City Dental Centers has transformed a life close to me that until now has left me without words to describe. My beautiful girlfriend, Kyrstin Runco, Kiki, has a brand new smile thanks to Dr. Sam and Dr. Mike of City Dental Centers and I’m proud to share her story with you all.

The Condition Doesn’t Describe the Heartache

Kiki was born with weak enamel, but that doesn’t explain the pain and hardship it caused in her life. Kiki had done everything to overcome the problem from brushing more than twice a day to changing her diet. She’s vegan and heavily limits intake of sweets, but her teeth were still deteriorating at a rapid pace.

“I love kids,” Kiki began, “but I can’t tell you how many times a kid asked me if I had something stuck in my teeth, referring to the large cavity I had in the front of my teeth. It’s heartbreaking because kids are so honest about things like that, so you know other people see it but just aren’t saying anything. It makes it difficult to smile or feel confident about anything in life.”

As her boyfriend, I loved my girlfriend with indifference to her problem and hardly noticed it. But I knew that she did notice it. I held her one day in my arms as she cried and I asked her what was wrong. “It’s my teeth,” she said. “They’re in so much pain and there’s nothing I can do about it.”

I knew the pain she spoke of wasn’t just physical. Kiki had been struggling much harder with the emotional pain of feeling like she was flawed in some way that others could see and she could do nothing about.

But I wanted to do something about it and assured her I would. I contacted City Dental Centers’ founders Dr. Sam and Dr. Mike and asked them what they could do for Kiki.

“They’re the best,” I said. “I know you’re scared, but trust them. Okay?”

“Okay,” she said.

The Road to Recovery

Within a month, Kiki was schedule for her first dental visit in Pico Rivera, California. Reno, Nevada residents, we had to drive several hours away from home to make each visit. Often driving there and back the same day, the trips were a struggle. It was particularly difficult due to Kiki’s pain during the first trip. But we continued on, knowing that we were being taken care of by first class professionals.

“I remember how tired Paul, my boyfriend, was getting,” Kiki began. “I asked one of the staff if he was doing alright during one of my visits and apparently they let him take a nap in one of the empty rooms. I couldn’t believe it! It was a completely different kind of dental experience than any I’d had before.”

Dr. Sam was the dentist to handle Kiki’s care.

“He kept asking me if I was comfortable and if I felt alright,” Kiki said. “I have never had a dentist care that much and genuinely mean what they said. And to think my boyfriend was taking a nap in one of their rooms, it wasn’t like anything I’d experienced before. We didn’t feel like patients. We felt like close friends.”

4 Visits Later

Kiki’s extensive treatment took 4 visits to complete, but she cried on the first visit when she looked in the mirror and saw her smile. Even not yet finished, she was in tears from how happy she was.

“I remember when my mother first saw my smile,” Kiki began. “She started crying and she thanked my boyfriend, hugging him. I’m very grateful for City Dental Centers and him arranging to get my teeth fixed.”

I couldn’t take credit for the incredible work completed by City Dental Centers. Kiki’s smile is a work of art. I’m forever grateful for knowing Dr. Sam and Dr. Mike and them being able to take care of my girlfriend’s smile.

So what does a dental visit mean to me? I’ve done my best to put it into words, but the answer is I really can’t. I wish I could say what it feels like every time she smiles at me, comfortably and confidently, thanks to the work this incredible team has done.

It’s a thing of beauty, a miracle I could never hope to fully describe.

Thank you Dr. Sam and Dr. Mike. Thank you for the care you put into your patients and the incredible staff that works for you. Thank you City Dental Centers!

Porcelain Veneers in Pico Rivera, Patient Satisfaction Review

August 29, 2016 by  
Filed under Blog

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Kiki Runco, who was treated at our Pico Rivera location. Kiki had a life-changing experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

You may already be aware of Kiki’s dental situation from our other article we shared here. This is not the conclusion of her story, as she is still being treated at City Dental Centers, but being as Kiki got her first glimpse at her porcelain veneers in her latest visit, we wanted to tell you how she likes them!

The Problem

As you might now be aware, Kiki suffers from a hereditary defect and has weak enamel. This means that her teeth deteriorate rather easily and quickly regardless of preventative measures.

Kiki has already had multiple extractions performed in order to replace damaged teeth. Dr. Sam had created a temporary mold to get Kiki by while her porcelain veneers were developed. During her latest visit, Kiki had her front veneers placed on her teeth and new temporary teeth placed while her crowns and bridges were finished.

City Dental Centers Provides the Solution

image1Porcelain veneers are one of the best options in any case involving improving your teeth, either for functional or cosmetic purposes. City Dental Centers is in a unique position to provide the best made porcelain veneers imaginable. The reason for this is that City Dental Centers develops their porcelain veneers using their own, patient-exclusive dental lab.

Why is this important? Quality control, of course. Few dental practices can claim they develop all their dental products such as veneers, bridges, etc in house. Many order from third parties to save money, meaning the quality suffers. When quality suffers, there’s no telling how short a period of time it will be before your visiting the dentist again for replacements. Fortunately for Kiki, City Dental Centers gave her quality veneers professionally made in their lab during her latest visit earlier this month.

“One of my teeth in the front had a very large cavity. It was particularly noticeable every time I smiled,” Kiki began. “With that fixed, I feel more confident. They look really clean and white. I feel now like I have a ravishing smile and feel more confident smiling.”

The Impact On Kiki’s Life

As with any full-mouth dental restoration, it takes time to fully experience the effects of the procedure. Kiki still has another visit to go before her work is complete, but she’s loving the results it has had on her dental health and the confidence with which she approaches her everyday life.

“My confidence has skyrocketed,” Kiki says. “I’m looking forward to finally having my final visit done.”

With only one more visit remaining and Kiki’s teeth already looking amazing, she looks forward to how great her teeth are going to look when there is no more work left to be done.

Why Fair Payment Plans are Important in Dentistry

August 29, 2016 by  
Filed under Blog

As you might be aware, trust is very important when it comes to picking a dentist. You’re trusting a person to have the professionalism and experience needed to resolve dental conditions that require years of training while being attentive to your needs for comfort. On top of all that, you want to ensure that the work is performed as economically as possible while professionally performed. Unfortunately for individuals who chose to work with SmileCare, aka Coast Dental Services, Inc., they were allegedly let down in all of these areas.

In this article, City Dental Centers takes a look at SmileCare, a company now involved in a class action lawsuit for allegedly implementing unfair payment plans and defrauding their clients. We also discuss why fair payment plans and professional treatment are important in dentistry and how they are a standard in our offices.

SmileCare and the Class Action Lawsuit Claims

banknotes and dental toolsSmileCare was purchased by Coast Dental Services, Inc. in 2012. It is common for consumers at their 11 Coast Dental Services and 46 SmileCare locations to be enrolled in a treatment plan that requires substantial deposits. Upon completing the plan or cancelling it, many patients were left with a credit balance on their accounts. Allegedly, the companies have been keeping the balance rather than returning it to their consumers.

Hundreds of complaints have been posted regarding the deceitful practices of these companies by California consumers leading to a class action lawsuit against them. Beyond the fraudulent refusal to return credit balances, many consumers are claiming the procedures themselves were botched or improperly performed. Some of the horror stories online include accusations of the company performing procedures that weren’t necessary, doctors lacking in regard for the comfort of patients during treatments, and even lying about their patients’ income to pass enrollment requirements for the treatment plans.

Many are coming forward in regards to this class action lawsuit. While the case is still being fought, a simple Google search of SmileCare returns several filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau, a Facebook page against the company, and many negative reviews. It’s clear to see that some wrong was done to many individuals who have worked with this company.

Why Many Patients Agree to Unfair Payment Plans

Unfortunately, many patients at dental clinics agree to unfair payment plans or seemingly fair payment plans that are offered by sketchy companies. The reason for this is that dental care, particularly for patients with severe dental issues, can be very expensive. Often times, getting both professional treatment and affordable payment plans just seems difficult if not impossible to discover in a single place. Many shady companies are aware of this fact, and have made millions if not billions collectively marketing themselves through radio, television, and other media as an affordable way to get a brand new smile with little to no money down. These companies are no different from car salesmen who sell lemons to consumers who ultimately won’t be able to afford the plans anyway. The plan is a ripoff and so is the product.

The reality is that while professional work can be performed under a fair treatment plan, it has to be realistic. Just because someone is offering what appears to be a good treatment plan doesn’t mean there aren’t hidden pitfalls in the fine print or that the service provided will even be professional enough to be worth doing. Focus on quality first, then look into the policies of the company in terms of their payment plans.

Fortunately for all our clients, City Dental Centers offers fair, affordable payment plans for professional care at any of our four offices in Southern California. For more information, call: 888-764-5326.

Dentist in Ontario, Patient Satisfaction Review

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Leticia Chavez, who was treated at our Ontario location. Leticia had a great experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

The Problem

Leticia was missing one of her molars. Molar teeth are large, flat teeth at the back of the mouth. They are used primarily to grind food during chewing. Missing one or more molars can cause several problems, including difficulty chewing food. In Leticia’s case, missing one of her molars was causing her to put more pressure on one side of the mouth. This can cause pain, discomfort, and severe damage to the teeth over time, as the bite is meant to work with symmetry and support.

Leticia chose City Dental Centers for her treatment and was happy with the results!

City Dental Centers Provides the Solution

Customer ReviewLeticia claims that City Dental Centers was “great” and “really helpful” during her treatment. Her issue was resolved, alleviating the discomfort and difficulty chewing she had previously experienced. The doctors and staff at City Dental Centers provided her the best in treatment, ensuring that her problem was resolved professionally and comfortably.

The Impact On Leticia’s Life

Leticia claims that this dental change has made an impact on her life. Regarding her dental issues and treatment, Leticia claims that, “I am more confident.” When asked if she recommends City Dental Centers to friends and family, Leticia says, “Yes,” and adds that, “They will help you with the economical part,” where needed.

City Dental Centers would like to add that we offer affordable and convenient payment plans. For more information, click here or give us a call: 888-764-5326. We understand that every situation is unique and that finances should not be a reason to neglect your dental care. This is why we make it easy to cover costs associated with your care.

Dentist in Azusa, Patient Satisfaction Review

Filed under Blog

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Diana Lee, who was treated at our Azusa location. Diana had a fantastic experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

The Problem

Diana was experiencing a problem with multiple cavities. Unfortunately for Diana, she had long experienced a fear of dentists that kept her from getting her problem resolved. Often times, a patient experiencing such fear will not see a dentist for years. In Diana’s case, she had not seen a dentist in 5 years. Diana even claims she walked out of dental offices because of anxiety and fear of dental procedures.

Diana gave City Dental Centers a chance with her care and the results were fantastic!

Customer ReviewDiana came in City Dental Centers’ Azusa office uneasy and apprehensive. Diana was treated by Dr. Sara. Diana says that Dr. Sara and her staff were great!

“She spent time talking to me about my fears and previous experiences at other dental offices,” Diana began. “She made me feel very at ease and comfortable.”

The Impact On Diana’s Life

Since Diana’s first visit with City Dental Centers, Diana has been back several times. “Each visit is as pleasant as the previous one,” she says. “I believe now that I am no longer afraid.”

Diana further states she will take better care of her teeth and if there is a problem, she will be sure to handle it immediately, seeing a dentist if needed.

When asked if Diana refers City Dental Centers to friends and family, she says, “Most definitely. I feel the staff at this office cares about the patient and is truly concerned about your well being.

“They are always pleasant, accommodating, and friendly. They helped me with my fear of dentists and I am now looking forward to my dental appointments.”

City Dental Centers would like to remind patients that being afraid of the dentist into adulthood is more common than you might think. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, and any dentist that would make you feel otherwise is unworthy of your care.

City Dental Centers treats their patients like family, ensuring every dental visit is as comfortable as possible. Fear of the dentist is commonly born out of bad experiences with past dentists that weren’t genuinely concerned for the well being of their patients. City Dental Centers exceeds expectations, showing a heartfelt concern for their patients that strips away fear and anxiety quickly.

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Gertha Hoeing, who was treated at our Ontario location. Gertha had the best experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

The Problem

One of the most terrifying experiences an individual can go through is one involving the threat of or actual infliction of violence. Gertha Hoeing, through an encounter with a psychiatric patient, was victimized by the latter situation at her work. Gertha not only had several broken molars and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) from the encounter, but the encounter left her with great physical and emotional pain following the experience. Gertha, along with other individuals who have experienced a similarly violent and traumatic experience, generally experience a great amount of fear following the event and medical and/or dental care can be more difficult to deal with.

Gertha chose City Dental Centers for her care and the results were fantastic!

Customer ReviewGertha says her problem was resolved with great success. Gertha’s teeth were repaired and pain from the TMJ was alleviated. “Great staff, treatment, and overall excellent care,” Gertha says of her experience with the doctors at City Dental Centers.

City Dental Centers wishes to remind the community as well that emergency patients may visit and be treated in our clinic same day, particularly in the event of a violent or other unforeseen encounter afflicting the teeth. If you are badly hurt, please call 911 and visit a hospital, particularly if more than your dental health is at risk. However, our dental center will take emergency dental issues and treat them same day.

The Impact On Gertha’s Life

Gertha says she no longer experiences pain and her repaired teeth continue to do well. When asked if Gertha refers her friends and family to City Dental Centers, she responded, “I have, and will continue to do so. They are the best!”

City Dental Centers is known for treating their patients like family and in situations where pain is a concern, mitigating or eliminating pain and discomfort is paramount to the care they provide to their patients. This is particularly important in situations like Gertha’s, and others that may end up being dental emergencies. Regardless, City Dental Centers is here to provide the best in patient care.
