"I hate going the dentist and have a pretty bad phobia about going but Dr. West was great. I had 2 root canals and a crown. Everyone was very friendly and Dr. West put me at ease completely. I did the sedation dentistry and after the procedure, I didn't even recall what happened. No pain and no worries during the procedures. The best experience I've had. Can't imagine going anywhere else."

Actual Patient

"Dr. West is an excellent clinician and has great staff. I have had 2 crowns done in his office in the last year and the experience was professional, smooth and pain-free. His current cutting edge technology allows the crown to be fabricated in-house and makes the entire process a lot quicker. My other crown was sent to a lab for fabrication and still a quick process and perfect fit. The staff is experienced, caring and professional as well. Given my experience of spending a lot of time in dental chairs I highly recommend Dr. West!!!"



V. Manuel

"I am a challenging case... I required extractions and implants, am phobic of facial injections, have a major mood disorder... Dr. West and his staff have met all these challenges and helped me become involved in my dental health. The restorations are the highest quality work (I love my implants) and everyone here has helped me go from a basket case to a happy healthy camper. Thanks, Doctor and Everyone!"
