Patient Review By Ann S

Our experience at Dental Implant and Reconstructive Center was great! During an especially challenging dental situation for my son, Dr. Esguerra and her team were not only compassionate and understanding to the stress of our situation, but did an amazing job of communicating with us throughout the whole process. They always worked with us to find appointments that fit our schedule and worked hard to make sure that my son and I were happy with the results of each procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Esguerra and her team. Thanks for giving my son his smile back!

Patient Review By Cheng-Khee C

Dr. Roxanna Esguerra is among the best professionals I have met in my life. During the entire processes of my dental work, she was courteous, thoughtful, integral, cautious, professional and perfectionistic. In my opinion, she has set up the high professional standards for others to follow. In addition, I admire and appreciate Dr. Esguerra’s dental and clerical assistants. They worked hard with dedication, enthusiasm and efficiency as a harmonious team to provide patients the best service! Overall, I have received the best dental work. My teeth look great, my bites are perfect and I can enjoy all my favorite foods. All these have changed my life! On the last day of my visit when my procedure was completed, I felt that I belong to the Dental Implant & Reconstructive Center family, and reluctant to leave!
