"My family and I have been with this office for more than 20 years and we won't go anywhere else. I also had bad experiences with other dentists in the past that it has caused anxiety every time I go see one for checkups or issues, but Dr. perez always does an amazing job in fixing any issue. I had a horrible tooth infection and the pain was excruciating. I was amazed to found out I had absolutely zero pain even after the numbing gel wore off and the pain just all vanished!"
