I work directly with mentally disabled individuals in my community. I scheduled an appointment with your office for a young lady who has been having some dental issues. I want to commend your staff for providing such excellent customer service.

A happy patient from the Concord, CA general office

I want to thank you and your staff for taking care of my dental emergency while I was on vacation in San Diego last week. When I arrived at your office all of your staff was polite and kind. Thank you!

A happy patient from the Fremont, CA orthodontics office

When I brought my children to your Watsonville office for Orthodontic treatment I met the Orthodontic Manager.
Not only was she incredible in helping to get all 3 of my kids in braces but she was also concerned about the state of my own teeth. I will forever be changed because of my experience at Western Dental; my life will change for the better.
