“Since moving from out of state, I’ve been looking for a San Diego dentist I can trust. I had really let things go in the last couple of years, and by the time I got to California, I had a broken tooth and had lots of cavities that had gotten pretty bad. I’m trying to get healthy overall these days, and I knew I wanted to find a modern dentist that used non-toxic materials. I also wanted someone who could do what I needed quickly and efficiently, something the last dentist I went to couldn’t manage.
When I called for an appointment, the staff made me feel like I was making the right choice for my needs, so I went in for a checkup and to meet Dr. Woods. She seemed the exact opposite of the old-fashioned dentist I had back home. At that first appointment, they did everything necessary to figure out the extent of my problems, including an x-ray and a 3D scan, which I’d never had before. Then, Dr. Woods explained all the problems and solutions available, including an extraction I needed done on the broken tooth. The treatment coordinator helped me understand the costs, which were reasonable.
I had the extraction first and got a temporary bridge to fill the space. It looked and felt fine. Then I went back to have the fillings I needed and the permanent bridge. They did those all at once. I’ll need a crown on one of the teeth eventually, but the filling is holding for now and I can save that for a few months down the road.
I know that I shouldn’t have waited so long to go to a dentist and I could have solved some of these problems before they got as bad as they were, but Dr. Woods didn’t seem to judge me. She and the team just did the job and got things put back together. I’m grateful for that.”
