As a new patient at Atlantic Dental, I wasn't sure what to expect from my new dentist. I don't ever really look forward to visiting the dentist, but was long overdue for a cleaning/exam, needed a crown re-cemented, and had a gingival abscess problem that required professional attention. I hadn't been in the area long, and the Atlantic Dental office was close to home, which is why I selected it. I was initially a little set aback when I arrived to discover there had been a scheduling error, though they were still able to accommodate me on arrival. Any apprehensions dissipated after meeting and discussing with Dr. Narda Rodriguez. Her open and friendly demeanor well-complimented her obvious intelligence and patient chair-side manner. Her explanations were clear and thorough. Though I am by no means a dentist, I have a doctorate from medical school and am pretty good at assessing health care competency. Importantly, Dr. Rodriguez has extremely gentle hands (small, too:), an essential trait for practicing good, pain-free dentistry. After two visits now, I am comfortable in ranking Dr. Rodriguez at the very top of all dentists that I have had personal experience with as a patient. Though I hope that my future dentistry experiences are relatively uneventful, Dr. Narda Rodriguez will from now on be my "go-to" dentist for any dental issues that may arise!
Also, I had the pleasure of meeting and receiving a prophylactic cleaning from Fernando (didn't catch his last name), who also provided top-notch care and probably the most thorough routine cleaning that I've ever had. He was an oral surgeon in his home country (Columbia), and now acts as a dental hygienist, and a very good one--it is especially clear that his training goes way beyond what is typical for "only" a hygienist--he remains a "Doctor" in my eyes. He, too, will be my "go-to" hygienist for the future.
I am highly appreciative of the quality care received by these two outstanding dental health experts, and provide nothing less than my very strongest recommendation of their talents and expertise!
