    Had a crown and filling done at the same time with no real discomfort. Procedure was relatively quick and all staff made me as comfortable as possible for the duration of time there.

    My visit outstanding. The staff was pleasant and I didn't have to wait more than five minutes, even though I was almost 10 minutes late. Dr. Belen explained the results of my examination and discussed treatment options.

    Dr. Vasco did a great job building up areas of worn enamel and shaping 8 front teeth. The result was "like night and day." I wish she could bring the rest of me up to the same standard.

    I like going to dr Belen's office, that is unusual for me as I do not generally enjoy going to the dentist . What I like is the feeling of belonging created my entire office staff learning your name. Also if you are just in for a cleaning many members of the team will come over just to say hello. Another thing that Dr. Belen does very well is pain control. Shots to numb me were always stressful, however Dr. Belen uses a micro needle and I am no longer so tense. It dose cost a bit more to get dental work done there but, they do great work and that work is supported by many new machines for X-ray, scanning teeth, and seeing into the tiny places in ones mouth is easy with the microscope Dr. Belen uses. As one who has had much dental work this is one of the easiest places to be stress and pain free while sitting in the chare.

    The staff are not only pleasant but also informative. Dr Belen and his team are competent and efficient. The office and procedure rooms are clean and inviting. hey even called a few days after my dental work to make certain that I had no questions or concerns that needed to be addressed. I am actually looking forward to going back to the dentist!
