I originally thought I would go to the largest clinic in town that was first on the list for Dental Departures. I saw a few negative online reviews for the largest clinic that gave me pause, while I couldn't find one negative review for Supreme. Also, the set-up with the clinic owning the hotel where I stayed the first night wasn't a positive for me, especially since the hotel wasn't great. I made my final decision on the night before to go to the second clinic on the list and not to the larger clinic. Ultimately not finding a single negative review online was the reason I went to Supreme since I was flying in from Memphis TN and did not have anyone to recommend a clinic. I was very happy with my experience. Don't be fooled by the cartoon tooth with a crown with an antiquated font for the name as the logo that looks like it is out of the fifties. This clinic uses the latest technology and does a lot of dental work. When I got there for the initial consultation, they immediately took me into a room and took a look at images I bought from my US dentist. They then took Xrays of particular teeth, which went onto a large screen nearby blown-up. My dentist was Fernanda Maldonado, a woman with 6 years of experience and who was comfortable with the latest technology. She was great, making sure I felt no discomfort and using the standard numbing Q-tips and shots like in the US. She handled three zirconia crowns for me.
They had a team of 3 people visit the clinic to handle two root canals for me and for other customers as well. I was extremely pleased with the professionalism of the team and was glad to hear that they serve many of the clinics in town. The owner speaks natural American English and lives near Yuma. They own 4 other clinics and have their own lab creating their crowns. I had my root canals and tooth prep on Day 1 and was back on Day 2 to get the crowns put on. A person from the lab came and ground down a couple of high spots on the crowns. They gave prescriptions for a mouthwash to help the gums heal more quickly, antibiotics and a couple of mild pain meds (did not make me sleepy). After eating a meal with the new crowns, I went back and Supreme did a bit more grinding. They now fit perfectly and there is no indication of any problem with the root canals either.
Supreme can't be beat!
