The staff was very friendly and spoke good EnglishByrun, Mexico, 18 01 22

My first impression was WOW. From the minute you enter the clinic you knew it was clean, with soothing music playing in the background. The staff was very friendly and spoke good English. I had a good feeling right away. Dr. Meneses explained exactly what needed to be done. My wife, who hates going to the dentist, said to me afterwards, she would have no problem going there if needed. Highly recommended.

The staff was very helpful and pleasantMark, US, 18 11 18

I had two implants during my visit with Dr Alberto Hernandez which came out great. The jaw is still healing but I am eager to return in 6 months for the crown fittings. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Did not ever think I would look forward to seeing a dentist but now I do.

Gum Surgery $600 - $800
Gum surgeryGums are an important part of our body. They house the teeth which we employ to eat food, the energy currency of our body. Without healthy gums, we cannot expect to have healthy teeth. However, not all of us fully realize this and neglect their well being. This results in to different types of gum diseases which can be cured only through gum surgery.
Gum Contouring and Reshaping $600 - $800
Gum contouring and reshapingGum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a cosmetic form of dental treatment used to improve the general look of a person’s teeth. It is primarily used in cases where the individual has what is commonly known as ‘gummy smile’. This is a condition in which the gums cover too much of the teeth, usually the front teeth, and this can leave the length of the teeth looking too short, which can affect a person’s general desire to smile.Such a condition may be caused due to genetics, health circumstances or as a result of certain high blood pressure prescriptions. This can have an affect on an individual’s self-confidence and may see them do their best not to smile in public. Thankfully, gum contouring is a dental treatment which is painless and able to solve the problem of ‘gummy smile’ through quick and painless treatment
Soft Tissue Grafts $300 - $600
Soft tissue graft*There are three different types of soft-tissue grafts: °Free gingival grafts °Connective-tissue grafts °Pedicle grafts In a free gingival graft, a small strip of flesh is removed from the roof of the mouth (palate). The tissue, called the "graft," is then stitched to the gum tissue in the area being treated. A free graft is often used for people who naturally have little gum tissue around their teeth and need to have the gums enlarged. In a connective-tissue graft, a flap is cut in the roof of the mouth. The flap forms a "trap door" shape. Some tissue from under the flap is removed. The flap is then stitched back down. The tissue that was removed is known as subepithelial connective tissue. This graft tissue is slipped under the gum tissue that surrounds an exposed root. Then it is stitched into place. This is the most commonly used procedure for treating root exposure. A pedicle graft uses a flap of tissue from the gum of a tooth next to the one with recession. The flap is partially cut away, with one edge still attached. This flap is called a pedicle. It is slid sideways to cover the exposed root and stitched into place. A pedicle graft may be more successful than a free gingival graft. Thats because at least some of the blood vessels that feed the grafted section remain in place. However, a pedicle graft can be done only in certain cases. There must be a tooth next to the one being treated that has enough gum tissue to "share." With all of these procedures, many periodontists will use a periodontal dressing. This is a soft material with a texture like modeling clay. It will be used to cover and protect the grafted tissue for the first week or two of healing.
