Dr. Cortez & staff saw me in less than 12 hours from the time I called them. I needed an Emergency Root Canal & I am finally out of pain thanks to Dr. Cortez. I am returning in a week for a permanent crown, deep cleaning & xrays. I have severe dental anxiety & Dr. Cortez makes me excited to come back and get my dental health up to par. He’s the best!!!!

Because I am so very anxious about going to the dentist, I popped into this dental office to get a feeling about whether this was a place I'd feel comfortable. I spoke with the receptionist, and the doctor even came out to meet me, which was very kind. I made an appointment for a cleaning. Apparently the hygienist was not told of my fear. She spent the entire hour saying that I had too much gum recession and that she was surprised that ALL my teeth weren't loose. How horrible and terrifying to say to a person already so frightened of dental procedures! My anxiety level was at maximum! She said I needed a $1,200 cleaning to save my teeth. I did go to a specialist who said my gums are fine. I assume the hygienists are independent contractors and that she was just looking to make some money off of me. The two stars are for the dentist. He seemed like a nice guy. But my experience was zero stars.

I had a great visit with Dr. Cortes. It was my first time at his office. He explained to me what I needed to have done. It will be very expensive and I need to have four teeth extracted and a bridge put in. I feel I am in good hands. However, it is a three month procedure and extremely costly.

Got me in fast after my dentist of 8 years gave me a 3 week waiting period as a result of a doctor leaving. I found him and went in to get 4 chips/poor fillings fixed within days. He did great work, I was comfortable and he made sure I understood everything that was going on. Would recommend. The office is very nice and so is the staff.

Dr. Cortes and his staff are amazing. They provide patients with full information to make educated decisions about the dental care they receive, and are willing to work with clients to provide services within their budget or even provide installment plans. Everyone is very courteous and they work hard to ensure that their patients are as comfortable as possible. When I had to make a business call after an appointment, Dr. Cortes even let me use his personal office. I highly recommend Dr. Cortes

I attended Dr Cortes Practice and had a cleaning followed by a number of fillings and a Crown. This work was done very sub par and I ended up in immense pain following the work. I then learned that I needed a root canal that Dr Cortes is unable to perform. (Something I was not aware of before procedures were started) I am now in the process of having all this work corrected. Dr Cortes is unwilling to take any responsibility for this. Basic Cleaning etc.. No problem. But if you have any s

Dr. Cortes is a highly skilled dentist with a knowledgeable support team. When I needed a root canal rather than a crown, he was able to handle the procedure right away in his office rather than referring me to a endodontist. This was the ideal patient experience as it saved time and money. Dr. Cortes and his team are very personable and like to connect with their patients. They continually checked in with me to make sure I wasn't experiencing any pain.
