Dr. Salek and his dental team are Heaven sent, if I may exaggerate a little bit. For over 25 years, I haven’t met a good dentist and suffered wearing my dentures for a long time. I developed gum disease, poor ill fitting dentures and worst, I cannot enjoy my food, my smiles were fears instead of a happy, genuine one. At first, I was in doubts, apprehensive. But after meeting with Joelle, and explained whole process including a referral to financial assistance, I am ready. Kudos to Monica as well for being so kind and gentle. When I met Dr. Salek, I was very nervous and doubtful and very uncomfortable, but as soon as he introduced himself, all these nervousness and doubts etc., vanished!. Dr. Salek made me feel comfortable right away and I knew I am in the right place, and most especially, I am in good hands! Now, I am the most happiest, contented and proud patient of Dr. Salek and his team, they’re all heaven sent and life saver. My smiles, my overall dental issues resolved!,

I am so happy to have found Dr. Salek. He is very welcoming, kind, patient, personable, and professional. I was very happy that he took a more preventative approach to my current oral needs, instead of drilling into my teeth at the drop of a hat, as my last dentist seemed to want to do. At the same time, I find Dr. Salek to be very open-minded and to listen to my opinions on what I would like my oral care to look like. I very much appreciate that he takes the unrushed time to explain things to me and answer all of my questions, and he does so in such a kind and personable way. He seems to care for my overall oral health more than just making a buck. There were a few things he could have said I needed done in order for him to just make money off of both me and Medi-Cal, but I felt like he was honest in saying that they weren't necessary at this point. I feel like I'm in very good hands with Dr. Salek. Again, I am so grateful to have found him and I highly recommend him.

I could go on about how knowledgeable and articulate the good doctor is. I could tell you how cheerful and pleasant discussing pending and/or post procedure(s) has been. Nothing should be more convincing than the fact that on multiple occasions more than one of my children were terrified going in. He somehow manages to send them back out proudly displaying their pearly whites. Nothing illuminates his level of acumen better. Some people choose a profession; Dr. Salek was likely personally delivered by cherubim to his parents as his destiny was preordained. I have THAT level of confidence in this man. So should you.

I need extensive work however Dr.Salak was quick to break down my options and a clear path to comfort for my mouth. I would like homeopathy as a option in the future and it would be nice to have that combined. All in all the staff office and location was prime, very nice and state of the art tools.

The dentist was great, however, I was not satisfied at all with my teeth cleaning. It last about 10 mins, when other offices have spent an hour cleaning my teeth. The hygienist was not able to floss my teeth correctly & ended up getting floss stuck in between, which was never removed. She even skipped over a few teeth. My teeth were only polished. They did not remove any tarter or do anything else. I feel this visit was a waste & the hygienist was unqualified

The doctor I met today she was very nice, staff on the desk also nice but there a few things that I'm not quite impress. First I have 3 pm appt but I won't get to see doctors until 4 pm ( you should book me at 4 instead). Second, staff who took me for X-ray was not very nice. This is my first time here and she not give me the first impression at all or to make me feel welcome. All I hear from her is open, close, open, close and I'm so uncomfortable what she did to me.

Caring, attentive dentist, who truly listens and explains everything extremely well. He is kind, and cares for the well-being of the patient. He performed a tooth extraction for me and consulted with a nearby oral surgeon regarding the care and installation of a tooth implant. He is always warm, friendly, and concerned with stress-free and pain-free dentistry. His staff is also top-notch, communicative and inviting. A great practice, and I'm so happy he is my dentist!

I don't recommend Dr. Salek, here are some reasons why: 1. Every time I visited him, he made me wait 30 - 50 minutes after our scheduled appointment time. 2. While I waited for a permanent crown, I had a temporary crown put in. The temporary one lasted for an hour before it fell off and so I had to go back in. This happened six times. Each of those times I had to go back to put it in again. In the end, he accused me and told me that it was my fault. 3. He once cancelled my appointment 30 minu
