Dr. Rebecca Lavene is amazing!!! She saw my 8 year old daughter for a frenectomy procedure and it was flawless. She was so kind and gentle and made the entire experience such a fantastic one for both myself and my daughter. I wouldn't go anywhere else besides Dental Specialists of NW Arizona for this kind of specialized dental treatment. They deserves more than 5 stars!!!
in Las Vegas, NV |
I received such good treatment at the Dental Specialists of NW AZ. I don't like getting my teeth worked on but they did such a great job! I had to small procedure done that required them to numb me up. I was expecting it to be painful, but Dr Rebecca Lavene did it so smoothly and made me feel comfortable! The whole procedure was quick and painless and she made sure to tell me what to expect from start to finish. I will definitely be coming back! They were worth the 2 hour drive from Las Vegas!

Was anxious to have a tooth taken out, but had to do it since it was fractured. Staff was very friendly & helpful and Dr. Rebecca made sure I was very comfortable during my appointment. Will be going back to get the implant once I'm ready!

I would recommend her to everyone I know!
