Don't waist your time and money going to other dentist. If you want great and thorough dental care, with friendly staff, go to Arden Park Dental Care. Dr. Formoli is an amazing, caring, gentle doctor, go above and beyond to make sure that my needs are met. Thank you very much!

Review for Dr. Formoli

He made me feel like an irrational woman and discredited every symptom I described to him. His condescending remarks made me feel so shamed and hurt and in the end he blamed everything on anxiety. I could not get away from him fast enough. I will never return to him.

Review for Dr. Agaiby

She won't even schedule an appointment and will have her nurse call you. I was on a very dangerous medication change and she would not make an appointment but would say I only need to talk to the nurse... it'd be over a year before I could see her.
