Patient Testimonials

Clell had a Full-Mouth Reconstruction.

“Dr. Meserkhani was the third of many dentists I interviewed. As I continued my search, I found myself using Dr. Meserkhani as the standard to compare all others to. At this juncture, I returned to his practice for a second interview, which assured me I had found the right doctor. The cost was also within my budget and comparable to all qualified others.

“Though the amount of work required was exhaustive, it all went extremely well, due to the high-tech procedures and instruments in the hands of the most qualified doctor, who was surrounded by a highly trained and efficient staff.

“I have now had ample time to chew the most difficult of foods and have been 100% successful, without exception. My new teeth feel natural, and my family and I think they look great.”

— Clell

Snap-On Smile® and fear of the dentist

Kathy is a homemaker in Lemon Grove. She benefited from Snap-On Smile®.

“First! I must say I HATE COMING TO THE DENTIST!!! With that said, my experience here has been a good one. They are calming with me and let me calm down outside while I wait to be called.

“I’ve been coming here a long time, but without funds to pay for all the treatment I would like, I’ve had to take a longer time. Then one day in February, I was told about the snap on smile. The cost was affordable for me. I love them. I can bite food again. I LOVE IT!!!”

Brittany Patient Testimonials

“Over time, after having worn braces for four years, my teeth and bite began to shift again. I wanted to fix my smile without going through the process of braces again. Dr. Christensen suggested Invisalign. Not only did Invisalign straighten my teeth and fix my bite, it improved it more than braces had. Dr. Christensen and the friendly staff helped make every visit a comfortable and enjoyable experience.”
