I had a work injury where I developed TMJ, which caused my bite to be off thus causing excruciating pain (neck, headaches, shoulders, arms, and left ear). The first dentist who began my treatment demanded he be paid half before he would commence my treatment. OMG, that dentist in Oxnard, CA put gold crowns on all my molars and crowns on my front upper teeth and had to use a splint (to open my bite). I was still in pain.
Four years and 52K later, I was still in pain. A friend (who works for an insurance company) referred me to Dr. Gonzalez.
From the first time I saw him and adjusted my bite the pain began to be less. He replaced the gold with porcelain (except for the last molars) and replaced the front plastic like material crowns with porcelain.
First and foremost, what I learned from Dr. Gonzalez and his staff is I was unaware of how important dental care is. My view is he is current with the developments of dental treatment. We need to educate ourselves so as to not feel doctors are trying to sell us what we do not need. We only have one set of permanent teeth so we should try to keep them.
I have been using Dr. Gonzalez for ten years. First my mother was going to him before she moved, then I started, followed by my daughter, and my son. Over the years his practice grew adding two talented doctors who happen to be his daughters. I have had all of them work on my teeth and can honestly say I am lucky to have the best of the best times three.
As far as cost, they have worked with me during hard times and I have received many discounts. I know how expensive dental care is and I have compared against other places and never found them to be excessive.
I for one do not make it a point to follow up on my care or make calls to my dentist for bi-annual cleanings. I usually want to forget the whole thing. Thankfully I have the Gonzalez staff to keep me current with all my care. The follow up calls are not a negative. I know if I don't get back to them, I will get more calls. They care about me enough not to give up.
Another positive is the fact that they are fluent in English and Spanish. For many people a language barrier and be a deterrent when it comes to their health. Thankfully the Gonzalez Dental Practice offers a comfortable option.
