    Very personable and helpful ladies at the front. I was nervous because I haven’t gone to the dentist in a while but they made me feel welcome. The exams and procedure were also explained in great detail. So glad I went!

    My initial visit to Dr. Arlene Caringal was on Aug 13 for my x rays and my annual check up/exam. Dr. Arlene Caringal her staff were caring and friendly, from the initial check in at the front desk to exam. I returned to the office for my 2nd appointment for the scaling, polishing, the work was done by another dentist within Dr. Arlene Caringal's office, and it was a good experience as well.

    Their office isn't the most up to date but it looks like they're going through renovations. It was very busy when I came in but I only had to wait 10 mins tops. Everything was done as quickly as possible, at one point there were two hygeniests working together so they went faster. Overall, a very good experience and I would go there again.
