Dr. Alvarez is extremely competent; and has a confident manner that is very reassuring. His facilities are completely modern, his staff are friendly and professional, and the quality of his work is the best. I waited six months to change my insurance plan just so I could switch to using him as my dentist after he correctly diagnosed problems I was having that my previous dentist had misdiagnosed. He has installed one crown for me so far (on an implant), and will be installing two others and replacing a filling later this summer. I have complete confidence in him, and would recommend him to anyone.
