  • My experience here has been nothing but excellent and wonderful service. Upon entering I have been greeted with smiling faces from Sandra and Tricia. Dr. Herrera sat down with me and showed true compassion as well as honesty for my teeth health. I did not feel pressured in any form about how my teeth should be treated. Shannon performed an amazing job cleaning my teeth and conversated with me to make me feel comfortable. I need to also detail how gentle she was when flossing; she adjusted her motions when flossing my teeth to make sure the floss string does not impact the gumline as hard. That’s incredible. Everybody was so kind and courteous. Thank ya so much everyone.

  • I can’t say enough good things about Ideal Dental in HV–I went in today with a broken crown and my health benefits run out this week. They worked me in so that it would be covered by my insurance. It’s been a long time since I have experienced that level of kindness and compassion in a medical setting. Sandra and Reyna were both so sweet to me, and Dr. Herrera has a wonderful bedside manner. I will be recommending them to everyone!

  • The staff was extremely sweet and patient. I’m Pregnant and they took care of me and made sure they had permission from my OBGYN to make sure I was able to get treated. Dr. Herrera is very thorough with explaining the procedure and making sure you understand what is going on. He’s professional, cool, and helpful! And fast too! They give you a tour of the office as soon as your about to get called in and make you feel welcomed.

  • I was in from out of town and managed to chip my tooth on a Friday night. I was hysterical especially because it was a front tooth. I found Ideal Dental from Siri and that they were open on Saturday. My flight back home to Georgia was still 2 days away. I called the emergency number and received a call back within the hour. They told me to come in first thing Saturday and they would work me in. I was willing to wait as long as it took. Upon arrival I was greeted in a friendly manner and lots of compassion. The Doctor and staff were outstanding, the office was modern and exceptionally clean. Dr H patched up my tooth to the exact color and when he showed me his work in the mirror I wanted to cry. I was back to normal and no one would ever know! i couldn’t thank them enough and was so very grateful. They even got my insurance approved to cover some of the cost. When we relocate next year to the area there is no doubt that this will be my dentist. That says a lot because I have had the same dentist in Georgia for 20 years and was afraid i wouldn’t be able to match him.
