Their smile is the first thing you notice when you meet someone… That’s why cosmetic dentistry became my focus. It allows me to boost patients’ self-confidence. When they achieve a healthy, beautiful smile, the change is not only physical.
Dr. Mansillia has been our family dentist for over 8 years. The office has handled everything from routine cleanings, to emergency cosmetic repair on our sons front teeth, also the billing that goes along with it. Very thankful for her expertise. Having had hours of dental work as a child , it is now time to replace and repair all that old work. I am thankful for her honesty, I thank you for her diligence, but most of all I’m thankful for her quality of work. Every visit reduces the anxiety that I feel about the dentist. Dr. Mansilla always makes sure that I am comfortable and not feeling any pain. Even on a stressed-out, emergency drop-in filled day they will find a minute to laugh and smile.
