Very dissiapointed will not go back..
My appointment was for 10:30. I was not seen until 11:18. The new hygienist immediately informed me that I needed a deep cleaning and a mouth guard. The dental assistant took a full set of X-rays. I was left alone for at least 40 minutes until the new dentist came in to do an oral exam. The dentist seemed unsure of himself as well as his English was very poor. I was informed by Dr. Lu that I needed a lot of dental work done. I told the dental assistant that I did not want the $600.00 deep cleaning and that I needed to be on way. I was told the hygienist would be in shortly to do the teeth cleaning which never happened. I had to leave finally by noon. I was told to come back at 3:30 for teeth cleaning. I arrived at 3;25 only to have to wait until 4:30. I was taken in a room after a few minutes the dental assistant came in put on gloves telling me he would polish my teeth. I informed him I there for a cleaning. He told me due to my refusal for the $600.00 deep cleaning they would only polish my teeth. I got up, took off the bib and told the whole office staff that I had been having my teeth cleaned for years at my prior dentist and I knew what a teeth cleaning was and a polish only is NOT teeth cleaning. I was told a polish is teeth cleaning by the front office staff. I will never go back to this dental office. They make you wait way over your appointment time, and it seems to me everyone is told they need a deep cleaning and mouth guard among other dental needs. They quote a price and then when you say no, they come up with a lower one. Dr. Lu had his shoes untied and he had a dirty white smock on with a blacked out name on it. The hygienist uniform was dirty as well. The office staff is nice and the dental assistant was nice also. It is a money pit practice.. Wish Dr. Jo had not left. I will never return to this office. Do not waist your time and money at this office. I think the patients money is their first and only concern. Any hygienist who feels a POLISH is all that's needed to clean a patients teeth is WRONG.

Waste of time
I totally agree with T.R.'s review. Alyssa used to do a thorough cleaning. For my visit today I was seen by 3 different hygienists/assistants plus the dentist. I was told I needed a pricey "surgery" to deep clean 3 areas. When I declined and asked for regular routine cleaning, I received a polishing of one side teeth that's it. Lost my family's business.

My visit at Alta Loma dental was pleasant. I found out Dr Jo left she was excellent & I will miss her;however Dr Lu was very knowledgeable & explain everything in detail. His assistant Ernie was also friendly & so was the staff. I will continue to keep them as my dentist. I would recommend them to my family & friends.

5 Star to 1 Star
This office was really excellent until this last visit. Dr. Jo and my Hygienist Alyssa are both gone now. The office did not notify me before my visit. The new Hygienist did not review my file before meeting with me and offered me a total different diagnosis then Dr. Jo and Alyssa. Not sure who to believe at this point. I wound up with just a teeth cleaning that was done by an unknown assistant other than the new Hygienist. Unfortunately, I will be moving on to a new office. If anyone knows where Dr. Jo and Alyssa now work at please post. They were an excellent combination. All the reasons that I went to this office are now gone. Too bad.

Alta Loma Dental Great Dentist and Staff
I just recently had a mouth guard made and it is the first one that has ever fit comfortably. I will actually use this one! The dentist and the technicians are very kind and explain everything and the staff is very friendly too. You never have to wait too long there as well. They always have been on schedule for me.

6 month cleaning
I was a bit disappointed that both my previous dentist and hygenist were no longer with Alta but although the hygenist was quite new at it , and the dental assistant was his first day, they did an adequate job. When I signed in I was told I was having xrays, and the cleaning.....which I signed for the service When I paid my copay I told the receptionist we did not do xrays so I hope they did not send that into the insurance as I will have them in February/March. Anyhow, it was satisfactory although it took longer than usual. New dentist appears competent but as I had not real service except the measurement and for him to look at my February Xrays I cannot comment on his abilities. We had originally came to Alta for the dentist who was there but since being with them they have changed dentists three times.

Office visit was great. No quote when promised.
My experience at the dental office was great. Some one was suppose to send me a quote the same day and I never received it. I called no answer just went to answer machine.

Best Dental Service I've had in 30 years!
I needed an emergency appointment today, I called first thing this morning and was able to get in late this afternoon. Everyone I spoke to and saw was kind, and professional! I will be returning to this office, and recommending this office to anyone who asks for a dentist! I appreciate the advice that I was given, and feel confident in the care and treatment as well. Thank you so much for making me feel that I can finally be comfortable going to the dentist again. I look forward to having healthy teeth once again!
