Possibly My Best Dental Experience EVER
I required two replacement fillings for my back lower molars; old fillings and cracks that eventually would lead to breakage and probably loss of those molars. I expected it to be a difficult experience because of location and the usual pain associated with the needle during and after not to mention the drilling. I had been fore-warned that he was excellent so I was fairly relaxed when I sat in his chair and reaffirmed by Laura, his most excellent assistant, that it would be 'Okay'. Deep sigh, Okay, I trust her....... No pain from the injection though the usual slight yukky taste of the Novocain. I asked that Dr. Lam & Laura communicate with me as they went along as to know what was happening so that I could do my best to assist; both to help them and, of course, make it easier for me; I want to know what your doing in my mouth as you do it because this is a 'relationship'. I really don't like it when medical people do not tell you what is going on; it's just not them but I am here too in this 'exercise' and I am the one being worked on.. For the most part they did this though sometimes hard to hear them through there masks. I knew pretty much what they were doing through both 'tooth filling' procedures; they worked quick as possible with both molars. After the insertion of the filling material, there was very little 'sanding' to adjust the bite; Dr. Lam had estimated the right amount of 'goop' to fill the cavity so we didn't have to go through long adjustments. Bottom line: Virtually no pain; the drill wasn't the usual high pitched, "OMG, this really sucks!!! sound, and, now about four hours later, as I write this, there is no injection pain. This is usually a problem solved with Tylenol. Yeah, I know I had a procedure but it's so mild, I don't really notice it unless I think about it. I have experienced some really difficult dental visits over my life. I went for years before I would EVER sit in a dentist chair again. This office saved my teeth, and though I don't enjoy the dentist office, if you want to live long, keep your teeth, PLEASE, you must stay on top of your dental work. Cleanings, fillings, etc.... The sooner you start, the better. Would I recommend Dr. Lam his wonderful staff? ABSOLUTELY!

I really appreciate how Dr. Lam and Laura handle patients that have anxiety (LIKE ME)! They take their time and are cognizant of body language.

Not Dr. Coleman's work ethic anymore
Dr. Coleman retired and there is a new dentist. You'll be ripped-off by unscrupulous people who are only after your money.They don't care about your teeth or any other health implications. I was there to get a dental cleaning and was charged triple because they decided to take some unnecessary X-rays without telling me those are charged separately. I will never go there again. I would give them 0 stars but unfortunately I can't. If you value your health, stay away from that place.

Outstanding professional group of people
Superb service from friendly, capable staff. Doc Lam is new at the office and is such a nice man with very warm caring style. Advanced dentistry is mastered here with amazing results on amalgam replacement on cracked teeth and old crowns with inlays and onlays. My teeth look natural and the process was a one day visit. I am thrilled to be a client. I will be a customer for life.

They truly care about the longevity of your hygiene and over all health. My best to Dr. Coleman and his wife. May they enjoy the retirement life.

Dr lam is patient. He asks me if I’m ready for him to fill my cavity. Also ask me if I was ok during the procedure. I don’t feel there was rush to getting the work done. There no pain when my teeth were numb. He is friendly and made me feel comfortable. His assistant is great as well.

New tooth after a crown was placed.
Dr Lam did a wonderful job of removing a very large old filling. He replaced it with an inlay/crown because there was such little tooth remaining. Dr Lam and his very professional assistant made me comfortable, giving me a blanket, short breaks, and great care.The anesthesia was so easy and helped the event not be painful. The crown fit with very little adjustment all in the same visit. I can't tell that my tooth was ever in such a bad state. It feels great and natural, eating is comfortable. Thanks Dr Lam for calling to check up on me. I'm great!
