Naomi Lucente, Concord

First time patient here who experienced first class customer service! Everyone there was very helpful, very kind and very patient with me as I suffer from anxiety. They made me feel calm and comfortable at all times. The office is spotless, sanitized often and really a beautiful space. I loved my teeth cleaning session I was numb the whole time and it was quick. What more could you ask for in a dentist. Everyone from the office manager, to the dental hygienist who did my work and Dr. Joey. Everything was perfect! Thank you soooo much for my beautiful teeth!

This is a great team. Confident in their work and always welcoming. My hygienist is amazing, making sure I do my best to have great teeth A clean and calming atmosphere.

Kiara T. , Vallejo

I just recently started going to Healing Hands Dental Group about 6 months ago. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I love my hygienist but unfortunately I can’t remember her name. She is really cool and funny. Another reason I like this office is because among me telling them I no longer had dental insurance, they offered me an opportunity to receive discounted rates for cleanings, exams and X-rays to keep up my healthy smile at a comfortable and affordable price. When I did have insurance, I had previously invested in a deep cleaning at this office due to my lack of dental care over the past 5 or so years and I’m thankful that I can keep up with my routine care even without insurance. I would highly recommend Dr. Joey’s office to anyone that asks!

Marlene B, Martinez

I was there exactly the time for my appointment. I was greeted at the door by the office manager who was wearing a mask. I was too. I was then instructed to read the specifics and was told about how the appointment was going to go and what would take place afterwards. No one was there except me! Everything went off without a hitch. Dentists offices are usually the cleanest anyway as they special care to disinfect. Also no magazines were in the office. I had a good experience.
