Testimonial Tuesday Patient Review

I went to Dr. Sanchez with a mess of a mouth. I’m now sporting a new set of dentures (I couldn’t afford implants) that look great! He was sympathetic and caring; not once did he make me feel bad about the condition of my teeth. When the first impressions didn’t work for the lab he custom made a set from wax. Dr Sanchez is caring and gentle with an awesome sense of humor. The entire office staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

I call Dr. Sanchez the Miracle man. He has taken care of any dental concern that I have had with professional excellence, caring, and warm and friendly attitude. His staff Clarissa and Jasmine are equally professional and make you feel like family. They respond quickly to your needs. I would recommend them to anyone.

Everyone is self-conscious about something. The impact it has on one’s life can be damaging. Unfortunately, for many people who wear dentures, the experience is often one of extreme self-consciousness.

In 2015, a US Oral Care Survey (Biting Into Denture Care) revealed the negative impact dentures (also called snap on teeth) have on self confidence for people who wear them. One surprising result of the survey was that 53% of respondents said they received their first set of dentures at the age 44 or even younger. So we are not just talking about the lost confidence of the elderly.

Testimonial Tuesday Patient Review

For the past 14 years, Dr. Sanchez has taken such great care of my problematic teeth. He has also taken care of my four children’s teeth and my husband’s teeth as well. His wealth of knowledge in general dentistry, sedation, implants, orthodontics, and just about anything else you need is very extensive. He’s constantly taking classes to enhance and further his already vast knowledge and continues to provide the best dentistry in Tehachapi and surrounding areas. He and his office staff are pleasant and very caring; I can’t say enough about Dr. Sanchez! He’s wonderful and we will continue to receive excellent dentistry from David for many years to come. Great job, Doc! We love ya!

While dental crowns may not have the luster of the crowns of royalty, they can have a powerful effect on saving your smile. Often when we don’t take proper care of our teeth, they can wear away and lose their strength and shape. There are a number of things that can contribute to tooth decay including skipping regular dental checkups, eating hard candy and not brushing one’s teeth.

Went to Dr. Sanchez through a friends referral even though I already had a dentist in the area. I instantly was made to feel comfortable and relaxed walking in the door. Dr. Sanchez and his awesome staff are caring and personable. They call you by name, say hello, goodbye and take a personal interest in what you have to say. Dr. Sanchez takes time with each patient. I never once had the feeling of being rushed. All my questions were answered. He is considerate and extremely knowledgeable. At my other dentist I was a number. Here I am a person. If you are looking for a competent dentist and staff, I highly recommend Dr. Sanchez.

We depend on our teeth for so many things. Chewing, biting, speaking, smiling, whistling, the list goes on. Despite how well we take care of our teeth with regular brushing and flossing, they can become chipped, cracked, or eventually worn down. Worse yet, tooth decay causes some people to lose their teeth all together. When this happens, the issue isn’t only cosmetic. If the structure of your teeth becomes compromised, it can affect the health of your entire mouth.

Had a minor emergency this morning and the dentist was able to get me in, cement my old implant tooth and get me back on the road. He wasn’t the one that did the original implant but was willing to do the work – which is hard to find by the way. Plus…..he is down to earth, an overall nice guy and family guy. I highly recommend Dr. Sanchez, DDS. You won’t be disappointed.

If you wear dentures, you’re probably well acquainted with the various ways in which they can hamper your freedom of expression and your quality of life. If you received your dentures in the past decade or two, you may have considered and ultimately dismissed dental implants as an option because of the time and cost associated with them.
