How to find the best general dentistry care in San Francisco


Dental Clinic, General Dentistry San Francisco Selecting the right dentist is an important part of keeping your mouth and body healthy. Not only do you want an individual who is gentle, but you also need someone who will give you the right information and education, is available when the need is urgent, and doesn't keep you sitting in the waiting room. Dr. Leo Arellano works with countless patients in San Francisco, providing a full suite of general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry services. He knows there are several considerations people have when choosing a dental practice, including:

Convenience: Is the office conveniently located and do the hours fit your schedule? Does the office run on time and do patients get the full attention of the dental team?

Friendly, professional team: Are patients welcomed when they join the practice? Does the dentist answer all of your questions? Patients want to feel both comfortable and confident in the care they're receiving.

Educated and skilled: Patients who have a particular dental issue will want to be sure that the dentist has that specific experience. Dr. Arellano suggests asking which services a dentist provides and which treatments are referred to other experts.

Prevention is key. Keeping your mouth healthy is easy and less expensive than treating a problem. Does the dentist take the time to meet with you and carefully examine your teeth during regular checkups? These appointments provide an opportunity to do more than clean your teeth, they also give the dentist a chance to find potential issues, such as a weak area on a tooth, before it becomes a larger problem.

Dr. Arellano is committed to providing a calm environment, gentle care, and a professional team. The team will ensure that their patients' at-home oral care routine is working well and fix anything that causes pain or aesthetic flaws.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
