If you can love going to Dentist THIS is the one to go to!! Spotless office, professional, great staff, always accommodating and polite! After all these years I finally found the ONE, thanks to my dear friend that referred me to him!!

Lynn Manansala

We love Dr Lobato and his staff! Our son was 3 years old when we starting going to his office (he'll soon be 24). As someone who has always had a fear of going to the dentist, Dr Lobato and his staff have always been mindful of my fear. They are always so patient with me and explain things thoroughly so that there's never any surprises. They have always shown concern about our family's well being and have never suggested unnecessary treatments/procedures. Kris, the dental hygienist, is also great, probably the best I've ever seen.
