  1. I would like to comment on regards to Dr. Ponce . In my opinion he is second to none. I am a 48 year old female with a dentist phobia resulting in rotten teeth. GABE took the time to explain every procedure and kept checking in to assure i was pain free. I went from a lady that never went to the dentist to a lady that was going once a week for a few months! And for the first time I can actually smile and show my teeth and have him to thank In my opinion he is the best of the best and I am honored to recommend him to anyone and feel confident they will not be disappointed
    Thanks for your time Lori Gatecliff
