PROS: Great experience. Friendly staff. On time. Clean. MUHAMMAD AWAN made sure I was comfortable. I’ve been back several times and he has always been very clear if there is a charge BEFORE he does anything. My FAVORITE part is that he doesn’t feel like a salesman that happens to clean teeth! I am satisfied enough that I recommend Muhammad to my own mother. CON: Weird parking lot. Everyone drives around looking for building numbers and not where they’re driving.

My mother was in a care facility that lost her teeth. The staff at Coast Dental got her in and a new set of dentures that fit her wonderfully. There were a couple of hiccups with the lab but the staff found the issue fast and resolved the problem expediently and efficiently. Five stars is not enough.

Dr Prescott and Anna were awesome. I had 2 crowns done and it was absolutely painless. This is coming from someone that is extremely nervous in the chair. It was a very good experience.
