It was a long appointment to fill 3 cavities and put sealant on 3 teeth but Dr. Carliza and Gloria made me as comfortable as possible. I appreciated seeing the before and after photos in progress as it made me feel engaged in the process. I was most afraid of the injection of the numbing agent but that went pretty well (Dr. Carliza starts with topical lidocaine to numb the skin and then jiggles the area during injection to reduce the pain of injection). I really felt that Dr. Carliza was concerned about my recovering well -- there was lots of post-op advice, a follow-up phone call, etc.
PS: On a previous cavity fill, with a different dentist, I had lingering jaw pain from the injection for a month! So glad not a problem with Dr. Carliza.
