Was EXTREMELY IMPRESSED with Dr. Bocanegra and staff. In some cases where patients do not like to go to the dentist due to anxiety, fear can keep you away of yearly exams. My case, had an unpleasant dentist visit a year ago thus afraid of going, put everything off in scheduling an appointment. Did not know who to go to, went on Angie's List requesting the 5 best dentist in the Ft. Myers, Fl area and Dr. Bocanegra name popped up. His name kept me intrigued thus read about his office...IMPRESSED. I had to see someone as I had a broken tooth, called made appointment right away....Receptionist very professional, kind and understanding of my situation...Day of appointment, waiting in the lobby area I noticed how calm I was, I thought WOW this has never happened. The office atmosphere was pleasant. Saw Dr. Bocanegra, IMPRESSED with his overall stature of a kind, pleasant, understanding doctor who in explaining to me my x-rays, and the treatment plan he recommended for me. I felt this Dr. was an honest man and I felt comfortable in talking with him. From the time I walked in to the time I left, I honestly can say, I was EXTREMELY IMPRESSED with the office, Dr., and staff, a very calming, pleasant experience. I have found my dentist.
Dr. Bocanegra (Ricky) has been our family dentist for over 25 yrs he is totally open and honest with you and he cares he gets to know you before and after any visits and he is really good at what he does he is not just our dentist he is our friend
In my 79 years, I have never written a review of anything - product or professional service. However, after my dental history in Fort Myers beginning in 1994, I feel obligated to provide a review of this wonderful and caring dental facility which I highly recommend to others. Brief history: after a couple of decades with a good dentist, I was put in a position (without going into details) of having to accept invasive dental treatment or leave. At my age then (well over mid-70s) plus medical reasons, I wanted no part of invasive surgery. I then spent a period of time going to at least five different dentist/dental firms and got a variety of suggestions only one of which made any sense, but was priced in the stratosphere. After these experiences, I found I needed repair work on one of my partial dentures and through the internet I went to a lab for the work and found myself in a place called Porto Fino Dental - which I had found by luck - luck that this dental firm had a full lab on the premises. I knew a short time later that I had found my new dental home. First contact with the staff was very positive - they're wonderful sensitive and caring people. While I was deliberating my repair issue, Dr. Bocanegra asked if he could check out my dental situation. While doing so and asking me questions, he came up with a solution on the spot that did NOT involve invasive dental surgery. Dr. Bocanegra and a couple of staff who have helped me over the last year and a half always listened to me to see what was important to me. This wonderful dentist didn't look at me with preconceived plans, but rather adapted and thought through my situation for which I am very grateful. And I should add they have reasonable prices. They continue to work with me if and when an adjustment might be needed. The staff and Dr. Bocanegra make me feel at home when I come in. In this day and age, that is a huge plus! I highly recommend Porto Fino Dental.
