I`d been avoiding the dentist for years due to bad experiences. Then due to a gum infection I had to make an emergency appointment at Medin Dental Clinic. I have been a patient ever since. My dentist is very reassuring and very helpful.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to come to the Loma Linda School of Dentistry. The prices are more than fair and my mouth is already doing much better. Everyone is helpful
I am writing to thank you for solving my recent dental problems. When my dentist retired I was not having any luck in finding a suitable replacement dentist with whom I felt comfortable. Over a period of time, one of my crowns disintegrated and I was very delinquent in taking action to have it replaced. Your took your time to encourage me to visit you and even saw me on a Saturday. I am delighted with the work you carried out, and after a visit to your lovely hygienist Yulli my pearlies are now sparkling again.
I can highly recommend DentCo Dental Clinic after having implants fitted. Adam put me at ease from the outset explaining in great detail but very clearly the work to be undertaken. It’s a lengthy procedure (about a year) but throughout Adam and his team were informative, caring and very professional. I can honestly say that apart from some slight discomfort the day after fitting, I felt no pain at all.
My treatment was wonderful. I had no more than a moment of discomfort, and absolutely no pain. It was most reassuring to overhear comments to by the professors about her proficiency. It felt like we were all on a team together and we were victorious.
I would like to thank you for your remarkable skills over the past few years in truly giving me a ‘smile to last a century’ ! As you know, my teeth could have been in better shape when you first saw them, but the care, skill and patience with which you have dealt with them has been extraordinary – for which I am sincerely grateful! It goes without saying there is no one I would not recommend you to.
I am dental-phobic. This is the BEST dental experience I have ever had

One option to improve the cosmetic look of your smile is to have your metal-coloured fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or `white` fillings. This is a safe procedure that entails one of our dentists removing any decay from your tooth, taking out the metal or amalgam filling and placing a tooth coloured filling instead. The new filling is made from a very hard substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
As dentists we believe prevention is always better than cure and will always encourage and help you to look after your teeth so you don`t develop tooth decay in the first place. If you do have decay and need a filling then we recommend white fillings as a good solution that is both aesthetic and functional.
[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text="Why Dental Fillings Are Important" font_container="tag:h3|text_align:left" use_theme_fonts="yes" rs_decor_place="1" el_class="tt_pt_31 tt_pb_20"][/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text rsclass="clean"]
Patients often experience tooth decay because of inappropriate nutritional habits, poor oral care at home or genetics leading to many cavities. Before creating a treatment plan, the dental professional will extensively review the patient’s medical history and their daily routine in efforts to detect any underlying issues such as medical ailments that may be the reason for exaggerated decay formation. According to collected information, a proper course of treatment is chosen including suitable dental materials most beneficial to the individual needs of each patient.

Although each procedure varies subtly, there are some basic guidelines to treat cavities, and they are followed by all dental professionals.
Filling placement is necessary to treat cavities and prolong the longevity of the natural teeth. With today’s technology continuously improving, new methods are developed to benefit the patients and ensure their positive oral health for a lifetime.

If the cavity isn’t repaired, this cavity will continue to expand—eventually entering into your nerve canal. This can be excruciatingly painful. However, it can also lead to dire problems such as abscess or infection. Replacing old fillings or fixing chipped teeth can also be required. The most important reason to fix your cavity early on is to avoid a painful and costly root canal.

My weight-loss journey has been a typical one where I have battled my weight from my teenage years through adulthood.
Every now and then I would achieve success, but inevitably, the weight came back, and it always came back in a greater amount than I previously weighed. I considered the option of weight-loss surgery for some years, and when I learned about and researched the sleeve gastrectomy surgery, I knew I might have finally found THE tool that could help me achieve a goal that had plagued me for 20-plus years.
Mark Brewer never really worked out and didn't eat healthily, but thought he was fine as long as he didn't weight 300 pounds. However, when he got to the point where he did weigh 325 pounds, he knew something had to change. "That's when it really hit me," he told us. But he didn't quite know where to start in order to make a lasting impact until one of his coworkers recommended getting a Fitbit.
The device and app helped Brewer create a calorie budget and he also started going on daily walks with his wife.
What spurred her to lose weight: her health. Greenwald had always been active and healthy, but as she got older and put on weight, she developed high cholesterol and prediabetes.
But what really galvanized her efforts was seeing a photo: “I went to a wedding in the south of France, and when I looked at the picture of myself, I was mortified,” Greenwald recalls. “I’d never thought of myself as being overweight, but I looked heavy and aged.”
After having her daughter, Janielle Wright failed to lose the baby weight. While she was overweight before her the birth of daughter, she felt that weighing 337 pounds at 5 feet 8 inches tall kept her from being the mother she wanted to be.
Wright started intermittent fasting, where she fasted for 16 hours and ate during eight hours. She also added 30-minute, high-intensity workouts to her routine. Since January, she has lost 105 pounds.
