Dr. Blaess has been my dentist for over 2 years. I have 12 veneers and a root canal done by Dr. Blaess. The veneers are so good that no one can tell that I have ever had any dental work done. I get compliments on my teeth and I'm not embarrassed to smile any more. The work was painless while it was done and painless when I got home. Dr Blaess is an amazing doctor and her staff is fabulous.
I feel like Dr. Blaess really saved me.
I do recommend Dr. Blaess!
Wonderful Staff – Dr Blaess is wonderful and her staff very caring. I am a big coward about dental procedures... have needed gas even for cleanings. During the initial visit, they did everything to make me comfortable. They were not so accomodating during the following visits, apparently believing that speed would relieve the need for other anthing else. My treatment took several visits and by the last one, I was again really dreading going. Even though I know I have other dental issues, I am not significantly less reluctant to return. They need to be consistent with offering the "comfort" items, i.e., the lap robe, sunglasses, music headset and yes, drugs if necessary.
It was super easy to get an appointment that would fit my schedule and the wait, both in the waiting area and in the back in the chair were blessedly brief.
Their billing procedure is also kind of confusing. I ultimately received 2 bills, 4 days apart, with 2 different amounts covering some of the same procedures and dates. When I called the office to find out the true total, it turned out to be a different amount. I was told that probably one bill came from the clearinghouse and one from the office.
Never Going Back! – I went in for pain on one side of my mouth. They never X-rayed me and gave me a crown. In 3 days I had a huge abscess. They gave me antibiotics after antibiotics. Dr. . Irene Blaess is not very empathetic. She doesn’t explain to you the procedures or side effects. I never met a medical professional like her. The best advice I can give you is to RUN if you get Dr. Blaess. Dr. Reyes seems nice though.
Phenomenal Dentist – A coworker recommended Dr. Blaess to me about three years ago. Dr. Blaess found some plaque buildup in between my teeth and the early stages of gum disease. She suggested I use a rotadent toothbrush and to floss every evening, which I have been doing for the past three years. Now, I am no longer showing any signs of gum disease and my teeth look and feel great, and Dr. Blaess is a huge part of that success. She is the best dentist I have ever encountered and I highly recommend her.
Absolute Pleasure – Dr. Blaess and her staff have been an absolute pleasure to visit. I had anxiety about going to the dentist and put it off for a while. I needed to get a crown and couldn't put it off any more. Dr Blaess not only did an excellent job with my crown, but the whole experience was pleasant and very professional. I highly recommend De Zavala Dental to anyone who is looking for a dentist, and for people like myself who put off the dentist and need to visit one.
Great Experience – I had a great experience with Dr. Blaess. I am a 34 year old who was embarrassed to laugh out loud with my teeth showing. I finished my treatment in 10 months, I have the perfect smile. Additionally, the staff is great and I never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen. I recommend De Zavala Dental.
Caring Professional – I read the previous review and I can not understand the negativity contained in it. For some reason, this individual has an axe to grind.
I have had many bad experiences with dentists through out my life. If it weren't for the professional and caring manner of Dr. Blasse and her entire staff, I wouldn't be pursuing the dental care I so desparately need.
This past Tuesday morning I had called the clinic in pain. They were able to see me in less then an hour.
Dr. Blasse examined me right away. She indicated that the tooth could be saved and that a root canel would need to be done.
She was very diligent in her exam and discussion with me about my other contributing dental problems.
It was only because of her caring and professional manner and being sensitive of my needs,
that I am able to accept a flexible treatment plan that will address the immediate situation and my other problems that until now I had chosen to ignore.
I have had the root canel and her work is just great. I was not afraid or in pain. Her casual confident manner made me feel at ease. If you're considering going to a dentist, take my word, you will not find a more professional, friendly dentist than Dr. Blasse.
Dr. Blaess is awful – I made an appointment for a check up for the 1st time at this office. Then I came into the office 2 weeks later. My appointment was at 7:00AM in the morning. Dr. Blaess arrived at 7:45AM. She did not apologize for being late. She said why don't you sit in the chair, and I will be back. She went to get coffee and came back about 15 minutes later. Again not taking into consideration that it was already almost 8:00AM. I was in the office for almost an hour and nothing has been done to me yet. Then she asked me why I was there. I told her I came in for a check up. I said I have not been to a dentist for a long time. She told me I will need to take x-rays. Someone else took me to take my x-rays. When I came back Dr. Blaess told me to sit back in the chair. When I sat down, she decided to take her shoes off. I looked at her, but she didn't say anything. When she took her shoes off, it was one of the worst smells that I have ever experienced. It was like being in a barn with a pig. It was just disgusting and awful. I thought I was going to be sick. By the time she started looking into my mouth, I could barely keep my mouth open because of this awful odor coming from her feet. However, I could not say anything.
One Caring Dentist – I originally came in with a pain in my tooth thinking it was a cavity, only to find out it was a cracked tooth. My dentist was very sensitive to the fact that I had previously had unpleasant dental experiences and explained everything to me before starting anything as well as checking back. Additionally, she was extremely gentle and sensitive to the pain I was in and diligent and working towards solving the problem.
DeZavala Dental--Simply 'the' Best! – It's awesome to actually look forward to going to the dentist. Dr. Blaess and the entire staff take such good care of my husband and me. Whether it's for teeth whitening, cleanings, check-ups, braces, nightguards, mouthguards, or anything in between, we trust DeZavala Dental!
