If you need an implant, I highly recommend Vela Dental! I had my implant placed in May of 2013. The placing of the titanium screw (implant) was quick (less than 10 minutes) and PAINLESS. I was skeptical that the painkiller shorts were going to be enough (because I am sli...moreghtly resistant to them), but I didn't feel anything but a bit of pressure while the implant was drilled in. Dr. Ben Vela not only gave me plenty of the anesthetic injections, but waited till they fully kicked in (he didn't rush). Afterwards, they checked me in 2 weeks time. By that time, my gum felt completely healed. A few weeks later, they just switched out one of my healing caps (the part that fits over the implants for protection until the permanent crown is placed.) No injectable anesthetic was needed,but there was a slight pinching pain as the new screw was tightened against the gum. If you are squeamish or high anxiety, I recommend asking for the injection. :) After another 4 weeks, they took some molds of my upper and lower teeth to send to the lab to make my implant. (It takes about a month for the lab to make and send your crown back to the dentist). The last part, placing the crown, was as short and sweet as when he drilled in the implant during phase 1. Just a little shaving off of the crown and the tooth that touched the crown (one of the upper molar in my case) was all that was required. ------ There is a 5 year warranty with the crown, as long as you come in for a cleaning every 6 months. In addition, Vela Dental uses a cool CT scan machine prior to the implant process to make sure the placement is just right. This gives him a 3D picture of your teeth. Don't worry about the pain. I am a big baby, but only needed the codein-containing pain pills he gave me for the first evening. After that, I merely took Motrin 800 for a few days to control the swelling. I am so glad to have my awesome implant! Sincerely, SSMview less

I have told many about this place and they also recommend to others. Its crazy how word of mouth works. of course u have to see or try to believe. my family and i always said that diet supplements only work for time that its being taken and u gain it back or two times more. ...morei tried it for the first time ever and guess what i lost 20lbs in one month, appetite suppressant really works my fmily didnt know i was using this and would get upset cuz they nvr saw me eat well guess what when i told them. they were so shocked and couldnt believe it after that month i stopped pills and continued on my own. they noticed that i hadnt gain more or double the weight but that i continued to loose and changed my eating habits so stayed fit. they finally came out of their shell and asked me how or what they have to do to join. JUST CALL AND SCHEDULE APPT. they r now loosing weight themselves, its awesome that they love it as much as i do!!!!!!! :)view less
I have to say, I've always been a little terrified about visiting the dentist, but visiting Dr. Chang's Dental office has really put me at ease! At my first appointment, I was blown away with the kind, knowledgeable, and overwhelmingly sincere staff! The dental assistant imm...moreediately made me feel comfortable and the dental work I had done by Dr. Chang not only looks great, but was done so skillfully that I am no longer having sensitivity when I bite. If I could have given Dr. Chang's Family Dentistry more stars, I definitely would have!! I recently visited Dr. Chang's office for the second time and I have to say that Dr. Chang and his office staff use the latest technology, they are absolutely professional and they were willing to work around my schedule and accommodate my needs. If you are looking for a dentist, Dr. Chang is the one to visit! To be honest, I wish I would have switched to him sooner.view less
