I love Dr. Frade's office. He is the best dentist I have ever had. His entire staff contains top notch professionals that know how to make their patients feel at ease.
My daughter recently had her wisdom teeth pulled and was amazed at how fast she healed with very little discomfort. Dr. Frade made every effort to insure that she would be comfortable throughout all phases of her procedure.
Cathy D.(United States )Jan 2017Procedure: Dental implant
My first time to see Dr. Frade. Very friendly office! I had my first implant done and was a bit nervous. Dr. Frade made me feel very comfortable as well as the hygenist. They made sure I had no discomfort at all. Aside from the state-of-the-art equipment he is obviously highly skilled in implants as the procedure was fast and I felt no pain whatsoever. If you are considering an implant, I highly recommend Dr. Frade!

Best dentist I have ever had. Your appointment starts on time, they are friendly with out being "bank teller" fake friendly. I'll still never get excited about going to the dentist, but at least Dr. Frade and his staff make it as pleasant, quick and painless as possible.

Bre C.(United States )Jan 2017Procedure: Dental implant
I first heard about them when i purchased a teeth whitening coupon.
I have been at this office for about a year now, I had a deep cleaning done some follow up cleanings and just recently got my wisdom teeth pulled.
I was terrified to get my wisdom teeth pulled when I found out they were not going to put me to sleep. However, the staff was so accomdating and so relaxed and confident that i felt relaxed and reassured. No matter the procedure Dr. Frade is always gentle, in giving the shots and he always assures that I am comfortable and not feeling any pain. His assistant (sorry I didnt catch her name) adjusted the laughing gas to my comfort zone constantly and made sure that i was comfortable. The procedure took about 2 hours and it was difficult because i have strong roots so instead of pulling all 4 we only did 3 (we decided I had had enough). The pain was not unbearable mainly just tugging and pulling, however by the time we got to the 3rd one the numbing was wearing off and i had just had enough.

Fear of fillings? Afraid of abscesses? Nervous about Novocaine? Dr. Frade puts you at ease!
I haven't been to the dentist in years because I hate going to the dentist -- but Dr. Frade was highly recommended by a friend so I coaxed myself back in.
The burbling fountain at the entrance and the gorgeous lighting and decor in the office totally set me at ease.
CJ R.(United States )Jan 2017Procedure: Dental implant
We met Dr. Frade and the staff years ago and wouldn't go anywhere else. My children LOVE going to the dentist and so do my husband and I.
The office is clean and current while the staff is kind and professional. They make you feel like family and put your oral health as their top priority. They are personable and honest and I greatly appreciate that. Many dentists I've encountered in the past have tried to recommend work I didn't need. You won't get that pressure with Dr. Frade. Dr Frade and his staff treats every patient uniquely. Lou the Office Manager is patient and very helpful not to mention great at what she does. Gladys is very skilled and thorough with her work as well as nice. All the staff ROCKS!
David P.(United States )Jan 2017Procedure: Dental implant
Dr. Frade was suggested to me by a friend. I needed a crown and the dentist I had been using seemed to be a bit overpriced. I was looking for a dentist who would charge fairly and be competent.
There is nothing to say but compliments. The work was done well and the cost was reasonable. The staff, both Lou, the receptionist and the hygienist who has been cleaning my teeth ever since, are competent and professional.
Ichiban H.(United States )Jan 2017Procedure: Dental implant
Got an implant from Alex about five months ago. The whole procedure was painless and so far so good, my new molar can, grind, chew and chomp as good as the one my DNA fashioned years ago. And if you need a dog sitter during the appointment there is a groomer just down the road.. so if your pooch needs a bath you can kill two birds with one stone.

Best Dds experience ever !! The office manager Lu, is super nice and helpful.

The All-on-4 treatment concept is a prosthodontic procedure that provides a permanent, screw-retained, same-day replacement for the entire upper and / or lower set of teeth with a bridge or denture. The procedure is best for patients with significant tooth loss or decay and for people whose bone loss in the jaw area prevents them from getting conventionally oriented (vertical) dental implants.Learn more about All on 4
