Dale Herrero and Jill Martenson
There are two Dentists in Piedmont that I would trust w/ my life! The office name is Piedmont Dental by Design, the dentists are Dr. Dale Herrero & Dr. Jill Martenson. Two of the most brilliant, gentle & artistic dentists I've ever seen. I have two friends that are also patients there, one had a full mouth reconstruction done by Dr. Herrero including dental implants porcelain veneers. Dr. Herrero has apparently been placing implants for over 30 years, was one of the first in this area to start placing them. He is a fellow & honored member of the top implant groups in the country! I've seen his surgical set-up and I swear, he is more sterile than a hospital! what a genius! Dr. Martensen also does implant work & placed a few on my husband (which we've had absolutely Zero problems w/) I was most impressed by a smile she gave another good friend of mine who recently appeared on the home & garden channel. What a difference. People who were naturally blessed w/ beautiful smiles just don't realize what a difference it can make! Here is a link to their website & telephone #. www.hmdds.com 510-652-2911 Anyone who is looking for beautiful cosmetic work, implants or has any type of dental phobia would be a fool to go anywhere else
Re: Hygienist (Sensitive teeth - prone to bleeding) (Jan 2006)
My husband and I have been going to Dr. Jill Martenson's office in Piedmont where we've both had very thorough and gentle cleanings. In general, the treatment we get there has been nothing short of excellent! I wholeheartedly recommend going there.
It's not cheap, but I have gone to numerous hygienists/dentists in New York City, and the Bay Area, and so far, this is one of the best practices I've encountered. With such sensitve gums, I would almost encourage your husband to seek dental consultation. (not to say that there's something wrong for sure)
In our experience, the cleanings are so thorough, they take digital pictures before and after the cleaning to show you what work they've done to remove plaque and for appropriate cleaning!
I give her practice a A++! Never before have I seen a dental office where the staff is so available and willing to help.
