My name is Constance,and I am Canadian. I have had years of pain,suffering and
unprofessional service from a few canadian dentists. Expensive treatments that just never
seemed to help, I was at the point that implants were my only option. I spent most days in the
house not going anywhere,as my denture was so ill fitting and painful to wear,that I avoided
wearing it to go anywhere.
After much consideration I chose to have my dentistry done at Dr. Octavio's clinic.
It truly was the best thing I have ever done! From start to finish, the staff and Dr. Octavio were
understanding, professional and enthusiastic about my treatment. They put a plan in place, to
have the implants done as well as an added root canal, crown replacement,and complete new
upper partial plate.
Immediately after my implant surgery, and for the full week of healing, there was NO pain at
all! Here I have 4 metal screws in my lower jaw, and it doesn't hurt? Now that's a surprise!
I would recommend Dental Avant Garde to anyone, from basic dentistry to difficult cases.
The Canadian system is far too costly for most of us to even think about this much work!
This clinic is truly a blessing!
Thank you to everyone at Dental Avant Garde, and a special thanks to Dr Octavio for giving me
back my smile!
Yesterday I had a crown put on by Dr. Adrian Octavio Lomelli, an expert on TMJ and
prosthetics. His is the most high tech, efficient, and human dentist's office I have ever seen.
Full of sculpture and art, the spacious facilities were equipped with instant computer
generated imaging machines, which render the old X-ray obsolete. I was invited to watch as a
grinding machine made my crown in about fifteen minutes. An older man with a world of
experience, he treated his young assistants as equals throughout the process. The whole crew
seems very happy, and when the doctor wasn't singing, the tech guy was. I'm not sure why this
reduced the pain and stress of the experience by about half, but it did. It cost five hundred
dollars and was over in a matter of hours. Compared with the estimate I got at a California
dentist of a six month process costing nearly five grand, and including root canals and
retainers... well, I'm not sure they're worth comparing. It was all explained so clearly and
intelligently that I felt completely at ease the whole time.

I just wanted to extend my compliments to Dr. Lomeli's office. I was there
recently for a cleaning and to have a small cavity taken care of. The office is as
modern, professional, and well equiped as any I've seen in the US. I have been
going to Dr. Lomeli for three years and I think it has continued to improve over
that time. This time, Dra Erika cleaned my teeth and two days later, Dra Frida
filled the small cavity, making the tooth look better than it has in years. Both are
knowledgeable in their field, professional, personable, and speak excellent
English. Dr. Lomeli can be proud of his office and the staff he has assembled.
Dr. Octavio Lomeli was wonderful. Very nice man and the rest of the staff were extremely professional. My surprise came when having gone on the Monday, that my teeth would be ready by Thursday! OMG, that would never happen in Canada, I think. Many , many thanks.
