If you are looking for a Dentist that is truely gentle and caring, I would highly recommend Dr. Indah. She is very thorough and knowledgeable. I really appreciated how she explains in good detail what is going on with your gums and teeth. While many Dentists work between a number of patients during your visit, her primary focus is on you.
She also uses the recommended protocols for removing old amalgams. Since mercury is one of metals used in most older fillings (and the most dangerous), her office uses good preventative measures to protect the patient. Orignally I went to her just to remove my old amalgams but in doing I found an excellent dentist. Although I thought my old dentist was good, I found an even better one in Dr. Indah.
I was so impressed with her that I also recommended her to my wife. At first I was hesitant since my wife is typically very afraid of dentist. However, after convincing her to see Dr. Indah, now she is also very glad that she did. We both also appreciate the good people that she has working for her. We especially like Marcia. She too helps you to feel comfortable and at ease.
Its difficult to find a good dentist that you like and trust. My wife and I are really glad that we found Dr. Indah and will be recommending her to all our family and friends!
Like most people, I am extremely scared of going to the dentist. But Dr. Indah has always puts me at ease! She is truly concerned about her patient’s well being, has extremely gentle hands, very knowledgeable, and has a disposition that puts her patient’s at ease. I know that I am in good hands when I see her.
Dr. Indah was the first dentist to ever discover my need for a FOSA TMJ splint. She explained in great detail what my mouth was doing, how that was affecting different areas of my life, what risks it posed and her recommendation to get one. She also asked me if I was getting certain symptoms and I hit all of them, including headaches that I got 2-3 times a week! I never really thought much about my jaw popping every time I ate. I had also become used to a sore jaw in the morning. I thought this was the norm. After getting my splint, no more sore jaw and headaches! I had no idea how much a misaligned jaw can affect your health and well being. Now, I have a new “norm” and that is feeling good!
I highly recommend this Dentist. She is the real deal!
I just got my last amalgam filling replaced with the safest alternative on the market and the nicest most skilled health team I’ve ever experienced! I really maintain that they are all so kind and it didn’t hurt. It was quick, fun and I will always remember them because they helped me regain trust in dentistry and doctors period. They’re doing positive work, and for that I’m forever grateful. I also appreciate their willingness to be flexible with scheduling. I’ve been meaning to get this done for so long. It has been worth the wait, though.
It’s a new office and has a comfy feel to it; the floors kind of remind me of Whole Foods for some strange reason. I even got to watch a movie during a filling, which I hadn’t done before. Having the audio and visual distraction was actually kind of nice.
Dr. Indah takes the time to explain how things work mechanically, and I think she takes more of a holistic approach to dentistry, focusing on how my bite comes together and my tendency to grind my teeth at night to help with some jaw pain. Her custom splint works a lot better than the standard nightguard I’d been wearing for years. I recommended a co-worker to her for some mercury amalgam removal recently too, as I guess she’s one of the few that does it right to minimize her and your exposure to the stuff as it’s removed.
Jennifer the hygienist is pretty nice. I’m one of those hold-the-armrests-til-my-knuckles-turn-white kind of guy when I’m in the chair for cleanings, but she made the experience as pleasant as could be under the circumstances. I should probably send flowers, but I think she’s married. :p
And of course, the important question – how do they handle insurance? Mary at the front desk has done a good job of keeping me from having to do anything with MetLife, which is quite an accomplishment based on past experiences!
I just want people to know what a caring person Dr Indah is. You can see it is a heartfelt profession in the way she treats and cares for her patients. Her quite and serene office and staff put you at ease instantly. The part I liked most, is the way she thoroughly explains each procedure. I recently had to have filling and I’ve got to be honest, it was painless.
