"I've been going to West Valley Family Dentist since 2016. The staff is always very helpful with explaining procedures and billing and very friendly. I recently had to go back for a deep cleaning and a filling. The hygienist was very good at explaining what she was doing step by step which helped with my anxiety and was patient and gentle with me. I then saw Dr. Rael and her assistant Marni for my filling and they were on top of everything from making sure I was comfortable during the procedure explaining what to expect to calling the oral surgeon to coordinate what needed to be done further which was a relief to know I was in good hands and felt they actually cared about my concerns! Thank you West Valley Family Dental for making my dentist trip smooth!"- K.B. / Yelp / Jun 06, 2019
