Real Patient Testimonials
Over the holidays, my brother’s dog and I had a mid-air collision, chipping 2 of my front teeth. Of course, chipping very visual teeth is traumatic. In my opinion, finding a dental expert was crucial. When I called your office yesterday, you got me in within a few hours and did a fantastic job. My smile is back and better than before. Thank you so much!!!!
When I was asked to provide a testimonial I was more than happy to express my complete confidence in Dr. Calvo as my dentist.
Through the years I have watched Dr. Calvo strive to be the best she can be by taking class, after class and continuing her education in the field of dentistry. She has years of experience, which gives me a sense of comfort that she really knows what she is doing.
However, I have known Dr. Calvo for 14 years and she is much more than a dentist to my family and I. When I say family it’s pretty much my entire family from my husband to my four year old son, my sister, mother, in laws and friends. This speaks of Dr. Calvo’s character of being kind, compassionate, gentle and knowledgeable in her field. Dr. Calvo and her staff are great and will always make you feel at home.
I would highly recommend Dr. Calvo as your life long dentist. Once you’ve experienced Dr. Calvo and her staff you will keep coming back for more!
Lucky me to have Dr. Calvo in my world! I grew up in New York City with money, and my mom made sure we had the best dental care. Dr. Calvo outshines all those dentists!
She’s in a class all by herself, above them all. Every filling, every crown, is a true work of art. She cares about my dental health and my homecare. I can’t believe how blessed I am to have her as my dentist.
What a glorious staff she has! It’s a joy to be in their presence. Everyone in Dr Calvo’s office is most professional, most highly skilled and most caring to Nth degree.
Dr. Calvo and her staff actually make it pleasant to go to the dentist. Everyone there is kind and considerate. Dr. Calvo has all the most up-to-date equipment and works in a very sanitary way that makes me feel comfortable and secure. Due to insurance coverage, I actually strayed for a short while but it was such a horrible experience that I discovered it's well worth it to pay a little extra and get the excellent care that Dr. Calvo and her staff provide. Finally, although I truly like her staff, I appreciate that Dr. Calvo is very hands-on with the work that needs to be done.
I know that I will never change dentists as long as I live in Los Angeles and can see Dr. Calvo.
As an adult I have always been afraid of the dentist due to one bad experience after another. My fears were finally put to rest when I went to Dr. Calvo's office. Dr. Calvo and her staff were so gentle and went out of their way to make my appointment as comfortable as possible. Not to mention Dr. Calvo knows her stuff. Everything from the health of my teeth to what procedures I would have done were explained in detail. I would recommend this office everyone I know and I do. –
My entire adult life I have been conscious of my tetracycline stained teeth. After 20 years of trying various, sometimes painful, procedures with poor results, I realized that my teeth, and self-esteem were not things I should be looking for the lowest cost options. After doing some exhausted research I determined two things. The first was that if you want to improve the appearance of your cosmetic appearance smile, you should go to a cosmetic dentist who specializes in this type of work, the second was that veneers was the procedure that would finally give me the results I desired. After interviewing several dentists, and getting estimates, I decided on Dr. Calvo. She had the best credentials (she's on the board for certifying cosmetic dentists) and had plenty of before and after pictures of her work. She and her staff made me immediately comfortable. I had seventeen teeth veneered and loved them. Dr. Calvo is truly an artist. She and her staff worked hard at keeping me comfortable during a long and uncomfortable process. Throughout the procedure Dr. Calvo explained every step and made sure I was comfortable at all times. Dr. Calvo can takes pride in her work and if she does not like the results at any step of the process, she reworks it to meet her high standards. I highly recommend Dr. Calvo for anyone whose smile and self-esteem is as important to him or her as it was to me. –
Dr. Calvo has done my cleanings, inlays, restorations and veneers over the past 14 years and if I could find anyone better I would be surprised. Her staff is incredibly friendly, courteous and professional, and her practice is run the way I would want to run my business. I cannot give a higher recommendation. –
My phone didn't let me finish my praise of Dr Calvo. She came in this morning to take care of my temporary bridge. I broke it last night. It was her day off.
Dr. Calvo and her staff are all amazing! I went in for a "redo" of my two front teeth (crowns that didn’t look good at all) for my upcoming wedding. I was very nervous from my previous bad experience (and a lot of $$ later). I didn’t give her much time before the wedding. She was very thorough and also explained things well. I’m… probably not a dentist’s favorite patient; they scare me. Dr. Calvo made me very comfortable. Most importantly, the end result was excellent. Not only did she give me two new beautiful front teeth but she also did some bonding and made my entire smile look symmetrical. Several people commented at my wedding about how great my teeth looked – including people who had no idea I had any work done. I can’t wait to see my wedding pictures now! Thank you Dr. Calvo I came to you very self-conscious about my smile and it is so nice to feel comfortable smiling now!
Dr. Calvo is amazing. Whether you need cosmetic dentistry or just regular dental work, you will find her to be a caring and talented professional. She clearly and concisely explains the treatment choices and the pros/cons of each. Her office staff are friendly and cheerful. It is such a pleasant place, you'd hardly believe you were at the dentist! I also love that she is a perfectionist and more than willing to go the extra mile for a patient.
Been with Dr. Calvo since 1982…I was born in ’78. She is THE best. She is like part of the family at this point. I cannot count the times I have been complimented on my smile – Dr. Calvo’s great work – and I must say it’s a great feeling. She takes her work very seriously, but does not lose the friendly touch. Every single patient is important to her and she provides the same 5-star treatment to all. The entire staff is amazing! Every single one of them makes you feel at home. The best place to get your smile taken care of. Keep up the great work!! –
Perhaps it was the episode of “Leave it to Beaver” where Wally told the Beave that dentists drill holes in your teeth just so they can make money on fillings but regardless: I am very skeptical of dentists. A close friend strongly recommended Dr. Calvo and I’m glad I listened. Marilyn and her staff (Jennifer and Lupe) are extremely nice but more importantly; I feel like I can trust them. My search for a dentist is over. Now if I can only stop believing everything I hear on TV…
Thank you Dr. Calvo for giving me the smile I have always dreamed of. I’ve had my veneers for nearly three years now and the compliments I have received have been overwhelming. I now feel like I have the confidence to show my teeth all the time (I find myself smiling so much my cheek bones get sore!). If anyone is considering getting veneers they should look no further than Dr. Calvo. She made sure that I was 100% satisfied with how I wanted my smile to look. Thanks Doc!
Dr. Calvo is not just the most amazing dentist I have ever known but she is the most amazing down to earth person. I was lucky to discover Dr. Calvo through a friend who highly recommended her. I got veneers done with her and they look AMAZING!! Everyone is jealous of how great my smile is. When I first went in to see her I was blow away with how much attention she paid to me. She always makes sure to spend time with her patients’ one on one and explain exactly what is going on to make sure you are aware. In my past I went to dentists who never explained anything and just did the routine cleaning without emotion and passion. Dr. Calvo has so much passion and knowledge for the services she provides. She is definitely a dentist who genuinely cares and improves the lives of people around her. I am so grateful to have her. The staff that works with Dr Calvo are the nicest people I have ever known. I look forward to going to the dentist for the first time in my life.
