This was my sons first dental visit first visit to this office. The front reception staff was very unfriendly monotone. Not welcoming at all. Once we were in the back the dental hygienist Georgina was extremely friendly so so great with my son. She literally turned the experience around for me personally and the doctor Villanueva was very great with my son too. I wish the front staff was more welcoming friendly as it would make it a more pleasant atmosphere.

My toddler needed 4 teeth tended to as they had exposed nerves and had a cavity in between his front teeth. I did not want my child under general anesthesia as out insurance does not cover it in an office setting. This office happened to be the only place close that took our insurance and wouldnt use general on him. We did have a little wait to get an appointment but we definitely understood. The staff were all amazing and did great with explaining everything with myself and my child as well. His procedure went great and was super fast. They helped load him in the car and they even called a few days later to check up on him. We are overall extremely satisfied with the work he had. We have since moved cross country so we cannot return but I do recommend this office. My toddler still very much enjoys the dentist

My daughter has been going to the dentist office since her first check up shes now six years of age because it is so hard to find dentist offices via Medi-Cal we are unfortunately stuck with themMy experience with the staff at both locations has been awful. I feel the assistants management and the workers in general dont pay attention to their patients or said patients information that is been documented.We are always waiting long times for appointments.Correct me if Im wrong but the point of an appointment is to be seen at the time of the appointment. Im a single mother and its sometimes hard for me to get my child to doctors appointments let alone sign documentation and they dont make it the easiest task.When you wanna complain the employees are extremely rude and catty they dont do a very good job of hiding the fact that theyre talking about the individual whos complaining.Super unprofessional I would never recommend this place to anybody do not take your children big mistake

At this time my daughter needs a lot of dental work. The dentist Dr. Chiang was patient with her and me and answered all the questions I had at the time. He suggested and I followed it and got a second opinion. Ive decided to go back to CCPDG for the work. Dr. Chiangs dental assistant Lawrence was calm and really reassuring. Rita at the front desk explained my options and scheduled a consultation and an appointment to have the work done. The appointment is scheduled for next month which isnt that far off considering we have DentiCal.

Literally the worst dentist I have ever been to. First they can only see you every 4 months because their schedule is so full. Unless you try and change...

Worked on the wrong side of my daughters mouth and REFUSE to give me the X-rays. They tried giving me the photos after they put on the fillings And when I mentioned this to my mom she said years ago they extracted my little brothers tooth without her consent. Then she took him to another dentist and they were able to see the X-ray before they did the extraction they said it didnt even need to be extracted. Dont even think about bringing your kids here

Front staff is kind and helpful. Been bringing my son for 8 yrs and its always a nice experience. He was recently seen for his 6 month check up and really likes Dr. Chan. He is very professional and gave my son really good information. My daughter was seen for her first check up and assistant and Dr. Sackett made her visit really smooth.

I had a great experience today with Regina when trying to get my son referred to a specialist to have his wisdom teeth extracted. Regina was with me through the whole process when i had to sign a release of records. She explained everything thoroughly is friendly and has a great attitude. Next time i call i will ask to speak directly with Regina.

Going to Central Coast Pediatric Dental Group has been a wonderful dental experience for my children They have been patients of Dr. Murillo for over 15 years now. I highly recommend her and all her staff. They are very professional caring and attentive to our needs.

The worst Please parents if you can I urge you to take your kids elsewhere I waited 2 hours for my daughters appointment One of my children had a sedation appointment and told me they laughed at her because she was so scared. No way is this pediatric dentist trauma informed care AT ALL. The only staff member that is polite and gentle is Junior other than that please go elsewhere

Very unprofessional front desk staff. They need better training. Arrived 10 min early for my daughters 4pm appointment. Never once did anyone mention that there would be a delay since doctors were behind. I waited 45 minutes It seems they overbook.Switched my daughter to Little Bristles what a difference. Some people have no choice since this practice accepts medi-cal. This place is like an assembly factory. They process as many children as they can just to get the money. If possible do not take your children here
