An enjoyable few hours unlike the golden years of fearing the dentist and unknown horrors to come - instead, although extremely professional, everyone made the task a pleasant one and the patient was put at ease. More power!
This is my first visit to Dr. Alvaro Fernandez and what a pleasure. I like feeling of not being rushed. He took time explaining the work that's going to be done and what might have caused it.
Dr. Fernandez-Carol is amazing; everything he promises is true! The staff is efficient, professional, and caring. Esme is wonderful, and the dental hygienist is the best I've had in many years. No need to search further; this is THE place to go for all dental care!
I have been visiting Dr. Alvaro Fernandez-Carol's office for many years now. In fact, even though I now live in Atlanta, I wait until I visit Miami to see the dentist. I have always been pleased with the service of the entire staff. The doc makes you feel special by remembering small- but important- details of your life. He never forgets to ask me how my fantasy football team is doing.
While waiting for husband, the doctor came out to see how I was doing, I explained to him my situation, so then he took me in and they did a full mouth x ray, took pictures with his camera of all angles. I am 54 years of age and never had a dentist take all these pics, let alone the amount of time after to explain what solutions were available. His bedside manner was impeccable! And the ladies that work in the office and help him were awesome! Thank you very much for your time, honesty and patience!!!!!!.
Dr. FC is the best dentist I have ever had.......extremely personable, very knowledgeable and an excellent doctor. Great listening skills. He truly cares about his patients. He takes care of my whole family.
I like knowledge when it comes to health issues and was very pleased to get complete & easy to understand answers to all my questions - often before I asked. A "full confidence" dentist.
Dr. Fernandez-Carol and staff are truly the best. Not only do I receive excellent care for my children and myself but everyone knows us. The office is so warm and friendly. This day and age most offices are so focused on volume so the personalized care I receive from this office is truly refreshing. I WILL NEVER GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!
Dear Prospective (or current) patients of Dr. Fernandez-Carol:
My first introduction to Dr. Fernandez was in May of 2010 under very unfortunate circumstances. A few prior, I had fallen on my face after slipping on wet tile. I broke my maxilla( upper jaw bone) and severely damaged five of my front teeth. I showed up at his office in severe pain after facial surgery with my front teeth pieced together with a brace and bonding material. I looked like the poster for Dr. Bukk teeth.
I do not remember much about my first few days of the fall, but I do remember how comforting, caring, knowledgeable, reassuring, and gentle Dr. Fernandez was with me. He explained to me what I could expect as far as treatment and needless to say, I was very nervous. I did not want anyone even looking at my mouth much less working on it.
Over the next two and a half years I faced three root canals, palatal expansion, another surgery to place an implant (performed by a periodontist) and five crowns. Dr. Fernandez always made sure I was comfortable (thank God for that little blue pill!) and never made me feel bad that I was nervous. He did such a good job on my temporaries that my family and friends all thought the work was already done.
Six weeks from now will be the third anniversary of the day I fell, and my teeth look better than they did before. No one can believe I have five crowns and that they look so natural. Dr. Fernandez is a perfectionist and an artist. His work is beautiful. I am so grateful that he was the one who did my work. I know that no one else could have done it better because my crowns are prettier than anyone I know!
I should give one word of warning: Once you have work done by Dr. Fernandez, you will be so spoiled that no else will compare. So beware!
Dear Dr. Al,
I am so grateful that my family has finally found a dentist we trust and love! For the first time in my life I don’t dread going to the dentist. For years I would put off going to the dentist; sadly my teeth got the worst of it. Now, I can comfortably head in to my appointment with you without fear and anxiety. Thank you for being the best! My kids also like coming to see you--- and that’s a first!
Dear Dr. Al,
I never thought I’d say this but you and your staff have made dreaded visits to the dentist a pleasant and friendly experience. Your expertise and state-of-the art approach allows me to relax knowing that I am getting the best of care and the helpful and cheery disposition of you and your staff makes for an enjoyable visit.
Many thanks for the good care!
