  • "I have been going to Dr. Poblete since he started with Dr. Padmos many years ago. He is always very nice and personable and does excellent work! A few years ago I decided to have my front crown redone and decided it would look better if I did both of my front teeth. Dr. Poblete did an amazing job, I wish I had done it years ago! His hygienists are very good. I have had Tara the last few times and I have also seen Sarah and they are both excellent!"
