After an extensive search for a dentist who is sympathetic to my problems, gentle, thorough in his evaluations, and more interested in me than money; I have finally located such a person in Steven Blech, DDS.
The office staff is friendly and kind to you. They all have smiles for you from the time you enter their office till you leave. The hygienists are very sweet and quite sympathetic to your needs. As my jaw began to ache, the hygienist stopped cleaning my teeth so I could relax my face with a heated towel. She also gave me a couple of ibuprofen for the pain and inflammation. Besides seeing her that day, I had also seen the dentist that morning!
Steven Blech also stopped on occasion as needed so I could take a rest while he was working on me. It has been a long time since I have had a dentist that took interest in my comfort. Dr. Blech doesn't seem eager to go onto his next patient until he has you taken care of. I am a new patient, so it took a few minutes at the beginning to fill out my forms, then pictures were taken by Judy, who talked and kept me calm during the whole process, and after that Dr. Blech checked my gums, tongue, and jaws. He also took care of a problem I have been having for two years, from a previous dentist's mistake, in five minutes. He took out the floss that had gotten stuck into the gum line and told me there was a small indentation on the tooth that the floss got stuck under and wouldn't come out. He removed that bump on that tooth as well as the height of the crown I received two years ago. My question is - why couldn't the other dentist see these problems and taken care of them two years ago, when Dr. Blech was able to take care of these problems in five minutes? Could it be that Dr. Blech is more thorough and knowledgeable in his work? I do think that is the answer! I also think it is because Dr. Blech is concerned with patients and not in having the biggest dental office in Victor Valley.
I will be recommending Dr. Blech to anyone that asks me. Besides hearing about Dr. Blech on the Judy's Book website, I also found out that my best friend had been going to Dr. Steven Blech for years. I should have asked her about her dentist a long time ago!
