These professionals are the absolute best, they were super sweet and extremely patient with me. I haven’t been to the dentist is over 8 years and they never once made me feel judged. They were understanding and ready to put me back on track with my oral care. Looking forward to my next visit!

Dr. Nieto, DDS, and her team at Charming Smiles of LA Quinta were very reasonable and helpful during my dental visits. Their team had terrific bedside manners. Not only that, but they also ensured there was not too much pain throughout the procedures. I would recommend this dentist to anyone in the future.

Nice experience! I have a bad toothache due to a root canal I had 10 years ago at a different dentist office. It got reinfected again and I was given treatment while I get it done.I was a new patient and I was able to be seen the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great experience and service in such short notice.
