I've referred many friends to Dr. P, all have had a painless, comfortable and even fun experiences. Dr. P is the master of the painless injection. The staff is not only knowledgeable, and compassionate, but friendly and fun too. A full 5 star experienced dentist.

We have been loyal patients of Dr. Demetrakopulos for 4 years now. We drive from Rocklin almost 2 hours to come see Dr. Pauline. We love the service and treatment we receive. Everyone is super friendly and we have thoroughly enjoyed being patients here. We highly recommend going here for any dental work.
