I had a broken tooth an I was referred by by insurance. The staff was amazing they took care of me knowing I was in pain the made sure I was taken care of quickly. They did a temporary fix and scheduled me in the fallowing day to remove the damaged tooth. They made me feel happy I was there and joked around made it go by fast an completely painless. Best experience I’ve ever had at any dental office. Thanks to the staff and Dr. Ha for everything. I’ll be back soon for regular checkups and work.

The entire staff made me feel as though I was the #1 client. Such great care, dedication and focus on being sure I was comfortable was such a priority. Then, when it came time for the dentist to drill out and prep my molar for a cap he made me feel very relaxed with his smile, genuine and friendly greeting and the incredible skill he showed in making it as quick and comfortable for me as possible. His sense of humor was refreshing too. The dental assistant working with him seemed to be like his own hands. The two were so well orchestrated in making, what I always used to fear - the dentist, the experience feel as it should, like one of healing. Thank-you to a fantastic team at the Town & Country Dedicated Dental office here in Bakersfield.

On Feb 19, 2015 you gave us this review: 5.0 /5 I was very apprehensive going into this dentists office as I have had bad experiences in other offices, and yes I am one of those chickens that do not like going to the dentist, but to my delight I experienced a pleasant appointment. From the front office staff, XRAY tech, dental assistant and Dentist I felt completely at ease. Dr. Ha was great at explaining details, and very gentle. I have work on my teeth coming up and I am not one bit apprehensive (well maybe a little apprehensive) I know I am in good hands and feel comfortable. KUDOS to this office!!!!
