Didn't like the job my last dentist did. Ending having more teeth and crown problems as a result. Went to Stage One Dental and Dr. Weinstein did a wonderful job on my teeth and fixed the bad job from my last dentist as well now you can't even tell anything was ever wrong plus gave me a no charge polish to even all my front out. Definitely will keep going to see Dr. Weinstein for any and all dental work.
Dr. Alvarez was AMAZING! I am so scared of the dentist that I was literally crying in my car before the appointment. I told Dr. Alvarez that I was scared and he treated me with so much care. I went in as a new patient. They did the new patient exam, and x-rays and told me I needed a root canal for an infection and had 3 cavities. They weren't busy so they did the root canal and the fillings same day so I wouldn't have to be scared to come back! I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez and his assistant Linda, who was so gentle and fantastic as well!
Sage Dental is very organized, clean and professional. Michelle at the front desk keeps the whole place together and running smoothly. She is friendly, customer driven and always willing to help. She goes above and beyond to keep customers happy like myself! Thanks for this great employee. I look forward to coming in because of her upbeat attitude! Sage Dental is awesome! Dr. W is fantastic also!
We have been going to Sage Dental in Oviedo for years. It’s a great business with friendly staff. We do not have dental insurance so we purchase the VIP membership for the family. We have never been pressured to consent to any other services. Hygienist we see is professional and thorough. The same dentist has been there for years. I never get the feeling that this is a corporate chain dentist looking to make money. It has the feel of a hometown dental practice.
