  • review rating 5  Had another fabulous hygiene appointment with Terri at Next dentistry. I highly recommend having your dental cleanings done by her. She is highly skilled in her field of work. She always greets you with a smile and makes you feel very comfortable. I always feel when I’m done with my hygiene appointment I have the cleanest teeth in town 😁 With that being said I would like you the reviewer to read further about the wonderful care my mom and I shared with Terri. My family and I have been having our teeth cleaned by Terri for decades. I’ve always known that Terri is probably the most highly skilled hygienist in Salinas. My hope when you are reading my review you will see not only her skills and professionalism but her caring heart for others. My mom became very ill the last 2 years of her life. When I would bring my mom into see Terri for her dental cleaning she always greeted us with a sweet smile on her face and made my mom feel important and she always had so much patience with my mom. Terri would put a warm blanket on her, stop and ask her during the cleaning if she was okay. Terri would even go the extra mile and educate me and show me how to clean my mom dental bridges and explain to me what I could do to help keep my mom dental health the best I could during my mom declining health. Sadly my mom passed away a few months ago and I just want you the reviewer to know if your looking for a hygienist who cares not only about your dental health but truly cares about you the person then Terri is the one you should see. Sincerely, Lisa

  • review rating 5  This place is like walking into a castle, so modern i felt like i was in the wrong place. The whole staff is on point, dentist take he's time to make sure you fully understand everything (not an in and out dentist like most of them these days). Never really like the dentist but this place made it a pice of cake, did not even seem like i was there for 2 hours they made my first appointment worth looking toward to my next appointments. Next Dentistry is the place to go.
