“His demeanor is calm, friendly and I am thankful that he “gets in and gets out!” My most recent visit was an emergency, under COVID-19 rules. His staff employed all protocols for safety and a few extra that were explained to me. I felt EXTREMELY comfortable and safe for the two hour treatment. Dr Ortega is amazing. His dental assistant and he work so well together and as much as I dislike dental work, they made the treatment about as comfortable and fast as it could possibly be.”
