5 stars - As it has been since the beginning for me. I find Lotus Dental Associates (LDA) very compassionate to my dental needs. One of the reasons I chose LDA, when I moved here, was a sharing by a man who, like me, was concerned about the usual "pain" associated with dental work including the routine cleaning. He said that LDA (Dr. Phan) used techniques to minimize such discomfort. I an happy to report he was absolutely right. Not only does Dr. Phan give me excellent dental advice, she is the only dentist that I have EVER had that could administer the Novocaine with "zero" discomfort. I felt no pain at all from the shot. Another plus is my LDA hygienist, Simone, who similarly has performed both deep and regular cleaning painlessly. At first i thought LDA was slightly more expensive than my previous dentists; however, both Dr. Phan, Simone, and the LDA staff are well worth it. AND I hope to continue to let them take such care of my dental needs. I highly recommend LDA to anyone, especially those who "fear" the pain of going to the dentist.
