Our patients are at the heart of our practice, and we truly value their comments. Read on to find out what some of Dr. Rinehart’s patients have been saying.
“All my life I wanted beautiful straight, white teeth. At the age of 39, I had braces and still my teeth were too small and discolored. You told me veneers would greatly improve my smile. It took only two painless visits and my teeth were gorgeous. It took 66 years, but now I have the smile I always wanted.”
“After only one visit, I'm very confident that this was the best choice for a new dentist. The staff is more than friendly; that's so important to me. I feel that my needs are in very capable hands. Perhaps, I may even look forward to going to the dentist! ”
For the last 10 years I have been a patient at Dr Rinehart's. My teeth were in a degraded state when I first arrived but over the years Dr Rinehart has provided me everything from routine maintenance to porcelain and gold crowns and he has done so with speed, technical quality and caring comfort that leaves other dentists in the dust! Dr Rinehart is a genius of some kind-he restored my smile! Also, I am not an easy patient to have as I abhor dental pain of any kind and my teeth seem to be extremely sensitive to most instruments-I may even be called a "Scared y cat" as I am genuinely nervous even during a cleaning-but the team of good folks in Dr Rinehart's office-Karen, Chris, Julie, Sarah, Mindy to name a few, are truly compassionate and fun people. They function almost as a family and obviously have fun while working hard for their patients-there is love in that office. They are truly gifted care-givers!
Specifically, I had a severely cracked tooth that simply shattered below the gum line and I was faced with the choice of a bridge OR an implant. I only know one thing about bridges for tooth repair....people complain endlessly about the accumulation of food. For me the choice was obvious-I had to have an implant! Chewing is terribly important to me as I had lost the sense of smell as a child and the tactile pleasure from chomping down on a good steak or munching on a caramel apple is a BIG DEAL to me-a source of much pleasure!! An implant is a good investment in not just dental health but worry-free eating! Folks, thanks to your efforts and Dr. Rinehart's magical touch - NO SWELLING & NO PAIN... In truth, I was actually scared about this implant as drilling into one's jaw sounds like a 2 week vacation to North Korea! Frankly, I am amazed - - I filled the prescription for the Tylenol and took 2 before bed as a precaution - even though I had no pain... and awoke the next day to nothing unusual. This implant is undetectable. It feels as at home in my mouth as my molars! Dr. Rinehart is a genius - I am in disbelief as to how innocuous and pain free the entire procedure was and the lack of follow-up pain and complications! Please feel free to use this as an implant testimonial for all your other scaredy-cats like me!
Did I mention that I am squeamish about all procedures?
Dr Rinehart and the angels of mercy that work with him made it unbelievably painless-It was a very simple process that is well planned and reviewed. The outcome is a beautiful tooth that stands up to the normal rigors of dental activity!
In closing I heartily recommend dental implants as a viable solution and Dr Rinehart as the care giver par excellence! Again many thanks to his loving and caring staff!
Thank you to everyone there. I am very happy that I made the decision to come to your practice. The professional atmosphere and treatment I have been receiving has made the difficult transition to "toothless" more bearable than I thought possible. As my decaying teeth poise themselves to take my life you take them from me. You do this with minimum pain and maximum comfort, beyond anything anyone could wish for. As I sit here 2 days after an extraction of 4, my comfort level is almost restored to its usual state. Thank you again. If I have any regrests they would have to be, I wish I would have come to you sooner. Thank you and God bless every one of you. Till we meet again. May all your smiles be bright!
"I have had an exemplary dental experience with Dr Rinehart and his whole staff both professionally and inter-personally. You guys got it goin on! I've particularly enjoyed Lyndsey and the front office group. If I can find a dental office in Bakersfield that's even half as good as Dr Rinehart's office I'll be happy."
This is a first class operation. I suppose most dentists would give their eye teeth for a staff and office suite like this one filled with warm, personable folks. The doctor is a bright, thoughtful,and caring guy. You can tell that he looks at things from every angle to achieve the best possible outcome. He provides the time you need to be sure of what's going on and so does his staff. My anesthesia anxiety was unwarranted. It was a breeze. So my feelings after five visits and multiple procedures are...that the quality of Dr Rinehart's work, the generosity with time, very well trained compassionate technicians, very professional front office and here's the big one...continuing post op care are (in my sixty years of high expectations) among the finest. AND no...I am not a paid ghost writer or family or staff. I'm a very pleased patient. Some things just need saying..You can sense the character of this office. They are a skillful, well intentioned and trustworthy group. This is the dental practice you've been hoping for!
I just love Dr Marr. He is professional, caring and has a cute smile :) He is very patient and answers all my concerns...most importantly he is pain free!!!!
I had mouth pain for about seven days prior to calling. I was given an appointment immediately by the concerned staff. I had a visit with Dr. Marr. He and his assistant were gentle and very imforative. I needed to have my wisdom teeth removed. My brothers wedding was only 2 weeks away so they scheduled the procedure immediately to allow for enough facial recovery time. I have had many dental procedures (caps, root canal, braces, fillings, and teeth extraction.... And I have a very lovely smile by the way) and do not love going to the dentist, in fact, fear it. The staff arranged for me to have conscious sedation. I truly did not believe that would be enough, but it was. I do not recall the procedure in addition I had no "hangover" from the medicine. I have recovered with minimal bruising, little swelling, and also no sign of a dry socket. If you new to have this done, or another intense procedure I recommend Dr. Marr and his talented and kind staff highly.
