"Yesterday was my first time at the location. I had an abscess tooth and was in immediate need of relief. I just walked in and they were able to see me within the hour. Everyone was professional and kind. Since, Dentalworks was not able to remove the tooth, Dr. Gomez gave me a referral for an oral surgeon. The dental team also outlined a variety of procedures that I will need in the future (my teeth are horrible and it has been a while since I saw a dentist.) They all explained why the procedures would be needed versus just telling me about them. I appreciated it quite a lot. The fact I got xrays, a treatment plan, an antibiotic, and a referral immediately and for only a few dollars, I am more than pleased."- J.M. / Google / May 01, 2019

During each visit at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills, our dentists will give the patient a precise timeframe of how much longer they will be required to wear Invisalign.
