Thank you Elena and Christina for welcoming us to your office. I see why patients are here for Dr. Scoma. The service you and your staff exude along with Dr. Scomas expertise and craft smoothed our anxiety and made the visit that much more pleasant. Thank you for what you do!

This is our first time to see Dr. Scoma, but I have to say that after years of taking the kids to our regular dentist, I'm thrilled with the experience they have had at the pediatric dentist. All of the kids needs are serviced in one place.

The office was able to accommodate a same day appointment due to some tooth pain my son was having. He ended up having an extraction. Dr. Scoma and staff were able to put him at ease and the whole process took only a few minutes. They are always professional and kid friendly. Would definitely recommend this dentist

I absolutely love the staff here! They are all very professional and friendly. Dr Scoma truly cares more for the patients' well being than the cost. He took amazing care of my son and the staff as well. Dr Scoma was very informative and was available to answer all my questions as was any one from the staff. I love how the office is set up for children as well very inviting. I would recommend anyone to this dentist!

My son is always a bit nervous when seeing the dentist. He unfortunately had a bad experience in the past with a different dentist. He was all smiles after seeing Dr. Scoma and he happily announced that the dentist praised him and said he did a great job. Although we live 20 minutes away, we feel Dr. Scoma is worth the drive.

Dr. Scoma's office is the best dentist office I have ever been to. The front office staff is professional, warm, efficient and helpful, and my kids like the technicians and Dr. Scoma. Since my children are older they go back by themselves but after each appointment Dr. Scoma calls me back to discuss and explain what he found. A few times, my children had poor hygiene but he was very careful how he told me this in front of my teenagers which helped keep their dignity but got the point across. Over the years, when my kids were in braces, he was extremely professional as he advised me on the attempt to keep my kids teeth clean and healthy through the orthodontic process. Even my teenagers have commented about how professional he is.

My son has been going to Dr. Scoma from the beginning. Not the easiest patient initially. Dr. Scoma has been patient and positive throughout. My son doesn't mind going to the dentist and I think that speaks highly of the quality of work and relationship between patient and dentist.

It was a great experience. Excellent staff members. We just had a financial problem with coverage and not accepting medi-cal which is why we couldn't stay. But all in all, I highly recommend this place.

I was referred to Dr. Scoma by my dentist since my daughter had cavities. I have to say I was a little nervous about sedating her for treatment, but Dr. Scoma dissolved any anxiety I had about the procedure. He answered all of my questions and I was so happy that I could stay with her during the procedure. I'm so thankful to him and his staff....they were wonderful! I'd refer Dr. Scoma to anyone I know!

Although I think he lacks some bedside manner, he does seem to really know what he is doing. If he wasn't so good, I would not have come back. He is direct, which is fine, but almost to a fault. The dental assistants are NOT the nicest there. But, I would recommend him because I think he does a good job, but for that reason only.

I took my daughter here for her first check-up when she was 3 years old. We liked the decor when we walked in, but the lobby area is pretty small. He has it set up where all the patients are in the open. One good thing is that there are TVs on the ceiling for the kids. When it was my daughter's turn to sit in the chair to start her check-up, she got scared and started crying. The dental hygienist that was tending to us didn't know how to talk to kids and didn't make her feel very comfortable and actually talked down to her. She then proceeded to step aside about ten feet from me and made a personal phone call on her cell phone and I heard her use curse words! Not very professional if you ask me. Once Dr. Scoma finally saw her, he was really nice and just counted her teeth, but nothing else happened. Unfortunately, due to our bad experience here, we will never return.
