I would not suggest visiting this dentist. The location is a bit hard to find because their signage is not great and there are not directions/landmarks on their website. Plus, you enter through the side which adds to confusion as to finding the place. Everyone was quite friendly at the desk and the dentist herself was also very nice. I did notice that I was the only one there and it was almost eerie how quiet and untrod the place felt. The cleaning and etc were fine, but upon getting routine x-rays and photos the dentist told me I had 12 cavities, which was a shock to me because I have always taken great care of my teeth and have never had cavity problems before. She showed me photos only (which showed discoloration in some grooves of teeth, but didn't show x-rays, see below). I asked her if she was positive and she was very convinced and actually made a fairly racist comment comparing the teeth of Caucasian and African-American people, and using this as justification for my condition. As I was walking out, they really tried to strong-arm me into making an appointment to have all of my 'cavities' filled and they REALLY tried to strong-arm me into getting the composite (tooth-colored) fillings, which my insurance didn't cover at all and I would have to pay thousands for out of pocket. I'm willing to bet they do this because insurance will pay them less than they would force me to pay in cash. Obviously I was a bit alarmed with the news of cavities, so I went to get a second opinion elsewhere and was told that the dentist at Albania was a quack for telling me I needed ANY fillings. There was simply some light staining in the grooves of my teeth (which is normal) and this dentist actually showed me the x-rays and explained, through showing me tooth morphology, how my teeth looked great. All in all, I was very unsatisfied with the experience at Albania and worry for future customers on whom they will try to prey. Please, go elsewhere for your dental services.

I visited this dentist only a couple of times for my daughter when she was under 10 years of age. Dr. Jimenez was rude and uninformative. She had completed a cleaning and x-rays and discused with me that my daughter needed a filling. When I returned for the filling appointment, I asked her again which tooth woyuld be repaired and she indicated a different tooth. I argued that it was not what she had explained at our last appointment. She then started to work on my daughters filling without giving her novacaine and when my daughter screamed out in pain, she told her to be quiet becuase it shouldn't hurt. I was shicked at this, demanded that she be given novacaine and after the treatment I never returned.
