Dr. Rivas has been my family's dentist for the 8 years. I have never had a better dentist in my life. I second the other reviewers who said that he is experienced, kind and gentle with the best technology. He is very personable (can even relate to surly teenagers) and fills cavities flawlessly. I have never had to go back in to make a filling resanded. I used to HATE going to the dentist, but what I like about Dr. Rivas is that while you're there, the time flies by, and I found myself a looking forward to come back and visit with him and Kathy Korte, who is the dental hygienist there. I can not rave about her enough either because she is one of the most caring and wonderful women I know. She forgets nothing: if you tell her about a vacation you're going on in San Cabo and in two weeks she ask you about it when you come back in six months for your next cleaning. Amazing! I CONTINUE TO SEE DR. RIVAS EVEN THOUGH I MOVED TO NEW YORK SIX YEARS AGO. That's how good he is. End of story.
