I was very nervous about getting implants because I heard they hurt but my teeth were just in such bad shape I had to do something.

I am Bermudian and I fly from Bermuda to Las Vegas for the best dental experience ever! It’s worth the journey because I am with the best dental practice in the WORLD.

He has spoken at professional conferences on implant dentistry, neuromuscular disorders, restorative dentistry and sleep apnea as well as surgical treatments and IV sedation.

“I have known Dr. Gonzales for over 30 years.  He is proficient in implant, sedation, and prosthetic dentistry.  Being one of the leaders in the All-On-4 procedure gives him the ability to have his patients leave his office smiling with a full set of teeth and the ability to eat in one day.  I am always amazed to see the results that my patients receive from Dr. Gonzales.”


Alfonso Najera, D.D.S.
Bell, CA



“After observing Dr. Gonzales perform procedures on his patients I was in awe with not only the complexities of the case but the ease in which he performed them.  This allowed me to entrust Dr. Gonzales to help me with my own wife who had complex dental issues.”
