What Do His Patients Say About Him?

Here are some examples.

My experience was excellent. I will highly recommend Dr. Polanco for his expertise, training, concern and friendliness. I am 77 years old and have probably been to about that many different dentists in my life! and I would rank him at the very top of them all." - Ian, on Healthgrades

Dr. Polanco is the absolute best in town! I would follow him anywhere. Not only is he an honest doctor and so kind but he is extremely gentle. I usually hate the dentist but with him I never have any issue going to him. Also, his staff was super sweet, and I love his office. I would highly recommend him! -  Lina, on Google

Dr. Mario Polanco saw me right away for an emergency visit. He is very polite and thorough. Everyone in the office makes you feel as comfortable as possible. I have terrible anxiety over dentist visits and this place was amazing! - Marisa on Yelp
