Patient Testimonials

“When I first came to see Dr. Hegde, I was embarrassed to smile and let her and her assistants see inside my mouth. My teeth were at their worst—I had many problems.

“When Dr. Hegde recommended implants for both my upper and lower arch, I almost panicked. I thought that they would pull all my teeth, and the thought of having to wear dentures for several months scared me. I didn’t want to be without teeth.

“But Dr. Hegde had it worked out. When they removed my teeth, they made me temporary dentures so I didn’t have to be without teeth for any time at all. The procedure took some time but it was very much worth it. And they made it very comfortable for me.

“Dr. Hegde is a lovely person; very gentle and patient. And everyone at the office is welcoming. I am very grateful for Dr. Hegde and her staff.

“I used to cover my mouth slightly when I smiled and laughed, and now, by God’s grace and Dr. Hegde and her staff, I am able to speak, smile and laugh freely—and I now love to do so all the time! I would recommend Dr. Hegde for all dental work.”

Martha, Implant-Supported Dentures


“Bottom line—the best people and dentists ever! I was deathly afraid of the dentist for many years, and let my mouth go for way too long. It was time, because many things in my life were being affected by my fear. Dr. Hegde took so much time making me comfortable, it was really unbelievable…dentists don’t do that.

“Over a period of two years she has changed my whole life—she has given me a beautiful smile and the confidence to know I’m healthy and can actually be happy visiting a dental office and treatment chair. The fear is gone, and I’m so thrilled I found her!

“My teeth are beautiful, and I smile a lot more. I am a very happy person, and I love how I look and feel now.”

Diana, Veneers and Crowns



“Dr. Hegde is the best dentist I’ve ever had.

“I came to Bonita Family Dentist for a consultation with Dr. Hegde because I had extreme pain in my tooth, which later turned out to be an infection. I needed to have my tooth extracted and replaced with an implant.

“I have never felt comfortable with a dentist—until I met Dr. Hegde. She is friendly, confident, and makes you feel comfortable. I quickly became at ease. She took lots of time to talk with me about my treatment, and she made a plan of attack we would immediately move forward on.

“I have had no hint of any issues with my implant. I am very thankful to Dr. Hegde and her skillful approach to my case. My sincere recommendation to all is to go visit Dr. Sandhya Hegde.”

Vernon, Implant and Crown



“Dr. Hegde is the best dentist! She is a Grade A professional at her craft. She uses the most current state-of-the-art technology in her practice, and she is a perfectionist; she pays extra attention to detail.

“I am always comfortable visiting her office every time I need to come in—from the basic visit to the most intense appointment, I know that I am in the best hands possible. I am always greeted with smiles from everyone who works for Dr. Hegde, and I look forward to my next appointment. She is simply the best!”

Victor, CEREC crowns and implant






“I found out about Dr. Hegde from my wife. At the time, my teeth were broken and discolored, and some of them were missing. I was greeted by the front desk as I entered, and the staff and doctors were helpful and friendly during each visit. The practice was outstanding.

“I liked Dr. Hegde’s smile and warm greetings. She explained the work that had to be done, and I am now able to eat what I want without having to stop eating to put on more adhesive.”

Rudolph, Snap-in Implant-Supported Dentures






“One of the benefits of having Invisalign treatment rather than traditional braces is not having the hassle of having to remove food particles from your teeth or having to use a special tool to floss. Another benefit was being able to take pictures without anyone really noticing that my teeth were slowly being straightened. Using the trays was easy, and maintenance was also convenient.

“The doctors and the staff are all professionals and take pride in what they do. They provide good, quality care when performing procedures and following up on treatment. The staff are friendly, and they are readily available to help with any questions and concerns.”

“My smile looks better, and I have received many compliments about my teeth.”

Cassandra Aco, Invisalign



“Dr. Hegde is always happy and willing to hear what you have to say, and she has an amazing way of putting you at ease.

“I have been a troublesome patient, but she has never been out of sorts or short with me, even with all the extra work I’ve added for her. If only she could be cloned!

“I would highly recommend her to anyone for any procedure. Her chairside manner is caring, professional and attentive. You can’t find a better doctor.”

Jerry, New Teeth in a Day






“Dr. Hegde quite literally gave me a smile. All my life, my teeth were discolored and had spaces and gaps.

“Dr. Hegde recommended and carried out a treatment plan that included Invisalign and some veneers—and the results were amazing! Now it is hard not to smile, and with the added confidence that a perfect smile brings.”

“Every visit to the practice has been extremely pleasant. All of the staff are very friendly and their focus is to provide a very comfortable environment while practicing expert dentistry skills. Going to the dentist is rarely anyone’s idea of a good time, but everyone here goes the extra mile to make sure you feel at ease.”

“The teeth straightening and veneers have given me a perfect smile. I had no idea how much added confidence this would give me in all settings of my life—to the point that I wish I had done this years ago. Every time someone new that I meet comments on my smile—which happens too often to keep track of—I have Dr. Hegde and her staff to thank!”

John, Veneers and Invisalign
