Committed to Your Satisfaction

One of the hallmarks of our dental office is that we genuinely appreciate that you've trusted our team to care for your family's oral health. That's why we strive to exceed your expectations from the moment that you walk through our doors. From answering your questions to making accommodations to meet your needs, we want you to feel comfortable and at home in our office.

"I have been a patient of Dr. Berenji for many years. Her staff members are very proficient yet friendly. She is very gentle, and I have always found the outcome of her work to exceed my expectations. I strongly recommend this dentist and will not hesitate to advise my family and friends to become her patients." – Hussein E.

Using State-of-the-Art Technology

One of the greatest strengths of our El Centro general dentist's office is our use of state-of-the-art dental equipment. Over the years, we've improved our office's technology to help provide you and your family with exceptional dental care. Depending on the treatment or procedure, we may use various technologies:

  • Digital x-rays can create detailed images of your oral structures, including your teeth and jawbones, in less time and with significantly less radiation.
  • Intraoral cameras are a tool used to observe hard-to-see portions of your smile, like the back of your teeth. The lightweight and ergonomic design of intraoral cameras makes it easy for our dental team to take vivid pictures of your smile to improve our diagnoses.

Treating Patients With Anxiety

Each year, countless individuals don't receive the dental treatment they need because of anxiety about visiting the dentist. As such, easily preventable dental situations progress to costly complications. At Desert Family Dentistry, a founding principle of our office is that every patient who walks through our doors will feel relaxed and at ease.

To help you feel comfortable, our team will treat you with compassion and kindness. We deeply appreciate you choosing us to care for your family, and we will handle your anxiety with sensitivity and understanding. Our family dentists and their team are also happy to accommodate your needs, like taking breaks during your appointment when needed.
