About 8 years ago, I fractured one of my teeth and the only option was to have it pulled and to eventually replace it with an implant. The bad news is that I waited 7+ years to agree to let Dr. Malena Rodriguez, DDS,  perform that procedure and that the delay then necessitated an additional bone-grafting procedure.  Dr. R did the graft and it took beautifully. This success then allowed me to go ahead and then get the tooth implant. What was most gratifying was that Dr. R constantly monitored the healing of the bone graft as she didn’t want to move on to the implant until she was 110% sure that all was fine—which, of course, it was. So, we then moved on to the tooth implant itself and she followed the same diligent protocol and all was completed. And, now, I’m able to smile again. The entire experience was such a positive one that I only regret that I didn’t do this sooner.  In fact, I thought so highly of Dr. R and of her professionalism and her work ethic, that I recommended her to a friend of mine who had major dental issues and she came through for him with flying colors as well. My hat’s off to Dr. R.

Last year, it was determined that I needed several implants because of both my long term neglected loose teeth and a fractured tooth under a bridge that was even more vulnerable than my loose teeth.

I contacted a friend for some recommendations and he immediately recommended Dr. Malena Rodriguez as she has been his DDS for many years.  Since he’s always been a good referral source, I took his word for it, but also did some research on my own and learned that she’s a very well-respected prosthodontist in Torrance, CA..  So I contacted Dr. Rodriguez .

Although Torrance, is quite a ways away from my home near Palm Springs, her credentials were worth the travel. And boy, was the decision worth it.

Dr. Rodriguez handled all the major work, in terms of extractions and implant insertions, and the work couldn’t have been more accurate and precise. In addition to her dental skills, which couldn’t be better, her constant follow-through on how I was doing was most appreciated. I feel that Dr. Rodriguez is the perfect DDS and well worth whatever work she feels is necessary. I trust her implicitly and couldn’t recommend her more highly.

“I can’t find words to express my deepest appreciation for my implants.  After I was told that I couldn’t have implants done, I felt so hopeless and scared.  Thank God we have a great doctor like you to make the impossible work.  I know if I weren’t lucky enough to find you, I would surely have a mouthful of problems.”

“I am pleased to say, Dr. Schwarz possess great skills in the field of Dental Implants.  I believe I am an excellent example.  During 1995-1996 Dr. Schwarz completed surgery on 5 implants for me, and each implant turned out perfectly.  I might add, I don’t recall any pain or discomfort.  Dr. Schwarz enjoys an enviable reputation as one of the best Dental Implant Surgeons in the country.”

“I am writing to thank you for your professional expertise in performing all the successful surgeries in my mouth.  The restoration of my teeth far exceeds any expectations I may have had.  They are straight, natural looking, white and beautiful.”

“I ate corn on the cob again for the first time in eight years. When somebody asks me which teeth are mine, I have to think about it. They feel wonderfully natural, and look beautiful. I highly recommend Dr. Schwarz and his wonderful staff. I have had no problems and love my new teeth. Thank heaven for this procedure. My grandparents had false teeth; I’m very grateful that I didn’t have to do that.”

“I have had dental implants for about six years.  I had no trouble adjusting to them.   My dentures no longer move around and that helps me to speak clearer.  I have more confidence when I am talking face to face or on the phone.  No longer do I get sore spots and I have had no further bone loss.  I can also eat what I want and I chew much better.  I can’t begin to express my pleasure with them.  Dr. Schwarz did a wonderful job and I would recommend implants without hesitation. They are great!”

Richard B.

“About seven years ago I read an article on dental implants.  I have worn dentures for many years, I was delighted to hear of something that would make them more stable.  It has done just that and more.  With implants I can eat food I found difficult before.   They are easy to care for and help prevent bone loss, which is important to me.   I was so pleased with mine the following year my husband went to Dr. Schwarz for implants.”

“The two things I remember most about my dental implants are how fast and painless the procedure was, and how completely normal I felt the next morning.  Now that the crown has been attached to my implant, It feels like my original tooth.”

“Implants are the best thing I have ever done.  I’m so glad my dentist told me about them.   For the first time in 40 years I am able to eat steak and apples.  This was all possible due to the kindness and support of Dr. Schwarz and his staff.”
