Ratings for Dr. Irma Gavaldon
Smart, Professional, Think of it this way, she was smart enough to go to the U of M and the go to Mexico and open one of the best dental facilities over there. This is the type of person you want in your mouth!!!! Smart Lady nothing but respect, she does outstanding work
This was hands down the best dental appointment I have ever had! I had gone to see my dentist for my regular teeth cleaning about 2 months before I came to see Dr. Irma Gavaldon for a check-up. My parents have been long time patients of Dr. Gavaldon and come to see her every year when they come to Cancun on vacation. Since my parents cannot stop raving about her, I had to see what all the fuss was about. Although my parents receive twice-yearly check-ups with their own dentists back in the States, they make a point to see Dr. Irma. Why? Because they love the personalized attention that Dr. Gavaldon gives them. My mother and I both commiserate over the fact that although we have entirely different dentists back home, neither of our dentist spend anytime with us (perhaps 1 minute, maybe 2 tops!), give us feedback on our teeth or gum health and nor do they give us advice on improving our oral hygiene. This is not the case at all with Dr. Irma! Dr. Irma spent nearly 45 minutes with me. She explained to me to her background, her education, her interest in dentistry and what brought her to Cancun. I really enjoyed getting to know Dr. Irma on a personal-level. After the initial small talk, she thoroughly checked my gums and teeth for pockets and shared with me her findings. She pointed out areas in my mouth that I need to keep an eye on and to make sure I see my dentist back home if I see changes. She showed me how to brush properly as she feels that my excessive and hard brushing is leading to problems with the enamel on my teeth and gum erosion. We talked about which electronic toothbrushes she liked and which she disliked. Then she showed me how to properly floss as to not damage my gums. I was over-joyed by my visit. It was more than a dental visit, it was an education! And for a fraction of the cost of seeing my dentist back home. My dentist back home did not spend even 1 minute with me after the dental hygienist finished cleaning my teeth and now I was having nearly an hour with Dr. Irma. My advice, go see Dr. Irma, if for nothing else, a check-up and an education on how to maintain good oral health. You will not regret it!!! She will educate you on how to maintain your oral health so that you will not need to be back in her chair for something more invasive! Thank you, Dr. Irma!
I have had 3 implants, have temporary crowns all across my top teeth and braces on my lower. I am thrilled with Dr. Gavaldons work, team and bedside manner. She keeps me informed every step of the way on what is being done and how it is going to affect me. I will update you again when the work is done. I am so excited about what my teeth will look like and I have every confidence that Dr. Gavaldons work will meet, or exceed, all my expectations. I had to have my braces adjusted and did so on my last trip to Puerto Vallarta, obviously by a different doctor. I was quite nervous to see an orthodontist because I was afraid she would insult the workmanship I had done in order to secure more business for her. Not the case at all! She said that mine were the best temporary crowns she had ever seen and that clearly my dentist was a gifted and talented one! Could there be a better endorsement? I think not! I know that she is as good as or better than any Canadian dentist I have ever been to!
