This is the first new dentist I've had in many years. The wait time was short, the bedside manner was great and they... have TV in the dentist room! Only real issue are the hours and how it's difficult to schedule an short notice appt when I have virtually the same work hours as them. All and all a good place. Also it's very close to where I work and live so that is nice.read more

Great service and reasonable prices. Everyone is friendly. They take the time to make sure you are at ease and... comfortable with procedures. My only gripe is that scheduling is really tight, but I guess that’s a testament to good business.read more

My first time at a new dentist, I was a little nervous but after a few minutes I was fine. I had my tooth fixed looks... good, then they had a cancelation so I came back got my teeth cleaned. Over all it went great, I can definitely say this is my new dentist. I will be going back every 6 months.read more

So, I was initially charged for Fluoride treatment on 05/2021. Went back in 03/2022 for my 6 month cleaning they said... no charge for my Fluoride, insurance covered it. I was sure I was charged for the Fluoride during my May 2021 visit. Sure enough I found the receipt and I was. I called the office and after quite a bit of hassle from the account manager she agreed to send me a refund check. That was back in March 2022, it is now almost June, 3 months later and still no check. Yes, it was only $23, but it's not about the money it's about principle. If your going to say it's covered by insurance but then charge someone that's deceptive. This place is no different than greedy Attorneys. I won't be returning!!read more

Becky: My dental hygienist does a superb job of cleaning my teeth specifically in areas which I attract buildup of... decay material. The recommendations she has made has helped me to retain my full set of teeth. She encourages flossing after brushing, use of water pic, and rinsing with a mouth wash not harmful to my teeth. Over the years I have come to trust her judgement.read more

I have been absolutely terrified of Dentist and shots my whole life. I am 74 and fell and really messed up my teeth... badly (only seven left) on the bottom.Gena did a great job of calming me down and the staff for holding my hand. I had cosmetic surgery and I now smile . I keep buying lipstick because now I’m finally not ashamed of my smile. I would not wear it before. I didn’t want to draw attention to my teeth. This is worth the expense, This is the best Dentist and staff ever. God Bless you Dr.Gena and stall .read more

What a great experience at creating smiles. Dr. Pineda was so gentle and took her time to be sure I would be pain-free.... The staff was equally as kind and gentle. All in all the entire experience was very good. Visiting the dentist can be A very anxiety filled experience. The caring relaxed demeanor of the whole staff was a game changer for me. This new patient will be a patient for life. Thank you creating smiles!read more

I wouldn't want to go to any other dentist office. Dr. Pineda always makes me feel at ease and thoroughly explains... everything. Becky, my dental hygienist is great too! Love going to her! I lived in Collinsville when I first starting going and then moved to Highland a few years ago but I would rather drive there than find somewhere closer. All the ladies are so nice. I don't have insurance anymore but they have a plan you can get and will work with you. 5 stars in my book!read more

I have went to Gina Pineda since I was in high school in 2011. Since then I have lost my dental insurance, but I have... been able to continue yearly treatments. This was possible due to their amazing membership plan. Recently Dallas Pineda started at the office after dental school and she is just as wonderful as her mom. Everyone is very friendly and my visits are always quick and thorough. I have watched this office grow and I truly love it there. I would recommend everyone I know will continue going there for all my dental needs until it’s no longer possible.read more

I recently retired and moved to the St. Louis area. Picking a new Dentist is always difficult in a new place. I can’t... tell you how pleased I was with the care, knowledge, professionalism and friendliness of the staff at the Collinsville location. I went in for a routine cleaning and believe it was the best visit I’ve ever had to a dental office. Becky, Ashley and Dr. Pineda were all first class. As a retired professional working with others over the years, I would highly recommend them.read more
