Having lost most of my teeth due to neglect, I had my reamain teeth extracted (by another dentist). I was advised to wait several weeks to heal prior to get getting fitted for my denture.
I took this time to research different dentists in San Diego & I learned Dr. Koka was the only Prostodontist who accepts Denti-Cal insurance. I thought to myself, who better to make my dentures, than someone who specializes in this field.
When I called, I spoke to his wife who also happens to be one of his assistants & Office Manager, she immediately made me feel at ease & seemed genuinely concerned about my feelings. She scheduled me for a consultation & was able to work with my schedule.
When I met Dr. Koka, he sat down and told me a little bit about himself, his background in dentistry. He also asked me what my goals were regarding my mouth and he went over all my options and his expert recommendations. He set my expectations for every step in the process and thoroughly explained every procedure.
I have never felt more confident in any decision I've made, than having selected Dr. Koka as my Prostodontist. Had he been my regular dentist growing up, perhaps I would not have had to have dentures at this stage in my life.
If you're anything like me, afraid and embarrassed to need dentures, I would recommend you schedule a consultation & let Dr. Koka give you your options! You won't be disappointed!
