Testimonials"My first visit to Padre Dental was WONDERFUL. I was scared to death of the dentist. Dr Preston was so gentle. Before I knew it, everything was over. I have told everyone I know that if you are afraid of the dentist . . . you won’t be at Padre Dental in Hillcrest. They take care of their patients."
