Dr. Hernandez is, hands down, the nicest orthodontist I've ever dealt with. In fact, I don't even want to limit it to the dental profession. She is the nicest doctor I've ever met. Her smile is contagious. And that's fitting, considering she's fitting braces on people to make their smiles better.
There is not a more professional person in the field, and I'm happy to have met her.
For anyone considering where to go, this is the place. It's not only worth making the trip if you live in Escondido or the surrounding areas, but...even if you lived 100 miles away, you'd be wise to make the trip there.

Dr Hernandez is the absolute best!! I cant say enough good things about her. She is a perfectionist and she is very accommodating to say the least. Even if I call the office after hours she is sure to contact me right away on her cell. She is one in a million and I highly reccommend her!!!
