Dr. Nation is a great dentist. She is as skilled as she is personable. I've seen a LOT of dentists in my life. Dr. Nation easily is the best in terms of the quality of her work. Her staff at Brookside Smiles is also outstanding--professional and friendly. A few years ago I had a number of procedures (fillings and crowns) done on me in my home state of NY. Unfortunately, it turns out that the poor quality of this work led to a number of significant problems (including an infection caused by poor placement of a crown). Because I frequently travel to this area (and Dr. Nation is the preferred dentist for most of my family here), I went to her for a checkup, wondering why I was still experiencing discomfort. Not only did she set aside a great deal of time to fit my travel schedule, she clearly explained what the problems were, what she was doing to fix them, and what I needed to do to follow-up in NY once I found a better dentist. But I go out of my way to try to schedule my checkups with her whenever I can. When you find a dentist you can trust, it's worth going back!

Dr. Nation is a wonderful dentist (and a great human being). He is great with my 9-year old daughter, who is always a bit nervous about dentist visits. Dr. Nation and his wonderful staff put her at ease. In truth, although I live in New York state, I bring my daughter to southern California to visit her grandparents at least twice a year. I always make sure to schedule a dentist appointment during those visits, because Dr. Nation is so much better than any other dentists I've taken my daughter to in the past. I suspect that before long he will have so many patients that getting an appointment will be a challenge!

I strolled into to Maguire Toyota on the off-chance that I could return my current lease a few months early and get into a new car before leaving town for the summer. Ryan Salino was the first to meet me at the door, and he patiently waited for my lengthy explanation about why I was there (let's just say that my case was complicated after over a year out of the country and an unhappy DMV), before calmly letting me know that he could help right away. Long story short, the defensiveness that I normally have when speaking to car dealers was soon completely gone. I returned later that day and Ryan was completely up-front about my options, listened to my needs, explained that he was not under any incentive to sell me a particular car, option, or after-market service. He stayed 2 hours after closing (much to the dismay of the others who were helping him), and even though the purchase was still incomplete, allowed my us to take the new car home so that we would cap-off a busy day with a rewarding experience. The next day we wrapped-up the sale (which included Maguire fighting to get me the best financing package despite a few hits to my credit). My last car (Toyota Camry) purchase was at Maguire as well, and the person who served me then (Rue--now working the imports) was as honest and helpful as Ryan. They even credited me with the outstanding balance on my Toyota lease so that I could apply it to my new Kia lease. I'm starting to be less afraid of the whole process thanks to these guys. Never thought I'd get this far. I would recommend them to anyone. I'm sure there may be some stray characters at the dealership who aren't as great as Ryan or Rue, but I've yet to meet one.
