Your First Visit To Our Cathedral Dentist


Feeling a little anxious about seeing a new dentist? Don’t be! When you first walk into our Cathedral City office, you’ll be warmly greeted by our friendly staff. If you haven’t filled out your medical paperwork already, we’ll walk you through that process and answer any questions that you have. These forms help us understand your dental needs so we can provide the very best service for your smile!

Same Day Dental Treatment: Why Wait?

Once your paperwork is completed, one of our assistant will escort you back to our clinical area. After any needed x-rays are made, Dr. Ruben Mendez will review your images and provide a thorough exam of your smile and discuss any concerns you may have.

If your teeth need attention in any way, he’ll discuss the recommended treatment and other options that may be available. In many cases, your treatment can be done right away on the same day. Just remember: caring for your smile begins at home. That’s why Dr. Mendez also offers oral hygiene instruction to all patients, as part of your initial consultation.

Preventive and Therapeutic Cleanings

You’re unique and so is your smile. While some patients only need preventive cleanings at regular checkups, others may need more extensive care. If you suffer from periodontal (gum) disease, Dr. Mendez offers deep cleaning therapy to remove buildup and help you eliminate the gum infection. From routine care to complex dental treatments, Dr. Mendez is here for you - and best of all, you don’t have to drive all over town for a healthier smile!
