Portola Dental Group is precisely what you want and need when your smile is in need of rescue. I went because I needed an emergency root canal, and I was in the middle of getting consultations for an untreated cervical spine injury that caused a myriad of chronic problems.

Needless to say, I was nervous to have anyone pulling anything from my jaw, but it was perfect. I didn't even need Tylenol. When the dentist finished my crown, it was amazing. It's undetectable. As someone who rarely had cavities, this process was daunting, but Portola made me want to get more work done!

I would have to say my experiences with Portola Dental has been above and beyond my expectations this last year. COVID-19 protected from the time you walk in until you leave. Ari, who works the front desk with a smile I could see beyond her mask, was efficient and very pleasant while she checked me in the system. Within minutes I was brought back by Annette who was my terrific Hygienist the first visit last year. (I have also seen Marissa who also rocks!). She cleaned my teeth, found a problem and advised Dr Leblanc who came over to assess the issue. He told me he was booked, but to return at the end of his day and he would fix my painful tooth! When I returned he sat with me and reviewed a “few other issues” I needed addressed. He was easy to talk too, gave sound advice and was not looking to “sell me a bill of goods.” I’m not going anywhere else! Oh... for those that hate needles. I did not feel anything!

What a great experience! I have a wonderful out-of-area Dentist in Northern California, who has seen me for years and we are very happy. But when I recently lost a crown a friend recommended Portola Dental Group to take care of me. Wow, was I ever happy to have found Lauren who listened, interpreted and scheduled me to see Dr. Matt LeBlanc. I was greeted with a warm sincere smile, a handshake and a cheerful welcome from Lauren who had everything set up for me. She had contacted my insurance company and had the pre authorization done...it was like walking into a well oiled machine! Then Sara made me feel right at home again, like Lauren, she met me with a smile and a handshake bringing me to the procedure room. She made me feel at ease and comfortable to get me started. When Dr. LeBlanc came in to greet me, again a warm smile, a hand shake and he explained what he was going to do. He described the condition of the tooth and he was ready to go. I asked him to pause so that I could explain my "dentist chair fear" and he assured me, when he was done, I would be as comfortable and pain free as I had hoped to be! He was right - the procedure was quick, it was free of anxiety and pain, and I feel as if I have made new friends here in Palm Desert at the Portola Dental Group!!! I highly recommend this professional Dental Group! They are clearly like extending your family...Bravo Portola Dental Group! Warm regards from both, Randy Burden and Larry Barnes

As a visitor with a tooth ache in Palm Desert I found Portola Dental Group on Yelp. I was able to get an appointment that day. Dr Leblanc diagnosed my problem as an infection needing a root canal. After a week of antibiotics, Dr Leblanc did the root canal. Everyone in the office was very friendly and professional. A week later Dr Leblanc phoned me to make sure everything was ok. I would highly recommend this dentist.

Fabulous!! Laurie, my "tooth cleaner" is fantastic!! The best ever. Everyone here does great work and is very supportive. My husband was recently in an accident in which he sustained dental damage. Portola Dental was immediately responsive and helpful, making a time to be sure his dental situation was stabilized and the a plan was in place for restorative work.

There is no doubt that Dr. LeBlanc is one of the best dentists in the business. On a recent trip to Palm Desert, I broke a tooth while eating dinner. I thought my vacation was going to be ruined, but Dr. LeBlanc came to my rescue and fixed me up without having to wait weeks for an appointment. I don't live in the Palm Springs area, but if anyone in that area is looking for a dentist I can tell you these guys are great. Five stars.
