Amanda P. from North Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I live 45 minutes away from this woman and I would drive to see her if I lived an entire state away. I came back to Vegas after seeing Dr. Ponce about 15 years ago and have never regretted it. She comes in and asks how you are and is genuinely interested. Most importantly she knows her stuff back and forward. I would trust her with my life she just is so educated and is interested solely in working with you and making you comfortable. She has helped me tremendously with understanding my dental costs with over ten crowns as well as my anxiety. I saw her at an airport once and she asked how I was. You don’t get that anywhere else. Good, good people. Some other notable people she works with: Shanelle and Shanice amazing assistants to Dr. Ponce always interested in me and how I am doing or if feel anything during treatment. Bridget is the best because her smile and kindness during cleanings are perfection and Holly who is I believe a treatment manager: knows her stuff and says everything in the sweetest, kindest way you feel more of a person and not just a patient. Absolutely wonderful staff, would never go anywhere else.

I love this facility. Parking is accessible and staff is very friendly. During this covid-19 quarantine, staff was well prepared and made all necessary arrangements to keep everyone safe. Very professional dentists and all the assistants explain procedure well for us parents to understand and answer questions we have. I’ve received services for myself and I’ve also brought my kids and I am thankful that we can all come to one dentist office for all of our needs. Dr. Ponce is the best.

My experience with Delicate Dental was great! The receptionists were kind and helpful with my questions over the phone. I went in for a teeth cleaning and the technician was gentle. Would definitely recommend!

Mia O. from Summerlin, Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


My family and I just moved here from the East Coast in need of a dentist…..too many choices to choose from. With that being said we contacted our insurance provider and the first dentist that came up in our network was Las Vegas Oral Surgery/ Tender Dental Group. We decided to go there, myself,son and husband. We were all seen by Dr. Monica Ponce and we couldn’t have been more pleased  From start to finish the staff was very accommodating, thorough, and pleasant!! My husband and I both needed crowns. Before the procedure was done everything was explained thoroughly.we did not feel pressured at all, they gave us time to think about everything needing to be done. We decided to go forward with our procedures and Dr. Ponce was beyond wonderful!!! Explained everything being done while in chair, made sure we were comfortable and at ease. Her work is phenomenal along with her staff assisting. If you need a dentist we highly recommend Dr. Monica Ponce!! Thank you Dr. Ponce……. we look forward to seeing you soon!!

Samantha G. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ponce was by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. She was quick and efficient. She let me take breaks as needed due to my TMJ. The assistant Shaniece even gave me a little jaw massage and an ice pack during the break time. I literally cannot say enough nice things about these two beauties. The caring, nurture, and humor through my treatment was top notch. I will be returning as a regular patient because of these two ladies. Thank you for everything today!!

Laura L. from Downtown, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dentist offices have always given me anxiety till I started coming here , I can say now that my anxiety faded away thanks to Monica Ponce and her fantastic staff here at the office who made it so comfortable , welcoming and insuring me that I am in good hands , I am billion percent satisfied on my dental work . I walked out the office today with a huge smile actually a confident smile now that my crown have been placed in and my front teeth are matching it’s absolutely amazing . I definitely recommend Tender Dental to family , friends , co workers and to who ever is looking for a new dentist office you definitely will be satisfied Thank you all once again 🙂

Rosa C. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


My visit with Tender dental was just great. I have been dreading going to the dentist for lack of insurance.  Everyone from the great staff at the front desk was so helpful.  Dr. Monica Ponce, DDS and her assistant Sherice were an awesome team. The doctor explained step by step what she was doing while the assistant made sure that I was comfortable at all times.

Jennifer L. from DeKalb, IL (Source: Yelp)


I never write reviews, but in this case I just had to. First off, when I call to schedule the appointment the receptionist made me feel more than welcomed. Next, when I arrived, Dr. Ponce assistant Shaniece was by far the sweetest person I’ve ever met. She made sure I understood everything, and she made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. Lastly, Dr. Ponce was great. Very gentle, and explained everything before doing any work. I would recommend this office to everyone. Thank you guys so much.

Ashley A. from Howell, MI (Source: Yelp)


I give Dr Ponce and five star review for her dentist office. This is a professional and most important clean dentist office. The first thing I notice when I walk in the door is the visual effect of the dentist office and how clean and sterile they are. Then secondly I notice how good their customer service is. I want a dentist that has professional and caring staff that care for the needs of MY care. I love Dr Ponce office for also being flexible to work around my schedule for my needs. If you are looking for professionalism, clean, and friendly I highly recommend Dr Ponce.

Harold P. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ponce did extensive dental work on me in 2016. I have had two spinal surgeries fusing vertebrae in my neck and lower back which limited the amount of time I can remain seated in a dental chair. Because of this limitation Dr. Ponce worked quickly and was very mindful of the amount of back and neck pain I had to endure. Dr. Pouce allowed me to walk around periodically to reduce the pain and limited the sessions to allow me to recover from the back and neck pain. Her staff, especially Andrea, was very detailed in making sure I was able to get the work done in a polite and friendly environment. I highly recommend their service and their flexible hours to accommodate the patient’s schedule!

Arlana W. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


What wonderful service! Every member of the staff is amazing. The dental work done has been excellent. I have by far the most sensitive teeth ever and they have done such a spectacular job in doing what was needed while making me feel so comfortable. This is my new dentist forever…which I will actually go to when I should. Thank you so much!

Mariella P. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone in this office is friendly and helpful. Dr. Ponce’s assistant Shanice is the best. She is always welcoming and makes sure I am comfortable throughout my stay in the patient chair. Dr. Ponce is gentle and always checks to make sure I am ok throughout my treatment.

Gary N. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Ponce. Like most, I was leery of even stepping foot into any dentist’s office; especially when it called for a double extraction. But, to my surprise and delight, Dr. Ponce immediately relieved me of my phobia. From the onset, Dr. Ponce set me at ease with her winning and professional approach to her work and patients. Towards the end of the double extraction procedure (thinking she had been prepping for a temporary bridge), I inquired as to when the extractions were going to take place. To my delight, Dr. Ponce informed the entire procedure was over. I could only ask, “Who is better than you?” To me, the answer to my question was apparent. Nobody. Dr. Ponce and her staff exhibited a friendly, professional attitude at all times while making me feel as if I had known them for some time.

Randolph K. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ponce has been my Dentist for over 10 years. Like so many people I am nervous when I go to the Dentist . The Doctor and her staff always do their best to make the process easy and painless. Dr. Ponce graduated from a well respect dental school and has several awards posted on the wall in her Office .rest assured she knows what she is doing. The Doctor always takes the time to answer all your questions , and is simply put a very nice person who wants to do the best for you Lastly don’t worry about having to sit in waiting room they get you in promptly on time. Their is no dentist I could recommend more highly!

Iesa S. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I, like many, always dread going to the dentist, Dr. Monica Ponce has helped with that immensely. She is supportive and patient. She will always ask how I am doing and is always reassuring. If you have any stress when it comes to the dentist, come to Dr. Ponce I have been with Dr Ponce for a few months now and she is so patient and understanding. She really has a way to make you comfortable and settled. I would recommend her to any of my family and friends

Delicate Dental was extremely professional and friendly. I felt completely comfortable in their care, and would highly recommend them for any dental needs. The entire staff was super friendly, and had a great sense of humor.

Marie S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit to this dentist. The women at the main entrance were very pleasant and helpful. The woman that took me in for x-rays and pictures explained everything she was doing, very gentle and took her time to make sure she got everything she needed. The doctor came in and went over everything with me, made sure I understood everything and was very polite. The last woman was someone from the office that goes over the next step and didn’t rush me or made me feel like I needed to decide immediately what my next step should be. She was extremely kind and helpful and worked with me on every matter. The entire staff at this office is very polite, respectful and did everything in a timely matter. I’m happy to have found this dentist and excited to continue working with them!

Oh my goodness, this place is a dream. As you enter, you walk in to the cleanest, most beautiful, high-tech dental office – equipped with everything you could ever need. . The equipment is top notch and you even have a tv next to you to make the experience even more relaxing. As always, the Delicate Dental staff provide exceptional customer service. Dr. Ponce always makes sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure and is very thorough with explaining each step as she goes. She also goes above and beyond by calling prior to your procedure and follows up afterward. You can tell how genuinely passionate she is about dentistry and helping his patients get the best possible results. I must add, the gal working at the front desk, Star is lovely! She is so knowledgeable about your procedure and the next steps in booking your appointment (I honestly thought she was a dentist too!) Super sweet gal who really knows her stuff and makes the process so smooth. If you need any kind of dental care, I highly recommend this place. You’ll be so happy you went. I definitely am.

I have been to several dental offices the last couple years and by far this is the best one. The dental office is always nice and clean. Unlike other dental offices, they don’t overbook and make their patients wait for extended period. I went on my appointment day, signed in, a minute later I already seated. Didn’t even get to read my phone. The staffs were nice and knowledgeable. Dr. Ponce did an amazing job. She took her time and carefully worked on each individual teeth. Personally, I don’t like going to the dentist, but I have to admit after my 3rd visit here, I just can’t wait to go back. Thank you Delicate Dental

Delicate Dental’s front office staff were very helpful when setting up an appointment over the phone. Once I arrived, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Ponce was very nice and gentle. She made sure that I didn’t have any questions or concerns before starting my dental work. She also made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. I would highly recommend Delicate Dental.

Raymond B. from North Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Ok So I had the most outstanding experience today I have dodged going to the dentist for 20 years due to the horrible previous experiences Ive had, but today I went to Reel Smiles Dentists and let me tell you the staff was AMAZING!! Especially Monica Ponce man she is such a professional and she made me so comfortable she is the reason I stayed and had $5000 worth of work today and I will be coming over the next few months to finish other work. If you ever get a chance please go and check her out shes outstanding and a pleasure to mave met. I have found my permanent Dentist

Paul G. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


well, Im writing a review because this doctor is so worth it. I even made a yelp account to send my kudos( her office told me not to bother since yelp doesnt recognize them–that sucks) Listen, yelp I hope Im not wasting my time with you. From the time i came in to get teeth pulled for my braces, to her thorough explaination, has been a charm. Shes professional and her entire staff was so accommodating. When she took an xray after she pulled them, I had no idea she was done. Im now with her for life.  Thank you

Nina D. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Wow. I just got my veneers cemented and i look amazing. What i thought would be a tough process ( she warned me the temporaries might come off) , turned out to be an amazing present I gave myself. I have a photo session booked with my family now to show off my new smile!! Seeing Dr Ponce started off on the right foot. She is very personable and her demeanor really relaxes you. Her comfort at doing her job really resonates to the patient. I had no qualms from the time I met her. I can see why she is a five star yelp doctor. She deserves these stars. A plus is that she is scheduled to do all my work. She doesnt schlep any of her work off onto other dentists unlike other dentists do. I get to have her do all my work.

Becky P. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Oh my goodness!! I broke a tooth this weekend ( shenanigans of course ). I’ve been a patient of DR Ponce since I was a child. I called her up ( she gives her patient her direct contact – yes, awesome huh!) anyway , she came in for my emergency and put me back together! Can you believe that ! I love how she truly cares for her patients. Thank you thank you. Yep. Day later eating ribs and feeling great

Jerreck D. from Henderson, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ponce is very professional and kind and honest. My wife, kids and I all see Dr Ponce. I personally suffer from sensitivity teeth and hate going to the dentist but Dr Ponce has change my view on the dentist because she is very gentle and also has giving me advise on ways to help with my sensitivity. I highly recommend Dr Ponce to all my family and friends. The office staff is always help full especially Holly!

Jessica J. from Henderson, NV (Source: Yelp)


Me and my family have been coming here for years,  my Dr is ponce and always deal with holly. Everyone is very nice here and will go out there way to make patients happy not only saying this but have witnessed as well. Dr ponce is one of a kind she is the best. I’m always in and out and never have to wait and for any reason I do they inform me and keep me company and offer things! Thanks again and I hope you see this. I also love how they call me to remind me for my appointment it’s well appreciated especially with my busy schedule.

Katy G. from Castaic, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is my second visit with Dr. Ponce and it’s been great. Today I had a deep cleaning and it was quick and didn’t feel a thing. This place is always busy but the wait wasn’t that long only 10 min. I really like dr Ponce very caring and fully explains the procedure. In my fiat visit I had my wisdom teeth remove and I even got a text from the surgeon to check on me and give me recommendations for healing faster.

Braulio Mcknight (Source: Google)


Dr. Ponce is the best in the business! I have seen a lot of doctors (and I do mean a lot!) throughout Las Vegas and she is by far the best. She truly cares about her patients and works hard to find a real long-lasting solution to your problems. She is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of dentistry not just cosmetic. I had severe jaw alignment issues and Dr. Ponce has worked very hard to help me correct this problem and ease the pain. Her staff is very professional and as a whole the office is run very efficiently with excellent customer service. I cannot recommend him enough. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment tomorrow. You won’t regret it.

Tammy K. from Howell, MI (Source: Yelp)


I Had an emergency visit with Dr Ponce. I wanted to come on here to leave a review for this office as I was amazed with their service in getting me in on short notice, while on vacation. Dr. Ponce was gentle, and her staff in the office was amazing. Holly was on top of things making sure all my insurance was able to cover my procedure. Besides telling them thank you in person for their service, I thought that coming on here and leaving a review would be a compliment towards their office as well. Thanks again I am so pleased!

Michael W. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I broke a tooth while at work so I was a Work Comp. Case. I am also terrified of the dentist, combine that with the 20 mile drive and after 13 months I finally had my tooth pulled and now waiting for the socket to heel for a bridge to be placed. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Ponce has a great manner that is calming, I will be using this office for my personal dental need . Today I had the prep work for the bridge to be placed done. The dental assistant showed the most compassion I have eVer experiences in my life! I was shaking and stuff from fear. If you are scared of the dentist this office is worth the drive. The staff is incredible!

Camille Centofanti (Source: Facebook)


My visit today was perfect and all the staff was very kind the dentist is very gentle. My whole family of been patients of this dental office. Also understanding and very kind. I give this practice a perfect 10

Hands down an amazing dentist in Las Vegas , actually, in Nevasa. I’ve been to many dentists, some were horrible, some were good, but Dr. Ponce is exceptional. She is my first female dentist and I can tell you, there’s a huge difference, between male and female dentists. She’s gentle and fast. She pays close attention to your body language and makes sure you’re comfortable. I just had a deep clean and a root canal and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The office is very clean and everyone follows covid guidelines. The hygienist and assistances are all really kind and professional. Last but not least, the rates for the dental services are more than fair and reasonable. I would definitely continue going here and recommend to friends and family.

Patrace B. from North Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)
