Let me begin by saying that this was one of the best visits to a dentist office I've ever had!!!! The booking process was easy and efficient. I had all the forms filled out prior to the appointment and the check in was quick and easy thanks to Sara. There was absolutely no waiting time in the lobby and before I knew it, I was sitting in Drs. chair.

My appointment was on time, and I appreciated the tour around the office. I want to thank Monica up in front for letting me know I'll be in great hands; and I was. I seen Rosie for my cleaning and she was very nice and she made me feel better after telling her I was terrified. For my exam I seen Dr. Partridge and his assistant Antonio and what A great pair I felt the care and concern. Thank you to the Blanco Circle team!

- David Garcia

They were able to schedule more than one procedure per visit so that the bulk of my needs were met in three visits. I chose conscious sedation for these first three visits. After the third visit, Dr. Partridge talked to me about saving my money; I really did not need sedation. He told me that he was known as Dr. "Painless" Partridge. I took his challenge. I must commend him for keeping his word. I wish to thank Antonio for his pleasant demeanor in assisting. Thank you Vanessa for keeping the most painful part (payment) professional and congenial. Thank you to all the staff for an overall doable experience. A+ grade to you, Dr. Partridge.

Award-Winning Dentistry

Voted the best dental office in Salinas
for 6 years

Whether you need a simple checkup and cleaning or advanced cosmetic and restorative treatment, we have the expertise and training to help you and your entire family. And when you come to our Salinas dental office for the first time, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Not just because we’re equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology. And not even because we see our patients almost immediately with no wait time. It’s because our doctor and staff provide exceptional, comfortable and gentle dentistry in an environment that will make you feel pampered.

Our Dental Practice

Dependable Family Dentistry in Salinas

Most of the time, our patients just need the basics in dentistry -- general or preventive dental care. That includes two checkups and cleanings, fluoride treatments, digital x-rays, and maybe a small filling from time to time. When you visit us regularly, Dr. Gary Klugman and our dental team can keep an eye out for the warning signs of larger problems. Early detection of cavities, gum disease, faulty dental work, and other issues ensures we can provide the most conservative restorative treatment at every turn.

It’s not just your smile that benefits from general dental care. People who have healthy teeth and gums are also more likely to enjoy better overall health. Gum disease contributes to a number of health conditions, including heart trouble, respiratory issues, and may eventually cause total tooth loss. Preventing periodontal infections is crucial for general wellbeing, and it’s easy with regular general dentistry.

Patients of all ages should visit the dentist at least every six months. Your Salinas dentist welcomes the whole family, including your youngest smiles! Around age three, your child should start coming in for a routine checkup and cleaning. Kids love our friendly, welcoming approach -- and preventive care is crucial for proper dental development.

Emergency Dentistry

Comforting Sedation Dentist in Salinas

If you are nervous visiting the dentist, or if mobility issues prevent you from sitting in the dental chair for a long period of time, we can help with sedation. Dr. Klugman is one of only about 500 dentists in the entire state of California who are certified to perform sedation dentistry -- so when you visit Blanco Circle Dental Care, you know you’re in good hands. Our Salinas dental office offers oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and intramuscular or intravenous sedation. The one that is right for you depends on your needs and the procedure being performed, but whichever you choose, you’ll finally be able to relax, completely removed from what’s going on around you. Sometimes, patients only require one visit with sedation dentistry. Afterwards, they realize there’s nothing to fear from dental care, and are able to resume the regular appointments that keep smiles healthy and strong for a lifetime to come.
