La Jolla Dentists Reviews

"I've been going to him for 35 years. He is a good person who does a good job. They have a good office environment. Their billing and timeliness are fine."
A
"We like him. we've been with him for 10 or 15 years. I really like him. He keeps up on all the latest things that are happening in the dental industry. I really like his staff and the person who cleans my teeth. Their availability is okay. They have a pretty full counter, but I don't think that the reflection is bad in any way. It's a reflection that they provide a good service and they have a lot of patients. I have recommended him and would continue to go back to him in the future."
A
"Overall things went very well. He did the upper and lower right quadrant root cleaning and in three weeks I will be going back in for the upper and lower left quadrant cleaning. I like him and his staff. They are all friendly and knowledgeable. They make you feel like one of the family, they don't treat you like a number, they treat you like a person. Some of the nurses have been there for almost 17 years and I really like that. He is a little expensive, but he has state of art technology and does a great job."
C
"I have consulted him, couple of times, over a year ago, for cleaning and x-rays. My wife also was using his services, but, she was very unhappy with them, so we switched providers. My wife was recommended a very expensive work and no clarity was given with regards to the break up nor what the insurance would pay and what she should pay. My experience was fine. I do not use his services any more."
A
"He took over the practice of my former dentist. The office environment is very good. The staff is very friendly. They have been there for a long time. He has a very good bedside manner."
A
"It is a quiet little professional office in a little house. They did implants for me at one point and after about 20 years they took them out. They have done everything. They do all of our dental works. He is just very low-key and we have never been anything, but happy with him. So we have never looked at anybody else. Once I decided that I wanted the pain free dentistry where they give you the nitrous oxide. So I went to another dentist for a couple of times. Then I decided that the nitrous oxide wasn?t worth it and seemed much more expensive. I wasn?t particularly happy with the work. He is there when you need it. I would go back to him."

was professional and I had a few cleanings, 2 root canals, and 2 crowns done in her office. After the cleaning, her staff kept trying to sell me this expensive treatment of inserting antibiotics into my gum. I am a scientist by training, and this sounded like one of those useless treatments (which was confirmed by my dentist friends later). This seems pretty unethical to try to sell me procedures I don't need. For my root canal, Dr.
La Jolla Dentists Provider Name Locked
did not seem to really know the procedure that well (I think she only have 2-3 years of experience out of dental school at the time of my treatment). Usually root canals should be done by an endonists. Overall, all the treatments were relatively expensive and the care was just average. It seems like the office was really down on money and had to charge extra for everything.

and now pay out of pocket for my biannual cleanings. (I had been told by one HMO dental factory provider that I needed four cleanings a year and that I had to pay $99 for each of them. Dr.

recommended two cleanings a year and they cost me $90 ea.) So now I keep the HMO for major things and keep my fingers crossed. I go to Dr. B for everything else and pay out of pocket. He and his staff are the only dental office of my 58 years that I do not mind going to. I cannot recommend his practice highly enough. I just pray he doesn't retire before I die or move away! This is old-fashioned, conservative and caring dentistry at its finest.

"After moving to San
La Jolla Dentists Provider Name Locked
15 years ago, I had a couple of bad experiences with dentists here who were part of a low-cost dental insurance plan (one handled patients as if they were on an assembly line, and another tried to scare me into having unnecessary and expensive services), making me fully appreciate how important having a decent dentist is! I got rid of the cheap dental insurance plan, and was fortunate to discover Dr.

as his office at the time was just a few blocks from my home. He and his office staff routinely provide very good care, and I have maintained the connection with his office even after he moved several miles away. I am not the easiest patient due to having an extremely small mouth opening (due to an old injury), and this office has been helpful in dealing with that, both with special equipment and with patience. Prices are reasonable, given the high caliber of care provided.

"He is very meticulous and very detail oriented. He is a very nice person. I feel completely confident when I go to get work done on my teeth. I don't like going to the dentist but I know when I got there he will make it as comfortable as possible and the work is a good high quality and I won't have any problems after."
