    Dr. Lotzof
    I actually did quite a bit of research before choosing Dr. Lotzof. My son has to go in every 6 weeks to have the wire in his braces replaced/re-positioned. Dr. Lotzkof gives out tokens to kids for good dental health that can be redeemed for kid and adult-friendly prizes (gift cards, etc). They also have a drawing you can enter for every visit. The entire staff is very kid-friendly and Dr. Lotzkof explains everything very thoroughly and my first consultation was free. His office is very up to date in equipment and in methodology. Everything can be done in-house. They allow you to be with your children while procedures are being done as well as have any of your other children with you as well. They also provide the opportunity to see a digital transition from before and after care is provided. Overall, I've had excellent experiences with this office and wouldn't go anywhere else.

    Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontic Specialists
    Checked in a few minutes early and waited 10 to 15 minutes before we got called in. Once we were in, things went very well considering my child's first dentist visit. After cleaning, doctor came in to go over x-Ray and exam teeth. Things went child did not cried thru the whole process.

    Dr. Styrt and his whole staff are AMAZING! Everyone is so friendly and caring, it made the whole experience great. I am going to continue treatment with Dr. Styrt for Invisalign. I highly recommend this practice.

    Dr. Paul J. Styrt
    He is absolutely fantastic as is his office. They are amazing. They treat my kids but even when I had some kind of orthopedic surgery, they sent me a card asking me how I was doing. They come out to the lobby to say hello to us. They have snacks for the kids. They explain everything. They also use really high tech stuff, which are the latest and greatest. Their billing is amazing. They have just moved to a new space which is gorgeous. It is easy to find parking. They do a really good job. My kids' teeth look great. They have worked so hard to get all my four kids in at once. They gave us discounts for multiple kids. I can't say enough about that place.

    Eshom, Dr. David
    I recently started a treatment of Invisalign (a clear plastic replacement for braces) with Dr. David Eshom. I have been very impressed with Dr. Eshom?s practice. He is a dentist, not an orthodontist, but has had much experience with Invisalign and I am comfortable with his level of expertise. He is friendly, responsive, and competent, as are the administrative staff and dental assistants. Everyone remembers my name and are always smiling (because they all have such beautiful teeth!). When I was having pain due to the Invisalign, it was easy to get an appointment and I wasn?t charged. His price is very competitive and was several thousand dollars less expensive than two orthodontists that I saw. One caveat: my first set of trays were very painful and Dr. Eshom wasn?t sure why. My guess is that the initial mold wasn?t an exact replica of my teeth, so the first set of trays really moved my teeth a lot over a short period of time until they matched up with the mold. Subsequent trays have been comfortable and that experience was not repeated ? just a little tenderness when I chewed, and some mouth sores from the friction of the trays. But I imagine that is to be expected no matter what dentist or orthodontist you choose. I don?t have any experience with Dr.Eshom as a dentist, but I definitely recommend him for anyone who is interested in Invisalign.

    Barton & Li Orthodontics
    My children both go to San Diego Orthodontic Specialists (Dr. Li) for braces. Although each child was only 7 years old when they got braces, they were immediately made comfortable and had no difficulties in the office. Dr. Li, his assistants, and his administrative staff were courteous, professional, and very skilled. Everyone was gentle and sensitive to the young age of my children. Dr. Li accommodated our frequent unscheduled ���emergency visits��� when a wire broke or other problems arose. It was easy to get appointments, even early morning appointments before school. They have three locations in University City, Tierrasanta and Rancho Bernardo. Their website is

    Tasto, Dr. James P.
    Affordable , friendly staff and clean office. Only been to 3 appointments so far but so far very impressed with the whole experience. They take their time to explain everything they are doing and what to expect during the process. Insurance claim secretary was thorough and extremely knowledgeable in her field. Payments are almost. M.y monthly payments are almost half what I payed for my older son in Florida.

    David C. Adams, DDS, MS & Associates
    Because I am in the dental profession, I knew what to expect from my braces treatment so in that way, everything went as planned.  I  wore the appliances as instructed and finished treatment in the pre-determined time frame.  There were no surprises with either the treatment nor the financial affairs. They accepted my insurance and made arrangements for me to pay my portion. I now see Dr. and staff for retainer checks.
     I just have been so pleased with Dr. Adams and his whole staff.  I always have fun when I go there for my appointments and because I am not a stranger to the profession the staff is comfortable joking with me.  His decor reflects his love of the ocean and is appropriate for the young people he treats and the young at heart as well. 
    Bring your children who need dental care: cleanings, fillings, braces, any kind of dentistry, to Dr. Adams and staff.  And be sure to say "Hi" to Neil the eel.

    Bauer, Dr. Peter J
    My 10 year old had been seeing Dr. Bauer monthly since October 2012.  They are very prompt.  I always get appointments right after school and they usually call her back by the time I sign her in.  Very convenient appointment times with prompt service.  Staff is very friendly.  We are very happy with this office.

    Mod Squad Dental-Dr. Greg Friedman
    Dr. Friedman and his staff are exceptionally friendly and professional. The dental hygienists are all very nice and quickly put my kids at ease. We rarely have to wait for our scheduled appointment times, and if we do, the wait is under five minutes. The kids are offered a lot of choices, from which TV show they would like to watch to which flavor fluoride the hygienist uses. They actually look forward to going to the dentist!
    Dr. Friedman is just as wonderful. At our initial consultation, he gave us great advice for my daughter's orthodontic care at a young age, so we signed our agreement and began treatment. I can say after two years that it has been a great choice. My daughter and I have the same orthodontic problems, and I had to have four teeth removed when I was young. Under Dr. Friedman's care - through the use of expansion retainers - my daughter will get to keep all of her teeth and has a beautiful smile. Orthodontic visits are almost always quick and on time, and we look forward to seeing the friendly staff. We are so happy we chose this practice.
