Jamie the Hygenist told me everything she was going to do for the procedure before during and after(I'm coming back for the other side of my mouth) The office is at a great location and everyone in the office seems to work as a team. As long as I am living here I will go to Gateway Carlsbad for my dental work

I wasn't seen until after 45 minutes after my appointment time. This is happened to me several times since seeing you. And it also happened the last time I was there with my daughter. I enjoy your office but don't appreciate having to wait so long to see the dentist

As stated in my Yelp review this team has changed my view on dentists and the team's they have. Best experience. Dr.Daines is very attentive to my needs and financial situation. He actually cares and so does his team. I have already referred them to my friend and her son.

I've been going to this office since it first opened. The office got off to bumpy start, but has continually improved over the years. I've always been extremely happy with Dr. Park and his team. It seems the office is always making an effort to improve their operation and customer satisfaction. I have referred my wife and mother to this office and they have been very satisfied with the services and team here. Most recently my experience with Jamie has been amazing. She makes you feel like you're her only patient. Very knowledgeable and caring, and very meticulous in her work, great hire! The front office has improved as well. Very friendly and professional. Benefits coordinator is always looking for the best solutions for me and the most cost effective, a rare trait these days. Keep up the good work! Thank you.

Great overall experience. Everyone was super nice. Unfortunately the receptionist was a bit snippy when I asked to update my insurance info-- she said I should have come in earlier, "Oh! I'm not sure we can fit you in," and made me feel like I had made a mistake. The update process took under 5 minutes, so I'm not sure what the problem was.

I was completely satisfied with my dentist and the person who cleaned my teeth. I was not satisfied with the person who polished my teeth as she encouraged me to floss my own teeth as she told me others had done because they were more adept than she. Isn't that her job?

I like many people have avoided the dentist for too long for fear of discomfort, well, I had a long needed (8 years people!) deep cleaning and THE NEXT DAY a (so bad it made me go to the dentist!) extraction! I couldn't believe that after all that I felt NO PAIN!!! I didn't even fill the generous prescription they gave me after admitting, as a grown man, I was worried about pain. Kudos to Dr Dains, and Jamie for the soft touch!!! Truly painless experience and they seem to really care about my dental health...not just money.

I had emergency regarding the loose crown. Called and the appt was scheduled the same day. In this case, in my opinion, I needed just re-cement my crown.Dr was extremely nice as well all crew. Besides, there wasn't any push to get new crown. My problem was fixed quickly and I left office happy :-) Thank you!

I was really having a problem with my teeth and was in a lot of pain. The staff immediately said "yes, we will get you in ASAP" and I was seen within an hour. She was also sympathetic, concerned and did not make me feel like she was doing me a favor or was a "bad patient" and she got everything preapproved and handled so I did not have to worry.. Then, Dr. Danes came in and immediately saw me, and said "Lets get you comfortable, lets take care of you". He was so gentle and patient and he knew what was wrong and how to fix it. Again, telling me the good news, the potential bad news and what my options were. He had to do a procedure which again the staff quickly got preapproved, and he got the problem fixed with no delay. I had no pain with the procedure, he and the staff kept checking to make sure I was OK, and were so nice to me. I have decided this is my long-term doctor. I trust him and the Gateway staff to help me get my mouth healthy and pretty again.

I searched all over for a dental group to meet my many different needs and the Gateway Dental Group did it! Wisdom tooth pain is no joke and they clearly understood that which I greatly appreciated. Sadly their surgeon was unavailable till later in the month but Kenya (im fairly certain that was this amazing womans name) did her best to find me a surgeon that could help me out the very next day from a partnering group. Thank you SO much! I'll be seeing you guys again!

Service and staff are fine. I do find all the signatures annoying and basically unnecessary. It does not project a friendly attitude toward the patient, or leave the patient with a feeling of confidence but rather leaves you with a feeling that the practice is legally covering itself for each and every service it performs under the four or five items that require patient signature. At the very least bundle them into one signature.

I am a new patient, but never felt as one, from my initial call ,to the speedy appointment, to my first visit, I felt like I had been coming there forever. Also impressed by how they work with me when my schedule was tight and I almost was not able to make my appointment they encourage me to keep my appointment and let them know when it got closer to the time where I couldn't make it and to call back I actually made it to that appointmen! My entire experience at Gateway Dental was awesome keep up the excellent patient customer service care:)
