I always feel like I get stuck with extra charges with deep cleaning. I don't like that part. I don't need the expensive flouride. It is excessive.

I dislike the whole dentist thing in every way. I took my children in to have procedures done and so far Escondido Smiles has been very accommodating. The dentist, the orthodontist and office staff made all a simple and pleasant experience.

I've been here three times now, and each time I was treated with respect and compassion. As someone with a full-blown phobia of the dentist, this is by far the best clinic I've ever been to. The team is all very nice and they completely understand how to treat patients with high anxiety. They fully explain the cost of treatments beforehand. When I had an issue with my wisdom teeth (the reason for my initial visit), they didn't have a timely appointment available to get the teeth pulled, but they went out of their way to find a place that would take me within the next two days. They also seem to have better equipment and more advanced techniques than my previous dentist offices.

I broke my tooth on the way to work, had an emergency repair and root canal a week later. I was very nervous to have to see an endodontist as previous procedures were by dentists. Dr's Shaw and Lee were working together and after the procedure is told the assistant doing x-rays I think I fell asleep! He said he thought I did because he didn't hear a sound from me! That's an amazing compliment to the doctor! I went back to work feeling better than before and all of my coworkers were amazed. I passed a few cards out after my 2nd visit and anticipate their visits soon. I fell asleep during the root canal! I've told everyone, it was the BEST visit ever!

I came in due to a hurting wisdom tooth. I figured we would not even be seen the same day- let alone have all my wisdom teeth pulled, X-rays done, talked over treatment plan and everything done in less than an hour! It was a whirlwind, but I was thrilled with the service. The oral surgery team was such a well oiled machine- seriously the fastest procedure I've ever had done.

My overall experience was a good one, other than the oral surgery, the doctor seem to be in a hurry, while giving the shots, which were very painful. I suggest the use of more patience while administering the shots, as the slower release of the product into the gum tissue, reduces the pain, and burning sensation, while the focus is on the Patients' comfort, not the timing of the procedure.

I miss the office staff that has been there to greet us each time. They made coming to the dentist less stressful for my child when entering the office. Their smiles and calm voices would put our minds at ease. From the moment we walked in the door at our most recent visit, we were just another number. No one knew our name or greeted my child with a smile. This caused her more anxiety and she asked, "when can we leave". I truly hope that when you hire your front end staff that you choose someone that is friendly to children. Otherwise, I feel they may do better working at the adult office where they can be serious. I gave a three smiles only because of the receptionist in the front office.

I was very impressed in every way with my visit. It is very clear to me that this entire practice is very intentional about serving customers with excellence. Jim Collins (author of Good to Great) says that the enemy of 'great' is 'good'. Escondido Smiles is not good - it is indeed great. Simply being good is no where near good enough. That is obvious.
