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.

In all business transactions there are bound to be missteps. After I had finished my consultation with the Dentist, a plan was set for my care that day. One of the items that was discussed with me, which I agreed upon and paid for, was not completed during my visit. I would have never known, but the Benefits Coordinator called me after my visit to bring this to my attention. She was very accommodating by giving me options to rectify the situation, which I appreciate very much. The integrity of the office and staff, is foremost, the reason I will refer others here.

The wait to have my teeth cleaned and polished was about 30 minutes after the dentist talked about my oral health. They explained that because i have a uncommonly healthy mouth, it would take a bit longer because they stagger the hygienist schedule for about 30 minutes in between instead of 10-15 which is how long mine took. Well it took even longer than they indicated so my appointment was a total of almost 2 hours for a healthy mouth. Why am i penalized?

After 58 yrs. I do not dread getting my teeth repaired and now even cosmetically cared for. Thank you!

The office, and the MD have been UNBELIEVABLY patient with me, and in trying to explain a "plan" , understand that I, do not understand, what I will be able to do . I don't show my teeth when I smile, normally, but I might learn to if I stay with these people long enough! I'm actually astounded at the pleasantness of the whole dental group, as a group of people who not only work very professionally with each other, but have included me in their process!

My overall experience was delightful. Every member of the team was friendly from when I first walked through the door until I left. I have experienced awful dental visits previous to this visit, so I am prepared to ask all necessary questions (to the point of annoyance) until I fully understand the process, procedure, cost, etc. I make sure that I am never blind sided by any of the former. The staff at Escondido Smiles office was very patient with explaining everything to me and making sure I clearly understood everything! I couldn't have left feeling better about my visit and my future visits. Thank you :)

Please ensure your staff are at the front of office when business hours start. I arrived just before my 07:30 appointment to a completely empty front office (two other patients were there and had also not been greeted or checked in). We waited over 5 minutes before I decided to go find someone, and found ALL the staff chit-chatting in a back room! I had to say there were people waiting before they started moving, then 6-8 staff members all came up to the front at the same time. No apologies or explanation given, either.

Wonderful! We went for her very first appointment, she was nervous going in but from the moment she walked in she was comfortable. She did not shed 1 tear, in fact she walked out excited to go back. The hygienist showed her everything first, made her comfortable before doing anything and then when it was time for the dr she came in right away, there was no waiting in the room and getting nervous time! Just loved the staff and the experience, easy appointment Thank you!

Everything went very well, the only time I thought something was off was when the male dental assistant would have been allowed to be alone with my daughter during x-rays and cleaning if her grandma had not insisted on going back with her during her visit. He was very nice and professional but she is only 4 and things like this should be noticed when dealing with minors, especially when the cleaning and exam rooms are private.

All employees that I encountered on my visit were genuinely nice and made me feel very comfortable. At times I get anxiety about going to the dentist due to past experiences but once I met the receptionist and the dentist my anxiety went away. The dentist was very personable and wanted to know me as an individual. Building relationships with your clients shows effort, sincerity, and care. I have found my dentist office and will continue to praise the employees for their friendliness. Thank you!

The staff are always friendly and nice. While the recommendations for care have some times been costly (which is just part of dental care), I have followed the advice given and seen a great improvement in my dental health so I always do whats recommended. I love that the staff are sensitive to how comfortable I am or am not. They do everything to make sure my care is as comfortable as it can be. Often, the worst dental experiences I have had are with dentists who are rough with my mouth and just don't care, making it incredibly painful and uncomfortable. Escondido Smiles is quite the opposite which is why I don't dread going to the dentist now. :) It's hard to find a good dentist so I always recommend this office to my friends. All around great care!
