Keep doing what your doing. My only suggestion would be to somehow do more marketing, trust me; I am very aware of markrting costs,bc offices like yours in SD are few and far between..... Me begore and everyone I talk to hate their dentists and have a terrible view of the dental industry in SD. I wish everyone could know you office exists so they could enjoy a normal, professional, and comfortable dental experience like they remember from their childhood.

I had a great experience here! The staff was very welcoming and comforting and making a follow up appointment was very simple. The costs of each procedure and the alternatives were outlined clearly. The dentist and the dental assistants made me comfortable and frequently asked how I was doing during the procedure. Once it was completed, their post operative instructions were very clear and they answered all of my questions very well.

Staff were great. Only complaint would be that it would be nice if people said what their role was rather than just their name. Ex I'm Gina and I'm a hygenist or I'm a dental assistant or whatever. I don't think I saw a hygenist but rather an assistant and the dentist but I could have...wasn't identified to me.

Everyone at Mission Valley Dentists was SO GOOD! Jessie was the xray technician and she was really friendly and helpful. Dr Ryggs was very personable and knowledgable. He buffed out an old nasty stain from my bonded tooth in 30 seconds! It was amazing! They are very reasonable altogether. I am thinking about replacing my bonded teeth for crowns eventually but I didn't feel like they were pressuring me or up selling me on their services like a lot of dentists do. The girls at the front desk were also very helpful. They made it clear how much everything would cost ahead of time with my insurance. One also printed out a picture that I requested from my X-rays so I could take home a copy. The best thing about the office is that everything is online, no wasteful paper. And there's tvs in every room :)

I'm a little confused because a dentist I saw here in SD last May told me that I had a cavity, however at this office I was told I didn't have any. This isn't anything negative toward your office, just a bit confused as to why the other dentist told me I had a cavity. Unless it was something missed at your clinic. Overall it was a great experience. I have had my teeth cleaned a little better at other offices, however I was still satisfied.

It's very difficult to find a great Dentist. It was scary coming from Florida to California and having to choose a Dentist without being referred by someone. This is absolutely the best Dentist and dental team out there. They are fast, friendly, take time to get to know you, and give you a truly individualized experience. I have already referred 4 friends and they have already joined. You definitely won't be disappointed.

I had a wonderful experience with Diana. She walked me through the procedure step by step and often checked in to make sure I was doing okay. The cleaning was much shorter than I had anticipated . My teeth and gums felt much better the day after the procedure. Overall, I'm very happy with the procedure and look forward to continuing my treatment at Mission Valley Dentists.

My only poor rating was just due to the Xray and computer not working. I don't like getting xrays to begin with and it was acting up. She had to take the full set twice and then on my right side she did it in one spot about 4x....

The dental staff was fantastic. I love that they showed me what they were doing and explained as they went. Furthermore, they never spoke down to me and that was refreshing. Very professional but with a human touch. My only issue was the chair having to be reclined in such a way that my heart was at a higher level than my head so then it just felt like water-boarding but with the bonus shriek of a dental drill. Higher stools for the staff to use when working on tall patients may be in order. The office/benefits staff seemed like they wanted to be elsewhere on a Friday afternoon. They rushed through the paperwork, billing and never explained any of the options.

I would give 5 smiles, except for the issue of time. My appointment was at 1:00, but I wasn't called in until 1:30, which is a long wait. The dentist did explain later that someone came in with a toothache, which I assume affected the office's overall schedule. Ideally I would have been told about the wait from the beginning so I could plan better--I was trying to minimize the time I was missing work for this appointment. The appointment itself took a long time which has pros/cons. Pro--I got to have a real conversation with the dentist and other staff, which was awesome. Con--I missed more time from work and started to stress about it a little toward the end of the appointment. How long things took was only issue. Other than that, the appointment was perfect, and I have already referred someone to the office.

This was my first visit so there was just xrays, exam and recommended treatment plan. The one issue was the dentist recommending that I have redone dental work done by another dentist. It disappoints me that every time I go to a new dentist, the dentist wants to redo work already done and that is no problem. I suggest that this general practice is not helping the reputation of dentists.

I had a broken tooth and they were able to accommodate me immediately. I'm generally terrified of dentists and thus hadn't been for about 7 years. They were very sensitive to my concerns and made sure I was comfortable through the entire process. Every single staff member was great and I felt I was getting great, hi-tech care. I still have some dental work to complete and will continue to go to Mission Valley Dentists. I can't say enough great things about them!

Are you guys expensive as dentists go? Or, is my insurance not as good as I was told? That is the ONLY complaint/comment I have. My first name is uncommon and so a little to specific for me to want you to use. M. Russel would be fine. But, then people would probably just think it was a family member who wrote the great review.

I am glad I could get a payment plan to fit my budget that was a big factor in choosing this office.

I was so at ease and never made to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. I really appreciated the skillfulness of this highly trained team...felt confident that I finally chose wisely...great experience! First time in 50 years I was able to say I enjoyed going to the Dentist. Thanks to the entire staff!! Regarding the office, I found the atmosphere welcoming, the equipment state-of-the-art, the patient areas comfortable. Everyone took time to ensure I was kept well informed of each step of the process, including what and why things were being done. I was offered a selection of choices on my treatment plan, as well. Many extra comfort items like cups of water, TV in the procedure rooms, sunglasses to protect my eyes, frequent queries regarding my comfort/pain levels...the list is endless. This place rocks!

No more wearing an uncomfortable temporary for 2 weeks while waiting for a lab to complete the work. They answered all my questions & really took time to listen to my concerns. The entire office works so well together, & they all made my visit so pleasant! I can't say enough about how happy I am to have found this office! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
