I had a new hygienist and she only spent 30 minutes on my teeth. My past history is that my cleaning took the better part of an hour. I don't know if this is reason for concern, but I don't understand the significant time difference and wonder what shortcuts might have been taken and did I get the cleaning I should have.

Staff is friendly and informative. Due to my job changing dental providers I've been to several diffent dental groups in San Diego County; I can honestly say that this is one of the best dental experiences that I've ever had.

There was a mix up with an account credit that was promised but disappeared! It was a small credit but I was disappointed that it was not on my account as promised so I did not receive it.

My office visit was great! Dr Choi was so excellent. constructive criticism, tho: I had asked for an estimate 3 times before arriving to my appointment. Once when I originally made the appointment at Dr Nosti's office, once when I called to reschedule the appointment, and once when I confirmed the appointment. I was told I would get one each time, but never received. I know the dr can't fully commit until they do a consult, but each time reception told me they were able to do it and could send one to me. I had no idea going into procedure how much it was going to cost. I would have done whatever Dr Choi had recommended, but I would have liked to be a bit more prepared. I had also confirmed with reception with each appointment that they would be able to perform the procedure that day, even given a time quote the the procedure would probably take 1 to 1 1/2 hours, then told it was a consult appointment when I arrived. But, everyone was very sweet and worked hard to fit me in! Thanks!!!!

The only problem was my appointment was at 4:30 and I was not taken back until 5:00. I guess there was something wrong with the x-ray machine. Finally Gina took me at 5:00 for the cleaning and then the x-rays followed by the exam. I had to leave work early to arrive on time and ended up waiting a half an hour. Other than that, everyone was very nice and did a great job.

From the minute you enter the doors at San Marcos Dental Group and Orthodontics, you are treated like a rock star! Everyone is friendly and personable. Employees drop by your exam room to say hi and to catch up with what's been happening with the family. They offer you a blanket if you're chilly, change the music to something else if you wish, get you a drink of water, or even put on a DVD if you'd like to watch one. You feel that you matter, not just for the sake of "business," but as a person. Not only do they provide excellent dental care, but you are made to feel that you are part of their family. I have recommended them to several friends and will continue to do so in the future. They're the best!

This particular visit in particular was really awesome. Veronica was so nice and great in helping me understand everything. Dr. Patel was sympathetic and gentle. They cared and took action when I had a bad experience with the call center. So happy with the results. Veronica had previously gone out of her way to help me with my billing as well.

I deeply appreciated Dr. Nazarano's consideration of my issues with vertigo. She was patient and kind with me, even standing for part of the procedure so I didn't have to put my head way back. Everyone in the office is always helpful and pleasant to be around, giving smiles and greetings.

I've actually fired a dentist for not starting on me within 45 minutes of what was scheduled. Obviosly he did not know the definition of the word appointment. Thus far, I've had nothing but positive experiences with the San Marcos Dental Group and my hygenist Jannette in particular......she rocks!

I am still unclear as to how much my future costs will be. I am on a fixed income and was not prepared to have cleaning procedures above what is a usual cleaning. My cleanings in the past have been covered totally by my Delta Plan. It may take me awhile to become accustomed to the different billing.

Quentin - great; Gina - is my long lost hygenist (first time in a long time, I felt my teeth were really clean...love the scraping) And Dr. Nosti...well lets say I hunted him down, and found him (again) by complete accident. So very happy to establish a good dental team for care. I am coming from the persepctive of having the same dentist for 40 years, and after his retirement several years ago...I have bounced around. I am home!

I have some feedback, none of which significantly impacted my satisfaction. But I am glad to share my observations. From the unique perspective that dental customers have, we see the cobwebs dangling from the fire sprinklers. In fact, while laying down with your mouth forced open for 3 hours, it's moderately intimidating to see cobwebs on the ceiling. Dr Webber and Dr Lee's assistant (Do not recall her name, sorry). She has beautiful brown eyes and she should protect those eyes with safely glasses (like the doctors wear) whenever she's assisting. So much saliva, blood and bone come flying out of a patients mouth, it's dangerous. I hate to pick on one person, but the same lovely lady would rest her head on her gloved hands while waiting to assist. If she had touched infect blood or saliva with her gloves, she loses the protection by applying it to her face. That's all I have. I had a very positive experience, Thank you!
