Hear from patients about our 5-star dental care

“Wowww! Where was this dentist's office when I was a child?! They were so professional and patient with my son. She explained every step to him to make sure he had a great first-time experience at the dentist. I’ve never seen him warm up to anyone so quickly. He can’t wait to go back and also made sure that we purchased the flavor toothbrush and toothpaste flavors they recommended. By far the best dentist office I’ve ever been to, ESPECIALLY for a child!”

— Khatol S.

“We are very happy with the service. It’s nice finding a place that accepts and understands ALL different types of children. My son told me that he likes San Diego Dental Specialists much better than his previous dentist. We will be back and we do recommend San Diego Dental Specialists!”

— Natalie G.

“Jan was amazing and it was nice to have someone so caring for my first patient visit. Dr. Amodeo spent a lot of time with me and I appreciated the care he took to answer my questions! My son has been a patient since he was about 4. I’m happy they also serve adults now.”

 Laurel A.

“All 4 of my children have received the greatest care and treatments from San Diego Dental Specialists! We are eager to recommend them to any families looking for quality providers!”

 Bethany Z.

“I’m always so pleased with the quality of service by this dental firm — so pleasant, easy to work with, competent, and reasonably priced. I feel very confident that my dental needs are being met by San Diego Dental Specialists and its network of other experts when referrals have been necessary.”

 Blake I.

“The staff and doctor were so understanding and accommodating. My baby was asleep in the back of my car and they came out to go over my older daughter's exam and cleaning with me. This really was going above and beyond and I really appreciate it.”

 Brianna S.

“My husband, our two kids (aged 3 and 6.5), and I just had our first appointments here, and it could not have been better! Every single person we interacted with was so helpful and attended to our various needs perfectly! Both of the kids left very happy, and the adult care was incredible too.”

 Alexa H.

“We initially brought our 3-year-old son for his dental care and were so impressed with the care and patience that they had with him that my husband and I ended up scheduling appointments for ourselves too. Every time that we call or come into the office, we are greeted warmly and made to feel welcome. Everyone that we’ve encountered has been wonderful and so professional, both in the general dentistry and the orthodontic departments. All treatment recommendations are explained thoroughly and they don’t try to push unnecessary services. I highly recommend this office to anyone in search of quality dental care.”

 Lizeth Q.

“I have been going here for almost 20 years, ever since I had teeth as a child. I’ve always had a good experience with their dentists and orthodontists. They are very caring and gentle and they got me excited to brush my teeth as a kid!”

 Maya H.

“I can honestly say that I look forward to my appointments every single time 🙂 I have been coming here my whole life and they take excellent care of me and my family. My brother is neurodivergent and handicapped, and they treat him with the utmost care making sure to accommodate him and staying patient. The staff is friendly and they enjoy catching up with their patrons and clients. You can't go wrong with choosing this establishment for your care.”

 Shannon I.

“Staff and dentists are wonderful. They have a great way with kids, showing patience and an ability to put my children at ease. Our entire experience was great from start to finish.”

 Stephen M.

“We have been coming here for dental and orthodontic treatment. Both specialties provide high-quality service. Both dental and orthodontic services are very gentle and thorough. We received Invisalign treatment, we are very happy with the results so far and appreciate the open line of communication. Highly recommend!”

 Gabrielle F.

“We had a first appointment for an orthodontic consult for my young adult developmentally disabled daughter, who can be quite challenging behaviorally. From the first moment we stepped foot in the door, it was a positive experience. Everything from the level of respect and care to the orthodontist himself, who is informed, humble, patient, and considerate... just one of the best experiences with a medical provider in my daughter's 25 years of life. We are definitely coming here for orthodontia despite it being a 45-minute drive from my home!”

 Jennifer M.

“We have been taking our 3 kids here for 12 years. Our youngest has extreme anxiety so at times he just doesn’t feel like going or staying. They accommodated us today in a private room where I could also sit next to him. The experience made him comfortable and gave him the confidence to come back again for a second appointment. Accommodating our son was a huge help. Thank you.”

 Zeky T.

“They are the best pediatric dentists. All of my kids love going to see Dr. Lam and Dr. Amodeo. Always a positive experience.”

 Nicole D.
