I just had to go online and brag about how good my teeth look. Thanx dr teal they look awesome. I get so many complements on them everyday. I'm glad I had them done. Paula Ramos the office manager did a great job working with me and making sure my insurance would pay for my dental treatment. Thank you guys. more

great place 8/18/2011

I like how i was treated at the front desk. The receptionist had all my insurance information ready. I didnt have to wait around. They did my exam and cleaning and it was a great experience.. more

Excellent Experience 11/22/2010

I have a fear of the dentist and put off going for the past 10 years +. Finally made the appt and needed a considerable amount of work. Dr. Murphy was very good. He made sure that I had a good experience because I had told him of my fear of dentist. He explained each procedure and was sure that I was numb before he began working. I had a deep cleaning; a root canal/crown, cavity filling and 1 tooth extraction. He really took good care of me. The office worked with my on my payments especially at the beginning of the holiday season. They are a five star office! more

Very nice dentist 11/14/2010

I just got a cleaning by Dr. Meledez and he was very gentle. I have had cleaning before by hygiensts and my gums ached for days. This was great. The staff was nice but they sometimes seemed rushed. This is my first visit and I think I go back for my next cleaning. Very clean office too. more

My teeth cleaning was great 7/1/2010

I've been a patient of plaza dental for more than 6 years and I think they have a great staff. For the past two years Dr. Murphy has done my cleanings and I've never had a problem with him or the front office. I would recomend my friends to see Dr. Murphy. more

Good Dentistry 7/13/2009

This dentistry is under new ownership. They still have their nice office staff, but have really fixed things up. I recently had work done by Dr. Phan and she is awesome! She does great work and she's very informative! more

Unhappy 2/13/2009

They misquoted me for a procedure due to an error on their part, not realizing that "specialists" are not covered by my insurance. Of course, my procedure was recommended to be taken care of that day, and lucky for me, there was an in-house specialist on duty. I was not informed that the insurance would not cover his fee, and was misquoted a fee based on what the insurance would pay if a general dentist did the procedure. What is wrong with this office? I chose this office based on having driven by it many times. I live in Carlsbad, and it was convenient. Also, my initial visit for X-Rays was decent (aside from a rude receptionist). I decided to get my root canal done there. They quoted me a rate, and had me sign documents saying I would pay it. I did pay in full. Then a month later, they come back and say I owe another $400 because the procedure was done by a "specialist." Why they didn't think to figure this into the fee presented to me before ($1200) was that "they didn't know." They are a dentists office. They deal with insurance all the time. How could they have overlooked this? Then, after having paid the balance over the telephone and requesting a receipt, it took them 3 weeks, to send me another bill. I called, and they said that I had no balance due and the document was not correct. The woman on the phone seemed irritated that I was calling. She told me that she would send me the receipt showing payment of the second fee, and I'm still waiting for it, 2 weeks later. I will be changing dental offices to somewhere with a friendly staff, with professionalism and integrity that I can trust. more

Horrible! 9/17/2007

Buyer beware! Shady insurance practices, really horrible dentistry and awful administration. Short story : They missed three cavities that were confirmed by three other dentists, was RUDE to me when I insisted they check again, they upped my level of care when they realized I had insurance and dealing with their administrative ppl was like chasing my own tail. If I could fit my whole experience into this box, I would. You can read my whole exp here : (not spam.. really is the whole story) I wouldn't recommend them to my worst enemy. Ok. Maybe my worst. more

Good Dentist 11/14/2005

This dentist does a great job with my cleanings and exams. They do take their time with their patients. The only drawback is that every time I have an appointment the wait time is anywhere from 30 min. to an hour. I have taken my 6 yr old dauhter there and they do not let the parent into the back, which sometimes is uncomfortable. more
