Such a blessing to find a GREAT dental office. I tried to catch on with a dentist closer to home in the South Bay, but no luck. Gold diggers. Unlike the profiteers, I found Torrey Pines Dental Arts to be caring, competent, and more interested in my oral health than their yacht payments! Saving money at the dentist is never the first goal--that of course is competence in a modern, safe setting, and they deliver on all counts. My dentist is Dr. Terranova, and my hygienist is Amy Gilbert, but I'll wager every professional in that practice is just as good!

I never thought I'd see the day that I'd enjoy a trip to the dentist! The folks at Torrey Pines Dental Arts are top-notch. I appreciate the level of service that this group delivers, they make you feel comfortable in that dreaded chair, and the thing is, it always feels like they genuinely enjoy what they're doing. I highly recommend Torrey Pines Dental for anyone that dreads the dentist. I promise you'll feel differently after one visit.

Wonderful staff and great office. I was SOOOO nervous about getting my wisdom teeth out. They got me on the schedule with two days notice, took all of my questions in my consultation (I had so many), and the made the procedure quick and painless. Everyone was so kind to me and made me feel super comfortable. So thankful I found them for this procedure. Will be going back to them for regular exams after this experience now.
