In the middle of the pandemic scare, my crown fell off. I called Dr Manolescu’s office that day. I got an appoint the next day, and Dr Manolescu and team evaluated the situation thoroughly. The crown was glued back in place, and my bite feels very comfortable again.

Such a great team and a wonderful environment. I honestly hate and fear the dentist, I absolutely suffer from dental anxiety. This office is exceptional. No smell dentist office here, and the location is very relaxing.  Everyone at the office has been super patient, kind and knowledgeable about their trade. I was so happy that I found Dr. Adina and her awesome team. If you are not happy with your dentist I urge you to try Dr. Adina, you will love her!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Manolescu for the past 3 years. I can attest that she is an excellent dentist who makes sure her patients are comfortable and get the best dentistry she can offer. Also, the staff is very accommodating and the office is stunning and clean.

I always leave the office feeling well cared for and listened to.  No matter how nervous or in pain I am my situation is always improved by the constant attention that I received by Dr. Adina.   My children actually like going to the dentist.  It does not get any better than that!  Paul S.

My visit to Dr. Manolescu was wonderful, the office is beautiful. Thank you to Dr. Manolescu and all of her staff for not giving me any judgement for not coming to the dentist in almost 2 years due to leaving my teeth on the back burner while raising my two children.

Bart E. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to quite a few dentists over the years, and Dr. Adina Manolescu is by far the best I have ever had.  She truly is an amazing dentist, very talented and gentle with incredible manual dexterity.  In my last visit she repaired a small cavity in about 15 minutes!  Also has a great supporting office staff, extremely efficient and polite.

Adina Manolescu it’s my new dentist for life,She has been my dentist for a good period of time and she did really good job.I have very sensitive teeth but she always manage to do best and painless compare to other places I went.I highly recommend her without hesitation to anyone who need help and a good dentist.

Dr. Adina and her staff are AMAZING! Very welcoming and great with walking you through everything they are doing. The office is modern and very clean. I’ve had some bad experiences in the past at other places and was worried about going to a new dentist… I don’t think I could have had a better more comfortable experience.

This dentist is much more than just a dentist! This is the loveliest office; the most skillful dentist and most organized, caring staff all the way around. I have complicated dental issues that require good technical skill-check. But Dr Manolescu is warm, friendly, careful, thorough and truly cares about her patients and their smiles. I am so glad that my periodontist referred me to this wonderful practice!

I was referred to Dr.Manolescu from my children’s dentist (Dr.Toppi @ Lil Smiles–amazing by the way) . I initially just made a cleaning appointment but then of course I get a toothache.They were able to see me the next day and the experience couldn’t of been better. I have been in the dental field for over 15 years so I have been around a lot of dentist’s and this office was wonderful. The office is very clean and up to date on technology, the staff was so nice and made me feel so welcome. Dr.Manolescu is so sweet and very easy to talk to.I had to be referred to a specialist for my toothache and they took care of me every step of the way, even getting me in with the specialist that afternoon. I’m so relieved to have found a dentist that I know I can trust! Thank you Dr.Manolescu and your amazing staff!

Toby H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Lovely people, friendly and efficient. Dr. Is very careful and particular about her work, and seems to have excellent people skills as well as dental skills. I don’t like a visit to a dental office,  it they make it as pleasant as possible.

Today’s visit was another fantastic experience at the dentist. The music helped relax me during my visit. Dr. Manolescu and Hailey worked flawlessly as a team! Thank you both!

Carly T. rfom San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


No surprise that Dr. Manolescu is rated so highly. The office is super clean, and the entire staff is friendly and attentive. The team uses the latest equipment and send text/email notifications so you don’t miss an appt. I have never been at ease when having dental work done, but this experience was good and I highly recommend Dr. Manolescu.

So happy I found Dr. Manolescu! I had my first appointment today for an exam and cleaning. The office is clean and new, and everyone who works there is very kind and friendly. She walks you through the steps as she is working on you so it really feels good knowing exactly what is going on. Most dentists I have been to just work on you and then you get up thinking “OK what did you do?”… Happy I found my new dentist and I highly recommend her and this office!

Phillip M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dentist and her staff are constantly concerned about a pleasant experience for a patient who is getting dental work done.  The results speak for themselves. You may have seen ads on TV about patients pleased with great dental results but when you open your mouth the whole world wants to know how well you take care of your teeth.  Dr. Manolescu will make you want to show the world every smile every minute of the day because of your great looking teeth.

Dr. Adina and her staff consistently go above and beyond any expectations. I currently live in Naples, Italy but still come back to San Diego twice a year for dental care with Dr. Adina. I love how they actually care about you and fully explain everything they are doing throughout the visit. Simply amazing!

Stephen S. from Chula Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t love going to the dentist, but I always feel taken care of and respected at Dr. Manolescu’s office.  The staff is friendly and caring, and I never feel like I’m being upsold.  I feel like the work I’ve had done is always the best quality.  I highly recommend Dr. Manolescu.

This is the one dentist I really don’t mind coming too. Super thorough, clean, and their whole staff is incredibly nice. They walk you through everything they are doing so you never feel uncomfortable or unsure. I highly recommend Dr. Adina!

Dr Adina always make my experience a pleasant one. She and her staff keeps patients calm and reassured that the procedures are safe and professionally applied. They always keep you informed and have your best interest in mind.

Marc C. from Rancho Santa Fe, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to this office for 20+ years. As always, service and quality of care is awesome. Staff is great and Dr, Manolescu is very caring and always concerned about your needs. If you have had a bad experience or don’t like going to a dentist, I strongly recommend that you give this office a try. I rarely do reviews, have no vested interest and would strongly recommend the team.

First visit to a dentist in many many years. Couldn’t have been more happy with the service I got from everyone at the office. The office itself is very clean and the staff is professional. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of top quality dental care.

This was the BEST dental experience I’ve ever had! I’ve gone to the dentist since I was a child, so I’ve been to a lot of dentist offices! This one was so welcoming, friendly, full of helpful information, and truly provided a wonderful first time experience! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Manolescu’s office, especially for anyone who is looking for a pleasant, professional, and 5 STAR experience!

My family has been going to Dr.Manolescu for over 5 years. Over the years Dr.Manolescu and her staff have been kind, efficient, and understanding. They work diligently to coordinate with your schedule, your insurance, and budget. Her hygienists are gentle, fast, and have great bedside manners. Her use of the latest technology is a breath of fresh air, I especially appreciate immediate xray technology and sonic cleanings. Most of all, my kids adore her. They have been patients since they were 8 years old and 3 years old. She is great with everyone in our family and I never feel like she is suggesting unnecessary work. I have trusted Dr.Manolescu for years, and I look forward to continuing with her and her amazing staff for years to come.

Everyone who works there is very kind and welcoming. I’ve been going there for years and now my daughter is too! They explain everything thoroughly and make it an easy process.
Thanks Adina and team!

Jane M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just love Dr. Adina Manolescu and her entire staff.  They are not only professional and knowledgeable, but kind and fun too. They treat you like family. I used to dread going to a new dentist but Dr. Adina and her staff have changed that for me. Thank you.

Best choice in the area. The office staff is terrific! The hygienists are very careful and patient. It takes a lot of the hesitation out of going to the dentist. The environment is really focused on YOU, and not the next person. I’ve been to at least four Dentists in the San Diego area and Dr. Manolescu and staff have been the best experience.

Linda C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very happy with Dr. Adina and her great staff.  Had my first ever “scaling and deep cleaning” and was very apprehensive.  Surprisingly, it was not bad, and every step of the process was explained.  The technician was genuinely concerned about my comfort and made me confident about the process.  I am new to this dental practice, and highly recommend it.

Larry D. from Mid-City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to a lot dentists in my life, Dr. Adina stands out in many ways, from her technical skill to genuinely caring for her patients. She will take the time to make sure all procedures have the best outcome possible. Her office is spotless and employees all seem to enjoy working there. Can’t recommend her enough.

Dr. Manolescu is attentive, gentle, thorough, and doesn’t push unnecessary procedures. Her staff is also friendly and professional. I’ve had a couple different hygienists clean my teeth there, and both have done a great job. I really appreciate that this place tells you up front how much procedures will cost; there are no surprises when you pay your bill. I highly recommend this dentist and her staff!

Dr. Manolescu and her staff are absolutely excellent. Not only do they do a wonderful job, they explain and educate you as the patient throughout the visit. Would recommend to anyone looking for excellent general dental care.

Theresa P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have always hated the Dentist!  Scared since I was a kid. She makes you feel comfortable.  Constantly asking how you are and if you are comfortable.  No pain at all!! My kids and my Dad all see her now and we all love her. The other thing I like is that even if there is an issue, she talks with you about it and 9 times out of 10, there is no urgency or pressure to get the work done if it isn’t an emergency.

Kimberly B. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Manolescu and her staff are all very nice and understanding of someone who is a white knuckle dental patient.  Did not scold me for my lack of dental care.  Instead they made me feel good about the whole experience.  Plan to make her office my dentist because of her gentleness, friendliness and welcoming attitude.  Best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist!  Very positive!
