I have been a patient at Bay Park Dental Group for almost 9 years. I have always loved the Doctotrs, staff and atmosphere of this practice as well as the care I have received. Over the years I have seen changes to the practice. The newest change is in the ownership. Dr. Miller is amazing. I feel so comfortable with her. The staff is really attentive to all of my needs and Dr. Miller is giving me the best care I have ever received. I recommend Bay Park Dental Group and Dr. Miller to everyone I know. This office feels like a family to me.

I had not gone to the dentist in 3-4 years due to dental anxiety that I get from having scary moments at a past dental office I used to go to. I went on yelp to find a great dentist office near me. I found Bay Park Dental and after my first appointment, I new I was going to love it. When I went for my second appointment, I went in very scared and full of anxiety. While sitting in the chair, the dental assistant was so gentle and kind. She comforted me and she took my mind off of everything with some small talk. Then when Dr. Miller came in, I remembered how understanding she was during my first visit for my initial X-rays and cleaning appt. This day I went in for a large filling and crown that I had been avoiding for years due to my fear of dentists. Wow, Dr. Miller. and her team talked me through the entire procedure. They comforted me and understood my fears. I felt so relaxed and at ease. The procedure was quick and went smoothly. I usually would have anxiety knowing I have an upcoming appointment and would end up canceling it at the last minute, but I’m actually excited about finally, for the first time in years, being able to get my dental work done and completed. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in the office again, including the dentist, Dr. Miller !!

I was in dire need of a new look, the same stained teeth since childhood and it only became more embarrassing as I aged. My search led me all Over San Diego and I finally  ended up here! The initial visit was more than pleasant and I left the office knowing I had made the right choice with Kevin and his professional staff. I now have the  perfect smile that I had always envisioned and have a new appreciation for his practice and the wonderful team he has assembled. Photos are attached to show his triumphant work!!

Nicole V. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am about as phobic a dental patient as you could find.  That’s why I delayed getting treatment for WAY too long.  At the suggestion of a friend, I checked out Bay Park, and am I glad I did!  I saw both Dr. Kenny and Dr. Miller, and they were able to keep me calm and comfortable. That isn’t easy. They warned me that one of my cavities was so deep that it might need a root canal, but with some careful work, they managed to fix it without one!  It was SLIGHTLY sensitive for a few days afterward, but they warned me about that before they even touched it, and it was only for a short while.  My suspicion is that anyone who was very sore after treatment might have procrastinated as long as I did. Both Dr. Kenny and Dr. Miller are now my BFFs.

Steve L. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I moved to SD a few years ago and had been searching for a quality dentist ever since.  Finally, a friend recommended Dr. Kenny.  The receptionist was very friendly and helpful and was able to accommodate my crazy schedule.  I was impressed when I arrived by the fun and family atmosphere.  The girls up front were very professional, but friendly and sociable as well. I recently had some pain and was diagnosed with a couple of cavities.  Dr. Miller took good care of me and i haven’t suffered any lingering pain or discomfort.  Needless to say, i was surprised to read Bob’s negative review as I haven’t had any bad experiences. I’m just thankful I finally found my dentist.  I highly recommend Bay Park Dental!

Vivian L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I used to hate coming to the dentist like most people, but that definitely changed since I became a patient here at Bay Park Dental Group!! The doctors and staff here genuinely care about their patients and I feel like I have developed professional relationships with them. They always ask about my family and remember the details from my previous visits and are always on top of making sure I feel comfortable, which I thought was nearly impossible to do at a dental office. Dr. Kenny used to be the main dentist there and I am equally sad and happy that he has retired. Dr. Miller is the new owner of the practice and I am just so happy to have her here! She is the sweetest, very gentle with all my procedures, and makes sure to explain everything going on and being thorough. She is very honest and respectful, so I definitely trust her with taking care of my teeth. The doctors and staff are all really nice people and there is always a light & happy atmosphere when I walk in! That is really important to making a frightening dental experience into a pleasant one. I highly recommend becoming a patient here!

Michelle T. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Miller and her staff are wonderful! I recently saw her as a new patient and she exceeded my expectations. She is knowledgeable, the sweetest down to earth person, and made the whole experience enjoyable (I usually have anxiety at the dentist). She explained the validity of her recommendations to me in detail and I could tell she had the health of my teeth in her best interest from the beginning. Parking is easy and the front staff is very friendly and helpful. The office is clean, has a bright pleasant atmosphere and a nice selection of refreshments/magazines in the lobby. Plus, they give you a sweet goodie bag to go home! I would recommend this office to anyone who wants quality dental care (which is very hard to come by nowadays). I have definitely found my new dentist.

I arrived for my cleaning appt and was greeted by Debbie who did some great work beforehand working out my insurance coverage. I was in the chair within 2 min. Kelly my Hygentist was very pleasant, personable and professional. She did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. My visit with Dr. Miller was also exceptionally pleasant. She did an oral inspection and sent me on my way. The entire staff was great as was my 1 hr. visit. New dentist for me, and same wonderful service as I was used to from this dental group.

Johnny B. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the spot if you are looking for professionalism and friendly staff. My experience was so great, now my wife wants to make an appointment. Dr. Miller was wonderful making sure I was comfortable while she preformed Magic on my teeth to restore my smile. My teeth have never looked better! Looking forward to my next visit. Thank you Bay Park Dental Group!

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


This dentist office is the best! Dr. Miller and DHA Bea are amazing! Dr. Miller filled some cavities for my 4 year old, and she did a good job keeping my son relaxed and distracted. I loved the wiggle jiggle song which they used to distract him from getting numbed. I was able to be in the room with my child the whole time. This made me feel comfortable as a parent. All the staff are friendly, patient, and knowledgeable in what they do. Thank you for your A++ consumer service.

Dr. Miller and her colleagues always provide amazing customer service . I have received treatment from their practice for about 5 years plus . Now , my son who just turned 18 is a new client for them . I am thrilled that Dr. Miller and her colleagues are part of me and my family’s healthy smiles !

Jeremiah S. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tessa Miller was great and so was the rest of the staff. Very friendly and thorough with the exam and the cleaning. I was referred by a friend and I will be doing the same. 5 stars all the way. They even give you a free Quip toothbrush set with your first visit!

Katarina T. from Park West, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Miller and her team are amazing!!! I recently moved to San Diego and had to find a dentist. I myself looked on yelp and saw bay park dental had great reviews so I went ahead and made an appointment and was not disappointed! Dr. Miller is an amazing dentist. She is very informative, friendly, and caring. Her staff was also great. They always make you feel so welcomed and were very caring as well. I would recommend them to anyone. It’s not easy to find a dentist you can trust and a wonderful staff along with that. Thank you guys for being so great!

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


My wife and I had our first appointment today (new patient) and could not have been happier with our decision to go here.  Everything was safe and clean, the staff extremely friendly and professional.  We’ve moved around CA the past few years having different dentists but Bay Park Dental Group has been the best by far.  If you’re looking for a dentist in San Diego, we 100% recommend!

Haerin K. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Bay Park Dental Group. I had a problematic tooth that my previous dentist couldn’t treat but then I found Dr. Miller. She was so quick and efficient! The whole procedure including the anesthetic took only a few minutes. And now I’m sensitive free! Thank you Dr. Miller 🙂

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


Went in for a cleaning and unexpectedly needed a filling. Was thinking about how to schedule this in with work (may have simultaneously frowned), The staff picked up on it, and asked if I wanted them to do the filling during the same visit. They checked, and had availability! I was the last appointment of the day and it was late….so they could have easily requested for me to come back another time. They really went the extra mile! Dental services were high quality as well.

Had to do a routine cleaning in the middle of the pandemic. No easy feat. Bay Park made the whole process very smooth and pleasant! Loved Karen and Dr. Miller! They are both very good and gentle at their work and are personable kind caring people. Found a new dentist and I’m sticking to it! Also, WHAT I got a quip brush?! YAAASSS that was a nice lil something something too. Thanks y’all!!!! See y’all in 6.

I don’t know how anyone could out do what this office does. The team here owns that welcome when you first step into their facility and keeps that smile bright and happy every time you come back. The communication here is great and they’ll always check up on you after every appointment. I have received the greatest customer service here and I have grown very confident about my smile because of the knowledge I get from them. No service is ever done without them explaining why they’re doing it, how they’re doing it and what the pros and cons are for it. I was recommended by several people to give this place a chance and since then I have recommended my own group of people and we’re all very happy. Bay Park Dental is located right off the 5 freeway and has some of the most beautiful views of the bay. They keep this place clean, friendly and welcoming. I’m Robert Reed and I approve this message.

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


At my other dentist they messed up my teeth with a filling so I moved over to Bay Park Dental where I had a really great experience. I was worried about my bottom teeth moving and consulted with Dr. Miller and Karen. Even though she explained that invisalign or other correctors were an option. I was worried about the price, and Dr. Miller was really understanding when I told her that it wasn’t an option for me right now, and didn’t try and force a sale on me like other doctors have. She even said she could help me with a payment plan when I was ready.

Lisa L. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


After my dentist retired I put off finding a new dentist for too long.  I knew it was way past time but I was nervous about going in after several years of neglect.  I was told about Bay Park Dental from a friend so I made an appointment.  Sure enough, I need a lot of work.  The one thing I liked most is they didn’t lecture me about my neglect, my old dentist like to point out my flaws!  They recommended a plan to get my teeth heathy again and explained the process.  Didn’t sound like fun but I knew it was necessary.  My surprise was that is was just a little uncomfortable, not painful at all.  The worse was the novacaine.  I had a LOT of work done and numb lips for a couple of hours was nothing compared to what I had imagined.  Still a lot of work to do, but this is a quality dentist office with nice people that know what they are doing.  Highly recommend.

I had my tooth pulled in June 2020. No pain at all. They even put my tooth in a treasure box. So cute and so caring. They followed up with checks 2 weeks, 1 month, and 3 months. Very thorough. They are also very gentle. I asked if I should do implant. They have a specialist right there and came to see me in the same appointment. Then told me no need, I don’t use that tooth that much, save the money since I’m furloughed. They are so honest! I do 4 cleanings a year, had 4 wisdom tooth pulled, 1 regular tooth pulled, and two gum surgeries before I met Dr. Miller. Sorry for the details but I’m a knowledge expert dental patient after going through all that! The receptionist is very caring, flexible to accommodate appointments and calls you to follow up and explain thoroughly the billing options. I love this place!

Melissa Carver (Source: Google)


This was my first time here and let them know of my previous not so great experience of a dentist near by and assured me this would not be the same. The receptionists are very polite and welcoming. I met Dr. Miller and she did a thorough review of my teeth and of what work needs to be done while being genuinely concerned as opposed to just wanting the money like some dentists. I told her my concerns of my TMJ and she helped with suggestions on how future procedures will go. I am no longer scared of the dentist thanks to this dental group! Dr. Miller was even kind enough to send me welcoming card a week later and wishing me luck on planning my wedding! My fiancé and I have found a new dentistry and only 2 min. From home!

Modesto Z. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


First time patient here at Bay Park Dental. They took their precautions with all the covid which is great. Once I stepped in they definitely took care of my teeth as I had stepped foot inside a dentist office in quite some months. Both were very gental and caring about my teeth. Expressed what I needed to do to take care of my teeth better. I have definitely my dentist for years to come. Also even willingly to work with you on payments with the different procedures.

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


I am going to start off by saying I am the BIGGEST baby when it comes to dental work.  I searched and shopped around for a good dentist for a very long time……My roomie found Bay Park Dental and I knew it was a good fit.  I would call the team at the office the DREAM TEAM!  Super sweet and they are SO compassionate. I would say I have a difficult mouth as there is a lot of work to be done.  But let me tell you… Dr. Miller will coach you along the way.  She has listened to me cry and helped me find a solution to my issues. We are just at the first stages of my treatment and I am very happy to be with them.  Thank you Dr. Miller and team!

Billy H. from Michigan (Source: Yelp)


The team at Bay Park Dental Group is the best place to go to in San Diego. When I walked into the door, Debbie was friendly and organized. I usually don’t like going to the dentist, but my experience here eased my fears. I would highly recommend Dr. Gandhi for any children that need dental work as he is very patient and enthusiastic. Dr. Miller’s chairside manner was very professional and friendly. If you want a great dental experience, I would highly recommend Bay Park Dental Group.

Gregory W. (Source: Zocdoc)


Visited Dr Miller and team as a new patient and feel very pleased with my choice. As other reviews say, Dr. Miller is VERY nice and I found her to be very professional and knowledgable. The consultation and cleaning was thorough and I felt comfortable and in good hands during my entire visit. I would have no problem recommending Dr. Miller and team to my friends or acquaintances in the future.

Brandon S. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would just like to say that I have been a patient here for eight years now and would never think to leave for another office. I always feel welcome like I’m apart of the family, not just another number on the daily agenda. Yes things have changed recently when it comes to the new owner of the practice but I feel things are changing in a positive and successful manner to better the future of the practice . I feel like some of the negative reviews are from patients that may feel entitled to a certain way because they have been a patient for many years. Don’t let that negativity take away from you deciding whether or not to become a patient of this office, cause I assure you that you will not be disappointed in the service you will receive from their excellent staff.

Dr. Miller is really thorough and compassionate. She did an amazing job with my fillings. She also called to check how I was doing after getting my new trays for the clear correct as they were really tight when I was at the office. It’s never pleasant to get work done on your teeth but I trust Dr. Miller and a dentist like her is hard to find.

Chris Uhen (Source: Google)


I am not an easy patient-not fearful but I just don’t like pain-like most of us! I needed a pretty big filling which meant lots of drilling but Dr and her assistant Jessica kept me distracted and did an amazing job getting and keeping me comfortable for the entire appointment. I know they were busy based on the full parking lot but they didn’t act rushed and it all went great. No loner numb and all is well- Thanks guys!

Andrea R. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to see Dr. Miller today for the first time. I had not been to the dentist in over 4 years due to dental anxiety if you will. It’s sad because I’ve always had dental insurance, but wouldn’t go. Long story short, as soon as I walked in, the atmosphere was delightful. Everyone there was friendly and welcoming. The dental hygienist was amazing too. She was gentle with the X-rays and cleaning. Dr. Miller came in and started small talk. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease. She walked me through everything she was doing. I had so many questions and I never felt rushed. The woman taking care of the insurance part was very knowledgeable and helpful. I’d definitely recommend this office. You won’t be disappointed!!

Jen V. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


The dentists at Bay Park Dental are nothing short of amazing. My husband & I both see them, as well as our kids who are 14, 10 & 5.  I have generalized anxiety, which gets pretty severe just thinking about going to the dentist. Dr. Louie is very comforting, patient and encouraging. Today, she literally took me from tears of fear to tears of joy because I was able to get some work I’d been putting off done. Most of my work has been done by Dr. Louie, but I have also seen Dr. Miller & Dr. Susie. Dr. Miller is very gentle and has a calm demeanor, which are both reassuring qualities for a dentist to have! Dr. Susie is always so cheerful and did a previous root canal for me. I had an endodontist compliment what a nice job she did when x-raying the tooth next to it. They are a top notch practice, from the front desk to the hygienists to the dentists!

I have been in SD for two years and have seen quite a few dentists, not being very happy with my experiences. I had my first visit with Bay Park in July 2020. I saw Dr. Sussi first and Dr. Miller second. The RDAs are SO sweet. Debbie at the front is great. The doctors were wonderful. Explained everything very clearly and efficiently. Their demeanor was beyond my expectations. I finally found a dental group I’m happy with. Definitely recommend them to anyone needing great dental care with awesome bedside manner.

Today was my first appointment and I was very impressed. The office staff as well as the doctor that did the cleaning are very pleasant and sweet. They seem to really care about making people comfortable. I was referred by a relative and plan to refer anyone that asks me for an excellent dental office. My teeth feel so clean and healthy. This was the best teeth cleaning I have ever received in my 56 years.If you try them you will not be disappointed.

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


I’ve been at this dental office for the last few years and I highly recommend. I usually hate the dentist but their office is fun. They have TVs on the ceiling and headphones for patients. The office staff is friendly and remembers their patients. I usually see dr. Kenny but on my most recent visit I saw dr. Miller and she was awesome and thorough. Overall great.

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


The staff was very friendly! I had horrible pain, they fit me in that day. I had an infection that needed antibiotics before they could pull the tooth. People have horrible stories of having a wisdom tooth pulled, I was very anxious. The Dr was very calming and friendly. I was in and out in 30 minutes! Yucky tooth gone! They did not do any unnecessary work. I am waiting for my insurance to kick in, but I will definitely be back. Thank you so much!.
