’ve been going to Dr. Bell for 20+ years and the entire office has always went above and beyond. My dental health began in poor shape, and now it has significantly improved thanks to Dr. Bell. I have also had the opportunity to be consulted by Dr. Brandon Bell during a few visits, and he is fantastic as well. Dr. Bell’s office is highly recommended by me and I will Always remain a patient there.

Dr. Bell and staff are incredible. I recently had an old filling chip on me while on vacation. They took me right away and Dr. Bell immediately fixed it. He put me at ease and he had me in and out the door within 30 minutes. I highly recommend this practice. They also do a WONDERFUL job on teeth cleaning. All around great.

By far the best dentist in North County! If you’re looking for an HONEST dentist, Dr. Bell and his team are the best. I’ve been a patient for several years and the service is always excellent. Everyone is happy and knowledgable. Highly recommend.

There is no better dental practice in North County San Diego and probably all of San Diego.  Both Dr’s Bell (young and a little older) are the best in the business.  Their staff is very professional and friendly and we have been going here for over 20 years and will continue till we kick the proverbial bucket.  The only downside is they are so good and so popular it sometimes takes a while to get an appt. for a cleaning.  But, if you have a dental problem, they will get you in ASAP.

I have been seeing Dr. Geoffrey Bell for a decade, and I completely trust his judgment and skill. I had been terrified of dentists as a child due to some extremely painful experiences. I have needed extensive dental work for most of my life, and so it was a relief to me to find a dentist who not only really knows his field and is very fast and skillful, but who is also very mindful of making sure that his patients get the maximum amount of comfort and pain avoidance during the experience. Another thing I appreciate about his service is that he doesn’t recommend procedures that aren’t necessary…if he tells you that you need it, you do. And finally, I just had an opportunity to see him during the pandemic this week. He has taken extraordinary precautions to avoid Covid-19 infection, and his staff are well-versed in protective measures. I highly recommend him and hope he never retires!

I have had three visits with Bell Family Dentistry and each one has been an excellent experience. They are professional, gentle and kind. There’s a great warm vibe to the practice. I particularly like my dental hygienist, Jennifer! Again, a perfect balance between professionalism and warmth.

Timothy H. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Brandon Bell is a Great Dentist, very caring about the comfort of his patients and very gentle, very thorough, and does good work, I would  know because I am a retired DDS. The office staff is very nice and courteous, great experience, I would recommend him highly.

Father and son Family operation. Staff is beyond nice and friendly. Dentists (I’m going to the son) are competent and highly experienced with 20+ years in the business and still manage to make you feel more like a friend than just another nameless customer. Not salesy. Not pushy. Very nice facilities with Surfing Decor all around . Simple example of the level of service they provide to a customer: Because of calendar problem (on my side) I showed up on the right date but at the wrong time. They managed to still fit me in without a blink. Just VERY nice, friendly and professional people. Probably the best and highest service to customer that I ever came across from a dentist firm/business.

Dr. Brandon Bell is a Great Dentist, he is very gentle and very concerned with the comfort of his patients, he is very thorough and does great work, I would know as I am a retired DDS, the staff is very friendly and caring. A great office and a great experience I would highly recommend Dr. Bell

Maggie Kuzman (Source: Yelp)


Best office ever! Very honest, professional & friendly. Their dental work is excellent & in my experience they have never recommended any unnecessary work. They take the time to discuss what needs to be done & everyone is willing to answer questions so that you feel comfortable. All of the hygienists are wonderful & gentle. I also love that they give back to the community & are well established in Carlsbad. Because they are an excellent office they are a busy office. They may not have a cleaning immediately, but the excellent front office is great & will do their best with openings that come up if you let them know what you need. I love being part of their family & highly recommend this office.

I can’t say enough good things about Bell Family Dentistry! Both dentists and their staff are very customer-service driven and make me feel so at home. Susan did an awesome job of cleaning my teeth. Based on her previous recommendations, I changed to a less abrasive toothpaste to protect my veneers. She pointed me to a study that identified many brands/types of toothpaste with their rating so I could determine which one would best suit my needs. It worked! The cleaning process was a breeze! Thanks, Susan!

Dr. Bell has been taking care of my teeth my entire life and there is nowhere else I’d rather go! Extremely professional and helpful staff who are always smiling. If you are looking for a dentist, look no further! You won’t regret it. 🙂

Alyssa A. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


We love going to Dr. Bell’s office!  We really appreciate the great service and will continue to return every 6 months for our preventive care!  We are impressed by the equipment they use and the electronic reminders that are used are great for keeping the appointment on the calendar.  Thank you Dr. Bell and the staff!

Our family travels 45 minutes to an hour to see this dentist office. The staff, hygienists, and doctors are beyond excellent! There is never a nervous moment no matter who’s chair you’re in. I have referred several friends to Dr. Bell and his team and they also love this office and Dr. Bell.

Lori B. from Bonsall, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Geoffrey Bell has been my dentist since I was 17 or 18 yrs old (30+ years ago) and I couldn’t be happier.I’ve lived in PA, TX, GA and dentists there have always commented on how amazing his work was/is. Dr. Bell is known by his colleagues as “a perfectionist” and they’re absolutely correct… he’s even more particular than his patients. There aren’t enough words to convey how thankful I was to be referred to him all those years ago. Now my husband & 2 “kids” (18 & 20) are Brandon’s (Dr. Bell’s son) patients and Brandon is a chip off the old block! Both great Dr.’s and people who still care about quality service. I wish there were more stars to give them than just 5.

We have been going to Dr. Bell Sr for over 35 nears and are so happy to continue the experience with his son! What a wonderful family and terrific dentists!!

Mary E. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t be more pleased in finding this family practice. I highly recommend both Dr. Bell’s for your dental needs. Love love the office decor, energy and dental care provided by the Dr’s and staff. Our family moved here 2 years ago, and I’m so grateful to have our new family dentist in our new hometown. My only regret is that I didn’t find this office sooner. Five star practice for sure!!

Bell family dentistry really makes it a pleasure to go to see the dentist! Both Geoff and Brandon are equally talented and get the work done. They run on time , so no long waiting..Everyone in the office are efficient and friendly. My favorite dentists I have ever had. You won’t be disappointed.

I have been Dr. Geoffrey Bell’s patient for close to 30 years. I initially started treating with Dr. Bell when I lived and worked in North County. I now live and work in San Diego, but don’t mind driving to Carlsbad to see Dr. Bell or his son Dr. Brandon Bell. Both are excellent dentists and provide superb service. The hygienists and staff are very caring, friendly, and helpful. I highly recommend Bell Family Dentistry.

From the moment I walk in, until the time I leave is a pleasant experience. I never thought I would say that about a dentist office, but it’s true. Debbie is a great an hygienist and Dr. Bell is professional with a good sense of humor. They are thorough and straight forward. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good dentist.

Tyler L. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an emergency (infection) come up on Friday July 3rd and of course my dentist office was closed. I called 8 different places and all were closed… Dr. Bell got me in immediately even though he didn’t accept my insurance and took great care of me. It’s difficult to find a dentist that you can trust and has his patients best interest at the forefront. I would recommend him to anyone, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable, they went above and beyond for me!

By far THE BEST Dentists I have ever seen!! Their entire staff works hard to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. Their office has the aura of walking into a home. I was deathly afraid of dental visits. This is no longer an issue for me. I have Dr. Brandon Bell as my dentist, but have been seen by both. Every time I’ve been seen they continue to check if your comfortable and explain the visit to you as they go. So thankful to my friend for recommending Bell Dentistry to me!

Jorge Espinoza (Source: Google)


AWESOME dentists!! They don’t try to sell you things that you don’t need. The hygienists are fantastic. They are constantly checking on your well being and find ways to ease you through any discomfort if any issues arise. I highly recommend them if you want a an honest, dedicated, and professional experience with your dentist. Go see the Bells.

This entire dental experience has been nothing short of excellent. The staff is caring and the level of of expertise from both Dr. Bells are true professionals combining an innate sense of calmness and tranquility that I have never experienced. This is a special unique place!

Lisa M. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient in this office for over 25 years and can’t imagine going elsewhere. Dr. Geoff has always been a pillar of the Carlsbad community, genuinely caring about the city and the townspeople within. As a dentist, he is always learning and researching the science and art of dentistry. I’m so happy that Dr Brandon has followed in his footsteps! They are both the kindest and gentlest of dentists, always making you feel safe and in the best of hands. Every hygienist, assistant and office staff member    follow their example with excellence and welcomeness. I’m lucky to be part of the family.. Thank you, a hundred times over!

Dr. Bell and staff are simply the BEST! My family and I recently moved to Nashville and I had dental work that needed to be completed. I made sure to make arrangements to fly back so Dr. Bell could finish the work for me. He even came in on his day off! His work is flawless. Also his sensitivity and sense of humor make the appointment time enjoyable. Loni, one of his assistants was also very knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend Bell family dentistry to anyone looking for a new dental home!

Took excellent care of me on a holiday when I had an emergency come up and my dentist office and most all other offices were closed even though they did not accept my insurance. Would reccomend this office to anyone!

Greg Z. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


Years ago, a friend of mine referred me to Dr. Bell, DDS. Everytime I go to them, it is more like visiting friends. They are not the typical Dentist office. I have been with them for more than 30 years now. It if comforting to have them at the ready when I need them as I did earlier in the year. I was seen right away and they got me fixed up immediately. If you are looking for a local dentist office, I can recommend them wholeheartedly.

Everytime I have been there it has been a good experience. The staff and Dr. G. Bell make you feel at ease and comfortable. I would and have recommended them to others.

Dr. Brandan Bell is very gentle and efficient, and kind. He did a great job saving a tooth that had a fine crack before it got to where I would need to have a root canal. Thank you Dr. Brandan! His assistant Lonnie was great too, the whole staff is!

Sindia Zamarripa (Source: Facebook)


BOTH DR. BELLS, are the best. They have helped me restore my teeth and they did not make me feel guilty about anything. I am part of this dental family now.

Jeannie R. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


Susan did a wonderful job of cleaning my teeth. She is skillful, professional and so knowledgeable. Results have paid off after following her recommendations on ways to continuously improve my oral hygiene. She’s the best! The friendly office atmosphere makes me feel so at home. I wouldn’t go anywhere else! I highly recommend this dental office.

John Reardon (Source: Google)


Fantastic experience – it started somewhat routine, but I ended up going to a Endodontist, then on to an Oral Surgeon and then back to Dr. Bell. Dr. Bell followed my progress and made sure that I was well taken care of by the specialists. Nice people – very professional.

Marilyn T. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


As much as I have loved Dr. Bell Sr., I LOVE Dr. Bell Jr.!! I needed the “dreaded” crown and scheduled with Dr. Bell as I moved to Mexico and my schedule in the states is limited…  I finally booked with Dr. Brandon Bell and he was absolutely amazing! He was brilliant and proffessionable with his assessment of the problem and personable and proffessionable in the execution in fixing the problem! I HIGHLY recommend Bell Family Dentistry…and don’t even worry about which Dr. Bell you get… 😉


I was born and raised in Carlsbad in the square mile between my childhood home, the Carlsbad school system, and our Carlsbad dental office. I am happy to have the opportunity to return to and practice in the community that I love. Some patients may even remember me as the platinum blond kid running around the dental office, or maybe held me to keep me from crying hysterically as I was known for being a sensitive baby. I understand it may be difficult seeing me in the dental office now a bit taller and wearing a white coat, but we all know that the “old” Dr. Bell will never retire, so patients now have the benefit of two Dr. Bells. Everyday, I am asked when I decided to “follow in my dad’s footsteps” and become a dentist. Perhaps it seemed inevitable to most people, but growing up I was unaware that dentistry would become my future. Nor did I have a single “ah ha” moment that dentistry would become my life’s passion. Rather, my decision to become a dentist and practice in Carlsbad came from an accumulation of life experiences and my desire to contribute and help people. Sure, I have been surrounded by dentistry my entire life. I have been my dad’s on call dental assistant since I was old enough to hold a suction, and have distinct memories of coming into the dental office on weekends to help patients in pain and even some of my friends that had broken their teeth. As a child growing up around our Carlsbad dental office, I did not have the fearful and sometimes painful introduction to dentistry that many people remember of their childhood. Rather, I saw my dad interacting with patients every day and having a good time doing it. Laughter was a more common noise than the drill, and it felt good to be a part of such a positive experience for patients. In addition to being surrounded by dentistry in Carlsbad, our family vacations often involved distributing hundreds of toothbrushes and providing oral hygiene instruction to children at local schools in under served regions in Costa Rica, a tradition we continue today. Dr. Brandon Bell's WeddingAfter graduating from Carlsbad High school in 2002, I attended UCSB for 5 years, graduated with high honors with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Honors Society. More importantly, I met my beautiful next door neighbor and love of my life, Kristina, and we have been inseparable since. While I thoroughly enjoyed my time at UCSB and would have stayed as long as I could, they told me I had to graduate because I had too many units. I struggled with the decision to enter medicine or dentistry, but after spending a lot of time in hospitals with a friend that was battling cancer, I knew that I was not emotionally cut out to deal with life and death decisions on a daily basis. What I did know through my experiences growing up was that I could have a positive impact on people through dentistry, so I decided to apply to dental school. Our Dog Charger I attended UCLA School of Dentistry for the past four years, the same dental school my father graduated from, and recently graduated in June 2012. My goal at UCLA was to work as hard as I possibly could to be the best dentist that I could be. I was selected by the Chair of the Division of Restorative Dentistry to participate in an accelerated program aimed at developing general dentists, and received the Academy of Operative Dentistry Award, UCLA School of Dentistry Award for Excellence in Restorative Dentistry, and UCLA School of Dentistry Award for Excellence in the Section of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. In addition, I was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) National Honor Society, which is awarded to the top 10% of graduating students. The recognition was nice, but my motivation was always simply to work hard to be the best dentist that I could be so that I could provide patients with the best care possible. When I’m not in the dental office you can find me surfing, playing tennis, snowboarding in Mammoth, or walking around Carlsbad with my wife and our dog, Charger, who we have to make sure is always living the dream. I look forward to meeting you in the future.
