Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

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


Dr. Chan has been our family dentist for a year now. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is fast & efficient and conservative when it comes to treatment recommendations. He doesn’t recommend more treatment than is absolutely necessary. I completely trust him. In addition, I have some health issues that make getting dental work done extremely hard for me. When I first started going to him I explained my issues. He asked what he could do to make my experience as comfortable as possible and he has been incredibly patient and worked with me on my specific issues each time I have come in. I’m so grateful to him & his staff. I was dreading getting the work done that I needed, but Dr. Chan and his staff made it possible for me and created an environment of comfort & understanding

I LOVE Dr. Jack Chan! He is very professional as well as funny and honest. It seems like he really sympathizes and understands the patient. I usually hate going to the dentist, but he has changed that for me. I tolerate it now lol. It rocks how thorough he is. As a patient, you’re more than just a number here. They make sure to take enough time to thoroughly get the job done so you don’t have to revisit your issue later. The staff is very personable and competent in what they do, and they seem to work harmoniously with Dr. Chan. My last appointment was seriously filled with a lot of laughs and serious questions. The prices are good and fair, and he refers out (when necessary) to some great specialists. I’m not being paid to say this… They really are that great

We have been going here for years! Dr.Chan and his staff are amazing! Friendly, honest, professional, caring and fun! Thanks to you all! My kids always look forward to their visits!

Dr Chan is awesome, by far the best dental experience I’ve ever had! The office staff is super friendly and all of the dental assistants I have had are great. I highly recommend California Coast Dental

Ginger G. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love Love Love this office!  Only positive things to say.  Hated to leave, buy moved and needed to find a new dentist, although if I didn’t find a new one I liked close to home, I was willing to take a 1/2 day off of work and drive 45+ mins to go back.  Highly recommend Dr. Chan and his staff!

Danielle A. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a dental emergency a couple weeks ago and went in to see Dr. Chan. I thought that my tooth was going to have to be pulled. I was ecstatic when Dr. Chan told me he could save my tooth. He’s a great guy who is really good at putting the patient at ease. Great chair side manner with a very friendly staff. Thank you Dr. Chan 🙂

Joan Y. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Made an appt with Dr. Chan after not seeing a dentist for 15 years! This was the most pleasant experience I’ve ever had since having orthodontics and major oral surgery. I knew I was in great hands when I noticed how kind and respectful he was with his staff. As far as I can tell from my experience, he treats patients like people, not like another insurance claim. It was this visit that has motivated me to adopt better oral hygiene and make regular visits to the dentist. I intend to make Dr. Chan’s dental practice a long term provider for me and my family

Lisa G. from Rancho Mirage, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband had a dental emergency in July where one of his filings broke on a Thursday night.  Although we have a dentist in the desert we did not have one in Oceanside.  We called Dr. Chan’s office the next morning and even though we had never been to this office before, they were kind enough to squeeze my husband into their schedule that same day.  Dr. Chan did an outstanding job of fixing the filing and my husband was therefore able to enjoy the weekend!  Thank you Dr. Chan and staff for prompt, professional, excellent service

Lori R. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


How adorable is this place?! This is built into a house right next to City Hall in downtown Oceanside. I had no idea it was even back here. I easily got a Friday appointment and the staff was friendly and attentive. Dr. Chan was thorough and didn’t recommend a bunch of procedures I didn’t need. He even gave me a small toy and said it was the “cleanest teeth of 2016 award” which was pretty funny. I always get wary of practices that have “dark spots to watch” or offer to drill into your head when it’s not needed. I didn’t feel like he was a salesmen at all. I have a really sensitive spot in my mouth and they were gentle with me when they saw I was getting uncomfortable.I was very satisfied with the appointment time, the staff and the professionalism. The office is also cozy and very nicely decorated. The waiting room, paintings, everything was very well thought. Definitely check this out if you’re looking for a new dentist!

Christina P. from Lakeland, FL (Source: Yelp)


I was very cautious about selecting a new dentist as I have had a bad experience with a prior dental office which created a trust issue. So glad I found Dr Chan!  His concern is the health of your teeth and not performing unnecessary work.  His staff is friendly, the office vibe is warm and an overall nice atmosphere – no pressure which is very refreshing. I was told by my previous dentist I needed 2 crowns and Dr Chan said all I needed was a small filling.  He has restored my faith in the dental profession!  Thank you to Dr Chan and your terrific staff!

Dr. Chan is the man! I had my wisdom teeth extracted as well as a little piece of a tooth’s root, that was left over from another Dentists botched job. Dr. Chan made sure that I was in no pain and comfortable at all times. He’s so gentle, caring, and treats you like a friend…. Always humorous and honest. He truly cares about his patients and it shows! His staff is also just as awesome! I’m so grateful to have found California Coast Dental… My husband and will go no where else. You just can’t top Dr. Chan and his team

Rachel R. from Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist ever! I used to live walking distance. Even after moving, I continue to see Dr. Chan. He is kind, funny, and extremely honest. I’ve had times when I went in thinking I needed much more work done, and he has always suggested less intense treatment plans that still get the best results. Going to see Dr. Chan and the rest of his staff is a pleasure, not something that many people can say about going to the dentist.

I chose Dr. Chan for 3 reasons: 1) My son & daughter-in-law had been using him for years 2) he was close to my house & work 3) he is on my approved PPO dentists list. I have been very very happy with him & his whole staff. I have been his patient for 7 years and have recommended co-workers to him. I go every 6 months without fail. Did I mention that I get the finest birthday and Xmas cards from his office!

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


Great experience with Dr Chan and his staff. Honest, fair and overall great people is one of many things I like about this practice. My teeth have never been more healthy and nice~ thank you

Lina Martinez (Source: Google)


Dr. Chan and his staff are the absolute best!!! He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and he can perform most procedures right there in his office without sending you to a specialist. Access to available appointments is easy, and with them billing both of my insurances I never had one single issue. Not to mention Dr. Chan literally saved me thousands of dollars by being honest about the treatment I needed compared to what a previous dentist had told me. There are TVs on the ceiling with a wide variety of movies you can select in case you have to be in the chair for a while. I mean, I just cannot say enough wonderful things about this dentist! I had to move out of state and have never since been able to find a dental office that come close to this one. The open and happy environment where it’s obvious everyone genuinely gets along and appreciated patients is bare none. If you need a thorough and gentle dentist, then this place is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Maria H. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I saw Dr. Jack W. Chan at the office in La Jolla.  He is a role model of a dentist.  He does excellent work, he has a conservative approach in the patient’s best interest (not looking to make a quota) of what work needs to be done.  He gives choices with pros and cons, shows the pictures before and after with the results.   His assistant Chelsea does excellent work too, and is a pleasure to work with both of them.  Dr. Chan is satisfied only with perfection.  For example, my crown ordered was sent back because was a little too short in one corner (where the nearby crown from a different dentist, was short all around).  He keeps informed with the latest in the profession.  If you are curious and ask questions, you find a lot of information.    I selected him as a second opinion, not telling him regarding what.   I am glad I did, because I saved four teeth being unnecessarily crowned.   I highly recommend him.

I recently returned to the San Diego area, and had an issue I needed addressed with a dentist immediately. I didn’t have a dentist in the area yet, so I called Dr Chan and he was fully booked today.  However, he was kind enough to squeeze me into his schedule due to my concerns with my teeth. He was great! I am happy to have found a dentist that I can rely on that is close to my new home! Thank you Dr Chan!

I have been going to Dr. Chan and his staff for the last 6 years. He is great. Sadly today was my last appointment with him, for at least a year. I have a new insurance plan next year and have to change dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Chan and his staff. Plus what other dentist offers you Andies mints. LOL!!

Cary B. from Glendora, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Chan is so amazing. You can really tell that he cares about the well being of his patients mouths. He kept me in the loop while he was doing my fillings. He saved a tooth that I was told a year ago needed a whole root canal procedure, with just a filling. I even watched a movie on the ceiling flat screen while he was working on me. He’s quelled my fear of dental work. He is the magic man of teeth. Furthermore, his office is clean and beautiful

Brad V. from Calgary, Canada (Source: Yelp)


I had not been to the dentist in about 15 years and decided I should finally go.  Dr. Chan’s office was a great experience.  They did a thorough exam and determined that they could get my teeth clean without the painful and intensive “deep cleaning”.  It took awhile, but the hygienist (I’m sorry I do not remember her name) did a fantastic job. I did not hesitate to go back a few months later when I was scheduled to return.  It was great to find a dentist’s office that looked for ways to not sell you additional procedures and make the visit a pleasant one.  Sadly I moved out of the area and now have to start from scratch…or fly back to San Diego to get my teeth cleaned (believe me, I’ve considered it)

David S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dentist I have been to hands down. Unlike most dentists these days, Dr. Chan actually gives you an honest opinion of what work you should and need to get done. Most dentists just give you a long list of what work needs to be done so they get more business, Dr. Chan tells you what is actually best for you. If you don’t need something fixed he will give you a conservative honest answer of what your best options are. The office staff is super friendly and they go out of their way to ensure your time at the dentist is enjoyable. I brought my night guard and retainer and without me even asking they cleaned both of them and had them ready for me to take when my appointment was over. Dr. Chan is also really friendly which is the reason the staff is so friendly. For cost, they tell you how much you owe for your appointment before you go in and I have always paid this much after my appointment. So many times in my life I have had dentists tell me that the appointment will cost x amount of dollars and then after they do the work they just arbitrarily charge more and there is no way to fight it because the work is already done. Dr. Chan is so good that even after I moved from San Diego to LA, I still drive down to go to his office. A couple additional minor items are that they never make you wait and are super organized and don’t over book. This seems like an expected thing but so many times I have waited for hours in other dentists offices. Also parking is available right in front of the office. In summary, Dr. Chan is the best dentist I have ever been to. He is honest, good at his craft, has a good staff, fairly priced, has a great location, and in all my appointments I still do not have one bad thing to say. I strongly recommend anyone who lives in San Diego or even South Orange County go to Dr. Chan.

JEN, Dr. Chan, and all staff: I received my work note and I forwarded it to my employer. I sure appreciate you doing that as I’m recovering and need the narcotic pain meds to aid in my recovery. I’m also taking the Motrin and amoxicillin as rx’d. I gotta tell you for my visit to your office, I really felt like I was family and like a patient who had been going there for years. My family have had many awful experiences with previous dental offices treating us horribly and also going out of business all of sudden. So being treated so quickly and so gently, was such a blessing . So in short, your whole office really made a real painful day really awesome!!! Dr. Chan you won’t believe how surprised I was when I heard your voicemail when you checked on me and gave me your information so I could call you back if need be. You made my day when you answered my call and helped me!! Your office holds a SPECIAL place in my heart and I will definitely send others your way!! Sincerely, JM

Painless and honest! Dr.Chan has been there since I was a kid he’s amazing takes alot of pride in his work and makes you feel good walking out

Elizabeth S. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jack Chan is a fabulous dentist and very likely, a wonderful human being. My daughter knocked her tooth out and the whole ordeal was very traumatic – ER, etc. We found Dr. Chan on Yelp and he was able to see us first thing the next morning. He did a delicate exam for such a young patient, gave us his opinion, and a $25 bill for first-time patient. We were vulnerable and would’ve paid any amount to make sure our daughter was okay – he could’ve taken us for a financial ride, but didn’t because that would not be the right thing/ethical thing to do. Our entire family now goes to Dr. Chan. When I had a cracked filling, he got in there, and took me step-by-step through the process and why *I was fortunate* I didn’t need a root canal – complete transparency. I cannot say enough about Dr. Chan and his dentistry – he’s a class act. Thank you, Dr. Chan!

Best and most comfortable Dental office I’ve ever been to. Jack is awesome, really knows his stuff and his staff are so nice. I also get to choose what movie I get to watch while getting work done and they even sent me a nice bday card on my bday


Taking care of your oral health is our priority. Dr. Chan and the rest of our professional staff look forward in meeting your entire family. From routine dental cleanings to full mouth reconstructions, we can help and guide you to obtain the smile of your dreams. Dr. Chan opened California Coast Dental Arts in March 2005 and has since provided exceptional dental care to Oceanside and surrounding communities' residents. He has been voted as a San Diego Magazine Top Dentist numerous times since 2006 by his peers and patients. Dr. Chan has provided the Oceanside Unified School District with over 1,000 free student screenings. Dr. Chan and his staff are committed to staying on the forefront of dental technology while providing the needed care and compassion that we all appreciate. Raised on the island of Guam since the age of three, I enjoyed island living until moving to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California. I graduated in three and a half years with a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Sciences in 1996 and a Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 2001. I established my own practice in Oceanside, California building it almost literally from the ground up in 2005. While building California Coast Dental Arts, I became a part-time faculty member at USC Dental School teaching restorative techniques to prepare the dental students to work in a clinical environment. Although I enjoyed teaching and explaining the logic behind techniques and procedures to dental students; our triplets, a growing practice and the commute prevented me from continuing. My philosophy in life is simple: Leave the world a better place than you found my case, one smiling person at a time.
