For the last 3 years, I was looking for a dental office to do my Implants. One of my friend referred me to Dr. Hariri at Carlsbad Shore Family Dentistry.  I was very impressed at my initial interview and decided to go for it. As of this writing, I have three initial screws implanted in my jaw. Hearing so many scary stories from people with implants, I  can not believe, how smoothly my procedure went. I did not experienced any pain and discomfort at all. Considering how professional and caring Dr. Hariri is and how his beautiful office and kind staff is, I could visit the Carlsbad Shores Family Dentistry every week. Torill Lystad

Thank you !!! Can’t thank you enough to entire team at Carlsbad Shores Dentistry and special thanks for Dr. Hariri. Was in town from Chicago visiting family when of course the worst thing that could happen happened. My tooth had a crack in the two front veneers that needed immediate attention. Not only did Dr.Hariri coke some to the rescue, but the level of professionalism and attention to detail. They were able to match the exact same shading and exact sizing correct. Would HIGHLY recommend !!

Look no further! This is the best Dental Clinic in SD. From the moment I walked in I was impressed – the staff are very professional and friendly. Dr Hariri is fantastic! I needed two fillings, and was in and out within an hour. Did not feel the gum injections! Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a modern, upmarket dental clinic

Nicole P. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is AMAZING. My whole life I’ve struggle with having a dentist and staff that just don’t care. My first time here, and these people literally made me feel like family, and that they cared. PLUS the office is top notch with the best equipment.

Dr. Hariri and staff were completely and utterly amazingly accommodating. Being pregnant and in excruciating pain, he comforted me and eased my pain immediately as a walk in. Gave me his # and I text and he responded immediately on his day off. No long waits in office, pain relief was a top priority. Text reminders a +. Clean office, wonderful staff, nothing but great reviews!

Bilal P. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I had great service at this dental office. Finding a convenient appointment time was easy and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The office is new and state-of-the-art and I was able to watch TV during my time in the dental chair

Cornelia K. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was the first time at the office of Dr. Hariri and his team and made an excellent experience. Everything was great. Dr. Hariri himself explained everything to me very good and how he is working with his team seams to me exemplary for a wonderful working relationship. The staff was very friendly and quite accommodating. The office is very comfortable and well designed, the latest technic is used. Finally, I highly recommend this place to everyone

I don’t know of anyone who really enjoys going to the Dentist, mainly when you need to get 2 implants while visiting friends. After some research I came across Carlsbad Shores Family Dentistry that had great reviews. I made an appointment with Dr. Sean who was very thorough and explained every step of the surgery along the way.  So impressed by his knowledge, their technology, professionalism and ability to put me at ease. And for a perfectionist, he works pretty fast! So 2 implants later, no pain during or after surgery and an excellent recovery I highly recommend Dr. Sean/Carlsbad Shores Family Dentistry and his Team! 5 stars!

As a military member I was looking for a dentist for my kids that accepted the met life military dental insurance. The facilities are phenomenal and the staff was fantastic. They catered to my girls and made everything for them a fun and comfortable experience. Would recommend to anyone looking in the north county area!

Daniel T. from Louisville, KY (Source: Yelp)


I thought this office was exceptionally professional and courteous.  The office was new and very clean.  The staff was very friendly and caring.  The doctor was very thorough and did a great job explaining my dental needs. I will definitely come back for my follow up!

Debra T. from La Jolla, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely gorgeous, modern and very clean office. Very friendly and professional staff. State of the art equipment. The best cleaning I have ever had in my life. I feel like I can smile again ! I would definitely would return. For anyone looking for a new Dental home, I highly recommend Dr. Hariri’s Office!!

I had such a great first experience at Carlsbad Shores Family Dentistry. For my first exam, they were forgiving of me being late, still went through a very detailed exam with explanation, answered all my questions, and took time to make me feel welcome and at ease with everything they were doing. I believe they truly do care for the patient and want the patient to walk out being happy to shine there smile! Will definitely recommend. =)

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


Dr. Hariri and his team are exceptional! They would treat you like family right the moment you walk into the office. Dr. Hariri is very caring, compassionate and perfectionist. He works with Top of the line Hi Tech equipment and with any procedure you take on, his goal is to make it as comfortable and painless as possible. He takes pride in what he does. I got two crowns done yesterday which I watched get made in front of me and it was such a cool experience. Thank you so much Dr. Sean for fixing my crowns and being patient with me yesterday!

Lasha C. from Fontana, CA (Source: Yelp)


If I could give 10 stars I would! Dr. Hariri is the best dentist I have ever been to. I love the staff; they are very nice and answered all of my questions. I’ve always been afraid of going to the dentist but my feelings changed after coming to this office. Everyone made me feel very comfortable, and the whole ambiance was just awesome. I got the teeth whitening package and am very satisfied with my results. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who’s looking for amazing customer service and a friendly staff. Overall great experience and I will definitely be going back for my other dental needs!

Nicole H. from Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came here to get my teeth whitened before my wedding in October and I really loved this place! The ladies I spoke to were very nice and easy to talk to and the results from my teeth whitening were exactly what I was looking for :-)Also, a super cool addition to the experience here is that you get to watch Netflix while you’re in the chair! It was awesome to get to pick something to watch, which I can see as really relaxing for those who may be nervous about dentist visits. One note, though! Don’t pick a show too funny or you’ll be awkwardly laughing with all this dental material in your mouth! 🙂

Nicole B. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had not been to the dentist for 4 years and had some major concerns with some of my teeth. After calling to make an appointment I was contacted that same day by Dr. Hariri himself.  I was able to get in that Saturday as I had requested. Upon entering the office I immediately felt at ease.I was told my insurance details and steps to help me ensure I was clear on my payment portion and what was covered by my policy. Overall I had a great experience and got many problems fixed that very day. I have 3 follow up appointments already in the books to conclude my current dental work. I was also told I could bring my 3 year old son in for my cleaning and he can stay in the reception area with the wonderful staff to look after him for an hour. Being a stay at home mom this made me feel less stressed having to consider child care for that day. I would suggest Carlsbad Shores Dentistry to anyone in the north county area for professional and friendly service. The staff is great and the work speaks for itself!

David H. from Fallbrook, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had an EXCELLENT experience here. From friendly staff, To the office vibe chill. Coming from three dentist’s,  that hurt me every time they did work. I didn’t feel any pain at all, the staff was very friendly and I would recommended the Staff and Doctor to anybody. This Doctor is the man

I went to get teeth whitening and their service was great, staff were super kind and made you feel comfortable, and it had a very good waiting area with refreshments. I would definetly recommend this place and I will be coming back

My family has been coming here for several years now. I love how they work with me to get all of us in on the same day. Dr. Hariri is great with my kids and the hygienists are so patient. It’s nice to find a dentist for the whole family!

Andrea M. from Murray Hill, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


The best dental experience I have ever had.!!! Everyone in the office was super professional and attentive.  The office is clean and state of the art.  Paris gave me the best cleaning!! Dr.  Hariri was very gentle and attentive.  What a wonderful team. !!! If you are looking for a new dentist.  Go to Carlsbad shores family dentistry!!

Kate E. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I truly cannot say enough good things about Dr. Hariri and his ENTIRE team! This will be long… but totally worth a read, I promise! As a kid I had a horrible dentist and it scarred me for YEARS! Because of that experience I literally didn’t go to the dentist as an adult for many years. I finally decided enough was enough, found Carlsbad Shores Family Dentistry and within a 3 month time period- all work has been done painlessly and with such confidence… I cannot tell you how much this means to me! The team is beyond sweet, clearly caring about each individual patient, and knows what they’re doing. I knew what was going on each step of the way, including how my insurance would work (which is huge when you’re talking about 10 years worth of dentistry needing to be done!), and they even planned out priorities for me so I could manage the most critical procedures first. I’m now done with everything I needed and even have my next cleaning on the books 🙂 Finally, it’s worth mentioning that about 2 years ago I visited a different dentist in San Marcos, and the analysis of what she indicated I would need was literally more than DOUBLE what Dr. Hariri indicated I needed to have completed. She indicated at least 3 Root Canals… Dr. Hariri didn’t feel that necessary at all and completed crowns on those teeth instead. I KNOW they are not taking advantage of their patients because they easily could have told me I needed more work than necessary and I wouldn’t have batted an eye! They are WONDERFUL. I’m telling everyone I can about Dr. Hariri and his team… they have exceeded my crazy expectations and I’m so lucky to have found them! 🙂

Making an appointment was easy and was scheduled quickly. Sean Hariri is a great dentist. I was treated with kindness and respect from the get go. I was impressed by the current technology in use, the cleanliness and the general feeling of being treated like a king.  I plan on using this dentistry for my entire family. This is by far the best dentist practice that I have ever be to. This dentist will leave you smiling.

Dr. Hariri and his staff are the absolute best! I have been coming to Carlsbad Shores Dentistry for a while now and have received a variety of treatments here. From cleanings to fillings, Dr. Hariri always makes sure that I am comfortable throughout my visit and happy with my results. I highly recommend coming here.

I have intense anxiety with dentists after a few bad experiences when I was younger. In the nearly twenty years since, this is the first dentist who’s had me completely at ease. Dr. Hariri and ALL his wonderful staff are incredible, and the office itself really puts me at ease. The front lobby looks like a comfortable living room instead of a sterile waiting room, and they have Netflix on TVs to watch while they’re working on you! Great way to distract my anxious thoughts. They are extremely accommodating, and Dr. Hariri constantly checks in during a procedure to make sure I’m doing okay. The rest of his staff makes me feel comfortable and welcome, they’re always so upbeat! I don’t get the impression they’re “just doing a job”. My only regret is not finding them sooner!

L N. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


I had a dental emergency while at LEGOLAND with my family. One of my veneers on my front tooth came off and it looked terrible! My husband, a dentist, said it could be re-cemented and he looked on Yelp to find a reputable dentist.  Since he’s a big believer in Yelp, he found Carlsbad Shores Family Dentistry. He was impressed with all the positive reviews and the state of the art practice. They were able to squeeze us in that same afternoon.  The receptionist was very friendly and Dr. Hariri even came out to introduce himself.  Since I had my children with me they were so accommodating by turning on Netflix so they could watch a movie while they wait. Dr. Hariri did a great job re-cementing my veneer and saved the rest of my vacation. I even received a thank you card to my home address. Thank you so much Carlsbad Shores Family Dentistry!

Ramin P. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


This doctor is amazing. I broke a tooth and had to get a crown. I hate going to dentist as I a really gag sensitive. Dr. Sean Hariri was so gentle and detail oriented that I never gaged once. He has the magic touch. Take excellent care with his new office with the most advanced technology that I had not seen at other dentists before. I highly recommend him. There are many dentist that are good but he is excellent and takes care with true care as he loves what he does

My sister had a dental appointment so I went with her. When we arrived we were greeted with the warmest hello from the front desk worker. We got a tour of the office. It is a new office and some things are still in the works, but the stuff that was done so far was amazing. Even though I wasn’t the patient, I was still treated with respect. I met the entire staff and they gave off a good vibe. When I need to go to a dentist, I know who to go to. Oh, and the office has nitrous in case anyone needs it and they also have a Pediatric dentist. The children’s wait area is in the works but the dentist said it would be a kid’s paradise.

Derrick S. from San Marcos, CA (Source: Yelp)


Recently moved to the area. I went in to get a cleaning and found that I needed a few fillings. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I was able to get the fillings competed in no time. The dentist Sean Hariri did excellent work. I would recommend their services

Kandi Kesler (Source: Google)


Dr. Sean was amazing. I was on vacation and had a filling start to cause me problems with lots of pain. His office manager got me right in on a Saturday. He talked me through a couple of options and helped me chose which I thought would be best. I made the wrong choice of what to do and ended up having a ton of pain the next day. I called him, and he was more than willing to take my call on a Sunday and helped me get the relief I needed. Then he text me and followed up multiple times to make sure I was feeling better. I was super happy with my visit. He was great

I was on vacation visiting family I had a dental issue while I was there and my family recommended Dr. Sean. I called and they got me in right away. What a wonderful person and great staff. His office is equipped with the latest equipment and technology, I got the work done quickly. I would highly recommend Dr. Sean and his staff. I was able to enjoy the rest of my vacation

Tracie M. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an emergency. Lost a crown and got the first appointment available. Everyone was professional and so very nice. If you have any anxiety about going to the dentist this team will change your perspective and you will be positive about going to the dentist.

Crystal B. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience at this facility was very pleasant. All of the staff were extremely polite. Jasmine and Ana had a great bed side manner and gently cleaned my teeth. Dr. Hariri was very knowledgeable and was straight forward. My previous dental office would always over sell different treatment options. I didn’t get that impression here. I felt that I got a great deal for the price! I plan on returning!!

Arash Keissami (Source: Facebook)


Great dentist with a very friendly staff. The moment you walk in, you will get a team that not only cares about your teeth about how you personally

Dusty Mersy (Source: Google)


Sean and his staff, Paris and Val, have been great in getting my dental health back in order. A few months ago, I needed an emergency root canal on a Saturday morning and they were able to get me in and fixed up by noon, no questions asked. Since then, I’ve been back a few times – Val has been able to set up a treatment plan that provides the best bang for my buck and Paris and Sean have been taking great care of my teeth. I look forward to my future appointments knowing I am under their care.
