M. T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s always a pleasure visiting Dr. Thompson’s dental office! Dr. Thompson and her staff are highly knowledgeable, caring, cheerful and efficient. I’m always in and out of the office on time, and with extra time taken to clearly explain problems and solutions. In my initial visit I saw high resolution digital pictures of my teeth for the first time which was amazing. The office has a relaxing beach atmosphere which feels “fresh”, notably with new floors, furniture, computers. Additionally, Dr. Thompson is eco-conscious, which is important to me! We had a great conversation today about how she is continually reviewing materials and processes for a better work and world environment. Over all, my teeth feel GREAT, thank you Dr. Thompson!

Dr. Thompson is very professional, and has great technical skills. I didn’t feel a thing when having a cavity filled. Her dental hygienist Holly was very thorough and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this office for dental work.

At 63 years old and having lived all over the country, I have been to a lot of dentist. Christina Thompson and her staff are one of the best offices I have ever been to. The staff is very friendly and courteous and Dr. Thompson is extremely knowledgeable. They are not pushy and she does not do work that is not needed. I highly recommend that if you are looking for a dentist you visit Christina Thompson, DMD.

Dr. Thompson and her entire team offer the best service and care I’ve experienced in a dentistry. Period.   In terms of care, her team is incredibly thorough and they offer useful suggestions for me at home. They also embrace the latest in dentistry technology, so I always feel like they are on the cutting edge of taking care of teeth. But most important for me, the customer service is second to none. Always trying to make me feel more comfortable, and they listen well to my needs. If there was an option above 5-stars, I’d select that.

Christina is the best dentist I have every used. She takes her time to do a thorough examination, has the latest equipment and is very knowledgeable on all the newest and best techniques. She also has a calming demeanor with which helped put my daughter at ease. I highly recommend her.

Yesterday was my first visit to Dr. Thompson. Let preface this review with how much I hate going to the dentist! Haha The office is very nice and modern which is a must for me. Dr. Thompson and her staff  are truly amazing. Extremely warm and welcoming from the second I walked in. I have a lot of work to be done due to my 6 yr absence from the dentist and extremely sensitive teeth. My last dentist was very pushy and salesman-ish which I dislike so much. I didn’t get that vibe at all and she even created a plan that will work perfectly with my insurance and minimal money out of my pocket. After my initial review (which was very thorough) by Dr. Thompson, I got a teeth cleaning from Holly who was very nice and understanding of my horrible gag reflex (think you get the pic of why I hated the dentist) haha my teeth feel so clean and can’t wait to continue my relationship with this practice! 100% recommend!

ME. C. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Thompson’s for several years, usually just having teeth cleaned twice a year and X-ray’d and checked once a year.  The dental hygienists in Dr. Thompson’s office are excellent and take the time to do a thorough job of teeth cleaning.  The staff is always pleasant and helpful and technically competent. I’ve been waiting several years to have the crowns on my two front teeth replaced and finally decided to take the plunge.  I was worried that the work wouldn’t turn out well, and I would have paid a considerable amount of money for no improvement.  Dr. Thompson was patient with all my concerns and took them into consideration.  After the temporaries were put in place, she asked me to take a couple of days to look them over and give her feedback on their appearance before she ordered the permanent crowns.  I did that and met with her again, giving her my feedback. The outcome was perfect!  I’m so pleased with my new front teeth.  What an improvement over the old ones.  Dr. Thompson really knows what she’s doing, and I’d recommend her to anyone wanting to improve the appearance of their teeth.

Best dentist I’ve ever been had the pleasure of seeing. She’s very attentive to the patient and is highly skilled. She does beautiful work. I’ve had everything from cleanings to crowns to fillings and some cosmetic work. Her staff is just as good and should be commended for their professionalism. I highly recommend this dental office for any age.

Dr. Christina Thompson and the entire staff were very accommodating, friendly, honest and thorough. I left with all of my questions answered and was very satisfied overall. I would recommend this dentistry to family, friends and co-workers!

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


Dr. Thompson and staff are highly skilled professionals, and the office is extremely clean, modern and welcoming. My husband and young adult kids are patients as well. The office is well run and appointments are on time. Great atmosphere, music, magazines, tea, though I’m usually taken right away. I’ve had fillings, crowns and of course twice yearly cleanings. All work has been comfortable, pain free and stress free. Highly recommended!

Athena H. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I switched over about a year a half. I was referred by a co-worker. It must have been great for him because he drives from the OC.  My experience has always been more than a pleasure.  I have referred a friend as well and she was pleased. The staff is very professional and I  felt welcomed immediately.  I would highly recommend this dental office. Dr. Christine has a kind and pleasant dispositon. My choice for life.

I have had a good fortune of having Dr. Thompson as my dentist for a long time. She has taken care of my entire family. We trust her work and her advice completely, and all of her work has been outstanding. We highly recommend it!

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


My husband and I were referred to Dr. Christina Thompson by clients of ours. They offered a first time client cleaning + X-rays price so we gave her team a try. It was the absolute best cleaning I’ve ever had. Her hygienist was so thorough, I mean its never fun having work done on your teeth but she did an amazing job. I came back for fillings which was also the best experience I got head phones, a blanket, movie and sun glasses for the light. It was as comfortable and enjoyable as you could be having fillings done. I highly recommend Christina and her team. From the minute you walk in everyone is so nice the location and environment is clean and calming. We don’t have insurance but we felt her cash prices were really fair.

DJ. D. from National City, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist in town, as far as we are concerned.  Everyone in the office is highly trained, patient, friendly, kind, and concerned.  My wife and I both think that Dr. Thompson is wonderful, and her staff is, too.

Christina Thompson Dmd is excellent at what she does. She’s friendly and down to earth while maintaining a professional demeanor. All of her staff share these traits and I look forward to my visits because I know that I will be getting the best care possible.

Dr Thompson is very professional. She and her staff are welcoming and provide excellent dental care without pushing needless treatments. Both my husband and I are pleased with this practice and highly recommend Dr. Thompson.

Dr. Thompson accepted me for a last-minute appointment to fix a chipped tooth. She was extremely patient, professional and the final result was amazing. This was the best chip fix I have ever had and plan on becoming a regular patient of hers. I highly recommend Dr. Christina Thompson!

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


Christina Thompson is quite simply the best dentist ever. She and her team are extremely professional and having been her patient now for several years, I can personally attest to her incredibly warm and personal bedside manner and her amazing attention to detail. She’s also great with kids and we’re so very fortunate to have Dr. Thompson and her team in our corner!

Mark O. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thompson and her team are AMAZING! From the front desk to the dentist chair, this place really made me feel like family. They are very professional and knowledgeable. I even got to watch “Family Guy” while getting my teeth cleaned. If you’re looking for a friendly and experienced Dentist, I strongly recommend Dr Thompson and her team!

My family and I have been with Christina for a while now, there is nothing she can’t do from gum reduction to Invisaline to treatments and the great looks of our teeth, We have had other dentist in the past and could not be-leave the difference between not only her knowledge but how much she cares!!!!

Dr Christina is the BEST!!!! She’s incredibly capable, extremely nice, accommodating, very responsive and a delight to be around! Her staff is magnificent too! I actually LOVE going to to the dentist!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr Christina and her dental office!!

Robert P. from Camarillo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Upon my visit the receptionist was very polite and pleasant to talk too made me feel very comfortable. The office area also was a comfortable and relaxing environment which was nice after my 3 hr. drive. My dental hygienist was Summer Waldo she was very professional and thorough in her examination and cleaning. I asked her a lot of questions pertaining too her equipment and tools her answers were very clear and concise, she told me that I had a small chip on the outer portion of my crown and that it was ok for now but maybe later it might need to be worked on. It was a great visit I will be down again and recommend office highly to others : ) Thank you again, ROBERT.

Kori C. from Encinitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


I switched to Dr. Thompson solely because she took my insurance and was close to where I live.  Little did I know how wonderful my new dentist would be!  First of all, the entire staff is very warm and friendly.  I feel like walking into “Cheers” when I go because not only does everyone know my name, they remember all kinds of things about me!  I can’t remember what I had for breakfast and these people remember minute details I told them last time I was in!  Summer is a gentle, thorough and talented hygienist and Dr. Thompson does a great over all job.  I even like the music they play while I’m getting my teeth worked on.  I would recommend Dr. Thompson to everyone

Jenn B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thompson has been me and my husband’s dentist for years. She is professional, friendly and reliable. We trust her skills and knowledge so much that we followed her to her office in San Diego County, even though we live in Orange County. In the past our kids went to a children’s dentist near us. Recently our 7 year old son had a cavity and we decided take him to her.  She and her staff were so kind to him and even though he was scared before he went, he said he barely noticed anything while she was working on him.
Anyway, we have always had a great experience with Dr. Thompson and we recommend her highly.

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


My husband and I were recommended to Christina Thompson a few years ago by a client of ours. Christina is such a kind person her calm demeanor and team put you right at ease from the minute you walk in. We’ve had cleanings with Summer who is the most thorough hygienist I’ve experienced. Invisalign, filings and most recently a dental emergency with Christina. My husband broke off a older corner composite of his front tooth, in a panic we called in to see if she could squeeze him in to fix asap. (He looked like Jim Carey from dumb and dumber) Although I’m sure it’s not always so easy for a dental emergency to squeeze in but we are so so grateful. His tooth actually looks so much better than the previous composite. I really highly recommend Christina Thompson and her team!

I visited Dr Thompson’s office for an initial evaluation and cleaning. The office and staff are very inviting and professional. Dr Thompson spent some time with me getting to know me and my health in general, which was very nice. She palpated my neck which no other dentist has done, but it makes a lot of sense to do so. Altogether it was a great experience. With her knowledge, equipment and team, I think she’ll be a great addition to my health team.

Robin R. from Encinitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to this practice for 20 years, way before Dr. Thompson arrived, and though I have always liked the dentists and hygienists there, I really think this is the best it’s been.
Very professional, and easy to work with, and very comfortable.  I trust their opinion and feel good about leaving my dental health in their hands!

Ronette Y. from Encinitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thompson and her staff are fabulous!  The dental hygienists are skillful and personable, and the receptionist is professional and flexible, always accommodating and polite. Dr. Thompson never seems rushed when she’s going over my dental health.  Instead, she listens well and is very knowledgeable and considerate of my feelings.Good music playing, too!

Cindy M. from Marina, CA (Source: Yelp)
