Best practice in San Diego area. I have been going to Doctor’s Dhir office for a few years now and his staff offers top customer service. I ended up seeing someone different for my cleaning this year and she was personable and professional. From the person who greeted me at the door to the person who checked me out at the front desk, always friendly and willing to help with my dental needs. Protocols for your safety are in place at all points and that just gives me peace of mind. I thank the staff and doctor Dhir for maintaining such a level of service throughout the years and will be

Dr. Dhir has provided dental care for me since 2015 when my previous dentist retired. I was interested in finding a practice that used modern equipment and procedures. Dr. Dhir had recently moved his practice to a new building. He, his staff, and his office seemed like they would fit my needs. My previous dentist had told me that my four old crowns were in need of replacement. Because of this I was not surprised to get that same assessment from Dr. Dhir. He was very patient and spent much time discussing my x–rays and the care I needed. I am retired and do not have dental insurance. The work to be done was expensive by my standards. Dr. Dhir’s office manager helped me understand the financial options available to cover the costs. Dr. Dhir’s office is very pleasant. It is airy and open and comfortable. The entire staff makes certain that patients are at ease and treated well. I expect to have a long-term relationship with these people.

I am generally very nervous about dentists and dental treatment (even a simple cleaning freaks me out). The doctor and support staff at this office are extremely friendly and made me comfortable from the start. Since then, I have had dental cleaning and crown fitted with them. They are very thorough with their procedures. My insurance covers their services and the breakup of payment (my share vs. insurance coverage) was clearly explained before treatment was set up. Appointments are fairly easy to obtain. Overall would recommend them to everyone. I am not nervous about dentists anymore!

Dr Dhir and his staff always take very good care of my teeth and gums. They really do want to see improvement in my gums, and they gave me helpful & detailed instruction on how my home cleaning & flossing can be better. I had Bernadette clean my teeth at my last visit and she was wonderful. I highly recommend this dental practice.

Thanks for taking such great care of my littlest rascal, Barrett, last week. Your patience and creative approach to examining a 2 year old’s teeth was admirable to say the least. I know, just like Jocelyn, he’ll be begging to go see you soon. Fear of the dentist is not a “thing” at our house. I attribute that to your amazing demeanor and care for patients of all ages.

For over a decade, they are the best! They’re always on time, always professional, and always kind. I love the dentist (weird, I know) but if you don’t? This team will make it okay. Their chair-side manner is exceptional. And the staff has been there forever (not to make us feel old). I think the low turnover really speaks to their leadership (Yay Dr. D!) and the environment. And, the office itself is beautiful. Clean, spacious, modern, and relaxing. Really!

Doctor Sanjay Dhir and his team are by far one of the best Dental practices I have experienced in my 20 years living in this country. They are professional, friendly and have taken care of all my dental needs.Also, I appreciate Doctor Dhir’s work ethic and the fact that “he does not cut corners” as he once uttered during a visit. They are knowledgable, accommodating and have done a great job in the last 3 years.

I had gone to a different dentist for years. Then, 2 weeks after a routine check up with x-rays, I tooth chipped badly. My old dentist gave me a price, with insurance for fixing that one tooth. I went to Dr. Dhir who took an x-ray, which clearly showed substantial decay in the adjacent tooth. He gave me a price for fixing both, with my insurance, that was substantially lower than my old dentist. When he opened it up, and showed me with the mirror, it was quite clear that the adjacent tooth was quite bad. I am so lucky I switched!! Also, his hygienists are very thorough.

While visiting family in San Diego I experienced complications from an extraction and bone graft procedure performed prior to my trip. Based upon glowing reviews I called Dr. Dhir’s office and was extremely fortunate to find myself the recipient of his considerable expertise and kindness. I visited him twice during my stay for needed adjustments and each time he listened carefully and afforded relief that enabled me to comfortably enjoy my stay. It’s apparent that everyone in the office is dedicated to the highest standard of care, and I could not be happier.

Dr. Dhir and his team (MaryAnn, Sebastian, Tammy, and Vesta) do a fantastic job and have been my trusted dental team for a couple of years now. My favorite aspect of his practice is how Dr. Dhir takes time to explain to me his recommendation for treatment needed, and how quickly and competently his team facilitate and support him. Additionally, the team are all excellent at what they do and it’s clear that Dr. Dhir relies on and values them as well.

Pio P. from La Jolla, CA (Source: Yelp)


if there were 10 stars i would happily give them all ten!!! They are the best and i have “tried” many dentists. The entire staff is so caring. They listen when i ask questions! Dr. Dhir is so professional and so so understanding!!! the entire staff are “real people” I would recommend this dentistry office to my family and best friends…… amazing how they maintained their awesome attitudes and abilities through these trying times of covid!

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


Dr. Dhir and his amazing staff treat their patients with such compassion; I feel so comfortable that I could visit every day. Everyone is happy and positive and that shows in their treatment of their patients. I always feel that I am the top priority and my overall health is always at the forefront. The staff is most accommodating to my every need and they go out of their way to take care of you. The new office is also so amazing; every detail taken into consideration to make you feel relaxed and calm. One of my most favorite part of the new office are the pictures on the wall. When I came to learn that Dr. Dhir took most of them I was in awe because he is not only the greatest dentist but also an extremely talented photographer! The pictures will transport you another place and what is really cool is the pictures are local! If you are looking for the best dentist and a team of professionals that will surpass your every expectation, call and make an appointment .. Even just to stop in and say hello to San Diego’s finest!!!

Honestly the best dentist I have ever been to. Made me feel heard and cared for as a patient. Focused on not only dental health but mental health as well which made me feel like I am in the good hands of kind people. Also the least painful!! I hate getting the numbing shots but this is the first dentist where I really didn’t feel a thing. Numbs up with gel, small needle injection, then actually waits till your numb before going in with the big guns. If you are looking for a new dentist, this office is excellent. (they also keep the office peaceful with some jazz and Norah Jones )

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


Love this place. Great dentist, great staff, perfectly outfitted. Let me just say, I found Dr. Dhir through my insurance company and he’s right in my neighborhood. Every interaction I had whether it was with the office staff, dental assistants (Sabastian rocks) or with the good doctor himself was exemplary. Oh, did I mention that they have a top of the line, ultra cool milling device that works like a 3D printer to make crowns? Well, they do and it’s awesome. My new crown fits perfectly. Go to these people. You’ll be glad you did.

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


I’ve been with Dr Dhir for a few years. Perfectly happy. Had a tooth go sour that was an anchor tooth for a lower bridge, not good. Had bridge removed and had both anchor teeth replaced with implants. New bridge was made and placed. Now it feels just like it did before the work. We timed everything to more the best for me over two insurance years. Great work good people. What they say in life, ” you get what you pay for” and I got the best!

Take this from someone who neglected dental work for long enough that I’ve been to Dr. Dhir’s office literally 7 or 8 times in the past year for cleanings, fillings, a root canal and crown. The Doctor is a pleasant guy with a good “bed-side manner,” who will explain the reason for any work he recommends. His hygienists are all equally kind & skilled people, who go above & beyond to make you comfortable. And the reception desk is super helpful in making sure you understand your bill & your insurance payments, plus keep you on schedule with visits. Overall great dentist experience!

I had a great experience with Dr. Dhir and team! The staff was all very friendly and the office was nice and clean. I never had a dentist take the time to do such a thorough dental assessment and actually explain everything he saw to me. I look forward to returning to this office for future cleanings and appointments!

Dr. Dhir cares deeply for his staff, and that care is passed right on down to all of the clients at his practice. They have been working together for years, and it truly shows in how fluidly they work together to get the job done perfectly every time. I had a poor experience with dentists in my childhood, mostly due to my own sweet tooth and knack for getting new cavities, and I never realized that a dentist visit is something to actually look forward to! Dr. Dhir wants to know your concerns and whether you are comfortable at all times. He even noticed a small twitch of my foot once, which led to me admitting that I was still feeling some pain, but didn’t want to admit it. He quickly set aside his current equipment to provide me with more anesthesia. I’ve also always been curious about what is actually going on during a dentist visit, and Dr. Dhir’s team is more than happy to explain every step of the process, even if only to distract you from the inevitably less pleasant aspects of dental work. Everyone is well educated, patient, hygienic, and so personable I am always sad my procedures are over so soon (even a 4-hour root canal and crown treatment!). So far I have had an emergency root canal and crown treatment on my molar, several fillings, and root canal and crown treatment on my front tooth, and several cleanings. I hate to admit I’ll surely be back for more, but I’m also impatiently looking forward to my next visit. Thank you, Dr. Dhir and team!

This is a great dentist for people who have anxiety about dentists. Dr. Dhir’s level of care is impeccable. From the new, clean, calming facility to the state of the art equipment, like laser deep cleaning they are first class . They even have the ability to do a crown in a single day. Add to that Dr. Dhir’s KIND, patient demeanor and friendly, accommodating staff, and this place is top shelf. HIGHLY recommend!

Dr. Dhir and his team are AWESOME! I used to dread going to the dentist, but now I don’t even sweat it! He makes you feel so comfortable, and really takes the time needed with all his patients. You can tell Dr. Dhir and his team REALLY care about their patients and hold themselves to a very high standard! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Dhir to ANYONE looking for the total package: a dentist who is extremely skilled, knowledgeable, detail oriented, professional, but also kind and caring!

Recently had my first trip to the dentist in six years at Dr. Dhir’s office. His examination was extremely thorough and he made sure to explain everything about my teeth and overall dental health while he was completing the exam. He even talked to me a little bit about my depression, and so it’s clear that he cares about all his patients not just as customers, but as people.

I am going to to Dr. Dhir from last 5 yrs along with my family. He is one of the finest doctor I have consulted. He listens to his patients carefully, works very well on their treatment plan. He knows what he is doing and a champ in his field. I recently got some cavities filled up and several cleanings…. Its amazing. His staff is also very cooperative and nice. Thanks Dr. Dhir

Fantastic dental experience, that I highly recommend. Dr. Dhir and the entire team are professional, knowledgeable and caring, and they do great work. I had an urgent need to have a broken molar repaired and they saw me in short order to have it completely fixed … including a new permanent crown … in one quick visit. Thank you!

Dr. Dhir and his staff have been incredible! Based on recommendations, I came to them with many concerns about past experiences at other practices. They listened and have gone above and beyond to ensure my experience is top notch. The office staff is friendly, organized, and highly knowledgeable about various insurance policies. They crafted a plan based on my specific coverage. What a relief it is to visit the dentist with a peace of mind knowing Dr. Dhir and his team are experts in their field!

Emily P. from Livermore, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had a few visits at Dhir Dentistry and love their entire staff! Jennifer is so friendly and helpful when making appointments and working with insurance billing. I have seen both Dr. Dhir and Dr. Robinson and feel very comfortable in their care. MaryAnn is a wonderful hygienist who I look forward to seeing every visit. The staff is very personable, remembers details about my life and even gave me a Coffee Bean gift card to celebrate my birthday. Highly recommend for all dental needs!

Dr Dhir is a member of the San Diego County Dental Society, the California Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. "I come from a family of healers and dentists; my great grandfather was a surgeon in the good old days. My grandfather, mother, and father were career dentists. I am a people person who believes in dignity and respect for all. I love what I do daily: dentistry is like a religion to me; it lets me make a difference in people’s lives, be creative, and provide the setting for social interactions with my community. I like to enjoy my time at the office: I spend more than half my waking hours here. If I don’t have fun, then life would be a total waste. So my team members and patients have become close friends. When I am in the office, I am at peace with myself- it’s a happy, kind of loud, but not so serious environment. I love interacting with my coworkers, and they are like family to me; we have the best laughs together. My wife of 20+ years is a full-time scientist. We have two amazing kids and an adorable dog. The kids are growing up too fast, so we try to do many different things together. My passion, after dentistry, is photography. I love taking pictures of anything and everything. I enjoy hiking, travel, soccer, and cooking. I am also an excellent bartender."
