Jim V. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently saw Dr. Lynch for an annual check up and teeth cleaning.  Dr. Lynch was very professional and able to complete all necessary  procedures during one appointment.  I was very impressed with the thorough exam, cleaning and her detailed explanation of what I needed.  All the staff was pleasant  and courteous.

I have had excellent experiences at this clinic. The staff is friendly, doctors and technicians are competent, and treatments are explained to the patient very well. Here it seems that doctors actually appreciate good dental health of the patient, instead of seeing it as an opportunity to sell expensive optional extra treatments (like done in other clinics, unfortunately). I can highly recommend this place.

I am terrified of dentistry in all its torturous forms. Even a routine cleaning is normally a dreadful experience. However, Dr. Lynch’s competency and bedside manner help put me at ease. She gets me through every appointment. Thanks Dr. Lynch for being an awesome dentist!

The doctors and staff here are really nice and caring! I see doctor Kajian once a year and doctor azimi twice a year for my cleaning. My appointments are very smooth and the staff called me after one of my procedures to check up on how I was doing. I’ve been coming here for 4 years and wouldn’t trust anyone else with my teeth. I think going to the dentist can be uncomfortable for most people, but the folks here make it a good experience.

Nate D. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Their staff was highly trained and very professional. Everyone went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and the wait time was not very long at all to actually get into the exam room with the dentist. They whitened my teeth for me and the results look excellent! I’m very pleased and will be going back to them for future visits.

I have been going to this dental practice for a while now and it has always been a great experience in terms of service and the care provided.  The staff and expert dentists make you feel at ease and leave you with a squeaky clean/fresh mouth. Recommend this place to anyone looking for great dental care!!

Evelia E. from Chula Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


From the front office staff to the dental assistants to the dentists everyone is so wonderful and helpful here. I had about 3 different procedures and everything went smooth the dentists are great! Yvonne was very helpful scheduling my appointments and guiding me through my dental benefits it was so easy to work with her. I am so happy I found and office with such great dentists who know what they are doing! Much appreciated.

I always have a pleasant experience with La Jolla Dental. I have been getting my teeth cleaned here for many years. Very thorough with the exams and cleaning. Front office staff is very friendly and upbeat!! I highly recommend La Jolla Dental!

Matthew A. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I had a dental emergency while staying with my family in La Jolla over the holidays. Unfortunately, I broke my front tooth in half and I was in urgent need of a dentist. I came across La Jolla Dental Group which was recommended to me by a friend. The office is very accommodating and scheduled my appt for the same day service, which is greatly appreciated! I had my front tooth capped that day and you cannot even tell the work is so well done. Overall I am very happy with my visit, I highly recommend this dental office!

I really enjoyed my experience. I confess to being a “little” dental phobic. I hadn’t had a cleaning or visit in over 2 years. Dr. Lynch & her staff put me at ease. Before I knew it my teeth were clean & I learned I was cavity free. Dr. Lynch did a great job & I will definitely be going back before another 2 years goes by.

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


I just started going to La Jolla Dental Group this month, and I am sooo happy. So far, I just went to get my teeth cleaned because a co-worked told me how good they are, and she was right.  I love the atmosphere and they were very easy to make an appointment that fit  my work schedule.  Overall I have no complaints. The hygienist also was very VERY good.  She was friendly and took time to make sure my whole mouth was cleaned!! Soon I have to have major work done, and I feel confident that I will be in good hands with Dr. Kajian! Sincerely, Anthony Russano

VERY ACCOMODATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  One of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had a dental office! I’ve been in town for the last year on business and purchased my voucher through Groupon last week. $49 for an Exam, x-rays, and cleaning when it’s usually $300. The office is modern, high-tech, clean, and comfortable. The doctor went through my diagnosis with me step by step to make sure I understood what was going on. She answered every question thoroughly and used digital imaging to explain my condition to a tee. I don’t have dental insurance, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect for the total cost of my treatment. However, they worked with me and they offered their interest free financing. THANK GOD!!!!!!! I can make my payments without having to worry about interest. Great to have that option for patients that can’t pay all at once. Her staff was warm and worked with my schedule to make sure I completed my treatment before I have to go back to North Carolina. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS OFFICE!

Stephanie J. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this office! I’ve had a painlessly root canal and cleaning performed here. I always feel very comfortable and was someone afraid of the most dentist since childhood. They are very gentle and care about your comfort. I highly recommend!

Dr. Lynch is a wonderful dentist! She is honest and caring, and where other dentist may jump to drill and fill teeth, Dr Lynch takes more of a watchful approach. She has also been able to guide me through teeth straightening and whitening, as well as ensuring my dental hygiene and teeth cleaning are as good as they can be. Our whole family see Dr Lynch, the youngest is 3 years old. I would not hesitate to recommend her as an excellent dentist.

Rudy A. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred by a friend to this dental office and had an accommodating, convenient, and comfortable experience. When I called for an appointment, they worked with my schedule and got me an appointment. People were very nice had no problems feeling comfortable. Would Def go back and also recommend a friend. I’ve seen bad ratings on some places that are extremely nice and also do great jobs. So don’t believe what you see until you actually live it.

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


I have been coming to La Jolla Dental Group for quite a few years. It is always a positive experience. My adult children have been coming here since they were small, and now my young grandson is a patient here.  I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Colin R. from Naperville, IL (Source: Yelp)


La Jolla has me as a recurring customer as I had a great experience here last time I came through. Another great experience yields a five star! ONLY downside is distance from home, but the staff was attentive and was able to answer questions I had in regards to my payment plan and progress on prior payments. Knowledgeable doctor and great dental work makes the trip worth it! Colin

Greg B. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


What to say about this place… Its simply the best of the best! They are extremely professional and competent as well as kind. From the first moment you step inside you feel welcomed in a friendly environment as if you where at home. I highly recommend this place to anyone that needs dental care in the whole SoCal region, simply the best!

Kimia H. from Hilo, HI (Source: Yelp)


Normally the dentist is not somewhere I look forward going to however, after visiting this office in La Jolla I have began to feel differently. I was just amazed at the wonderful service they had, the easy going yet professional attitudes of all of the staff and the straightforwardness of the dentist told me exactly what she was doing so I was aware which helps a great deal with security. Looking forward to my next visit! 🙂

Sean H. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have never had a bad experience here.  Obviously the dentist has never been one of my favorite destinations but when i need a cleaning or check up this is where I come because I know I can depend on friendly, thorough, and professional dental work!  Nothing to complain about here!
