If I could rate Dr. Hayatt 10 stars I would!! He is so compassionate, patient, knowledgeable and truly cares about the work he performs. If you could have a “spa” experience for your teeth, then he is it! I had (3) root canals, (4) crowns and a deep cleaning and he made all of those procedures the most comforting experiences I have ever had in a dentist chair. My crowns feel excellent and his attention to detail and thoroughness has not only made my smile better, but I feel confident in the fact that my teeth are much healthier as well. His staff is so caring, the office atmosphere is so welcoming and calm, plus the upscale feel and brand new equipment makes the quality that much more worth it. If you have any anxieties about visiting the dentist and/or you want to ensure that you have the best quality of work performed, Dr. Hayatt is your go-to person. Trust me, he’s 1000% worth every penny!

The staff and doctor were incredible. Friendly, professional, helpful. Made me feel right at ease. They also work with you to help find the best way to go about treatment. The office is beautiful and clean (they even have massage chairs in their exam rooms). This is my new dental office for sure!

I didn’t even have to tell him what tooth was hurting because he knew right away which one it was. Got a root canal and a crown done in 2 weeks. It was a great experience and he is my go-to dentist indefinitely.

Moved to San Diego recently and have been searching for a family dentist.. Well let me tell you, I FOUND IT!! Dr. Hayatt’s office is beautiful, high- tech, the staff is super friendly and helpful, and my visit went so seamless. Parking is very simple and convenient. Hanza their Hygienist is so awesome, my teeth felt thoroughly clean, and most importantly she made sure I was comfortable throughout my cleaning. I will definitely recommend my friends and family! 5 BIG stars to Dr. Hayatt and staff!

Naia Z. from Mid-City, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I decided to personally give this office/ Dr. Hayatt a try since he treated my Mom, and we couldn’t be happier with her services. I was seen at his newer location that has brand new high- tech. Equipment. I was happily surprised with the high level of care, honesty, and customer service I received from him and his staff. I’ve had other dentists recommend that I ‘fill’ some of my molars that have staining due to my tea/caffeine intake. Dr. Hayatt, had a different approach and actually removed my staining with the cleaning I received! I am so happy with his level of knowledge and willingness to help. Thank you so much, Dr. Hayatt and staff! I highly recommend.

Dr. Hayatt is a gift from heaven in my opinion! It is so hard to find a good, reliable, trustworthy, and most importantly, knowledgeable dentist. I had fillings that needed to be redone, and it was hands down the most painless, easy, and actually enjoyable experience! The TVs he has on the ceiling completely take your mind off of the procedure you are having done, he has state of the art equipment, a friendly, well trained staff, and a very clean and gorgeous office, with nice, new equipment! I have found my dentist for life, and couldn’t be happier! Thanks Dr. Hayatt and staff!

I was looking for a new dentist after my insurance changed when I had an emergency and needed to get in fast. Thankfully they got me in the next day. Dr. Hayatt and his staff were exceptional in their customer service and treatment.  They made my treatment a priority ensuring I was comfortable and informed throughout the procedure.  Beautiful office and excellent staff. I will be referring everyone I know!

I’ve been seeing Dr Hayatt for about four years or so and he’s been a great dentist. He and his staff is always very friendly, very polite, professional and knowledgeable. I used to dread going to my dentist appointments twice a year but that changed after I switched to Life Smiles: nothing but positive experiences. On top of that, Dr Hayatt and his staff were very accommodating when I had a filling that broke away after biting something hard, and were able to see me the very next day and get it fixed right away. They really care about their patients, and based on the positive experiences I’ve had, I highly recommend this dentistry.

Claire C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hayatt and his staff are very professional and it is obvious that they know what they are doing. The front office staff is very polite and makes the appointment much less stressful. Dr. Hayatt takes the time to explain exactly what I need done and he is one of few doctors that recommend treatments based on what I need not what makes him money. Most people have written bad reviews because they are upset that certain treatments do cost a lot of money, but are either unwilling or unable to pay. Dr. Hayatt recommends treatments that will benefit the patient not to rip them off. He is very highly educated and it is very obvious he knows what he is doing, and he shows that he cares about his patients dental health. I would highly recommend this doctor to anyone, including children and adults, and you will not regret your decision.

Dr Hayatt is swift, brilliant, and kind! I couldn’t afford a white cap for one of my cavities because Obamacare doesn’t cover it. The silver cap would have expanded and caused other problems so he gave me the white for free! He told me I didn’t need numbing bc it was my enamel he was drilling into to place the fill in. At first I was hesitant and scared but of course he knows what he is talking about! Just felt cool sensitivity like he said! He filled it in five minutes or less! How kind of him! I have been seeing him for years and he has always exceeded my expectations :)! Go see him! UPDATE 06/06/2019 Just had Dr Hyatt take out my two top wisdom teeth :). The hardest part was getting my gums all numbed up and that wasn’t bad at all since they were numbed before the shots came. The extractions took few minutes. Incredible! It was so easy! Idk why people get sedated or dramatize this minor procedure. Not trying to dismiss or invalidate anyone. Just make sure to get it done by someone you trust who has experience-for me that is him 🙂 Dr H and his staff are awesome!! Highly recommend!

Dr Hayatt and staff are very professional, informative and personable. I had a broken filling/molar and had it taken care of the same day. This is the first time I felt comfortable at a dentist’s office and I definitely will come back.

I love the Dr. He was very down to earth, personable and respectful. He was great with my son. He explained to me what needed to be done and made sure I understood. I would highly recommend this Dr to anyone.

Asja Camille J. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samuel Hayatt and his team welcomed me with open arms. I needed 3 wisdom teeth removed & Dr. Hayatt did it within 3 minutes with no pain at all. I was very nervous when I scheduled my appointment up until I got it done and did not even need to worry at all. Thank you Dr. Hayatt!!!
