Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

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


My husband and I have been incredibly blessed to find Mesa Dental. We’d been searching for a local dentist that accepted our insurance and realized quickly that not all dental offices are the same. Most will try to up-sell dental care and make it very difficult and uncomfortable when you question them. But not Mesa Dental. Dr. Qadeer and his staff are incredibly professional. The office’s atmosphere is bright and friendly. Dr. Q himself is extremely personable and down to earth. I was very satisfied with his initial assessment and in no way felt like unnecessary procedures were being suggested. His bedside manner, if you will, is gentle and he checks on you constantly as he’s doing his work. He is thorough, a perfectionist even, which, in my opinion, is absolutely crucial if you’re hoping for results that will last you a good while. He and his right-hand staff work extremely well together and you can tell there is good rapport among them. I don’t even mind the almost 20 mile drive to get there because I know I’m in good hands. Doesn’t hurt that they play THE best music in there either. I have only positive things to say about Mesa Dental and highly recommend it for any dental needs.

So far this place is amazing! The doctor is so kind and accommodating and his staff is very professional. I absolutely hate dentists and dentist office and visits and I always feel slightly at ease coming here knowing I’ll be taken care of. Another great thing is they do not gouge your pockets. Prices are fair. Would recommend this office to anyone looking for a new place.

I am so glad that I found Dr. Qadeer. From the moment I stepped into Mesa Dental I knew something was different. The girls in the front were extremely friendly and were actually happy to see me, great attitude which made me feel at ease. After meeting Dr. Q, he advised me of my fillings that i knew i needed. He showed me pictures of my cavities and explained in great detail the reason for my fillings and the work that is going to be done. I was glad to see that he was only concerned with the major issues i had. He advised me to watch a few things for the future. After going over my payment options, I set up my future appointment for my fillings. All in all, i am very happy that i was able to finally find a honest dentist with a sense of humor and great attention to detail. Dr. Qadeer is even an avid soccer fan, not sure i agree with his teams choice but awesome to know that i can keep up with current events in the soccer world. Cheers to the staff and Dr. Qadeer. Will be seeing you soon.

The staff here are the best dental staff I’ve ever had experience with! Dr. Qadeer is very knowledgeable, explains EVERYTHING, and has great assistants, too! I’ve had major dental work ongoing about 9 years now and Dr. Qadeer is THE BEST I’ve ever had! I love that he explains things as he goes in a very simple way, keeps things light and fun, takes pictures of everything (so I can better understand what he’s talking about), is efficient and personable at the same time, and even has educational/funny screensavers to look at while you’re waiting (which is never a long wait!). For having been through so much dental/oral pain in the past in those cold dentists’ and surgeons’ offices with people that just start working away without even telling you what they’re doing, I especially looked for someone who not only had great experience, but who also had great people-skills and could help prepare me mentally before doing dental work (since my teeth are so sensitive now). He never cheats me out financially either and I appreciate the honesty. Dr. Qadeer’s practice and staff are top notch! Very clean office and work-space, upbeat & happy music, and I am always out of there within an hour. Shout-out also to dental assistant Jimmy: he’s funny, personable & does a fabulous job! If you’re looking for someone who knows what he’s doing and is an effective communicator with an ever-smiling staff, Dr. Qadeer is your guy! You’re in great hands!

Very impressed! Happy to have finally found a dentist that my family and I can (and will) use for years to come. Dr. Qadeer is personable and really knows his stuff! The staff is kind, friendly, and well-trained. The dental office is clean, open, and welcoming. It actually has a fun, happy vibe! I have been searching for a great dentist in San Diego for years and he is the one! Highly recommend!

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


I have to say I have had horrible experiences going to the dentist in the past. Hence the reason why now I must get several procedures done since I avoided going to the dentist for many years now. After having some pain, I went to Dr. Quadeer to have an exam. The end result was that a Root Canal was necessary. Just by hearing those words I got extremely nervous and anxious. Dr. Quadeer was very nice, he took the time to explain to me the procedure step by step and at that point I was able to calm down a bit. His supportive staff also made my dentist visit very comfortable. At the time of the procedure, he made sure I was very comfortable, and when the procedure started, I was not able to fill a thing! Not even when he numbed my gums. For the rest of the root canal procedure, I was just chilling even with my headphones on. After this experience, I have changed my mind about dentist visits and suppressed those horrible memories from the past when other dentists had a very heavy hand and would not completely numb my gums, leading to extreme pain and discomfiort. After the root canal was done, he explained to me the after care and what procedure was next. He answered all my questions in a very comprehensive and friendly manner. I was very happy about the whole experience. I am glad I was able to find the perfect dentist, staff and support for me.

I’ve only visited Mesa Dental twice but so far so good. My interaction with the dental staff, especially Benny, and Dr. Qadeer have been great thus far. Dr. Qadeer and his dental staff are thorough, quick and friendly. They definitely care and try their best to make you feel comfortable, as visiting the dental office could be scary at times. Front desk staff could be a little bit more friendly and welcoming as they give off a vibe of they don’t really care or are above you. It kinda made me feel weird when I walked in to see reception or had the interaction with the billing consultant. As I worked in hospitality in 6 years they could lighten up a bit, especially when their customers pay a lot out of pocket for services. However, I come here for the service the dentist and dental team provides. Side note: I do wish they are open on Saturdays or possibly open at 8 to help out with my work schedule as I’m always rushing to work right after.

I’ve lived in San Diego for 7 years and have been to 5 different dentists. It’s difficult to find a dentists who has the patients best interest in mind. Dr Qadeer is that dentist, he is extremely friendly and thorough with his work. He takes routine pictures to ensure that the patient knows exactly what is happening throughout the process and why they were treated. I never saw the entire process of a cavity filling unit I came to Mesa Dental, aside from being interesting I found it to be very reassuring that they cared about their work and the patients. Dr Qadeer takes his time with his patients and doesn’t rush through his appointments, he treats you as if you were family. I would say that their 5 star rating is not “faked” as someone mentioned, all of the staff is genuinely helpful and friendly. All medical practices can get complicated when insurance is involved but this is BY FAR the best dentist I’ve had in San Diego and I would highly recommend them.

The staff is so friendly! Always kind and caring. I always have a great experience when I visit for my appointments. Typically going to the dentist is no fun. Needles, drilling and accidentally biting your tongue and not feeling it til after the numbing goes away when you’re just trying to enjoy a carne asada burrito, or your drink spills out the side of your mouth and you don’t realize it lol. But for some reason, the staff at Mesa Dental make all the drama of post appointments not seem to matter. Their knowledge, experience and humor always make my visits warm and enjoyable. Even when the doc is cracking jokes during a root canal! I will always go to Mesa Dental for my dental needs. Thank you!

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


I can’t say enough wonderful things about Mesa Dental. My whole family are patients here and have had only 5 star experiences. I needed dental treatment and Dr. Qadeer and his office helped me get all of my treatments scheduled and completed in time for my orthodontic appointment. The staff is so friendly from the moment you walk in to when you leave. They treat me with respect and has helped me overcome a life long fear of getting fillings. The staff was so gentle they were able to get a full set of xrays for my 5 year old and helped him be excited to see the dentist again. The hygenist is an ANGEL! She made myself, my oldest son, and my husband as comfortable as possible while we each had deep cleanings and took extra time to help teach us the techniques we can use to help keep our mouthes as healthy as they can be. All of this was done with a great respect for our comfort and feelings. I like her very much and look forward to my next cleaning with her. Dr. Qadeer amazed me at each appointment with the work he did. Something I really appreciated was that he took photos of each cavity when he dx them. When he did the fillings he took in progress photos and then after photos! I LOVED that. It helped me feel like I was apart of the process and I trust the work he did. The dental assistants were so friendly and seemed to truly care that I was comfortable from start to finish. I recommend Dr. Qadeer and staff to everyone!

Lisa T. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved 30 min away from Mesa dental, but I decided to not change dentists, even though there are plenty of others where I moved, because they make you feel very comfortable and go above and beyond for their patients. They are a honest and truely great dental office. My teeth are sensitive to cold so when cleaning my teeth they switched the water container used to rinse my teeth to have warmer water just to make me feel better. You will not regret choosing Mesa Dental if you select them as your dentist

Dominique Enciso (Source: Google)


Mesa Dental is easily the most welcoming, friendly, relaxed and professional dental office I’ve ever stepped foot in. From the front office staff, support staff, head dentist, and everyone else in between. Their professionalism and care make me feel like I am always in good hands. I have grown to trust them 100%. I also must add that they’re super quick in making sure you’re serviced in a timely manner, never waiting around too long also perfect for the families always on the move. I don’t see myself having to switch anytime soon. I can’t recommend this office enough.

Ted D. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down, Dr. Qadeer is the best dentist I’ve ever been to! My wife and I only go to him now. I particularly appreciate that Dr. Qadeer goes out of his way to explain everything he is working on. He even shows you before and after pictures! The staff is very friendly and professional. Most importantly, they make you feel comfortable, especially for someone like me who was nervous about getting work done at first. If you have any reserves about going to the dentist, I encourage you to give Dr. Qadeer a try.

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


Awesome service, great staff. Came here for my first exam and cleaning in 6 years and after a really good and to-the-point consultation with Dr Qadeer he told me I had a small pre-lesion cavity. I came back a week later and literally in less than 10 minutes, that cavity was filled and completely gone without a trace. He and his assistant were like a Nascar pit crew with their tools and I couldn’t have been happier. Thanks for the great work guys!

Julia L. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Mesa Dental is GREAT! I used to be so scared of going to the dentist. First off because I always had pretty bad experiences with them (before Mesa of course) which made me distrust/dislike all dentists. However that all changed after I found Mesa Dental. Dr Qadeer and his team (Liz and Benny) are very knowledgeable and attentive. During my dentist work, Dr Qadeer was patient with me and took his time to explain everything to me before I needed to make a decision. I felt cared for as a patient :D. Another great thing was that none of my operations hurt that bad, (I’ve been through worse) and that’s probably because of Dr Qadeer skills. Also, I believe he does really good quality work. I am loving all the dentist work so far and I think I found my dentist :).

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


Let me start by saying that prior to visiting Dr Qadeer’s office, I had been avoiding dentists like the plague for about a 10-12 years. I have always had a horrible fear of the dentist, and a handful or more of bad experiences in the past with different offices had only exacerbated the problem significantly. The work I had done in the past always seemed shotty. The Dr’s and staff seemed very cold and calculated and definitely had no empathy for my fear. Not to mention, no one ever really took the time to stop and explain things to me thoroughly. Anyways, fast forward many years to 2018.. my wife had been nagging me forever to see this dentist she found a few years back. She had many similar experiences in the past but swore that Mesa dental changed everything for her! In fact she wouldn’t shut up about it. Haha so I finally allow her to convince me to at least give the office a shot and get an initial consultation. Mind blown! The second we walked in, the entire staff lights up! I felt like I was the guest of honor! Haha everyone was so incredibly warm and welcoming. Everyone was so gentle. They were playing excellent music (80’s.. which is always a plus).. and then for the grand finale.. I met Dr. Qadeer. My initial impression of him is well.. he is just about the sweetest man you could ever meet. He was very smiley and professional, and did not for one second make me feel bad about how long I neglected my teeth. Fact of the matter is I did need a bit of work done. He went through every single detail of my treatment, photos, etc. explaining to me what his recommendations were but never once pressured me about what work I wanted to get done and even gave us alternative options to best suit our budget. After my initial meeting with Dr. Q, I was sold. My wife and I trust him, his recommendations, and his staff %1000! We did decide to get all of the long overdue work done, which we did in small increments over about 6 months time. I have been to see Dr. Q. At least 6 times now and continue to do so! I actually looked forward to my appointment today! Boy have things changed. On a side note, Dr. Q only works with the best as well, and rest assured that if he refers you to a specialist, they will be of the same caliber you would expect from him. We have referred others to Dr. Qadeer on a regular basis, some of whom have already converted to “the other side” haha. If you are looking for a great dentist that you can trust, particularly if you have hesitations about dental work.. problem solved. Your welcome! From the front desk to the hygienists, to the the dental assistants, and the Dr himself.. you are all truly amazing people and great at what you do! Thank you so much for everything!

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


The service was excellence. I guess like most adults, I didn’t have a lot of positive experiences with dentists.  In truth going to the doctor was the emphasis,  going to the dentist seemed to be optional.  That was until your teeth started to rot.  Now as an adult I’ve found a dental office that is a complete contrast to what I knew as a boy.  The education I received when I go exceeds anything that I was given as a youngster.  You are treated with golden gloves. Your comfort and health, is definitely paramount for this friendly professional team.  When asked how I’m doing when having my root canal suprisingly I said ,”I’m ok I don’t feel anything”. Something I never thought I would ever say at a dentist office.   Definitely after the work done, I smiled….

I’ve had fairly bad experiences at dentist’s offices. I have a very small mouth by nature, and I’d had dental assistants be quite disparaging and outright rude about having to work in my mouth. As a result I hadn’t been to a dentist for an embarrassing amount of time before a friend recommended Dr. Qadeer’s office to me. Any anxiety I had about the visit were gone as soon as I walked into the office. The office itself is lovely, as are the folks working there–every person is warm and inviting. And Dr. Qadeer himself is just the friendliest, most informative person you’ve ever met. He knew immediately ailments I was likely suffering from as a Type 1 Diabetic and provided me with an amazing amount of information and statistics about dental care with attention I’ve never received from another dentist. That first visit I discovered that I needed two root canals and had some cavities (that’s what 5ish years away from the dentist will get you). The nervousness came back a little at mention of a root canal–was my small mouth going to be an issue again? But the team acknowledged my small opening with respect and in a matter of fact kind of way, instead of implying that it was somehow my fault or a burden (as past dentists had). And the root canal itself was a breeze!!! People had reacted to my news that I needed a root canal with looks of despair and fear, but I barely felt a thing! Dr. Qadeer and his team are heavensent and I cannot recommend them enough (honestly, I promptly recommended them to my sister, my sister’s wife, and my mom, and all three have gone and ALSO loved the team).

I have had the best experience at Mesa Dental. I have always had a huge fear of the dentist, until coming here. Everyone is incredibly friendly, caring and make you feel like your at home when coming in. They have helped me conquer my fears of needles and going to the dentist. I got veneers about 8 years ago and I constantly get complements on how amazing my teeth look. People are always shocked when I tell them they are not my real teeth! I now send my husband, family members and any friends who are looking for a dentist.

Jordee Lei H. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Qadeer and his staff are amazing and super friendly!! Dr. Qadeer is very thorough in explaining your xrays/pictures and helps you understand why you need his recommended procedures. Compared to my last dentist, Dr. Qadeer and his staff definitely have a more gentle hand and constantly check up and encourage you during the procedure (so far, I’ve had one cleaning and a crown done), which definitely helps through all the scary drilling! The office is very clean with more modern tech compared to other facilities (each room has a screen in front of you where you could see your xrays/teeth pictures/fun facts and dentist comics while you wait, cameras to take pictures of your teeth to supplement Dr. Qadeer’s explanations, etc). The staff will also help and work with you through your financial options. Overall very impressed and definitely recommend!

Eric G. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m just going to put this out there: I HATE getting dental work done! The drill…. Dr. Qadeer and his staff, however, are very awesome at their chosen professions! I hadn’t been to the dentist due to my illogical fear for over ten years. My mouth was looking like a crack addict’s. I had about 8-10 sessions to fix my broken molar, two root canals, two crowns, and a cavity, just for good measure. The first three sessions or so I was gripping the arms of the chair; I was tense and scared. After that, I was slowly calmed and soothed by Dr. Qadeer and his competent staff. These people are attentive, they care, and are funny, too! (Just don’t laugh too hard with a mouthful of dental equipment.) In addition to the aforementioned items, Dr. Qadeer’s billing staff was very generous and flexible when the time came to pay for my services. As a poor college student, I don’t have the thousands of dollars on hand needed to pay for everything at once. Instead, I had the price reduced, my insurance billed, and the remainder spread out on a reasonable monthly payment plan. Nobody wants to pay large bills, but at least I feel like I can manage this one. Besides, now I have a healthy mouth. Thanks, Dr. Qadeer and staff!! Keep on keeping on!

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


I have to be honest, there are two things I fear most in this world since I was a kid, one is a cataclysmic event and the other is going to the dentist. However after two years of being a patient of Dr. Qadeer’s Mesa Dental , I can safely say I have never never been to a more caring, friendly, gentle and patient dentist in my life! I have a serious phobia of dentists after watching Steve Martin ‘s portrayal of a sadomasochistic dentist in Little Shop Of Horrors. lol I am also EXTREMELY orally defensive, most likely thanks to that movie. Not only did Dr.Qadeer and his staff make me feel 100% comfortable but were also fast, efficient and did excellent work on fixing this king with a broken crown. Not only did he replace the broken crown but replaced it with a better crown of real gold for the same price as my original ceramic crown. (The price difference is astronomical!) I never thought I would recommend a dentist much less RAAAAVE about one but if you live in the San Diego area and have the means, I HIGHLY recommend Mesa Dental . Thank you Dr. Qadeer and Jimmy! You guys are the absolute best! Dare I say… I’m looking forward to my next visit. . #mesadental #smilebitch

My Mesa Dental experience was great! Dr. Qadeer and his staff were very friendly and down to earth. The office is very relaxing and they play great 80’s music while you wait. My dental needs were very unique in that I needed to replace a failed front tooth with a dental implant. This process took several months to complete but the result was very satisfying. I have an awesome smile and I can now bite into an apple with no pain or discomfort. If you haven’t found a family dentist yet, please check out Dr. Qadeer office. He will treat you like family.

Jessica T. from Huntsville, AL (Source: Yelp)


If I could give Dr. Quadeer and his staff more than five stars, I absolutely would. I was referred to Mesa Dental by a co-worker at the end of 2015 after experiencing ongoing pain in my back molar. I was one of those people who lacked dental insurance, so I kept avoiding routine visits. Not smart, I know… I ended up needing some work done (small cavities, plus a crown on the molar that had been giving me pain). I was able to sign up for Mesa Dental’s plan for those without dental insurance, which helped astronomically. I am so thankful that they offer plans like that to people who really need them. My overall experience was nothing but phenomenal. Dr. Quadeer and his entire staff are beyond professional. You instantly feel as if you have known them for years. I’d be lying if I said I have always walked into the dentist office with a brave face, but every visit that I made to have work done, they made me feel 100% comfortable and at ease. They go above and beyond to explain every detail and every procedure. Dr. Quadeer even uses a special camera to take high-resolution photos of the work performed, before and after, which is pretty cool. Dr. Quadeer is highly professional, personable, and I would absolutely recommend him to family and friends. His work is top-notch, his staff is amazing, and I am so happy to have found them. Unfortunately, my boyfriend and I will be relocating in one month, but I will continue to refer my San Diego friends to this awesome practice. Thank you, Dr. Quadeer and staff, for providing such a seamless experience and for really caring about your patients! Keep up the wonderful work.

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


Just went in for my initial consultation with Dr. Qadeer and, although it looks as though I have a good deal of work needed (which was not a surprise), I am extremely happy that I made the move from my previous dentist. The office is immaculate, welcoming, and creates a high expectation that the service will be provided at the highest level of professionalism. The financial arrangement included an unexpected and very helpful discount that makes the work much more affordable. Granted, Dr. Qadeer hasn’t done a stitch of work yet, so this review isn’t complete, but if my impressions are right I imagine that I’ll be writing another glowing review in about a month when I walk out of the office with a new healthy smile.

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


My first Yelp review goes to Dr. Qadeer and his staff. I applaud them for excellent service! Before coming to his office I had been bouncing around from one dentist to an other because of how unsatisfied and unhappy I felt each time I left their office. I have extremely sensitive and small teeth. I am aware of the condition of my teeth. Not once did Dr. Qadeer make me feel uncomfortable or bad about myself (unlike others). Instead, he listened and showed great concern. He offered options and was very respectful of my wishes. Today I went in for TWO root canals on my front teeth. After reading such negative comments about root canals I was extremely nervous and scared, not going to lie. Lisbeth must have noticed because she immediately calmed my nerves. Dr. Qadeer addressed all my questions (regardless of how silly they may have been). He explained to me what would happen and if at any point I needed him to stop to just let him know. The procedure itself was quick and not as painful as I imagined it in my head. It was quite painless actually. After two same day root canals, I can assure everyone that they are not as awful as led to believe. Dr. Qadeer is professional, respectful, courteous, gentle, and caring. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family. I am due for a few more procedures. I am confident that my experience will be just as great as today’s. Thank you Dr. Qadeer and staff!

Jenna W. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am absolutely terrified of the dentist but Dr. Qadeer and the other staff made it a pleasant experience. I have had lots of people tell me that root canals are awful but I can assure everyone that they are not. I recommend Dr. Qadeer to everyone especially those who are like me and are terrified of the dentist. After all my dental work, all I wanna say is thank you to Dr. Qadeer and everyone else who has helped. Before I came to the dentist I had so many teeth problems. I was in constant agony and was always taking pain relievers. Now I don’t have to! There isn’t any more pain! Thank you!!

Ashley L. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Started my dental journey back in August after moving back from Asia. I went in super nervous, but mainly embarrassed because I’d not stepped into a dental office in 10 years. I found Mesa Dental through a coworker and could be more pleased!!! From the moment I stepped in the door I’ve received nothing but quality service. I cried at my consolation from embarrassment due to the state of my mouth but mainly because I felt so supported by Dr. Qadeer and his team. I was reassured that everything was fixable and that they were there to help, I felt super comfortable, informed and cared for through the whole process. They worked with me tailored my treatment plan to be accommodate me. Since my first visit I have raved about my experienced and have referred my whole office. Today I came in for my first Invisalign tray and couldn’t be more satisfied. Service remained consistent across the board. Dr. Qadeer and Jimmy were super accommodating to my teeth sensibility and we’re constantly checking in with me to see if I was feeling okay. I have always left the office feeling confident and reassured that I am one step closer to my perfect smile. 100% recommend, no hesitation!

Update: the dentist called me personally to better understand why the office did not get 5 stars. He had me come back in for a more detailed consultation to plan the treatment of my teeth. Way to go Mesa Dental! Stars updated to reflect their good customer service and care for quality. Everyone was very nice. But, I made an appointment for an exam and cleaning and did not get a cleaning or explanation why not. I needed to speak with the dentist about my teeth and the plan to fix them but he was in such a hurry to move on that he developed his own without me and then left the room. I need surgery and orthodontics in order to fix the severe overcrowding, but he didn’t even take enough time looking at my teeth to see that. Then I am handed an estimate for over $6000. Nice does not equal quality. I am going to look to a dentist who will involve me in the plan to fix my teeth. Or at least stop talking long enough to hear what I expect the outcome to be similar to.

Over the years I have went to several dentists that were horrible, either trying to get as much money for me, called me a big baby because they were hurting me, and/or had horrible bedside manners. Decades of smoking and not having regular dentists visits finally took a toll. I had to have major dental work in order to get my dentures (I won’t say more as it is so embarrassing). Anyhow, Dr. Q had to do the surgery in two parts because of my low pain tolerance and high tolerance of local anesthesia. He was concerned for me and didn’t want to overtax my body. He was EXTREMELY helpful with my aftercare and even CALLED ME the day after the second part to make sure I was ok. Dr. Q is the best dentist I have ever met! I sooooo wish I had met him sooner! He’s kind, caring, funny, and VERY COMPETENT! He has a GREAT STAFF too–Benny, Jimmy, Veronica, and Anlyse (forgive me for forgetting more names) His staff is very much like Dr. Q himself, kind, caring, funny, and offer great customer support. As a business owner, I know how important customer service is–it can make or break your business. I look forward to my new smile and dental health. Thank you Dr. Q and team for your kindness and support. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family.

On a scale of 1 to 10, Mesa Dental tilts off of the chart of excellence. Two years ago I visited Mesa Dental for an assessment of care and cost . When I walked out of the office, I walked out with the made decision that I would have to search a little bit longer for a Dental office that would be adequate for my dental needs. 1 year later, I was back at the office of Mesa Dental convinced that Mesa Dental (Staffed under the guidance Dr. Quadeer)  surely was the best office of choices. I researched from the south of the border, to northern california for a dentist that would be an appropriate for the dental care i was in need of. While every dental office I visited had the same claim of excellence, it was the remembrance of the chair-side manner of Dr. Quadeer that compelled me right back to the Mesa Dental office. He illustrated an untouchable measure of professionalism, sincerity, pleasantry of the craft, and individual personal interest in patient comfort and satisfaction. He even personally gave me a call to my cell phone with a welfare concern post dental work. If you are looking for a Dentist who approaches your dental needs with sincerity,Dr Quadeer and his staff will not leave you disappointed

Mark D. from Spring Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let’s face it, going to the dentist isn’t fun. Sometimes it’s expensive and sometimes it’s painful. This is just the nature of the beast, no matter which dentist you choose it will get unpleasant at some point. I guess you can tell this isn’t my favorite activity. Before going to Mesa Dental I hadn’t been to a dentist’s office for 12 years, despite having insurance. I went to Mesa Dental to have a broken tooth repaired. Since then I’ve kept up with my regular every 6 month appointments. So what makes the difference? It’s the people. The staff at Mesa Dental is excellent and Dr. Qadeer is knowledgeable, friendly and takes time to explain what’s going on and what to do about it. I still can’t say going to the dentist is something I like but the staff at Mesa Dental make the experience more bearable.

Going to Mesa Dental was the best move my wife and I have ever made! Dr. Qadeer and his entire staff are caring, friendly, have positive attitudes and treat their patients with impeccable respect. I first went there for what I thought would be a routine teeth cleaning. They took extensive X-rays and then I met Dr. Qadeer. He was polite, yet concerned. Unknown to me, because in the past I had my teeth cleaned and examined every six months with my previous dentist, I had several serious issues. Several crowns needed replacement, one of which had a hole in the top of it along with a cavity. Another tooth was severely cracked. None of these had caused me pain. Dr. Qadeer took a video picture of the areas that needed work and then showed them to me on the TV attached to the dental chair. I do not know how my previous dentist missed all of this, but with the video pictures I was shown, and the instant trust I felt in Dr. Qadeer, I believed him and decided to move forward with the work. Dr. Qadeer was also concerned about cleaning my teeth. He was foresighted enough to ask if I had any surgeries in the past year because he was worried about me getting an infection. In fact, I had a total right knee replacement less than a year ago. Because of that, he prescribed an antibiotic (approved by my orthopedic surgeon) to take before any further procedures could take place. When I went to my first appointment, I was very nervous as I have had less than pleasant experiences in the dental chair. Dr. Qadeer and his dental assistant were understanding and calming. Before I knew it, the work was done. I had no pain or discomfort during the procedure and when the Novocain wore off, there were no problems at all. I am almost 72 years old and have been to many dentists over the years, but none come even close to Dr. Qadeer and his staff at Mesa Dental. Without hesitation, I whole-heartedly recommend them. You will see what I mean if you have the good fortune to go to Mesa Dental.

This place is great. I’ve been seen as a patient about 3 times now. The service is definitely a step up from corporate dental offices, where they nickel and dime you. Dr. Qadeer is professional and courteous. He honestly tells his opinion about certain options and procedures, and he always leaves decisions up to the patient. My previous dental office would just say “you need to do X, okay will that be cash or card?” It always felt so sleazy. Dr. Qadeer, on the other hand, will always say “my professional opinion is X. If you want to proceed, set up an appointment with the front, and we can consult more in detail.” Keep up the good work!!

I had a wonderful experience at Mesa Dental with Dr. Qadeer, for multiple reasons. 1. State-of-the-art technology and office design They take pictures of your teeth and illustrate exactly what they are doing and why. The office is very open, light and comfortable. You never feel abandoned in this office. 2. Thorough explanation of procedures and excellent bedside manners Dr. Qadeer was very friendly and helpful in explaining exactly what they were doing and why. I felt comfortable and taken care of throughout the entire procedure. I had three teeth that needed fillings, one that was deep and two that were superficial. He used anesthesia on the deep tooth and I did not feel any pain or discomfort while he did the filling. For the other two, the doctor suggested that we do the fillings without anesthesia, because they were not deep and there would be no pain, and this would save me from having to make a second appointment. He was clear that it would be no problem to use the medication if I preferred. I decided to go with his suggestion and he was completely right – there was no pain, and I am super glad not to have to schedule another appointment for the filling. 3. Prompt service I never had to wait more than 5 minutes at the office. I happened to be assigned Dr. Qadeer and Mesa Dental through my insurance, and I am super glad that I was. I am planning to move to Orange county next year and I think I will keep this doctor and drive down to San Diego even though it would be an hour drive.


Our goal is to satisfy each of our patients' dental requirements under conditions of comfort and ease using the latest technology. Instead of using complicated, outdated film to take X-rays, we begin each appointment using a digital sensor to take X-rays of your mouth. This kind of sensor utilizes considerably less the radiation than the traditional method in order to generate extremely detailed photographs, which can then be displayed instantly on each of our projection screens. From there we can manipulate each X-ray in order to best explain the dental health issues present in the patient's mouth. Mesa Dental utilizes the most up-to-date image resolution technology, as well as other advanced techniques, to provide the very best services that cosmetic dentistry has to offer in this day and age. Cosmetic Dentistry treatments typically focus on improving the appearance of the patient's overall smile. While traditional dentistry focuses on function and necessity when considering dental procedures, Cosmetic Dentistry is focused on elective, optional procedures to improve aesthetic features of the smile.
