Nancy A. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Although I had dental insurance for more than 15 years, I rarely went to see a dentist because I hardly had any problems with my teeth, and I hate going to a dentist. But all that changed after my first visit with Dr. Michael Maude. I had been to see a couple of dentists in previous years, and every time I left feeling disturbed and angry after my first visit. I felt disturbed because I did not feel that their diagnosis was true and that much work was needed, you see I had excellent insurance, and I was angry because of the way the dentists or their staff talked to me. They were condescending in demeanor and short in explaining the what’s and whys of the procedures that they are recommending. On the other hand my experience at Dr. Maude’s office was the opposite. From the first minute I stepped into the clinic I was greeted cheerfully, was treated with respect and kindness. Dr. Maude explained and showed me everything that was needed to be done, and during the procedures he told me step by step what he was doing and what to expect. He kept asking me if I was okay and should he proceed to the next step. I felt I was in charge and not just lying there with my numb and open mouth helpless. I highly recommend Dr. Maude and his staff. Nancy A.

I can’t believe how nice a dentist visit can actually be. I’ve been going to the same dentist since I was 5, and then he retired several years ago and Dr. Maude took over the business. I was apprehensive about the change in ownership, but it turned out to be a great move!! Dr. Maude is just fantastic. It wasn’t until recently that I had to have actual dental work done (before it was only teeth cleanings up to this point), and Dr Maude assured me that the process was going to be smooth, effortless, and virtually pain free. He was great in that he explained the entire process as we went through it and he even stopped to make sure I didn’t have any questions. Couldn’t ask for a more caring dentist. Not to mention that the rest of the staff is absolutely incredible too! They all treat me like family and they’re always keeping up on my life; it’s nice to have that type of professional and friendly customer service from a dentist’s office. Couldn’t ask for more from a dental office.

Last week I visited Dr. Maude’s  office to get my teeth examined. I’ve always been very nervous when it comes to the dentist, but this place made me feel at home!  The receptionist Kaitlin was friendly and welcoming. Adriana did my X-rays and was so sweet and gentle. Then Bree did my exam and measurements and she too was super gentle and friendly. Every step of the way they talked me through it so I was never worried or wondering what was happening.  Dr. Maude was amazing. He was very gentle with my mouth and teeth during my exam and cleaning. I wasn’t even sore afterwards!  He made me feel so comfortable and educated me at the same time. I’m now going to send my friends and family there because there’s no other dentist that I’d rather go to.  I would definitely recommend this incredibly kind staff for anyone who needs to go see the dentist. Thank you Dr. Maude and your staff for a awesome experience and to help me overcome my fears of the dentist!

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


Best family Dentist in San Diego!  Dr Maude and his staff are always professional and calming.  Lets be honest…nobody wakes up in the morning singing yippee yippie I have a dentist appointment today.  But since we made the switch to Dr Maude, I look forward to the teeth cleanings and preventative appointments.  They are quick and efficient.  When we do have dental work that needs to be addressed, Dr Maude does high quality work.  In the past my kids had a couple horrible dentists and they would always fight me on making appointments.  Now they don’t resist at all.  If your current dentist isn’t 5 out of 5 stars in your opinion…you should give Dr Maude a try.  I highly recommend him and his staff!

My entire family and I very much enjoy going to Dr Maude’s office for our dental care. There are (6) of us ranging from teens to seniors and we all love Dr Maude. He has the best bedside manner! He is so gentle and very thorough. He and his team are very organized. We have only had great experiences at Dr Maude’s office! If you’re looking for a dentist, you should definitely try Dr Maude 🙂

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


Okay, the selfish side of me wants to keep this place to my small cirlcle, but if ever a place deserved an excellent review this is it. Now, I am one of those that never really understood people who had a doctor or dentist that they had to go to and would even be willing to pay out of network to stay with…I always thought it was silly to pay more. But now I understand. Dr. Mauad’s office is one of those places. Everyone I have referred and who has visited Dr. Mauad, has ended up switching their whole family over to his office. The Doctor and his staff are extremely friendly (not fake or in that creepy overly happy friendly, they must be trying to hide the fact they have a dungeon at their house type friendly). It is more of that Leave It to Beaver/small town type vibe. Okay, for the cynical lot of us who did not grow up in a small town, that can still feel creepy but not to worry. It is just they’ll remember your birthday, if you just got married, had a child or whatever event you may initiated in discussion in a previous visit. Should come in handy when the anniversary rolls around! (No they don’t talk to you about these things when your mouth is full of x-ray tabs or flouride) They also handled all the insurance research and paperwork, I have never had to do a thing which is a nice change of pace. Are you one for whom trips to the dentist illicit thoughts of scenes such as in Marathon Man? “Is it safe?….” Yes. All the work that I, or my friends or family, have had done there has been excellent and painfree. If you get there early you can pop in the massage chair if it is unoccupied to help ease your tension. After your appointment, you will get a carry home case with toothpaste, toothbrush, floss and other goodies. Then you will tell your friends and family about this awesome little dentists office.

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


I have been using Dr. Maude for may years now and have gone in for  anything from cleanings, cavities and whitening testaments.  Ever time I go in I am warmly greeted and feel safe in what can be a scary environment.  The Doctor is one of the nicest, friendliest, most carry individuals who makes a point of astablishing friendships with he’s clients.  I was very nervous about getting one of my procedures done and Dr. Maude made a point of numbing me fully (so there was no feeling what so ever) as well as talking to me to help calm my nerves before starting with the procedure.  I feel very lucky to have found such an amazing dentist. 🙂

I’ve had dental issues every since I was a young child, mainly because of decalcified molars and the inability for Novocaine to numb me. On my first visit to Dr Maude, we had to replace a crown on one of these molars. I told him I’m impossible to numb. He did it gently and on the first try. This is the first time ever any Dentist has been able to numb me and for me not to experience pain during the procedure. He is so kind and gentle. His staff is equally amazing. The seem to have the ability to read his mind and know exactly what instrument he needs. Obviously well educated and experience people. I’m now taking my whole family to him.

David I. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


After around 20-30 cavities, I have a lot of experience dealing with dentists. Dr. Maude is easily the best out of the three I’ve had over the years, and he has filled at least eleven of my teeth. In the past cavities have always felt quite rough and often painful after a trip to the dentist, but this is nowhere near the case with Dr. Maude. He uses the right amount of anesthetic (which was a problem with my last few dentists) and he is quite fast with his operations. I’d rather something be done right than quickly, but with Dr. Maude these are one and the same. This is a very impressive dentist.

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


I have just spent 3 seperate days in the past week in this dentists office getting my teeth cleaned, then whitened, and filling three cavities. I have to share with everyone that Dr. Maude is amazing. He’s not only professional and great at what he does, but he’s super nice too. Someone before me posted that he was like a ninja and i couldnt agree more. I felt absolutely no discomfort during my three fillings. I didnt even feel the one shot he gave to one of my teeth. My fear of dentists office is over now. Would give 10 stars if possible.

Diane J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had bad experiences with dentists for most of my adult life, enough that I immediately go into a panic attack and suffer from extreme anxiety.  In May after another traumatic experience I was given Dr. Maude’s address and phone number.  His office personnel is wonderful, their demeanor when you walk through the door is very soothing and needless to say that in 4 months I’ve been to see him 4 times and I’m no longer paranoid of dentists.  Thank you Dr. Maude for changing my dental life.  I’m forever grateful and now loyal to only you and your wonderful staff.

Karen M. from Lakeside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Maude before he was even there!  Never would I think of going elsewhere, since there is nothing they could do better.  The hygienists have always been gentle and encouraging.  They take plenty of time to make sure you understand everything and are comfortable.  Nobody likes to go to a dentist, but Dr. Maude and his staff make it downright pleasant!

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


My whole family loves Dr. Maude & his staff ! Always friendly, they make you feel like your family. This is one of those special dentist offices that you take your kids to and years later they still don’t mind going to the dentist. If you need the loving care of a great dentist, hygienist and office staff, this is your place!

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


I may be a dentist connoisseur, if that’s a thing. This may get long but I promise it’s worth the read. TLDR; -REALLY FREAKING NICE -VERY CHEAP/AFFORDABLE -GENTLE -IN METLIFE NETWORK -GENUINE -DOESN’T LET YOU DROWN IN SALIVA I went to the office on Carmel Mtn Rd. I’ve had braces for the last year & a half (in which I was also pregnant), needless to say my gum sensitivity was at maximum pain capacity. He was so kind and gentle, my gums didn’t bleed. Even when he scraped off the excess glue that my orthodontist left on my teeth from my braces. AND most importantly he was frequent with the suction– as were his assistants. Which I was really thankful for because most places will let you nearly drown in your own saliva. You know how most dentist offices ask you a ton of questions about your personal life then make it obvious they don’t care? Dr. Maude is such a genuine person that our conversation was comfortable and friendly. He definitely leaves a lasting impression. I’ve tried almost every dentist in Mira Mesa and on Miramar rd. Not only do most of them tell you they accept your insurance, but they neglect to say that they aren’t in network. (Which ultimately means you have to pay more out of pocket.) Dr. Maude is in Metlife network (Listen up military folks) and the only thing you have to pay is your co-pay. He’s very affordable and not overpriced. Over a year ago I got whitening trays at my former dentist for over $300 and right now he has a special going on for $99. Regularly over $100something–which is still cheaper than most places for the same whitening brands.

Richard S. from Lemon Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had  been dreading having my wisdom teeth out for fifteen years, even when I worked in a dental office I refused to have them out , finally the headaches became to much and I consulted with doctor Maude and in less than an hour he had all four out with absolutely no pain he was like a ninja and not only was there no pain I swear it was like a gentle massage that was very relaxing, he had me in the chair 30 seconds after I got there and talked me through the process in great detail which I loved, I’m writing this during my recovery period and even though the meds have worn off I still have zero pain just a little tenderness, the office is very high tech and it shows that he invests in his patients and himself, I Found the Dr. by total accident (and stayed to talk with him because he had the cutest receptionist) but It was the best accident ever. If you don’t believe me and want to see the work he did or hear the story for yourself I’m sure they can arrange it!

Tony K. from El Cajon, CA (Source: Yelp)


There is a reason Dr. Maude gets the perfect score on Yelp. Having been through several dentists in the San Diego area after I moved here 5 years ago, I finally had the luck of finding Dr. Maude. He takes great care of his patients and he does not push services that are not needed. Almost all of the other dentists told me that I needed “deep cleaning” before they would even do anything else. This didn’t happen at Dr. Maude’s. Despite the gum recession, he believes that my gum (and teeth) are perfectly healthy and regular cleaning would do the job just fine. The rest of the staff reflects his philosophy of delivering quality care to his patients. Dental visits have now become a fun twice-a-year routine where I feel like I go to see friends (trust me, they remember you and your stories). Give Dr. Maude a try, you’ll be happy you did.

Adia A. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


THE.BEST. !!!!!!! It takes a really great dentist to inspire confidence in their skills, judgment, and integrity in their business practices all at the same time but Dr. Maude has. Not once since I started being seen by him last summer have I ever thought about going to another dentist or missing an appointment. Full disclosure here: I have had a deathly ill fear and avoidance of dentist since I was a child which has resulted in a lot of expensive and embarrassing problems for me. This doctor and his staff has compassionately offered me help, support, and encouragement while we fixed them. This dentist is not a bs’er and he is super conscientious and knowledgeable. I am lucky to have him. You should check him out!

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


Dr. Maude is the absolute best dentist I’ve ever had. My 12-year molars grew in decalcified as a child. I’ve been having crowns put on and replaced for nearly 40 years. Novocaine doesn’t numb me. He was the first dentist ever to be able to numb me on the first try. He is willing to wait for the long time needed for me to get numb. He is very careful and patient, stopping often to make sure I’m not feeling any pain. He is a strong supporter of the community as well. Not just a great dentist, but a great person!

Martin Vaughn (Source: Google)


Dr. Maude and staff are fantastic. I received outstanding service and results for each procedure. Each procedure was thoroughly explained and performed. My needs were foremost on the staffs mind during the process. Dr. Maude’s office kept constant contact concerning upcoming appointments and expectations. I recommend Dr. Maude and staff because of their excellent service.

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


Dr. Maude is THE BEST DENTIST. I’ve been going to Dr. Maude for a few years now, and have referred several people. Dr. Maude has done 3 fillings for me. The first was about a year ago, the tooth had a large failing amalgam (silver) filling and I feared may have needed a root canal. But Dr. Maude cleaned it up and restored it beautifully, and since then, I’ve had no problems with the tooth. I had the other 2 fillings done a week ago. I couldn’t figure out which teeth out of 4 possible culprits were the cause of my specific sensitivity- it was only when I ate fruit. I went in thinking I needed several large fillings done, but because Dr. Maude is skilled and experienced, and did an investigative exam, he explained his diagnosis and narrowed it down to 2 teeth that just needed each a one surface filling- and now I can eat fruit again without pain! Dr. Maude practices true conservative dentistry, and he only treats what needs to be treated. I have worked in the dental profession for several years in San Diego, and I have been to many dental practices, but Dr. Maude is THE dentist I trust for my dental care. He also employs an excellent team of skilled, caring dental professionals. Kaitlin (front office) will help you with all of your scheduling and billing needs, Andrea (dental assistant) will take excellent care of you in the dental chair, and so will Bree (hygienist) with her thorough, gentle cleanings. Their pricing for dental treatment is very reasonable, scheduling is easy, office(s) are clean, they respect your time, and Dr. Maude performs all dental procedures with confidence, skill, and success. He is also always nice to see because he is kind, gentle, caring, and fun!  And BONUS! He shares his seasonally available fruits he grows in his back yard- his figs, guavas, and key limes are heavenly… you’ll find them in a basket at the front desk 🙂

Ahreeman X. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maude Ages Like Wine! As an Anti Dentite (Seinfeld), who has a very low opinion of dentists, I have to admit not that I have found my dentist for life but this dentist also gets better by the age to the point that it seems like he ages like wine! After being his patient for a number of years and establishing that he will be my dentist hopefully for life, I figured that my little Sun Goddess is not a kid anymore, but she is a pre-teen young lady; therefore, it is time for her to shift from pediatric dentist to an adult dentist. In addition, I am more comfortable for her to see Dr. Maude. If Dr. Maude had passed my obsessive-compulsive perfectionist test and taste and has my seal of approval, then he will be good enough for the Sun Goddess. Sun Goddess has officially switched her dentist to Dr. Maude and this way I also have a peace of mind.

Simeko C. from El Cajon, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent as always!  I am very happy that I found Dr. Maude.  He is honest and does fantastic unhurried dental work. His dental work shows that he is committed to his patients oral health and wellness .  Working along with Dr. Maude he has an office of friendly, professional, and knowledgeable staff members.  Finally, his office is clean and inviting  which is why Dr. Maude and his staff deserve nothing less than 5 stars.  Thank you Dr Maude for work well done.

One of the best Dentist’s I’ve ever had. Dr. Maude always takes time and care to ensure your filling and dental work are done properly. The fillings I’ve had him complete feel better than the original teeth, and so far not a single one has fallen out or had problems. I have terrible teeth, so I’m very happy to have Dr. Maude as my dentist!

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


I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Maude.  My 11 year old son had a tooth abscess and our regular dentist was closed.  Dr. Maude got us in right away.  My son was crying because he hates needles and dental work in general.  He was saying he didn’t want to have it pulled and could we come back another day.  Dr. Maude did a great job of putting him at ease and was very patient with him.  When it came time to numb him, Dr. Maude made sure my son couldn’t see the needle so he wouldn’t freak out.  A few weeks later my son needed a filling and asked if Dr. Maude could do it because he was so gentle.  He again was upset and nervous when we first got there.  He asked to see the drill and Dr. Maude showed it to him without the bit, again so he wouldn’t freak out.  He answered every single one of my sons questions in an appropriate manner for his age, giving him info, but not too much.  My son asked if we could switch to Dr. Maude after these two experiences, and we are.  My brother in law, who is also not a fan of dental work, recently had some work done by Dr. Maude and was equally impressed with his demeanor, patience and professionalism.  He is an excellent dentist who I cannot recommend enough.

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


I just had my first dental work done with Dr. Maude. All my life I have had trouble getting numb for dental work and have often needed to get many injections during work to stop the pain. I told Dr Maude this before he started and he mixed up some amazing solution, gave it to me once in a few places to make sure it covered all the nerves, and I never suffered any pain during the procedure. This is the first time that this has ever happened. His assistant, Andrea, was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what to do when and how to help assist. She made and put on the temporary crown for me and did a wonderful job of fitting it. Next, I has Vanessa clean my teeth. Usually, my gums are screaming after a cleaning. She was so gentle, but thorough. She took her time to make sure all the stains from my past smoking habit were removed. Then she also noticed I had dry mouth and recommended a special rinse I could use and gave me some free samples. I could not recommend Dr Maude and his staff more highly. They are amazing, gentle, kind, and accommodating. Finally I won’t dread going to get dental work! -Brigette Rosendall

George G. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


I was bad… i moved to San Diego a couple of years ago and “forgot” about going to the dentist (yeah, I’m not alone in fearing those guys). I started having trouble with my sinuses and my eye, which an MD looked at and suggested it’s actually a tooth “gone to the dark side”… so, I should see a dentist. My wife had done the research about dentists (yup, she’s better about this than me) and gotten several references about Dr. Maude. She decided Dr. Maude was “it” and had a couple of great visits (fast and comfortable)… she suggested I go there. OK then… I called Dr. Maude’s office and was in on the SAME day (they fit me in over their lunch break !!!). It took 3 visits to get the root canal, crown, and cleaning… but I’m as good as new. No fuss, no muss… VERY different than what I was “afraid of”. The killer about all this was I offered to pay up-front and wait for insurance reimbursement because I hadn’t (obviously) used my dental benefit and didn’t know which company had the insurance. They really (nicely) insisted that it was their job to chase down insurance companies and would only take a promise that I wouldn’t “disappear” on them. I don’t really (still) like dentists much. But if I WAS going to start, it would be because of Michael Maude. I can’t recommend Dr. Maude more highly. A fantastic experience.

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


Dr. Maude and his staff are the best-professional, caring, and kind. I was referred to Dr. Maude by a coworker, as I was looking for a dentist and had many bad experiences with dentists. Dr. Maude is amazing. He has treated my cavities and have come to my rescue during an emergency situation, and put on gorgeous veneers on my teeth. He is a very kind and gentle dentist. My husband also sees Dr. Maude and always comes home saying how great he is. He is a great dentist for the entire family.  Both of his office locations are clean and comfortable.

Maria T. from Encinitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maude is the Best Dentist!!!! I have never written a review before. But my experience with Dr Maude was so outstanding I needed to tell the world, “If you don’t have a dentist go to mine immediately and if you do and aren’t exactly happy, trust me on this you will never not want to go to the dentist again.” What work I had done was not a walk in the park either. I had a wisdom tooth pulled and a root canal. The horror stories I heard about both procedures kept me from finding a dentist. And finally I couldnt take the pain anymore and found Dr Maude. And it was one of the best days of my life. That man took care of my pain, my fears and most importantly my teeth. All with an ease, a kindnss, an understanding and an explanation for all he was doing to make me feel better. He is an outstanding Dentist and a caring man! Ladies and Gentlemen Boys & Girls need a great dentist…Go see MY dentist Dr. Maude and I promise you the best experience with dentistry you have ever had. Very Happy Pateint, Maria D. Terris

Larry H. from Winchester, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have very sensitive teeth, every Dentist I have been to in the past has been unable to provide adequate anesthesia during my dental procedures.  Dr. Maude has completed two permanent bridges and crowned 10 of my front incisors, no pain – my grille is amazing and I have never received the professional and courtesy before.  I have 12 years of no fear for the drill.   No problems with any my crowns or bridges.   Michael is my dentist for the duration.

Kathryn H. from Lakeside, CA (Source: Yelp)


When we heard that our dentist of 30+ years was retiring we began to worry about his replacement.  By the second visit I knew everything would be fine.  Dr. Maude is not only a great dentist – up to date on all new technics – but he is so very caring about his patients comfort that he and his staff make you feel right at home.  Great experience and it feels like family.  I highly recommend Dr. Maude and his staff.

David I. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maude is easily the best Dentist I have experienced. He has identified and filled quite a few cavities I’ve acquired over the years (as have a couple other highly reviewed dentists prior to my switching over to him.) I would easily rate him higher than the other dentists I’ve experienced. He is quick, efficient, and has a very fine attention to detail when remolding/filling teeth. Dentistry is important to someone like me with constant problems with cavities, so this recommendation does not come lightly. Good dentists are very hard to find, but yeah… here one is.

B. Z. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Not a lot of folks enjoy going to the dentist, I absolutely hated it.  Turns out, I just had some pretty bad dentists in my adult life.  Not kidding–every visit to Dr. Maude’s office has been pleasant, especially those involving the drill.  I believe this is because I had experienced such pain and problematic work in the hands of others, I am astonished every time I leave, having felt nothing more than the tiny prick of a pin.  And if being supremely gifted at his craft wasn’t enough, he’s funny, and not just “dentist funny”, actually funny!  And all of the staff I have interacted are fantastic, too, always smiling, friendly, helpful.  I used to pick a dentist for convenience’ sake, whoever was closest to the office at the time.  I now drive way out my way to go to Dr. Maude and it’s the best dental decision I’ve ever made.

Kimberly D. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first root canal last week and was SO nervous, anxious, all of the above. Dr. Maude was so kind and reassuring. He talked me through the entire procedure so I knew what was coming and could prepare for it. I felt nothing and was amazed at how quickly it was all over. The staff is super sweet also and helpful. My husband was supposed to meet me at an appointment to watch our baby but was running late. The receptionist was so great and watched my son for me in his carseat until my husband arrived. She chatted and played with him and it was so sweet and helpful. I totally recommend this great dentist and staff!

Danielle B. from Southcrest, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I felt very comfortable coming to Michael Maude for my dental work done. On a holiday they were open to take me in for tooth pain emergency(which was the only place open!) He’s very up to date on his dental practices and would recommend to anyone! I had a tooth pulled and it was super fast and painless until the serve pain kicked in after the anesthesia wore off I had to call them back to get pain medication.

Naomi R. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maude is the most kind and compassionate Dentist that I have ever met.  I took my 7 year old daughter to him to treat a blemish on her front permanent tooth that she was very self conscious about.  Dr. Maude greeted us in the waiting area and chatted with her and made her feel so comfortable and eased her anxiety.  His clinical and administrative staff are very welcoming and efficient.  My insurance and quote of payment owed was done in just moments after my arrival.  Dr. Maude gently removed the blemish from her tooth and you would not have even know that it was ever there.  He did beautiful work.  If you are looking for a kind, gentle and highly skilled Dentist and staff then look no further than Michael Maude, DDS.  I highly recommend and will definitely be taking my family back.
