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

Maricela Murillo D.D.S and her wonderful staff have been providing my husband and me with the very best dental care for over 10 years.  Every one in the office is honest, knowledgeable, professional, efficient, careful, thoughtful and considerate.  We have frequently been referred to specialists and I am pleased to say that Dr. Murillo receives glowing reviews by the specialists that see her work.  That is the highest form of praise.  We feel so lucky to have such an accomplished dentist.  We, as seniors, have had almost every type of dental work imaginable.  The temporaries were well made and cemented and in some cases the finished crown was available the same day.

The offce staff is professional. Dr. Murrillo’s work is beautifully detailed. Being a new patient, I was grateful to find that she is patient in explaining her work and my options. She does not rush through the procedures. The rest of my family will be coming here.

I highly recommend Dr. Murillo and her knowledgeable, efficient, caring staff! Recently I placed my elderly (92 year old) mother into Dr. Murillo’s care. She has had several unhappy experiences at other dental offices and was emotional prior to her appointment. However, Dr. Murillo and her staff were a calming influence and provided us with a dental care plan that is appropriate for my mother’s age, physical and emotional condition. As we left the office, my mother told me that she had confidence in the doctor and felt she truly cared about her and not her insurance. If you love someone, send them to Dr. Murillo!

Absolutely LOVE this dentist and all her staff! My latest appointment was to get a crown and it went very well. I was able to get the entire process done in one day and left with my new permanent crown solidly in place!! I’m very happy that I didn’t have to get a temporary crown and then come back! The receptionist, Cassi, greeted me with a big smile and was very welcoming and nice, which made me feel like a valued patient. Angel, the dental assistant, also offered a big smile, was very nice, and made sure I was as comfortable as possible. She also gave me some super cool sunglasses to wear so the bright light didn’t hurt my eyes. Dr Murillo came in with a big smile, welcomed me, and was very reassuring through the entire process letting me know I was doing great (which made me feel good since keeping mouth open that long is hard especially with the added sound of a drill!). Brenda, the crown specialist (not sure of her exact title) also did a great job, she was very patient and took the extra time to make sure my crown was cemented well. All in all, this was another great experience for me with this dentist office and I highly recommend them.

Dr. Murillo has been my dentist for approximately 5 years and I have to say this has been the best experience! All the staff are super friendly, personable, and treat you like your family. Dr. Murillo is very knowledgeable, personable, and goes above and beyond to make you well informed and provide any necessary care. I have peace of mind knowing I’m getting the best care when I go here.

I was so happy from the moment my wife made an appointment.  Super friendly staff and They were able to see all of us on the same day. Due to our busy schedules we aren’t able to come by that often. The dentist there took care of out needs right away. I want to say a big thank you to Pricilla for making our visit so comfortable and assisting during my wife’s procedure, as she can become easily frightened by the dental sounds and tools. Over amazing team ( A + Team ). Will refer to friends and family .

Elaine F. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really love everything about this dental office from my dentist, Dr. Murrillo to the hygienists to the dentist assistants to the receptionists. Everyone is friendly, welcoming and know patients by first name. They do such a good job at making me feel as if I was visiting friends every 3 months who so happen to clean my teeth as well. Not only that but their work is incredible bon or my procedures have ever hurt or gone wrong. They always call, text and email me reminders about my upcoming appointments. And post procedures such as fillings and crowns Dr. Murrillo herself calls me every time to see how I’m doing. This dental office never fails, only me with flossing.  If you’re looking for a dentist in the area come here! If your looking for a densist and you think this is the places but it may be too far, its worth the drive. You won’t regret it

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


The office at Dr. Murillo’s is nice and small and they pay so much attention to your needs! Awesome customer service! The staff is so friendly and very professional! I love that Dr. Murillo calls you the day after your service has been done to check up on how you are doing! I’ve never had such a thoughtful dentist 🙂 I definitely recommend!

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


Me and my wife have been searching for years for a good Dentist, and finally we have done it. I can’t say enough about Dr. Maricela and her staff. Two words come to mind WOW!! & AWESOME!! Everyone there is so professional and actually make going to the Dentist a great experience, wow I can’t believe I said that about a Dentist Visit. But, it’s true I had wonderful experience everyone talked to me in a professional yet caring manner, made me feel at home. From the first moment you walk in Kelly and others are on top of things and greet you like you walked into your own house. Then Brenda took over she was Awesome and made the x-rays enjoyable. Then Jennifer cleaned my teeth, which was actually not bad at all, she did a wonderful job and made it very painless. Shawn was great to talk as well. Out of 1-5 Stars i give them 5 Stars a brilliant Dr. Maricela and Staff. Bravo a stellar job well done you guys. I thank you a bunch Dr. Maricela and Staff 🙂

Dr. Murillo and staff are so nice and friendly. They do their best to make sure you are comfortable and that your experience is as pain free as possible. They do great work. I have had everything from cleanings to crowns and I am extremely happy with all the work I have had done.

Peter G. from El Centro, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Dr. Murrillo for many years. I actually drive an hour and a half one way to my appointment’s. I have had many cleaning’s and procedures done at her office. Most recently she saw me right away when I called complaining of a bad toothache. She immediately referred me to a specialist the same day for a root canal. I can’t thank her enough as I was in a lot of pain. Her staff is very friendly and courteous and I always feel at home when I come for an appointment. I highly recommend her for all your dental needs.

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


I’ve been going to Dr. Murillo for years and have never been happier with my dental experience. The office is always so clean, the women who work here are so awesome that it makes it….enjoyable and inviting. Yes I’m talking about my dentist….crazy, I know! My fiancé goes to Dr. M too and feels the same way. We actually moved to Northern California but I have continued to go to Dr. Murillo…they are that good. They do quality work in such a professional manner and it happens to be in a great environment too, or maybe it’s just the people who work here. Did I mention that they are all great?!? Dr. M does meticulous work and genuinely cares about her patients, it shows. I’ve had half my mouth redone with crowns and her work is top notch. I highly recommend her and her entire staff, they really are the best Dental Office I’ve ever been to.

Walter K. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


When my wife moved from Los Angeles to San Diego she needed to see a dentist so upon the recommendation of a friend, she went to see Dr. Murillo and has been going to her for the last 15 years, she truly loves her! She knows she’s in good hands when she sits in that chair because she trusts Dr. Murillo’s skills, attention to detail, and gentle approach to dental work. My wife trusts the work of this dentist so much that when her son needed complicated dental work she recommended he drive up from Los Angeles to see Dr. Murillo. He did and since then he makes the long journey, staying with us overnight, to see Dr. Murillo. Check her out, according to my wife, she’s the cat’s meow!

Amazing staff; friendly; best numbing shots I have ever had probably because she numbs the gums first with lidocaine gel of some kind? Have questions or want information about procedures or insurance the staff will tell you right away or find out for you. I have had excellent referrals out to other specialists and those specialists are impressed by D.D.S Maricela murrilo’s work as well.

I have been going to this dental practice for decades prior to Dr. Murillo taking over. The staff is amazing, notably Kelly at the front desk and hygienist of the millennium Carol. Since Dr. Murillo has taken over she has introduced the most cutting edge technology and has brought the practice into the 21st century. She is a very kind woman and seems to truly care about her patients needs.

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


Very responsive staff! Friendly from the moment you walk in and the keep you best interest in mind when it comes to taking care of your mouth/teeth! They even remember your birthday every year with a nice card/greeting!

Joe S. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I shattered a molar and needed immediate attention – I would need a crown. And with no dental insurance, I knew this would be expensive. Because for years, all my dentists seemed more interested in my money than my teeth. And it always felt very ‘assembly-line’ to me – very impersonal. So I went to Yelp to look for the dentists with the most good references, but most of what I found were larger practices with busy schedules, no quick appointments, and high prices. I always feel like when you find the right one, you’ll know it, but these places just left me feeling cold. Then I remembered a good I’d had with a guy who’d done my root canal years earlier, so I called his office and asked for a recommendation. They gave me the name of Dr. Murillo and highly recommended her. So I called her office and from the beginning, I had a good feeling about it. I believe they have an all-female staff, and everyone here is not just warm and friendly, but extremely competent and professional. And what I found both surprising and appealing was the way this business was run; they operate out of a converted house, and it feels like one big happy family that just happens to work together. (Some of them even vacation together!) Everything is immaculately clean, modern and up to date, and you’d have a hard time finding nicer, more decent and sincere people. (It’s probably clear that I was feeling the love, right?) By the end, I’d required four appointments, all of which went smoothly. And not only was I very pleased with their work and their prices, I felt as if they’d invited my into their home and into their family. (And I’m not quite sure, but I think I may even have received a family discount!) A trip to the dentist never felt this good before. So thanks again to Kelly and other nice lady who works the front desk, and to the fabulous and painless dental assistants Brenda and Angel, and of course a special thanks to Dr. Murillo for putting together such an amazingly impressive team and operation. I think I might actually miss going to the dentist. Maybe if I just shatter another tooth….;)

I am usually not a fan about going to the dentist. However, this dentist makes you feel comfortable and part of the family. I love my hygienist Jen she’s the best and the office staff is warm and friendly. Prices are reasonable and they don’t try to sell you unnecessary dental work. My whole family goes to see her. I highly recommend them.

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


I recently needed to get a crown replaced. I have been going to Dr. Murillo for years but only for teeth cleanings. Her and the staff surpassed my expectations!  My new crown looks amazing and all of the staffs attention to detail was wonderful!  I was surprised when Dr. Murillo personally called me the day after to see how I was doing. I hope would highly recommend this office for any dental work!!
