Philip B. from Escondido, CA (Source: Yelp)


So far I have had several visits to this office. First off, this is the first time visiting a dentist in five years for me. After basically being shunned by my previous dentist, and treated poorly when I came in for work to be done, I had such a bad experience. I didn’t even want to finish the six cavities I had left to be ground out and filled. That was five years ago and left me in a shy state coming to these guys. Well, after a cleaning in September, and removal of my wisdom teeth yesterday, I can say I could have not had a better experience. I was not shamed for needing some work done, mostly just a result of taking poor care of myself in my early twenties. They treated me with respect, have helped me set up a game plan/time line to get the work done I need in a reasonable amount of time that matches my budget and my insurance plan. The work I had done on my wisdom teeth went extremely well, this is considering two of them were horizontally impacted and grown very close to the nerve in my jaw. I was at risk of losing feeling in my jaw after the procedure, either temporary or permanent. While I am still somewhat numb 24 hours later, it has improved and my hopes of recovering fully are very good. I can only thank the talented team that was there to have done such a stellar job. Looking forward to the next calendar year to continue with the rest of my work needed. Thanks guys! You rock.

Dr. LeFebvre has been my dentist for many years and not only do I completely trust him and actually ‘enjoy’ my visits (never painful and goggle movies are the best), I get many compliments about my teeth and smile, and that’s what having a great dentist is all about. Thank you Dr. LeFebvre!

Mike & his staff are truly 5 star! I’ve been his patient for nearly 17 years now & He’s great! My teeth are in excellent shape due to his remarkable care and state of the art technology! Caitlin, his top notch Hygienist is very gentle & personable! Absolutely love her & look forward to getting my teeth cleaned! The office is stunningly beautiful and the environment makes you feel at ease. If you’re looking for a dentist, I highly recommend Dr. LeFebvre & his group.

Needless to say finding the right dentist is key! Having moved back to NC I actually did a little research and was lucky to find such a good dentist! We had a lot of hard work with implants and my teeth not properly cared for! He actually lost money a several visits just because my mouth was particularly difficult to navigate around existing issues while putting in new permanent teeth! I moved my wife from her dentist into his office and he completely restored a lifelong overbite with a simple invisiline procedure! Our whole family couldn’t be happier and he’s highly recommended by me, a 3rd generation San Diegan! Much thanks!

Great office! I’ve lived all over San Diego and have had multiple dentist over the years. Dr LeFebvre is by far the best I’ve had. He is well seasoned in his practice and it’s very obvious based on his knowledge and actual services I’ve had. You can tell he’s picky about who he hires as his dental assistants and his hygienists too. Every part of this practice is professional even the front desk is a pleasure. I will go no where else . Somehow he made my fillings and crown enjoyable!!! Look no further .

Dr. LeFebvre and his staff are the best! I’ve been having my dental work done by them for several years. They are friendly, professional and any work I’ve had done by them is impeccable. I won’t go to anywhere else.

Dr. LeFebvre and his great staff has been doing a fantastic job of getting my teeth back in good health after I neglected them for too long, and he has worked with my limited budget to create a very cost effective treatment plan for me.

Best dental practice in town. It all starts at the top. Dr. Lefebvre has been my dentist for nearly 2 decades. His practice has moved a few times and I with him. He always has the most competent staff. From reception to Hygene. This team is the very best. I only trust my smile to him and his team

Rick I. from Encinitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mike, his entire staff, and facility are at the pinnacle of the profession! Mike is a very knowledgeable, and gentle dentist who can make anybody feel more like they’re going to a spa chaise than like going to the electric chair! He’s fulfills all my dental needs without breaking the bank. Great value for great work! Take one step into the lobby and you begin to expect a doting staff to lead you to a day of relaxation at the spa of the Del Mar Country Club. These large, and luxurious treatment areas don’t typify ordinary dental practices. Every piece of equipment is the most high tech which ensures an accurate, and perfect treatment. I think Steve Jobs designed the computerized everything. Believe me, I’ve had several different types of repairs! The best is to watch a movie while getting your teeth whitened. I especially like the paperless office and electronic reminders. Saving trees. Do it! Go to Dr. Mike!

This is the best dental practice I had ever visited. The front desk staff is great and the offices are really comfortable and open. I had some issues regarding two cracked teeth and Dr. Cordonnier and Dr. Lefevbre are both excellent. It required a few return trips and everything was taken care of very well, very quickly, with a lot of follow-up texts to make sure that everything was OK. Highly recommend.

If you have apprehensions about the dentist Dr. LeFebvre is great. He’s very personable and tells you what exactly need to be done and even kept me updated on how long much more time it would take. I needed to have a long procedure. I get some anxiety in the chair. I have to say for a dental experience this was relatively smooth. I was able to stop and have breaks, even go to the restroom and have a drink. It did take a few hrs but there was not a time when I had anxiety. He also gave me options and was really frank with what should be immediately taken care of and thinks to put on the ‘dental to-do list’. Great experience and love the staff. They are always so friendly and kind. I will say watching a movie with the goggles and earphones is definitely a perk, makes the time fly by.

The dentist is not anyone’s favorite place. If you have to go through it, as we all do, Dr. Lefebvre is the man to see. He is very honest, thorough and careful. I have spent more time than I wish in a dentist chair but I feel very comfortable trusting this group. I don’t feel that he pushes any unnecessary treatment on me yet he is open about suggesting preventative measures in order to avoid future problems. Highly recommend this office!

I’ve been a patient here for the past 5-6 years after having a number of disappointing (and occasionally traumatizing) experiences at other dentists. I couldn’t be happier with Dr. LeFebvre and his team of caring professionals and recommend them highly.

Brittany P. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. LeFebvre for 2 years now and I have had very good experiences. My previous dentists have always caused me pain in my cleanings and treatments, but all of the hygenists I’ve seen are great and I no longer dread the appointment like I have my entire life.

I came to Dr. Mike’s awesome office 3 years ago with all sorts of dental problems. Dr. Mike and his wonderful team of professionals gave me the confidence that my bridge, implants, crowns, bone grafting and extraction of root canals and old fillings, were being done the right way, using the best of technology. He and his assistants are highly skilled and knowledgeable. They all create a really pleasant atmosphere with excellent, gracious communication. I couldn’t be happier with my experience there. The hour long drive is totally worth it!

My experiences, and there have been many visits, have always been excellent. Pleasant, understanding and especially willing to handle any event that I consider pertinent. Dr.Mike is very patient and his staff does him proud. Thank you all.

Karen U. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had horrible dental experiences in my past.  My co-worker referred me to Dr. LeFebvre years ago and I have never been happier.  His staff is warm and professional.  They were able to sense my dental anxiety and made me feel comfortable from my first visit. My daughter’s now go to him and his staff is able to get them in at the same time.  I highly recommend Dr. LeFebvre and staff!!!

I went to the same dentist for 25 years then moved out to California. It took me a while to find a new dentist and I am sure happy I picked Dr. LeFebvre and his team. They made me feel as if I was a lifelong patient since day one! All of the staff is extremely personable and professional. Any procedure is explained in good detail before being performed and all costs are 100 percent transparent. Also, you get to watch movies during procedures, how can you beat that? Don’t make a mistake, make sure you call this team!

Elizabeth K. from Encinitas, CA (Source: Facebook)


Just switched to San Dieguito dental group and couldn’t have been happier.  I went in for a cleaning and left with out any pain or irritation. Caitlin, my hygienist was friendly and extremely through.  After getting a few tips on how to better care for my teeth, I left feeling very informed  on how to prevent future problems.  Dr. Lefebvre was also very friendly,knowledgable and was someone I felt I could trust.  The facility was very clean and welcoming.  Parking was very good and location was very convenient on El Camino.

I was overly impressed with Dr. Mike. My last dentist was found “wanting” after the absolutely thorough and comprehensive exam I was given. I have implicit trust in this dentist!!!!!!

Tony Schenk (Source: Google)


Dr. Lefebvre always has the latest technology and is top of his field. He used a laser technology for my filling that did not require any shots or numbing of any kind. Even better, no pain!! The appointment was quick and I was able to go back to work without any discomfort or disruption in my day! The office staff is outstanding, especially the office manager. She is always friendly, professional, and excellent at what she does. I would recommend this office to anyone!

Gabe J. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


My years of seeing Dr. Mike has produced a bond that’s trust worthy and most of all a friendship! He’s ALWAYS done outstanding work and anytime I wasn’t happy he was quick to fix anything that made me happy! Bottom line is i trust THE DOC and very grateful for our friendship and fairness concerning my dental procedures! Look forward to many years of my family’s dental needs taken care of by you! Thanks again, Gabe Jensen

Dr Lafevbre is a craftsman. He is both an outstanding technical dentist and dedicated to the highest standards. I’ve had ten previous dentists in my life, none compare to Dr Mike. I’m a long term patient, 15 years, and I wouldn’t have my teeth without him. My brother in Wisconsin has no teeth. The team focus is long term proactive care, getting ahead of potential problems before they start. If it sounds like I’m embellishing, it’s because I’m really a believer. Dr Mike is committed to cutting edge technology, continuous education, and respect for his patients and staff.

Cassie T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff here are always friendly, and they go out of their way to do follow ups and ensure you are happy. One thing I loved is that they make sure you understand your insurance portion, and everything with billing was always clear and handled well. The work done is high quality, I was lucky to have found this place.

Caitlin is the BEST Hygenist!! She continues to keep me accountable for my dental program and maintenance. My regular cleaning appointments keep my teeth and gums healthy and happy, Dr. Mike is awesome, friendly & a great Dentist. The entire staff make you feel like family. I recommend the office to everyone I speak with!

Dr. Mike and his team were terrific. I needed to have some old mercury fillings replaced and a crown put on and Dr. Mike and the assistants, especially Bailey, were very skilled and took good care of me. I highly recommend San Dieguitio Dental Group and Dr. Mike LeFebvre!

I highly recommend Dr. LeFebvre and his staff. They are all very friendly and knowledgeable. I’ve been going here for several years and never have I been disappointed. Thank you San Dieguito Dental for taking such great care of my teeth.

Do you love your Dentist? Dr. Mike LeFebvre is second to none! If you’ve never enjoyed going to the dentist it’s time to check out San Dieguito Dental Group. They have a gorgeous facility, it’s luxurious and their staff is excellent. I’ve never experienced a dentist who has taken the time to educate me on my dental health until now. I originally came to Dr. Mike just to have my teeth whitened but I was so impressed with I switched dentists; I trust him very much! I thought my teeth were in perfect condition, I had a dentist I went to on a regular basis but in reality my teeth were far from perfect. I had a root canal two years prior to my initial examination with Dr. Mike, his technology is leaps and bounds above the rest. He was able to show me deep down I had an infection where the root canal was done. He referred me to a specialist in Encinitas (who was just as amazing) and what he found horrified me. During my original root canal with my previous dentist, the tip of an instrument broke off and it was left inside me therefore they were not able to go down as deep as they needed to go to properly perform a root canal and I was left with a nasty infection! If it wasn’t for Dr. Mike and his amazing technology I would not be as healthy as I am today! Thank you very much, I am truly appreciative

I have been going here since moving to San Diego County in 2010 – My husband and I really don’t like going to the dentist, but they are the most cordial dental staff from admin to hygienist, and Dr. LeFebvre is really responsive to cues of discomfort. We recently moved to the bay area and for the last two visits we have driven the 7 hours to our visits. It is going to be really hard to replace such a great team.

Been a patient of Dr. Lefebvre for many years. It’s not just the professionalism and skill of Dr. Lefebvre and his staff but the atmosphere of genuine caring and friendliness that keep me coming back.

Love Dr LeFebvre and his whole team! We recently moved to Newport Beach and because of their professionalism, kindness, always positive and super clean atmosphere I’ll continue to be his patient and make the long commute! I just can’t recommend them highly enough!! Thanks for giving me the same great service every time I go!

Sarah K. from Cardiff, CA (Source: Yelp)


San Dieguito Dental group is a definite favorite of not just me but my whole family. Not only going for the standard teeth cleaning and check up once a year, I’ve had a shattered tooth removed as well as cavity work done. The staff there is so sweet and friendly and speaking from the terrified kid experience of having to get the shards of molar removed they were so reassuring and the entire procedure was painless. The whole entire family has gone in for a variety of reasons from basic to surgery and we have always loved the trip as much as one can love going to the dentist. The staff while friendly is in no way overly pushy and in your business about your private life which is most appreciated, it is nice to have a dentist that understands that I have poky things in my mouth and talking isn’t the easiest. To make a long story short, we are so glad to have this practice nearby and the whole family loves Dr. LeFebvre and his staff.
