Wonderful experience. Alexis is a true professional. So happy for her new arrival, but selfishly I’m sad that I’ll have a substitute hygienist in August … but this is great news for Alexis and her husband!! The front office staff were great today with a quick and easy check-in, receipt of my new insurance, and recognizing that I needed a bandaid for a small cut due to the dry weather; very caring. Thanks again to everyone at Packard Dental … a place I’ve been visiting for nearly 20 years.

Yesterday was my first visit and from the moment I walked through the door until I left, I was treated with such care and genuineness. All of the staff I interacted with seemed to love their job and coming to work each day. It radiates through their customer service.

Dr. Jared is the best. Even on a Saturday when he knew I would never call unless I really was in pain. He came in after his kids soccer games, in shorts and flip flops. Was done in an hour with a root canal and the biggest plus, out of pain!! His assistant came in on her daughter’s birthday weekend. More than thankful to you both. Forever your patient.

The entire staff at Packard Dental are very caring and friendly! Doctor Jared is truly an awesome professional dentist! He turned my visit from me being a chicken into a happy experience-ha,ha, yes- I’m 63 and was afraid to go to the dentist- until my first visit to Packard Dental. Now I can’t wait to go because it’s so much fun! I can watch TV, listen to music, or be entertained by Dr. Jared and his staff who are happy, singing and being silly-that cuts down on my stress a lot! Everyone here are truly humanitarians- always putting the patient’s comfort first! That makes Packard Dental my first choice!

Pretty close, if not the best dental experience I’ve ever had. Went in for a crown, they have a machine that makes the crown right there so no two appointment process, chair was sooo comfortable I about fell asleep, cannot really express how great an experience I had. One hour, forty five minutes and I was good2go. Thank you Dr. Matt, Oliver and all the staff there, you guys and ladies rock

The staff at Packard Dental are simply amazing!!! Dr. Matt was extremely thorough in his exam. Set a plan of treatment and off we go! Thank you Melanie for the best care ever!! Highly recommend this dental office!! Even for those that have a tendency to fear the dentist, this office takes the anxiety away! Great experience!!

Aaron H. from San Marcos, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dentist I’ve been too. Despite not having an appointment they squeezed me in due to the pain of a broken molar. The professionalism was great all of the staff and customer care blew me away, they always made sure I wasn’t in pain and communicated everything very clearly to me, I will be making this my primary dentist.

Kendra M. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my teeth cleaned today by Nicole, and they feel amazing! She pointed out areas that had some inflammation and gave me tips on what I could do to improve. She also used the laser on my gums and finished the appointment with fluoride. Nicole is easy to talk to, making the appointment fly by. The TVs in the ceiling are such a perk! Everyone in the office is friendly and seems like they enjoy being there – what a warm environment! I love Packard Dental and would recommend this office to anyone who wants an amazing dental experience!

I have been going to Packard Dental for years and years now and I can’t say enough good things about the staff. Everyone is so friendly! They get to know you as a person, not just another set of teeth. (Mindy is the best!) Dr. Jared got me set up with invisalign and I get compliments all the time on my smile. This team has never let me down!

Tasha O. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Packard Dental is by far the best dental office in all of North County. Not only is the office beautiful and cleanly but the staff is incredibly welcoming, highly educated, and caring. All the Packard team members make you feel like family, they set themselves apart from other offices because they are empathetic and technologically advanced. Special remarks for my hygienist Kendra, she is wonderful! She is thorough while also being gentle. She is incredibly knowledge and provides the best possible care to get patients. Thank you Packard Dental for making my dental experience memorable.

Geri Nelson Bennett (Source: Facebook)


Kendra is the best – she is so gentle and really cares about her patients. I love Drs. Mark, Matt and Jared – they have taken the fear out of going to the dentist for me while providing outstanding customer service and patient care!

Hi, I’m from Canada and am visiting the area. I lost a filling and needed to get it looked at. The woman who answered the phone was very professional and very nice and was able to get me in for an appointment with Dr. Mark the same day I called. Everyone in the office is extremely nice and professional. The dental assistant was very kind and professional. Dr. Mark was very pleasant and explained what was going on very well. He didn’t rush in his explanations and made sure I knew what was needed. As I am from Canada and have no insurance, I was taken to speak to Rosie who explained all the costs and was ready to make me an appointment the next business day. She was also very nice and professional. I explained that we needed to have a little extra time to call home to our insurance company and check things out and she couldn’t have been nicer. She said to give her a call after we had a chance to do that and she’d work something out. All in all it was a very positive experience and I’m very happy I chose this dental group to vist.

I have been seeing Dr. Matt for years now. Love the entire staff. Their new location is very nice. Televisions on the ceiling so I can watch something while my teeth are being cleaned. I have nothing but good things to say about Packard Dental.

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


It’s always a pleasure coming to Packard Dental, I walked in for my 8am appointment and was taken in within 10 seconds of sitting down! Tiffany is just so friendly and personable and Dr. Matt was terrific too. Xrays were easy and fast. All in all, great visit! And I got a onesie for my 1yr old granddaughter which says ‘Future Packard Dental Patient’, so cute!

Anthony K. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


Packard Dental was highly recommended to me by a fellow coworker and I have say they have meet and exceeded all expectations. All of the staff is incredible, professional and very caring. Dr. Jared always takes the time to thoroughly answer my questions and does a great job with his dental work. I have also been lucky enough to have Jessica S. as my RDA. Some might say she is the best RDA west of the Mississippi! In all seriousness, she is very caring and does a wonderful job. If you are looking or are in need of finding a new dentist, this is the place to go!

It is with pleasure that I write about my experience at Packard Dental. I still remember the first time I met Dr. Jared, who is not only a dentist but also an orthodontist. He was super friendly (still is) as well as compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable. He gave me so much hope for a healthier and better smile. I couldn’t help but cry happy tears. He also went out of his way to help me by coming in on his day off and I have no doubt he would do it again for his patients. It’s something I will always be thankful for. I’ve struggled with my smile and oral care for years. At times too afraid and embarrassed to go see a dentist but now I look forward to seeing Dr. Jared and his amazing group of FAMILY! That’s right! Not staff, not coworkers, not colleagues… but FAMILY! And they sure know how to make you feel a part of their family as well! Everyone there is wonderful! From Chelsie at the front desk greeting you with the sweetest smile to Karen and MaryElizabeth always stopping what they’re doing to simply say hi, how are you, what’s new, to Karla (the best RDA everrr) who’s always so caring and easy to talk to, and let’s not forget Mindy and Kendra who I’ve seen for my cleanings. They are both gentle and you never feel rushed with them plus they give you really cool goody bags after! Who doesn’t love goody bags?! � You can definitely feel the love and care from each and everyone of them. I can not praise them enough! Words can not describe how happy I am with the results of Dr. Jared’s wonderful work thus far. He has given me much more than a beautiful smile. He’s given me self confidence! I feel like I am leading a new life! And enjoy smiling all the time now! And taking selfies! Lots of them! Haha! I feel extremely blessed to have found such a kind and competent dentist as well as orthodontist! My only regret is not finding him sooner.

My wife and I have been going to Packard Dental for several years and I must say it is by far the best dental experience you will ever have. From the minute you enter the building, you are immediately greeted by their friendly, professional office receptionist. The procedure rooms are spotless clean, the medical equipment is state of the art and the Dentists, dental hygienist and entire staff are excellent at what they do. My wife and I have been in health care for many years and want to acknowledge the exceptional treatment we receive from the health care professionals at Packard Dental

Dr. Jarrod and Dr. Matt are very friendly, encouraging, and know how to make their patients feel like family. My daughter (9) who use to be scared of the dentist is no longer scared. Matt was so gentle in his approach with her and even told her funny jokes to lighten the mood. She was telling all of her friends about him the next day! Dr. Jarrod did 3 fillings on me and let me tell you, I was scared but the moment he walked in I felt so much better. His calm approach filled the room and really lightened my heavy heart and mind. We walked me through the entire procedure and made sure I was 100% comfortable the entire time. What a relief and refreshing approach and dentistry. They actually listen, care, and take the time to explain! WELL DONE!!!

Barbara S. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience at Packard Dental has surpassed my expectations. Haley performed laser surgery and because of her knowledge, caring, careful explanations, and expertise, the experience I was dreading was actually pleasant. We even shared a laugh together during the procedure. The entire staff has been caring and professional. I am delighted and grateful for the dental care I continue to experience.

Our family of six have been patients with Packard Dental, and had received excellent service and treatment up until we had asked the front desk receptionist (Lisi), if we could schedule our two children to take their parents scheduled ‘routine cleaning’ visits. My two children had priority over our routine cleaning due to their sore gums, and other dental work that needed to be taken care of. My daughter had waited for over 27 days with swollen gums that were over growing her molars (Pericoronitis), and were told by Dr. Mark Packard that he could perform the procedure. My wife and I simply wanted our children to be seen before us, as they were in pain, and we could forego our routine cleaning appointment. Lisi stated “I think another Dentist would be more appropriate for you”. We were never given an explanation, or reason as to why Packard Dental turned us away when we were more concerned for our children’s teeth, and my daughter had been waiting for over 27 days in pain due to her Pericoronitis with infection that was beginning to set in around her lower molars. Lisi was very abrupt, rude, and inconsiderate towards my family when she stated that Packard Dental gave her the authority to make the decision to turn us away. We have never been treated so rudely by a receptionist (Lisi) who has abused her given authority to make decisions that affect the health of children. Our insurance has covered all of our visits and we have never been in dept nor have ever given this practice any problems to warrant such inconsiderate behavior from a receptionist.

Thanks to them fitting me in to replace a crown that came off, I’m doing great! I’m from Oregon, studying here at GIA, so I didn’t know what to do. The team was amazing and I’m so grateful.

Packard Drntal and Dr Jared totally got me over my dental anxiety! i will miss the whole staff so much!!!! my daughter posted this on her snapchat so I wanted to share! Thank you Packard Dental team for everything you have done for us! We will miss you all so much!!!!

John B. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am very impressed with the people, professionalism, and modern equipment. Nancy introduced herself and gave a tour of the office, then took X-rays. Dr. Matt performed a thorough examination and provided recommendations for future maintenance based on my goals. Mindy wrapped it all up by thoroughly cleaning my extremely crusty teeth, and made them presentable to the world. Thanks Mindy, I can smile enthusiastically now. And finally, Deb went through my paperwork filling me in on procedures and their costs based on my insurance coverage. Thanks to Packard Dental I left with a new smile. I look forward to seeing you in 6 months. or sooner for that teeth whitening.

I usually don’t write reviews but the entire staff was very professional from the moment I walked through the door til my appointment was over. The equipment was high speed state of the art and I felt like very comfortable while inside….Packard Dental is the Best hands down !!!

Kevin W. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Packard Dental is great! Great atmosphere and staff. Kendra is my hygienist and she always does a great job! They even have TVs in the ceiling, so you can kick back and relax and catch up on a show while you’re there. I would definitely recommend Packard Dental to friends and family.

Treloar Hocking (Source: Facebook)


If you are looking for a dental group that makes you feel like a member of the family you’ve found it! Every single visit feels like hanging out with friends. The first time I met Doctor Matt he asked me what was important to ME and has continued to support my goals and timing to achieve a bright beautiful healthy smile. I love their style!

Amanda S. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Packard Dental has been my dentist for a couple years now, and I am super happy with them. The office is nice and clean and all of the staff are super nice and welcoming. Mindy usually takes care of me for cleanings, and she always makes me feel comfortable. The dentists also makes me feel comfortable and well taken care of.
Thank you!

Packard Dental is a wonderful office! From the receptionist, Chelsea, to Kendra, awesome hygienist, and to Dr Matt, exceptional dentist- my visit was very professional and I felt well cared for. Thank you Packard Dental!

Krisztina Benyo (Source: Facebook)


Packard Dental is the only place I go, for the last 21 years, since I lived in the United States. Dr Mark, Dr Jared and Dr Matt are the best. The whole staff is wonderful, super friendly, and always very helpful. My three daughters loves Dr Jared, who also does orthodontic treatment for one of the girls. They treat us and love us like family, what better can you ask for!

Elaine A. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have tried many dentists in the area and I have found Packard Dental to be the most caring and knowledgeable dentists of all! This practice also has the best staff of anyone. They treat you as family and are also experts at their jobs! Thank you, to all of you at Packard Dental for the excellent work!

Kevin and I have had great dental service at Packard Dental. I was grateful when Doctor Jared was able to save most of my broken molar by doing an onlay instead of a full crown – which I thought I was going to need. A year later, it still feels and works just like my original unbroken tooth. We feel like we’re getting the most up-to-date care at Packard Dental and certainly appreciate having a trusted dentist.

Kristen Kostich Mazzola (Source: Facebook)


First time patient, sitting in the chair right now. I’m a super nervous patient and about to walk out of the dentist’s office *gasp* happy and relaxed! No small feat when my first visit was to fix a cracked tooth!

Edward R. Edward R. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Google)


Thanks to Mindy, I have received the best dental care every time for teeth cleaning. At my previous visit I was concerned that my teeth were getting brownish. Mindy suggested that I use a different mouth wash. I did. Great! My teeth are no longer brownish or yellow. Mindy is very patient and always very thorough in cleaning my teeth. Mindy, you are the best.  ED

Exceptional staff! Highly recommend this team! Dr. Matt has been great! Carefully explains everything and helps you have informed choices in quality care. I’m so glad I made the decision to go to Packard Dental!

Jim Sonny S. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today I had some dental work done by Dr. Jarod with the help from Amanda and although I was apprehensive about the procedure it went really well. Two teeth were prep for a bridge and one tooth was extracted and all was done without any issue. I am a coward when it comes to the numbing but Dr. Jarod has it down pat, very little to no pain. My temporary made by Amanda looked as good as a permanent. My wife and I travel 800 miles to have Packard Dental take care of our Dental issues. Jim


We have multiple doctors, so there is always someone here or on call to help you. Ron, Von, and Floyd Packard, opened Packard Dental in 1963. The office was in the heart of the quaint Carlsbad village. The three brothers had moved to Carlsbad after serving in the Navy to start their dental practice and raise their families. Eventually, Forrest and Floyd Jr (sons of Floyd) and Mark (son of Von) continued the legacy of the family dental office as second generation owners. Just like their fathers, they raised their families in Carlsbad. Mark's two sons, Matt and Jared, followed the family profession of dentistry and are the current third generation owners of the family practice. The office has relocated half a mile from its original location to an ocean view suite at 1281 Carlsbad Village Drive. While the office stays on the forefront of modern dental technology and advance treatment, the Packard Dental Doctors and team focus on making sure every patient experiences the exceptional service and excellent clinical care that Packard Dental was founded on in 1963. Dr. Matt Packard is a 3rd generation dentist at Packard Dental. While away from the office, Dr. Matt enjoys playing at the park or beach with his family, practicing the piano, and aspiring to be a better than average golfer. He is the father of four spunky children that can sometimes be spotted at the office sneaking lollipops from the front desk.
