WOW! After 4 decades of being afraid of going to the dentist, it is finally changing. Dr. Jen is an exceptional human being and it’s obvious in the little details of the impeccably clean office, the high end digital screen for x-ray viewing along with Amazon Prime, Netflix etc. while you’re in your session and then the actual dentistry product. I am BLOWN AWAY by the depth of compassion, care, straightforwardness and awesome dental care….even my dental cleaning was the best I ever had. If you have dental phobia, sensitive teeth or other issues that keep you away from the dentist, I promise you, your experience with dentistry is about to change. Wow. Thank you Dr. Jen and team for bringing the GOLD MEDAL to your practice.

Was referred to Dr. Jennifer Dean’s practice by Dr. Christopher Rhoades and wholeheartedly believe it’s the best practice in southern California. Professional staff and absolutely exceptional service. It’s a rarity to come across a dentist that is consistently compassionate and honest. I’ve had dental crown work and get routine00 cleaning/checkups for my son and I. Dr. Dean is easy to communicate with, is always there for you, will educate you about your dental health, and practices with an honest conservative approach. Treatments are thoroughly explained, options for care are clearly detailed and it’s just really comforting knowing you’re not going to be taken advantage of. My previous dentist were two aunts from both parental sides. They took care of me since I was a child and when you go see an aunt for dental work you think nothing of the service knowing they genuinely care for you. This place is helpful, honest and genuinely cares. It’s the only place I’d want my family to build a relationship and grow with. My 6 year old enjoys coming in for checkups. If your insurance is too convoluted, they will explain everything for you. They also offer other payment plans for those lacking insurance. Also, the office is beautiful with great amenities and very comfortable.

This is seriously the best dentist office I’ve ever been to. The service is next level and there are TVs on the ceiling above the chairs  Here is my last experience: I sit down, pop on Parks and Rec via netflix on the overhead TV, Dr. Jenn goes through the usual check up, then pauses the show, gets out and little camera wand, changes the channel, and actually shows me what my teeth look like! ON THE TV! Never before have I actually been able to see what the dentist sees! She showed me where the are areas of concern and also where my one cavity was. (i don’t brush enough).  It was such a wild experience and made me feel even more comfortable about the work that was being done.  Then the headphones went back on, she un-paused parks and Rec, and the cleaning began. Seriously, it was an incredible dentist experience.

Dr Jen is the one and only for me. sad we moved back to Uk won’t find a Dr like her here. She is fantastic and does everything she can actually she goes beyond expectations to make sure that you are comfortable relaxed and happy. Love and all the other professionals that works with her. 10 out 10 really.

Lory M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was recommended to Dr. Jen by a friend, and he was absolutely right to do so. She provided a very high level of care while still being attentive to my needs. I never felt pressured at any point and all of my options were thoroughly explained to me. This is a far cry from what I typically experience at the dentist, so I’m very grateful for that. If you need a dentist, I highly recommend.

We love Dr. Jen. She is great with my kids. My daughter had to have teeth pulled and she extremely gentle and patient. She always follows up with a phone call. We drive all the way from Santee but it is worth it. She takes my insurance and the staff is super helpful and friendly.

Jim H. from Rancho Santa Fe, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never had a bad experience with Dr. Dean. She takes exceptional care of me and spends a great deal of time going over every detail, answering all of my questions, and putting my mind at ease. I was told I would need a crown by another dentist, but Dr. Dean assured me that a filling would be the best route, particularly when it comes to my pocket book. I really appreciate her giving it to me straight and taking such care.

Greg M. from Rancho Santa Fe, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dean (aka Dr. Jen because she’s not so stuffy)  is by far the best dentist I’ve ever seen. The time and care she spends with you is really remarkable. She’s always super gentle with me, everything turns out great, everyone is friendly and geuinely cares, and I get to watch TV while doing it. What’s not to like?

Jackie Sullivan (Source: Google)


Dr. Jen is the best dentist I have ever been to. She is kind, thorough, caring and gentle. I can’t say enough good, positive things about her and her staff. I would travel hours to have her as my dentist (I don’t have to but I would!). Anyone would be lucky to have her as their dentist.

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


Dr. Jen and her staff are always friendly and deliver exceptional customer service as well as dental services. Her office is beautiful and impeccably clean. Dr. Jen is not only an extremely talented dentist, but also a kind person and very caring and dedicated to her patients. She makes the dental experience a relaxed and enjoyable one. In addition, her attention to detail is second to none. I myself am a plastic surgeon and she is the first dentist I’ve met who has the same level of attention to detail with her patients which I provide my patients. I could not be happier with her dental and customer services she’s provided me thus far and would highly recommend her to anyone for their general or cosmetic dentistry needs.

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


Let me start off by saying I am a dentist. So when I need dental care or my family does, this is where we go. The office is beautiful and so comfortable. They have everything imaginable to make the experience not as frightening and might I even say pleasant. I can come here a little early for my apt grab a cup of coffee and snack (don’t worry I brush and rinse right after). There is always plenty of parking. The front office staff (especially Brennan) are so nice and make me feel so welcome. Then you get to treatment and as my dad asked “can I just sleep in this chair?” Seriously they have huge tv screens, the best headsets, and the comfiest of chairs. We were even offered clear or tinted glasses to block the light. Who thinks of that?? So thoughtful. The office is so clean! These are the things that everyone sees. Now let me get into why I still put myself and my family in her care. We go because of Dr. Jen’s attention to detail and the quality of care. As a dentist, I can tell you this office uses the BEST materials and labs. They don’t cheap out just because patients may not know about materials. Dr. Jen is not the type to sell you a bunch of things you don’t need. She is very HONEST and does beautiful work. There is something so comforting about knowing you are not going to be taken advantage of. She explains things so well and never cuts corners. She is also very gentle! She is a perfectionist and that is the only type of person I want working on my family and myself. I should add that we don’t live close to the office. However, when you find such a trustworthy dentist it is definitely worth the 45 minute commute (without traffic).

Dr. Jen is the best dentist I’ve had. We moved to North County two years ago and in my search for a new dentist in the area, I noticed that she had great reviews online. After my first visit, I told my husband he had to visit her and now even our teenage sons have joined her practice as well. We all highly recommend her.

Cyn H. from Bellevue, WA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Dean is great.  The staff are lovely. I go in for regular cleanings.  Dr. Dean did quality work repairing a composite/ amalgam that had cracked after 20 years of wear.  Her fix looks even better than the original work. Thanks Dr. Dean!

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


I gotta write an update because I had an even better experience this time around. I sit down, pop on Parks and Rec via nerflix on the overhead TV, Dr. Jenn goes through the usual check up,  then pauses the show, gets out and little camera wand, changes the channel, and actually shows me what my teeth look like! ON THE TV! Never before have I actually been able to see what the dentist sees! She showed me where the are areas of concern and also where my one cavity was. (i don’t brush enough). It was such a wild experience and made me feel even more comfortable about the work that was being done.   Then the headphones went back on, she un-paused parks and Rec, and the cleaning began. Seriously, it was an incredible dentist experience.

Greatest Dentist ever. Dr Jen is a complete professional. The staff Steph and Mike are always friendly and courteous. Nobody looks forward to having dental procedures, however this was the only time I was at ease during a very thorough teeth cleaning. Reasonable rates as they take most insurance. Call ahead and plan as enjoyable a trip to the dentist can be

I was visiting the Rancho Santa Fe area when two of my crowns came off. The hotel I was staying at recommended Dr. Jen to me. April was able to fit me in that same day. Dr. Jen checked my posts, recemented both crowns and sent a detailed report back home to my regular dentist.  I love this dental practice! If I were a resident of this area or if I ever move here, Dr. Jen will be my dentist for sure!

Trevor K. from Aurora, IL (Source: Yelp)


Can’t say enough good things about this office. Dr. Jen is the best! Gorgeous facility, smart, welcoming team, state-of-the-art dentistry. If you’re looking for something better for your dental experiences and oral health, give these guys a call

Extremely clean and nice new dental office with all the latest and greatest equipment. I don’t currently have dental insurance, but they offer two visits per year for (a great deal), which includes X-rays. The doctor and staff were terrific, and very thorough. Easy to book first appointment online. Plenty of parking in a new shopping complex just a few miles east of I-5 and Via de la Valle in RSF.

Macy F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jen and her team are an amazing addition to the RSF and Del Mar communities. They’re gentle, compassionate, and understanding. I never felt pressured or rushed, the office is beautiful, and her workmanship is great. Highly recommend!

Mary H. from Woodbridge, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dean is really a gem. For being a dental office, I really have such a pleasant experience every time I come in (I actually LIKE coming in for my appointment every six months!). I never feel pressured or uncomfortable, and things are just simple, easy, and transparent as they should be.

Emily Bowman (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Jen goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with your smile! After cleanings, fillings and cosmetic work, I am very pleased with everything. Everyone at the office is friendly and welcoming and the office is new and state of the art (with massaging chairs)! Dr. Jen is always on schedule and gives you superior 1 on 1 attention. Thank you!

Elliana Araujo (Source: Google)


I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Jen and her whole team at RSF Dentistry. I walked in as a new patient, and was pleasantly surprised at every turn by how friendly, efficient, and informed everyone I worked with was. Rather than being breezed through some technical jargon and hurried on to a hygienist, Dr. Jen took the time to walk me through my x-rays, explain her concerns and observations, and then show me those same points via camera. Since it was my first appointment, she even did my cleaning herself. I have never felt so informed walking away from a routine exam/cleaning. I’ve never been so educated about my own teeth, despite a lifetime of orthodontics and strict care. The massage chairs, hot towels, happy/friendly staff, and general luxury of the office make the whole experience feel more like a spa day than the typically uncomfortable, sterile environment I have always associated with dentist visits. I will be returning with my business as long as I am able.

If I could give 10 stars, I would!! Dr. Jen is truly amazing, I met her when she was working in Mission Valley and I will never go to another dentist. I travel from Bonita to Rancho Santa Fe to see her. I had a problem with a tooth on a Sunday and she was so accommodating that she opened up her practice on a Sunday to fix the problem, and for that I am grateful. Keep up the amazing work and God bless your hands at work!! Recommended 100%

Samson Y. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jen is the best, now that I found her, I won’t go anywhere else. She doesn’t hound me over every little thing but she always makes sure my mouth is in good shape. She explains everything super thoroughly and she goes to great lengths to make sure I understand all of my options. I never feel pressured and she always assures me that it’s my decision. To be honest though, at this point, I trust her so much I would let her do anything. Her work is amazing. She showed me my fillings and I seriously couldn’t tell where it was- they  looked like a brand new teeth! I’ve seen my other fillings that were done before her and they don’t look anything like that. She’s awesome and I’ll be a patient for life!

Rafaella D. from Encinitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to this dentistry and loved it. Everyone that works there was so nice. You feel very comfortable and welcomed right as you walk in the door.  They do not pressure you for dental work and give you all the options  from least expensive and upward. You can choose. The office is so clean and pretty too.  Dr. Jen is excellent at what she does. My teeth looked amazing. I’m so happy I was referred here and highly recommend.

Alexis L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so grateful to have found the incredible dental team at RSF Cosmetic Dentistry! The staff could not be nicer and more caring, their facility makes for a truly enjoyable experience and their work is amazing! I highly recommend!

I first met Jennifer Dean in a pseudo emergency situation. I was out to dinner, and my veneer literally slid off. So, I was basically stuck with some hideous looking ( prior damage) prepped tooth and my veneer in a napkin. It was a holiday weekend…yikes! My husband and I called everyone, including, my then, dentist. Out of all the calls, only two dentists would help- Dr. Jen was one of them (we obviously chose her) and another dentist (Hillcrest area), we had never seen before, who also seemed very caring (can’t recall the name).  My dentist, unfortunately was away from the area. So, despite me not being a patient at the time, she was willing to come in, after hours and re-cement my veneer. That spoke volumes to me- to go out of your way for a non-patient is pretty darn cool. When we met with her at about 8:30pm, it was a huge relief that she was as friendly in person.  She took the time to tell us her background.  She clearly is a  skilled dentist. Most importantly, she checked the veneer, and carefully prepped my tooth and re-cemented the veneer.  She charged a very reasonable fee too for being after hours on a holiday weekend. We transferred to her practice and she is now our dentist of record. The area, where her new office is located is in Rancho Santa Fe which is a lovely area.  The office building is either new construction or highly renovated. Parking was super easy. The office itself is clean, clean, clean. Can’t say enough about cleanliness in a dental office for obvious reasons we do not need to go into here. The office, although very clean is not clinical feeling. You may think, by going there, you have arrived at a very nice spa. It’s tranquil. There are charging stations, snacks, and water in the waiting room. There is state of the art equipment throughout. Super cool chairs that have different options for comfort (think playing around at the Brookstone store on their cool chairs). There is a television on the ceiling (I kid you not), and headphones if you want to watch t.v. and tune out the whole dental procedure. Dr Jen is up to date with all the latest and greatest dental information. She accepts several insurance plans (check with the office). She also offers a very reasonable “in-house” type plan for those without insurance. It provides a number of free services and discounts on treatment.  The quality of the treatment is excellent. So far, I have not had much interaction with her front office other than (April was not there when I went for my cleaning)  Brennon, who works with Dr. Jen in the office (from time to time) and is  very helpful. He is efficient but very easy to talk with.

I’m a new patient of Dr. Jen. My initial visit included the usual dental exam, xray & cleaning. I found Dr. Jen to be friendly, knowledgeable & thorough! She was extremely thorough in doing my dental exam & dental cleaning which I very much appreciate. On a side note, I have had 40+yrs of experience w/various dental specialists due to a condition that I was dx when I was 20y.o. Because of my dx I have had various dental surgeries & have been under the care of many dental specialist. Due to my experiences, I can honestly say that I was impressed w/Dr. Jen’s friendliness, knowledge, thoroughness & listening skills!  I look forward to a long dentist/patient relationship w/Dr. Jen. I’m in good hands!

Dr. Jen and Stephanie were amazing! My entire experience was wonderful. The office is beautiful and they have massage dental chairs and Netflix to watch while you get your treatment. Dr. Jen is very thorough, which I very much appreciate and she takes the time to explain to you what’s needed and why it’s needed. I know how hard it is to find a good dentist and I’m really so glad I found them!

Chase S. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jen is the best dentist in San Diego hands down. I have been going to Dr. Jen for a few years now and despite no longer living in San Diego, I fly back for dental work. Office is super luxurious and modern. Super cool laid back and friendly environment in the office. Dr. Jen definitely takes the anxiety away that most experience at the dentist. Highly recommend!

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


So happy to find Dr. Jen. Her office is impeccable and very welcoming. Dr. Jen always communicates with you on what she is doing and makes you feel comfortable during your procedure. So glad I found her!

J. C. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) I was so impressed by Dr Dean, her team, and the beautiful new facility yesterday.  It was my first visit to her practice and I’m so glad to have such an excellent dentist so convenient to my home.  She was through but efficient, very warm, and the fees were all explained in advance, no surprises.   Her team also did an excellent job tracking down my dental insurance when I couldn’t find the paperwork.  Happy to support a (relatively) new dental practice in our area.  I’d recommend giving her a try!   PS- She has NETFLIX on the ceiling and headphones so you can zone out the noises while she works and a hot towel to wipe your face at the end of the visit. Really thoughtful!

Dr. Jen often answers the phone when I call, imagine that at your dentist’s office. How she made it all the way through dental school without losing her coolness I have no idea – just grateful she is who she is and hired the team she has. Stephanie will make your day with her warm smile and genuine happiness to see you at their door.  Every person I’ve met at that dentist office is an owner – no one says it’s not my job or someone else will have to help you with that. From the moment you walk in the door they all come together like a Kansas City Chiefs offense and make you feel like they all came in that day just for you. Hat’s off to them. I will never be excited about a dentist appointment, but with RSF I no longer have anxiety about going to them.  Russ

I will admit that I’ve had a lifelong aversion to the dentist, so naturally there had been a long period of time since getting my little pearlies professionally checked and cleaned. After numerous years of convincing and nagging and procrastinating, I finally gave in and faced my fears like an adult (actually, it was because I was getting married and something about photos and lifetime and what not). I decided it was finally time to see a dentist. I was recommended to see Dr Jen by my now sister in law and I can’t recommend her (and Brennon) enough. Besides feeling like I walked into a dentist office that feels like it belongs in Silicon Valley (massage chairs, ceiling mount TVs, headphones, HBO, Netflix, etc), the dentistry work was first rate. Dr. Jen was super thorough and patient with me during the whole process. After discussing my x-rays (conveniently projected on the ceiling mount TV) and deciding that I had no cavities (success), Dr Jen was able to show me a live camera feed of my mouth (also conveniently projected on the ceiling mount TV) to discuss any potential issues I had.  Quickly after that, I put on my headphones, put on some Netflix, opened my mouth, and let Dr Jen proceed with the cleaning that could only be described in the same manners as Michelangelo creating the Statue of David.To anybody looking for a dentist in the Rancho Santa Fe area, or San Diego area, heck, or even Los Angeles area (me), I can’t recommend Rancho Santa Fe Cosmetic & Family Dentistry enough. I’ve found my forever dentist.
