Dr. Gillespie is a good as any Dentist I have been to and better than most.  He and his staff maintain a professional environment at his practice that I truly appreciate.  Recently I called a few other local Dentists in hopes of finding a  lower fee for a crown on my cracked tooth  but found nothing lower.  I especially like the new equipment he has at his practice; to me that shows his commitment me as a patient and to his Dentistry practice.

Amazing doctor and wonderful experience! You can tell that he really cares about you as a person and about the work that he’s doing. I’ve never had a dentist take the time and care to explain to me what is going on, show me what is happening and engage me in a conversation about options. He doesn’t talk down you and wants what is best for the patient. He’s very meticulous in his work to ensure a lifetime guarantee. I hope I never have to find another dentist! In addition, the whole staff is very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this office!

I have been seeing Dr. G for over 30 years and I wouldn’t think of seeing anyone else. He has taken excellent care of my teeth and oral care and is very accommodating if I have a problem. The staff is great; they are friendly and efficient. This is definitely a five star establishment.  It’s a very nice and clean office with nitrous and a laser available. He is very gentle and explains all options and what is best for you, not just for the moment but also for the long term. He’s the BEST!

Over the years I’ve seen several different dentist and received what I considered good care.  Dr. Gillespie’s work has reset the bar, raised my expectations of good dental care; he is phenomenal.  He doesn’t just fix your dental problems, he educates you about your particular needs and how to properly care for yourself.  Equipped with the latest tools and technology, he meticulously completes his work while keeping you relaxed and comfortable.  His staff is equally professional, knowledgable and friendly.  For superb dental care, I highly recommend Dr. Gillespie and his staff.

Roger Gillespie and his team make every visit as pleasant as possible. Other than my disagreement with his selection of artwork in the waiting room, (LOL), this professional somehow bends the rules of physics by creating near perfection. The entire staff is always polite & professional. They always relate to me on a personal level and I end up with minimum waiting time. The treatments are consistently as quick as possible and done with great precision. In many years of visits, I’ve never had a bad experience, and thanks to “Dr G” and his staff, still have all my teeth.

Dr. Gillespie has seen my daughter 4 times now.  she suppers from severe anxiety and Dr. Gillespie has not only provided great dental care, but he patiently and calmly educated her and treated her with great compassion during a visit where she was in a panic attack.  I was so pleased that she was able to have the procedure completed and left without any anxiety.  Thank you Dr. Gillespie.

I have been a patient of Dr. Roger Gillespie for more than 12 years. Treatment has been excellent. Dr. Gillespie is a perfectionist and has repaired a couple of fractures with a crowns several years ago.  He also has given me valuable tips on prevention of grinding and designed a night guard to prevent the grinding.  My teeth are in excellent condition thanks to his care and recommendations.  The staff are very professional and work very well as a team. His office is state of the art.

Just went to see Dr. G for my annual cleaning and also had restorative work done on my front teeth and was so pleased I felt I had to update my review from a few years ago. First, like most everyone, dental cleaning is not my favorite event, but the hygienists at Dr. G’s office are friendly, efficient and do a fabulous job. Next, during my checkup Dr. G noticed I had a few chips in my front teeth that were noticeable.  He was able to schedule me the same week and not only replace my old fillings but also did some cosmetic work that I really needed.  Now I’m not constantly touching my front teeth and wishing they looked better, now they look great!  and btw- this was a nearly painless experience. End of year and just had my annual cleaning and some cosmetic work done.  Dr. G is very particular and detailed, which I LOVE in my dentist.  I’ve been going to his office for many years and have recommended co-workers and friends, everyone is a fan!  Dr. G has exceptional skills and has state of the art equipment.  If you are looking for a great dentist with a professional staff that will go the extra mile to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking fabulous this is the dentist for you!

Dr. Gillespie’s ofice is amazing! After not having been to the dentist for over 10 years, I was both incredibly nervous and not sure what to expect as far as the dental work I’d need. Dr. Gillespie has some of the most advanced technology available, including drill-less fillings, an oral camera, and low radiation digital x-rays. And, Dr. Gillespie’s aim is to get your mouth healthy, NOT get all the money he can out of you! Accompanied by his kind and knowledgeable staff, you can’t beat this dental experience!

Dr. Roger Gillespie has been our family dentist for 7-8 yrs now and we are blessed to have found him.  When I first met him, I thought he was a little serious.  As I got to know him, I find him to be very easy to talk to, funny and even silly especially around my kids.  My kids LOVE going to Dr. G.  I have been to a few dentist and he is definitely a perfectionist.  He is always focused on making sure everything is perfect. I agree that he can be impatient sometimes with his staff, but I’ve never seen him rude.   I took my mom to him a few years ago with the intention of getting 4 veneers because she has a chipped tooth with an old composite filling.  Instead, he advised her to just redo her old filling to a lighter color to match her other teeth.  He told her her front teeth looked really good and are in great condition so she should keep it as long as possible.  He said she could always do it later if the filling came off again. My mom was amazed with how honest he was.  Also, he made every effort to make her comfortable.  As of now, her filling is still intact.  Whenever anyone needs great, honest dental work done with peace of mind, I completely recommend Dr. G.  Two thumbs up from me and my family!

Three generations of my family have been going to Dr. Gillespie for at least 25 years. Dr. Gillespie is a perfectionist and also an artist. Dr. Gillespie has provided my family with crowns, fillings, root canals, implants, bonding, veneers and cleanings. Every procedure is performed with the utmost precision in an absolute sterile but extremely comfortable and private treatment room. Dr. Gillespie’s staff are so kind and professional. I constantly get complements on my smile and Dr. Gillespie is the reason. Thank you SO much Dr. G!

I wanted to share my experience at Dr. Gillespie’s office. The doctor was extremely professional, knowledgeable and polite. He uses state of the art equipment and latest technology to deliver excellent care to his patients.  The office staff were very pleasant, and made me feel welcome. Together, they made me feel confident, that I was getting the best treatment.  All my questions were addressed. The most important part of course, it did not hurt to fix the three fillings, and my teeth were sparkling after a cleaning. I would strongly recommend Dr. Gillespie to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Dr. Gillespie has been my General Dentist for about 4 years now. I am not a person who usually writes reviews on Yelp. However, I believe that superior customer (patient)  service deserves to be reviewed. Today, I went to Dr. Gillespie’s office for an anterior (front) bonding (filling) on my tooth. Dr. Gillespie took a great deal of time to make this filling look very natural. He could have tried to save time and offer another less conservative treatment option. This would have been far more profitable for him, and much more expensive for me . He didn’t even try to offer this to me. I had told him I only wanted a bonding. A dentist like this is very difficult to find. Most people without a dental background do not have the knowledge to make a conservative decision.  Here in this office all treatments are explained to you and there is no high pressure treatment plans ! In closing, I wanted to tell you on another occasion I was overcharged for a restoration by the front office manager. Dr. Gillespie called me personally that evening, at my home to explain her error and refund the balance to my account. Yes, this is an office worth looking into if you are thinking about changing your general dentist..

I have put my trust in Dr.Gillespie and have never been disappointed. I find him to be very professional toward me and his staff. He also is very personable and makes me laugh. He always tries to inflict the least amount of pain possible. Very important!. I would highly recommend him.

I have been seeing Dr. Gillespie for a very long time and really appreciate his office because everyone there truly cares. Before I went to Dr. Gillespie, I felt like I was being rushed through for the very minimum of care, but seeing him and the dental hygienists who work there, I feel as if I am receiving the very best of care and advice about how to take care of my teeth. I really appreciate them and recommend them to others.

I have been using Dr.Gillespie for nine years now and he is great. I’m writing this review now because I broke my three front teeth and was worried about the procedure required to fix them… they were messed up. Gillespie got me in right away (I called Sunday night, he fixed me up Monday morning)! HE FIXED MY TEETH IN AN HOUR WITHOUT INJECTING OR USING ANY NUMBING AGENT OF ANY TYPE AND I FEEL GREAT! Any other doctor would have used numbing agent but he used his expertise to perform the repair without it and didn’t inducing any pain in the process.
He has done lots of work on my teeth in the past and he makes his work last. Great dentist.

Dr. G has been my dentist as long as I can remember.  The staff is friendly and professional.  The Dr is a perfectionist and is a believer in painless dentistry.  He is great with children, kids, teens and adults.   Due to my activities, amounts I drive, my career life choice I am a teeth grinder and he has repaired the damage.  He is also the primary dentist for my immediate family where my family will travel as far away as the IE and Riverside Counties to make appointments.   He does NOT use metal fillings, he utilzes resin fillings, and stays current on the latest dental practices.  Expectations have always been exceeded.  I will continue to use him as my primary dentist throughout his career.   His business is located inside of the plaza on the second floor. I have not ever had a bad experience here.

I have been going to Dr. Gillespie since I first moved to the South Bay about 8 years ago.  He was highly recommended by a co-worker. The quality that stands out most about Dr. Gillespie is his attention to detail.  His dental office is the only one I’ve been to that regularly checks the depth of the gum pockets around every tooth.  He will also evaluate the quality of (and in some cases, fix) your prior dental work.  He always discusses both the pros and cons of any procedure with you before you decide on doing it–for example, I have an impacted wisdom tooth that every other dentist has recommended removing, but Dr. Gillespie advises me that it would not be worth the risk in potential nerve damage.  His staff is very friendly and professional.  Suzie, the receptionist, is good about calling to remind you about appointments a few days in advance.  Usually Kris does my teeth cleaning, and she is very nice and very thorough.   Dr. Gillespie is also a UCLA alum for any of you fellow Bruins out there.

I have been seeing Dr. Gillespie for more than ten years, and have recommended his office to many coworkers. Everyone always comes back with rave reviews.  Here’s why I like his office: 1. Clean 2. Meticulous work 3. Great dental hygienist (Update 5/26/18- Prior Hygienist moved- We now see Veronica- she does an awesome job at cleaning teeth and advising so that you get the most out of the visit, plus, very important to me, she is very gentle!!) 4. No pain. 5. Everyone actually cares- that makes a huge difference.   They always call to confirm the appointment ‘live’.  I know the names of the people who work in the office and they recognize me and my husband when we come in. Before I went to Dr. Gillespie, I felt like my dentist office treated the patients like cattle, and the condition of my teeth reflected it.  Years later, my teeth and gums are actually in better shape from the care that I receive. I highly recommend Dr. Gillespie and his team.

I couldn’t have found a better dentist. Dr. Gillespie had the skill and knowledge to repair all my problems in my mouth. He went above and beyond what any dentist has ever done for me. I’m very lucky to have found Dr. Gillespie.

I have been coming to Dr. G. for almost 25 years. He successfully convinced my then-apprehensive [ex-]husband to get better dental care with him. We brought our son as a toddler; now as an adult, he comes on his own. My mother also comes… it’s quite the family [dental care] affair! His staff is always amazing, and works with our dental plans.
