Sami B. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I usually don’t go to dentists in Encinitas as it’s a bit of a drive for me, but I went into San Diego Premier Dental group to fix a chipped tooth & I was incredibly pleased with the whole experience. The atmosphere was warm, the staff was friendly, & Dr. Dena is the real deal when it comes to Encinitas dentists. First of all, Dr. Dena was punctual. All other experiences I’ve had with dentists start with a 15 minute wait when I show up on time. Not this time. The minute I walked in I was greeted by the friendly staff & was brought to the room where I was greeted by Dr. Dena who made me feel at home. Dr. Dena thoroughly examined my chipped tooth & fixed it like it never even happened. One this I can say about Dr. Dena is he really cares about his patients and tries to deliver the best possible experience you can have at a dentist office. I will definitely make the drive to San Diego Premier Dental Group for all my dental needs in the future from cleanings to teeth whitenings & more. Even if you live far from his office, it’s worth the drive to experience the best dentist in Encinitas.

Awesome dentist! Dr. Dena is always so kind, patient, and caring about his patients and makes the often dreaded “going to the dentist” experience very quick, easy, and painless. Definitely the most efficient dentist I’ve ever been to. I never have to wait for my appointment when I get there. 11/10 would highly recommend!!

Daniel M. from Escondido, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dena is a Master Dentist!!! He does everything. Fixed my chipped tooth and did cleaning under a hour!!! Very gental, clean and fast. The building is neat and has a relaxing atmosphere. Tons of magazines to read while you wait . I highly recommending him to anyone looking for a Dentist.

Nasrin B. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dena has been my family dentist for over 8 years. He is very knowledgeable, very patient and caring, and he takes the time to explain whatever needs to be done to our teeth.  With the latest technology equipment in his office, we can see our teeth x-rays on the screen right in front of us! He is the best dentist we have ever been to, because not only he has wonderfully fixed all our dental fillings, crowns, and cosmetic and preventive care we have needed,  he never did any dental work that we did not need to have done.  
Although my kids are grown up and moved away, they will go way out of their way and keep coming back to Dr. Dena for their dental care. We just really like Dr. Dena and are very happy that we are his patients.

My wife and I have had many dentists through the years but we have been with Dr. Dena for nearly the past 20. He is the best dentist we have had. Dr. Dena and staff are skilled, knowledgeable and always pleasant. They remove the dread from going to the dentist.

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


We have been patients of Dr. Dena for over 10 years! My 2 teenagers actually look forward to their 6 month check ups. He is very professional and yet very easy going! I feel at ease in his care!  From as early as 8 years old , I have been in and out of dentist offices till I found my jewel, Dr Dena!! He has done well over 10 crowns for me including a bridge and every time I’m going to an appointment, I am excited because I know it will be done “RIGHT”!! As a matter of fact, I  was just there yesterday for him to work on my bridge and I kid you not I fell asleep! It felt like I was at a spa! His assistant Brenda is very polite and attentive as well. I like to extend my gratitude to Dr. dena, Rita, Paula and Brenda for caring so much for their patients and their level of professionalism to their patients yet so friendly and caring! Thank you!!! Mojan Sande Ps, I assure all the yelpers when I say this about Dr. Dena and this is coming from a lady who has been in and out of the dentist offices for the past 30 years. He is the nicest, kindest, caring individual and at the same time professional, honest and very gifted!!! I found Dr. Dena about 10 years ago and my family has been coming to him since! Non sense about these characters here writing outrageous lies about him. My son is almost 17 and my daughter is 14 and he has been their dentist for the past 10 years. They have no cavities!!! Why because we go to him on a regular check ups and they are better for it. What kind of a person doesn’t see a dentist regularly and then blames the dentist for having cavities? Sorry but I have to disagree! On the other hand I’m the one with horrible teeth and I have many crowns that he had done for me and redone from a bad dental job from previous dentists. I respect my dentist, Dr. Dena for his hard work, ethic and talent! He has made my teeth beautiful! I can open my big mouth and laugh as big as I want because I can!! Sorry for the longest review!!!

Had a great experience for my deep cleaning. I’ve been to other offices recommending the same treatment and I’ve been charged an arm and a leg. I was referred by one of my doctor colleagues and we both don’t mind the drive from North Park to Escondido because Dr. Dena’s office is that great. There are other patient perks here too that you will soon discover at their office. As long as I live in San Diego, I will probably be a loyal patient to this office.

A true gem of a dentist. His staff is amazingly friendly and competent. They remember who you are and why you are there. There is no up selling. He goes about his business. He is friendly, competent and timely. I couldn’t ask for more from my dentist.

Amie Allman (Source: Google)


I was a patient of Dr. Dena for almost 10 years and then I moved to Escondido. I tried other dentists in my area but just couldn’t find anyone with the same quality and care. Now I drive the extra miles to his practice because he is truly worth it! Won’t go anywhere else again.

Eric V. from University City, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great and friendly staff. He does some good work. They usually have new patient deals, which was the reason I started to come. If you or a family member or friend is looking for a wonderful dentist. This is the place! Especially if you don’t like going to the dentist, it’s a comfortable environment.

Colleen D. from La Jolla, CA (Source: Yelp)


Before we found Dr. Dena, we were spending literally two to three times more for the same services in La Jolla, CA from three different dentists. Here is the best part… Dr. Dena is a MUCH better dentist than the ones we went to in La Jolla.  He has the newest technology and his staff is always pleasant and very helpful.  So we drive 20 min. each way to see a better dentist and save money.  HIGHLY recommend Dr. Dena.

I have been coming to Dr. Dena my whole life he’s a very kind and gentle dentist. From the clouds on his ceiling to the tranquil little water fountains in the lobby, the vibe in his facility is very calming and relaxing. Also extremely clean. I highly recommend him to anyone! He will definitely leave you with a beautiful smile.

Best dentist in town hands down !! Dr. Dena is compassionate, caring , kind, and gentle towards his patients! He truly does care and takes his time ! His office is always clean and smells fresh and you are always welcomed by a friendly staff at desk ( Paula and Rita )! His dental assistant is wonderful as well ! They always greet you with a smile and take care of your needs ! I highly recommend this practice. Thank you for always providing me with a positive experience!

Dr Dena is extremely caring and knowledgeable! Our family has been going to him for years, my kids love to go see Dr Dena, he is very gentle, spends a lot of time to explain the procedure and always does a fantastic job!! We are so grateful to have him as our dentist and highly recommend him!!!

Julia N. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful dentist office! I went in for a cleaning today (which can be a little nerve-wracking for an expectant mama), and was treated kindly and gently by the very friendly hygienist. After the cleaning, the dentist, Dr. Dena, swung by to take a quick look at my teeth and even answered a questions, I was incredibly impressed by the thorough cleaning, but more so by their nurturing approach. I definitely did not feel like a number. I am so happy to have found “the one” after leaving my dentist of 8 years when I moved from NY.

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


I usually don’t leave comments on websites, but this time I kind of feel obligated.   This was my first time to see Dr. Dena.  The service I received was outstanding, the ambiance & people were nice and friendly, and Dr. Dena has this calm and relaxing aura about him that made the whole process go easy & smooth for me.  I have found my dentist, and will highly recommend him to others.       Thanks, Sam

Dr. Dena is great! I have been having my teeth cleaned at his office for more than 15 years. Prior to using Dr. Dena I was terrified of going to the dentist. My cleanings are quick and efficient with no pain. He has even replaced some old metal fillings with new white fillings. I would highly recommend using Dr. Dena.

Dr. Dennis office is the most efficient, effective, dedicated staff that make your Dentistry experience almost a pleasure. They care about their patients and I have never had my actual dentist do the cleaning and so many of the procedures. Dr Dena is the best dentist I’ve ever had.

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


Came here to get my teeth cleaned and got a very professional & cordial service. Very high tech dentistry, I could see pictures of my teeth live as well as x-rays. The price was less than I thought it would be as well. The doctor was friendly and very knowledgeable.

L. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dena and his staff are so professional and efficient! So much so that I’ve never had to wait after my appointment time. The level of care we have received from Dr. Dena over the years has been wonderful! We recommend Dr.Dena to all of our family & friends

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


I’ve had many experiences with different dentists throughout the years and I’m so happy to have found Dr. Dena… He is both highly skilled in his trade and also very trustworthy and honest. It’s always a breeze going in and out and he gives it to you straight.. I highly recommend his services!

Arte K. from San Marcos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going here for about 4 years now.  Its about half of what I was paying elsewhere so the prices are good. I have had 4 cavities fixed here and everything turned out good. I refer people here all the time because I know Dr Dena will take care of them.   I hadn’t been to the dentist in 5 years because of how expensive and time consuming it was.  Now I go every six months because its affordable and I know its worth it.

I have nothing but praise for San Diego Premier Dental Group and Dr. Dena. The whole staff is very professional and extremely helpful and kind. Dr. Dena is highly trained and competent with excellent bedside manner. All of my questions regarding proposed treatment were answered fully in terms I could understand. Dr. Dena uses the latest and greatest technology which made my experience even better. The office consistently offers new patients incentives and discounts to come in and try them out. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Dena and San Diego Premier Dental Group for all of you and your family’s dental needs!

Sameera Tooraji (Source: Google)


Dr. Dena’s is the best! Everyone is so friendly, quick, and efficient. The receptionist always has your paperwork waiting for you. I have been going here for 5 years and have never had to wait more than 5 minutes and Dr. Dena always comes right in and explains everything thoroughly and shows you pictures of the pictures taken. Love them!!

Patti A. from Solana Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just started going to Dr. Dena. I’ve had two appointments. I think he is attentive and very gentle. I am a happy client. He also kindly helped me with a chipped tooth that was cosmetically bothering me and didn’t even hesitate to do so. His office was very clean and his staff are courteous.

Sarah A. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot recommend Dr. Dena enough.  I’ve had a bad run of luck with dentists who suggest far more work than my teeth need.  I feel Dr. Dena is extremely honest.  I had one cavity filled recently – I walked into the office and was out, filling complete, within 20 minutes. It was the easiest cavity I’ve ever had. The office is well-run and efficient, as is Dr. Dena and his assistant. So bummed that I just recently moved and have to find a new dentist. I’m seriously thinking about coming back just to have him do my dental work.

Thank you Dr. Dena and staff for your great dental care. It is important to find a professional, ethical, caring, and honest dentist and dental staff. I have found Dr. Dena and his staff to be all of that and more.  I understand that dental care and maintaining my own teeth can be expensive and costly deal but thanks to Dr. Dena, I visit him for regular cleaning and X-Ray, 2 times in a year and have been able to enjoy having my own teeth and saving lots of money, pain, and agony.  Thank you Dr. Dena and staff for your great dental care since 2008 Respectfully  ZN
