Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Kat S. from Point Loma, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a woman in my fifties and I have just gone through the Invisilign process with Dr Adams. I cannot say enough about how professional, as well as how kind Dr Adams was. He always found a way to encourage me. When I felt frustration and doubted my decision of going through such an orthodontic process at my age, he would come up with those kind cheerful words and make me feel confident again. Now I am so happy, glad and grateful for my beautiful smile :))) The office is pristinely clean and the staff always greets you with warm smiles on their faces. The running of the office is seamless and organized ; I never waited to be seated. I very highly recommend Dr Adams. In fact, I would not dream of going to another orthodontist, he is the best!

We love Dr. Adams’ office! The administrative team is completely organized and so welcoming and kind. The hygienists that have worked with my (9 yo) son are very competent and have great interactions and make a point to educate proper hygiene and techniques, which was helpful for us. The pediatric Dentist has been nothing short of amazing, extremely talented in her field and SO great at keeping children in a positive mindset while there for difficult work! This was key for us because my child has sensory and anxiety needs that have not been met by any other dentist we have encountered. Dr. Adams is very personable and clearly a top performer in Orthodontics. My son doesn’t fear coming to the Dentist here and has excitement about getting braces, instead of dread, because of how Amazing these people are at their jobs. I couldn’t be more happy with our experience and recommend them for any pediatric dentistry needs, especially for special needs or sensitive children.

Dr. Adams office is the best!  I have 2 children, one who does NOT like go to the dentist.  She is 9 years old and has freaked out every time she has been to the dentist since she was 2, but Dr. Adam’s staff is AMAZING with her!  Chantal talks her down each and every time she comes.  She talks to her in a way that empowers my daughter and makes her feel comfortable.  My daughter asks millions of questions at every step and Chantal patiently answers all of them.  In fact, this last visit, she didn’t even cry!  Nayeli was able to even get x-rays from her!  Nayeli remains very calm and patient and does not get frustrated with her.  My daughter is also going there for orthodontist work, which is also phenomenal.  Mariza cleaned my son’s teeth.  He is much easier, but actually gets really excited about going.  Everyone is very friendly and greets us with smiles on their faces as soon as we walk in.  The whole place is child friendly with a large aquariaum, games and ipads for the kids to play on.  When I have come across them outside, they say hello.  I am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with 19 years of practice, so I know what it takes to have good pediatric skills.  This office has it!! We have been to other pediatric dentists, whom we have also liked, but nothing compares to Dr. Adams office!

This office is amazing. The staff is always friendly and they feel more like friends that you see on occasion then a dr office.  I never have any questions or concerns about the work that they do because it always explained.  It is also nice to have the ability to do braces and cleanings in the same place. The office is always clean and the atmosphere is nice. I would definitely recommend this place to all my family and friends!!   I love how they have become like family!!

I recently started bringing my toddler here and the experience has been great. The staff is very friendly, from the front desk to the techs and dentist. Their location is nice and they have their own parking lot on the side street, which is essential there since the only other parking is metered street parking. I also love that they send advance reminders. Appointments get scheduled so far in advance that its easy to forget when they are. They send reminders the week prior which is super helpful! Im happy I found this dental office, they really are amazing!

Juan Z. from Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you need dental work this is the only place that will do the job the right way. Doctor  Adams with so many years of experience will treat you like familly  and let you know exactly what need to be done for your teeth always keeping in mind your health benefits.  Flor  and  Jossy  two of Doctor Adams team members have great personality and  when working on your teeth they are verry professional and know what they are doing. I dont keep track of time but when i have an appointment with Dr Adams i like to give them all time that they need to work on my teeth because my teeth are verry important to me and i love my smile i would not like to have to hide my teeth in front of my friends when i smile thats why when i smile i do it proudly, thanking Dr Adams and his team for helping me whit my Dental needs, they also provide invisaline line, a treatment that makes your teeth perfect. And the good thing is your whole family can benefit  from this.

Jorge P. from Chula Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Adams and the staff are really professional and personable. They know my kids names by heart and always make them feel comfortable in the office. My daughter went through her whole orthodontics experience here and she loved it. Her teeth look perfect. We had to leave due to a military move but if we ever get stationed in San Diego again we are Dr. Adams patients for life.

First off let me say: My teeth were horrible! Then I found Dr. Addams office! The staff is so friendly and helpful, I had know idea just how much they could actually do for my teeth, turns out, a lot! They helped me work out a payment plan with their Financial team, even on my student budget. Now I have an almost perfect smile (I’m still in the middle of my plan) and no one can tell I’m wearing them! P.s if you have kids such a fun place! Beautiful aquarium, fun toys you can win with points you get during visits, and free arcade games!

I’ve been attending Dr. Adams Invisalign facility for over a year now and I have to say that it’s the best place to receive dental work. The staff has excellent manners and respect for all customers. When you enter the facility your met with all smiles and positivity. I would recommend Dr. Adams facility to all whose looking to have that beautiful smile and I can attest to that first hand. Thank you Dr. Adams!

Shasta S. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Adams and is team are truly a Gem in the field of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics! We have been patients for about 7 years and we were treated like family from day 1. Can your kids say they love to go to the dentist? Mine do!!! They accommodate my busy schedule and are considerate with my time by combining dentist and ortho appointments. They provide the highest level of care and even give moms a rose for Mother’s Day which was very sweet especially when my spouse was deployed! No matter your dental budget they provide options with out sacrificing the top notch care! Stop looking and contact SanDiegoSmilePro 239 Laurel Street, Suite 201 San Diego, CA 92101

My daughter woke up excited to get her teeth cleaned this morning knowing she was going to see the most amazing staff at Dr.Adams! Little did we know that she would not only get a standing ovation for finally breaking her thumb sucking but Yossy had taken the time to remember her birthday as well!! She surprised her with the most thoughtful birthday card and gift certificate to encourage and reward her for all her hard work to change her thumb sucking habit. The entire staff has always gone above and beyond for us and if you are ever in need of the best pediatric dentist in San Diego look no further!!!

Sabrina M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Adams and crew have been an amazing team. I have two children now 11 and 9 years old. We’ve been coming here since my older child was 3. First for dental cleanings and now we are deep into orthodontic care. April works hand in hand with Dr. Adams for orthodontic care and she is always incredibly efficient, knowledgeable and attentive. Silvia is always a pleasure with phone calls and working with us and our schedule needs. Recently we needed an unexpected appointment as my daughter needed an unexpected adjustment and Silvia went out of her way to get her seen when no appointment existed. Flor and Silvia went out of their way to accommodate us. When going through orthodontic care, especially with two children at the same time, it is clearly a financial and time investment. Dr. Adams and his fantastic team have felt like they are right there with us going through this. I’m appreciative for their friendliness and ability to work with us to make the schedules work for us.

Krystal Y. from El Cajon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Adams and his team for a little over a year now. I was referred by a co worker for Invisalign and since then have referred three others from work! I was very apprehensive at first (mainly because I’ve never spent this much money on something other than my car), but I’m so happy that I gave them a chance. They’re all a very good team!! I’ll be sad when my treatment is over. He and his staff are amazing. Always friendly, super personable, when I walk in they all know me and talk to me just like we’d all been friends forever. Flor has been taking care of me the last couple times I’ve gone in and let me tell you, I love her to pieces. She listens, makes sure I’m always comfortable, communicative and is gentle. She’s super sweet, I felt comfortable enough sharing very intimate details of my life with her and Krystal. Instead of the traditional, “oh hunny. I’m so sorry” generic phrase people who really don’t care say, Flor and Krystal both connected with me and shared stories of their own to let me know that I wasn’t alone. Two beautiful souls right there. Dr. Adams is lucky to have them. I can’t forget the ladies at the from desk either. 🙂 always the first ones to welcome me when I come in. Super nice girls!!! I always look forward to going to the dentist!! Never thought I’d say that!! Haha.

Denny C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


When into Dr. Adams office for a routine checkup on my Invisalign and did another scan of my teeth for new trays the associate I had was Krystle wonder person to talk to and explained what was going to happen and did the scan. She was professional in what she had to do and also explained everything well. The treatment is also working from what I can see and was great investment afterwards for a lifetime.

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


Dr. Adams, Dr. Huynh, and their entire staff are fabulous!!! My kids love going there. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. My daughter broke both of her adult front teeth within the past year and they quickly fixed both her teeth and they look beautiful. My son has orthodontics through them as well and Dr. Adams and the staff have done a great job with him. They have the best technology and explain everything patiently with no pressure to commit. We couldn’t be happier with the service and quality of work.

C. H. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great pediatric dentist!  Dr. Adams was more than happy to go over my son’s exam & x-rays…I wish every dentist was this knowledgeable and considerate.  My son’s last visit was for a cleaning and x-rays (Thanks Chantal & Tanya!) and today we started the journey towards orthodontic perfection 🙂  (Krystle worked her magic w/ Sam and April calmed my nerves & got me through the paperwork)  Great staff, great dentist, what more could you ask for!

I had never been more pleased with a work, best staff and dentist ever. My son is 7 years old and he had bad experience with dentist due to terrible treatment so after carefully looking I found this place and decided to give it a try; to be honest I think this was the best decision I have ever made. The place is easy to find and very welcoming from the moment you step into the building, the staff in front desk is extremely nice, friendly and welcoming. Considering the trauma experience my child had for dentist due to past experience elsewhere I can say that the dental assistants are super patience with the kids and explain everything making the kids feel comfortable enough to forget their fears and of course it makes the parents feel safe that the kid are in great hands. My son was so happy, he was ready to be back hahah. Thank you so much Girls for everything you all did to keep my son calm and comfortable during his evaluation and cleaning he is looking forward to be back

We are relatively new patients, but we look forward to continuing to be very satisfied members of the patient family for as long as our daughter can be seen by a pediatric dentist. I particularly appreciated the time that both Dr. Adams and Dr. Hayes spent in helping us understand the treatment plan prior to the appointment, and following up after treatment to ensure that everything continued to be fine with our daughter. Ensuring that the patient receives quality care and has a positive experience in the process were top priority. There is visible cohesion among the staff who were all very friendly and made us feel valued during our visit. They were very responsive to all questions and concerns. We highly recommend Dr. David C. Adams, DDS, MS & Associates to other families.

Dental hygiene is so important but it’s always been scary going to the dentist until I found this office, they are so welcoming & kind! I loved coming here for Orthodontics so much I started bringing my children for their cleanings here as well. The staff is always so pleasant and when I go in with my children they are always willing to help out if needed. Yossy, or Flor is who we typically see & they make sure to make sure you are comfortable and informed on what is going on, best dental office i’ve ever been too. if you’re trying to find the right pediatric dentist/ orthodontist look no further! you won’t find better than here!

B. J. from Valley Center, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Adams and his amazing staff have been caring for our family for years. He has addressed my husband’s complex orthodontic needs, and is currently providing orthodontic care for my teenage son and my elementary-age daughter. He is extremely knowledgeable, highly professional, and wonderfully personable. As someone who tends to be reserved with regards to all things medical, I have come to trust Dr. Adams, and I hold him in the highest regard. I can’t say enough about his staff! Every time I call, I can’t help but smile at the warm (and predictable!) phone greeting. We are always treated like family when we visit the office. Over the years, they have worked with us as a cohesive and caring team to accommodate our unique needs, from unpredictable mishaps, to scheduling, to financing. April, the office manager, is always warm, kind, professional and efficient. Flor, the clinical supervisor, lends an unsurpassed element of knowledge, skill, and genuine caring to the team. I always have peace when she is caring for my children’s orthodontic needs, knowing that they are in the most gentle, capable hands! We have had wonderful experiences with Chantal, Nayeli, Budur, and many others. I would recommend Dr. Adams and his team to anyone seeking top-notch quality and caring orthodontic treatment!

Kimberly M. from Coronado, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Adams’ office! I’ve been bringing my three kids here for two years now and they beg to go to their appointments, even my 4 yr old! The staff is AMAZING! They are so friendly and go out of their way to help, whether it’s finding me an appointment that’ll work with our crazy schedule, distracting my child while they are waiting, or asking if I’d like a bottle of water while I wait. April and Yossy are fantastic! Those two ladies go above and beyond every time we go in. I love seeing their smiling faces when we walk in! We’ve never looked forward to a dentist or orthodontist appointment before finding Dr. Adams and his wonderful staff. Highly recommend!

Dr. David C. Adams and the staff of San Diego Pro Smile are courteous, professional, and make their patients feel like they are visiting family. I thoroughly enjoy coming for checkups because I know I’m going to receive quality care and its just awesome to be greeted warmly the moment I walk through the door. For me a smile is everything. I wanted the best and after much research found Dr. Adams. I am so happy with my smile that I can’t help but smile while sharing my review. I not only trust him with my smile but my children’s as well. It’s really the quality care that people hope for and more. If you want to present the best version of yourself without saying a word then use your smile. And if you want the best smile and care for the buck look no further then here.

Outstanding service from entire team. They were caring and knowledgeable. Dr Adams explained everything very clearly and was very nice in his demeanor. His staff was courteous and friendly in giving me my first set of aligners. Highly recommend this team to anyone looking to improve your smile!

Eva A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Adams and Dr. Hayes are wonderful doctors who care about our kids’ dental health. My kids actually enjoy going to their dental appointments.  A big part of this kid friendly team is the staff. The minute you walk into the office, Silvia, Briana, or Tanya will greet you with a friendly smile. Soon after, the nurses will take time to come and greet the kids. Yossy, Chantal, Flor and Breelyn are all wonderful nurses. Dr.Adams and his team have the perfect formula for making dentistry fun for kids. I sincerely want to thank them for their genuine care for my daughters’ dental health.

Jorge S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff at Dr. Adams’ office is caring and attentive to our kid’s overall well being. Dr. Hayes is patient and a wonderful dentist. From the time we walk into the office, the front staff shows care and is always glad to see us. Our kids are not afraid to go and visit these guys, plus they always get a price at the end of the visit. Five stars to Dr.Adams, Dr. Hayes, and the wonderful staff of this dental office.

Dr. Adams and his entire staff have been fantastic and I can’t thank them enough. I’m in my late 30’s and always put off the real care that my teeth needed for various reasons. I’ve needed braces for a while and in the past when I have gone to orthodontists, they’ve been more interested in getting a down payment out of me than explaining what the plan is. I’ve also had to deal with staff that isn’t willing to help either. Dr Adams and his staff are wonderful. I figured I’d be that older guy in metal braces but Dr Adams is the Invisalign master. He’s a pro and he knows how to tell you what he wants to do along with how and why he wants to do it. He is also happy to address and thoughts/concerns I may have. I also have to give a shout out to April who has been a HUGE help too. I needed some additional help coordinating with other offices for jaw surgery along with some other things (I know I sound high maintenance) and I couldn’t have done it without her. The rest of the staff (sorry I don’t remember all the names) are great. From the people behind the counter who are always friendly to the rest of the staff helping with my Invisalign and digging through my mouth, thank you!!!

Eileen E. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been taking my 3 kids to Dr. Adams’s office for several years after seeing 3 other pediatric dentists. The entire staff is courteous, accommodating and kind, even with us nervous mothers. They provide all kinds of neat entertainment for the kids while waiting and while getting work done (like a TV on the ceiling for movie watching, a neat fish tank and arcade games set on free play) and they give out tokens to be exchanged for prizes, stickers, and the kit with toothbrush, toothpaste and floss. My kids really look forward to their visits

Brinny H. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have never been into a dental office that cared more about their patients than this one. From the moment you walk in, the front office staff has the most welcoming presence. They are so helpful and very knowledgeable.The D.A’s and RDA’s that work here are as good as they get. The supervisor, Flor, is not only an amazing RDA, she’s one of the most calming and intelligent people I’ve ever met. All the girls that work here are SO great with kids. I’ve seen kids come into the office crying and afraid, and they leave with a giant smile. Dr. Adams and Dr. Huynh both care so much about the patients happiness and well being. The doctors and staff are constantly making sure the patient is being put first. They grab you bottled water while you’re waiting, they have iPads for the kids to play on while they wait, and they really make sure your whole experience is a good one. I would recommend every parent I know to bring their kid here. Dr. Adams wants to see the best possible outcome on each patient and really takes his time to make sure that happens. And again, I can’t reiterate how amazing the staff is here!

I’ve taken my 3 year old to multiple pediatric dentists, but this was by far the best experience. Yossy took great care of him, and explained every tool she was going to use before using it. This was also the first appointment where my son let them take X-rays because he felt so comfortable there. When we left he told me that he would only wanted to go to the Dentist if we came back to Dr. Adams office. I also took my 1 year old for the first time to the dentist. Breelyn did such a great job. She let him hold the tools before using them and let me sit in the chair with him. It was a great experience and I can’t wait to go back in 6 months! My kids actually had FUN at the dentist!

Erica C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


My children love coming to this office everyone is very attentive and show that they genuinely care about their patients the office is always very clean and the ladies always offer fresh cold water overall what a wonderful experience. Tip for the new patients coming to this office, the parking lot is tricky to find the first time it is located on the east side of the building on 3rd across the street from the office.

Thy G. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Adams and his staff are the best! I was looking for a highly rated Invisalign provider and my friend (who is currently undergoing treatment here) referred me and I’m so glad he did. Dr. Adams is an expert in orthodontics and dental care. He is passionate about what he does and getting you the results that you expect and deserve. Additionally, my experience every time I’ve visited his office has been consistently exceptional! I don’t know about you, but I’m a stickler when it comes to customer experiences. As soon as you step foot in the office, you will be greeted with so much warmth that you can’t help but want to experience that again. All the ladies genuinely care about you and do their best to make you feel at ease. I just received my first Invisalign trays today and am super excited about my journey to a perfect smile!

This is the most appealing, lovely dental office I’ve ever experienced. The staff is obviously happy and the decor is charmingly designed for the pediatric population it largely serves. My visit was for a orthodontic consultation with Dr. Adams who is relaxed and accessible while being exceptionally accomplished in his field. I felt confident that I had received the best possible analysis of my dental situation.

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


This office is FANTASTIC for children.  They are very caring and understanding even when the child might be having a tough time.  With a specialty in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics, Dr. Adams provides a comprehensive background to evaluate and determine the best options for your child.  We have been going here for years and have never been disappointed…they even gave me a birthday card when I brought my kids in on my birthday.
