Great staff. The second you walk in the door you are greeted with a warm smile. Dr. Valerie’s staff seem like they have been together for years, they are such a cheerful bunch. Dr. Valerie was a breath of fresh air. In the past I did not really look forward to going to the dentist, but Dr. Valerie was very gentle with me and did an amazing job in a quick amount of time. She is so easy to talk to and understood and acknowledged my concerns before she started. It is easy to recommend her to someone seeking a dentist, but I would highly recommend her to those who have ever had a bad experience, because my visit went so good. I now look forward to my next visit with Dr. Valerie, and do not need to look for another dentist again. THANK YOU ! ! !

Dr. Scola and her staff are truly amazing. Throughout my life, I’ve had horrible (and painful) experiences with dentists. I can honestly say that Dr. Scola and her team not only make me feel comfortable, but have restored my faith in the profession. She and her staff are compassionate and highly skilled. They use modern technology to provide the highest level of care, and it shows. I can’t thank them enough for walking over these hurdles with me when I’ve needed them most. A shout out to Faith and Emily too – they’re both rock stars in their own rights.

The very best dental office you could ever hope for! My previous dentist retired, leading me to an extensive search for a new dentist. Fortunately, a good friend recommended Dr. Scola. My search was over after just one visit…and that late-in-the-day emergency first visit resolved a molar problem I’d had for more than a month! Definitely a very special group of people providing exceptional dental care. I highly recommend Dr. Scola and her team and easily give them a five-star rating! Go see for yourself!

This office has some of the nicest people I’ve ever met, not only is Dr. Scola incredibly sweet but made every experience pleasant even the bad ones. The dental hygienists and the front office ladies make you feel so at home and you could just sit and talk for hours. Thank you for taking someone scared of the dentist and giving them a wonderful outlook on it.

Dr. Scola is simply put the best dentist I have ever seen. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She always takes the time and explains to me exactly what is going on with my teeth in a way that’s easy to comprehend and makes sure I don’t leave with any unanswered questions. Her office staff is extremely friendly and welcoming as well. I only wish I could find a primary care doctor that is as good as her. If you’re in the market for a Dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Scola. You won’t be disappointed

Jessica M. from Winchester, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m deathly afraid of dentists so I normally just don’t go. Over the weekend I had a toothache and called Dr. Scola’s office and was able to get in the next day. The office staff was super nice and very helpful with the questions I had. Dr. Scola was amazing! She made me feel right at ease although I was trembling with fear. I had to get 2 fillings and she truly made the whole experience that much better. I walked out of that office called my husband and said that it was truly an amazing experience at the dentist. I would totally recommend Dr. Scola and her office staff, I even scheduled an appointment to return for a full cleaning.

Alyssa B. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Outstanding dental and customer services! The office is very clean and I liked the open feel it had. Not like I was trapped in a room. I needed to get my teeth cleaned before my wedding, and even with a booked schedule, Dr. Scola’s team made it happen! Natalie provided an incredible two hour session with a full work up of X-rays and cleaning. She made me feel relaxed and was incredibly knowledgeable about ortho, and was just down right funny. She’s a very pleasant person (the kind of person you trust all up in your mouth lol) I’m going to embarrass myself here, and admit I haven’t been to the dentist since college back in 2012… that’s 6 years people! *gasp* and she got all the nasty plaque buildup off my teeth! I then asked about cosmetic whitening services because I wanted to spruce up my smile before my wedding day. So I opted for the GLO whitening treatment. I loved it!! Thank you so much to everyone who helped me today. You made me feel like a million bucks when I left.

Love Dr. Scola! I had been a patient at a few other dental groups and had a horrible experience with them. I was misdiagnosed, then told I needed a bunch of costly procedures that didn’t make sense. I went to Dr. Scola for a second opinion and she confirmed what I was thinking. She gave me peace of mind, saved me money, and provided excellent care. She is trustworthy, friendly, down to earth, and her staff is amazing. I will never leave her practice!

Whether it’s a checkup, cleaning, having a scared child’s tooth pulled, or having a dental procedure performed, our family has had a great experience so far. Dr Scola and her staff are professional, friendly and have been very helpful in making sure we keep up our yearly dental maintenance. Thanks for all that you do Dr Scola and Staff!

Alisha M. from Temecula, CA (Source: Yelp)


Happy to have a dentist and hygienist that are very thorough. Dr. Scola did a physical exam on my jaw and neck, and even listened with a stethoscope to rule out subtle TMJ issues. I came in for a check up/exam, as I was told by another dentist that I needed several things done, it didn’t feel right and I thought to get a second opinion. I’m so glad I came here! My x rays and exam showed that everything was great, and no further work needed! This probably just saved me $500. As a Naturopathic doctor I believe dental health is one of the most critical aspects of health and I refer my patients to Dr Scola.

Lindy P. from Temecula, CA (Source: Yelp)


First of all, Dr Scola and her team deserve the 5 stars! Second of all, I am a real scaredy cat when it comes to the dentist but after asking for recommendations Dr Scola was suggested to me as being a great dentist to visit. Their recommendation was so accurate! Dr Scola is a highly accomplished dentist which gave me great confidence, but the big difference for me is her very caring, gentle, non-judgmental treatment of sensitive patients such as me. Her assistant, Faith, is also very caring and experienced. Great experience!

the search is over! This is the best Dentist I have ever seen. Dr Valerie and her staff have always taken great care me and my family. I have started sending my mom there, and my kids really like the friendly atmosphere and the toy box. Dr. Valerie always puts her patients first. I have even reached her for an emergency.

Jessica R. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Valerie is not your typical dentist. I absolutely trust her and would take her advice. I love her! I have been to multiple dentists office where I felt like they wanted to sell me more work than needed and I hated it. We all need work here and there and when you do I would go to Scola Family Dentistry! They are the best.

Mike W. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


We needed a new dentist for our kids and couldn’t be happier with Dr. Scola. She is friendly and caring and addresses questions directly and honestly with out trying to sell you “treatments you don’t need. We had come from another dental practice and we were shocked at the lack of care they had for our children’s dental hygiene . Dr. SoCal took her time and showed us exactly what the other practice had been missing. Thank you so much Dr. Scola for being an example of what quality patient care is.

Dawn B. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


does anyone out there put the dentist off!?? That’s how I used to feel, before seeing Dr Scola! The care she gives her patience is like NONE I’ve ever had! You never have to second guess her recommendation. I hardly have pain with the work she does! She has integrity, and in such a caring way. she actually called to check on me!!! not her staff, her!! When I leave her office my spirits are up, there’s laughter and smiles during your visit. I actually enjoyed my visit to my dentist Yah! my reason for posting is… I’ve been looking for a great dentist my whole life, and now I’ve found her!!

Russ W. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing place and incredible people. No high pressure or sales tactics. Dr. Scola took the time to explain my exam and make me feel like family. All of the people in the office really care about you. They make you feel at home and work to give you the best option for your care. It reminds me of my family dentist from Boston. No one tried to upsell or scare me into buying services that I didn’t need. Honest caring people. if there were 6 stars I would give them all to them.

Tia B. from Hubert, NC (Source: Yelp)


So Dr. Scola called me in December 2015 to personally apologize for the mix up with the billing in her office. Apparently she had no idea I was having an issue with the billing because they never told her, even though they told me she said not to refund me. Don’t worry, that person no longer works there. Dr. Scola was very sincere and obviously cares a lot about her business’ reputation. I’m glad everything worked out because as my first review states I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS DENTIST. P.S. I was refunded my money for the cleaning I had to pay for.

Our family has been among Dr. Scola’s regular patients since she came to Murrieta several years ago to open her practice here. She is skilled, confident and has a friendly chairside manner. Our experiences with her partner-specialists, assistants, hygienists and office staff have been over all consistent, courteous and professional. We enthusiastically recommend Dr. Valerie Scola, D.D.S.

Dr Scola family dentistry is amazing. My husband and I started coming here 3 years ago and couldn’t be happier with Dr. Scola and her awesome staff. Everyone treats you like you are family and really give you the first class treatment every time. They have excellent communication and I appreciate the text reminders we get for our upcoming appointments. We are so happy we found them and I would highly recommend Dr. Scola to anyone looking for affordable and quality dental care.

Laurie M. from Wildomar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Professional Plus! Such a positive, friendly vibe my entire time there (about 1.5 hours). Got me in with only one day notice. Dr. Scola meticulously filled the top of a bottom front tooth which I tore off by using it as a tool to open a bag of trail mix…sound familiar?! Looks (and feels) so much better! Many thanks to this top notch team!

Abel D. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr. Scola and her staff to be quite professional and competent. Dr. Scola answered all my questions regarding my treatment and possible future treatments. Alexis the hygienist thoroughly explained what was wrong with my gums and teeth and advised me on how to improve my dental health. I highly recommend this dental office!

Heather P. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


My Husband and I went to Dr. Scola for a routine dental visit, exam, x-rays and cleaning. We were very impressed at how thorough she was. Her office was clean, staff was professional and welcoming. After we left we asked each other at the same time…what’s the catch? That was the most thorough dental visit and cleaning! We left with sparkling teeth! No catch just a great family office that cares about its patients. If you are looking for a dentist you will love Dr. Scola. Thank you Dr.Scola we are happy we found you.

I went to Dr. Scola on a reccomdation of a friend, and was extremely satisfied with the services I received and the staffs professionalism, and patient care they provided. Dr. Scola made me feel very at ease and explained everything in great detail. She is also very personable and knowledgeable. She is Wonderful dealing with Veterans like myself.

Kendra Grasso (Source: Google)


Dr. Scola is by far the best! I switched dentists, feeling like I was being taken for high costs and treatments I didn’t need. So glad I found this office! She takes her time and makes sure you are comfortable and only wants the best for her patients and their treatment plan. The hygienist was amazing, taking her time, and communicating every step of the way! My teeth have never felt better! Now I will be switching my whole family to her with confidence! Thankyou!

H G. from CA, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Scola and Alexis are amazing. I have extreme dental anxiety and they showed so much compassion and professionalism that it had me near tears. They did a very thorough exam and actually listened to to my concerns and issues and helped with constructive resolutions. Alexis was great with checking and cleaning my teeth. She was super gentle, explained everything she was doing before she did it, and worked quickly. She also keeps her work area very neat and clean, washing her hands and wiping down everything as she worked. First time in my life I’ve actually enjoyed going to the dentist.

Tiffany W. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


I adore this place, especially Dr Scola herself! She is soooo personable around town (at the Rod Run), and, professionally, I could not imagine a finer dentist. She recently wowed me even more than I thought was possible by calling to check on my dental follow up (to an extreme sensitivity I experienced). She’d said, “We’ll call you” and she took the time to call me herself. This woman has 4 kids and a full time job! And obviously, a heart of gold. My socks were blown off. I’d give 10 stars if I could. A true Inland Empire GEM!

Sergio B. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Valerie Scola is by far the greatest dentist in the Inland Empire. I had some office issues with regards to their previous staff but she stepped in and made it right. Other then that I have recommended all my friends and family to Scola Family Dentistry over the past several years and will continue to do so. Thank you Valerie for making a wrong a right!

Sandy L. from Buckeye, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Scola (and staff!) How do I love thee? Seriously, amazing experience every time I go. It doesn’t matter if it’s me or my teenagers, consistency in care every time. Today, I had the “pleasure” of having some fillings replaced. I almost fell asleep in the chair. Dr. Scola is so gentle and her voice is so soft and soothing, it makes the experience so much better. Shout out to Natalie too! She’s the coolest hygentist around!

Noemi Gilbert (Source: Google)


Just love Dr. Scola and staff! I am usually fearful of going to the dentist but Dr. Scola us very patient and kind. She explains the procedures and carefully monitors me when working. She reacts quickly to any hint pain or unpleasantness and ensures to proceed after addressing the issue, whether it’s giving more medication or talking me through it. I no longer fear going to the dentist.

The staff is very professional and personable here! Loved my experience today. Alexis cleaned my teeth and we chatted about all the good shows out there to binge watch. Melinda Anderson filled a cavity and made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. She went above and beyond and didn’t let me leave till my smile was perfect! Best team in town!

L A. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m super glad I was recommended to Dr. Scola. She’s the best and so are her staff. They are compassionate and knowledgeable. I’m a cancer warrior. Everything about my health is particular. They “put up” with me. And for that I’m thankful. They work with my insurance. Dr. Scola pulled a tooth out for me that I really needed. Out. That was over a year ago. Dr. Scola is my Dentist. I’m HaPpY! She is. Want great care with compassion? Call Dr. Scola.

Sheri J. from Temecula, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just love Dr Scola and her staff. Very friendly. Dr Scola is very thorough and she explains what needs to be done in detail. I have gone to other dentists in the past and often wondered if I really needed to have everything done that was suggested. I totally trust Dr Scola with her advise and expertise. I have friends that take their kids to Dr Scola and their kids love her as well. Now that says a lot when kids love their dentist. Thank you Dr Scola. It doesn’t matter what your age, she will take good care of you.

Candace S. from Winchester, CA (Source: Yelp)


I drive about 30 miles from Oceanside just to see Dr. Scola. I have had a ton of dental work done over the years by quite a few different dentists, and none have ever made me feel comfortable like Dr. Scola does. Her office is clean and comfortable, and her staff is great. I highly recommend this office to everyone.

Valerie Scola is by far the greatest dentist in the Inland Empire. I had some office issues with regards to their previous staff but she stepped in and made it right. Other then that I have recommended all my friends and family to Scola Family Dentistry over the past several years and will continue to do so. Thank you Valerie for making a wrong a right!

Rhonda S. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to the same dentist for about 20 years and when I met Valerie, I decided to switch. It was the best decision I ever made. Not only is she the sweetest person, but she’s an awesome dentist. Her staff and hygienists were kind and patient and they did a great job cleaning my teeth. Valerie was good to explain what work I needed done and she did an excellent job getting it all done. I highly recommend Valerie if you’re looking for a new dentist!!!
