Dr. Wernick is Great! Knows what he’s doing, is virtually pain-free, only does what’s truly needed, not what’s great for his wallet. Good “bed-side” manners, explains everything and answers your questions. Just left 2 hours of prepping for 2 crowns, tons of drilling with novacaine, temps built and sent me on my way with instructions that made things very manageable and was even able to go teach a class at university. He’s great…really. OBTW, Susie, the office manager really knows the insurance world and really helps you out. Laura the hygienist is soft and thorough when cleaning teeth and Marlene works well with Dr. Wernick doing the work. All around a great team. Can’t wait to go back on 31st. for my 2 crowns If you are looking for a dentist,search no more. Check the out.Lastly. wonderful with kids

Highly Recommended. I have spent years going from Dentist to Dentist listening to their pitch on how bad my teeth are- how I need thousands of dollars worth of work done immediately. Not this office- what a relief that was to know they are legit and honest. I trust and recommend them.

I found Dr. Wernick after being quoted a ridicules amount for dental work. What a relief it was to find Dr. Wernick and his staff. My family and I have been using Dr. Wernick’s services for two years. Dr. Wernick and his staff are professional, fun, and they truly care about their clients. We have been to many different dentist offices and I have almost always had poor experiences. I have had dentist that over charge, try to up sell me on something that I do not really need, and some have just provided poor service and quality to their craft. Dr. Wernick runs his office differently. He is honest, fair, and provides great quality. Dr. Wernick provides multiple treatments plans in order to help address his each of his clients needs. My teeth have never been in such good shape!!! It is always a joy to go there the staff of four are always pleasent and they crack me the entire time!!! Honestly, best dentist office ever!!!

Dr Wernick and his very friendly and competant staff have consistently provided 5 star dental care for me and my family. We have been going to here since he established his practice in Oceanside and never once have we had to wait for our appointments. The focus has always been the patient. There are plenty of tv screens and they care about your comfort. The integrity of the practice is top-notch

We love our dentist, Dr. Wernick and staff! Every time we come in its more like visiting an old friend, we catch up, we laugh and we are very well taken care of. Our whole family enjoys the closeness that comes with being a part of the Oceanside family dentist family. We are so thankful for your many years of teeth cleaning and genuine care and we look forward to many more years to come

Karen S. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you, thank you, thank you for the amazing service!! Very professional, caring, calming and just all around amazing!! I am so happy to find a caring and amazing dental office!! Thank you for all your work and I will definitely be back.

Ty J. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Wernick for a little less than one year, but from the very beginning he and his staff have been wonderful to work with. They are extremely helpful and professional. They take their time to explain the procedure they recommend, from routine cleaning to deep cleaning, crowns, etc. They all make you feel very comfortable and his pricing is very reasonable.  If you’re looking for a great dentist and staff you can’t go wrong with Dr. Wernick

What a refreshing set of people at Dr. Warnick’s to supplement his great service! The last dentist I had gone to was the absolute worst in every respect. Perhaps I have done my penance because this office is the complete opposite – polite people making no personal judgments about the state of my dental health or lack thereof, coupled with an approach of helping me, not helping themselves and I’m just the pocketbook. The best dentist (and I’ve seen a lot) I’ve had in at least twenty five years! Thanks so much for helping me!

Dr. Wernick and personnel are so good you are almost glad to have a toothache.Seriously, first class all the way is my experience. Suzie is great and Laura is very skilled cleaning me up. Dr. Wernick is calm is and is keeping me healthy. And fun!

Randie L. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am scared to death of dentists.  Dr Wernick and his staff are the most wonderful and caring people.  They accommodate our whe family on the same day.  Well worth the hour plus drive. Wouldn’t think about switching ever

Joel C. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


Nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Wernick’s dental office. My wife and I are relatively new to the Carlsbad/ Oceanside area and I initially went to his office to have a chipped crown looked at (put in 9 months prior by a previous dentist), which was concerning me. Dr. Wernick examined the tooth/ crown, gave me my options, told me he recommended a new crown (which I agreed with). He and all of his office staff made the procedure for the new crown seamless and successful. The office hours are also excellent, I was able to come in prior to work, and not miss a beat. Lastly, he and the office staff always explain why and what they were doing, before doing it, and they were always keeping my comfort level in mind throughout the procedure. My replacement crown is performing very, very well and I couldn’t be happier. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr. Wernick’s office for all dental needs from cleanings to more complex work such as fillings and crowns

I’m so glad I found this wonderful group! Dr. Wernick and his staff are amazing! They are all so kind, professional and honest!!!! I had a few experiences with previous dentist and I wish I would have found them sooner. I felt like they did what was necessary and didnt add on anything to up the price. Very reasonably priced for their professional services. I will be making sure that any dental insurance I have will be taken at this office….they are that good!

Susan D. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


So glad we changed dentist and started coming to Dr. Wernick. Our former dentist’s staff was always trying to get us to purchase things that wasn’t covered by our insurance and they knew it. My family and I will stay with Dr. Wernick forever

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


On Sunday unfortunately I lost one  of my crown, I called the office and left a message. First thing Monday morning I received a call from Steven Wernick’s office. They gave me the first appointment, Dr.  Wernick was able to help me with my crown & I was out of there. Amazing to see how professional this office is. They don’t enroll you into treatment you don’t  need. It’s a fresh breath of air to find businesses which treat their customers with respect and deliver nothing less than perfection

Brenda D. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love the staff at Dr. Wernick’s office!  They make your visit personal and relaxing by asking about your latest trips and how your pets are doing.  Then they put on an entertaining TV show and lean you back in the comfortable chair.  I could almost fall asleep!

It’s awesome to FINALLY have a dentist we like and trust! Dr Wernick fixed a broken filling for me, so gentle and pain free. Laura cleaned my teeth the other day and again… gentle and pain free! The staff is SO kind! We are without dental insurance right now and they’re super affordable… especially for a new patient! I’ve referred family and friends and all have been very happy with their experience as well. Never going anywhere else!

These guys are beyond amazing. If you need a dentist, just go to them. They are so nice and they do amazing work. I’ve been going to them for years now and they do great work with not only the regular cleanings, but I’ve had some major work done and they’ve done outstanding work and will do it until its 100% correct and to your liking

Rachel Vasko (Source: Google)


Dr. Wernick and his team are fantastic! Due to a recent move, I had to leave this clinic for a year. They welcomed me back with open arms when I returned- even remembered details and facts about me! The team always gives me honest feedback about my teeth and how I can improve. Going to the dentist isn’t such a gruesome task when they make you feel comfortable!

Molly B. from Tri-City, Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you are looking for a GREAT dentist ….this REALLY is the dentist for you.Growing up my parents didn’t take us to the dentist or even teach us about dental hygiene… Needless to say, because of this, my teeth were already in poor shape by the time I reached early adulthood….Then I had a couple of REALLY BAD/ PAINFUL experiences with dentist’s and stopped going all together. When I did go it was because of a toothache…..and rather than go through another painful root canal or anything like that I would just have them pull the tooth. As you can imagine….I’m missing a few teeth. My husband was Dr Wernick’s 1st patient in our family…and he was thoroughly impressed after only 1 visit with him. Then we started taking our kids to see Dr Wernick and they really like him too. This left only 1 person in our house that was not seeing a dentist regularly….and of course  I started getting pressured to make myself an appointment. Well, I FINALLY made myself an appointment.    At 1st my heart was racing and I’m sure my blood pressure was through the roof!! I literally have a “white-knuckle” fear of Dentists ….but I’m not afraid of Dr Wernick!! He truly is the MOST gentle dentist that I have EVER been to..and I have been to my fair share of them. He and his staff are so kind and  compassionate. I really am so happy that we found Dr Wernick. I had a crown build-up today and barely felt a thing!! Seriously,  there is NO ONE that is more gentle than this dentist. You won’t be disappointed!

I have been with Oceanside Family Dentist since Dr. Stevenson in 1993 When Dr. Wernick came to the family it was easy to see why Dr Stevenson chose him. The team great you when you come in, make you feel relaxed while your there, give you the best care, work with your insurance and remind you that they are thankful for YOU being apart of their family I recommend this team to anyone who is looking for more than just a dentist because you become part of their family

Tamara Michel (Source: Facebook)


Best dentist we have ever been to!! The staff is amazing. They are professional and they truly care about their patients. I truly love that when I enter the office…it’s like “everyone knows your name.” The work is exceptional. I have never had to return and ask for something to be fixed or a tooth to be grinded down. The prices are fair and the Doctor Wernick will not try to convince you that you need something that is not actually imperative (I could go into detail about a broken bridge that I’ve had for four years….but that is just embarrassing). Probably the most important thing is that I trust him, he is fair, kind, and doesn’t treat you like you he’s trying to sell something to you. The consideration goes a long way in my book. If only there could be more dental practices like this!!! So happy my family and I have finally found a place that is worthy of 5 stars if not more!!! Can I give them 10??!!

Five Stars for Dr. Wernick. A truly wonderful Dentist. He does amazing work. His Dental Hygienist is wonderful too, and this comes from a very picky patient. I love this office, its clean, professional , and they do beautiful dentistry. You are in good hands if you are a patient here

My wife and I have been a patient of Dr Wernick over eight years he did an excellent job on all our dental need. The Dr Wernick, Laura and entire staff are awesome. The cleanings pleasant, I never have to wait, and my teeth look amazing! Plus they validate. I can highly recommend this office with his very friendly staff.

Tinh T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Steven E. Wernic and his team, ( Laura) are wonderful! Dr Steven is not only technically skilled, but HE REALLY CARES about his patients! You can tell that the entire staff takes pride in their work too.  Always concerned with the patient’s comfort level too.  I STRONGLY recommend  Dr. Steven office

I’ve had my easiest and most relaxing experiences at this dental office. From being greeted by name as soon as I enter the building, fast, professional, and easy dental work, I have never regretted trusting Dr.Warnick and his team to my dental care. Thank you!

Kristina K. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wernick is a fantastic dentist. They are thorough and kind and they take kids too! If you like personal care and a trustworthy dentist this is the place to be. I have been to other dentists who charge outrageous prices and insane fees and this is the complete opposite! We love Dr. Wernick, my 2-year-old, 4-year-old, and I all go here and I’ve never been more impressed with a family dentist 🙂

Shania B. from Mid-City, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Wernick and his staff are exceptional! They are always so kind, on time and ready to help. I always know exactly what to expect when I go in to see Dr.Wernick and he always goes above and beyond to make sure my needs are met. Highly recommend Dr.Wernick and all of his staff they are phenomenal

Dr. Wernick, Laura (the dental hygienist) and Susie at the front desk run an outstanding complete care dental facility. We always feel better after gong to see Dr. Wernick and his staff. They are friendly, meticulous and caring professionals. We are lucky to have them taking care of our teeth.

My husband and I have been coming here for 9 years now. Dr. Wernick and hygienist Laura are gentle, thorough, knowledgeable, and professional. Both are perfectionists. Dr. Wernick was incredibly sweet and patient when inspecting and cleaning my mother-in-law’s teeth- she was in the middle to late stages of Alzheimer’s Disease with Lewy Body Dementia and kept trying to get out of the dental chair. He put her at ease and she sat still for him, a feat of epic proportions. The front desk staff are also friendly and professional. We are grateful to have found them! Highly recommend

Steve Z. from Gig Harbor, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have only been coming to Dr Wernick for a couple months but I have already seen enough to know that he is one of the best dentists I have ever had.  I have moved around with the military and have had over 10 dentists and although some had great chairside manners and some were skillful, Dr Wernick is both.  He is super polite and tells you everything he is doing or recommends.  He seems to have a great attention to detail.  Just a genuinely nice guy – I even saw him pick up printouts for his front office lady, and after my appointment (which was just before lunch), I saw him leaving with his staff to take them out to lunch, which I have never seen from a doctor. (They seem to work well together and like each other!).  His dental assistant (think her name is Marlene) is also super nice and funny too.  And the front desk lady (sorry, I’m bad with names!) is professional, friendly, courteous and knowledgeable with billing details.  Anyhow, thank you for all your help with my teeth!!! PS.  Btw, he accepts the military dental insurance (active duty family members) which most dentists do not.  So thank you for your support of the troops indirectly! … I am always dismayed at how most dentists and doctors don’t indirectly support the military by their choice of which carriers to accept. PPS.  This is my honest and unbiased opinion.  I have no current or prior interest in or relationship with Dr Wernick or his staff.

Dr. Wernick and his team are amazing. The most honest, fun and easily going office I have ever been to. The culture there is amazing. They are well educated and very passionate about the quality of work they do and the your experience. They have great hours and provide treatment plan options that can work within any timeline and budget. I highly recommend all of my friends and family to this office.

Annette R. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wernick and his Dental Assistant Shannon are Amazing. Dr. Wernick really took the time to explain in detail all of my dental work that needed to be done. His office and staff are extremely professional. I am so happy to have found a place where they really seem to care. Thank you again Dr. Wernick and Staff
