Lois J. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love my Dental Office!!! August made my 13th year here at Tierrasanta Dental Group. I’ve worked with a lot of different Dentists in my 13 years here, and I’ve seen a lot of changes, mostly for the better! I’ve worked with Dr Afshin Habashi for just about 10 years, and I must say that he is absolutely amazing!!! He’s an amazing Dentist, Husband, Father, Son, Son in Law, Brother, Friend, and Person in general. We’ve been through a lot together, and we both have great respect for one another! He’s by far the best Dentist I’ve worked with; he’s taught me so much! His patient care is outstanding, he is patient, caring, gentle, most importantly, he’s ethical! The rest of my team are top notch as well! We have the vibrant, young ladies in the front office, Raquel, Jessica, Kristin, and Katie. They are kind, intelligent, strong, as well as hardworking individuals. Our front office makes you feel welcomed from the very first phone call! Our back office team is incredible! We have our Associate Dentist Dr. Jami, she’s been with us about 2 years,; she is a wonderful Dentist, her patients love her and so do we! We have 2 awesome fulltime Hygienists, Kelsey and Giovanni (aka Jo). Kelsey has been with us for about 3 years; she’s a total joy(she’s my circle)! Jo has been with us for about a year, and we are so blessed to have her in our office! Our Assistants are phenomenal, if I should say so myself! We have Aurora, Julie, Chris, Rashelle and myself, Lois. We make your dental experience as enjoyable as a dental experience can be! We actually love what we do, and who we do it with, and who we do it for; we are a family!!! This is why I love Tierrasanta Dental Group!!! #ThePatientsAreATotalJoy

Can’t wait to let everyone know about this dental office. Everyone in this office from the front staff to the back office are great. They make you feel like family. I was never embarrassed about the condition of my teeth.  Doctor Habashi is the best!! He absolutely transformed my smile. His confidence made me feel like I was in good hands. Lois is an absolute angel and goes above and beyond. Chris did a great job helping me through the process. I was treated with dignity and respect and my teeth look stunning! I highly recommend this office and Doctor Habashi.

Rhonda B. from El Cajon, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thanks for squeezing me in.  I was in terrible pain after a crown was placed by my regular dentist (not their fault)…turned out I needed a root canal but they couldn’t get me in for 3.5 weeks and after about a week and a half the Motrin/Prescription Norco wasn’t even taking the edge off.  I called this office and they were able to squeeze me in to their very busy and packed schedule almost immediately.  Office was very nice and staff were great!  Everything went smooth and got to leave pain free.

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


A sincere thanks to Lois, Reynisha, Jessica, and Jennifer, for always making me feel comfortable and welcome. I’ve always feared going to the dentist and missed a few appointments. Yet the staff always treated me with warm and caring professionalism which put me at ease. A huge and special thanks to Azuhara the office manager. She set me up on the Smile financial plan and gave me some discounts that made getting my teeth fixed possible. Dr. Reyes was incredible. He’s the most highly skilled Periodontist I’ve ever met. The same goes for my Endodontist Dr. Karpman. Thanks to Dr. Lee, Jamie, Jhey, and everyone else who was involved. Last but certainly not least a special heartfelt thanks to my Dentist, DR. HABASHI. Your decorum, etiquette, and calm cool vibe made this process relatively painless. I appreciate you greatly and am thrilled with my new crowns. I feel like I can smile again! I would highly recommend the Tierrasanta Dental Group to anyone needing a dentist.

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


As everyone says when they walk through the door of their dentists’ office, “it’s been a while since I’ve been in…” that was me. I’m getting braces, and before I can proceed, I needed a general cleaning and xrays. I have an insurance that apparently is not widely accepted by good dentists, but I finally found Stonecrest Dental Group. They take my insurance, and they did a great job. Everyone I was in contact with was friendly and did their best to make me feel comfortable and help me understand the process. They have digital screens that allow you to see your xrays on screen while the dentist is explaining your teeth. After the exam, they showed me a wonderfully helpful itemized list of recommended work that included the phases in which they say I should do it, the tooth it applies to, and the prices without insurance, with insurance, and with their discount program. The dentist was thorough and was sensitive to the fact my teeth and gums were overly sensitive during the cleaning but still able to get it done well and overwith quickly. I have to come back a few times to replace some old fillings, but I’m confident in their knowledge and their work so far. Their list of services recommended also includes alternative options when available so you can choose a solution that fixes your teeth and fits your budget. I would definitely recommend this office if you’re in the market for a new dentist.

Tammy G. from Encinitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just switched Dentist after having a very uncomforable experience. Needless to say I was a bit hesitant to go to the dentist again. The first moment I walked in to this office I was greeted with a wonderful friendly , kind staff. From start to finish I had the best experience ever! Never thought I would say that i am actually looking foward to going back and getting work done. The staff here is very comforting, knowledgeable and will work with you on prices and explain everything so that you understand why the work is needed. Love this place! Stop here first you wont be dissappointed! Thanks to everyone for your great customer service!

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


I had a GREAT experience here. The front desk was very professional because as a new client, she had to ask me personal questions and she did it privately and respectfully. THE MOST IMPORTANT reason that I gave this place 5 stars was because of a dental assistant, LOIS. This lady was so friendly, funny, nice, welcoming, caring, and she definitely knew what she was doing. If you want to go to a dental place that has a clean, comfortable, and friendly environment, you should come here. As crazy as this sounds… I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MY NEXT DENTIST APPOINTMENT =)

Anneka P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I always have a great experience when I go to Tierrasanta Dental, Mona and Resha are there to greet you with a smile and the dental assistants, Michelle and Miss Lois, and  Dr Afshar is wonderful. They always make sure that I am comfertable. I was cold and they offered me a blanket, AWSOME!! My son usually goes with me when I get my teeth cleaned and when he does, Resha and Mona keep a close eye on him and make him feel welcome also. I have been getting sevices here since my son was a newborn he is 3 now, I wont go anywhere else. =0)

Micheal J. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is all about informative decisions!! When you go in for an exam, you will be educated about your teeth with digitial x-rays that you can see on the computer screen along with pictures of your teeth. The Dentist told me what I needed, then the insurance Benefits lady told me what my insurance covered and what it didnt cover, so I would not be getting a bill later. What I like most is that they show you options, of course the options range from the lowest , cheapest material to the most expensive but I appreciate the fact that I as a patient get to choose what I want to be placed into my mouth. I could not afford to get the most expensive material, even thought I understood the longevitiy of the material. But The staff was very professional in completing my case and I will definately be going back. In the future if I have more money I will go back and get the better crown, but at least for now I now the dentist did a great job and I appreciate her open, honest, educating approach to enable me to be part of my dental treatment. GIVE THEM A TRY YOU WILL BE IMPRESSED!

Jackie T. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have not cake to Tierrasanta dental a few times! Each time Jo has cleaned my teeth and she does an awesome job! Gentle yet effective. She’s even convinced me to floss every now and then even though she probably wants me to flow twice daily…. Staff seems friendly and I also got xrays which didn’t hurt, I’ve gone to a couple of places that put the piece in your mouth I’m such an awkward position. Not here! They accept my insurance and credit care which is awesome. It’s easy to schedule and appt with email and phone call reminders. I’ve been to another place here I. Tierrasanta and it’s hard to schedule an appt or change an appt because they only have certain days or hours available. I highly recommend this dentist office!

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


This review is both for Dr.Jami and Tierrasanta Dental group. I have been visiting Dr.Jami for last 5 years even at different location and now at Tierrasanta dental group. Her attention to various aspects of service and patient requirements are amazing. She explains and shows everything. Dentist without proper assistants for X-rays, cleaning and friendly front desk will not be successful. Her new location staff are very welcoming from front desk ladies to X-ray lady to assistant who did the cleaning. This group and Dr.Jami will continue to have our family business.

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


I really had a good experience with the team at Tierrasanta Dental. (As good as one could hope for since I have a tooth in need of help which is really stressful.) I needed a periodontist so started the search with those that are on my insurance plan. And then went to Yelp to check the reviews. The results were all over the board. Many with complaints that would make anyone concerned about going to any dentist. So, I was really uncertain about what my experience was going to be like. I called a few from the list of providers, one with higher ratings than Tierrasanta Dental. But, interestingly, I was not treated very well over the phone with 2 places. So, I decided to call Tierrasanta Dental because they were so close to where I live and many of the reviews were also very good. Jessica answered the phone and was soooo helpful. She was very nice and professional. She had the answers to all my questions, followed through with exactly what she said she would do. When I went to my appointment, each person I met was friendly and professional. And Jessica remembered me from my phone conversation with her. Many reviews said that they didn’t run on time but I didn’t have to wait long at all to be seen. Many reviews said that they try and upsell you for lots of expensive upgrades. That did not happen to me at all. In fact, they were very conservative with their recommendations for me. (I was watching for the big push at the end of my visit to add extras on to the procedures and fees since so many of the negative reviews said that happened to them.) But, once again, Jessica explained what I would need to have done, what my cost options were, printed everything out for me to review, and let me leave to think about my options. There was no pressure at all. I left very happy with my experience. So, I decided to write this review to give some others perspective and put one in the plus column for this place. I will gladly go back to Tierrasanta dental for care and would recommend it to anyone.

Casey H. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Extremely friendly and welcoming office! Everyone was kind and made me feel comfortable during my appointment. It was very easy to understand my long term plan and to schedule out the next few appointments. Thank you for having payment options! Thank you Dr. Habashi, Renisha, Kristen, Touron, and everyone else! I’m sorry if I spelled your names wrong!

Dorothy B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Okay, wow. What a wondering experience I had today at Tierrasanta Dental Group! The experience was great from the beginning to end. Not only is the staff patient and kind, the environment was pleasant to be in. My last dentist office in Mission Valley was crap compared to this place. I value a good work environment and unlike my last dentist office, the staff here meshed well and obviously got along, which makes for a cohesive and more productive team where everyone is working together and not against each other. Scheduling was easy and when I got to the office, there was no paperwork, just a few things to fill out on their computer. I waited just a few minutes and was greeted by the doctor who spoke with me for a few minutes. The gal who did my xrays was super nice and incredibly fast/efficient. She really knows how to maneuver that xray machine and she doesn’t waste time. Three staff members complimented the status of my teeth, which is something I was never told at my last few dentists, where there was apparently always something wrong, bringing my out-of-pocket cost way up. My dentist, Dr. Hibashi was professional, charismatic, and very knowledgeable. He told me the “whys” behind any concern I had and didn’t push any unnecessary procedures. After he adjusted my crown, it was on to my teeth cleaning by Kelsey, who was extremely thorough and super sweet! I walked out with a really clean mouth and no out of pocket costs.I am so excited to have found these guys and you will be too! One suggestion I have, which is sooo minor is not have the news playing in the waiting room. It’s so negative and too political. Maybe the travel channel or food network?

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


My overall experience at Tierrasanta Dental Group was excellent! The front desk staff were very friendly and attentive as soon as I walked in the door. The office was very clean and spacious. I had Dentist Heather Preber and I highly recommend her. She was very caring, knowledgeable and thorough with my dental cleaning. And her assistant was also exceptional and really knowledgeable as well. I felt very welcomed and comfortable in this dentist office and they had cool new technologies that I had never seen before. It was easy to make my appointment and they brought me back on time and I had constant care the whole time of my visit. I don’t have dental insurance but they have a great deal at $59 for a Cleaning, Exam and Digital X-rays which I thought was a great deal. Thank you!

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


My husband and I have been coming here for over 7 years. We take pretty good care of our teeth so we haven’t had to have too much invasive work done. I see Dr. Habashi and he is super sweet and has a great personality. Darlene, the hygienist, is very kind and caring. Lois, the dental assistant is just an awesome lady! They really care about their patients and you can feel it. I used to hate going to the dentist and now going to the dentist is kind of like going to see good friends! It feels good having a dental team you can trust. We have been very happy with the service and care at Tierrasanta Dental.

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


I am completely happy with this dental office. Everyone is very friendly and very knowledgeable of thier policies. When ever I asked a question, they had the answer. I needed a lot of dental work so they developed a plan for me from “top priority to “second priority” and a plan that could work with my current financial situation. I had to see the oral surgeon first and he was amazing. He did his job so well that I felt no pain and he and his whole team were so comforting to me. They consistently asked and checked on my well being. I was in and out in less than an hour. My second visit I saw a contacted provider and had the same positive experience. I have one more appointment and I’m fine with that because I have complete confidence that everything will work out with no problems. This office is clearly managed and ran very well. My plan is to now use them as my permanent dental providers. A very accessable team of dentists, surgeon’s and office staff.

Desirae G. from Fletcher Hills, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to this dentist by a friend that told me how great this place was. Upon arrival the practice was clean and very comfortable along with being well pleasing to the eye and stocked with magazines along with water and a special game corner for kids! That’s great. I was promptly greeted by two very friendly and efficient receptionists who made me feel very welcome. My X-ray exam was EXTREMELY easy and in fact enjoyable which is rare for me since I am generally so afraid of dentists. Jeneva took such great care of me. She is amazing and knew exactly how to put me at ease! After the X-rays, I was lead to a room for my examination. It was quick, precise, and painless! I can’t wait to go back next week for my crown. Yes, I can’t wait! I have waited one year due to the fact that I am generally terrified of dentists but now I can finally get my crown! Yay Tierrasanta Dental Group! Your staff rocks.

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


I love how tech-savvy this office is.  Electronic sign-in, digital X-rays to reduce radiation, a staff that is friendly and knowledgable, and Dental Professionals who were totally sensitive to my various phobias at the Dentist’s Office.  I always feel a bit nervous at the Dentist, sometimes even a little grumpy, to be honest, and these people are always so friendly and comforting that it makes the experience pleasant in the end.  Thank you, Stonecrest Dental Group!

Lois J. from Mountain View, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)

I canceled my appointment with stonecrest dental yesterday, after calling tierrasanta dental across the road who was genuinely there for a Navy veteran in desperate need of a dentist’s help. Receptionists can make a difference, but customer service derives from the top. The quality of care I received by Dr Habashi and staff went beyond my expectations!

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


After 9 years of going to the same dentist and my insurance no longer being covered there, I chose to go to Tierrasanta Dental and I couldn’t be more pleased with my visit! The check-in was so quick and easy, and everyone was so nice at the front desk. Then as much as I hate getting x-rays done, Lois made the process so much more bearable! Probably one of the sweetest and most charismatic ladies I’ve talked to in a long time and I almost forgot we were sitting in the dentist office! Your team is lucky to have her. When they took me in to see Dr. Habashi, he was so nice and his sense of humor made the appointment go by in a breeze. He let me know I needed a deep cleaning, so I scheduled that right away. Two days later when I went in for my appointment, I definitely was nervous thinking about how painful it would be. Darlene was amazing and she was so careful and made me feel so comfortable through the process. I would recommend her to anyone needing a deep cleaning, especially knowing that my first one ever went so smoothly. My mouth feels so much cleaner and the fact that my gums don’t bleed when I brush them is amazing. I literally can’t stop talking about it because it’s a problem I’ve had for a while now! I’d recommend this office to anyone, they are wonderful!

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


I woke up with the most excruciating pain this morning and went to see my dentist for advise.  They were nice enough to see me without an appointment.  I had an emergency root canal and they treated me so well.  The assistant was the sweetest by giving me crackers, water and a warm blanket.  They made me feel at home while going through a bad time.  I truly appreciate them!!

Amy D. from Temecula, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a grey experience her. The doctor took me into her office before I even got dental radiographs I was amazed that was the first time I have ever been in a dentists office. I was actually amazed! The front staff was so helpful they called my insurance and handled everything I didn’t even have to give them the number. One of the dental X-ray machine wasnt working when I went In but that wasnt there fault, just happens. All the staff took a general interest in what I did as a profession and asked questions and ingaged in conversation with me throughout my apt. It was very nice experience. I also mentioned that I though my teeth were shifting around and I have mentioned this to a few dentist. Although my teeth are still fairly straight this dentist was the first to ever offer a referral to sleep in a retainer.

Amy L. from Mount Vernon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love my dentist office!!  I live in Chula Vista now, but nothing will stop me from returning to this office.  I know almost all the staff, and they have always been very helpful to me, they explain things, they are patient, and they are very kind.  I’m also a good patient, so it makes it easier for them to be so awesome =)  My dentist, Dr. Habashi, is also the most amazing dentist.. I never feel pain when he’s working his magic, and he’s very personable, supportive, and has great work ethic. I actually look forward to my dentist visits now, and I love to see all my favorite people there – which is EVERYONE!

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


Let me say that I’m not afraid of many things, but going to the dentist freaks me out. (I think it goes back to having braces and the sadist of an orthadontist I had at the time, but I digress) Anyway, the downside of being nervous over going to the dentist and having bad teeth is that when problems arise, I will put off getting it dealt with as long as possible which hurts no one but myself (both physically and financially). I had some serious issues going on this past summer which could no longer be ignored. As the Tierrasanta Dental Group office is something I see daily as I go to and from work, I decided to give them another shot (I had been to them about 5 years back to less than stellar results, but I’m pretty sure it was under different management back then). I was immediately impressed when I walked in. I was greated promptly and with kindness. One of the questions they ask is if dental procedures make you nervous, which I admitted to be true. They take that into consideration when dealing with you, which was really nice. I didn’t feel like I was being mocked or talked down to. Everyone I have been in contact with from the office staff to the hygenists to the Doctors have been nothing but kind, funny, patient and informative. I knew every step of the way what needed to be done, how it was going to be done and most importantly, how much this was going to cost me financially. Options were given and I was never made to feel pressure about chosing to more expensive/higher quality options. Bonus stars for Dr. Habashi and Lois – they really make the whole dental experience enjoyable (as much as a dental experience can be enjoyable lol)

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


As with most normal humans, I hate the dentist. However, Dr. Habashi and his team are second to none. Unfortunately I’ve had many dental issue over the years, and Dr. Habashi has always been there to help me through it. If at any point something went wrong with a crown, he’d fix it no questions. Just last week I went in for what I expected to be a root canal, but the specialist convinced me to wait for the pain to go away based on recent work on that part of the mouth, and it did! They are honest, hospitable and care about what they do. Thank you, Dr. Habashi and the entire Tierrasanta Dental Group team- stay awesome!

Kelsey H. from Mountain View, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this office! Entire staff is great and really care about their patients Oral health and comfort! From the front Kristen and Katie are always so sweet and welcoming! Lois the Dental Assistant is so sweet and genuinely cares, making sure I’m comfortable throughout my visit. I always look forward to seeing her! Jessica did a great job going Over my insurance and explaining my coverage. Jo the hygienist gave me an excellent & thorough cleaning!  Dr. Habashi is fantastic and always keeps the appointment light and comfortable with his sense of humor and metaphors. And Dr. Jami is very thorough and even caught a lesion on my dad’s X-ray that was previously missed by another dr.  I’ve met some truly great people at this office!

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


I consider myself very lucky in this situation but, I’m very thankful to have done my research and gave this place a try. I needed an immediate wisdom tooth extracted when the doc Tierrasanta Dental Group found out why I was in such excruciating pain all day. My dental insurance doesn’t start til Jan 1 and I’m limited on funds so they still had me in with a check up, X-rays, and an oral surgeon for the very next day!! Im lucky because the surgeon is only there twice a month and he just so happened to be available the very next day for me. I was approved for care credit and was able to get my surgery. I will most likely be back. Good location, clean, professional, and I really felt that the doctors, nurses, and receptionists all took my needs to account and really actually cared about my current state.

Lisa L. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


I wrote a review 2 years ago but wanted to update. This office continues to provide excellent care time after time. This is the longest my family has ever stuck with a dentist and it’s because of the friendly and caring staff. I had my exam and xrays and Lois is always upbeat, friendly and caring. Dr. Hibashi is a true professional that is genuine and caring and it means a lot when I don’t like going to the dentist as it is. I then went to my cleaning and Kelsey is by far the best hygienist I have ever gone to. So caring, gentle and informative. Took her time and made sure I was comfortable. I wanted to write another review that was current because often times in service you’ll have a good experience and then it goes downhill but Tierrasanta Dental is consistent and great. The front staff is also exceptional. Thanks for making the dentist visit a bit less painful!

Megan S. from Ramona, CA (Source: Yelp)


Words cannot express how grateful I am for this office. From the front office all the way to the back, they are all so kindhearted and genuine. Jessica in the front office is sweet and welcoming as soon as you walk in. Then there is Lois who is such an amazing dental assistant with the best personality and truly cares about her job and the people she is taking care of. Then of course Dr. Habashi who is very nice, efficient in his work and gets you out of there as soon as possible without making you feel rushed. (Let’s face it, no one really likes the dentist. lol)

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


So I went here yesterday for the first time and I don’t think I’ve ever had an experience at the dentist so pleasant as this. Everyone is so nice and organized! The people working there are professional but not robots. I hate going to a place where everyone seems to be reading from a grammatically correct, polite script. It tends to make me uncomfortable and sort of like I’m in a twilight zone where everyone is being fake. It isn’t like that here! They talk to you human to human and made me feel so much at ease. They truly try to get to know you and what you do for work and for fun and the wait wasn’t long at all. Robin is the only name I remember from the front desk but that is because she was so efficient with calling me on my appointments. Setting them up as well as calling me days before to make sure it still worked for me. Yesterday I went in for sinus surgery on BOTH sides of my mouth. I was so scared at first but Dr. Reyes was so down to earth and explained everything as he was doing the procedure. He even let me use a mirror to see what was going on. (I’m so curious like that.) Overall it was the best experience I’ve had at the dentist. Too bad this isn’t my main dentist and I only needed to go here for the surgery.

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


Considering I went in with 2 excruciating pain, my experience was phenomenal. From the moment I walked in, I was welcomed as if they’ve known me for years. The wait was short the office is beautiful and clean too! The young lady who took me back for X-rays was Lois. She was extremely friendly and made me feel extra comfortable ( I’m afraid of dentist) she was gentle and took into consideration that was in sever pain. Dr. Habashi greeted me during almost immediately while she was taking my X-rays. He’s so pleasant his bedside manner was so comforting and assured me everything was going to be ok!! I’m afraid of needles…Dr. Hibashis technique was exceptional I didn’t feel a thing when he was administering anesthesia I normally lose it in the chair with past experience and hold on for dear life however I was super relaxed and I feel most of the reason I wasn’t afraid was because I could tell how much this dentist loves what he does! I can’t wait to take my children in to meet our new family dentist!!! Thank you Tierrasanta Dental group I genuinely believe my fear of dentist is GONE!! Xoxo Elizabeth G

Daniel Y. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow – so many bad reviews, but I’ve been going here for years and have been very happy. I’m now following up on my 2/14/12 review of an extraction and bridge placement then in progress. Bottom line, my bridge feels solid as a rock and I’m a happy camper. The oral surgeon who extracted the root under a failed crown/cap was great – I didn’t even know he was done it was so painless. There was some trouble fitting temporaries, but I don’t think that is uncommon and the staff was responsive to my problems in that regard. I also felt the bridge was maybe to large when placed, but over time it seemed to settle in and it feels like a good fit. The staff if wonderful, with some small exceptions. Dr. Afshar has been fine with me, very personable and responsive. Fine chairside manner. I’m guessing she gets stressed out sometimes – who doesn’t? I’m guessing most of the negative reviews have to do with up-selling and some lapses by some staff. Yes, I’ve experienced this, but it happens everywhere, so I’ve been tolerant and rewarded with continuing good care and very good relations with staff. Really, I wish I weren’t brain dead with names, so I could name all the great staff. Since I don’t remember them all, I won’t mention any by name. But I’ll just say everyone who has treated me has been very sweet and friendly! Like any “professionally managed” health care practice, I do think there is a bit much pressure to do work, and there is so much room for judgment – conservative vs. aggressive approaches, etc. So be prepared to go some homework and be firm if you don’t want the recommended care. Just try and stay calm and be as respectful of them as you want them to be of you and I think you’ll have a good experience. I’ve had some truly unacceptable dental care at other offices and quit them, but I’ve been using TDG for years and continue to get my care there. BTW – i’m not giving five stars because they are perfect. With all the crappy reviews though, I really feel they deserve some serious credit for the care they have provided to me.

I live in Tierrasanta and I have been going to Tierrasanta Dental Group for quite some time now. I have had nothing but the HIGHEST standard of service and professionalism you could expect from any dental office. Throughout my years of experience with other dental groups all over the country, Dr. Habashi along with Char, Angela, Mona and the rest of Dr.Habashi’s team have treated me with amazing care, detailed attention and respect. The office is top notch and I have been continuously treated immediately and in a courteous and timely manner. I have always had a fear of dental work and have never felt as comfortable and at ease as Dr. Habashi makes me feel. I hope this review helps others who may be about to choose a dentist for any procedures. Sherri Cannizzaro

My many years of experience have taught me to treat my patients as if Im treating my immediate family. This philosophy has proven to develop a more comfortable and trusting relationship between the patient and dentist. I am comfortable and confident working with every personality regardless of age, fear level, or extent of treatment needed. I responded to an emergency call on a Friday evening from a patient of mine who had knocked out his two front teeth and lacerated his lip in a basketball game. These were teeth I had veneered years before. I was able to re-implant the teeth and suture the lacerations which resulted in complete healing. All this took place one week prior to his wedding. Dr. Habashi has been practicing dentistry since 1996 and is married with three children. In his spare time, he enjoys playing tennis, running, and hiking with his family.
