"We recently moved to Orange County, where we had the best dentist ever, so I was very nervous about trying someone new. I shouldn't have wasted my energy because this place was GREAT. From the time I walked in the door, they were friendly and helpful. The hygienists were very nice and were very sweet to my kids. Dr. Dabir took a lot of time to answer my questions, and showed me what was going on with my kids (literally - he has a cool camera that he can put in the kids' mouth). He was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We are almost to the point where my kids need an orthodontist and Dr. Dabir gave me some great practical advice on how to navigate the whole process. When I was leaving, the woman checking me out told me a lot about my insurance - which was great because I didn't know what my coverage was. They even recommended a dentist for me! I was really happy with our visit and highly recommend Dr. Dabir and his wonderful staff."
"After trying out three other pediatric dentists, this place is by far the best. Even though I only had an appointment for my five year old, they convinced my three year old and 22 month old they wanted to get their teeth checked as well. It was a positive experience for all, which is almost impossible with three little ones. From the receptionist to the dental hygienist to the dentist, all wonderfully positive and excellent with kids."
"The Best dentist EVER!"
"Sarah and Sophie LOVE Dr. Dabir and team. On the way to our last cleaning appointment they asked me to please drive faster so we could arrive sooner - that's what I call DENTIST LOVE! 🙂 Thanks to the team there who makes dental visits fun for kids."
"I just took my one year old here for the first time. The reception area has toys and two gaming consols for older children. Even a Kurig coffee maker with plenty of options for parents. Sold! Staff is very friendly and made my daughter feel welcome. The cleaning rooms are very bright and kid friendly- kid movies playing and stuffed animals for them to play with. Dr. Dabir was very friendly, and since my kid is only one, really just educated me on when to brush and how to care for her teeth. I am happy to have found this place and look forward to taking my daughter here for years to come."
"Extremely friendly staff. We just moved to CA and our kids were nervous about seeing a new dentist. They were put at ease immediately and their visits went so smoothly. Thank you so much for providing such wonderful care to my children."
"I have three young daughters who have been going here for almost two years now. We have had the best experience with Carlsbad Children's Dentistry! The office is extremely well-run and clean. Dr. Dabir and his entire staff are fantastic! They are so nice to the girls, and reward them for being in the "No Cavity Club." My daughters actually look forward to going to the dentist now, and care about fighting off cavities. It's amazing. I'd absolutely recommend this place to anyone with children."
"We moved to Oceanside four years ago, and I began taking the children to this dentist office on the advice of a neighbor. THIS PLACE IS GREAT, and not just for the upscale children's dentist office whistles and bangs. Dr. Dabir is very patient in explaining what needs to be done, and reviews preventive maintenance with both children and parents. Any questions I have on billing are patiently handled and investigated. For those reviewers complaining about cost, I'd like to introduce them to some of the more horse-trading dentist offices I've had to deal with in this area. Trust me when I say that these prices are reasonable, and unnecessary services are not pushed. My husband and I have both said we wished this office took adult patients. You can trust this office, pure and simple."
"Today was the 1st time we took our son Sean to you guys, and although I had already seen your high ratings, I was still blown away at experiencing how great your office is! Friendly smiles greeted us, we got some coffee (how cool is that?), kids checked out all the fun stuff, and I LOVE how fun the dentist & assistant made it (they even knew about Angry Birds since my son had a tattoo & you guys had the stickers!). The TV on the ceiling is a nice touch as well! The dentist himself was thorough in checking his teeth & explaining everything to us that we didn't even have questions afterwards. It was so much info that it really made the 1st dentist/office we went to look awful. I think it was that moment when my husband finally realized why we need a place like this that knows what they're doing, and most importantly, won't traumatize him. As the dentist spoke, I think it finally clicked to my husband why we need to be picky about who is his dentist, cause I was one of those kids who are STILL traumatized after what I experienced as a kid. I want my son to love the dentist. Lol - Everyone was great, organized (really, really organized & quick), and really made the visit fun. He was so scared at the previous dentist, so I sensed he was the tiniest bit anxious today, but that went away after the xrays. Wow! My boy loved his goody bag, and not long after we came home, he used the items and told me "Wasn't that dentist place so cool?" "Did you have a dentist like that?" (In my head I said nope, mine was scary & mean) Lol... So big thanks to all of you who are doing such a great job at making kids feel comfortable. Sean can't wait to go back!"
"This place puts the Child's comfort first- at all times. The office's energy is relaxed and happy as happy can get! Constant smiling faces of every employee makes you feel very welcomed! Entire staff is very knowledgeable & accommodating! State of the art equipment & with the latest and the greatest technology from receiving reminder texts to fixing a tooth ache."
"Love this office. Very clean and professional. All three of my kids love to go the see Dr Dabir and his friendly staff."
"I have a 2 and 4 year old...we have had an outstanding experience here. The assistants have been amazing with my kids and The Dr is awesome. He really took the time to address any questions or concerns. The staff is great!"
"Both of my kids were in yesterday for a cleaning and checkup. My 5 year old daughter asked this morning "are we going to the dentist again today?", I said "no, not today" ... she whined. The Dr and staff are very personable and the office environment is fun/kid friendly. My kids love going and we have been very happy with the work performed (exams and cleanings)."
"We love Carlsbad Children's Dentistry. I have been taking my 6 year old son there for two years (X-rays, check up and cleaning). I will be taking my 3 year old daughter there next week. The office is great for children. Everybody in the office is very nice and great with kids. My son loves to go there."
"Beth was awesome at holding our hand through insurance questions and pre-op. She was just so nice and always all smiles and reassuring! Shoshana (think that was her name) was professional and sweet. Dr. Dabir is just plain fantastic! My daughter was in no way scared as she went through each visit and finally surgery day at Children's. He even took the time to go to her level and dressed her little stuffed kangaroo as a patient so that she would see it had come out of surgery like a champ like her. So cute! He's always great. He takes as much time as needed to get questions answered and makes sure we feel safe and comfortable. I really love this dentist and highly recommend it. Update-after only a few weeks, my five year old, post op and pain free wants to become "a dentist" in her words. Incredible what an amazing impression they had with her!"
"I have 2 young children and have had nothing but positive experiences with Carlsbad Children's Dentistry. The office is clean and the staff have proven to be very patient with my young children, very knowledgeable and very professional."
"Great dentist for children! Great atmosphere, great staff, and everyone is very friendly. Dr. Dabir is great with my kids, he explains everything that he is doing so they feel safe and comfortable. Parents are able to stay in the room with your child to watch what is going on and ask any questions."
"All four of our children are patients of Carlsbad Children's Dentistry......I am so happy that we finally found an amazing dentist and office."
"This is by far the BEST Children's Dentistry in my area. Everyone at the office is very nice, polite and caring. They make the experience for children less scary and always give them a surprise at the end so the kids have something to look forward to. I've been taking my daughter to them since she was 1 (she's 4 now) and will continue to take her. It's about a 20 min drive for me, but it's totally worth it. Dr. Dabir is also very caring and professional. Highly recommended!"
"I love Dr. Dabir and the entire office staff! As a working Mom, it starts at the office and how friendly and easy to work with office with regard to scheduling is a deal breaker for me. Each time I call to schedule an appointment, they are always flexible. Once we're there, Dr. Dabir never makes me feel like the worst parent ever when my kids need to be reminded to floss or brush twice a day instead of just once=) He's personable and genuinely is interested in the kids health as well as their interests outside of the office. I love them so much that I'm holding on as long as possible despite having moved to Orange County and one of my kids having turned 18! They are awesome!"
"Dr. Dabir is wonderful with kids. We have been going there for 4 yrs and love it. The staff is caring and very helpful. Dr. Dabir explains to the kids exactly what he is going to do before he does it. He shows the kids their pictures of their teeth so they can see how they are growing and what to expect. You can get in usually on the same day if something happens at school (personal experience)."
"My son had 4 teeth dislocated and I took him to another dentist whom I was recommended to but boy was I sorely disappointed. They cared more about what my Insurance would or wouldn't pay for than helping my son. I left there disappointed and made an appt at Carlsbad Children's Dentistry, Dr. Dabir performed the oral surgery on my son himself at Children's Hospital and we have been going back since! That was 4 years ago and I ABSOLUTELY love the Dr and staff. My son did not want to go to the dentist when we started and now he looks forward to every visit because he knows they are gentle with him. They also reward kids for having NO cavities which I think is awesome!! He has got 2 shirts and 2 movie tickets for not having any cavities, I highly recommend Dr Dabir and his staff for your children's dental needs!!"
"The staff and Dentist here are amazing. My child had to have some pretty extensive work done and they were amazing. Their office is so kid friendly, my kids can't wait until it is time for them to go in for their cleanings."
"I can't recommend Dr. Dabir and his staff enough. My kids both love going to the dentist and I'm constantly impressed by their staff and how well the office runs. When your kids cheer the night before an appointment when you tell them where they're going, you know you've got something special."
"I was recommended carlsbad childrens dentistry by 2 friends. My daughter has now been a patient there for 2.5 yrs. We love it there! There is coffee machine for moms, & fun waiting room games! Except they are so fast, we never have to wait! She plays after her appt! Also, staff is super nice, they make you feel welcome & explain everything in detail. They all really put 100% into each patient. I am happy to have my daughter go there!"
"We received top notched care and service. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The dentist really knows how to put kids at ease. We were at a different dentist in La Costa when we first moved to the area. It was good, but I have to say that Carlsbad Children's Dentistry is GREAT! We love it and highly recommend it."
