    Take it from an individual who truly was petrified of going to the dentist – the staff at McBride’s will win you over quickly. I especially like the hygienist who does the cleanings and truly makes the client feel comfortable – both physically and mentally. I would not go anywhere else, my experiences have been superb.

    I have had so many dental and oral surgeries in the past and I’ve never taken the time to write a review on how great things went for a dental procedure. I had to have an implant giving Dr. McBride limited access because I can’t open my mouth wide. But he worked his magic and things turned out wonderful. I’m thrilled with the results! He and his entire staff treat you with such compassion, kindness and are very patient with you. I would refer him to anyone.

    I usually don’t write reviews however on this one I really have to take a few minutes if it will help someone make a decision regarding their teeth and really about health…. What I noticed right off the bat was that the staff was all on the same page, friendly, nice atmosphere and not over the top like most offices, so just easy, class and style for a dental practice. McBride looked you in the eyes when he spoke, and was very patient explaining what he could do along with his experience over time…. HONESTY, patience, and just really knowledgeable when it came to my needs on implants. McBride has ALL of the latest and greatest technology from crown makers to scanner x-ray machines! It’s been almost a month and the last few steaks have tasted sooooo good!! I am totally pleased with his work, his staff and finally have a dentist to leave a good review about!

  • Verified Patient
    My experience with Michael McBride DDS was excellent. I have had problems with my teeth for over 15 years and bad experiences with dentists. I was very nervous and embarrassed so I avoided going to the dentist. Had I known how kind McBride and his staff are I would have taken care of my dental problems long ago. They made me feel so comfortable. I will soon have a beautiful new smile, which will change my life, because of Michael McBride and his wonderful staff.

    I had a dental emergency just before Christmas and needed immediate attention, before I headed out of town for a couple of weeks. I knew my regular dentist wouldn’t be able to help, so I called around to dentists in the greater San Diego area that had labs on site. They all said they could help, but it would take two weeks, and a couple of thousand dollars. I then called McBride Dental, and they said to come in, and it would take a couple of hours. I was a little skeptical, but I went. Two hours, and two hundred dollars later, I was good to go. It made my vacation much more enjoyable. From the front office staff, to the dental technician, Dr. McBride, and the lab technicians, all were unbelievably fantastic. Five stars is just not enough to do them justice.
