Best experience getting my cavity filled ever! I've been to a lot of dentists in San Diego, but none make their patients more comfortable or do more careful and precise work than Celebrity Smile. I feel like I am in excellent hands here; love the dentist, the assistant, the hygienist, everyone here is 5 stars!
