Let's be honest, NO ONE likes to go to the Dentist. And I tend to be a "difficult," patient because I am so terrified of having dental work done. Dr. Safar is one of the most amazing Doctors I have. I am currently disabled and suffering from a laundry list of medical problems that have also greatly effected my teeth negatively, ao long story short I need a LOT of work. What I adore about Dr. Safar is that she is not only knowledgeable, and incredibly good at what she does, but also because she treats me like a human being, truly cares about my fears and does everything in her power to make sure I'm comfortable and in good hands. Unlike other Dentists, she keeps in contact with my other Doctors to see if there is any connection between my health problems and dental issues.
Her techs and front desk staff are friendly, efficient and go above and beyond to make my experience there as pleasant as possible, from the actual procedures, billing and appointments.
Her new receptionist Kerry is a "breath of fresh air," compared to the previous receptionist. BEYOND friendly, warm, professional and will stop and take all the time she needs to explain dental procedures, billing, etc.
What I love about this practice is they truly care about their patients well being, safety, comfort and concerns. From the moment you walk in your treated respectfully and if your a "regular," like me, genuinely excited to see you....and I can be a real pain in the a**! There is no fakeness or forced professionalism, the entire staff are amazing wonderful and friendly people. The techs explain everything their doing in terms you can understand and when Dr. Safar enters the room her first priority is that you feel comfortable and relaxed. I personally have to do sedation everytime I have work done and am always at ease, with cool technology like glasses you wear during a procedure that allow you to watch Netflix movies. As I said before everything is done for your comfort and to put you at ease.
Dr. Safar also has an amazing bed side manner and is quite hysterical and incredibly friendly that I just absolutely adore her, and trust me I see my share of Doctors on a weekly basis and for as competent, professional and talented as she is, she's also one amazing human being.
Their prices are extremely reasonable and always explained in advance before any procedures are done.
Like I said, no one likes to go to the Dentist, but if you need dental work in the San Diego Coastal Area/around Carmel Valley this is the place to go! Especially for patients like me that need a little extra special care. This Dentist and all her staff will go above and beyond for you every single time and never act put out or annoyed by special needs patients like myself.
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Safar and all the staff at Celebrity Smiles to anyone; friends, family and strangers that need any type of dental work. I speak from first hand experience and if I can feel comfortable, relaxed and safe in a dental chair, then they are definitely doing something right.
Thank You to Dr. Safar and her amazing team for always making me feel so comfortable and that my concerns are their concerns. You continue to go out of your way for me on every visit and I know I have nothing to fear when I walk through the doors of your office. I could NEVER express my gratitude and how much I appreciate ALL of you putting up with me and my irrational fears of Dentistry. You are all amazing professionals and people.....thank you!!
