This is such a wonderful place and the staff are so friendly. I took my 4 and 6 year old for a check up and it felt as if we were always patients there. I can't say enough great things about the staff and Dr Gamache. The facility was clean and very professional as well.

I am a physician that does not have much time and Dr. Gamache's staff facilitated a very quick check in, plowed through the insurance details without any stress, and I got an extremely thorough evaluation and treatment from Dr. Gamache! Not only did he spend a lot of time on my teeth, he explained everything he did very clearly. Because I'm getting married this weekend, he even gave me a complimentary teeth whitening treatment. I couldn't believe it. He is a sincerely nice person and you can tell by the way he treats his staff as well. I will definitely be referring my patients with dental problems to him in the future.

Dr Gamache and his team were great. I have my twin boys (4 years old) get their first checkup. His team encouraged to me to take pictures of their first visit and we got to take pictures of the X rays. It was neat to see how the adult teeth were growing in. The boys were thrilled to be there and are asking to go back. We love the hours they have available. I am able to run this errand without missing work hours. So our whole family with be switching.

Been with these guys for years, back to the days of Dr. First. They're very courteous and professional. Always a pleasure! Their staff is very personable and they always remember me. I appreciate most the fact that they aren't crazy about upselling services, they let you know what they have, and leave it at that. They also work great with billing and insurance issues, they're always willing to work with me. Excellent dentist!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience! I am not surprised to see great reviews posted here for Dr Gamache. I am very grateful for ending up being seen today by Dr Gamache due to a mistake made by a different dentist in the same building. Not only my problem was solved and my front tooth is pretty, but I also got the chance to meet the most amazing staff ever- every single person seems to know what they're doing and they are super super nice! I am very impressed with the quality of work that was done - the doctor is excellent! Thank you again!

After a vey tedious search on Yelp I finally found a dentist that the reviews we great and not nightmares! It took me 15 different searches! So I thought why not give them a try at a teeth cleaning. My back story is that my insurance changed a month ago making my regular hygentist and dentist or over 17 years $200 for a cleaning. I needed to find a trustworthy dentist that was in network. This was heart breaking because I've been with my other office for over 17 years. That's what made this search even more stressful. The receptionist was very friendly, knowledgable and called back with confirmation that my insurance covered them right away. The hygentist Rachel was very gentle, knowledgeable, and very through. Everything you need and want in a hygentist. The doctor was friendly, smart, and also very through. My teeth were wonderfully clean, not one complaint here! After feeling so comfortable from my cleaning I went ahead and took their advice at getting my filling done. For not having a filling done in over four years I was very nervous having a new doctor do it. They make you feel so comfortable even giving you headphones to listen to. No filling is pleasurable of course, but the filling is the perfect color match, shape, and fits my bite perfectly. I highly recommend coming here as I just think I found my new dentist and team.

I recently moved to San Diego and finding a good dentist is very important for me. I have had a lot of dental work done over the years and in the process I have learned what to look for in a good dentist. Dr Gamache and his team are great! They have the latest technologies, and his dental hygienist was excellent. Since you see and spend more time with the hygienist than the doctor, the hygienist is equally important when choosing a dentist. My teeth are super clean and she was really nice! She didn't give me a hard time for not flossing all the time. Instead, she gave me suggestions on other ways to clean my gums that may work better for me. Dr Gamache paid close attention to details, and was very knowledgeable. He didn't seem to miss a thing.

Dr. Gamache and his team are great. I had broken a crown and had an important work event the following morning. They opened up an hour early to fix my tooth and I was able to attend my work event on time. Dr. Gamache takes his time to make sure that the work is done perfectly. Everyone that works there are friendly and professional. I recommend Dr Gamache to all my friends, coworkers and family.

I was referred to Dr. Gamache by a coworker. I had been going to another dentist in San Diego but hated going to that office because it felt very cold and unfriendly and you never got the same hygienist. On top of it, they were very rough. However, Dr. Gamache and his staff are a refreshing change. They are punctual, professional, and friendly. They explain my insurance and dental options thoroughly and are so accommodating with my schedule. His whole team is careful and gentle, and this week I had to get 3 crowns on top of fillings, and I had no problems whatsoever (no pain or soreness). He can make your crown in the office, avoiding a secondary appointment. I have nothing but good things to say about this practice and the people that work there!

Dr. Gamche is a very caring and fastidious dentist. He made me a great crown right in his office. I only had to wait one hour for it. He did a superb job of fitting it. He also filled a cavity and it was simple and pain free. His fees were very reasonable. I highly recommend Dr. Gamache.
