“I wholehartedly recommend Dr. Hegde and her team. I’ve been their patient since 2011 when I moved to San Diego from Europe. I was a real “case” when I walked into their office for the first time and they got me fixed up to SoCal standards in four years. They always worked with me to schedule the urgent things when they were needed and to plan the rest so as to make the best use of my insurance and FSA budget.
Dr. Hegde just installed an implant to replace an eye-tooth I lost about 6 years back. It was a completely painless and smooth procedure, I didn’t even have to take a single pain killer after the procedure! Trust me, I had an implant surgery screwed up on me while I was living in France … the whole thing fell out about a month after the crown was placed and I ended up going to Switzerland to get it installed right the second time.
I never had a dentist whom I trusted and appreciated more than Dr. Hegde. “ – Matt T. (from Yelp)
“This review is well over due. I have been going to do Dr. Hegde’s office for my dental care for 12 years now. I have moved away from La Jolla area and I still drive the 45 minutes drive as I find her to be the best dentist in town. Her staff at the front is professional. Her hygienist Sheila is very friendly and knowledgable. She is caring and spends great deal of time with you if needed to make sure your teeth are sparkling clean before she lets you go. In addition Dr. Hegde’s work is excellent if you need dental work such as fillings; she is very meticulous and makes sure your bite is perfect after fillings. As a whole the entire staff seems to always focus on quality and not quantity. They provide each patient with outstanding personal care and don’t rush through patients. Lastly and I think this very important is that during my 12 year experience with this office I was never offered or pressured into unnecessary dental works, which I have seen often with other dentists; they are very honest and don’t try to run up your bill.” – Morgan N.

“Dr. Hegde is simply amazing! She is without a doubt excellent with her work and an absolutely brilliant person. Most people hate going to a dentist cause of the pain factor, but Hegde makes you feel comfortable and at home in the dental chair! She explains what she is doing as she works and is so easy to talk to even when your mouth is propped open like a jar.
I have zero complaints about this place – besides Dr. Hegde, the other staff is spot on, especially Jenny in the front office.
I have found the perfect dentist finally!” – Trupti K. (from Yelp)
“I pay out of pocket for my Dental work so I’m very picky when it comes to Dentists. My wife had been going here for years with good results so I finally decided to give them a try. I’m glad I did. The entire staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and their work is excellent. Dr. Hegde has both the technical skills and bedside manners that are required for a good Dentist. Assistant Betty (I think that’s her name) is very good too; it’s interesting watching them work. I also like that the practice uses the newest technology like digital X-rays; so much more convenient than the old film crap. All in all a great experience; I highly recommend Dr. Hegde and her practice.” – D.S. (from Yelp)
