La Jolla, CA
If you are looking for an awesome dentist in San Diego, this is your place! I had braces as a kid, and as a result of that experience, I've been the sort of person that generally avoided going to the dentist unless it was absolutely necessary. Vina changed that for me though. A visit to her office is more like visiting a really good friend than it is going to a dentist. She is very kind and you can tell that she really cares about her patients and their well being. They also use some state of the art equipment (like a computerized x-ray device) that I haven't seen before.
What amazed me most though was that I had a cleaning, two fillings, and a teeth whitening, and throughout the entire visit, I didn't feel a thing! It was the most pleasant dental experience that I've had in a very long time.
