Client Testimonials

Just had my first visit with Dr. Dena and had the most amazing experience. Dr. Dena and his staff are truly first class and are extremely professional. During my exam, Dr. Dena quickly identified several areas that needed to be fixed then explained how he could remedy it all while ensuring that my insurance covered all the procedures. He even waived some of the costs since I was a new patient! The dental hygienist was super nice as well. All in all, if you need a new dentist, look no further. Dr. Dena is the dentist for you.

Tim Deering

We have been going to Dr. Dena since 2004! He has been taking care of my entire family for all of these years! Unfortunately we had to step away from this office for a couple of years due to a career change and as a result both of my teenagers ended up with a cavity! Now we are back in good hands again! Dr. Dena has a special talent,, he makes everything better and more beautiful! Both of my kids had cavities and both didn't know that Dr. Dena had given them injection for numbing. They didn't feel any pain or discomfort! We are so happy to be back in good hands and under care of someone who truly cares for his patients and pays close attention to making everything perfect! I'm now 44 and my teeth look better than they did in my 20s all thanks to him! I only trust Dr. Dena with our needs and so happy to be back here!! He is honest, talented, friendly and yet very professional and also graduated with a top 2% of his class! That alone tells me how well educated he is! Also a big thanks to his wonderful and knowledgable staff!!

Zahra Nowbahari

I usually don't go to dentists in Encinitas as it's a bit of a drive for me, but I went into San Diego Premier Dental group to fix a chipped tooth & I was incredibly pleased with the whole experience. The atmosphere was warm, the staff was friendly, & Dr. Dena is the real deal when it comes to Encinitas dentists. First of all, Dr. Dena was punctual. All other experiences I've had with dentists start with a 15 minute wait when I show up on time. Not this time. The minute I walked in I was greeted by the friendly staff & was brought to the room where I was greeted by Dr. Dena who made me feel at home. Dr. Dena thoroughly examined my chipped tooth & fixed it like it never even happened.

Dr. Dena & staff made my day. One this I can say about Dr. Dena is he really cares about his patients and tries to deliver the best possible experience you can have at a dentist office. I will definitely make the drive to San Diego Premier Dental Group for all my dental needs in the future from cleanings to teeth whitenings & more. Even if you live far from his office, it's worth the drive to experience the best dentist in Encinitas.

Dr. Dena does your cleaning himself, and he is the best, by far, that I have had. His cleanings are usually ​​​​​​​complete painless. The office is quiet and very well run.
