Your staff is the most pleasant group of people I've ever worked with! Your front desk person is amazingly helpful. Your hygenist is so caring and smart and personable. I've been coming there for almost a year now and used to be afraid to go to the dentist. I don't worry anymore prior to my visits. Thank you for your loving care, your awareness and your connecting natures! By the way, my teeth are looking better and better!

I first came to Dr. Patel’s office the end of 2016 when I had a change in dental plans. I usually despaired going to the dentist, but everyone was so friendly, courteous, and had our best interests and care as their greatest concern. After a thorough examination with pictures and x-rays it was determined that even though I had been going regularly to the other dentist, that they had not taken good care of my teeth. Without any pressure on their part, we were able to make the best decision that it was necessary to have my upper six and lower six front teeth restored or redone. It was and has been incredible as I now have a beautiful smile that looks like my own teeth, with the exception that I now have straight teeth, a good bite, no jaw pain and no longer lisp (that had been a result of my prior dental work). It has been several months and I have adjusted to my “new smile” and it feels great and looks good. Plus I was able to get this all done the same day as Dr. Patel has the capability to make the replacement teeth right in the office. I thank Dr. Patel and everyone in his office.

I have been a patient at Pomerado Family Dental for about 3 yrs. Dr. Patel is a very talented dentist and does excellent work. He has always taken the time to inform me of the full range of treatment options available. A very professional, and considerate staff and assistants, and exceptionally good customer service. They make a genuine effort to ensure your visit as comfortable as possible. The office and treatment rooms are spotless clean and with latest technology.

Very,very good,I had the deep cleaning by Lupita and almost fell asleep in the chair she was so gentle. The entire office seems to be extremely friendly and professional. My wife and I have just switched from another dentist and can not be more pleased with Dr. Patel and Pomerado Family Dental Group in Poway. Robert & Petra

I am a new patient of Dr. Patel. When we initially met he was concerned with one of my teeth that was anchoring the bridge for my two top front teeth. I also explained that because the bridge teeth were not sharp I could not use them to bite through food. He said that since the bridge was about twenty years old that I should replace it. And that this was the only way to get to the tooth that concerned him. I was hesitant to do it at first but he convinced me that I should do it so that he could fix the tooth in question. Well, the results have been amazing. The new bridge looks 100% better than the old one. The color of the bridge teeth are spot on with my own teeth. In addition, the teeth on the new bridge are sharp and I can chew through food now. I am extremely happy with the results and so is my wife.

After reading ratings on the dentist my insurance assigned me I decided I needed a new dentist. I Google searched each dentist on my insurance plan. I chose Dr. Sarju Patel in part because of his location but mostly because of his client reviews. I have not been disappointed. Everyone in his office has been extremely friendly and helpful. I broke a tooth and needed to get in quickly before I went on vacation. They got me in quickly and were able to do my crown the same day! I'm a bit of a baby when it comes to dentistry work but can honestly say I never felt an ounce of pain. I'm glad I did my homework and found Dr Patel.

I've been treated by Dr. Patel and his staff for nearly 10 years. The staff is always very warm and friendly. This is a wonderful practice.

No one likes getting dental work done, especially me! I saw Dr. Patel today and had fillings done on two teeth. The numbing process and shots were a breeze!! Dr. Patel and his staff are amazing. I will definitely be going back and would recommend him to everyone. Thanks for the great experience!!

Due to an insurance change I had to switch dentists and chose Dr. Patel based on reviews. I could not be happier with the competence, attitude, and thoroughness of the staff. Most dentists flit in at the end and spend perhaps 3 minutes and then run off. Dr. Patel spent a good 20 or 25 minutes reviewing the xrays and photos along with a detailed visual inspection. It's so refreshing to have a dentist who actually spends time doing a detailed review of one's dental health. I found it immensely helpful. If you are not 100% satisfied with your current dentist I would highly recommend switching to Dr. Patel's office.

Dr. Patel and his staff are always friendly, welcoming and professional. They take the time to make sure that I'm comfortable and that I understand what they see in the x-rays and photos and any needed treatment and cost. They always take me in on time and don't make me feel rushed if I have questions. I don't have a lot of dental problems but have been pleased with the results of the treatments I have received. I would recommend Dr. Patel to anyone looking for a dentist.

I couldn't have been more impressed with Dr. Sarju Patel/Pomerado Family Dental. From the moment I walked through the door, I felt completely welcome and extremely comfortable.

I appreciate that dr. Patel considers my pocketbook and recommends what's only really necessary. Also tries to work with you and lets you make payments over a short period of time which really helps me out.

Dr. Patel's office is super friendly and caring. Dr Patel and his technicians are very gentle and do a marvelous job. I have been going to Pomerado Family Dental for over 10 years and have always been happy with my treatment My husband goes to them and so does my 7yr old granddaughter. They are very considerate of your pocketbook and try to help you with the financial end of their service. If you need a new dentist, give them a try. You'll be happy you did and you'll have a dentist for life.

Dr. Patel and the entire staff at Pomerado Family Dental are awesome! I always wondered why people have been afraid to go to the dentist. That's because they haven't gotten worked on by Dr. Patel and his assistant:) Routine cleanings are super gentle and don't leave your gums feeling ultra swollen/sore after the flossing portion, the office and rooms are kept immaculately clean, Dr. Patel is very thorough in explaining every procedure and Maria at the front desk is very friendly and super personable. I live in Normal Heights, now, but will continue to make the drive up to them for all of my dental needs. Thanks!

I had the same dentist for 35 years. When he retired, I had to find a new dentist which is extremely difficult. I went to a couple and all they told me was that my perfect teeth for 35 years all of a sudden needed a lot of work?? I don't think so!! I thankfully found Pomerado Family Dental and have been going there for the past 10 years. Dr Patel is very honest & gentle and his staff is very competent as well. Look him up on his website at pomeradofamilydental.com UPDATE-I went for an appointment today 4/10/14 and I failed to mention that Dr Patel keeps up with new technology. Today I had X-rays taken on a new machine which goes around your head while you stand still. No more painful bite wings or heavy probes in your mouth. Thank you Dr Patel.

Pomerado Family Dental is a small, cohesive practice run by one dentist, Dr. Patel. He is a kind, honest man that my family of 4 has gotten to know quite well in the 10 years that we have been his patients. He and his staff are thorough and gentle, and unlike practices my family had visited in the past, there is no hard sell of unnecessary services. His office is equipped with the latest technology and the care that we have received there has been outstanding. Maria, at the front desk, is a joy to deal with. Not only is she personable, she is also very capable. Insurance questions are answered promptly and efficiently. Our experiences with Pomerado Family Dental have only been positive.

Allow me to preface this review: prior to visiting Dr. Patel I hadn't been to the dentist in almost 8 years. I was NOT looking forward to the horrors that had occurred in my mouth in that time. I chose Dr. Patel because of his positive Yelp reviews and because he was accepted by my insurance. Upon my initial visit a few high-tech x-rays were taken and a couple of services were recommended, not a bad as I thought. My insurance was able to cover a good bit of it and the rest wasn't nearly as bad as I had planned for. My second visit went pretty smoothly, the front desk ladies got me checked in and as soon as the doctor was available we went right to it! I got numbed up and laid back to relax with a movie as the Doctor and Matt went to town scaling and crafting and installing a crown. The whole procedure was fairly painless and three hours flew by. We were joking and the mood was pretty light, which took a load off of my mind. Upon completion of the procedure, I was given information on additional recommended procedures and timelines, and I had everything arranged by the time I left the office. -If it's been a while since you've been to the dentist, go! -If you're not a huge fan of the dentist, use Dr. Patel! -If you want a painless procedure, use Dr. Patel! -If you want concise information on care of your teeth, use Dr. Patel! -If you're worried about costs, use Dr. Patel! Can't recommend these guys enough, the Yelp reviews are 100% accurate.

I switched from a dentist who only provides care for PPO patients because I'm retired. This dentist is simply the best I've ever been to, their equipment is state of the art, the staff is friendly, and their prices are excellent. Since I'm no longer covered by my employer I elected to use a dental plan rather than dental insurance, specifically Delta Dental's plan. For my family of three I pay $236/year. For this I get $10 xrays, $20 cleanings, and I paid $1205 for a crown and a filling replacement. These charges are set by Delta Dental, not the dentist, and they are reasonable yet other posters seem to think magic will happen for a relatively small investment in a dental plan. Dental plans are not insurance, they're merely agreed upon prices for procedures.

First time at this dental office. Looks like I found a great one. Shefali, the receptionist is so nice and accommodating. The dental technician was also. Dr. Patel is kind and caring. It is a beautiful office and very clean. I definitely recommend this office to anyone looking for a new Dentist.

This review is for my hygienist Lupita since I haven't actually had any dental work done yet. I have a pretty heavy fear of the dentist office I can't stand the sound of dental tools, scraping, buzzing ugh. My blood pressure goes up just thinking about the dentist. First off, this office had a calming feel. From the water feature in the lobby to the images on the monitor in the treatment room, every thing is well thought out to provide a relaxing environment. The staff is great, the cleaning experience was positive and I had to laugh at Lupita's instructions to "floss the teeth you want to keep." Needless to say, I have a new flossing regimen. I was referred here by a friend and I would definitely recommend them.

Okay, let me say first of all, I have severe dental phobia, and Dr. Patel was wonderful. He and his staff, not only squeezed me in for an emergency, but treated me with kindness, understanding, patience and were so gentle. This was one of the best dental experiences. I now have a new dentist!

Being bi-coastal, I had many options when it came to choosing a dentist, but I am so happy I chose Dr.Patel and his team! I had a substantial chip on my front tooth (of all places!!) so I was extremely nervous about getting it fixed, but it looks amazing now. No pain, no pressure and the color match is perfect! The office is also very clean (which is a huge deal to me), I just can't say enough about them.

Just had a very pleasant experience at this office yesterday. I got married a couple years ago and have been putting off finding a new dentist who accepts our new dental plan. I finally did some research and ended up calling this office. The receptionist was extremely helpful and kind, answered all of my questions, and made me feel comfortable. I brought to my exam my X-rays my sister (in a dental assisting program) had just taken a couple months ago and asked if they'd check to see if they could use them instead of taking all new X-rays. They were very accommodating and inputed my X-rays into their system without hesitation and didn't push to take more. I was very impressed by this because it seems like they easily could have said that the ones I have weren't good enough or that they needed additional ones just so they could charge me for X-rays, but they didn't. Dr. Patel came in promptly, introduced himself, and did my exam while letting me know exactly what he was doing/seeing, but not asking questions that I would have to answer with my mouth wide open, which I hate. Bonus points for that! He asked me a few questions afterward and didn't make me feel bad when I said I rarely floss. I didn't have any cavities, but he pointed out a couple old fillings that are corroding that I should consider replacing, but he wasn't pushy about it. The best part was that he said since we saved so much time by not doing X-rays that they could do my first cleaning right then if I wanted. Their hygienist was booked, but Dr. Patel was willing to do my cleaning himself, which was really nice. Overall, it was an easy and pleasant experience, which is more than you can usually say about a trip to the dentist. High recommend Dr. Patel and his staff!

I've gone through many dentist offices over the past decade and I can honestly say Dr. Patel and his staff are the most professional, reliable, and friendliest people I've ever encountered. The desk clerks are extremely helpful when it comes to accommodating to busy schedules and always do their best to make your experience as easy and simple as possible. This is a great place to bring the whole family! They make sure to give each and every one of their patients the upmost attention and respect. There are friendly faces all around and they are always looking to make your experience as relaxing and as enjoyable as possible. Going to the dentist has never been more fun! I really enjoy coming to this office and I look forward to future years here!

I spent 4 hours today with Dr. Patel and his staff for a lengthy procedure. Dr. Patel was kind, thorough, and very concerned with my comfort. The staff went out of their way to ensure that my experience was positive - providing a blanket, movie choices, filtered water, etc. The chair even had a built in massage! In addition to the attention to patient comfort, I am very pleased with the results. My teeth look great!

Pomerado Family Dental is by far my favorite place to go and get my teeth cleaned. All the other places that I've been to in the past are not friendly and I can't stand leaving the office needing to rinse out my mouth with water from the car. The Patel family is very caring and always asking if you are feeling ok and keep checking in with you during your visit. If you are looking for a place to make you smile and keep your teeth white, Call Sarah and Melissa at the front desk and they will be happy to make an appointment for you;)

Fantastic office! My husband and kids love Dr. Patel. We've had no complaints and we've been coming here for 5 years! It's a great office. They're friendly, easy-going, understanding and helpful. They explain everything well, offer flexible pricing options, and do quality cosmetic treatments. Our first visit came out of desperation. I needed a second opinion on my son's tooth. Dr. Baker, the pediatric dentist further down on Pomerado in Poway, had destroyed two of my son's teeth with a brutal filing that traumatized my son, a child who was already scared of the dentist before that nightmare. Dr. Patel heard me out as I shared the horror story and he took the time to explain how it all happened. He explained that the cavity my son had was small but it was inserted between the teeth. So, rather than drilling with some skill and finesse to minimize the damage done, Dr. Baker just drilled out half the tooth. It was sloppy and awful for a kid. I decided to let Dr. Patel take over from there until I could find another pediatric dentist, but when I told my kids I was looking, they both said they loved Dr. Patel and didn't want anyone else! Couldn't be more pleased!

This was my initial visit. I was met with a smile and a handshake. The staff is friendly, and efficient. Dr. Patel was very willing to answer my question on procedures, results of my exam, function/uses of the "tools" he used to accomplish my exam. I have a very comfortable feeling that I have made a good choice for my new dentist.
