I enjoy going to the dentist!  The staff and Dr. Schmidt, and the hygienist Gala are amazing.

Dr. Schmidt has been my dentist for 20 years and he is an excellent dentist. There are dentists closer to my home, but I travel 80 miles round trip to see Dr. Schmidt, and Noah the dental hygenist, because of the great care I receive. I highly recommend this dental office.
More
Our family has been going to Dr. Schmidt's for many years now. We started out with him at his office in San Diego. We now travel from San Diego to their newest location for all of our dental needs. The entire office is extremely professional and very accommodating. We could find another dentist closer to home, but when you find a dentist, hygenists and root canal specialists, why change when you have the best! Our family definitely recommends El Camino Dental Arts.

Thank you Dr. Schmidt for taking such good care of me today. I had a little bit of the jitters about getting dental work done but I was at peace the whole time. I was so relaxed that I almost fell asleep. Thank you for your awesome bed/chair side manner, the jokes and making my experience a nice one. You and your assistant Mary were amazing. Nice office, always pleasant front office receptionist and overall lovely visit. I will be bringing my family and referring friends. Please come see Dr. Schmidt and his staff you will not be disappointed.

You know you're in the right place when the dentist, dental assistant, hygienist, and office staff are all welcoming and professional. I told Dr. Schmidt I'd rather try a day in jail than go to the dentist. He made it his priority to make my visits as peaceful and painless. I hid from dentistry for many times in my life but I won't hide from Dr. Schmidt.

If you HATE going to the dentist, maybe you have had bad experiences in the past, then this is the dentist you need in your life.  Dr. Schmidt and staff go above and beyond to relieve your  anxiety so you can get the work you need completed.  My insurance didn't cover this doctor so I paid cash out of my own pocket so I could see this dentist. He is someone who listens, cares and does what he can to make your visit as pleasant as possible.  The office is nice and new, I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes and I am in and out of there ASAP.  Stop dreading the dentist... Go see Dr. Schmidt.  You won't be sorry.

Love Dr Schmidt and everyone that works there. They make you feel comfortable and at ease. Which is hard to achieve in a dentist chair!

This has been my Delta Dental orthodontist for more than ten years. They used to be at the Oceanside mall off Vista Way. However they moved their office off Hwy 78 in Vista and I followed them because they are the best! Love my hygienist Gala, who is so gentle and accurate. My dentist Dr. Schmidt is an angel! This dental office only focuses on my needs and doesn't try to push any unneeded services. My Delta Premiere covers most if not all of the necessary dental services I need and have no complaints at all. I've tried a plethora of orthodontic establishments in San Diego, and this office works for me. The staff is genuine and frankly I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

I highly recommend this practice to everyone I know. I had become a bit phobic about dental work after I experienced something traumatic. I shared my concerns with the dentists/staff and they have not only accommodated my concerns, they have gained my trust and loyalty. I’ve had many procedures and orthodontia at 50+ with this practice. They are all very capable, professional and understanding.
More
From the beginning, my experience at El Camino Dental Arts has been extremely rewarding. I am a Veteran of the U. S Army and was referred to Dr Schmidt’s Office via the VA System. The professionalism displayed at Dr Schmidt’s Office from reception to the chair is a testimonial to their caring and dedication. Many thanks for your Service. AATW.

I hate the dentist and I always have, until now. Luckily, the entire staff is super nice and sensitive to the fact that not everyone is a fan of getting their mouths drilled. The doc himself is really kind and I've seen/heard him interact with kids and he does a great job with them too. He put me at ease because he explained exactly what he was doing before he did it, so I know what to expect. I needed my first cavity filled and honestly I'm so glad i had that experience here, I wasn't made to feel ridiculous when i was scared and they did a great job listening to my concerns. Their dental hygienist is also so nice, I needed a deep clean (about a 2 hour procedure) and the ease of conversation really helps to make that time go by quickly. I'd highly recommend trying El Camino Dental Arts if you're in the market for a new dentist.

Amazing dentists and staff we’ve been coming here for 12 years now started off military and now civilian and they have always treated us as family. We drive out from Fallbrook to have our dental taken care of. Having a big family we have had a little of everything done general dentistry, orthodontics, periodontal. I love the fact that we can get it all taken care of in one place. We always see the same dentist Dr.Schmidt is beyond amazing!! The front office is very knowledgeable when it comes to insurance.

Been going to El Camino Dental Arts for years. Always pleased with their services and pleasant staff.
More
Dr. Schmidt and staff came to me through a recommendation.  I've always had fear of dentists, but now  I am happy with my visits.  They make me feel comfortable and important.  They are gentle and kind.  Every step is explained in their procedures.  I've had implant surgery with them. They are professional and provided every detail necessary.  My smile is brighter and happier.  You need a dentist or implant specialist? This is the place to go!  I've also referred an acquaintance to them and she is very happy with them!

I actually enjoyed going to the dentist to see Dr. Schmidt. I'm a disabled Vietnam veteran and I needed 7 implants and a bridge. The surgery to prepare for the implants was performed by Dr. Anna Hsu. She was very skilled, caring and professional while doing a great job. Then it was back to Dr. Schmidt for the implants and crowns. He too is very skilled, very professional while friendly and caring at the same time. In short Dr. Schmidt is a terrific dentist who did a fine job.The staff too is terrific. Lisa, Kelly and Cindy Stanford who submitted my case to the Veterans Administration for approval. Dr. Schmidt's assistant Bee was excellent as was Lisa, Dr. Hsu's assistant.The entire experience at El Camino Dental Arts which lasted over a year for the complete implants procedure was a huge success in every way.One last note is that the facility itself is impressively clean and the equipment up to date. I look forward to my follow up visits and cleanings.

I started using Dr. Schmidt's services after being referred by the Department of Veterans Affairs. I have had many dentists over my lifetime and I am very pleased with the care provided by Erich S. Schmidt, D.D.S. and Associates of El Camino Dental Arts. Excellent care for my bridge work, crowns, sleep guard, and deep cleaning. Very efficient and friendly staff for scheduling my appointments, submitting my VA paperwork, submitting prescriptions, and more. Very military and veteran friendly. Dr. Schmidt himself is a military veteran. Highly recommend dental care provided by Dr. Schmidt and his associate.
More
My family has been going to El Camino Dental Arts/Dr. Schmidt for many years. He and his staff are very professional, thorough, pleasant, and very caring. The office and rooms are always clean, bright and comfortable. We have always had positive experiences without any hidden surprises.

New crowns are perfect! I am a dental hygienist retired, and have had several crowns done by other dentists, but none are as well done as the ones Dr. Schmidt did for me. I wish I could have had him do all of my prior dental work. Please consider Dr. Scmidt if you want the best care and done right for a fair price.

Dr. Schmidt and his staff provide top notch dental care. We saw several dentists with our kids before finding Dr. Schmidt’s group. We were not satisfied with the level of care elsewhere. The front office staff is easy to work with, the hygienists do great cleanings, and the new office is amazing. If you want honest dental work for the whole family, look no further than El Camino Dental Arts. **And they are also open on select Sundays.**

First-time patient. The office is very clean and modern. The staff was very friendly, professional, and thorough. Gala took great care of me and I will be going back to see her!
More
Love it here! The staff is super friendly and very professional and the office is always clean. My cleanings are VERY thorough and I always leave feeling like I have a new set of chompers ;) I’ve never had a problem with any of the dental work performed here, Dr. Schmidt is the best! We moved to Texas in 2010 but continue coming here, scheduling our appointments alongside our family visits, it’s a win-win!
More
I have been a patient of Dr Schmidt since he purchased the practice from Dr. Stanford.  I have always been very happy with the professionalism and the friendliness of the staff and Dr Schmidt.  Todays visit was no different.  I had two fillings replaced was surprised to discover that my front tooth which I had chipped in a fall 2 years ago only needed a filling and I did not need a crown!  I had put off going to see the dentist because I really felt I would need a crown and was concerned about the price.  My thanks to everyone and I recommend Dr Schmidt highly.
More
I've been going to El Camino Dental Arts for a little over 6 years now and long before they moved to this new location and let me just start by saying this dental office is a true class act! Prior to finding them I had been to many dentists and carried along some pretty deep anxiety related to bad experiences at other dentists. After my first visit to ECDA, I knew this dentist was different by taking the time to make sure I was cared for to the highest standards. Their ability to put patient care/comfort first has led me to look forward to dental visits rather than dread them. Unfortunately, I now dread the day I may move from the area and be forced to find a new dentist.
More
We have been going here for about 9 years. And have always been very happy with everyone in the office. Absolute best dentist office.
More
Top notch customer service at every level from check in process to a very professional bedside manner and quality care. Dr Schmidt is the very best and I would never go to any other dentist. Highly recommended.
More
Excellent service and experience, very professional would highly recommend, my family has been coming here for years ! Gaila is the best hygienist! Thanks Dr. Schmidt!
More
My husband and I have been patients for many years.  Everyone in this office is very professional and the Doctors are gentle and are the best of the best!  We have had some dental surgeries, cleanings, ect. (many different dental services done) and there has never been any problems!  I give many kudos to El Camino Dental Arts and we couldn't imagine going anywhere else!
More
Best dental practice I've ever been to! I'm a customer for life. Gala is the greatest hygienist, the front desk staff is great (thumbs up to Lisa and Cindy S.) and Dr. Schmidt is such a great dentist.
More
Such a pleasurable experience, EVERYTIME!!! I absolutely have going to the dentist, BUT..from the moment I walk in I am made to feel like I am family. I have been getting my teeth cleaned here for years!! My husband recently had to get a root canal, and he said it was virtually painless!The facility is always impeccably clean, the staff is hands down the most friendly and knowledgeable, the dentist, Dr. Schmidt,  is beyond THE BEST in the biz! Thank you for keeping my family’s teeth soo beautiful and healthy!
More
Superb dental office, for 6 years me and my family have called Dr. Schmidt our dentist, it's your one stop dental office for all your dental needs.
More
Dr Erich Schmidt and crew are the best.  Been having my teeth taken care of here regularly for the past 10 years. They moved to Vista office from O'side - last place was more convenient for me. However, hard to follow them to the new place because... well, heck I'm sticking with the best DDS and crew. Absolutely enjoy my bi- annual cleaning with Gala, and the scheduling and front desk staff are just absolutely stellar. I'm never charged more for services that are not needed or are not covered ny my insurance... plus, absolutely love grooving to the piped music while my teeth are being cared for. Bottom line: I trust the staff and like the price.
More
I went in today and started my crown process. I have never experienced this before and they all made me feel so comfortable and made sure I stayed comfortable the entire time. I love the atmosphere and feeling so welcome in the office. I love that I didn’t feel like just another patient. They answered all my questions. Did not rush with me at all. Wonderful staff and amazing doctor!
More
This is a fantastic Dental Group.  I recently had to have a molar pulled because it could not be saved by a root canal.  I was very worried about the process since this molar's root was very problematic.  Dr. Hsu did an amazing job and I experienced ZERO pain and the process took less that 10 mins.  I was blown away.  I will be proceeding with a dental implant and I am now confident that the process will be painless and effective.  The office staff is also amazing, Lisa & Cindy two of their office staff were also very helpful and very caring.   Dr. Schmidt is my regular dentist and I have been going to him for over 7 years.  Great group of professionals !
More
Absolutely highly recomended! I broke a tooth and had to have it extracted and was taken care of in the quickest manner. Everyone there was very friendly and pleasant and will definitely only use them for all my dental needs. Thank you so much
More
I have been a long time patient of Dr Schmidt and his associates but I wanted to leave a review about my visit, today. I'm very afraid of dental work. It's not uncommon for me to break into tears from just getting a couple injections. I am so appreciative of the way Dr Schmidt is so painless and gentle while doing his work. I drive twenty miles to use his office and will not go anywhere else because I trust him and his staff. If you are squeamish or afraid of dentists, I can highly recommend El Camino Dental Arts, as they cater to cowards like me. Thanks Dr Schmidt!

Words cannot describe how much I love this dentist office and the staff. I'm absolutely petrified of the dentist, before I found this place I would lay in bed almost in tears thinking about even going to the dentist. I would have rather dealt with the pain than go see a dentist. My first experience at this office was a root canal on a cavity that I had let go for so long because of my fear. This was my first cavity as well so I was even more terrified. I can't even put into words how my experience went, except it was more than perfect. I would even do it AGAIN after the experience I had. Everything I've had done at this dentist office has been an amazing experience, from getting a cleaning to cavities filled. Everyone who works here is amazing, especially Dr Schmidt who is always so nice and makes you feel so at ease, like you've known him your whole life. 500/10 I would recommend this dentist to anyone!
More
I went here about a month ago and met with Dr. S. He was very nice and not pushy !!! I know I need a lot of dental work done Dr.S didn't make me feel bad about it. He went over the things I needed done and we talked about different options.  I came back to get 3 teeth pulled including one wisdom tooth. Dr.N actually pulled my teeth. I told all my friends and family about this place. The inside is nice, the employees are nice  the procedures are pain free

I am an adult who has a fear of the dentist, I always get anxiety beforehand but I cracked a tooth and started having some major tooth pain yesterday, did some research and saw on every platform the perfect 5 star reviews. Called, made an appointment- the front desk person was so kind and understanding on the phone and got me an appointment today! Came in after spending 5 minutes in my car trying to calm myself down enough to go inside and I'm so glad I did! I had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Schmidt and Mary! 100% would recommend them to anyone! Very easy and they were so understanding about my fears and made sure to numb me extra good. Already made my next appointment!

We first started seeing Dr. Schmidt when we moved to the area in 2008.  My daughter was 9 at the time and was afraid of dentists due to some previous work done on her.  She loved Dr. Schmidt though.  Almost 10 years later, we are still happy with everyone in the office.

Dr. Schmidt himself is a military veteran. Highly recommend dental care provided by Dr. Schmidt and his associates.

Dr. Schmidt and his entire staff were amazing. His wife is actually one of the hygienist there. I learned this during one of my cleanings with her which if it weren't for her flossing my teeth I would have thought we were friends chatting over margaritas. She even went over what I was doing wrong when brushing and explained how to prevent myself from further messing up my teeth. No other hygienist has ever gone out of their way to explain things to me other than the routine clean and remind me to floss. I really appreciated her extra efforts and knowledge.Just sitting in the waiting room I saw multiple regulars coming in and leaving. Most an older bunch that seemed to use their visit as a social hour as well. You could tell that the staff really enjoy their jobs and enjoy connecting with each customer that comes in. After a horrific experience at a place off mission and el Camino .... I was excited to be referred to this place but was also sad that I had to move out of city and now on my search for a new dentist. I don't know what's worse.... finding a new hair stylist or dentist....
More
I am so happy I found Dr. Schmidt! My mom and I have had the hardest time finding a good and honest dentist who doesn't want to perform a bunch of unnecessary procedures just to charge you extra money. My mom saw Dr. Schmidt a few months ago and literally told me he was "her dentist from god" so when my one year old fell and injured his gums I took him straight to El Camino Dental Arts. Everyone from the woman who answered the phone, the people working the front desk, and the dentist were so sensitive to me and my son. Dr. Schmidt took his time to hear and answer all of my questions thoroughly and didn't make me feel rushed or like how many health professionals do: like an overly worried mom. I will definitely be taking my son here for his future dental cleanings/needs and recommending this office to friends and family!
More
I've been coming here for a while now, and this is the only dentist in my entire life I've regularly booked my next appointment before i leave.  I've had negative experiences with other dentists in the past.  That just doesn't happen here.   Ask for Jen for your hygienist.  She's friendly, and does a thorough job - each time explaining what was good, what could be improved and sends you on your way with a smile.
More
El Camino Dental Arts is the place for your dental/oral health! Dr. Schmidt and his lovely staff are absolutely the best. Everyone here is welcoming and helpful. I started going here since last year and will continue to do so. You can tell that they all really care about your needs. I drive two hours just to be seem by them; best dental office, hands down!
More
I could go on and on how great this dental office is... The staff and the doctors are all super! They are the longest I have ever stayed with one dentist; that's how much I like them. I'd drive out of my way to visit them for all my dental needs. Dr. Schmidt is one my favorite people. I really like his confidence and manner. I feel like I am in the hands of friends. It can't get any better then El Camino Dental Arts ("Arts" is a apted description). I will be, and am, a lifetime patient. Thank you ECDA!
More
We love this place. Especially the assistants who make going to a dentist so much fun.
More
I don't know anybody that actually likes going to the dentist, but Dr. Schmidt and his team are such a lovely group of people, that I actually do! Gala is always very friendly and sweet. I can talk to her (when her fingers aren't in my mouth) freely and feel very comfortable with her. She is also very honest about giving advice when asked about certain dental hygiene/care. She won't try to sell the most expensive anything, but lets you know your options.I always enjoy coming in and seeing her. I look forward to the next cleaning in 6 months! Thank you again:)
More
Super welcoming and professional. I get my cleaning here and they always do a thorough job. They are very busy so plan to set an appointment about a month away!
More
I decided to finally get in to see a dentist and I will be honest and say I chose Dr. Schmidt's office due to its close proximity to Michaels Arts and Craft store.  I joked that I would base my Yelp review on whether the walk to Michaels was pleasant. I was surprised to see however, that Dr. Schmidt and his whole staff were so kind and welcoming. I did have to return for a second visit shortly after in order to have a cavity filled and he had me in and out of the chair in record time  I had no pain, discomfort, or other issues while there. It has been about 2 weeks since my visit and the tooth is good still!  So yeah he does know his dental work .  Haha. I'm grateful for the way he and his staff explain all they are doing or see. They do it in such a way as to involve you, the patient, with what's going on. I will recommend Dr. Schmidt time and time again. Thank you guys for being so amazing. Oh and that walk to Michaels?  If you can look both ways to cross the street, it's pretty pleasant. Blessings, Julie

I lost a tooth a few weeks ago in the middle of the night.  The next morning I drove to Oceanview Dental, & took me in right away. The staff is very friendly. Dr. Christina Linn was.my dentist. She was very gentle & made me feel very comfortable. She wanted to be sure I was feeling well. I rate them as a 10 plus. Actually going to Oceanview Dental was a very pleasant experience.
More
Dr Schmidt and his staff are amazing! I have really bad anxiety when I go to the dentist, but Dr Schmidt and his staff are very compassionate and patient with me. They care about me, the patient, and that means it to me. Give his office a try. You won't be disappointed.
More
I have the worst anxiety when it comes to the dentist but when I went here my experience was amazing. Dr. Schmidt explained everything throughly..he even offered a trial of laughing gas for my cleaning. a couple days later I returned for a couple of fillings and it was a breeze! if you fear the dentist this is the place to go. from the receptionist to the dentist and assistants I had an amazing experience!
More
Dr. Schmidt & his team were wonderful last week when my 7 year old son broke his 2 permanant front teeth!!!He was not even a current patient (my husband and his brother are patients) but not him (he is now).They took him the same day we called!  Dr. Schmidt did an amazing job.  My son is repaired and looking great.  I would reccomend this dentist to ALL!  They were very friendly and gentle.  We had a great experience.Thank you for your hard work!
More
So far so great.  They don't pressure you into doing things you don't need.  They seem to really just care about the Health of your teeth and gums.  Billing has been clear.  No surprises.

Had my first visit today. Exam and cleaning. This was the best dental experience of my life. I'm no stranger to the chair. I've had many cavities, I've had fillings, root canals, surgeries, the list goes on. Before today I hadn't been to the dentist for about 2years because I moved a lot. Turns out I have some cavities but this was the first time that I didn't feel like someone was telling me "shame on you for not taking better care of your teeth." Instead Dr. Schmidt told me that part of the reason I've been so popular at the dentist is just how my teeth grew in and that it's not all my fault. That was HUGE for me. I left today feeling optimistic and I felt like they had my back. Everyone was super friendly and nice. Everything was very clean and the office smelled nice. I've never felt as good at the dentist than how I felt today. For once I felt supported instead of feeling like crap. I'm excited to get my teeth taken care of.
More
I called this location today explaining to them that my daughter fell and chipped her tooth and that i needed help quick before she went to work in a few hrsWell low and behold they came through on such a short notice and fixed her all up.Thank you so much !
More
I love this dentist. The team is awesome. I got my braces on last year and got them off today. The whole experience great. They really helped me with my issues and worked with me on payment options. Which made the situation less stressful and 1 year later everything is paid off interest free. Definetly would recommend them to anyone.
More
Dr Schmidt and his team are absolutely AWESOME. Professional and down to earth kind of people. I've been going here for not too long however I've had a root canal and a dental cleaning done. I'm waiting on my crown to come in as we speak. I was comfortable every time I went in. There have even been a few emergency visits I've had prior and after my root canal and they were very helpful and understanding. Dr L (root canal specialist) offered me her personal number in case if I was in any discomfort after my root canal. I didn't have to use it but it was a great reassurance! I had my teeth cleaned today by Gala and she was probably the best I've ever had clean my teeth! She was precise, gentle and very sweet! I highly recommend her if you want a pearly white 5 star cleaning :-) Dr. Schmidt is awesome. He is a well rounded professional and he has military background so you KNOW if you're family is based near by you're in good hands. He gets kudos too for his education at U DUB. If you're from Washington, you KNOW the best education you can get is at U Dub. I'm from Washington and I felt more at home having him as my doc! Also, they accept care credit and you can sign up there for affordable services, Dr Schmidt's office will pay the interest for the 1st year you have care credit just pay the min amount and don't miss a payment! BTW they're open on the weekends too! I'm a student married to the military. Need I say more how lucky I have to have found this team! oh ya this is the 1st review I've written on yelp. I don't normally do this... hope you check them out:-)
More
Everyone at the office was so nice.  Dr Schmidt was considerate of my fears and made sure to make me as comfortable as possible.  He offered me a free trial of laughing gas, and it made all the difference.  While under the influence of the gas, the Dr and his assistant made jokes and kept my mind off of the fact that they were drilling my tooth. I came in for a broken tooth, but will be back for my cleaning and full exam, The doctor made recommendations, but was not the slightest bit pushy. So far, this is the best dentist I have been to.  I highly recommend them for anyone who has a fear of dentists, and of course for those who don't as well.

I had gum surgery a couple weeks ago from Dr. Krupp. The surgery was over two hr long and very detailed gum surgery. I was expected to have a lot of pain after surgery, but there was almost no pain until now!! Dr. Krupp gave me a couple prescriptions to take before surgery and that helped me a lot I am so impressed how Dr. Krupp fixed my teeth!! I am so glad that I chose This dentist place!! My first check up with Dr. Schmidt was so helpful and he gave me a lot of advises also. All front desk clerks are really knowledgeable and  friendly. They tried so hard to get my procedure payment approved from my insurance so my out of pocket cost will be less. Thank you, Lisa & Cindy!!  I really appreciate all of their help, advise and professional services! Next month I am bringing my daughter for braces. I am so comfortable to start with Dr. Schmidt.  I really recommend this Dentist for anybody who are looking for great dentist!

I'm very picky when it comes to choosing a dentist for my family.  We just switched over to Dr.Schmidt's after not being totally satisfied at our previous dentist and had and great experience all around.  The office staff is great, the dental assistant and hygienist are thorough and make you feel at ease and Dr. Schmidt gives good solid advise without trying to sell anything.  The office is clean and easy to find.  Originally just my husband and I switched over to this office but after a few issues at our children's dentist office we switched the kids over as well.  The kids, ages 5 and 8, felt comfortable and the office staff was quick (not too quick but didn't make them sit in the chair forever) and efficient with them.
More
Best dentist I've ever been too! My family and I will keep coming back as long as we are living in the area.

I never been a big fan of going to the dentist.  I learned early on in life I have a significant tolerance to Novocaine and other anesthesia, so I take forever to get numb and the anesthetic wears off rapidly.  I communicated this to Dr. Lacombe and staff and they listened!Dr. Lacombe had me come in early for my root canal and good thing we did.  She patiently checked to make sure I was as comfortable as possible and I think I amazed her by how many times she had to stick me.  :)  They even have a sense of humor after I asked if they get a referral bonus from the chiropractor next door after being in the chair for ~3 hours.I cannot say enough positive things about the staff and dentists here.  If your looking for great dentist office in Oceanside, look no further.

The stars speak for themselves... I was extremely skeptical! Even when I walked in the door on Sunday morning (btw how awesome is it they are open on sunday!) There wasn't a long wait. I filled out the new patient information and sat there nervously waiting to be seen. I have a verrrrry extreme phobia of the dentists. When I was called back Dr. Schmidt's assistant saw me and she was also sincerely friendly. I was very nervous and even told her so. She was reassuring and even made genuine small talk that established a good level of comfort. After taking the xrays Dr. Schmidt came over and he has a very warm presence. He told me my options and he was very honest and wasn't trying to get me to do the most expensive procedures. He let me be in control of what I wanted to do and left the options to me while still giving his suggestion. I don't think I've been into a dentist office like this ever. I truly appreciate the experience and have no doubts that I will be referring people to their office. Thank you to everyone who helped ease my anxiety in an emergency situation.

Awesome dentists and team. I have been going to  them since I got stationed in Camp Pendleton and so have my children. I have always been afraid of the dentist, like literally horrified of them, and I still get nervous but  this office has been the only office to be able to put me at ease, being patient with me, and going as slow as i needed them to go. They were also good about explaining every single thing they were about to do to me (shot, scrapping, drilling whatever it was) receptionists have also been great. Love this office :D

A friend of mine in Normal Heights was recently telling me how she was searching on Yelp for a dentist and saw only bad reviews in her area.  I immediately thought "I better put one up for Dr. Schmidt's office because they are awesome!"I have been a patient for years (fillings, cleanings, gum surgery, emergency work!) and now my kids go there.  My son even had his ortho work done in the Oceanside office and we have always been treated kindly and with respect.  My youngest has no fear of going to the dentist - she even asks when she can go again - because she's never known a bad exerience in the chair (she's always been in their chair!).Seriously, if you are looking for a dentist in the North County area please consider going to see Dr. Schmidt & his team.  I don't know how you could ask for anything better than this group of professionals.

By far the BEST DENTIST in San Diego County.  Every other dentist that I have been to looks at you and sees dollar signs.  Erich looks at you as a dental patient with a very conservative approach.  I travel 40 minutes to get up to his office in Oceanside.  It is worth every minute of my travel on the 5.  He has that good Midwestern ethics.

I've know Dr. Schmidt since his office was in San Diego, Ca  When he moved his practice to Oceanside,I now go up there to see him.  I live in Santee, but he's well worth the drive.  Dr. Schmidt & his staff are absolutely fantastic.  Everyone's so friendly & helpful. I'm very fearful of dentists& Dr. Schmidt & his staff go out of their way to put me at ease.  I had a root canal some time ago & I was scared to death.  Well, Dr. Schmidt performed the root canal with no pain whatsoever. I brought my granddaughter there a couple of days ago & she was a little frightened, but when she left the office she said "grandma, now I know why you travel so far to see Dr. Schmidt".  She said that Dr. Schmidt & his staff were so patient & kind to her & that she has no problem returning there to get her filling filled.  Again.  Great service with wonderful attention to making a patient feel comfortable.  Thank You, Dr. Schmidt

I just came from a cleaning with Dr. Schmidt and his team. I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised! After not going to the dentist in 2+ years, I was expecting the worst. Lori was my hygienist and she was very nice, informative, and gentile on the teeth and gums. She made sure that I was comfortable and that what she was doing did not hurt. Also, she gave me some new information my previous dentist had not and reviewed some old techniques that I had been slacking on. I would recommend this dental practice to anyone looking for a good dentist in the area.

Dr. Schmidt is the best dentist I've ever had. I'm 29 and still hate going to the dentist. Dr. Schmidt and his staff made me feel comfortable for my visit there. I'm a single mother so I had to take my son with me and they were extremely generous to my son and made him feel welcome as well. I recommend dr. Schmidt to everyone!

We don't live in the area, but went to this dental company from recommendations from my husband's co-workers. They are open on Sundays (super plus!) and even though it's hard to get in on Sunday's they were able to service my husband, myself and our two kids around the same time! The front desk staff was great and everyone made us feel welcome and comfortable. Gala was my hygienist and my cleaning went great! She was so nice and was very gentle on my teeth. My kids had fun and they even had a treasure box for them to pick a prize right after. My husband had Jan and she did a great job on his cleaning as well.All in all this was a great visit and they will be our permanent dental office of choice. They are in a great location to shop after - they have a good amount of retail shops and restaurants in walking distance!

I'm in a military family, so we move every three years and have to find a whole new set of doctors and dentists wherever we go.  I was lucky to have Dr. Schmidt and his office recommended to me by another satisfied customer-- he was great!  The office staff are warm and welcoming, Dr. Schmidt is friendly and professional.  My hygenist, Gala, was excellent with my cleaning.  She really enjoys her work and did an efficient, detailed job of cleaning my teeth.  No roughness or unnecessary pain.  I will be going back in 6 months because I am happy with my visit and would suggest to anyone looking for a great dentist that Dr. Schmidt is a great choice.

I am very scared of going to the dentist so I hadn't gone In over 10 years. At dr. Stsnfords office they took wonderful care of me. They took all of my needs into consideration and constantly made sure I was comfortable. They explain everything in details so I could understand and to top it all off they are open on Sunday so I don't have to take time out of my busy work schedule. They also offer nitrous to calm me down for only $25! That is a must have for someone like me!
