    Very professional and sweet dentist. Everyone was extremely kind to me and made me feel less nervous about being at the dentist. I had a regular cleaning done and will be returning back to have more work.

    Dr. Mechael is fantastic! She is so friendly, and made me feel comfortable from the moment she introduced herself. She was sure to explain each procedure she was going to do before she did it, so that I felt comfortable and understood what was happening.

    Dr. Mechael was so nice and made the dental visit easy and painless for me. I didn't feel judged or harassed about the work I needed to be done, and they were patient with answering all of my many questions. I'm very glad I found this office.

    Great service. I had a cleaning done and went over everything else needed to be done.. Explained everything in detail and gave me a quote. No pushy sales techniques. I will be back when I am ready to proceed. Thank you to everyone in the office for the great visit!

    Very nice office amd staff, The doctor was very friendly. Knowledgeable and had a very good sense of humor. She explained everything to me. My cleaning looks beautiful. I also have gotten my back wisdom tooth pulled and I must say it wasn't that much swelling not that much discomfort. I will keep going to this dentist. I think I found me a keeper.

    I haven’t been to the dentist in so long so I must admit I was a bit nervous! But honestly service was great from the start! The nurse up front was very friendly and helped get my insurance stuff figured out and the doctors were so friendly and funny I felt so comfortable. They gave great advise and they really do want to make your smile healthy and bright! I plan to come here for a very long time. Thank you El Cajon family dental team (:

    Dr. Mechael was incredibly kind and understanding of my problems. She was so gentle with me, I cannot express how comfortable she made me feel. I have never felt so comfortable in a dentists chair, I was always scared and she really put me at ease. Thank you so much!

    I am not a fan of the Dentist office ever, I have had a few bad experiences, how ever Dr. Shatha Mechael is truly a Pro, I felt the Hospitality immediately, and it totally relaxed me. Dr. you definitely go the extra mile and it shows! Maoj you are a Rockstar, smart, an easy going, I was kept informed, and comforted, my instinct tells me she will own that practice someday!! Last but not least, my My new favorite Dentist Dr Pijarat, your since of humor is honorable and contagious, I respect these people, and would highly recommend anyone in need of dental work to contact them for appointment, I'm also also available If anyone else has questions or needs help

    Dr. Mechael is a smart and kind dentist. She is friendly and puts you at ease while she uses the most space age equipment to provide comprehensive and detailed work. Also - she does the work herself. I've been to plenty of dentists where I've only seen a hygienist and the Dr. comes in at the end of says goodbye. Dr. Mechael was there from start to finish and also checked to make sure my insurance was going to cover what needed to be done.
