Dr. Gregory Hurt, DDS

Dentist, Cosmetic Dentist

Professional statement

**A Dental Consultation does NOT include a cleaning. It is an evaluation made by the doctor for future work** Dr. Hurt has spent 28 years practicing dentistry in the North County of San Diego. He has extensive experience in most areas of treatment including cosmetic dentistry, laser whitening, laser surgery, implants, root canal therapy, treatment of periodontal disease, crown and bridge work, dentures and surgery for simple and more complicated extractions such as wisdom teeth. His training allows us to provide treatment for almost any dental emergency and our use of conscious sedation techniques allows us to put those patients who “fear dentistry” at ease prior to and during their visit. Dr. Hurt three sons attended La Costa Canyon High School in Carlsbad, two are seniors in college and the third graduated with his engineering degree from USC. They enjoy sports, especially the ocean. They’re all certified Lifeguards with Professional CPR/AED certifications and Certified SCUBA divers as well. Although born in Iowa, Dr. Hurt has lived in most areas of the United States because his dad was a pilot in the Air Force and an Instructor for United Air Lines. This gives Dr. Hurt the unique opportunity of relating to his patients… wherever they’re from. We also have a very “international” staff that speak Spanish, Farsi, Turkish, Russian, as well as English… so communication barriers are rarely an issue.

Amazing experience! The staff was patient and listened to my wisdom teeth problems. They communicated with me a plan and exceeded my expectations. I'm pleased with the care provided and strongly recommend them for all your dental needs. Again, it was and continues to be an amazing medical experience.

I would trust Dr. Hurt to treat anyone and everyone I know, without a doubt. The most painful thing during my work was administering the anesthetic, which was a 1 on a 1-10, and that's I'll I need to say.

I'm relatively new in town and I had a dental emergency in the evening. I was able to schedule an appointment for the next day and was seen right away when I arrived. Staff was nice and explained the options andthe procedure clearly. The doc was friendly and I'll definitely be going back.

I just came back from my first appointment with Dr. Hurt. I had to have 2 wisdom teeth pulled, and like everyone else, I am very fearful of going to the dentist, but Dr. Hurt has been doing this for morethen 30 years, and he was great. I wish I would have found him 10 years ago. He tells you what needs to be done and does not try to sell you up. He is kind and caring. With that being said - I hope the ibuprofen kicks in - I am ready for this day to end.

Dr. Hurt should change his name, because he was very gentle! He gave my husband and I a lot of options, and found a way to treat a dental emergency on our budget with a long term plan that we couldafford. My husband, who is terrified of dentists, is already telling people that they should see this dentist.

Very easy to make the appointment for (next day) Saturday online. The staff and doctors were so friendly and explained the treatments so that I knew what to expect. Everyone was helpful as I needed a root canal. By Sunday mypain was gone and I am so glad I was able to find Dr Hurt's office open on Saturday.

Dr. Hurt in interested in giving you the right treatment for a reasonable price, not squeezing as much as possible from your insurance to fund a personal mansion fund. He was the first dentist to recommend getting the chips on myfront teeth repaired with simple nondestructive fillings (covered by insurance) rather than getting pressured to get super expensive veneers or crowns. I'm very happy with the results! He's a master with color matching!

I'm always happy with my experience. Dr. Hurt is the best at making patients feel completely confident that he knows exactly how to help and nothing is a problem. Really like that in a dentist since it's never an appointment I look forward to.
