Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Pilones was highly recommended by a colleague and she did not disappoint. She is a fantastic dentist and I will recommend her to others. I really appreciate the way she explained what she was doing and how I can modify my brushing habits to be less harsh on my gums. The office team was also great in coordinating my appointment and ensuring I wouldn't have to wait before being seen.
Please make a call and check the payment before you visit! there are some hidden charges if you don’t read carefully even though you have a dental insurance coverage. Good thing : I didn’t ask her to clean my teeth; bad thing: wasting time.
wow! can't wait to see her on . my next visit. She was the sweetest and most thorough dentist i have ever had! she was wonderful and a very cute office too!
Dr. Pilones was really friendly and resourceful. She was constantly giving me tips on how I can improve my oral health, and I learned quite a few things from her. Going in, I was worried that my permanent retainers might come off during the cleaning, but she was very careful as well. Would definitely recommend. (There was a bike rack, like 10 seconds away in front of a hair salon, for anyone who might be biking there)
I had a great experience with my first appointment and I am coming back and be Dr. Michelle’s regular patient. I am definitely giving this a 5 stars!
super kind dr. really nice to work with
I put off going to the dentist for SO long because I hate the scraping. Dr. Pilones was incredible. It was the least discomfort I've ever felt during a dentist appointment, she taught me a lot about my teeth, and she was so much fun to talk to. I'm gonna keep going to her as long as I live in the Bay Area.
Dr. Pilones might be the best dentist I've ever had! She was very kind, attentive and knowledgeable. You can tell that she really cares for her patients and even gave me tips and advice on how to better care of my teeth! She also spotted some issues from my braces (leftover cement) which my other dentists have looked over. I would definitely recommend her if you're looking for a dentist in the area and would come back again. :) 5 stars!!
Dr. Michelle Pilones was fantastic! She was incredibly friendly and helpful. So glad I found a great dentist in the area that I will definitely be going back to and recommend to others!
Dr. Pilones was wonderful! I hadn't been to the dentist in many years and she made me feel so comfortable that I will start to book regular dental appointments again :)
Dr. Pilones was so incredibly kind, gentle, and understanding. I have not been to the dentist in almost 10 years. I was terrified to go to the dentist, but Dr. Pilones was so sweet, and she explained everything she was doing. I never felt like she was pushing treatments or judging me. She honestly cares about your health and doing what is best for your smile. And the office is absolutely beautiful! And Dr. Lam at the front desk was very professional and welcoming. I can't say enough good things about this place.
Dr. Pilones was great, she gave me information to better my dental health long term that no other dentist has taken the time to tell me or even care about, she was very friendly and I have to love the evening appointments after work! Office was clean and quaint!
Amazing! I'm so happy I found her! Very gentle and patient! Really appreciate all of it!
She was attentive and honest. She really cares about the patient and is looking out for their best interest.
Michelle is great. My teeth have never felt so clean.
I was afraid of dentists before going to Dr. Pilones. She's very empathetic, communicative and gentle.
I am usually weary about seeing a new dentist but the minute I stepped into Dr. Pilones office I was greeted with a smile by the friendly front office manager Bora. He made me feel right at home. Dr. Pilones herself was so nice and very gentle. My visit was super. I am glad I found her and recommend this office to anyone needing a new dentist.
I travel for work weekdays and it's difficult for me to get my dental checkups while travel. I did some search on Zocdoc to see if there are any dentists working during weekends or weeknights.Then I found Dr.Michelle Pilones and made an appointment. My first impression with her dentistry was that it doesn't look like a dental office. It looks like a cool and hip coworking space which you can feel relaxed while working. The check in was easy and fast with the help of an office manager Bora Lam who is funny and resourceful. Then Dr. Pilones performed an X-Ray and gave me deep teeth cleaning. The best part is this was my first time that I did not have to be numb when getting my teeth cleaned. It was painless. There was no breeding. My teeth felt clean. She is by far one of the best dentists that I have ever had.
I have a fear of dentists but Michelle was very gentle and explained everything. So happy I have a new dentist I can trust.
I was very pleased!
Michelle was amazing. I had the best experience with her. She was professional yet funny, gentle yet thorough, and taught me a lot about my teeth. She was so informative with what she was doing and why. I am so glad that she has a more flexible hour than most places and was able to take me in. I highly recommend her if you're looking for a new dentist like I was. 5 stars all the way.
Dr. P is your best choice for a dentist. I've never had a more gentle cleaning. She really goes the extra mile to make sure everything is okay. She offered water, tea, and a blanket. When an unexpected fee came up she was sure to double check with me before proceeding. I highly recommend!
I am so happy I found Ocean Breeze Dentistry! I was nervous about getting my teeth cleaned because I have a few sensitive teeth and unfortunately I've had bad experiences with dental pain in the past with other dentists. Dr. Pilones was gentle and explained exactly what she was doing which made me feel better knowing what to expect. She did a very thorough job cleaning my teeth and best part was it didn't hurt at all! I had a tooth that also needed a filling and she made sure I wasn't feeling any pain during every step of the process. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean. Complimentary water and tea was also a nice bonus. My appointment was on a Saturday around noon- there was ample street parking. Definitely recommended!!
