Verified Patient Reviews
I love Dr. Woods and her staff at Brighton Dental. Everyone is so kind and helpful and unrushed. I highly recommend Dr. Woods and her staff!
I am very stressed at dental appointments, that is why I rarely go to a dentist. Dr. Woods treated me well and without pain. I believe she intuitively knew I was uneasy. If you have to have dental care, Paige Woods is your safest and most humane choice.
I came to Brighten Dental with many problems with my teeth. I was very emotional and at the end of my rope when I was recommended to Dr Woods. I Did not read reviews beforehand. Dr Woods and her entire staff treat me like I am their only patient. I have not experienced any pain while undergoing any dental procedure. I've had four to date. Dr Woods got me through a tough time and now I have a nice smile , but , most importantly, my teeth are being maintained by the highest quality of care I have ever received.
I love coming to Brighton Dental. I refer ALL my friends here!
Woohoooo!!!! No numby stuff needed today!!!! And EVERYONE there knows how nervous I am about the dentist. And they're all so kind, empathetic, and patient. I will never go anywhere else.
Excellent. I had a medical issue not related to my teeth and she was excellent at looking at it and making a referral. She goes above and beyond. Very helpful
I love her holistic, natural approach! Rare to find!
My visit at Brighton dental was a positive experience. Dr. Woods and her staff were extremely polite & friendly. Dr. Woods was honest and to the point Took the time to explain to me my options and was extremely professional. I was impressed with her work she was able to save my tooth and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great holistic on the ball dentist with reasonable rates.
As always, wonderful!
It was seriously THE BEST cleaning I've ever had, despite the cavity bad news (but yeah, that's my own fault). It was like a massage for my mouth and I had a hard time NOT NAPPING!
She was very friendly and keep me informed what was going to happen and she made it very painless!!!!
The staff at Brighton are awesome and always make me feel so comfortable. I had my first time getting dental work done by Dr. Woods and she was amazing. She walked me through the process beforehand and was so transparent. She too made me feel very comfortable - as I hate needles and the feeling of drills on my teeth. The process was quick and painless! I don't even dread going for dentist appointments anymore. So happy I found my new dentist.
Front desk ladies are so helpful and extremely patient with questions and insurance help. All are cheerful, attentive and work at making it a family type atmosphere. Care is exceptional. Especially love their constant holistic and natural perspective.
I liked it that Paige had the dental hygienist stand in front of me so I could read lips while he told her what he found while cleaning my teeth. (I am deaf)
From start to finish, my experience was an absolute breeze. The facility is modern and clean, and I was so comfortable the entire time. I had a cleaning, x-rays, exam and 3 fillings done within 2 hours. Not only is the staff cool, professional and gentle, they also go above and beyond at every facet of the visit. Quite possibly the best dentist's office I've ever visited!
I have been going to Brighton Dental for over 2 years. My treatment plan consisted of major restorative work. Dr. Paige Woods and her team has restored my smile and fixed all of my issues. My mouth and physical health have been restored completely. Dr. Woods has done a miracle with my smile and dental health. Her soft touch and gentle manner made me comfortable throughout every step. I highly recommend Dr. Paige Woods and Brighton Dental for any and all dental needs. Thank Dr. Woods! You are the best!
Again with the AMAZING! Absolutely no issues and Dr. Woods' work product is incredible. <3
i've always hated and been afraid of the dentist more than the average person. i've had so many bad experiences with dentists that made me absolutely resent them- until i came here! everyone working here is so friendly and very careful with your teeth. i used to hate my dentist because they didn't care very much about how i felt or what was uncomfortable, but this office is very kind in that they will accommodate to whatever you need. i recently got cavities filled and while that usually gives me anxiety, everyone involved was very calming and made sure i did not have a bad experience. they even used lavender essential oil, which was nice. i highly recommend this dentist to anyone- especially if you have a fear or hatred of the dentist. they will turn that around for you for sure!
My seven-year old daughter suffers form Sensory Processing Disorder, and refuses to brush her wiggly teeth because of the extreme pain she feels resulting in lots of plaque around her teeth and very inflamed gums. None of the dental practices we tried succeeded in connecting with my daughter even though their specialty is in pediatric dentistry. They tried gas sedation, which didn’t work, and suggested general anesthesia in order to clean her teeth. A friend told me about a holistic dental doctor she knew in North County, so I searched for one closer to me and found Dr. Brighton. After reading the testimonials I decided to call for an appointment. I spoke with Kim, who was very attentive and understanding. I shared my daughter’s dental history along with my concerns and was given a one-hour appointment to ensure they had plenty of time. The day of the appointment when we walked into the practice we received a warm welcome. When I saw the doctor interact with my daughter, right away I felt that this time things were going to be different. Dr. Brighton and her assistant, Jose made my daughter feel at ease from the very start. And for the first time, my daughter let someone work on her teeth! It was not easy, and not all her teeth were cleaned, but a lot of plaque was removed and that was a huge step forward! Jose was AWESOME! He was able to connect with my daughter and treat her anxiety and fears with WORDS not chemicals. I praise his patience and wisdom in working with kids. My daughter is looking forward to her next appointment! I found my dentist and hope my testimonial helps others too!
I love my dentist! I was very anxious at first as I had not been in a while. I was not made to feel stupid and I was most definitely put at ease immediately. The entire's staff ability to calm me down and keep me calm through the entire experience was impressive. I felt like I was in extremely confident and knowledgeable hands. I no longer dread the dentist. I am pleased with all aspects of my experience and would definitely recommend Paige and her staffs' expertise and awesome bedside manner.
I haven't been this nervous in a LONG time! Dr. Woods and her staff really did all they could to calm my nerves prior to my crown replacements. And by the time they really got to work, I was okay. *whew* Again, their patience and complete understanding always amaze me. I will never, ever, EVER go to another dentist!
Dr. Paige Woods is always a delight! She is gentle & skillfull in her work. The office staff performs their jobs respectfully & professionally.
Every time I visit Brighton Dental I leave happier than I arrived. Very highly recommended!

I loved the friendly and caring ambiance created by Dr. Woods. She confidentially answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Woods!
She explains things very well to make sure I understand what needs to be done. Also very good with kids, I took my daughter there for a cleaning & she was amazing with her.
Yet another incredible appointment! And the fact that she has tools that allow a cavity to be drilled & filled with NO numby stuff?!? INCREDIBLE! I will always highly recommend Dr. Woods!
I was very impressed!! From the time I walked in until I walked out! Usually the dentist is the last person you want to see, I have to say I can't wait to go back for my cleaning!
Just a great experience. Thank you.
During the exam which was pretty short the doctor talked to the assistant about my teeth using medical terms but didn't explain to me what she saw until I asked which I didn't quite like. She also didn't take time to describe in details the procedure to me that she recommends for my tooth. I only found them out when the receptionist gave me the estimates. Overall I felt like the doctor didn't care much neither about me as a patient nor about my teeth.
Dr. Woods is absolutely the best dentist I have ever been to. I used to have an incredible fear of dentists, the pain and procedures, and intense anxiety (almost to the point of puking). But, since Day One, Dr. Woods has been incredibly patient, considerate, concerned, and has whittled away my fears. I can now go to the dentist with minimal to no fear. And it feels wonderful! Her staff at Brighton Dental are also very professional and fun. I feel like I'm walking into a room with old friends and family. Highly recommended.
Most excellent in all ways. I am pleased to be in her care and feel very confident about my treatment. The whole staff is excellent and cheerful and helpful and kind. Plus they sing a lot and I like that.
They were very through with everything and I felt very comfortable and relaxed the whole time.
Dr Dan left his practice to a very qualified dentist I'm very happy to stay with her
Skilled and friendly.
Paige Woods was very sweet and professional. She put in my temporary vaneers and I love them. I would definitely recommend her!
Get'er done! She instills confidence. I felt relaxed. No worries. Whole staff is great. Highly recommend!
She is a great dentist. She carefully listened, took X rays and then thoroughly investigated my teeth. Then she summarized of what was seen on the x rays and visual exam and let me know about my tooth and my options. She shared also practical tips.
She's a treasure - truly a wonderful human being
