I always have a great experience with Dr. Rees and his staff! I am welcomed with a warm greeting from Claire (Front Office Manager) and enjoy reconnecting with her each time I am there. The dental assistants are very helpful. AndDr. Rees is amazing (and funny!). He has such a calming way about him and keeps me informed of each step he takes. I strongly recommend Dr. Rees to new patients as I am confident they will be pleased with his work and with the entire dental office.

His sense of humor made me laugh and relax. He explained everything he was doing so I could anticipate what to expect. I have been to other dentists, and can honestly state that Dr. Rees will be my last. He is that good.

I feel like his bedside manner could be vastly improved. I have felt this way in the past and he has gotten a bit better than he used to be, at least the way he treats his staff in front ofme but I wonder how he treats them when patients are not around. I winced significantly when one of the shots of Novocain was being administered and he acted like it was no big deal, didn't ask if I was okay, if I needed a break, nothing. Just kind of hummed along to the music playing in the background. Also, he didn't remind me that once the numbness wore off I might be in a great deal of pain after the fillings so I had a nasty awakening later that evening as my whole face and head throbbed in pain. Needless to say, I will be looking for a new dentist, one who can at least feign empathy. On a positive note, the office staff and hygienists are all very pleasant and gentle but not at all surprised that there is and always been a high 'turnover rate' in that office.

Dr. Robert Reese was everything I could ask for in a Dentist. In 2 years I have been through a number of dentists in the San Diego area with no success of a true dentist home. Through much Prayer and referralsfrom my insurance company, I found Dr. Reese. It is not only him but his entire staff, I would recommend to anyone. They are all warm, courteous, and professional in there demeanor. Clair is a wiz when it comes to working with the insurance agencies to find the best route to save time and best of all Money for her patients. Over all, I feel I have found a home and would Highly recommend Dr. Reese and staff to anyone..! :})

The office told me that my insurance would cover $0 of the work. When I called my insurance they said some of the codes on the estimate were not even dental codes. Ripoff!!!

While Dr. Rees and his staff were very nice, I didn't have much confidence in my visit. I had to go back several times to get my filling fixed as I was experiencing pain. Ultimately, the filling fell out. This maybe a rare occurrence, but it was quite frustrating.

I have to say I was truly, pleasantly surprised by yesterday's initial visit. The first thing Dr. Rees asked me was how he could be the best dentist to me! He spent a lot of time with me, exploring my concernsand answering my questions very thoroughly. He truly seemed committed to making sure I had everything I needed to feel comfortable and participate in my treatment planning. Dr. Reese and his staff made me feel so at ease - Claire made sure my insurance information was in order ahead of time, and during checkout, read through everything with me to ensure I fully understood my treatment plan and insurance coverage. She seems like she really knows what she's talking about! Maritza was very attentive and absolutely lovely to be around. My whole experience was pleasant and exceeded expectations, start to finish.
