Dr. Mechael is the ultimate dental professional. We have been going to EC Family Dental for years, and have always been impressed with her skill and concern for her patients. With Dr. Mechael, the dental problem is analyzed, and thencorrected as promptly as possible, and always with our comfort in mind. And the staff--Robin,Cristina, Nancy, and others, is very cordial and accommodating. No one could ask more of a dental professional and staff. Thank you. George K.

I have issues with the dental chair as many do, I'm sure. I am very picky when choosing a dentist and after meeting her for my routine check up, I decided to go back to her office and have her treatme. I was overjoyed by her care and compassion. My first of many procedures (to come), was a major relief and I now can approach my future procedures 100% more relaxed and that makes me very happy. I highly recommend Shatha Mechael, DDS.

Thankful for her kind and considerate concerns for my condition, sorry sat ha that' I brought this condition to you for the " very 1st time in 32 years " of your experience, lol. None the less I appreciate everyone andtheir genuine concern for my well being. I have not been treated so nicely by a dentist in 23 years, and I hope to always use your company. Thank you for the referral Robin & Jackie to the endodontis I see them 10/2/17. l spoke to Laura and she was nice and was willing to use the referral dr Mecael gave me so I don't need to go back to Woodside Dental in Lakeside . I have been referring people to tryout you office!

Dr. Mechael is so gentle and so kind, which is very helpful for me, as I get nervous at the dentist's office -- especially when there's drilling! Her gentleness and professionalism makes the visit much more manageable for me. And she gives great hugs! :)

Dr. Mechael is great. She is very detailed, making sure everything is done right. While I don't care for dentists in general (most I had were very good however), she made me feel at ease, made me feel comfortable, kept askingif I was ok so it seemed she cared). I would highly recommend her to folks who need a dentist.

Worst dental experience I've ever had. Spent over 2 hours in chair getting tooth extracted that she never was able to remove. She gave up and referred me to oral surgeon. Was informed by a female staffer that Friday late afternoonis the worst time to make an appt. I WILL NOT RETURN

The staff were very friendly. I hope I always get to deal with the lady who helped me at the front desk when I arrived and Dr. Mechael each time I go in to get my work done and thereafter. Thiswas the first time in more than 20 years I have been to a dentist where I felt that my health and that of my teeth were more important that whether or not they could buy a new car out of the work they could convince me to get done. These people are TRUE healthcare professionals and I will tell EVERYONE i know to go nowhere else.

I have been seeing Dr. Mechael for about 5 years. She understands my silly needs like allowing me to take breaks to close my mouth (when it is OK to do so), using caution with the cold water on my sensitiveteeth, and she tells it to me honestly. I have recommended her to two other people. I am, however, particular to get her specifically to do my dental work.

Friendly and welcoming staff all around. You can tell they all really care from the office staff to the dentists. I have had 3 different dentists work on me and each of them greets me with a warm smile and takesinterest in my life. They make me feel comfortable and I know I am in good hands with them! They never pressure me to get tons of work done at once and respect thy I need to space appointments out due to budgeting.I love this place and tell all my friends about it too. Highly recommend! Thank you for your professionalism El Cajon Family Dental. Also they have a super clean facility!! Love it!

I love everybody there. Dr Dalia Jamma is the best she was saying all the time you are going home with free pain. She stayed late just because she wants to make sure of patient satisfaction. I called the front deskand told her that I am in pain and can't wait for my appointment next week she said don't worry we will see you today. Robin and Nancy are so friendly. I would definitely recommend them to my friends
