Had a great appointment experience. She really took the time to fit my crown perfectly even though it was in a difficult spot. Would definitely recommend
This is not the first time I have seen saw this dentist and she s always very nice and professional. I have been to her practice for years and even told my grown son about her and he also uses her now.
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 treat me. 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.
Again, the most pleasant dental experience ever!!!
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 and their 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!
Shatha is awesome. Has a great bedside manner and makes sure you are comfortable throughout your visit. Very appreciative of her kindness.
Very pleased and professional
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 asking if 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 afternoon is the worst time to make an appt. I WILL NOT RETURN
I love the whole staff at El Cajon Dental. I have a 16 year old & a 3 year old, and both kids enjoy going to the dentist. They are very personable & professional. I am so happy that I found them! Our family has been going there many years now.
Professional and informative.
Good. Nice, sweet, kind. Very kind to my son.
Hands down, Dr. Mechael is the best dentist I have ever seen.
Great office and staff. Have been coming here for years!
Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Made appointment go by quickly.
Outstanding ! All the people in the front office and dental staff are also outstanding !
Dr. Mechael is a phenomenal dentist. She is meticulous in her attention to detail and puts her patients first at all times.
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. This was 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 a lot of anxiety with dental work and this was the most pleasant visit even though the worst procedure.
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 sensitive teeth, 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.
Great as always.
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 takes interest 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 was referred to ECFD by my tax preparer. What a great recommendation! The whole staff is very friendly and professional. Dr. Mechael has the best bedside manner of any dentist I have ever experienced.
I had been very nervous about the root canal but it went really well!
Competent, compassionate, caring, careful - the best dentist I've found yet in San Diego.
Omg! I love her! Where has she been all of my life!!! I had the worst dentist ever before her! She is exactly what we have been needing in our family for dental care!
As always, my wife and I received excellent treatment. Dr. Mechael and her Staff are always so professional and caring--qualities that are rare in so many other medical offices today. For many years now, Dr. Mechael has given us her very professional and caring support. And the entire office, as well, offers patients the same dedicated service. Thank you, Dr. Mechael.
Dr. Mechael was, as always, prompt and most professional. She has been our dentist for more than 5 years, and we have always been treated by her and her entire staff, most courteously and with great support and concern. Thank you, Dr. Mechael, and staff.
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 desk and 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
We had our 1st visit with Dr. Mechael and I must say she was very personable and it meets the expectations of all the good reviews that we had read; we did some research. All of the staff were friendly and informative as well. We are very happy with our choice to go to El Cajon Family Dental.
She was so sweet and nice, can't wait to go back! Cleaning and fillings were painless and fun.
staff very friendly , helpful and cheerful.
