Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Garofalo and his staff were awesome, especially his therapy dog, Karter! Everyone in the office was so friendly and made me feel right at home, as if I had known them for years. The office is very clean and up to date on the latest technology. This was one of the best experiences I've ever had at a dentist and I am so happy to have found San Diego Dentistry Studio!
Awesome office and staff. Everything was very prompt and personable. The dentist explained everything clearly and made a point to get to know his patients.
Office staff miscommunicated expectation of appointment.
This was my first visit to his office and to a dentist office in years. I was a bit apprehensive, but the staff was very friendly and made me feel at ease. Dr. Garofalo was very pleasant and fun to talk to. I will enjoy having him as my new dentist.
I am always pleased when I visit Dr. Garofolo's office. I have been a patient since he opened his office. Anh is my dental hygienist. She is efficient and friendly. Dr. Garofolo is the best! He is friendly and if shots are needed, he always hits the right spot and they are as pain-free as possible.
He's a very nice guy and is always friendly and thorough :) he explains everything completely and in depth so you understand what the procedure entails. The new iPad signing makes quotes they give, a snap!
