All of our patients are part of our dental family, and their loyalty is phenomenal. Most of them have been walking through our doors and seeing our dentists in La Jolla for more than 30 years, and we look forward to seeing them for many more years to come. Please read our testimonials and see what our patients have to say!

“I can’t thank you enough for your amazing care for all of my dental needs.  Your professionalism, quality of care, and compassion are unmatched.  And, thanks for your special trip to (the specialists) on my behalf.  I’ll see you next week.  And, my thanks to Darlene!” -Betty M.

“I have thought so many times of sending you a note of thanks, when I sit down to write my words are inadequate to express my feeling.There is not another person outside my family that has had the impact, the kindness, and generosity that you have. Thank you seems weak in expressing my feelings.  I hope you and your family are filled with joy and happiness.” –Gwen

“Dr. Dougherty and staff are the best dentist team I have ever used. Dr. Dougherty is like a trusted adviser for your dental needs and extremely competent. Debra my dental hygienist is pleasant and through and very helpful in keeping my teeth in top notch healthy condition. All in all an A+” –Dr. Lawrence B.

“It may sound strange to say good things about a visit to your dentist…but I love my dentist and his staff! What matters most to me in my dental care is excellence. Dr. Dougherty, along with his staff, Debra, Andrea, and Carmen, all come under that category. The office continues to stay at the top of its game using the newest equipment and procedures. The entire staff is, and has always been, both friendly and professional. I give the highest possible rating!” – Phyllis T.

“On short notice, and as a new patient, Dougherty Dental was able to fit me into a very tight schedule. The service was excellent and we plan to adopt Dougherty Dental as our preferred dentist.” – Merrill B.

“Extremely impressed with response to my emergency and quickness in getting appointment. Very caring office.” –Mary D.

“The staff was extremely professional and my first appointment went very well. Why wouldn’t it while looking at the Pacific the whole time!” – Peggy D.

“Very caring, listening, understanding doctor. Avoided any hint of pushing products not needed – another plus. Trust is critical and it was established quickly.” – Jim D.

“My entire family and a number of my friends go to Dr. Dougherty, except for my wife – but I’m working to fix that. Dr. Dougherty and his staff understand my health situation (Type 1 Diabetes) and explain how that affects my dental needs. They’re all extremely knowledgeable and friendly.” – Tom S.
