I've consistently received great care in this practice for the past 15 years. I just had a crown done by Dr. Kay. All went well! There was no discomfort and I'm very happy with the result.

David W.

I've been a patient here for well over a dozen years. Great front-office staff, dental assistants, and hygienists -- Susie is wonderful. Everyone is always very nice, friendly, and at the top of their game. Having recently taken over the practice, Dr. Kay is new to me personally, but I can already tell he is a very good dentist. Couldn't recommend them all more highly.

Nick P.

Great Overall Environment! Everyone is extremely helpful and receptive to personal needs. The staff approaches every procedure with a gentle touch to make you as comfortable as possible.

Andon G.

Best dental office I've ever been to! My entire family gets all their dental work done here. The hygienists are amazing. I highly recommend Rene G. She has so many years of great experience, you won't find anyone better! If you're looking for a great dentist and team, look no further. I highly recommend everything about Encinitas Ranch Dentistry!

Simply stated, great experience! I'm finishing 4 crowns with no discomfort. Dr. Kay is extremely patient and gentle. He is masterful in his ability to cosmetically design the perfect shape and color tooth. His chairside team, Toby and Jessica have just the right blend of professionalism and humor to make long visits a breeze. Additionally, regular cleanings with Renee are a must. She is a wealth of knowledge and a true perfectionist. When Monica takes my calls for appointments it's as if I'm speaking with an old friend, she remembers everything. Of course, Michelle organizes the paperwork to streamline the checkout process. Susie and Maria round out Dr. Kay's team with their cheerful smiles and positive attitudes. Thank you, Dr. Kay, for providing five-star care!

I have recently switched over to Dr. Kay's office and have been very pleased. The hygienists and the assistants are so nice and professional. I needed some help figuring out my insurance and Monica was great at knowing the ins and outs of my plan. I had some anxiety about doing dental treatment, but Dr. Kay explained things thoroughly and made me feel at ease. My crowns turned out awesome!

Matt G.

My experiences with Dr. Kay have been great, very nice guy and extremely professional, couldn’t ask for a better/more welcoming staff!

Josh G.

Dr. Kay is amazing at what he does and really cares about his patients. I just recently switched over and I haven’t had a single regret about doing so. Would highly recommend!

I’ve been to several dentists throughout the country and have to say that Encinitas Ranch is the best, HANDS DOWN! The receptionists are polite and helpful; cleanings are incredibly thorough, comfortable, and enjoyable! René is phenomenal and truly invests time in getting to know her patients and their needs. Even since moving across the country to the East Coast, I’ve still made a point to come back twice; well worth it!!!

Rob M.

Ok, going to the dentist is not very high on anyone's list, but THESE PEOPLE ARE GREAT!!! Being new to the area, I decided to try Encinitas Ranch Dentistry on the recommendation of a neighbor. I'm a solid twice-a-year patient, so I've had many cleanings in the past, and Rene was exceptional. Dr. Kay was very thorough and competent. He even diagnosed and fixed a "problem" that has bugged me for years. I have found my dentist! Thank you, Dr. Kay!

Sara E.

I have always found dental visits to be stressful until I went to Encinitas Ranch Dentistry. The staff was welcoming and helpful which was comforting. The hygienist did a great job cleaning my teeth, and Dr. Kay explained all the aspects of my treatment plan. I am extremely happy with all the incredible work he has done. Dr. Kay is trustworthy, caring, gentle and truly loves helping people. I would highly recommend Encinitas Ranch Dentistry.

Jamie H.

I LOVE Dr. Kay. He is a fabulous dentist!!! Today I had a dental problem. Even though the office was closed I was able to reach Dr. Kay. He met me in the office and diagnosed a cracked crown. He put in a temporary filling and I am going back tomorrow on a SATURDAY to get the tooth prepped for a new crown. He is taking care of me because I am moving to Orange County on Monday. I am so impressed with the outstanding service. Even though I will live in Orange County, I will continue to see Dr. Kay. There is no way I am going anywhere else!! I have been to many dentists over the years and I have never had a better dentist!!! Thanks, Dr. Kay for your care and concern.

Kelly F.

I can not say enough positive things about this place! I am very particular and crazy about my teeth. I moved 5 hours away and refuse to go anywhere else. Dr. Kay and all the staff are outstanding. They go over and beyond to cater to your needs; making you feel comfortable and doing the best work to your smile. Every cleaning or procedure I get done, I know I will get the best care and results.
