Great office. So comfortable and the work is so much better than I have had before.
Dr Abelar is a creative and technical genius. There is no problem he cannot solve with his up-to-date knowledge. His staff is the most helpful I have ever dealt with
Dr. Bergman was able to stabilize my jaw after suffering with TMJ for many years. His technical skills and patience changed my life for the better! The staff is wonderful!
Professional and friendly staff. No wait time. Quality service.
Fantastic dentist! The entire staff does a great job also.
Josie and the rest of the staff is terrific!
Dr Abilar and his staff are awesome - I feel extremely confident to be in their very capable hands regarding all of my dental care !! Great attention to detail and follow up - I have total confidence in Dr Abilar and the whole team ! Thank you !!
I have been a patient of Dr Abelar for many years now. He is an excellent dentist and also does beautiful cosmetic dentistry. He is always informative and his manner is comforting. His front desk staff is very nice and always accommodating. His assistant, Charlotte, is wonderful too. She is always a pleasure and she is good at keeping me comfortable. I feel very lucky to have such a great dentist! I highly recommend this office!!
I had my first appointment with Josie, the new hygienist. She was thorough, friendly, and a very professional. I give her five stars.
Excellent thorough cleaning with Jodi, who first asked if I had any problems or concerns. . Dr. Abelar reviewed my X-rays and discussed them with me. He explained in depth as we looked at the X-rays on a screen in front of us. I finished up with Kelly at the counter, (who also greeted me on arrival.) She was very friendly & professional. I scheduled a follow up appointment with Dr. Abelar before leaving. I liked that they have designated parking at side of office. I continue going back to Dr. Abelar & Jodi because of their top quality work, care and kindness.
Dr Abelar and his entire Team are more than excellent! I drove to San Diego, CA from Gold Canyon, AZ in order to have my teeth worked on by the BEST! Dr Abelar and his Team make me actually WANT to go to the Dentist! Crazy, right? They make me feel safe and are extremely concerned that I am comfortable throughout every procedure! They receive MORE than five STARS!!! 😊👏
I had such a great experience at the dentist today! I had new xrays taken by Susie and she was outstanding and they didn’t hurt at all. Then I met Dr. Cathy O. and her exam and treatment recommendations were very thorough and helpful. Then I met my new hygienist, Josie, who was so pleasant and technically excellent and I experienced absolutely no pain. I am thrilled with the care I receive at Dr. Abelar’s office!
Martin is a skilled and highly experienced practitioner. He goes over and beyond to deliver best in class results. However; this being said, his greatest strength is hiring. Over the past ten years I have borne witness to a succession of exceptional employees. Each has been cross-trained to deliver the a seamless client experience. As a client I appreciate professionalism.
Dr. Abelar and his incredible and friendly staff have been my only dental service for nearly 30 years. They are very professional , but treat you like family. They care and delivery the best total dentist experience I've had in my 65 years. I'm grateful and cannot imagine ever looking for anyone else.
For me trips to the dentist regardless of the reason is always filled with apprehension. That changed when I started using Dr. Abelar. Jody takes the fear and concern out of cleanings and check ups and Dr. Abelar is just the best I've used in my 65 years. He is kind and listens and understands my fears. He is a perfectionist and that means a lot to me.I moved from San Diego about six months ago but still travel back to San Diego to this group for my cleanings and dental work. I pay the expense of flight, hotel and rental car in addition to the cost of their services. That should say it all.BW
Best Smile around! Dr. Abelar has been taking care of my dental health for over 30 years, and he is truly an expert. His support staff made me feel quite comfortable, and the teamwork is outstanding.
Dr. Abelar has been my dentist for 20+ years. Over the years I moved a couple times and he moved his office. These moves made it a little inconvenient to get to his office so I tried a dentist closer to home. With that new dentist I had a couple cleanings and all seemed well. After one of my cleanings I had an exam with that dentist. After the exam he moved me into the "consultation room" to discuss the exam. In the room he proceeded to tell me that I had a crown that was failing and that I should get it replaced ASAP. As he was telling me this his assistant was handing me the estimate and asking for a time to schedule. It all seemed very weird to me so I called Dr. Abelar and asked to come in to see what he thought. He took a look and said that my crown was fine and I did not need anything and in fact he was absolutely right. Five years later still no issues. Just the other day I bit into something hard and it caused some discomfort so I called and went in. He took a look and said everything was fine and that the discomfort would go away over a few weeks and it has. Again, integrity. In my mind, not only does Dr. Abelar have the highest integrity he is an amazing dentist. All the work he has done for me has yet to fail. I won't anyone drill in mouth but him and yes I now happily travel to see him. You want a dentist that you can trust that does amazing work Dr. Abelar is that dentist.
Very professional and meticulous dental work.
Outstanding! I had a complication by another dentist- Dr Abelar quickly assessed and corrected the problem- experience just can't be taught! The office is quiet and elegant and the staff are friendly and polite. Many thanks!
When you love leaving the dentist, that definitely tells me something about this gem. I just had my cleaning and I can't wait to go back. I was struggling to find a new dentist as I just moved here to SD. I'm so happy I found Dr. Abelar and his team. Literally from start to finish the experience was great. I was really nervous finding a new dentist because everywhere I looked had horrible reviews/not reliable reviews. Kelly was awesome and helpful finding me an appointment with my busy schedule and accommodating as she fit me in within a week of me calling them. Jody was super awesome! She was the hygienist. Made me super comfortable and I could tell she was doing a thorough job on getting all that gunk built up. You can tell the difference when they just scrap here or there versus when they are getting every single tooth and in the gums. My X-rays apparently made everyone go bananas there since my wisdoms were at a horrible position but Dr. Abelar was honest and made me feel that his team were real genuine. My wisdoms don't hurt or bother me so we'll just take it one step at a time. I can't stress enough how lucky I feel finding this place. Glad I have a new dentist as I make SD my new home. Thanks guys! See you in 6 month!!
I had my first appointment this week. The office is professional, everyone is pleasant and it was an overall great experience.
Always easy and painless!
Going to the dentist is not much like a day at the spa, but if you could give a spa day to your teeth, Dr. Abelar's practice would be the only place to go! This place is just fantastic. From the welcoming, friendly staff to the newest/best technology and the beautiful spa like ambiance, this is a top shelf experience every time! Do your teeth a favor and check out this place for the best of the best in dentistry. A big thank you to the whole team for always making my visits so great, I can't say enough good things! I drive from Los Angeles to San Diego to go here and I'll never go anywhere else!
Jody and the entire team always do such a nice job of combining excellent patient care with outstanding customer service!
Fabulous experience as always ! Terrific cleaning by Jody - and great support - service from the staff ! Could not be any better !! Thank you all !
The entire staff exudes confidence, professionalism, and warmth. And in particular, Jody Sanders is an alchemist. When she cleans my teeth they transform into a huge personal asset vs looking like -- well not nearly as attractive, cigars notwithstanding.
I am one of many who hates going to the dentist. The overall experience was excellent.
Dr Abelar has been my dentist for decades. He and everyone that works in his office is friendly and professional. He has outstanding integrity, uses all the latest technologies and is concerned about best interests of each patient
Dr. Abelar is an amazing dentist. My family and I have known him and his team for many years and they have always been amazing. He is very meticulous and caring about his patients. He never leaves patients waiting too long. He explains the procedure each step at a time. And all the staff in the office are really nice. I strongly recommend this team. You will not regret going there.
The whole team, front desk to hygienists, dental assistants and Dr. Oleksy are all fabulous!
Dr Olesky is wonderful!
Always great - always proactive - Trusted Professionals!
Outstanding! I finally bit the bullet and decided to do my veneers- I was so worried that they would look fake but they look better than real! Dr Abelar is a perfectionist. His staff is very professional and friendly. Very grateful! Highly recommend!
The staff was wonderful and very friendly. Dr. Abelar was very efficient and efficient
Jody is the best dental hygienist ever!!! Couldn't be happier!
Dr. Oleksy is the absolute best! She is so professional and kind. Believe me, this is coming from someone who is frightened of going to the dentist and I trust her completely.
Excellent treatment from everyone in the office
A veneer I had had for 10 years cracked during dinner. By noon the next day, dr abelar had replaced it with a temporary. It looks as good as new. I greatly appreciate the speedy help.
Your staff is the best! Always nice to come in.
Dr. Abelar and his entire team are fabulous! His attention to detail and willingness to keep his patients comfortable and informed is a breath of fresh air. Jody is the best Hygienist you'll find. The entire staff know what they're doing and take the dread out of having any dental work done! Two Thumbs Up!!
Kelly is a superb receptionist. And as a dental hygienist, Jody is an absolute perfectionist. The obvious knowledge and technical mastery she commands always educates and delights me. She stands alone in my estimation.
One of the best dentists EVER
great communication, great people, very professional, super work
My wife and I are very satisfied patients of Dr. Abelar for the past 17 years.
Dr. Abelar is without a doubt the most highly proficient, experienced, knowledgeable dentist you will ever meet. His expertise includes not only traditional dental work (crowns, fillings, bridges). His cosmetic veneers are amazingly beautiful and natural. Dr. Abelar’s experience and dedication to TMJ issues, occlusion, and sleep issues are what has made him recognized by his peers as exceptional and tops in the dental field.
Cleaning and filling went great
As always the office receptionist, Kelly, and Jody, my hygienist, greeted me with a smile and kind words. They are friendly, but always professional. Jody does an excellent job cleaning my teeth and gives me a report on how everything in my mouth looks, including a visual cancer screening. She is exceptionally thorough and proficient. I highly recommend Dr. Abelar and Jody for dental care.
Wonderful. Dr. Abelar is a great dentist & a great guy. All the staff was so helpful & pleasant. Thank you.
Jody is just awesome. Very detail oriented in her work. I am a difficult patient due to my very sensitive teeth, Jody has always been very careful about my issue.
I paid for cleaning but teeth were still in so do i have to pay for cleaning again when he takes them out & cleans under them? If so, why didn't he just wait till I come back & he takes out my plate & have one cleaning bill?
Office’s atmosphere is so pleasant & soothing. Love all the personnel’s. All so easy to talk to. Very engaging.
Dr. Abelar and his team are the best of the best!
Always a great experience with the whole team in this amazing office! Thank you!
Great experience! Thanks
Josie was fabulous! very gentle and thurough ! Love this place!
Outstanding Jody, always the professional very kind. She always insures my comfort, give the girl a raise!!!
I have been going to Dr Abelar for over 35 years and have always received the best and most professional care from he and his staff. This has been especially true recently, following my becoming partially handicapped.
Always a 5 Star experience. Great dentistry, efficient and every is exceptionally professional.... and nice too ! Thanks for the great service.
The Dr. & staff are top notch, friendly and as always, I'm thrilled with the outcome.
Always 5 Star !!! Excellent dental work, efficient, timely and everyone is so nice and professional. Thanks Marty !
Your office could not offer a more friendly environment which is a tribute to you.
My experience has been nothing less than stellar for the last 10 years.
Painless experience to have an old crown and the decay below this removed crown removed.
The best dentist and dental hygienists I have had the pleasure of visiting ever!
My dental hygienist, Jodi, saved my gums over 8 years ago. I had my check up yesterday and scored 100%. Thank you.
Once again I have had an amazing experience here. Right from the start with Kelly who makes you feel right at home and is so pleasant to the absolutely painless treatment by Dr Abelar! ( also had my teeth cleaned a little over a week ago by Jody and she was terrific as always! If you are in the market for a new dentist with state of the art experience this is your new home! The ENTIRE staff here is the best !!!!
Theresa was a great addition working with Dr. Abelar, who I've been seeing since 1986. Fantastic dentist.
Josie was great. Very comfortable experience
Sustained excellence. Thank you Kelly and Jody. It may sound counter-intuitive, but I look forward to having my teeth cleaned by Jody. My only regret is the 90 day interval between cleanings!
The entire staff was friendly and caring
My First visit after recently moving my care to San Diego. Great office, great staff. I plan to bring my family here.
This was my first time with Sue. Sue was professional, and also warm. She asked me questions and cared about my comfort. She told me about the condition of my teeth as she proceeded cleaning them. When I mentioned my tongue scraper didn’t work well she found a better one for me,
Great staff, so pleasant & thorough. Got me quick on an emergency. Very satisfied!
Thanks again ladies!! Kelly, Janice and Dr. Olesky (and Jodes too!!)...rave reviews for the crew! See you on 4/6 at 10:30!
Dental cleaning was quick, gentle, and informative. Thank you for excellent service!
Great office and everyone is very kind and professional. I saw Dr. George Crow for some surgery. Mild discomfort, quick appt and was back at work after my surgery within an hour. I would recommend Dr. Martin Abelar and Dr. Crow for any dental need you might have.
Thanks so much for helping an out of town ER in distress!!!!
As always; Dr Abelar and his staff are absolutely amazing! Kelly( Receptionist) and all around Girl Friday is consistently extremely pleasant and makes you feel right at home!
Always a joyful experience at Dr. Ablelar's office. Love them all! Thank you for always taking care of me! So professional and kind!
Great team! I appreciated the education from the hygienist
Everything was wonderful. Thank you.
Keep the same professionalism and friendliness. You are great!
Jody is absolutely spectacular!!!! She has a way of cleaning your teeth and gums without causing any pain whatsoever!!! Amazing experience as always..... the entire staff here is top shelf!!!!
As usual another outstanding experience at Dr Abelars office The staff is absolutely amazing ....... always so upbeat and helpful! And if you are like me and have a phobia about going to the dentist they quickly make that go away. Best of all it was totally painless!!
I had a crown come off during a recent trip to Germany. A quick call to the office, and I was able to been seen as soon as I returned home. Within an hour, my crown was replaced, and without any anesthesia or pain. Now that's what I call "Service!"

Thanks ladies!! Kelly, Janice and Dr. Olesky (and Jodes too!!)...ya'll are the best. See you next month! (Kelly, I'll make that appointment at the end of the week!)
The technician was great and thorough , appreciated her bedside dental manner.
No Improvements Needed! No improvements needed! Thanks much!
Quality care, as always, over the many years I have been coming to Dr Abelar's practice. I became semi-disabled over the last year and my mobility limitations were immediately and well paccommodated.
I continue to drive 20+ miles to see Dr. Abelar for my dental work and the excellent Jody for cleanings. All details are handled, like warming up the rinse water because I am cold sensitive, and painting desensitizing gel on my gums before a cleaning to make it more comfortable. There's always a soft pillow and an engaging conversation. The time just flies! This is a 5-star practice. If there were 6 stars, I would choose that!
I felt confident in Janice (both skill and demeanor) and most impressed with the staff, the facilities, and quality of service I received. My wife has been a patient of Dr. Abelar's for over twenty years finds him astute, professional, kind, with outstanding cosmetic dental acumen.
Don’t usually write reviews but it has been a struggle to get Zoey to go to the dentist and to get her through the cleaning so wanted to give my feedback. Whatever Jody did - it worked! Zoey said she would come back for a cleaning! Thank you!!!
Thank you, Kian was pleased with his dentist visit!

Ben with Dr. Abelar well over 20 years. So far it has been a terrific experience and service fro R. Abelar and his very courteous staff of professionals.Looking forward to a few more years.
I have been going to Dr. Abelar’s practice for over 20 years. He and his staff are not only courteous and professional they are very accomplished dental practitioners.
It is easy to extol the virtues of Dr. Abelar's office: friendly, warm, encouraging, professional, but while this is my experience on every visit, it is the results they produce that separates them from every other dentist I have been to. This recent visit involved a semiannual teeth cleaning, which was performed by the gold standard of all hygentist's, Jody. She is a compassionate advocate for your health and well being. By following her hygiene recommendations, my margins were virtually all 2 and 3. I used to have undergo deep cleanings for all 4 quadrants. These are now a thing of the past. Her help has virtually eliminated tooth decay, produced a healthy smile, and eliminated unwanted hours in the dental office and has saved me a lot of money! Dental health is very important, not only for your appearance, but also for your pocketbook. You and your family deserve the best and Dr. Abelar's office Is the place where your teeth should going.

Great experience! Another great looking crown with no pain and excellent results.
Many folks dread a visit to their dentist. I used to until I found Dr Abelar and his amazing staff. Absolute painless dentistry. Friendly staff and a true desire to provide the best care.
Can’t think of anything to improve ! 🙏 Thank you Seasons Greetings !
It is hard to imagine how my experience could have been better. Dr. Abelar and Jody have cared for my teeth since 2003. After contemplating medically-recommended upper veneers for two years, I was still anxious but decided to do it. Dr. Abelar, Charlotte, Kelly, and Jody were totally patient and helpful with my many questions, professional with very high standards, efficient without rushing, with a wonderful outcome. Their patient is the whole person, not just your teeth.

Awesome as usual :-)
Everyone in the office from Kelly who greets you, to the hygienists (I met with Jody for my cleaning but all were very nice), to Dr. Abelar himself were extremely friendly, helpful, and genuinely wanted to give me the best visit possible. It was a great and helpful experience all around, as well as being very informative.
My dentist is the best. Pain free. Professional, but friendly. Awesome staff
Everything is always perfect. Warm welcoming, Knowledgeable professionalism, Without any prevention. The finest dental office I know of ! Thank you for being so good !
As a patient with my wife for the past 9 years, we have been consistently treated to an excellent and highly proficient staff. It is evident Martin invested in the best technology as evidenced by his topographic mapping for crowns. This single piece of equipment has greatly improved my client experience. Moreover, it is also evident Martin hires, trains and retains top talent while building an environment where motivated professionals can and do flourish. The office atmosphere is friendly, educational (the waiting room videos provide teachable dental vignettes) and Kelly at the front desk burns scented candles that add to the positive vibe. As always, Jody's excellence in dental hygiene and client education are non pareil.
Can’t think of anything
Nothing I can think of !
Kindest staff you'll ever encounter. The staff make the whole experience fantastic. Highly recommend.
Dr Abelar and his entire staff is amazing! They make you feel like you are a member of their family ! The work performed is pure perfection and 100% pain free!
Always great to see Jody - Kelly is always so nice and pleasant to work with! Always great to see Jody - Kelly is always so nice and pleasant to work with!
Knowing that i was coming in to get my back tooth removed had given me extreme stress and anxiety. Dr Abelar had assured me that I would feel absolutely no pain.... of course I knew best.... Wrong!!! It was another outstanding pain free experience!!! The staff was amazing and the procedure went perfectly . Thank you once again!
Excellent Experience! Excellent experience and I'm not an easy client, they listened to my issues and addressed them
After going through three other dentists in four years after having moved to SD, and leaving behind a wonderful dentist in Detroit, I️ am so happy to have found Dr Abelar! His office staff is incredibly kind, attentive and competent. The hygienist was experienced, knowledgable/educational and so friendly. The dentist took at least fifteen minutes, maybe more of face to face discussion to get to know me and my history. This office is intimate enough where you feel like they are really getting know you. I’m so happy to have finally found you! Will be sending my husband to see you soon!
Dr Abelar is the best ! He made the time on extremely short notice not only to see me and inspect the situation but also to do the necessary work to put a crown on my tooth the same visit. He islso manages to consistently be pain free in all he does !!! Thanks again !!!
Excellent experience and I'm not an easy client, they listened to my issues and addressed them
My first appointment was for a cleaning and an evaluation. My second appointment was for two crowns. As an experienced patient I know that Dr. Abelar did a lot of work before placing the temporary crowns and I fully expected to have achy pain afterwards. Nada. NO pain. For a number of reasons, I have put off needed dental work for too long. However, 4 more crowns and a few fillings to go and I will be good to go for a number of years. Thanks to Dr. Abelar's skills, so far: 2 crowns and 0 root canals! It is an incredible relief to I know that I am the hands of a master who will do his very best to fix whatever problems he finds!
Always great to see Jody - Kelly is always so nice and pleasant to work with
Don’t change anything
I had a treatment covering six months involving one implant and two crowns. Dr. Abelar is the Michelangelo of aesthetic dentistry; he is also a great technician. On what was scheduled to be my last appointment, he noticed one of the crowns (for a front tooth) just did not look right. I couldn't see a problem with it. He said this needs to be perfect, so he had the lab redo the crown. I never would have known the difference. This is exactly the kind of person you can trust with your healthcare. Why would I, or you, want to go anywhere else?
My appointment was actually with Dr Crow the Periodontist that works directly with Dr Abelar from phase one throughout the entire process. I had an extraction and immediate implant placement. I had no pain whatsoever! I know I'm in good hands with this team.
Excellent professional service
I have been with Dr. Abelar for many years and am ALWAYS satisfied with the entire office staff and the doctor. If I could give a 10 star rating I would.
I came in for a 2nd opinion and liked Dr. Abelar and his staff so much that i made the switch! Thank you!
Irene performed a very thorough dental cleaning for me. She was professional and friendly.
My introduction to Dr. Abelar and his staff could not have been better! I recently moved here from Redwood City searching for the most competent aesthetic dentist in the area. Based on my very positive experience with a Stanford University-referred aesthetic dentist and a high tech endodontist there, I know that high prices are no indication of competence. I found Dr. Abelar based on his training, teaching credentials use of high tech, referrals and testimonials. With aging teeth, I need a fair amount of work to prevent tooth loss and competence is key. I was delighted to find that he is also a passionate and caring professional who trains his staff well! My hygienist, Sue, is very knowledgeable and gave me simple, clinically proven and inexpensive ways to increase my gum care. Dr. Abelar is also in the Delta Dental network and his prices are very reasonable. As an added bonus, Kelly is a master of insurance. As I requested, she located my DD plan before my appointment to determine that my oral exam and (3 -year) x-rays were covered. Also, as I requested, within an hour I had a detailed and exact plan for all needed work and Kelly was able to give me detailed DD estimated coverage and my net cost to max out my DD benefits for 2017. After hours of searching for a competent and artistic dentist in San Diego, I am confident that I have found the best one!
I am 100% satisfied. I come in for dental cleaning 3 times a year, and always have such a nice experience with Jody, and this time it was Sue! And of course Dr. Abelar and Kelly are wonderful too. Thanks for having such wonderful staff!
Everything was great !! I have recommended Dr Abilar to several friends He and his staff are top notch !! I am totally confident is all of his care and trust his recommendations !!
Super friendly staff and technology that makes everything fast and comfortable!
Professional, skilled, caring, compassionate, great outcome.
Appreciate the warm greating when I arrive and the outstanding care that Jody gives me. She is the best!
Always professional - always proactive!
The best quality care and professional service. Dr. Abelar and his team can handle all dental needs for entire family in a beautifully appointed office with all the latest technology.
Usual fine service & talent
Jody Sanders is the best dental hygienist ever!
I had a great experience and everyone was very professional.
Always like visiting with friends.
Jody is the standard by which I measure all professionals. Her hygentist skills and preventative diligence have proved invaluable to me.
Dr. Abelar Best dentist in San Diego!
The staff was warm and inviting and Dr. Abelar took the time to discuss options with me
Elegant environment Incredible customer service Outstanding professionalism Supporting and caring Exemplary dental and medical knowledge Extremely efficient
I had a dental emergency and my regular dentist did not have emergency or after hour services. I met Dr. Abelar at a few events and knew he was a professional dentist so I contacted him and he said that he would be happy to see me and see if he could be of any help. I was able to see him 20 mins after my phone call to him. His office is very conveniently located to my home and was able to get there in 10 mins. When I arrived he greeted me and took X-rays and told me the best suggestion he had to alleviate all the pain I was in was to extract the tooth. I happily agreed and in a matter of minutes the tooth was removed and I was on my way to healing. Dr. Abelar is extremely knowledgeable, professional and one of the best. Glad to now have him as my dentist as well as a friend. I highly recommend him to everyone!!
For many years I have been blessed to have Jody Sanders as my dental hygienist. She is the consummate professional and is passionate about her work and truly cares for her patients. Her dental hygiene recommendations have saved me thousands of dollars over the years. “Deep cleanings” were an annual experience, but following her hygiene suggestions, they are a thing of the past!!! And when the time comes for restorative or aesthetic dentistry, Dr. Abelar is the gold standard. Your teeth are a critical part of the impression you make on others, as well as how you feel about yourself. You owe it to yourself to experience the best team in San Diego.
Wonderful far better than I could have hoped for.
Efficient, thorough and on time. Completed both a cleaning and whitening in about an hour and a half. Everyone in the office is very pleasant!
Dr. Abelar and his staff are wonderful. Our entire family visits his office and the care is world class!
Dr. Abelar, has been my dentist for years! I think he is the best dentist in San Diego! His hygienist, Jody, is the best dental hygienist and most thorough I have ever known! I wouldn't let anyone else clean my teeth with the exception of Dr. Abelar! Dr. Abelar, is extremely gifted and artistic! He has done an extraordinary job creating a million dollar smile for me He will always be my dentist!
I am always happy to visit my dentist's office for my routine cleanings and exams! Dr. Abelar is very thorough and is an excellent dentist. Jody is the best hygienist in San Diego and always does such a great job cleaning my teeth! I would highly recommend their office to anyone looking for a great dental experience!
I had my dental cleaning appt with Josie, Dr.Abelar's Friday hygienist. Would highly recommend her. She is very thorough and gentle. The office is very nice, clean and everyone is friendly. Check Dr. Abelar and his office out if your looking for a great Dentist and Quality care!
My family and I have been clients of Dr. Abelar for about 40 years. We have always found the Dr. and his staff to be careful and thoughtful about their recommendations and their dental work whether it be dental procedures or cleaning and maintaining our teeth and our mouth. Dr. Abelear and his staff have the latest equipment to work with and the latest training to operate the equipment. They are all on the "cutting edge" of dental procedures, cleaning and dental maintenance and insurance and billing. I have nothing but good things to say about the Dr. Abelar and his staff.
Absolutely the best from jody the hygeneist toDr abelar and his medical asistant to the receptionist up front.
Always a great experience at Dr. Abelar's. He is quick to help out when I have had dental "emergencies". Great office staff too! I highly recommend Dr. Abelar for all of your dental needs.
I have been a patient of Dr. Abelar’s for nearly 20 years now. During this period of time, I have undergone an array of procedures, from standard fillings to root canals. I have also experienced cosmetic dentistry in the way of frontal veneers with him. I can say with 100% honesty that I have never had a single unpleasant experience with Dr. Abelar. He is exceptionally skilled, talented, professional, and an absolute expert in the field. In addition to being a gifted dentist, he is also very artistic, which explains why he is the best cosmetic dentist in San Diego. His attention to detail is truly unsurpassed.It is for these reasons that I trust my teeth and smile to no other dentist, and also why I have referred him to all of my friends and family members, all of who are equally satisfied. I have never heard anything but appreciation from those to whom I have referred Dr. Abelar.Dr. Abelar’s practice is incredibly beautiful, clean, modern, and well-maintained. As an individual, Dr. Abelar is unequivocally compassionate, considerate, and caring. He is a true gentleman, which was clear from the moment I met him. Likewise, his staff members are very knowledgeable, efficient, kind, and sincere. Their concern is clearly genuine, and they very much help ensure that you are always comfortable and taken care of.
I love going to my dentist. Check in is always simple and the team at Dr. Abelar's is always on time. And who thought getting your teeth cleanied could be so delightful . Thank you Dr. Abelar for caring for my teeth, as much as I do
Amazing experience and team approach.
I saw the hygienist Josie today. She's great, thorough and gentle. I like how my teeth feel after having them cleaned. I would highly recommend Dr. Abelar and his team. They are professional and always make me feel welcome. One of the best.
very nice office, friendly and competent staff and very caring dentists!
Best dentist in San Diego!
Always fantastic! Dr. A and Jodi are great!
Dr. Abelar, Jody, Kelly and Charlotte were all wonderful at my last visit!
Great first time experience in your office ! On time , wonderful staff & a very pleasant experience with Dr Ablar
Quick and easy - great results!
Always a pleasure to visit your office! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!
The office arranged a very quick turnaround time for my crown due to upcoming travel plans. Dr. Abelar and his dental assistant, Charlotte, do exceptional quality work and always focus on patient needs. The office uses state of the art technology. Kelly is always pleasant and deals with all scheduling and billing issues. Jody is an experienced and highly knowledgeable hygienist. I highly recommend Dr. Abelar and his team.
Thanks again Dr. Abelar for keeping my teeth perfect.
Since 2008, I have been under the care of Jody Sanders, the hygienist. She is singularly the most skilled practitioner or oral hygene I can imagine. Given it is her aspiration to excel -- I am privileged to be in her care.
GREAT!!! I had a filling that popped out during the long holiday weekend. I left the doctor a message after hours and he got right back to me the next morning. I went by the office and the Doctor squeezed me right in. I was in and out of there in under an hour. Great workmanship. A great eye for detail.
I had a 14 year old cap on my front tooth dislodge after hours last night. I placed an emergency call to Dr. Abelar and explained my situation. He agreed to see me first thing the next morning. He put in a temporary fix while he reviewed with me the alternative treatment options. He has been my dentist for over 15 years and is the consummate professional: an artist, tactician and one who is always there to meet the needs of his patients..
Great as always
I've said it before, and I'll say it more clever. Jody is the best health provider ever. She keeps my gums healthy, keeps my teeth clean, keeps me a lean/mean/smiling machine. Feelin' kinda nervous? She'll talk you all through it. I was sparkly teethy boy before I even knew it. Don't like the pokey? Don't like the proddy? Go with the efficient, smart, super doc Marty. He'll go in with a swoop, tell you the scoop, and won't keep any one out of the loop! If you need some sealant, meet their starlet... If you don't call her queen, you can call her Charlotte. And on your way out, need food for the belly? Insurance won't jip ya, they got front office Kelly! You see, it's not one. Not two, not three. It's no limit talent at the Abelar scene. Your teeth can't wait. Nor can your date. So get off your booty and see your new mates! Martin Abelar and crew.. the nonpareil best. Go, Go, Go! And I'll give it a rest.. (mic drop)
Scared to go to the dentist because of past painful experiences? Come here!! It's painless, relaxing and the results will astonish you.
Wonderful care by lovely caring people! Dr Abelar and his staff take time and care to explain what they are doing and discuss treatment plans. First class all the way!
Thank you for you good care. You are experts😄
Always enjoy my time here as patient and friend. Over 3 decades of satisfaction!
I had three crowns replaced. They are beautiful. Absolutely no pain. Great doctor and super staff.
We have had Dr. Abelar as our dentist for 20+ years and have always Had nothing but first class service.
Dr. Abelar provided comprehensive professional services with a personal touch. The dental hygienist was thorough and knowledgeable. We are new to San Diego and will make Dr Abelar our family dentist.
No pain. Plenty gain.
My experience was excellent. Dr. Abelar is very professional and can do this work in his sleep. Seriously though... he corrected the job of a previous dentist and made the impossible look great. Pam is also excellent as she always explains the steps of what she is doing and why, which I love. She makes me want to strive to get 2 not 4 on my gums (for those who know what those numbers mean regarding your teeth). Excellent dentist office with great staff. They are all really good and the lady who manages the front is absolutely amazing with great organization skills and customer service!
Outstanding experience from experts that care about their patients and their craft.
I f lol and broke my front tooth. I called and was seen the same day. I have a beautiful new front tooth. I've been with Dr Abelar close to 25 years. If his clinic moves, I'll only see him for all my dental needs.
Always a great experience. The whole office treats you like family.
I developed a fear of the dentist after my jaw was broken about 10 years ago. I went through a lot of traumatic surgeries, nerve damage, and dental visits. Due to this, I avoided the dentist like the plague for years, resulting in a lot of neglect/damage. Everyone here is amazing and they make the experience as painless as possible. Only complaint would be that it is very expensive - but, you get what you pay for!
Friendly staff ! Loved my hygienist !
Dr. Abelar and his staff are wonderful. It is a very friendly, and accommodating office. I am very happy with my experience.
Dr. Abelar and his staff are highly trained, personable and provide a positive experience.
Excellent service, most professional staff I have ever experienced, very caring, I experienced no discomfort, and had excellent results.
Very professional, extremely clean, latest equipment, staff very friendly, welcoming .
Excellent results with my new porcelain veneers! Not only is my smile improved, but so is my bite. Everyone in the office is courteous and focused on patients' needs. I would highly recommend Dr. Abelar and his staff.
Beautiful, and friendly environment. At 45 i have always been afraid of the dentist Dr. Abelar made me fill extremely comfortable. I would not go any other place.
Very professional, highly caring, gentle approach and easy dental cleaning experience. If you want to keep or improve your teeth, go see Dr. Abelar for a consult. Plus, he has so much experience and the very latest equipment.
Charlotte is an excellent dental assistant. She is a perfectionist.
When Jody cleans my teeth, my tongue goes into overdrive examining the now perfectly smooth surfaces she creates. Then I get my "marching orders" for the next 90 days on areas I need to focus on to improve my gum health. I am delighted in every sense of the word with Jody Sanders.
Professional and welcoming.
Great loved Jody for hygienist.
Chalk up another pain-free cleaning by Jody!
When a professional has earned trust and consistently does a wonderful job the expense of the procedure becomes less of a concern. Thankfully I don't have to fly for every doctors appointment. This provider is worth the air and hotel expense . As always thanks again. Barb
Absolutely supportive, compassionate and highly skilled care.
What can I say? I had another excellent experience with one of the best dental technicians ever. Jody did a great job.
Quick, pain-free and always professional.
Awesome! Thanks Doc.
Thank you so much for replacing my broken temporary! This was an unexpected event but Dr Abelar and staff were able to replace it on short notice. Greatly appreciated!
great experience, Irene is simply the best hygienist!
Always feel relaxed, Jodie does a great job!
Dr Abelar is special along with a an excellent staff who really care about their patients and will do whatever it takes to resolve any dental issues.
I had a dental emergency and Dr. Abelar was able to get me in quickly and fixed the problem very quickly. Great experience.
Thanks for support and thoughtful effort in figuring out best plan of action
I have been going to see Dr. Abelar for more than 10 years now. He is extremely experienced and knowledgeable. He is the best dentist in San Diego.
I have been a patient of Dr. Abelar's for nearly 20 years. Through this period of time, I have referred all of my friends and family to him. He is unquestionably the best dentist in San Diego, and I would trust my teeth to no one else. His experience, professionalism, attention to detail, and expertise are truly unsurpassed. I have undergone an array of procedures with Dr. Abelar, and I have never been disappointed, dissatisfied, or otherwise displeased. I have always left extremely happy and grateful for his impeccable work. Dr. Abelar is also an exceptionally kind, gracious, and courteous individual who goes well above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that you are satisfied with your experience with him.
Premium experience every time!
As always my experience was quick, easy and pain free!
Always a warm and friendly atmosphere. Never feel like they are in a hurry to get you in and out.
My experiences over the many years I have been coming to see Dr Abelar have all been absolutely remarkable! The staff are all very professional yet they make you feel right at home. Dr Abelar somehow is able to take away my fear of Dentists and consistently does a tremendous job! Thank you !
Always exceptional service and staff.
Fabulous.. Dr. Abelar is the ONLY dentist to see. You won't be disappointed.
I don't know how long I have been going to Dr. Abelar and his team. A long time. Let's not think about it. It will only remind me of my age. To the important stuff.... Doc is the man. I have always had a pleasant experience with him. Fortunately for me, I haven't had to see him a lot. Why? Because I have the best hygienist on the planet. I'm pretty sure I can go ahead and assume she's the best in the milky way galaxy, too. Jody, Jody, Jody... my favorite healthcare provider - period. Takes care of my teeth with the most comprehensive cleanings ever. She's a joy to be around and makes the time go by quickly and painlessly (as a masochist, I enjoy pain in the dental chair though.. so YMMV). I have a really hot wife. I wouldn't have her with messed up teeth. Seriously. Imagine Pitt or Clooney or Cooper with messed up teeth. Makes a difference, right? And I'm somewhat of a troll, too. But with nice teeth. Jody is the reason I have a hot wife. Thank you, Jody and the entire Abelar crew. A+++++++++++. Can't say it enough.
Always a good experience with confidence that I am well taken care of.Jodi did a great job as always. Special appreciation to Kelly. Like the way the billing is set up and explained.Very professional.Good work Dr. Abelar
My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Abelar for almost 16 years and will continue for many more. Great Doctor, Staff and Office and since I know you so well - update your website so it reflects the look of your state-of-the-art practice! :-)
Excellent. Would recommend to my friends.
Everything went great - as usual! Dr Abelar and his staff ( Charlotte, Jody, Kelly) are all awesome !! Could not ask for any better care ! I have total confidence in him and his entire staff - they're great ! I highly recommend him!
Jody defines excellence. She is peerless as a hygienist. I am privileged to be in her care.
Dr Abelar is a rock star. I wouldn't trust my teeth to anyone else.
Jody is the best dental hygienist I've had!! She educates and encourages her patients to keep their teeth & gums in the best condition possible. Dr. Abelar is highly experienced. When it comes to your smile or desire to make a good first impression, you want to consult this professional dental group.
I was very impressed with the beautiful office when I first walked in. The front desk lady, Kelly is the first person and the last person one sees in this gorgeous office. It's great when one walks into an office for the first time to meet a lovely lady as Kelly as she has a beautiful smile and a friendly personality. She takes care of all the billing and setting appointments. The office has state of the art technology. Dr. Abelar is very professional and all business! He was totally focused, fast, and was overall excellent when he changed my silver fillings to white! He is very intelligent and I feel confident in him in as a dentist. I absolutely love Charlotte! She not only is my friend from 7th grade, but she was the one who recommended this beautiful office which is conveniently located in my neighborhood of work and home. Charlotte has great a great bedside manner and accommodates me with a pillow for my neck every time I sit in the dentist's chair. She is always making sure I feel comfortable every time I come to visit. Charlotte and Dr. Abelar work great together, they both even made me feel like a Queen after they "crowned" and saved my tooth! Jody the dental hygienist has cleaned my teeth twice already and both times I met with her she always makes me feel comfortable and at home. She gave me great tips on how to keep my teeth clean. I highly recommend Dr. Abelar and his staff. They make me feel beautiful and like a rock star every time I come to visit!

Jody keeps my pearly whites shine and calls me prior to remind me to bring in my night guard to be thourghly cleaned Dr Abelar's staff our the finest in dental care. I'm so lucky I have the best dental care professionals Thank you
Dr. Abelar and Jodi are both experienced professionals yet visits with them are overall such a pleasant experience that it doesn't feel like I've just been to the dentist!
Great office and Hygienst Jody!
I love both Dr. Abelar and Jodi! Very thorough, very professional and state of the art service. All five of us in our family have been long time, very happy patients.
Happy experience having new implants placed. Feels great, looks great. So happy!
Jodi always does a great job. For this visit a had a couple of stained teeth that now look great!
Jody is the best I Had a great cleaning - she also noted I may have a TMJ issue she noticed - which appears to have returned - so she referred me to see Dr Abelar We Also discussed the possibility of veneers after my Invisalign treatment is complete -- good input as my teeth are starting to thin She does a great job and Is much more knowledgeable than any other dental hygienists I've ever encountered! Highly recommended
Great routine cleaning!!! She was professional, sweet and very accommodating.
As always a very professional visit, friendly, quality services, and informative if you have questions we have been patients of Dr.Abelar for 30 years and have had no reason to look elsewhere.!! 5 Stars
Very professional, team was very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Abelar did a great job, I was very impressed.
My new crowns are a big improvement beautiful and comfortable. Dr.Abelar is the best ! I've been going to him for 20+ years.
I refer all my friends and family to Dr.abelar , he is truly the best dentist in San Diego . The staff is all very professional and caring when it comes to each patient's needs. Thank you for taking such great care of my husband and I .
Always the best! Jody does great work keeping my teeth in my mouth!
Another top flight professional session. Jodie is an outstanding Dental Technician who knows her job and how to do it with a minimum of discomfort for the patient.
I had an appointment for a cleaning on 8/29/16. I was going to give Jodi a flourishing review, but after reading the reviews on record I realize that anything that I may have to say would pale in comparison. Not only that, but I believe she needs more stars to adequately describe her ability and especially her personality. I look forward to my next visit not only for the cleaning but especially for the face time.
Jody really makes it a point to connect with her patients and make sure they're comfortable. Every appointment is both efficient and pleasant. Also, she plays great music! We were jammin' to Beyonce today.
Very courteous, very professional and very up to date on current state of the art. I'm always thankful for people with these skill levels.
Had my cleaning done by Josie on Friday. She is very knowledgeable, professional and gentle. Would highly recommend her, Jody or Irene for your hygiene appointment. I didn't see Dr. Abelar at this appointment, but have great confidence in his skills.
Everyone in the practice is very thorough and considerate. Dr Abelar has a wonderful team: everyone is very personable, professional, and they are all comitted to providing the highest quality care. Jody is fantastic!
I always look forward to my dental appointments with Dr. Abelar, Jodi and team - excellent, proactive care to maintain healthy teeth, fun and friendly environment, and I always feel better following treatment. I give the them five stars plus.
Charlotte is a true technical professional. Her skills masking my gums for a tooth whitening proceedure was perfect. Absolutely no 'hot spots' where the whitening solution infiltrated the gums. And most importantly, all of my natural teeth came out many shades whiter. I have total confidence in Charlotte.
I always have a positive experience when I visit Dr. Abelar. I'm always at ease and never feel pain, thanks to his very gentle demeanor.
At about 2:00 pm my crown had come out. I immediately called Dr. Abelar's office to see if they could take me that day to have it adhered. The receptionist was very helpful and sympathetic and was able to fit me in a few hours later. Dr. Abelar and his technician were very efficient and wasted no time in getting my old crown adhered. I am so grateful they had the flexibility to take me with such little notice. I was on my way home, (smile fully restored) a little after 5'pm. I call that excellent service!
My hygienist, Jodi, has literally saved me from gum disease. Dr. Abelar is the best dentist I've experienced in my 65 years. I've been with him and his excellent staff nearly 30 years.
Jody is a peerless dental hygienist. She 'sets the bar' for professional excellence. Whenever I think of 'fee for service' I use Jody an example of value. I cannot think of one other service provider, in any other discipline, that compares favorably. Moreover -- Jody is a delightful lady in every sense of the word.
I had my teeth cleaned by Josie, for the first time. She was fantastic and I learned a lot from her. I've always loved the Abelar team. They've been wonderful for the 30+ years that I've been going there.
From structural abnormalities, cracked and broken teeth to failed root canals, this highly talented cosmetic dentist has managed to diagnose, recommend and treat all to perfection and if it is not within his scope of work, his recommendations are always spot on. Thank you Dr. Abelar, Jody, and Charlotte and Thank you to the Doctor(s) that were recommended to review CT's, remove and implant my new tooth.
My double crown replacement went about as well as could be expected. Not fun, but well done.
Came back in to have a cracked tooth prepped for a crown. Overall good experience from a highly professional office. Thanks to all the staff involved.
This is "THE" best dental office---EVER!!! I am a retired dentist. I know and understand quality. Dr Abelar is the best that I know. That is why I go there and pay regular fees as everyone else. The office staff are always friendly and helpful! They become as family over a few visits. My friends are jealous of my smile and have said so! Haha ---- Thanks, Dr, Abelar!!
Easy dental experience. Had my teeth cleaned by a highly experienced hygienist, Jody. She suspected a cracked tooth that was evaluated by the Dr. and an appointment to remedy the problem was scheduled for 5 days later. All staff were very knowledgeable and highly professional.
I have anxiety relative to dental work whether cleaning or work being done. This group is your answer if you experience same. From time you walk in the door until visit is concluded the staff is simply the best I have ever encountered. I feel like I've made friends as we'll as have my dental needs taken care of. I am moving out of area and plan on keeping my dentist! In San Diego ! Can't get better than that.
Jodi is off scale wonderful! Dr. Abelar is my hero! Kelly rocks! Thank you to the most outstanding professional dental office in San Diego! I am a client for life! 🤗😎
Always look forward to seeing Jody, she's always fun and informative and really gets the old pearlies clean!
Jody was extremely helpful in addressing my periodontal issues. She is very knowledgeable and I feel she gives me excellent advice for my dental care.
I'll say this after every appointment.. Jody is the best healthcare provider I've ever had. Teeth are better cared for and cleaned by her than any hygienist on the planet. When the day comes where I can't see her every 6 months, my teeth will give up all hope and start pounding soda to drown their sorrows.
Just stopped in to pick up some perio guard. We have been using this product for years and feel certain that it has helped keep our teeth healthy. My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Abelar and Jody for many years and couldn't image every seeing anyone else.
From my very first consultation with Dr. Abelar to completion of the replacement of my upper teeth with gorgeous, natural looking porcelain crowns - my experience and aesthetic outcome could not have been better. Although I live in Northern California, the flights to San Diego to have Dr. Abelar as my asthetic dentist were well worth the travel. I would rate him as an unequivocal 10!
Can't say it was fun getting cavities filled but Dr Abelar was quick and efficient.
Very professional and efficient help on emergency basis. Thank you very much
Josie is very caring and professional. Attitude makes all the difference in the world.
Another delightful time at the dentist's. I always enjoy the laughs and attention and always come away feeling better looking! Thanks to Dr. A., Jody, and staff! Pat Woods
Another great experience at Dr. Abelar's dental office! Jody is the best hygienist, Dr. Abelar is so knowledgeable and talented, and their new team member at the front desk was friendly and fit right in to their office!
Great experience. Irene is an awesome hygienist, very personable and great at what she does. Dr. Abelar is the best, very thorough and honest.
Outstanding! Thank you.
Dr.Abelar is truly the best dentist in San Diego . I have ongoing health issues , and the staff and dr.Abelar are so caring and understanding to my special needs . If your looking for a new dentist this is the place to go .
Extremely professional, state of the art dentistry. As a former dental hygienist, I look for top quality in my dental treatment. From the receptionist to the dental hygienist to the dentist and his assistants, I have found it Dr Abelar's practice.
Jodi's care and attention was five start as usual. She takes the time to check carefully and tells me the steps I need to take to keep my teeth in good condition.
The environment, staff, and Dr. Abelar all impact as very professional yet warm and engaging. I am impressed with Dr. Abelar's thoughtful analysis of my aesthetic concerns regarding the changes in the appearance of my teeth and his clearly stated explanation of how he would proceed to resolve the issues that have developed through time. I am looking forward to getting the treatment plan underway eventhough it will involve flying down to San Diego from Northern California where I live. I didn't choose Dr. Abelar for convenience, my choice is based on his skills.
Everyone was very efficient and made me feel comfortable through procedure. Thank you for seeing me in such short notice.
Outstanding, as usual.
Dr. Abelar and his team to the rescue again! Without going into the painful details, Dr. Abelar was there for me in my time of dental despair. He, his team and lab came through like champs in very short order. Whether an annual check-up or an emergent incident, there are no other folks that I'd trust with my mouth as I do Dr. Abelar and his supportive staff.
Everyone knows when you find a good Dentist you never want to leave them. That is how I feel about Martin P. Abelar DDS. I have been a patient of his for about 18 years. My teeth are a testament of his great work. His office staff has always been so nice and friendly to me and my husband. What I really appreciate the most is, that his office values my time. If my appointment time is at 3pm, then I'm in with the Dentist no later than 3:00 give or take 5 minutes. There is never a heard of people in the office reception area due to good appointment scheduling. I appreciate that as well. Thank you all for such great work! G. Pollard
Ever so accommodating! I had a bad traffic problem that caused me to be 15 minutes late for a cleaning/exam appointment. I called from the freeway and they told me not to worry but to come anyway. Jodie called and changed her next appointments to allow for my problem and still not inconvenience the following patients. How great is that?? AND, no one was upset at all--- :) :) A thorough exam showed that a suspected problem was nothing to be concerned about. YEA!!! This is like my family. Always accepting and always acting to my best interests--- wait--- that's BETTER than my family! haha
Doc it was another great experience even with you drilling on my teeth! Great staff and enjoyable. I am glad you are not only my dentist but my friend!
Always have a positive experience with Charolette and Dr. Abelar! They always take great care of me!,
Today was a simple teeth cleaning. I always feel confident that Jody knows what to look for in preventive maintenance. She points out minor things that could have the potential to become serious if they are not taken care of. True professionals!
Hi, yes I am very pleased with my treatment and dental care by Dr Abelar and his staff, in fact, I have already referred a friend and she is now also a patient of Dr Abelar's office! Thank you Joe Loredo
I'll let you know after my next appointment.
Preventing dental disease is very important. Jodi and Dr Abelar found a small decay that would not have manifested for months. The tooth will be filled Monday. Excellent dental care. Thanks!!!
My appointment for a crown replacement went beautifully yesterday. Dr Abelars office is so comfortable and we have worked so well together over the years of major dental reconstruction. I feel quite at home in his office with such a friendly staff and Dr. Abelars superb skill and efficiency. I still see him even though I now spend most of my time in Oregon. It is easy to schedule on my trips to S D for family, friends and business. Neal Hribar
Jody is so amazing I will not let anyone else clean my teeth. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
A visit to Dr. Abelar's office is like a visit to grandma's home! It is always a comfortable thing! The staff is ultra friendly and quite efficient. Dr. Abelar in my opinion is probably THE best dentist in San Diego! His technical workmanship is excellent and he is thoughtful, caring and GENTLE. I recommend Dr. Abelar to anyone and everyone. One visit and you will be coming back with your family and friends also!
Great dental experience and attention to detail and extremely knowledgeable Great staff Extremely efficient Always feel like they go the extra mile I feel very confident in their care!! Highly recommended
great friendly service very professional
Very pleased with Dr. Abelar. Very thorough and detailed work. Gave me extra pain medicine when repairing a broken tooth--said he did not want me to suffer. Would recommend him for your dentist. Kind Staff. On time.
Your work was excellent. I will continue to see Dr. Abelar as my dentist.
hi Jody was great - very informative and thorough. i learned more about my teeth than ever before!
Painless and fabulous!!!!
Jody is awesome!!!!
I was so very pleased and impressed with my first visit to see Dr. Abelar for an evaluation. His attention to detail is amazing and he's very thorough. Charlotte was also very attentive and helpful, as was the whole staff. I never thought I'd look forward to replacing a crown - but I already know I'm in the best hands ! Highly recommended !
All the staff here are wonderful. The studio is exquisitely spotless, tranquil, and doesn't feel as sterile as many other dentistry offices...it doesn't have that dentist smell. All the chairs are set up with client's privacy in mind. My technician was so sweet. She was friendly but not overly talkative, and explained every detail of what she was doing to me. She periodically checked in with me to see how I was doing: thank you! I was greeted by name with a huge smile from everyone- the receptionist, Dr.Abelar, and my technician, even though I am a rather new patient. I HATE that horrid gritty toothpaste that they use but she made sure the unpleasantness of this experience was minimized for me. Bottom line = Super fine work. Delicate, thoughtful, comfortable, with a meticulous attention to detail.Thanks team Abelar!
Jodi is amazing!! I never look forward to getting my teeth cleaned but Jodi is gentle and efficient and makes it a pleasant experience!
I always have a positive experience at Dr. Abelar's office. I never wait for cleaning and Jodi is the best!! She is so personable and adds to the positive experience. I have been a patient for over 30 years, would never ever consider going to anyone else!!
Always efficient and accommodating
Great as ever
I have been going to Dr. Abelar for over 10 years. Dr. Abroad, and his staff especially Jodi have been incredibly professional and spectacular at their trade. I go to Jodi for my cleanings, and I always leave feeling my teeth are in the best condition. Dr. Abelar has done my Invisalign which was an awesome experrience, and now I have a beautiful smile. In addition, I've also had a couple cavities, and as much as I hate getting cavities, Dr. Abelar makes the process painless and easy. Very very happy with this dentist and his staff.
Great. Irene is a thorough friendly technician who clearly cares about her patients. Thanks!
Great people, great service what more could you ask
Dr Abelar and staff are fantastic! Could not be happier with out come and quality of work.
Jody was great as usual. She is thorough and catches problems before they cause pain. Irving tragen
Amazing experience! We are so glad we found your offices. Thank you.
Great cosmetic and structural assessment by Dr Abelar ..and of course his sense of humor helps when one is anxious and babbles because they're anxious!.....We set a good game plan to address structural issues first and then cosmetic area...something I'd been thinking about for a long time ...Looking forward to that natural and lovely smile that Dr Abelar is known for! Ariela
Very gentle, no pain experience. Hands down the best staff. My dentist since 1989. Ill never change.
As always, Dr. Abelar and his team have taken care of my daughter and me putting smiles back on our faces. Thank you guys for your thoughtful care. Marti
Jodie always does a great job and I feel relaxed during my cleaning. I am usually a nervous patient but not with her and her professionalism! Thanks Jodie! Claude
Another great visit to Dr Abelar's office! Dr Abelar and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and take time to explain what they are doing.
Dr. Abelar and his team are absolutely the most professional and understanding people I have ever had the pleasure to interact with. I am the biggest "scardy cat" when it comes to seeing the dentist - I even sweat when I simply go for a cleaning. Let's just say I had a horrible dentist - he used to hit me around the mouth and face - when I was growing up. Dr. Abelar is gentle, informative and I trust him unconditionally. Jodi - my Dental Hygienist - is fabulous! I adore her! I highly recommend Dr. Abelar to everyone. His expertise is supreme and I am confident that he would not object to me calling him my friend. I actually love going to see him. I hope this is helpful to any and all individuals/families. You will be seeing the best!
Jodi is amazing not only as my Dental Hygienist but also as my friend over the years! I love her! In addition, Dr. Abelar always has a moment, and based on some consternation over issues I have, he is taking extra time to take care of my teeth and concerns! I love the front office and assistants - all the staff is warm and comforting! I am the biggest "scardy cat" you have ever met when it came to "going to the dentist" until I met Dr. Abelar, Jodi and his staff! Now I know what gentleness and caring is for dental care! A true off the charts 10!!
Yay Jody! The best!
I just love the office! I recently had them whiten my teeth. It was easy and I am very pleased with the results! Thank you!
With today's healthcare delivery system difficult to navigate, emergency care near impossible to receive on a timely basis and my growing frustration with dealing with chronic medical issues, Dr. Abelar and his staff of thoughtful, professional and kind people along with cohorts in complimentary dental fields helped me remain positive during a very difficult week. In and out of procedures, ER's and doctor's offices, Dr. Abelar was able to get me emergent dental and periodontal care inbetween these visits within two days. He even spoke to me from the ER to consult on the type of antibiotic necessary for a mouth infection in order to prevent further heart related illness for which I was being treated. I wish all Doctors in every area of practice and their nurses and technicians could be as patient focused and compassionate as Dr. Abelar. I would trust my life in his hands, no less my dental, periodental, and aesthetic dental care. A million thank yous are not enough!
Dr. Abelar is extremely thorough and knowledgeable.
I was very pleased with my crown procedure. Dr. Abelar is very patient and meticulous in his work. My procedure began promptly at the appointment time. Charlotte is extremely capable in assisting Dr. Abelar. I find the office to be run very professionally and efficiently. I would highly recommend Dr. Abelar.
It is never fun going to the denist office, but Dr. Abelar and his staff make it as pleasant as possible. All employees are very friendly and helpful. Jody does an outstanding job cleaning teeth. She always gives me compliments and/or advice. Dr. Abelar always comes in to check my teeth and asks if there are any problem areas. He is very professional, but friendly. I have no intentions of every changing dentist. Dr. Abelar is The Best!
For 33 years Dr. Abelar has been doing great work on me and my family. Appreciate his professionalism along with his team. Frank B.
great as always.....I want to say that I will miss Jamie's smiling face and efficiency.....she is amazing!!!
Great communication! I was particularly impressed that Jody called me to let me know that her appointment prior to mine was running late. I love the text reminders, confirmation, etc. This makes it easy to respond quickly.
Awesome service from Dr. Abelar and his entire staff.
My apptmt. with Dr. Abelar was perfect as usual. Quick and to the point. Best dentist in the San Diego!!!
Thanks for being so helpful and supportive :-)
I have been a patient of Dr. Abelar for over 20 years. Have always appreciated his and his staff's genuine concern for me while maintaining a professional atmosphere. Keep up the good work! Don't change a thing.
I am a new patient who came in based off a coworker reference. I learned much more from Dr Abelar in ten minutes than in all my previous dental experiences combined. I was given a heads up on things to look out for in my own and young children's oral health that could have long term medical effects. I was not thrilled with the twenty minute wait to be taken back to a chair or the five minutes once there to be seen. Also the gal that sat me down in the chair began a conversation with me while staring at her computer screen with her back to me and seemed mildly annoyed when I didn't respond, but I didn't know she was trying to speak with me. Front desk was warm and welcoming and helpful by phone on what to do to fill out new patient forms.
Jody Sanders is simply nonpariel. Her preparation before you arrive in the chair, to the exit instructions that insure you have a sustainable oral care plan, bear the unmistakable marks of a perfectionist. I am the privileged one to be in her care. Rick Brown Carlsbad, Ca
Outstanding staff, painless visit!! highly recommend Dr. Abelar, and Jody she works miracles keeping my teeth in my mouth.
Jody is the absolute best healthcare provider I have ever had in my life. I have only the best things to say about her and her work!
Staff was incredible and Dr. Abalar took plenty of time to answer my questions and concerns.
Very friendly and professional office. Dr. Abelar took his time to carefully evaluate my situation. Highly satisfied with visit.
Dr. Abelar and his entire staff are the best! My comfort was super critical to me (inherent fear of pain) and Dr. Abelar did not let me down! I always recommend Dr. Abelar to anyone looking for the best dentistry in town!
As always Jody is the best hygienist I have ever had.
Great dental office - everyone there CARES! Thank you so much for your help with all my dental needs.
My appointment was right on time, which I always appreciate. Dr. Abelar installed my new crown perfectly and it feels great. The folks at his office are warm and friendly and they make me feel comfortable. Unlike other dental offices I have been to, there is a feeling of calm and peace which is important to me. Neal Hribar
I always enjoy visiting Dr. Abelar's office! Jamie is always friendly when I check in, Jody is one of the best hygienists in San Diego and always does such a good job of cleaning my teeth, and the office is pleasant and Dr. Abelar is committed to quality.
Jody did her usual expert job of cleaning my teeth. Her personality made the time fly by.
Dr. Abelar is fantastic, so accommodating.
I see Jody three times a year for cleaning and I really appreciate all her advice and so enjoy chatting through all the teeth cleaning episodes! Dr. Abelar is great too, I had a little chip on a tooth and he smoothed that down, and that was so nice of him. And I should not forget Jaime, who always has a smile and makes me feel at home. Thank you all, for all you do!
As always, a great experience. Jody does an amazing job in teeth cleaning. I have sensitivity area's and she is very careful to make sure I have no pain:) I moved to Orange County two years ago and drive down for my appointments. People try to talk me into "their" dentist in my neighborhood, but as long as Dr. Abelar is practicing Dentistry I'll be his patient. He's the BEST in the business. On a side note.... the billing office had in incorrect billing address. (a place I hadn't lived in 4 years) and there was an old outstanding balance that I was unaware of. The Office Manager worked with me on the payment, but not before she made me feel like I was trying to dodge-out on my bill. That was kind of a bummer, but nothing that would spoil my opinion of the office.
Just recently discovered Dr. Abelar and his great staff. Very professional, courteous, flexible and of course- most important - excellent dental care! Would highly recommend to others!
My experience having a replacement crown by Dr. Abelar was amazing. I doubt there is a better dentist in San Diego County. The process was painless and the turn around fast. Dr. Abelar has the most "to the moment" equipment available; I loved moving into 21st Century dentistry!
Friendly, clean, & very helpful. Thanks!
Dr Abelar is the absolute BEST!! His unique ability to put together shades of colors and shapes that match the individuals complexion, eyes, and facial form makes him the "go-to" cosmetic dentist in San Diego!. He has been my dentist for over 10 years (and still is) and I always get compliments from others about how wonderful my smile looks! Thanks, Doc!! I am a dentist myself and I can go to any dentist that I choose. With my knowledge of dentistry as a basis, and with his proven results for all to see, Dr Abelar is THE best choice!
As always friendly wonderful staff with quality professional care.
Always a pleasant experience.
Dr. Abelar is almost like an A to Z dentist who can help his patients (myself included) with many types of dental care and needs through various stages in life. His expertise in aesthetic dentistry is very important because among other things, I'd also like to have beautiful and healthy teeth and gums.
They fit me in quickly for an appointment to fix a chipped front tooth and as always, , Dr Abelar did a beautiful job.
Exceptional in latest technologies in dentistry. Plus the most friendly and knowledgable staff I have met in San Diego.
I have probably only written a couple of reviews in the past few years, but I believe Dr. Abelar and his staff certainly deserve a great review from the services I received in his office. Dr. Abelar specializes in Aesthetic Dentistry, Restorative and Cosmetic. First I only had 4 remaining upper teeth, and they were not in the best of shape. His proposal to extract these 4 teeth and implant 4 posts to attach a permanent set of upper teeth was a great recommendation. I was reluctant to go along with this proposal but after weeks of having them in place I can honestly say I am glad I completed the procedure. From the time you enter the office and are greeted by Jamie, it will be a great experience. Dr. Abelar is very meticulous and made sure I was happy and that my teeth fit properly. I do not believe you will find a more caring dentist office and staff in San Diego, than Dr. Martin Abelar. PS...Jody, the hygienist, will keep your teeth in good shape and pain free visits also..... Clyde Davenport
Very friendly and helpful office staff. Easy to make/change appointments. My son had a custom mouth guard fabricated by Dr. Abelar for sports. It was an overall positive experience. Thank you.
temp crowns seem fine. looking forward to the perms... :)
Always first class. Jodi is super
Jody and the staff are excellent. I always have a great experience.
I love Jody. She is really thorough
The best dental office in town! Dr A is the best! The staff are extremely professional always so gracious when I step in the front door it's like I'm at home! And Jody is by far my favorite hygienist, I will end by saying this is the cleanest decorated dental office I have ever been in, everything is up to date and new. I will never leave or change dental offices.
Unfortunately I waited 9 months between cleanings. Jody worked diligently to get me back to that amazing feeling when all is well within my mouth. Perhaps underappreciated in the main, Jody has excellent "tool feel" while cleaning. You can't teach this IMO. She is one-of-one displaying a true gift and deftness of touch. This balance of properties defines excellence. I am delighted to be her client. Rick Brown Carlsbad, CA
Everything was great. Thank you for the "salt" tip. Everyone is lovely. Thank you or a great experience, I am usually very scared. Thank you.
Many thanks to my dental hygienist. She was very gentle and thorough. See you (Irene) again in a few months.
Jody always does an amazing job cleaning my teeth!
Dr. Abelar and his staff are top notch and I would highly recommend them to family and friends. They are wonderful at making patients feel comfortable, communicate extremely well and do great dentistry. I am thrilled with their staff and have always had a great experience both with cleanings and more extensive dental work. If you don't love your dentist or are looking for a new office you need to check out Dr. Abelar and his team.
Thanks Jody for helping me keep the few teeth I still have!!! I appreciate the positive support even when I am not as faithful in my regime as I should be. I am motivated by it and it helps me to take better care of my teeth.
I have been to Dr. Abelar's office just a few times this year and have seen a noticeable improvement in the appearance of my teeth and gums. I'm grateful that Dr. Abelar is also experienced in aesthetic dentistry.
My recent visit to your office was, as per usual, very efficiently and professionally handled. I appreciate the support and technical capabilities of Dr. Abelar and each of his technicians.
Stopped in today to get my teeth whitened and I am extremely happy with the results! Jamie was able to sneak me in for a last minute appointment and I was in and out within an hour! So much easier than using the over the counter white strips every night for a week plus! Charlotte was so sweet and made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire process! I always recommend Dr. Abelar, Aesthetic Dentistry to all my friends and will definitely suggest that they try their teeth whitening as well. I'll be back in a few months for my semi-annual teeth cleaning :)
I've been going to Dr. Abelar for over 10 years. Jodi has been my hygienist as well. I can't say enough good things about this dentist and his staff. Recently I had Invisalign done with Dr. Abelar, and I couldn't be more excited about my results! Jodi is also amazing! When she cleans my teeth, she cleans my teeth! I would have to say that my teeth and gums are in the best condition and I have this dentist and Jodi to thank for that!!
Five stars to hygenist Sue - such gentle hands! Two small grumbles - I really dislike the muzak in the waiting room, And if I have to spend 5 or 10 minutes waiting there after arriving on time for my appointment, I will resolve to come a few minutes late next time.
Awesome staff as always.
I absolutely ADORE this office and every team member! At my first visit, I was immediately "at ease" -- the environment is professional, friendly, relaxed, and inviting. Dr. Abelar is affable and thorough. Jodie, his dental hygienist, is a dream! Of course, the office manager, Jamie is warm & welcoming...I am spreading the word!
Dr. Abelar's office is FABULOUS! Wonderful team of professional and friendly people in a relaxed & inviting atmosphere. During my first visit, I was immediately "at ease" and will definitely recommend this dentistry office to everyone who will listen ;-)
My son recently had a custom mouthguard made by Dr. Abelar. We are so pleased with the high quality of the mouthguard. The office staff was consistently helpful, attentive and went out of their way to accommodate our schedules. The location is very convenient, it was easy to get an appt and an overall outstanding experience for our family. Thank you, Dr. Abelar and staff!!!
Very positive impression. Both Jamie and Charlotte were pleasant and professional.
Great treatment from Jodi!! Always a pleasant experience! The office and staff are just wonderful.
First time I was not afraid of the dentist. Dr. Abelar made me feel at ease. His bedside manor is very professional. Had a filling and have no problems. Great team. Great office.
Quick and pain free, always quality work!
My experience with Jody was fabulous. My teeth are clean and healthy. Jody educates me each and every time she cleans my teeth. Thank you Jody for teaching me to have a healthy mouth. See you in 6 months.
Just recently discovered Dr. Abelar and his great staff. Very professional, courteous, flexible and of course- most important - excellent dental care! Would highly recommend to others!
I would like to bring this entire office back to Japan! Dr. Abelar is the best doctor I've ever seen. His professionalism is beyond the best. And always I appreciate the office staff for their kindness.
My most recent experience with Dr. Abelar's office was for routine cleaning. Jody Sanders is the hygienist who performed the work, and has done so for over 10 years. She is the consummate professional and directly responsible for improving the health of my teeth and gums. She is both passionate and compassionate in helping me understand the best ways to care for my teeth and gums. My wife has been so impressed with the results I have achieved that she has adopted Jody's recommendations as well. Whenever I need restorative work, Dr. Abelar is not only a superb technician, but he is also an aesthetic artist. The combination of these two professionals is all you need for a lifetime of good dental health. Jack Hetzel
Great Dentist but only cuz of an amazing staff...j/k Dr. Abelar. :)
As usual the high point of my last four months.
As always the best service and treatment for my dental health.
always a great experience!
Fabulous. I had a tooth ache able to schedule an appointment within 24 hours. An adjustment made by Dr. Abelar rid me of discomfort. Thank You Dr. Abelar and staff
Dr. Abelar is a very proficient dentist, and the office staff are courteous at all times. I would definitely return for more dental enhancements soon, as it is my goal from now on to have teeth and gum that look perfect and well-functioning. I would also recommend anyone looking for a top dentist to make a call to the office of Dr. Martin P. Abelar.
Dr Abelar's office was very kind to get me in with a dental emergency. 9 years ago Dr. Abelar replaced a bridge in the front of my mouth the previous bridge I had for over 20 years. Unfortunately the new bridge broke several times which he kindly replaced at no charge to me. Recently, the bridge broke again and when I went into his office upset about it he quickly calmed me down and gave me options for another replacement. Dr Abelar was very kind and patient with me as was entire staff. I have been a long time patient of his and I did not want to go elsewhere until I had the opportunity to discuss my problem with first. He made thing right!!!!
Not afraid to get my teeth cleaned anymore. While not always a comfortable experience it is the most comfortable it's ever been. Hygienist is not the kind of personality that is critical. Has a nice kind touch when teaching appropriate dental care. I have a lot of dental work, crowns, permanent bridges, veneers etc. professional cleaning for me is a task for anyone . Thanks to Jody I think I will keep my smile a bit longer . Can't go wrong with this group. Even the people at the front desk make you want to stay and visit a while. Great customer service.

I always feel as though I am visiting a friends home when I go to Dr. Abelar's office. There is a feeling of friendship and comfort which is quite relaxing regardless of the procedures being done. It is so nice to get the BEST of dental care in such a caring environment.
Using high-tech dental equipment, Dr. Abelar meticulously removed my old crowns and took the impression for the new crowns. I was impressed with the technology, especially with the machine taking the impression of my teeth.

Dr Abelar has been my dentist for decades. He is the Best of the Best. He uses the latest techniques and equipment. He makes you feel comfortable and confident while he performs his magnificent work. I choose to stay with Dr. Abelar even though I am not covered by insurance. I could be covered if I chose a plan dentist.

Just the best there is. And the staff is first class. I've been going to o him over 23 years.
Dr. Abelar took care of a couple crowns. Everything was perfect. No wait, no pain and a great result. It is always the same in his office.
Competent, professional services of the highest quality, as per usual.
Always a pleasant and professional atmosphere. My exams and cleanings are thorough.
I already had a dentist but I wanted a second opinion about a cosmetic procedure, so I asked a friend and she recommended Dr. Abelor.

My wife and I moved to San Diego in 2000. After trying out several dentists in the area that we were not impressed with we finally found Dr. Abelar and could not be happier. We have referred more people to him than we can remember and as far as we know they all still see Dr. Abelar as well. Dr. Abelar's practice is a modern state-of-the-art facility and his entire staff from the periodontist we see, Jody to the office manager Jamie make the whole experience of going to a dentist very pleasant.
Dr. Abelar's smiles shows he practices cosmetic dentistry. Hope to see him soon!
Dr Abelar has done one crown for me and it has performed very well. I have managed to crack another molar and will be going back to him for the second crown. I recently went for cleaning and X-rays and Dr Abelar's staff was very pleasant and patient as I was running late due to traffic. They did not make me feel rushed and were ready for me when I arrived. The hygienist Jody is very experienced and knowledgeable. The office is very clean and well designed. I would recommend them to my family/friends and it is worth the drive.
Once again stellar service provided by the staff in Dr. Abelars office...I always feel at home when I enter the office and Jody once again did an amazing job with my teeth cleaning! Thanks you to everyone!:)
As is usually the case, I was attended to in a very professional and capable manner.
Best dental care and team ever- always thorough, fun and deliver excellent results!
Jody, as always, finds new ways to serve and delight me.
I truly love coming to this office . The staff is so caring and professional and DR.Abelar is the best dentist in San Diego . I would give them 10 stars if I could .
Best dentist in San Diego!
New crown is great. The procedure was easy and painless. The whole staff is great, and you I never have to wait.
Great attitudes, warm environment and extremely competent treatment.
Everyone that I met yesterday, was very pleasant and helpful. The only waiting time was for me to get my paperwork done, and the local anesthesia to set in.
Professional, quality service, as per usual.
Thanks to Dr. Abelar I have a new smile! My veneers are beautiful, and feel just like my own teeth. I only wish I had listened to him ten years ago when he suggested that I have this procedure done.
Superb care and results as always.
I had a teeth whitening procedure done and the results exceeded my expectations. My teeth look really great now.
My first visit with Jody for cleaning and I was scared silly . Hate this process because it usually involves pain and bad news. I have a lot of dental work and sensitive teeth. It was painless , quick and no bad news. She is really good with very kind disposition. Takes the scary away.
Dr. Abelar was caring, and a supreme expert in his filed.
Great office! Prompt, friendly service!
Jody is the finest dental hygienist. My teeth are well cared for!! She has educated me beautifully therefore I have a bright white smile. Thank you Jody
Great as usual!
Dr. Abelar did his usual stellar job. The filing was done precisely, without discomfort and quickly.
THe staff at this office always takes great care of me. AAlways a
I truly enjoy coming to this office !The staff is so nice ,caring and understanding to patients needs. Dr. Abelar is a great dentist . I recommend this office to anyone looking for a new dentist .
Dr Abelar is excellent. Works quickly and deftly, and relatively painlessly, and the results are good. Jody, hygenist, is really good, and carefully watches for emerging issues that need to be taken care of (like the repair to the filling done yesterday that had developed a little gap). Great that Dr A was able to fit me in right away to do the filling.
AAA - Awesome As Always
I always enjoy my visits to this office everyone is friendly and professional. Dr. Abelar is by far the best dentist I've had. He keeps learning and is up on all the new technology.
Excellent state-of-the-art work and incredibly warm staff!
Always enjoy my visit with the people and come away with clean teeth & gums thanks to Jody. Very serene place.
Jody is very thorough and my teeth feel great. She is kind and fun.
Thanks for exceeding my expectations!
I love this office! I'm always greeted with a smile at the door and a smile when I leave...Jody is the best hygienist I have ever experienced and Dr A. Is very thorough with his craft! I have gone through so many dentists and hygienists to finally find my happy place:) not to mention how spotless and clean this office is, I can't even rate it because you guys don't have a 12 on your scale...thank you for everything guys!!!:)
Everyone is very, very nice.....
Experience was very good. Jody is the best! I actually look forward to coming to my dental office.
Always a great experience!
Everything was first class as always.
Jamie was thorough and friendly as always. It's always a pleasure seeing and speaking with everyone in Dr. Abelar's office.. Most importantly I know my teeth are receiving excellent care!
Yay! Jody's great!!!
great experience, Dr. Abelar and his staff do a great job and really care about their patients.
The office staff is courteous and kind. Dr. Abelar is the best!
I love this practice! Not only is Dr. Abelar, extremely skilled and professional, I especially trust his expertise in cutting edge dental procedures, both medical and cosmetic. Patients are able to see their x-rays and scans on large TV screens while Dr. Abelar and his staff guide them through their individual concerns. All of his staff have been with him for a long time - and they are delightful!! Everyone in my family, including my children see him, and everyone that I have recommended has thanked me.
I required 2 overdue caps which resulted in 2 visits (less than 3 hours total time) and in the end a perfect fit. Very professional and great support staff (Margaret and Casey you ROCK!).
Ones choice in dentistry services is much like the selection of a restaurant in that each of us has a list of what's most important to them and that list will vary from person to person. Dr. Abelar's practice checks all my important boxes: cleanliness beginning at the front door and extending throughout the facility; competency of the staff, follow through, organization, accuracy and interpersonal skills are important; doctor's talents, skills and knowledge in the latest techniques and use of the most modern, up to date equipment are factors most important in dentistry to me. Dr. Abelar's off uses digital equipment, some of the most modern available, allowing for very accurate and precise procedures with little discomfort for the patient. When necessary the doctor will use the iTero Oral Digit Scanner to produce a 3D depiction of your entire jam and teeth. Combine all those factors with a very skilled support staff and Dr. Abelar's talents in aesthetic dentistry and you have my choice as one of the best in San Diego.
I've been going to Dr. Abelar for several years. The doctor and his staff are professional, friendly and caring. When I find a doctor or dentist that I like, I stay with them.
The best Dentist and staff. Always helpful and informative. My new night guard fits fabulously. I slept thru the night, woke with no jaw tension Amazing. Once again perfection.
Very professional atmosphere. Hospital or better levels of clean and well organized. Staff has been with doctor for many years and are extremely knowledgeable. Some what on the higher side of the cost scale, it's worth it knowing you're in expert hands.
always great service and friendly staff.
Always a pleasure to meet with Jody! She is the best.
Dr. Abelar is the best!
Thank you Dr Abelar Jody and staff for teaching me how to maintain a pretty smile and good mouth hygeine
Marty and his staff are professional, highly experienced and exceptional at making you feel welcome from the minute you walk in the door! If you want your dental work done right the first time and as pain/stress-free as possible, go consult with this group. Many of the key personnel have been working together 25 years or more! I can't imagine going anywhere else.
Friendly and professional.
As pleasant as replacing 2 crowns can be. Dr. Marty is the best dentist!!!
Dr. Abelar and his team are the best in the business. I have lived in various parts of San Diego, and regardless of how far I am from Dr. Abelar's office, I will always make the drive their, as I simply don't trust anyone else with my teeth.
As usual, a wonderful experience. Who enjoys getting their teeth cleaned? I do. Thanks to Jody Sanders,
Great professional service!
The most amazing staff and Dentust!! My pearly whites thank them profusely!
Just like Dr. Abelar, his personnel are knowledgeable, competent and professional. And his practice facility is state-of-the-art!
Absolutely love this office! Jody my oral hygienist is the best! Dr. abelar is the coolest dentist and all the staff are totally sweet and accommodating...I couldn't be any happier:)
The staff is outstanding. .
Jodi did a great job.
EXCELLENT FRIENDLY PROFESSIONAL SERVICE AS USUAL. THE ATTENTION BY THE STAFF IS SUPERB ABD YOU GET YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN PLAIN LANGUAGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY.
A great cleaning!
fantastic experience, Dr. Abelar is very good and his staff take great care in customer service.
As per usual, the services I received at Dr. Abelar's practice were provided in a very professional and competent manner.
10 stars. The best staff anywhere!! Thanks, Jody. I highly recommend Dr. Abelar. I've been his patient since 1985. I would never consider another dentist.
AWESOME... OK, I wouldn't compare going to the dentist like going to your favorite restaurant and having an amazing meal BUT if you can go to the dentist with a broken tooth and have it fixed the same day WITHOUT any pain, that is AWESOME!
Great and friendly service! The entire team are professional and awesome people. Thanks Dr.Abelar and crew. I appreciate all that you do!
Staff was amazing and went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable at all times.
As usual the attention was outstanding and very timely. The review was done with precision and the cleaning, without discomfort. Jody did a fine job and Dr. Abelar took the time to help me deeal a problem with the lining of teh upper partial.
I had my teeth whitened last Wednesday and I am thrilled with the results. My teeth have not looked this good for years!
Dr. Abelar and his staff are the best of the best! Would not even consider going to any other dentist!
My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Abelar for almost 15 years and he and his staff have always provided excellent care and service. Jody and Margaret are both fantastic and are very skilled and knowledgeable in their own right! Because they have been working with Dr. Abelar for so many years, it is nice to have that continuity of experience among the core team. We never hesitate to recommend Dr. Abelar and his team to our friends and colleagues who are in need of a good dentist. From the moment you walk in for your appointment everyone is warm and welcoming. We've never had to wait more than a few minutes in the waiting room for our appointments and all of the procedures (whether a routine cleaning or getting a crown after a root canal) have always been of the highest quality and are done perfectly the first time without the need for repeat visits or corrections. Going to the dentist is never fun, but they make it as painless and enjoyable as possible!
Dr. Abelar practices 21st Century dentistry! He and his team professionally utilize the most "up to moment" equipment. My experience having a crown replacement was superb. I have also had the great experience of a hygiene appointment with Jodie. She is wonderful. I will not be returning to my old dentistry office even though it requires me to make an hour drive to get to Aesthetic Dentistry it's more than worth it.
Dr. Abelar is great. I have been a patient for many years. My entire family goes here and everyone is very happy with his dental care.
Jamie & Dr. Abelar were great! I went in for a second opinion & they were so accommodating & professional. I felt very comfortable there and I have had some bad experiences in the past with another Dentist, who is no longer in the area.
To start, Dr. Abelar is a fine dentist, the best! Upon walking into the office you experience a very nice smelling lobby and are greeted by a cheery, smiley receptionist. The office is equipped with the best of the best technology and I always know when I go there, I'm getting the most updated experience. His practices are professional and promising. I always feel safe in the hands of Dr. Abelar and would recommend him to anyone, any day.
Absolutely wonderful. Jodi is wonderful. She is gentle, thorough, funny, and caring.
It is always a pleasant experience coming to Dr Abelar's office! Yesterday, I was with Jody for cleaning and check-up. Jody is gentle and very friendly. After the cleaning she gave me some "HOME BAKED" chocolate chip cookies for our boys at home!! What a nice surprise for me. I will recommend this office to everyone.
Everone in the office is geat!
I had a dental emergency Friday March 21, when Dr. Abelar's office is normally closed. Following the prompts on his answering machine, I left a message describing my problem. Within the hour, Dr. Abelar called me back and came to his office from home to treat me. service doesn't get better than that!!!
New crown feels great!
Professional office and staff. Very organized from the text appointment reminder to the immediate follow up survey. I felt no pressure from Martin. He answered all my questions thoroughly. Great office! I will recommend to others.
Dr Abelar's staff was very pleasant and patient as I was running late due to traffic. They did not make me feel rushed and were ready for me when I arrived. The hygienist Jody is very experienced and knowledgeable. The office is very clean and well designed. Dr Abelar has done one crown for me and it has performed very well. I have managed to crack another molar and will be going back to him for the second crown.
Always feel good going to see Dr Abelar. They are so cheerful and welcoming starting with Jaime at the front desk.
Perfect as usual
Dr. Abelar and the entire staff are great. Everybody has a smile and greets you by name.
Outstanding and professional as always! The top dentist in California in my opinion !!!!
Dr. Abelar is always top notch. And his assistants take such good care of me. For a sissy like myself, it means everything.
As always Dr. Abelar and his staff (Margaret) are the most professional and competent dental providers I have ever experienced. Your office also seems to use the most advanced techniques and equipment making my experience as comfortable as I could ever imagine. Thanks!
DR. ABELAR HAS BEEN OUR FAMILY DENTIST FOR MANY YEARS AND THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER DENTAL PROVIDER IN SD.
Jody has to be the best hygienist I have ever gone too.
Great experience as usual. I have been a patient for 21 years and Dr. Abelar is the best. My 3 teenage children are patients of his as well and they love him. He can connect with the "younger" generation and make them feel comfortable to go to the dentist. Highly recommended.
As always, excellent professional service. Jodie is the best!!
I love Jody, (and all the staff) at Dr. abelar's. Very thorough cleaning, teeth come out looking so white and clean. Dr. Abelar is great, I needed a small bite adjustment and he did it quickly. I am chewing as I write this review and so far it feels great. Thank you!
Always welcoming and friendly. My appointment start exactly on time which I appreciate as I have a pretty full and tight schedule each day. The quality of the treatment was excellent and the thorough review of previous work done by the Endodontist was done.
Dr. Abelar and his staff are extremely courteous and provide excellent care for my teeth. They fit me in right away for an emerency.
excellent service and work by Dr. Abelar and his staff!
Dr. Abelar has been our dentist for years. He opened the office on a Sunday to do emergency repair to my daughters front teeth. His work is impeccable. His staff is extremely friendly and I love my hygienist.I highly recommend Dr Abelar!
Dr.abelar and his staff are the best in San Diego . I recommend this office to all my friends and family .
Excellent care and Dr. Abelar solved the snore guard issue.
I've had my share of so-called negative experiences when it comes to the dentist, so it's refreshing when you encounter great dental establishments like Dr. Martin Abelar's. The establishment is extremely clean and organized and up-to-date on equipment. I know I've been in dental offices where things weren't as tidy as they could have been or seem to skip out on updating dental chairs or equipment, but I don't get that at all here and that's something I greatly appreciate as a patient.The staff is warm, friendly and approachable. Dr. Abelar is truly a genuine and knowledgeable professional. He makes me feel at ease while still maintaining the highest degree of professionalism. I was informed of everything pertaining to my treatment while it was occurring, and my questions and concerns were immediately addressed. He really made me feel that he is here to help his patients and offered some great advice. Thank you to my friend who introduced me to Dr. Abelar and his exceptional work :)
Excellent as usual.
I love coming to this office . Everyone is so professional and nice . Dr.abelar did amazing work on my teeth. I recommend him to all my friends and family . He is the best dentist in SAN DIEGO .
OUTSTANDING SERVICE AND CARE!!
Very nice and personable. Staff is courteous and helpful. The office is very clean.
I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Jody did a fine professional job of cleaning my teeth. Dr. Abelar made his regular inspection of my mouth and teeth. I especially appreciate the care and attention they give to the prevention of decay and my oral hygiene.
This week I had a great experience as usual. Jody Sanders, my hygentist for year now, is so thorough, professional and encouraging. I feel now I understand the importance of using the Water Pik so my teeth will last as long as possible.
Everything went exactly as planned - good communication and good results.
The staff at this office are all so caring and professional. They truly care about there patients . I recommend DR.ABELAR and his staff to all of my friends and family . It's a pleasure to come in for appts. Because I know that I am getting the best care I can get on my gums and teeth . Thank you guys for being so great to my husband and I .
I wouldn't drive 40 miles roundtrip if I didn't think Jody is the best hygienist in San Diego county!
I was warmly greeted by the excellent staff upon my on-time arrival. No waiting. The proceedure on tooth 17 (a hard to reach molar) went exceptionally well-- so much in fact I stand somewhat amazed at how dentistry has progressed.
Very pleasant experience.
Dr. Abelar has been my dentist for over 30 years. He had continued to grow as a professional and person.
My thanks to Dr. Abelar and Margaret for their gentle treatment yesterday! Even with no anesthesia, there was absolutely no discomfort in the placement of my new crown. Is this a GREAT dentist--- or what??
Dr Martin Abelar, and his highly professional Staff are Simply the Best in Southern Ca. Unbeatable customer service! 100 % Quality dentistry regaurdless of complexity! A true Professional Team! Thank You Dr Abelar and Margarat for your continued outstanding service. You guys are phenomenal !!
Excellent job with my new chompers.
Couple great points:
Wonderful as always.
I've been a patient for a long time. Fillings, crowns, cleanings, they're all as pleasant as dentistry can be. And the staff is great too.
I had a short appointment with Dr. Abelar today for a minor adjustment. His staff is so friendly that it is actually fun going to the dentist.
Dr. Abelar is great, and his staff is super friendly! Couldn't ask for a better receptionist or dental assistant. They are wonderful. The place is very nice and relaxing for a dental office! The location is easily reachable from anywhere in San Diego. Highly recommend seeing Dr. Abelar if you need a good dentist!
Excellent as usual..
Professional quality if not the best skills in performance of dental work
Highly competent, caring dentist.
Professional, courteous, informed and explains all procedures completely in plain language. Very clean office, very friendly and helpful explaining insurance payments.
As I have previously indicated, one can only be impressed with the technical expertise of Dr. Abelar and his staff, as well as by the state-of-the-art equipment that they utilize in the practice of dentistry. I was with my former dentist in St. Louis, MO for over 30 years, but my former dentist, while competent, did not have the same capabilities as those of Dr. Abelar and his staff. They have made my transition to a new dental practice here in CA stress-free and enjoyable.
Nothing better than an uneventful, pain-free dentist visit.
Dr. Abelar impressed me as being very competent, including his being very "state-of-the-art" in his expertise and knowledge. His staff, as well, impressed me as being quite competent and accommodating. Dr. Abelar's physical facilities were very comfortable, and his equipment appeared to be nothing short of the latest and greatest available in the practice of dentistry.
Always friendly and great service and quality work.
Pleasant & Easy !! Just like visiting friends---and ---that is what it was.
Initial consultation visit was a great experience. Dr. Abelar took the time to fully examine my problematic teeth and explain the issues to me along with possible treatment plans.
As a person who does not go to the dentist very often I must say I have no problem going back to this office. I like my personal space so the thought of getting x-rays was slightly unsettling however the hygienist was friendly yet wasn't too chatty which is good seeing as how my mouth was too busy to talk much. My appointment time was surprisingly the time I was taken to the back even though I wasn't finished filling out the forms.(which like a boss was an ipad d^_^b) Overall it was a good experience for me... for the person complaining about pricing... get mad at your insurance for being cheap, not at their office.
