StarStarStarStarStar Terrific Dental Practice —    (Patient since Thu May 01 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

My husband and I could not ask for better dental hygienists or dentists. They have up to date technology, provide excellent information and explanations, do no unnecessary work, are professional friendly, and are painless even with crown replacements. Kelly at the front desk is efficient and helpful.


StarStarStarStarStar Padre Dental Is Thee Best —    (Patient since Mon Nov 04 00:00:00 MST 2013)

Padre Dental, Kelly & Drs. Val & Preston have been absolutely fantastic. Both my husband & I have been coming here for several years and never had a bad experience. 10000% recommend!

I have a great fear of dentists since I was a child. Because of that I have neglected visiting for a while.....ok Long while... So when it came time for a long over due visit., I had to find a dentist that was covered my insurance, so based on reviews I chose Padre Dental. All I can say if I would have found them years ago I wouldn't be afraid of going to the dentists any longer They are professional and caring and truly concerned we my well being. All I can say is that I am lucky that I found them.

Love Jennifer! Best dental hygienist I've had. Is very attentive and goes above and beyond (putting chapstick on you when your lips start to dry out.) It's those small things that make all the difference in your experience.


StarStarStarStarStar I love Padre Dental Group —    (Patient since Thu May 30 00:00:00 MDT 2013)

I had my teeth cleaned. Jennifer always takes good care of me. We talk about all the things I can do to keep my teeth and gums healthy. She is very gentle and always very personable. I absolutely love everyone at Padre Dental Group.

Padre Dental is quite simply the most professional, thorough and even relaxing dental experience of any practice I've ever come across. Dr. Preston, Dr. Valerie and staff are a pleasure, and they take excellent care of me and my family. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

This has been the best dental experience Ive ever had. Everyone there was so professional and nice. Dr Val was amazing, she made sure I was informed on everything that was going on. Dr Preston even came in and introduced hisself. The best team duo ever. I would recommend everyone I know to them.


StarStarStarStarStar Looking Forward to Future Visits —    (Patient since Thu Sep 14 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

This was my first visit to the Padre Dental Group. I enjoyed my time in the office and with the staff. It was good to meet Kelly after several phone conversations with her. My time with Dr. Preston seemed leisurely and professional. He answered my questions with clear explanations. I appreciated that during and after my cleaning and exam how he discussed and explained potential issues with my teeth that he will be watching in future visits. I am looking forward to receiving my future dental care from the Padre Dental Group!

I was extremely pleased with the care and attention I received on my first visit. Dr. Preston listened to my dental history adding his insight as to the upcoming oral surgery. I would highly recommend this practice.

The staff at Padre Dental Group are always friendly, welcoming, and attentive to my needs and questions.

I've been a patient at padre dental for about 5 years now and have always been impressed with the professional and friendly service provided by Dr. Preston Kaenel and his staff, especially my hygienist Jennifer Ned. We always find something to laugh about and the time just flies. From the smallest treatment such as cleaning to filling cavities or crowns, I know I can count on the Padre dental group to service all my dental needs. Sincerely, diane kovalcheck

StarStarStarStarStar If you need a new dentist, choose Padre Dental —    (Patient since Mon Jan 24 00:00:00 MST 2011)

Padre Dental is the absolute best dentist I have ever had. Dr. Preston and Val are both equally friendly, thoughtful, and skilled. I fully trust them to give the right recommendations and care. I've had Jennifer as a hygienist for the past five years and I consider her a friend. She always remembers what we talked about last time I visited (even though it is 4-6 months apart) and makes visits to dentist something to look forward to. She and all of the other staff that I have met are all incredibly professional and friendly. I would recommend anyone looking for a new dentist to go here. (Not to mention, their office has beautiful views of Point Loma and the bay.)

Great New Patient Experience


StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since Thu May 18 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

I am not a fan of Dentists but because my tooth had a hole in it...So I made an appointment with Padre Dental Group as they are not far from home. I was immediately pleasantly surprised when I walked in. I was greeted like I was an old friend. And Dr. Val treated me with such kindness that I felt so relaxed. I got a crown and a cleaning and it was done in a couple hours. I left with no pain. The only thing I have is that it is really expensive. I don't have insurance so I paid but I didn't realized how expensive dental care was...


StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since Mon May 15 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

I actually look forward to a Padre Dental visit. Great people, professional environment, state-of-the-art equipment, truly outstanding customer service and seriously effective advice.


StarStarStarStarStar I am so happy with my new dentist!. —    (Patient since Wed Apr 05 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

I was so impressed with my new dentist. It is a warm and friendly place with an awesome panoramic view from the 7th floor, but, most importently, the technology very up to date and current. I watched Dr. Preston Kaenel make my crown using a 3D computer generated image of my dentition. Then, with a click, he sent the file to a machine on the other side of the room that, within minutes, milled the crown he just created on the computer, right in front of my eyes! The resulting crown fit perfectly. All Dr. Kaaenel had to do was make some minor adjustments and bingo, I was good to go.

StarStarStarStarStar Personalized Dental Care Makes A Difference —    (Patient since Mon Mar 06 00:00:00 MST 2017)

I received very personalized care from Dr. Val. She's a great listener and was able to start resolving an issue with painful crowns two other dentists were not successful at. I am truly grateful for her patience, having the right tools to solve the problem and willingness to work over time to get it right.

Dr. Preston was knowledgeable, kind and very thorough. My case is a bit complicated, but he took the time to explain his plan thoroughly and to make sure I understood each of the steps to come. This was my first visit, but I feel very secure in putting my care in his hands. I also find the receptionist to be delightful, and she is very service-oriented. I am very happy that I decided to switch to Padre Dental Group.

Dr. Kaenel was recommended to me by a co-worker in 2009, and I have been a patient ever since. I now too recommend the office to my co-workers and friends. Dr. Kaenel is by far the best dentist I have ever had, including several other states I lived in. The entire staff is friendly and treat you like you're family. Very highly recommended.

StarStarStarStarStar I Love the Padre Dental Group —    (Patient since Thu May 30 00:00:00 MDT 2013)

I absolutely love the Padre Dental Group. They have been my dentists for several years. I’m not a good patient because I find keeping my mouth open for a long period of time to be very uncomfortable and stressful. However, the doctors and staff are excellent at keeping me relaxed and relatively stress free. Danella takes my x-rays with little discomfort, Jennifer, my hygienist, does an excellent job and always discusses my particular case and what I can do to keep from seeing the dentist. How about that, she gives me advice of how I can do her out of a job. I am so impressed with both Doctors Val and Preston, they are very nice and friendly, they consider my limited budget when talking about future care. They are experts at what they do and I believe two of the best dentists anywhere. They are always willing to answer questions and I truly believe they are interested in my wellbeing. It isn’t about how much money they make, it’s about how to best serve me. I wish we were neighbors.

I had an excellent experience at Padre dental group. Everyone was very friendly and professional. From the moment I arrived, Bobbii made me feel right at home. Dr Val did a perfect job on my dental bonding and was half the price of another dentist that I visited before checking out Padre dental group. They have earned my business and I will continue to have Dr Val as my dentist in the future.

LOVE Padre Dental! Before my first visit I was a 30 year old who had never been to a dentist, I was so fearful and anxious about dental appointments and never had proper dental insurance until later in life. Their office and staff are so knowledgeable, friendly, wonderful and professional that I now look forward to my check ups and cleanings. Going to Padre Dental is like visiting extended family that happen to be exceptionally talented at taking care of your teeth.


StarStarStarStarStar Great experience! —    (Patient since Mon Apr 16 00:00:00 MDT 2012)

I recently got two fillings done (my second time getting this specific work done here), and it was a smooth and professional process. I was very comfortable, and Padre Dental is the only group I would trust to drill inside of my mouth. What would be a high-stress procedure for me (at any other office) was quick and painless! I would definitely recommend this business.

I have been a patient at Padre Dental for over 10 years. Even though I now live in Encinitas, I will make the trek down to Hillcrest to go to the dentist because it is a wonderful office that cares about its patients.

Kelly was professional and honest and thorough as always. Thanks.


StarStarStarStarStar An outstanding dental practice.  —    (Patient since Thu May 01 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

My husband and I greatly appreciate the outstanding care and service we receive at Padre Dental Group. Jennifer not only cleans my teeth throughly and gently but offers clear explanations and advice. Dr. Valerie Kanael is pleasant and has given me the two crowns -- making me very comfortable with the process and providing terrific explanations as she goes along. And then Bobbie at the front desk is knowledgeable and friendly. We would not go anywhere else.

Padre Dental Group is the best dental group anywhere! I send all my friends and colleagues there. Knowledgeable, caring hygienists and doctors Val and Preston are unparalleled! I'd never go elsewhere!

I was scared about coming to the dentist because it had been years, but the staff and quality of services made the whole process easy. I would definitely recommend others to Padre Dental.


StarStarStarStarStar Caring and Meticulous Dental Office —    (Patient since Fri Mar 09 00:00:00 MST 2012)

My family has been using the services of Padre Dental Group since 2011 and would not go anywhere else. All that work in this dental office are very attentive, gentle folks that love what they do and it shows; their business is not a money machine where patients are mere dollar signs. We came across them while seeking a second opinion on my then 16 year old son's dental solutions. The original dentist had proposed a radical teeth pulling, braces etc. Dr. Preston and Dr. Val's opinion was: "Let's wait and see." Liking their approach, we switched over to Padre Dental and never looked back. My son's teeth are now perfect without any expensive, traumatic surgeries or annoying braces. It is really a pleasure to visit this office for many reasons, but the all encompassing feeling is that everyone truly likes their work and is passioned about it. It all starts with Bobbii at the front desk, continues with Kelly, the hygienist, and finishes with the doctors themselves.


StarStarStarStarStar Thanks! —    (Patient since Fri Oct 03 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

Thanks you guys do a great job. I am a tough patient with TMJ and tooth sensitivity and you are accommodating to my needs.

I would highly recommend padre dental. They have helped me a lot with managing pain from tooth sensitivity. They are also very gentle with their cleanings. I have had bad experiences in the past from other offices that hit my sensitive spots and I don't ever have that problem here.


StarStarStarStarStar Excellent Dental Care —    (Patient since Thu Feb 07 00:00:00 MST 2013)

I have been a patient of Padre Dental Group for nearly 3 years, and have never felt more comfortable with visiting a dentist office. The entire staff is always welcoming and very friendly, and the professionalism, knowledge and experience of Dr.'s Preston & Valerie Kaenel, guarantees that you are receiving the best care in town.


StarStarStarStarStar The BEST dental office is San Diego!  —    (Patient since Mon May 06 00:00:00 MDT 2002)

The BEST dental office is San Diego! Drs. Val and Preston are amazing!! And so are the staff members!


StarStarStarStarStar Friendly Family Dentist —    (Patient since Thu Oct 13 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

I've been going to Padre Dental for at least 5 years now and they are professional, kind and always available to address any dental issues you may be having. From Bobbii to the dental hygienists, especially Jennifer, Dr Preston and Dr Valerie, they are friendly, welcoming and actually make going to the dentist less painful. Don't hesitate to choose Padre Dental with confidence to be your family dentist!

A lot of questions seemed to be asked about what specific kind of toothpaste, brush, floss and mouthwash I am using. For most or all of those, a different kind or brand is almost always being recommended so it does get to be a little much. But overall the visits are good.


StarStarStarStarStar Hygeinist —    (Patient since Mon Jul 01 00:00:00 MDT 2013)

I absolutely adore Jen, she is by far the absolute best I have ever had. Is so knowledgeable and gentle. Thank you

I typically see Kelly for teeth cleanings and this morning I called to see if I could switch hygienists. Kelly is nice, but comes on way too strong. I don't mind being stuck in a chair for 45 minutes getting a teeth cleaning, but I mind being stuck in a chair and given a lecture. Especially when that person is not a dentist. The do or die attitude with which her advice is given is over dramatic and I feel its unnecessary (not the advice, but it's delivery). Other than that, no complaints at all about the practice - Bobbi is great, the dentists are both great and I'm always seen very promptly. Thank you.

My favorite dentist ever! From the reminders about appoints and reception, comfortable and beautiful space, and really professional, knowledgeable, supportive hygienists and dentists, this place is the best. Both the hygienists and dentists remember where to be careful and what they've recommended before, making me feel like I don't have to reexplain every time what is unique about my teeth. Hope I never have to switch dentists.


StarStarStarStarStar Excellent denistry —    (Patient since Thu Dec 09 00:00:00 MST 2010)

StarStarStarStarStar Love them all.  —    (Patient since Thu Jul 18 00:00:00 MDT 2013)

Everyone at Padre is awesome. I'm learning as I correct. I wish I had Dr. Preston 18 years ago. Since I moved here. But he's probably too young.

StarStarStarStarStar My Review of Padre Dental Group —    (Patient since Thu May 10 00:00:00 MDT 2007)

I have never, ever encountered a more skillful, professional, friendly, thoughtful and considerate dental group anywhere in the country (and I've been to many)


StarStarStarStarStar Only concern I have is around insurance —    (Patient since Tue Mar 22 00:00:00 MDT 2016)

Only concern I have is around insurance. I don't understand why they would only cover 50% on a crown but she was saying it might only be 40%? Also I read my insurance and it says 80% on crown repair. I'm sure we can talk about this on my next visit.


StarStarStarStarStar You could give away lolipops. —    (Patient since Mon Mar 21 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

You could give away lolipops.

The person who took me back for xrays before my cleaning - not Jen- was not very friendly. She seemed rushed and not very gentle with the xray mouth pieces. I've had that experience with her before. Everyone there is great and I always have a good visit.

I had cavities filled on Tuesday and am experiencing heightened sensitivity in that area. I'm going to wait until next week to see if it's just irritated from the procedure. Otherwise I may need to schedule a follow up to get that checked out. It wasn't sensitive before getting my fillings.

I always love coming to Padre Dental, even though I do not like getting my teeth worked on. The staff is amazing, meaning Bobbi, Jennifer, and the dentists. Everyone is always so welcoming and I appreciate that they remember specific things about my life. I also love how thorough they are and I never feel like they're trying to rip me off or get me to do unnecessary dental work. I've been going here since 2008 or so, and plan to continue going here as long as I live in SD.

From the first time I called to the moment I left the office it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Bobbi you are wonderful and made me feel like I've been coming for years. I will continue to do so since it was such a good experience. I live across the street, felt like the service was fair and honest and left ready to refer others to the office. Thank you all for my first of many visits.

StarStarStarStarStar My visit was great, as usual —    (Patient since Mon Apr 08 00:00:00 MDT 2013)

My visit was great, as usual. Jen (hygenist) is always very competent and professional but friendly -- definitely puts the patient at ease. My experiences with Dr Valerie have been the same (competent and professional yet friendly). I only saw Dr Preston for a couple of minutes but that was also a positive experience. I can't say enough good things about Padre Dental -- from Bobbi in the office to Jen to the doctors, all my experiences with Padre have been outstanding. I've been to some horrific dentists/dental offices in the past and Padre is like an oasis in the desert. :D I only hope I can find an office as good when I move out of state!

Getting my teeth cleaned isn't at the top of my list of favorite things to do in 60 minutes or less, but it's much easier when the environment and people who work there care and make me feel comfortable and at home.

I am not sure I have ever even heard of anyone being seen and finished within 30 minutes time. I was. It was a fantastic experience and if I ever need dental work again it would be well worth the return trip. Thank you guys so much for the last minute appointment to replace a broken filling.

Jennifer is wonderful!! Very kind, gentle, thoroughly explains everything in a clear manor and in a way that does not cause me to feel defensive. She is the only reason I can continue to get my husband to get his 2x/year cleanings. Took away 1 star for a few frustrating experiences with your front office person (Bobby?) and for having to pay to park.

Padre dental is easily the best dentist I've been to in San Diego. I've had bad or forgettable experiences elsewhere. Padre is a clean, comfortable, stress-free environment. Add a small bubbling water fountain and it'd be a spa.

Jennifer knew I had to leave at a certain time, and she cheerfully and professionally got me out the door on time. I even had to have x-rays and see Dr. Valerie Kanael. She also does a superb job cleaning my teeth and telling me what she sees and what I can do better, all in a constructive, upbeat way. Excellent! And Bobbi knows me, which is remarkable because I only come in every 4 months.

Always enjoy my visits. The only feedback is I don't really know when it's time for x-rays or when the Dr. is going to be seeing me. I would like a review of that on each visit. (I always forget to ask as well).

Jennifer is an outstanding Dental Hygienist and I trust her care implicitly. Drs. Kaenel are also great dentists - equally talented. I have been going to them for about 8 years and can't imagine a better dental provider.

StarStarStarStarStar Best dentists ever! —    (Patient since Mon Mar 21 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

I've been to many dentists in my 55 years but never to ones I felt this comfortable with. Ever get that feeling some dental procedures are not necessary? It won't happen here. Everything is explained, shown to you and it will fit with what you feel is right. Both dentists and the hygenist are so caring, thorough and gentle. Bobbi at the front desk is always warm, helpful and downright fun. This is how dentistry is meant to be but often in my experience, not.


StarStarStarStarStar No problem I like the way you treat your patients I feel very relaxed. —    (Patient since Tue Sep 11 00:00:00 MDT 2012)

I don't like to go to the dentist at all,it was over 8 years since I last saw a dentist before my appt with Dr Valerie Kaenel. She's amazing,her demeanor,what she said,she just put me at ease. She did a wonderful and very thorough exam and cleaning on my teeth and my husband's. The staff is also wonderful.

I have complete confidence in their work and they treat me like a VIP every time I am there. I highly recommend them as the best in service and best in value in San Diego.

Another great visit!! As always, every visit here makes going to the dentist much more tolerable ;) Jennifer was great doing my cleaning and provided me with great recommendations, and Dr. Val gave me valuable information about the current and future state concerning my dental health. Thanks again!!

StarStarStarStarStar As a brand new patient, I was completely impressed by the friendly staff and welcoming waiting... —    (Patient since Mon Sep 29 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

As a brand new patient, I was completely impressed by the friendly staff and welcoming waiting room and exam rooms. The place is gorgeous and the massage chairs...good gravy! But the best thing was how comfortable they made my 10 year old son. And I was not made to feel like an epic failure because it had been so long since I had been to the dentist, hey LIFE happens. For that, I have made my choice. Dr. Val ROCKS! ONE thing: Please get a new Keurig...please.


StarStarStarStarStar No changes, very pleased with the experience. —    (Patient since Tue Sep 23 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

No changes, very pleased with the experience.


StarStarStarStarStar My experience was pleasant and satisfactory. My only issue was that they do not validate parking —    (Patient since Thu Sep 18 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

My experience was pleasant and satisfactory. My only issue was that they do not validate parking. It is a busy area of town so most likely the only option is to park in the structure and it would be nice to get validation. It's just one less thing to worry about since the main concern will be a dental bill.


StarStarStarStarStar I have ALWAYS been nervous to go to the dentist —    (Patient since Mon Sep 08 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

I have ALWAYS been nervous to go to the dentist. This time was no exception, but the Dr was friendly, and gentle. To my surprise, even though I'd been experiencing some tooth pain and expected to hear bad news, everything was fine. I've been avoiding the dentist for something like three years, and I'm thrilled to have found a dentist I really like and to have super-clean teeth. I'm so much less nervous now, and won't be waiting another three years to see a dentist.


StarStarStarStarStar Only downside was there was no validation for parking. Had to pay an extra 5 dollars to park.  —    (Patient since Thu Aug 07 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

We've been so happy with Padre Dental. I have had experiences in the past at other places that were dishonest with the treatment I needed. Dr. Preston and his team give the highest quality work I've had in 10 years and are the friendliest staff I've ever come across. We trust this team!

I honestly couldn't be happier with my two visits to your office. Perhaps not the most useful feedback vis-a-ve improvement, but true nonetheless. Thanks Amy and Dr. Val!

I have been a patient for about 3 (?) years now. I have referred both parents and husband. For a squeamish dental patient, Dr Val Kaenel and Jennifer Ned have truly put me at ease. Bobbii is always excellent with any front office/$ questions and everyone is unbelievably competent whilst being personal and professional... It's truly a breath of fresh air. My mom and I see Dr Val, dad & husband see Dr Preston... we agree they are both amazing!

So bummed that my favorite hygientist of all time, Amy, will be moving out of town! :( I loved the consistency of seeing her every time - I think it was that accountability that finally got me into better brushing/flossing habits.

This visit was 1st regular cleaning after my 1st visit 6 months earlier. Hygienist was more engaging and knowledgeable than any other about my teeth, having reviewed my records and images before I arrived. Her professional focus and care made the visit pleasant.

StarStarStarStarStar 1st visit in 3 years —    (Patient since Mon Jun 11 00:00:00 MDT 2007)

This was my first visit in almost three years becuase of a few bad experiences there with another hygenist. Having my teeth cleaned at Padre Dental in the past was like torture. I literally cried every time. Kelly cleaned my teeth yesterday and did an amazing job with absolutely no pain to me. I will ask for her every time - she is great! I stayed with Padre Dental because I think both dentists are exceptional and I am happy to have found a caring hygenist.

My vists are always excellent. The staff is friendly and very caring. I wish they used novacain but that's okay because the dentists give really excellent shots, hardly any pain. Also, the hygienists are gentle with their teeth cleaning, and are careful to explain everything to you. Bobby, who works the front desk, is very friendly. she has a great sense of humor.

Thank you for fitting me in for a cleaning so quickly Bobbi. I've been working with Kelly for 8 years and have developed a trust and confidence in her work. At first I was hesitant to work with Amy who was new to me. It was my first time to get a cleaning by Amy. I was so impressed by her thoroughness in my cleaning and kindness regarding my mom's passing. Thanks Amy and Bobbi.

It would be nice to have a print out from the Hygenist. Even if it is emailed the next day. Advice on areas I am missing with brushing or worst gum areas. I know i need to floss more, but some kind of a report on what got better or worse since last time and what areas need the most help would be great. Thanks

I was disappointed you didn't validate parking, as past practices in your location have. This adds, in effect, a surcharge to every visit.


StarStarStarStarStar I am extremely happy with Padre Dental —    (Patient since Fri Nov 16 00:00:00 MST 2012)

I am extremely happy with Padre Dental. The staff has been exceptional last year (working with my year-end deadlines) and this year (repair of my partial).

I'd say that Padre Dental is one of the best places I've ever been to for dental care. The people I deal with are friendly, informative and make me feel very comfortable. The advice they've given me is always right on. I've recommended them to others and will continue to do so.

This was a flawless dental experience! I have a background in dentistry so I fully understand what made it an exceptional patient experience. Clinically; the doctor and chair-side assistant both had an extremely light touch. Most importantly, Dr. Kaenel gave an absolutely painless injection, which was right on the mark. I felt nothing during the prep for a crown and 2 fillings. Regarding the business; the treatment plan was conservative and their fees were painless as well. The office is immaculate, they have top notch equipment and use the latest technology. I would not hesitate for a minute to refer my family and friends to this practice! If you're looking for a great dental practice, you can stop looking; you've just found it!

StarStarStarStarStar You guys know how much I love Padre Dental —    (Patient since Mon Jan 16 00:00:00 MST 2012)

You guys know how much I love Padre Dental. But, since you asked for feedback, I thought I would provide some. Kelly is awesome, but it just seemed like my cleaining was a bit rushed. I know someone was after me, and it is completely understandable, but it did seem a bit rushed. My last cleaning was real long, this one was not and did not seem as thorough. Maybe because I had taken Kelly's advice to clean more thoroughly on my own. But, again, just wanted to provide the requested feedback. I love your office and would recommend anyone there in the future.

My visits are always very pleasant. Everyone is very friendly and professional. I love Dr. Val. She is very good at explaining exactly what each procedure would entail. I feel like she cares as if it was her own teeth. Bobbi is really great, very friendly and exceptionally good at remembering names and details about you that make all the difference. Nonetheless, I would like to see Padre Dental start to validate parking. My visits are usually long and I feel like parking is too expensive. Otherwise Padre Dental is the best place for dental work.
