I’ve been a patient at Smiles by Design for many years. I am always so pleased with the quality of dental care as well as the the friendliness of the staff. This week I had a new Dental Hygienist. Karen provided the same kind and professional care as I always experience at this this dental office.

My experience at Smiles By Design have been outstanding. The staff are very welcoming and professional. Additionally, when I needed a form signed for my employer they were very prompt with getting it signed by the dentist and back to me. I would highly recommend Smiles By Design!

The staff was very courteous and professional. Didn't have to wait long and they were sensitive to my work schedule. Had to redo two fillings which went very smoothly. I would recommend Dr J and his staff.

Dr. J and his staff are amazing. I do not like dentists, but Dr. J makes that statement obsolete. I have been using Dr. J for a couple of years. I have had a couple of pretty extensive treatments and have left the office thinking, "that wasn't so bad." Dr. J is fantastic, Elaine is a sweetheart, and Ken is the best hygienist I have ever had. If you are looking for a dentist, Check Dr. J out. I promise he will make you feel comfortable the minute you walk in the door.

I came here for a cleaning and second opinion for some sensitivity. My last dentist wanted to grind 1/3 of my tooth and give me and onlay for the bargain price of $575 after insurance!!!! I was mortified until I met Dr J and his staff. Caren gave me a thorough cleaning while being so friendly and kind. When Dr J did his exam and suggested fluoride treatment at home for enamel loss (not a cavity!!) I was so relieved! He admitted it may not fix the problem but admitted he prefers conservative treatments when possible which made me feel confident in his treatment plan and well cared for. My only regret is I didn't find them sooner!

Dr. Dan and the entire staff is and has always been very professional and comforting. The dentist can be a scary place with all the machines and noises, but they make it enjoyable and kid friendly too. AAA+

Came in for my first cleaning with Smiles by Design about a month ago. They were very thorough and my teeth came out looking great! The hygienist was very nice and gental which is saying something since I've never really enjoyed the dentist's office and this was my first visit to a dentist in 5 years! Shirley is a pleasure over the phone as well!

I recommend Smiles By Design to all my friends and family. Dr. Javaheri is terrific, and the staff is great. They put the Smiles in Smiles By Design!

I have been a patient for over 10 years and love coming to see Dr. J and his professional team of experts. The office is very modern and they are all up to date with the latest technologies in dentistry.
For many years, I have been going to Smiles By Design. Ever time I have come away satisfied with the service. All the staff are very friendly. Zoey cleaned my teeth and she was outstanding, making sure I was comfortable and she is very knowledgeable about her craft. I recommend Smiles By Design to other people interested in a good dentist...

Dr. J. and his staff are the best. They're fast and the prices are competitive. Plus, they do excellent work and have two locations. They're very professional and caring, too.

I have been a patient at Smiles by Design since 2008. I was referred here after having a bad experience. As a very anxious dental patient the team here always goes out of their way to make sure I am comfortable. I would highly recommend Smiles by Design

Dr J his staff are amazing and they give the best service ever. My family and I have been patients here for many years and we would never go anywhere else. I highly recommend this office for all your dental needs as well as Invisalign. My daughter was treated with Invisalign 2 years ago and results were incredible.

I'm new to the area, moved here from the Central Valley and have a huge anxiety with dentists. I was referred to Dr. J. When I called, the Staff was professional and very reassuring about the Staff and services which are provided. I received a reminder call and appreciated it. Upon arriving Dr. J was there to greet those of us who entered. I was pleasantly surprised. It is comforting to see and have the interaction between patients and Dr. J. The exam was detailed, informative and pretty much painless. Then afterwards the cleaning was next. Both Missy Debra and the Hygienist were very nice. They kept me calm and relaxed, well as much as I could be due to my anxiety, Lol. The timeframe was reasonable for what they had to do. I received my next appointment and am happy to say I found my new dental office. Everyone made me feel like I had been there forever. YES!!!!! I do recommend them from my first and personal experience with them.
Debbie R.
Amazing, thank you Smile By Design team.
Mehdi D.
The staff at Smiles By Design is fantastic! They are super friendly and I can joke around with them, which really puts me at ease. I love all of the high tech equipment they have available- just today they took pictures of my gums to track the recession- really love that we are going to be able to watch the progress and see if anything else needs to be done. I've already referred two people to this practice, and am slowly convincing my parents to make the switch as well. I know my teeth are in good hands at Smile By Design.

Dr. J and his entire office staff are wonderful.I have had to have 2 crowns replaced and they have done excellent work. The office is bright and cheerful and they work with you to make the experience comfortable and as close to pain free as possible.

A combination of expertise and personality make this the perfect dental office. I was very impressed with the care I was given not only with DR. JAVAHERI but also his entire staff. I am smiling once again!

Dr. J and his staff have always treated me so well! I recommend him to all my friends and family. I’ve had veneers and go to them for all of my general maintenance. I receive compliments on my smile and have Smiles by Design to thank! ALWAYS a pain free, stress free and wonderful experience. 🙂.
Connie R
I love Doctor J and his team!!! They always make me feel at home and put me at ease, and I don't like dentist. Any concern I've I ever had was immediately addressed to my utmost satisfaction.
Harry S
Dr. J is AMAZING! I feel very blessed to have found him and his very talented team. I’m no stranger to dental work and will never go to another dentist. Dr. J and his team always makes sure I am as comfortable as possible and that’s a hard task since I have dental anxiety. They are as gentle as possible while still doing a great job. Seriously give them a try, you won’t regret it!

If I could award more stars I would. I’m so so grateful for this office and Dr J’s practice. I had not been to any dentist in an incredibly long time due to my fears and embarrassment for how long it had been since I’d seen anyone. Today, I chose Dr J as my first dental appointment in twenty years. As a new patient, I was so fearful, but not only was I warmly welcomed and kindly treated, going through the process of xrays and other checkup elements was calm and, to be honest, enjoyable due to the friendly conversation. Dr J was genuine, personable, and informative. I felt so supported through the process of my first visit today. Raul was also particularly comforting through the process. I left feeling empowered and confident. I now know I have a team on my side that I trust and feel safe with. From the front desk with Elaine and Shirley, to everyone who assisted me today, thank you for easing my apprehension and for treating me so warmly and wonderfully!

Everybody "LOVES" going to the Dentist, right? Well this group almost makes you want to. The office is always neat, clean, friendly and ready to serve you. The staff is efficient and on their game. I have had joint replacement surgery and must take an antibiotic before ANY procedure. They always ask/check to make sure that I have. If I have forgotten they provide it for me, prior to starting. Dr. J explains things in a manner that is understandable.
Don C
excellent Dentist. Dr J is the best Dentist I have ever had in San Diego. He found an abscess in my gum which was from a root canal that many years ago another dentist did on my tooth and that was interesting because the abscess didn't even had any sign and symptoms. office staffs very nice and welcome with a beautiful smile. thanks Smile by Design.
Layla S
Dr. Javaheri was referred to me by a friend and I'm glad I went to see him. He is straightforward and honest. He did my wisdom tooth extraction and I've had no swelling or pain whatsoever. True professional. I will be going to him for all my dental needs.
Sina O
The entire staff is smart, professional, polite, and kind. They make sure you are comfortable and everything is good.
Kathy F.
The absolute best!! I have been going to Smiles By Design San Diego for years and I have not had any bad experiences. From front desk staff, to assistants, Dr Javaheri and even the facility itself I have nothing but great things to say about them. I recently visited them and I was a little worried about the whole COVID situation but I honestly I felt safer than anywhere else being in there just watching how careful and protected they are. I have also sent all my friends there and they have loved every visit of theirs. Thank you Smiles By Design for being so amazing.

I am very satisfied with the staff that is working there. They are very nice and polite. Doctor was able to answer all my questions and to explain me a procedure step by step, which helped me a lot to relax. Overall great experience! Should definitely recommend them!
Petar R.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the dental assistant was so sweet and lovely. The doctor was also very calm and informative, I felt comfortable asking questions. Everyone seems super nice so far so I definitely recommend this place.
Saba N.
Dr. J and his staff (Shirley, Elaine and Steve) are truly amazing! They provide the best and honest dental care with compassion and making the patients feel comfortable. When I first moved to San Diego, I went to three different dentists before I found this office. They are the best! Big thanks to everyone at Smiles By Designs for keeping my smile and my husband's healthy :)
Nin V.
My entire family, including my 90 year old mother, have been going to Dr J for several years. The entire staff is friendly and extremely caring. They have taken extraordinary care of my 90 year old mother. She loves everyone at his office. Dr. J has constantly gone above and beyond to work on her failing teeth. Dr. J. is a fantastic dentist!! I would highly recommend Dr. J and Smiles By Design!! You will not find a better dental office.
Kathryn A.
Three months ago Dr. Javehari placed an implant (back molar). He did a great job. I have had no problems with the tooth. My bite is good and the spacing with the adjacent tooth is perfect. Also, the office personnel are wonderful and all do a great job of making the time in the office as safe and comfortable as possible.
