First time with Dr Carmichael for dental work --crown and root canal. I'm still in process but so far she has made it a good experience. I like that the endodonist will travel to her office. As a retiree without dental insurance the cost was hardest part. In the past I have paid larger bills over a period of months. Dental cleaning was done with water technique. A good experience.
5
Excellent staff and caring dental personnel. Everyone is very helpful.
5
I appreciate the smooth transition of dentists in the dental office. Dr. Carmichael is friendly and very helpful in walking a patient through each step of a procedure. Her assistant was very professional and attentive to my needs. A great professional team!
5
After being a patient with Dr. Codington for years, I was worried when he retired and Dr. Carmichael took over his practice. Needless to say I was extremely nervous for my first cleaning appointment. What a pleasant surprise. Dr. Carmichael came into the room, introduced herself and did an extensive exam. A few weeks later on a Friday night, I developed a tooth ache and called the office phone number. The message gave another number to call. To my surprise Dr. Carmichael answered the phone. She immediately met me in the office, took care of the tooth and told me to call anytime if I ever developed another problem. I can't recommend Dr Carmichael enough not only for her professionalism but more importantly her concern and attention to her patients.
5
I recently had prep work done for a crown. Dr. Carmichael and her chair assistant were very caring and tended to all my needs and concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Carmichael, chair side and hygienist. The office staff is great on getting you in for routine as well as emergency appointments.
5
I had routine teeth cleaning with new hygenist. She was very informative and thorough. I had a lazor treatment on my gums, which is to help with bacteria build up. Pleasant visit.
5
This is the best dental practice! I have been a client since I moved to San Diego . I highly recommend them.
5
I love my Hygienist Rachel I almost look forward to my cleaning

5
My wife and I have been going here for over 20-years and have always trusted Dr. Codington with our care. He has always done what is best for us and never tried to talk us into something we didn't need. Heather is the best hygienist and nicest person to have cleaning our teeth. I trust that things will remain unchanged in the new arrangement.

5
They are a great team.
5
Always a pleasant experience at this office! Karen is an excellent hygienist. Does a very thorough job and always gentle!
5
I've been a patient with Dr. Codington for over 25 years. He is absolutely the best. He takes time to let the patient know exactly what a treatment plan is. My recent cleaning with Emily, the hygienist, when smooth as silk. She was ready to take me as soon as I came into the office & advised me on keeping good oral health. All of Dr. Codington's staff is experienced & professional.
5
The usual quality service. Enjoyed the new dental hygienist assigned. I appreciate the text message reminders - I'm the kind who needs it. Since there is a charge for failing to reschedule at 48 hours it would seem to everyone's interest to have a reminder sent at 72 hours. That would give you more time to usefully book as well. Just a thought. Having at 24 hrs leaves little time to rebook to keep the schedules maximized - and of course is too late to avoid penalties that have increased recently.
5
Heather did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. It's great to see her back!
5
I am always constantly happy & satisfied with all of my dental needs at your office - Emily is an excellent Hygenist - always sooo very thorough and excellent in her field - Dr. Coddington is the greatest Dentist - he is sooo very honest & sincere and we never experience any pain whatsoever from all of his superior work that he does on our teeth - JoAnn & Jennifer are always sooo very pleasant and make us feel at home with their warming "welcome", kind attitudes & personalities that are sooo very kind & caring for all of our needs. We very highly recommend Dr. Coddington's office to anyone who is in need of a very professional Dental exam & perfect care of their teeth! God Bless everyone in Dr. Coddington's office We are sooo very grateful that we were referred to Dr. Coddington's office by our other great dentist - Dr. Hendrixson in Westlake Village - almost 17 years ago when we moved to San Diego on October 3,2000!
5
I would like to give Richard Codington and his staff a 1,0000 star rating. I am looking forward to my next appointment. I was very impressed at my first appointment!

I was able to get in on short notice with an emergency. Very grateful. Thanks
5
In short....Best dentist in San Diego. Been seeing him for 25 years.
5
Visit after visit, I continue to be extremely satisfied with and grateful for the level of service and expertise provided by Dr. Codington and his staff. They are extremely personable, professional, and thorough. I've been a loyal patient for over 30 years for these reasons. Thanks for the great care and service!
5
As someone with plenty of dental anxiety, I appreciate and really like Dr. Codington. He is not only highly skilled and gentle, but reassuring and sensitive. I cannot imagine a better dentist.
5
Another great dental experience! Love the friendly office vibe - definitely decreases my anxiety. Heather is an amazing dental hygienist and never causes me any stress or discomfort. Thank you!
5
No pain!
5
Emily is a fantastic hygienist. I used to dread having my teeth cleaned, as my last hygienist was rough. Emily makes it fun again to have my teeth cleaned! To top it off, she's always polite and professional. Thank you!
5
Everything was very good, from the front desk to Emily, who did a very good job of cleaning my teeth and explaining what was going on. Then Dr. Codington did a very thorough exam and explained my options to me. I have been going her a long time and will continue to do so - could not have received better treatment. Thanks to all the Staff.
5
Always a great experience. Dr Codington is the best! Karin is a great hygenist! Always remembers details about our family and asks. Have never had a bad experience in this office! Thanks!
5
Everything went fine, as always.
5
Rachel is a top ntch hygienest and provides excellent feedback and encouragement.
5
My recent dental cleaning and checkup scored high notes again. Dr. Codington and his staff are dedicated and always make you feel assured you're in good care. I have been going there for more than 33 years and each visit was pleasant.
5
Loved the care I received at my last cleaning. The hygienist listened to my concerns and gave me great advice. She also helped me understand more about dental care. The cleaning was painless and I always look forward to my appts here.
5
Dr Coddington and his staff provide the finest professional dental services possible. They provide quality and conscientious services in a relaxed environment. For me, their greatest asset is their ability to understand the patient's needs and not to stress out patients by making them feel guilty about their differences in personal dental hygiene.
5
Heather did an excellent job and was personable and efficient.
5
I always get excellent dental care at Dr. Codington's practice. I trust that they are doing what is necessary for my teeth and never try to do things that are not needed. I've been going there over 20 years and will continue. Heather is a great hygienist.
5
Brittany did an outstanding job on my teeth....thank you Brittany!
5
I had a great appointment with Dr. Codington and his team as usual. He listened intently to my problem with my crown and came up with a solution that would work with replacement. I really appreciate his working with me on the problem area to find a better solution and for working with me to reduce the cost of the work. I admire the professionalism of the whole staff and how hard they work to make me comfortable with the dental experience. Thank you again.
5
Richard Codington DDS has been our family dentist for nearly 40 years. Richard and his staff are all very experienced, friendly, personal and professional, and the facility is state of the art. Although we have moved a considerable distance away, we would not consider another dentist.
5
Absolutely great as also. I have been a patient of Dr.Codington for 36 years and have always been impressed by the professionalism and painless dental procedures.

At each visit, I encounter thorough professionalism from the entire staff. I feel that I am well cared for and the best outcome is discussed with me prior to implementation.

5
Great staff and dentist
5
Emily is fantastic. She combines her professionalism with warmth and kindness. Going to the dentist is a pleasant experience because of her, and my teeth always sparkle when I leave.
5
Dr. Codington and crew are the best in town. I was recently in his office for a procedure and mentioned it to my cousin, and she said, "You go to Codington? So do I. I tell everyone I know about him. He's the best." And I agree. So take it from two cousins. If you're looking for expert dental work and friendly office staff, both front and back, Dr. Codington is the dentist for you. And my cousin drives thirty minutes to go to him.
5
Best dental care ever!!
5
As always the staff is professional, competent, and courteous. We have two generations of experience.
5
The office staff is super efficient. My appointment was timely, my teeth felt great after a good cleaning and Dr. Codington is always: calming, thorough and spot on regarding my oral care. I appreciate the professional care I receive at Dr. Codington's office and highly recommend you visit them too!
5
We've been patients of Dr. Coddington for more than 35 years. Our experience has been so outstanding that we travel more than three hours each way for our cleanings and/or required treatments. We would never think of changing as long as he is practicing. We would recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist.
5
Great visit as always. Dr. Codington and his staff are always friendly and professional and do an amazing job.
5
As always, a pleasant experience. I am looking forward to having Heather return in October! I was treated very well on Wednesday. Missed seeing Dr. Codington! Hope he has a great vacation.

Richard Codington and staff responded and corrected my dental issue within hours on the same day, without and appointment. Thank You!
5
A patient since 1984 Richard and his staff run the operation with the highest standards coupled with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The best dentist ever.
5
Dr Codington is the best dentist in every way. Feel really lucky to have him as my dentist.
5
All good.
5
We can't say enough about Dr Codington and his staff. That's why our family has been patients for thirty years without a thought of changing. In fact we are moving to northern Escondido and will not be changing dentists.
5
Rachel is wonderful! Professional yet pleasant.
5
I am always constantly very pleased with the professional work of Emily, the hygenist, Dr.Coddington and all of his staff. I would most proudly recommend Dr. Coddington's whole office to anyone in need of an excellent dentist. Everyone in the office is always so very friendly, professional and willing to please as well as making you feel very comfortable when visiting this office.
5
I just had a dental cleaning with Brittany...she was thorough and gentle and very pleasant. Her recommendations to me for toothbrush cleaning follow up will be done...I promise! Thank you Brittany!
5
I've been seeing Dr. Codington for 21 years and have never been disappointed with the cleanings by his professional staff; the assistance by his office personnel; and by Dr. Codington himself. He is a very thorough and caring dentist. I highly recommend his practice to anyone looking for a great dentist.
5
We have been coming to this office for 35 years & all has been first rate. Dr. Codington is excellent in explaining any procedure that he is involved with & offers options if they are available. The bottom line is that Dr. Codington & his staff are excellent in all areas concerning a patient's well being. My family would not hesitate for a second to recommend this dental office to anyone who desires competent, friendly & professional dental care.

What a great team. I've had such negative past experiences with dental teams that I avoided a visit for over 6 years. That was until I heard about Richard Codington's office and decide to give it a try. What a pleasant experience. The staff was very professional, kind and attentive. I'm grateful for finding a dental facility that I look forward to visiting now and into the future. Thank you Thank you.

Emily is an excellent hygenist and does a very thorough, professional job in cleaning my teeth! I am always very satisfied whenever I go to your dental office. Everyone is sooo very kind and polite and they welcome Garry and I with open arms! We would recommend your dental office to anyone we come in contact with!
5
Our latest visit for our dental cleanings required us to be seen by new hygienists. Both were very professional and we look forward to coming back again.
5
Great care as usual. I've been coming to Dr. Codington for over 30 years.
5
As usual, the best care ever!
5
The new person that cleaned my teeth (sorry I can't remember her name) performed professionally and competently. Absolutely no complaints.
5
I was in recently for a cleaning and x-rays. As usual, the staff here goes over and beyond to make their patients feel comfortable. They all make going to the dentist a very pleasant trip.

As always, staff was pleasant, efficient and very gracious to me even though I was a bit late due to heavy traffic. In all the many years I've gone to Dr. Codington, have never had an unpleasant experience. I highly recommend Dr. Codington for excellent and detailed dental care.

Always a good experience in a friendly atmosphere. New hygienist did a good job of cleaning my teeth with no discomfort. I will always miss Cheri but Ashley is a nice addition to the team. Merry Christmas to everyone and Happy New Year.

I am one of those "fearful" patients! Heather, the dental hygenist, is the BEST I've EVER had!!! She is gentle, patient & super sweet.
5
Best Dentist in San Diego
5
Our family trusts Dr Codington completely! He is a fantastic dentist. Office is spotless, staff are super friendly and efficient. HIGHLY recommend.
5
I've been going to Dr. Codington since 1985. I had just moved here, had no dentist yet and my young niece was visiting from out of town when she developed a dental problem. I took her to Dr. Codington just because I had seen his shingle. Best inadvertent move I ever made. I was impressed with the way he handled my niece. If you're looking for competence and compassion in a dentist, go no further. And I can't say enough about his staff. They, too, are competent and friendly, the absolute best at what they do, from the front office to the exam rooms. I recommend Dr. Codington without reservation.
5
I never thought I'd say this about my dentist - but - I enjoy my visits. Dr. Coddington and his team are first class! GQ
5
Heather always does a wonderful job cleaning my teeth; and Dr. Codington is a super dentist!
5
I have been going to Dr Coddington, since my 28 year old daughter, Stacy, fell off a piece of climbing equipment on a Penasquitos playground when she was 3 or 4. She, her Dad, brother and I have been going to Dr Coddington, ever since. Family dentist at its very best.
5
Dr. Codington has been my dentist for over 25 years. He and his staff are exceedingly thorough caring, personable, professional, and efficient. I trust Dr. Codington implicitly and appreciate the way he and his staff value their patients. I wholeheartedly recommend them!
5
They are the best.
5
Thanks, Rachel did a great job and Dr. Coddington was a true professional as always. Loyal customer since 1995.
5
Tina was easy to work with, and did a great job. I called later that day to tell her about our favorite B&B in the Dordogne region of France. I'm not sure she got the message because I didn't hear back from anyone. The B&B is Ferme de Tayac. in the town of Les Eyzies de Tayac. Their website has information about the sights in that area. The charming town in Bordeaux they should visit is Saint Emilion - not far from Dordogne. Have a great trip. Murriel
5
As always, another professional and caring routine cleaning visit. Veronica listened carefully and answered all my questions. She gave me good suggestions for taking even better care of my teeth.
5
I have been a patient for over 20 years. You could not find a more caring, conscientious group than Dr. Codington's team. From the front desk personnel who will do battle with your insurance company, (thanks Joanne) to my favorite hygienist, Emily, who makes getting your teeth cleaned a positive experience. Dr. Codington is a genuinely nice man. He always takes the time to stop by and say hello even when I am there just to get my teeth cleaned. He is a perfectionist and will strive to make sure that his patients are satisfied with the care they receive. I wish that all healthcare could be such a positive experience.
5
Heather was great yesterday, as usual. Great dental practice. You never disappoint.
5
It was great as always. You and your staff are all very courteous and friendly. For the 34 years you have been talking care of my teeth you have done great work. Terry Carlson
5
Rachel was my hygienist and she did excellent work on me. I was very satisfied and I actually felt she did a good/thorough job.
5
Very professional staff.
5
I am extremely happy with Dr Codington and his team. When I graduated from college, I needed significant dental work. 20 years later, everything is still in place and my teeth are healthy. Thank you Dr Codington for such fine dentistry!
5
best dentist ever.
5
I give Dr. Codington and his staff 5 out of 5 stars. Been going there for 30 years. I know I can trust them to do the best for me.
5
I trust Dr Codington completely!
5
Everyone is always very friendly and the service is excellent. Heather is a wonderful person and I'm very happy she cleans my teeth year after year
5
I have been a patient of Dr. Codington for over 25 years and have always been happy with his work and the work of the hygienists. My mouth is in good hands!
5
Heather is always wonderful.
5
My last visit was like my every visit to your office. I can't say enough about your cheerful, professional staff. That's why we have stayed at this same office for thirty years. Tom and Ginny Walker and family
5
Thanks for always taking great care of me...no pain at all!!
5
Another great visit to the dentist! Dr. Codington and his team are always friendly, professional, punctual, and highly skilled.

Excellent staff, technicians, and without a doubt the best dentist ever!
5
My wife and I have trusted Dr. Codington and his wonderful staff to provide our dental needs for over 30 years.

Lovely office, lovely staff...Heather makes dental cleaning painless..thank you all!

Everything is very very good. I recommend "you" to friends and acquaintances whenever it is appropriate. We have the utmost confidence in Dr. Codington and Joanne and the office staff are excellent as are the support staff to Dr. Codington. I really like your new use of technology, texts, emails, etc. It is really helpful and much appreciated.
5
Dr. Codington & staff are always kind & courteous while providing the best possible dental care. Many of us have been going to him for so long that our grown children still choose to have their dental care with him. Our family would highly recommend his dental practice to friends and family.
5
Always the best! I have confidence that I am receiving the best in dental care at Dr Coddington's. In addition to keeping the technology new and procedures current, Dr Coddington and his staff are warm and very friendly.
5
Even though the dentist is never my favorite place to go - Dr. Codington's office makes it a lot easier. The hygienists are amazing and very friendly. And Dr. Codington is the best dentist and has made all my dental work painless and stress free.
5
Heather cleaned my teeth. Yay! I enjoy talking to her and she does a superb job on my teeth!! I also enjoy the country music that plays in the background. Country is definitely one of my favorites. On the other hand, I'd probably never return (or run screaming from the office) if rap music were playing, since it is the only music that I don't like. :-)
5
You always go out of your way to do the best job! I wouldn't go anywhere else.
