Before this year, I last went to the dentist in 2005. My teeth were always good and I didn't think I actually needed to go every 6 months, and the dentist I used to go to seemed to always want to do a little filling or something that I didn't think I actually needed. But over the last 1-2 years my teeth have turned really yellow. My nephew recommended Dr. Woods when he found out I was in the market for a San Diego Dentist, so I set up an appointment for a cleaning - which I needed a lot worse than I thought. I liked all the people there, everyone was very warm and caring. Turned out I actually only needed two small fillings on my back teeth and everything else was ok. Dr. Woods set me up with vendors to restore the white color my teeth had lost since whitening wasn't a good option for me. Anyways, I couldn't be happier.
I found Dr. Woods because I needed a San Diego dentist I could trust after trying two others that were too slow and old-fashioned for me. I hadn't been to a dentist's office in years until about two years ago when I found a coupon and went to a dental clinic. I felt like a cow being herded around. They talked a lot and charge me for my two visits, but I never really got anything done. They just put me off and told me I needed another x-ray or consultation or that the dentist had to leave early and couldn't see me.
So I went to a different clinic. It was nearly as bad. After that, I didn't go anywhere for about 18 months, but then my tooth that the first clinic said was cracked started hurting. When I met with Dr. Woods, I found out it was infected and needed to come out.
My first experience with Dr. Woods was when I was already hurting. She got me in quickly and then dealt with my pain. Since she's been working with me, I haven't experienced any more dental pain. I needed the one extraction, a bridge to replace the missing tooth and also a crown on a tooth on the other side. I also needed two small fillings, which she did at the same time as fitting the crown.
I liked the digital x-rays and the 3D scan, both of which seemed to show a lot more than old-fashioned x-rays at the clinic did.
I was really worried about this dentist making my pain worse like dentists always had in the past, but she totally eliminated my pain and actually restored my faith in the medical professional.
I also like that Dr. Woods is a holistic dentist and doesn't use metal fillings or suggest dangerous procedures. I've already recommended her to one friend at my apartment complex, and I'll recommend her to anyone I know that needs dental work.
Paige Woods provided me options for the work to be performed to repair my teeth. She provided me information that helped me assess the risk for each procedure. I have trouble breathing though my nose; while Paige performed the procedure to repair my teeth she made sure I was able to breathe thru my mouth. There was no pain during the procedure; some of work Paige performed was the extraction of a tooth and repair to two other molars. I recommend Paige Woods to any individual that previously had a bad experience at the dentist, or fears going to the dentist, she will make you at easy, provide a painless procedure, and take good care of your teeth.
Dr Woods is everything u could want in a dentist.. Experienced, well read about current treatments and efficient. She provides care to her patients that is in their best interest and offers solutions to fit your budget. In addition, she is gentle and kind.. If u are needing a new dentist, I highly recommend Dr Paige Woods DDS
I went in to see Dr Woods to fill a cavity and have a chip filled, painless most comfortable dentist experience ever. Maybe the technology is getting better these days or she's just that good.. you decide
Took her time, was completely painless, and feel better that she is a holistic dentist and I dont run the risk of mercury poisoning
Dr. Woods and her dental assistant Jose are redoing eight crowns on the top front teeth. The crowns were applied incorrectly from another dentist. The prior procedure was jeopardizing the health of my teeth and the aesthetics was poor. I'm very satisfied with my first appointment today. I had no pain! I feel confident that my next appointment will be just as successful. Their professionalism, knowledge and bedside manner has been the best experience I've ever had in dental care. I'm so excited! I can't wait to see my permanent crowns. I look forward to a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile! I'm so grateful.
Since moving from out of state, I've been looking for a San Diego dentist I can trust. I had really let things go in the last couple of years, and by the time I got to California, I had a broken tooth and had lots of cavities that had gotten pretty bad. I'm trying to get healthy overall these days, and I knew I wanted to find a modern dentist that used non-toxic materials. I also wanted someone who could do what I needed quickly and efficiently, something the last dentist I went to couldn't manage.
When I called for an appointment, the staff made me feel like I was making the right choice for my needs, so I went in for a checkup and to meet Dr. Woods. She seemed the exact opposite of the old-fashioned dentist I had back home. At that first appointment, they did everything necessary to figure out the extent of my problems, including an x-ray and a 3D scan, which I'd never had before. Then, Dr. Woods explained all the problems and solutions available, including an extraction I needed done on the broken tooth. The treatment coordinator helped me understand the costs, which were reasonable.
I had the extraction first and got a temporary bridge to fill the space. It looked and felt fine. Then I went back to have the fillings I needed and the permanent bridge. They did those all at once. I'll need a crown on one of the teeth eventually, but the filling is holding for now and I can save that for a few months down the road.
I know that I shouldn't have waited so long to go to a dentist and I could have solved some of these problems before they got as bad as they were, but Dr. Woods didn't seem to judge me. She and the team just did the job and got things put back together. I'm grateful for that.
Dr woods is amazing. She was so caring and knowledgable about the extensive treatment I needed. I had a bunch of crowns done and they turned out beautiful and natural.
I would highly recommend her and her staff. Fantastic office.
Dr.Woods is amazing... She has amazing bedside manners and made me feel instantly comfortable. I went to her for a consult on veneers as I had cracks and chips on me front teeth. Her shots are painless and her work is beautiful. I get complements on my smile daily. Highly recommend Dr.Woods if you're looking to get a beautiful smile
Just saw Dr Paige Woods yesterday and so relieved that I found a dentist that understands me and my holistic lifestyle. I had some toxic mercury fillings that were causing me pain yesterday and feeling great today. Going back next week for my cleaning and possibly some porcelain veneers. Excited for my new smile.
The only San Diego dentist I could find to deal with my one shattered tooth (and other decayed teeth) in a way I felt would be cosmetically appealing with non-toxic materials is Dr. Woods. For some reason, most of the dentists that met my criteria were not located close enough to me in Mission Valley. She ended up doing an extraction, a bridge, and 2 veneers, all of which came out way better than expected. Happy to leave a review for her!
