Best dentists in the world.
My family has been going to Dr. Collado since 1993. He's an absolutely superb dentist with a very friendly and professional demeanor, fantastic staff and modern, state-of-the-art equipment.
Billing is reasonable and easy. During the twenty years we've used Carmel Mountan Ranch Dental Care we've not had a single issue.
Best of all--I've never been hurt or felt pain.
Dr. Carpenter has been a recent addition and he is super. Very thoughtful and considerate--and skilled--he complements the earlier staff perfectly.
I always have, and will continue to, recommend Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care as the best dentist office ever.

I have been to three dentists in my life; this one blows the other two out of the water. The state of the art technology, the awesome customer service - there is quite literally nothing that I would improve.

I can't say enough good things about the entire staff at Carmel Ranch Dental Care. Everyone is super friendly, Dr. Collado and Dr. Carpenter have a great touch and are very personable. Troy is my go-to Hygienist, and my cleanings and exams always fly right by.

We have been patients of Dr. Collado for over 15 years. We have 5 children and 4 of them have needed braces, and Dr. Collado did a beautiful job with their smiles.
Dr. Carpenter has joined the practice and we have had the opportunity to experience his wonderful chairside manner as well.
The entire staff is friendly and professional. We drive all the way from Encinitas for our appointments, and it's worth the trip every time!

Our family has moved a lot over the last few years and finding a new dentist has always been difficult.
We scored on our first try when we found Dr. Carpenter.
My children immediately took to him and look forward to future check ups. His patience and demeanor with them seems to come naturally.

I was further impressed when I received a call directly from Dr. Carpenter on a weekend after I had left a message after hours on a non-emergency issue.
The office staff has also been very helpful with scheduling, last minute appointments, re-scheduling, billing and dealing/explaining the insurance.
The whole office has gone the extra mile in supporting me and my family and I would recommend Dr. Carpenter and his staff to everyone.

My husband and I have been visiting Dr Daniel Collado from the past 4 years.. He is excellent both as a doctor and person.. He will explain clearly the process he is going to implement on our teeth and what are the changes that we can expect.. I definitely recommend Dr Daniel Collado if you are looking for the best dental care.. I also feel that he is very reasonable when it comes to money when compared to others..
The office staff are also very friendly.. They have a beautiful office.. When ever i visit the office, I will do all my shopping too :-) coz Costco, Home depot, Sprouts and many stores are very very near to the office..

DR COLLADO hand picks his staff for a great welcoming and relaxing environment! It's hard to understand but I enjoy going to the dentist! From the front office, to the back = beyond a great experience!

I went in for a first-time visit for a bridge re-cement. My old dentist is too far away in my current circumstances, so I needed to find a new one in my area. The dentist and technician were fast and efficient and it took one 1/2 hour, questionnaire and all. Office is very pleasant with current technology and staff is friendly and courteous. This is my now my new dentist! I would recommend Dr. Collado to anyone looking for a caring, gentle and efficient dentist.

Dr. Collado made a difficult crown replacement a little easier with his good humor and relaxed manner. The office is always so upbeat and cheerful that it's hard not to have a smile when you are there.

As always, my recent visit to Dr. Collado for a filling made me appreciate his expertise. My husband and I have been his patients for a number of years and we have always been extremely satisfied with his proficiency and knowledge, the cleanliness of his office, and the friendliness of all his staff. Thank you Dr. Collado! We are very lucky to have you for our dentist!

I have been going to Dr. Collado since I was a little kid. I have never had a more experienced or more enjoyable dentist experience in my entire 18 years on this earth. I highly recommend him to anyone. He is the one reason why I will not be moving away from the Carmel Mountain area.

It is amazing to watch a new crown being made. There was a warm and friendly atmosphere, with lovely piano music in the background, while I was getting prepared for a new crown. It is the best dental facility in San Diego!

So thankful for Dr. Collado. He is a fantastic and very honest dentist. My family and I are extremely pleased with him and his staff. It is, by FAR, the best dental practice I have ever been to.

We have been going to Dr. Collado's office for 15 years. We have always had a great experience. He handled both kids' braces too! I highly recommend them.

Everyone is so professional and they always make me feel at ease even though I come in with a lot of anxiety.


Believe it or not, I always enjoy my visits to Dr. Collado's office. Everyone is extremely friendly and Dr. Collado is so cheerful. His mood is contagious!

If you are new to the area and are looking for a new dentist, check out Dr. Collado and his staff. They are a friendly and caring staff. They are all wonderful and sensitive to your needs and will make going to the dentist a pleasurable experience.

My experience with the entire staff has always been wonderful. We are now going on 8 years as patients! Thank you.

From the moment I walked in the door this morning, I felt special. I was called by my first name, my hygienist Jennifer took time to "connect" with me on a personal level as she gathered my info, and she did a fantastic job cleaning my teeth. And Dr. Collado worked with me to find out why I'm having problems with some of my teeth. That took awhile. Superhero that he must be to be so patient, he ultimately provided a solution that was free! On top of all that, Beth took time to go through my many insurance questions as I change providers. I'm not lying when I say that my visit to the dentist was the highlight of my day today.

Dr. Collado and his staff are a very warm, personable, and friendly group. They are very caring and attend to all of your needs and concerns. I have recommended several friends who are equally pleased with the service provided. Thank you all :)

I had a perfectly lovely visit as has been the case each time I have come in. All the personnel and both Drs. were kind and professional.

I live in Orange County and drive down to get my dental work done here because Dan, Linda, and the staff are just awesome.
The facility is really nice and clean. I feel like a lot of care is put into my teeth. I don't feel like a stranger when I am there.
