My husband and I moved from OC to North County San Diego in 1992. After one brief visit to a dentist I was referred to, and not being impressed, I was told by virtually everyone in Carlsbad to go to Dr. Bell. We were not disappointed and have been going ever since. He has repaired or smoothed a couple minor chips on my teeth from biting wrong on a fork/apple, what have you. Mostly though, we just get regular check ups, x-rays and cleanings. Speaking of cleanings, the entire staff front and back are exceptional. This makes the practice the shining star that it is, not the dentist alone. I sent a few referrals to them, and one was a friend who was terrified of the dentist her entire life but loved him. It is the little personal touches that make this family-owned practice stand above and beyond.
