"Three visits for multiple treatments"
5 50Reviewed 25 Sep 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Fillings,Extractions
In 3 visits, I've replaced all my silver fillings, had a tooth extraction as I didn't want a root canal, and got 3 cavities fixed. These were taken cared of in a very expeditious manner. I'm pleased with the results and especially with the cost when compared to what my U.S. dentist wanted to charge. I will definitely go back for ALL my dental needs but will only see Gilberto, DDS. He was recommended by a friend and I'm so grateful I went to see him.

My experience has always been great from beginning to end starting with my call to the gal as soon as I get to the border (via the trolley, it's just easier! $5 round-trip) She. lets Hector know I'm crossing the border so he can come pick me up. I then put my phone on airplane mode to avoid getting any potential international roaming charges. I walk to the pickup point which seems a little far (15 min.) but I consider it my exercise for the day. If someone in your party is elderly (like my 88 year old dad when he comes with me) or handicapped, Hector is allowed to pickup where the taxis are. It's much closer, you just have to let the gal know when you call to be picked up where the taxis are. Once at the air conditioned, clean clinic, Gilberto gets right down to business and I'm always surprised when he's done, but he's so efficient and knows what he's doing!! I always pay in cash to get the 5% discount on top of there already discounted prices!! Hector takes me back to the border. He's so nice and a pleasure to talk to.

"They are wonderful!"
5 50Reviewed 27 Oct 2014 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Veneers,Root Canals,Dental Crowns
4 veneers and 6 root canals

They are wonderful! I have had a lot of dental work done there root canals, crowns ect. they beat all of the American dentists quality and price! If I had to depend on quality care in the US I would be wearing dentures. Going back in 3 days for more work, I don't want to see a dentist in the US anymore.

Very good dentistry! I had 8 zirconia crowns placed on my top front teeth, giving me a new smile. Everything turned out great! I look 10 years younger. They took very good care of me, and I will recommend Sam Dental to everyone I know.

"Slow or no response to inquiries and emails"
2.3 50Reviewed 14 Mar 2014 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation

(I didn't use my real name) This is an okay clinic. Advertises paediatric dentistry, but no paediatric dentist actually on staff. No one speaks English either. But I and my family, have had lot of work done here, primarily due to cost and convenience.

Biggest gripe: slow or no response to inquiries and emails. Someone named "Ceci" responds occasionally. . . Maybe they don't always have email available. It's frustrating. We're looking for another clinic.

Dr Aylema Rodriguez responded to this review:

I am sorry that you had any difficulties in communication from Cesi. She is normally on top of everything, but as 95% of all communication comes through our main website,, it sometimes can be confusing to correspond through this third party website. Once she has answered an e-mail, it is best to correspond directly to In any case, I appreciate your comment so I can address it with our phone receptionist, to make sure she is doing her job. As to the comment that none of the dentist speak English, that is not a fair comment. True, they don't speak English like Americans, however, please remember that you are not in the US, but in Mexico. All our dentists can speak English sufficiently to be able to communicate with the patients, and explain their treatments. In any case, there are two Americans on staff, including myself, who are completely bi-lingual. We are always available in case there is a difficulty in communication. As for the pediatric dentist, you would be hard pressed to find a clinic in Tijuana with a full time dentist for children. Like our root canal specialists, the children's dentists come as needed. She actually works out of multiple clinics. Jim, Marketing Director

"I will be going back"
4.8 50Reviewed 18 Jun 2013 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Extractions
2 extractions

Unlike their American counterparts, I was very pleased to find out that the dentist at Sam Dental saw patients on Saturday. Even though I only reached out to them on Friday afternoon, they quickly responded to me and offered me my choice of Saturday appointments. I will be going back to this office in the next couple of weeks. I am very thankful that they are available, as I have become completely disillusioned with dentists in San Diego.

Dr. Rodriguez has also continued with several ongoing educational courses and seminars. She specializes in restorative dentistry, especially in preparing teeth for crowns and bridges. She does excellent work, and although she has a young face, she is considered by our dental lab, (which serves over 100 dentists), one of the very best dentists in the city. When she prepares teeth for crowns, they are ALWAYS done right, giving the teeth and crowns a perfect seal so that they will last for the maximum time possible. Patients also love her gentle touch.
