"My mouth was in serious trouble. I had dentures and implants and they were all broken. I was desperate to fix my mouth. I came in with great trepidation because my last experience with implants was very unsuccessful. I have been treated so respectfully and kindly by everyone on his staff and by Dr. Briscoe himself. And I can’t thank everyone in this office enough for how they make me feel regardless if I have teeth or not, but especially now that I have a beautiful smile! I am very happy with the results and I’m going to miss everyone here." Patient
"When Dr. Briscoe started talking to me about having some cosmetic dentistry procedures done I was not very much for it. It was pretty scary and I made him wait two years before I made a decision.
"I have to say, I'm completely pleased with what he's done for my smile and for my confidence. I was always socially nervous in public because of my smile and I think it has contributed to my overall health and the health of my gums and definitely my confidence. I just feel great about it.
"The procedure was amazing — very involved but not a moment of pain. He is so gentle and his staff is so competent. I would recommend this to anybody." Alison Henry
"I have always had problems with my smile. When my dental work from a previous procedure at a different office began to deteriorate, I sought to correct my smile permanently. My journey led me to Dr. Briscoe's office.
"When I met with Dr. Briscoe, he helped me to see the big picture — not just the immediate results of a beautiful smile, but the lifelong effects of a healthy bite.
"He fixed everything, and my teeth are so white now! I have gained total confidence in my smile, and I am so happy with everything.
"I would tell anyone to come to Dr. Briscoe to receive the best care possible." Emi Hayazaki
"Over a year ago it was becoming clear that both the appearance and the function of my teeth were deteriorating. I had not realized that with the deterioration of appearance went a loss of self–confidence.
"Dr. Briscoe enhanced my smile. At no time during the process did I view the experience as the least bit traumatizing, painful or inconvenient. Thanks to Dr. Briscoe's skill and that of his staff, there was a minimum effect on my normal routine.
"Dr. Briscoe's office incorporates the latest in design, technology and equipment. Architecturally, everything projects calm and relaxation. The patient can even watch a movie! I can enthusiastically recommend Dr. Briscoe to friends and associates. Albert Bottoms
"I do three things for a living. One is that I write and edit books and articles. I am the author of three Wall Street Journal best sellers. Number two is that I coach executives. My clients are CEOs or could be CEOs of huge companies. I also give a lot of keynote speeches.
"Often huge pictures of my face are posted wherever I am speaking, so my smile and how my smile looks is very important.
"I'd like to give my highest recommendation to Dr. Briscoe's office. They are very sensitive people, they are always positive and upbeat, they are cognizant of patient concerns and how the patient feels during the process, and most important for me — they do a great job!" Marshall Goldsmith
"I've been coming to Dr. Briscoe since he started his office here in La Jolla. When I started out, my teeth were yellow and crooked. Now my teeth look great, and I feel very secure about my smile.
"A lot of friends ask me who fixed my teeth because my smile looks so great. I always tell them that a visit to Dr. Briscoe's office is worthwhile.
"I would recommend, even if you have another dentist, you should try coming to La Jolla Dental Care. He is a very good dentist because he is kind and gentle. Everybody else working in the office is very kind and well trained.
"There are a lot of dentists out there but Dr. Briscoe's office is the best place to be." Pilar Jensen
"As a patient of Dr. Briscoe, I am extremely pleased with the device that he fitted for me. I had a problem with sleep apnea and snoring, which was a problem for my wife, and I was in a constant state of exhaustion.
"The device was recommended by my pulmonologist and my cardiologist as something I really needed to have, so I came to Dr. Briscoe. He is very experienced with several devices.
"He fitted it for me, did the impressions, ordered it and when it came two weeks later, he fine toned it and it was perfect. That night, I noticed an immediate difference! I was able to sleep through the night almost every night of the week. My wife loves it, she can sleep uninterrupted.
"The devices is very easy to use and I have experienced no problems while sleeping. It slips in and out easily and I got used to it almost immediately.
"I highly recommend talking to Dr. Briscoe about it if you have a snoring problem or sleep apnea, he is the expert. Even the staff was incredibly supportive and helped with insurance claims." Anonymous
"I came here to get Invisalign because my teeth were really crooked, and I was too embarrassed to get braces. I discovered Invisalign and researched the best dentist in San Diego and Dr. Briscoe was the top choice.
"My experience has been really awesome and it's cool to have seen my teeth shift before my eyes! It's also great how quick it is, having seen some of my friends with braces for up to two to four years.
"I used to hide my smile because I knew how crooked they were, but now I smile a lot more and I get so many compliments!" Nero
"I delayed coming to a dentist for thirty years. I didn't want to come in until I chipped a tooth and ran out of oral pain relieving gel. At that point, I couldn't put it off any more. I had to find a dentist.
"When I came in to Dr. Briscoe's office, I was very scared and nervous about what I was about to do. That was about 3 or 4 months ago, and I can't tell you how pleased I've been with the service of Dr. Briscoe and everyone in the office.
"Being here has been a very nice experience — so nice that I am getting over another fear of mine: public speaking.
"If you have any fear, I encourage you to come to Dr. Briscoe's office because they make you feel at home, and it's very comfortable, as well as worth the time and effort." Bob Whitney
"I was diagnosed with mild to moderate sleep apnea, and my pulmonologist recommended either a CPAP machine or an oral device. My cardiologist confirmed, stating with my history it was too risky to not use either device. Additionally, my wife constantly complained about my loud snoring which interrupted her sleep every night. Over the last few years, there were only two or three nights a year in which I slept straight through the night. I was always tired.
"I learned Dr. Briscoe was very experienced in fitting dental devices for his patients to assist breathing during the night. For me this seemed like a much better way to go as contrasted to wearing a CPAP mask over my head every night and the constant sound of the machine.
"In the first visit Dr. Briscoe examined me, took measurements, made impressions, and explained device choices. We selected the SomnoMed device. His office staff assisted greatly in placing insurance claims to my dental and medical insurance carriers. The bulk of the cost was covered by my insurance. The custom-made device was ordered, and Dr. Briscoe had it for me 2 weeks later. He fine-tuned the fit, and from the first night my snoring was almost completely eliminated! In the first week I slept straight through the night for 5 of the 7 nights. The SomnoMed device was very easy to get used to, and presented no sleeping problems.
"I highly recommend consulting Dr. Briscoe if you have a snoring problem, or sleep apnea. Enjoy rested alert days, and your spouse or partner will also greatly appreciate it." Dan Crotta
"Dr. Briscoe was nice enough to treat me on an emergency basis on July 5th, right after the holiday. I’m very happy with my service here! The office is amazing with a beautiful facility and friendly staff. He got me in within 30 min and fixed my emergency situation! Thank you for all your help, I will definitely be back." M
The office staff is extremely personable and friendly. They really take the time to make sure you are comfortable and at ease with their practice. Plus, they do great work! I get so many complements on my smile thanks to Dr. Briscoe and his staff. I can’t thank them enough! I was stunned at how friendly and gentle the procedure and staff was! Barely felt as they were in my mouth, which was a first for me! Ann
Experience: I came to La Jolla Dental Care after finding them online when I was considering getting braces or Invisalign. The first time I actually came into the office I was surprised by how attractive it was. The waiting room itself has a really calming feel to it, and all the people operating the front room are very kind and attentive. I've been given Invisalign through them and I've been so happy with the results i see. I truly am happy and excited to come to Dr. Briscoe's office due to the new Invisalign trays I receive and all of the friendly dentists that work there. My entire experience with the business has been extremely positive and I have no complaints.
Office Differences: The office here is so much more pleasing to the eye than other dentists I have been to in the past. The waiting room reminds me of a spa and I always feel that everyone here is truly very kind and professional. Usually with dentists in the past I seem to just go in, get work done, and then leave, but here I truly feels like an experience where I speak and connect with real people. Lexi
"I came to Dr. Briscoe on a recommendation from a friend. I had all of my teeth redone with veneers and my teeth look so amazing and natural now. I look 10 years younger! I'm extremely happy with how they turned out. Probably the best thing that has happened is that I can now chew my food easily in the rear.
Looking at the before and after photos, I hadn't realized how bad my teeth really were! Now my smile is bright and beautiful and I feel really good about my self and no longer shy away from a photo.
So I would like to thank Dr. Briscoe and the staff. I am deeply appreciative for all the work that has been done, thank you." Don H
"Dr. Briscoe is so kind and such a conscientious dentist who truly seems to care about his patients. The entire staff — front and back office — are similarly professional, kind, and conscientious. Not enough good things to say about this office.
"The procedures I need involve veneers and crowns. Dr. Briscoe's work is so stellar, it will definitely be worth the cost! He has pictures hanging in the office of his work and his teeth are beautiful and natural looking. Plus, he doesn't push unnecessary expensive procedures on you like teeth whitening, etc. (I've been to other dentists who are just pushy about trying to schedule you for extra, expensive procedures.)
"The dental hygienists are great as well!
Plus, the office manager is Madeleine who couldn't be nicer or sweeter. I am in the process of scheduling the procedures right now. (I had a botched root canal/crown from another dentist that Dr. B. is helping fix.)
"I am looking forward to FINALLY being pain free with my teeth! Also, office is in La Jolla (in the village) and parking is usually pretty easy to find."
"I have been afraid of dentists my whole entire life. And I have just completed more work than I thought I would have in my entire lifetime.
"Anyone who is afraid of the dentist is absolutely cheating themselves out of getting their teeth fixed, because this has been one of the best experiences I have ever had.
"I think its because it's a team. What I find is that Dr. Briscoe's office is warm, it's friendly, it's contagious. And I am just the happiest patient of anybody who has ever experienced dentistry. Dr. Briscoe is one of the kindest, most gentle, caring dentist I probably will ever know in my life."
