My first experience with holistic dentistry. I learned so much about why dental health is important and not just getting the procedures. Each experience is specialized and tailored to each patient. One procedure does not fit all at Dental Wellness Center.

I looked high and low for a Holistic dentist to remove my Amalgam fillings. Finding Dr. McBride was the perfect solution as the driving distance was only 1/2 hour. The whole staff was terrific. They took the time to explain the procedures and treated me with the upmost respect.
Dr. McBride has a great system to protect both the patient and the staff. He has a great chair-side manner and really made sure I was comfortable and informed. I felt very confident in his expertise and my teeth look beautiful.

I would go to him for all my dentist needs but I prefer a closer location for the routine stuff.

Always so friendly and professional. Real care and attention to details and yet personal. You might think you are getting a better deal at a place just because insurance has them on a list. This dental team brings the highest value at a reasonable price. Great people.

I went to go see Dr. McBride because I was suffering with TMJ and getting severe headaches. He was very knowledgeable, and I was very happy to find someone who had some solutions for me. His treatment plan was simple, but it was very effective and I rarely get headaches due to my TMJ. I am so happy I went to see him, only regret it waiting so long to go and tearing my stomach up living on advil.

Dr. McBride is a great dentist. Most painless I have ever experienced. He doesn’t push for cosmetic procedures (braces) unless your bite is causing you issues. He’s mainly concerned with your overall health and how your dental health effects that. The hygienist is sweet and patient. All the staff are kind and professional. I took my 11 year old niece there and she left wondering why we ever took her to any other dentist. She’s actually looking forward to her next visit.

Extremely Friendly staff. I felt very comfortable everytime I came in. I have already recommended the Dental Wellness Center to my wife and a friend. I went in for mercury amalgam removal and its was all removed with any pain. Mr. McBride took all the right precautions and teaches you whats going on in your mouth and what they can do to fix it. It was just a great experience and the staff is so amazing!!

I just can’t enough wonderful things about Leanne, Rachel, Julie and the amazing Dr. McBride! They are all such caring and comforting people.

I had full dentures done about which I was nervous, due to all the extractions needed and then just the thought of dentures.

Dr, McBride took so much time educating me on the process and I immediately felt at ease.
The thing that impressed me so much to proceed was that he is well-known as an artist in this field and takes great care and time to build them himself.

They fit perfectly without adjustment an hour after all my extractions. And I only took a Tylenol post-surgery! Dr. Telles was his referral for the surgery and I could not have been more pleased with Dr. Telles either.

It’s been about 4 months now and I could not be happier with my decision to go with perfect-fitting dentures from Dr. McBride. And saved $40k over implant costs.

Dentures may not be for everyone, but neither are implants! You owe it to yourself to talk with Dr. McBride before making a final decision.

I would never go to another dentist after experiencing Dr McBride and his merry team. Dr McBride has pioneering knowledge and abilities way beyond the competition. I fully trust his work and enjoy his authentic, jovial nature, which makes “going to the dentist” a comfortable, friendly and priceless experience.
If anyone is seeking the best, look no further!
Thank you to all at Dr McBride’s.

I highly recommend this dental office. I recently became a patient of Dr. McBride. I am so grateful to have found him and his staff. They are all very kind and understanding. I have never felt so comfortable at a dental office. Dr. McBride has helped me understand the steps to improving my dental and overall health. After seeing Dr. McBride I am much more confident in understanding my own health.

if you care about your well-being and health, please care about your teeth. they are the root and the meridian to every organ in your body.
after watching root cause after my 6 root canal extractions, it made sense as to why my root canals were the cause of my phantom nerve pain on my front ankles, knees, back of my spine, back of my head, plus burning of the eyes, depression, anxiety.

I had to take a initiation for my health before it is too late. I came here for consultation for my maloclussion of the bite, displaced tooth, gum health, and overall, a game plan (as he said) to hopefully bring my teeth back to its optimal health and correct alignment.

it will be a long journey, it is not going to happen overnight, but it is well worth it. I will post pics of the results and I pray that there will be no complications.

I am looking forward to this game plan that he will set up for me. I am grateful for holistic dentistry.

This office is a class act. It is clean. Everyone is friendly. Dr. McBride is the best I’ve ever seen or met in dentistry. He knows what proper health-full dental work is and isn’t, and has been a pioneer and champion in fighting for the truth about what is really going on in our mouths. I feel good every single time I am in his office. For years I’ve known how rigged modern dentistry is. Right here, in our community, is a real life hero bringing solutions to serious problems that modern dentistry has caused. I loved my old dentist but he lied to me. Flat out lied to me. And the dentist before him also did me no favors. I know I’m getting the best care in this practice and I would encourage anyone who cares about truth and health to choose Dr. McBride and his team of qualified professionals.

Dr. Robert Mcbride is one of the best dentists I’ve ever had the privilege to meet and I come from a family of dentists! I recently had a bike accident and he, not only made himself available and fit me into his busy schedule, but he also made himself available over the weekend while he was traveling to make sure I had all the necessary care and information to support me while I was going through the motions after my accident. He gives you 100% of quality time and attention to your needs. I would recommend him to anyone who really wants the best for their oral needs Thank you, Doc!.

Impeccable service. I will never step foot in a conventional dentists office again.

Doctor McBride is amazing. He’s extremely informative and open to questions and wants you to understand and learn anything and everything you can about your mouth and oral health. Things I’ve never known my entire life and things no other dentist has ever explained to me I’ve learned here.

All staff is so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend.

On a side note – they are not partnered with insurance and everything is paid out of pocket. They will work with you to bill back your provider however I am willing to pay the costs up front even if it cannot be covered. The care, the service, and the future of my oral health is worth every penny spent here.

This office is amazing. Everyone that works there is so nice, takes time with you and makes you feel at ease. Everything is very clean. They strike the perfect balance between homey and professional. They have coffee and tea pods while you wait. Although I’ve never had to wait in the years I’ve been going. HGTV plays on little TVs in each room and classical music plays throughout the office. They make you feel at home. If I had to use one word to describe the experiences I have at the office, I would say ‘comfortable.’ After having awful dental experiences all my life, I finally have found a place that I actually enjoy going to. They do not take insurance but that allows them to take a holistic approach. Your oral health will never be in better hands.

I was very impressed with how thorough Dr. McBride was on the first 2 hour exam and how much information he gathered concerning my oral health. He and his staff imparted this information to me and mapped out a treatment plan. Over the course of several months of treatment he has restored my oral health and given my life back with more energy and no pain. I highly recommend Dr. McBride and the Dental Wellness Center.

This is biologic dentistry, or alternative dentist, where they are actually concerned for your health and what might be toxic to the patient, like mercury and fluoride, which they do not use. I love the dental hygienist, she is gentle, knowledgeable, and thorough. You are in good hands at Dr.Robert McBride’s dentistry wellness center.

We had our first apt with Janell and Dr McBride for my 6yro son who had a tooth ache and many teeth that need attention. From the moment we walked in everyone was so warm and welcoming! The kids love the fish (esp Buddy). We were educated about how pH effects your oral hygiene, saw the sugar bugs from his teeth under a microscope and was taught how to correctly floss, brush and clean our tongues (my son even reminded me how to do it this morning 🤣). We were referred out as the work my son needs would be done best by a pediatric dentist, but once we finish that we will be here for our regular cleanings and maintenance. My daughter and I are already signed up for the next few weeks to check out our mouths! This is place place to be if you want to know how to truly keep your mouth and body healthy from the inside out.

If I could use just one way to describe this office and dentist it would be genuinely honest! I fully trust them with caring for my family. I’ve had a little dental anxiety from other office experiences elsewhere but I feel at home here. I moved away and went to a dentist near my new Home who told me I needed over $3,000 worth of work done, then I decided to go back to Dr McBride for an opinion on that only to be told I didn’t need any of that work! I can’t believe that some dentists don’t have the integrity needed to care for their patients. Dr McBride and his staff care more about you and your health and overall well being than they do about upcharging you for this and that like many dentists do. I highly recommend them and I will continue to make the drive to see them for every dental need for myself and my children. My oldest daughter gets scared about new experiences but this is one dental office that she does not hassle me about knowing she has an appt. I really can’t say enough good about our experiences here and how much I appreciate them. 🙂

Because I am battling stage four prostrate cancer I have sought out the services of a holistic dentist because I know good health begins in the mouth.

When I met Bob I could tell right away that he actually cared about me and my oral health. I found him to be incredibly knowledgeable about his calling in life. In fact I just knew that he is as good at what he does as I am at what I do. I felt like I was with an old friend and not someone that I had just met.

He thoroughly explained what he found out about my mouth’s status and educated me as to options and procedures available. I asked a lot of questions and tirelessly he answered each question with out any hesitancy. He was a powerhouse of information!

To my amazement his staff was equally knowledgeable.

I was informed of every step they performed and made to understand the how and why of it. As for the pricing and such my wife and I were fully informed of all costs up front. The cost were well within reason in my opinion, a rare thing these days. The patient is kept in the “inside loop” and allowed to participate in the treatment process as well as formulating a treatment plan. But the best part is the wonderful “Family atmosphere” between all staff and patients that I have gotten to observe.

Folks this is a practice that in this day and age is like a breath of fresh air in our southern California jaded atmosphere. They really do care all about our oral health and education about it. Do yourself a big favor and check out this oasis of dental care, you will not be disappointed in the least.

Oh ya…the offices are well maintained and the main waiting room decor is fantastic with a tropical fish tank in one wall that is impossibly clean. I especially like the living room couch. There is a puffer fish with blue eyes that is very friendly and greets us when ever we come up to the fish tank. Did I say that the Doctor and staff are wonderful people who love people?

What are you waiting for get on over there and say, “David Sloane” sent me.”

You will thank me for sure 🙂

I love the holistic approach of Dr. McBride. Because of his expertise, he was able to save me from having a root canal. The office staff is very friendly and welcoming to my 3 children as well.

I wish I had known him when I was younger. All the suffering I went through because of a fundamentally crooked jaw|teeth structure would have been unnecessary.

This is a fabulous place to get the right work done on your teeth. Lots of dentists can fix you… in the moment and then a few years later or a few after that, their work needs to be re-done because it was substandard to begin with. At this place, nothing is below board. It is the smoothest running machine with a totally dynamic and supportive staff. They really care about you and getting you the best dental care you can get anywhere. Plus, they’re attentive to health and safety, and know the truth about mercury and how to remove those nasty leaking health destroying amalgams with the least amount of discomfort on your part. It’s expensive, but it’s done right the first time! That’s a big plus. The Doc is incredible and his staff make a home one wants to return to again and again when the mouth needs to be attended to!

Dr. McBride has one of the most thorough patient evaluations I’ve ever been do. In my search for a holistic dentist I bounced around from dentist to dentist until I found Dr. McBride. His in depth evaluation combined with education about each aspect, the pros and cons, alternatives had me understanding exactly what was going on with my oral health, options to address it and the pros and cons of each. Highly recommended!
