Review from Yelp

This is a continuation of my last review of clear choice....
I can honestly say I don't remember a THING for the next handful of hours, which is awesome! Lol when I woke up, they were in the process of 'installing' my new smile. And even though, when they handed me a mirror, I resembled a Halloween jack o lantern, I had a FULL SET of BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT teeth. Did I cry? You bet I did.
For the next few hours I was put into the recovery room, a room with a super comfy recliner, that I readily passed out in, a couch for my dad, WiFi, movies to watch and a fridge stocked with anything I could want, applesauce, yogurt, waters , etc. they came In to check on us a few times, and I believe my dad even caught a nap for a bit. they once again went over meds and I what I could expect and what I should be doing as far as aftercare is concerned, and we went home.
The professionalism and unwavering support I have received and continue to receive from the entire staff at clear choice has been nothing short of amazing. I will keep the current temporary teeth for five months, while everything heals, then I will go back and receive my permanent ones. Any and all questions I have had, they have been more than happy to answer, even the receptionists are extremely knowledgeable about the procedures and have been able to help me when I have needed. Would I do this over again? In a heartbeat, YES.
Side note: I had FULL upper and lower done. If this is the case in your situation, take two weeks off from work. Give yourself time to heal properly and not be stressed about having to go back before your body is ready. I went back after a week and it was too soon, I ended up taking another week off. if you have any questions for me please feel free to ask!!
All in all, this has been most certainly a life changing experience. I am still getting used to having a beautiful smile that I am PROUD of, after going so long with one I was so ashamed and embarrassed of, but every day that passes I am more and more confident and I am beginning to feel, once again, like that bubbly social butterfly I once was. I cannot thank you enough, everyone at clear choice, for not only giving me my smile back, but giving me my LIFE back. You all are absolutely amazing and I am forever grateful. Please don't ever stop doing what you do, because you all change lives.

Yesterday I had my All On 4 surgery. The steps leading up to the procedure and the surgery itself far exceeded my expectations. My new teeth are beautiful and I wish to thank the excellent doctors and support staff at Clear Choice San Diego for my new smile.

Khatami and consultant Greg Sain for the most thorough and caring experience in my dental history,at the Clear Choice Sorrento Valley office.If you want to "truly" understand your individual choices with per honesty,and your future health in mind,this is the place to go.Being "around the block" with other dentists,save your time,and start with Clear Choice .You will not regret it.

Review from Yelp

I was just following up on a review I wrote almost 4 years ago! I can't believe it has been that long since I had my implants done! I just wanted to say that I still feel, this is the best thing I have ever done in my life! I can't believe how my life has changed since having my entire upper arch done back in 2013! I was going to be calling to make my yearly follow up appointment and I ran across Yelp when I was looking for the number to call. I decided to write an update. Really, I am not exaggerating or anything, this was the best decision I have made in my life. I wish I would have done this when I was in my twenties, it would have saved years of pain, of embarrassment, of MONEY!! All those years of dental co-pays, rinses, charges! My teeth are still perfect with NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER!! If there is anyway you can swing it, do it. Anyone over 50 years of age should consider getting their teeth "updated", they'll be better than your originals, I can almost guarantee it! Anyways, the staff at the San Diego ClearChoice were always incredible, professional and great! Thank you again Dr. Perkins and see you soon!

Review from Yelp

I did my research for dental implants , just for upper (I learned 6 in 1 or 4 in 1 would be my plan)
the team at ClearChoice provide a very clear and concise plan and cost estimates. Made my decision that I would go with ClearChoice before I got to my car. 2 months later, went in for my procedure and BAM! I walked out of there with a beautiful upper set of teeth and at that time no pain....was prepared and expected lots of pain , swelling and bruising WOW..was I in for a surprise- off the pain pills (only took 2 in a 24 hour period) and the swelling hit day 3 (so minimal) and 1 little bruise. I could not have been more please with the outcome and the recovery. I smile SO MUCH...all the time. Note that expectations were set, I was not going to be macking on steak and apples in the next week. I know what to expect for next 6 months and am taking advantage of the changes to make my eating habits more healthy. heck, I have a temporary bridge, cannot imagine how much better the permanent one is going to be.
If you want quality, a caring team , ClearChoice may just be for you!!!

Review from Yelp

I am a current patient and will be having the surgery done in about 2 and 1/2 weeks. They are extremely professional and kind beyond belief. They have worked with me every step of the way. There are so many variables in my case, ( I'm waiting for proceeds from the sale of my house, and I'm moving to the Caribbean when that goes through), but they have been extremely accommodating throughout the process. They are even planning on flying me back to the San Diego office to finish my procedure, so I don't have to go to another office that might be closer. I could finish up with my final implants in the Tampa office as it would be much closer to my new home, but now I don't have to because of their generosity. I worked with Greg Sain on the logistics, and he was fantastic. Give him a call, you won't be disappointed!
I'll post pics when I have my new beautiful smile and have completed the process.

Everyone was great. They work as a team. The dental tech. Lenny did a wonderful job on my teeth, I was lucky to meet him. The best decision I made,wish I would have done it earlier. Thank you Clear Choice in San Diego.

I want to thank Dr. Scott Perkins for taking very good care of my mommy. He is a very honest good hearted Dr. I would totally recommend him. The staff there is amazing ... Very friendly and helpful. Thank you so much Dr. Scott Perkins.

Review from Yelp

I can not say enough good things about my experience with Clear Choice San Diego. They are extremely professional, very friendly and nice. Most importantly they deliver what they promise. I highly recommend them. You can tell they care very much about their patients, the staff is all wonderful and obviously it's a great work environment. Yes, they are expensive, but worth every penny and once you pay them, the great service continues.

Review from Yelp

Though they didn't do any work on me they were honest and forthright about their abilities and limitations in my case. Many people would give you the "We can do it" pitch only to get substandard work done. This was not their approach. I appreciated that.

Review from Yelp

This dental office was a game-changer for me. Here is my story

I came in requesting the all-in-four procedure. That's right, I wanted it done by my choice because my teeth are breaking and suck. After Holli explained to me in detail the 3 procedures which would complete the treatment, she took a CT-Scan and we talked for about 30 mins while she answered all my questioned I prepared (I literally had a notebook). Then Dr. Perkins came in and told me he WOULD NOT do the procedure because it would be unethical. He said that if he wouldn't do the procedure on his kids, he wouldn't do it to me. He told me that even though my teeth sucks, I should pursue other treatments. That was suprising. Here I was with 40k to spend on the treatment and this dentist told me he wouldn't do it.

That should put into perspective the ethical and moral convictions in this office. He could have just dont what I asked and made a handsome profit, but instead he gave me valuable advice which I really needed. I now still have my original teeth and a new perspective on the REAL treatment I need. Oh yea, he even spent a good half hour diagnosing the issues I currently have, which isn't his responsibility since he is an implant specialist and not a private practice doctor! Talk about going above and beyond.

Thank you Clear Choice! You guys are truly special and caring people. You saved me in more ways than just money. Highly recommended for HONEST treatment.

Review from Google

Initially, I did not feel that it was a good thing to do. That is, I was going to remove my remaining 10 "good" teeth. In reality, they were not that good. I had pain in most of them. After thinking about it for about a couple of weeks, I decided to do the work in my upper teeth. Immediately after the surgery, I felt the difference. Not having to deal with the partial removable bridge that I had in the front which felt almost every bite I took, was the best thing that happened to me at that moment. From that day on, my life changed. I was able to eat, smile, and forget about the pain my other teeth gave me everyday. I am happy I took such a decision. The money spent was well worth it. It was a wise decision.

Review from Google

WOW!!!! Where do I begin!!! CLEAR CHOICE has changed my life forever!!!! I had forgotten how to smile. . . .When I decided I was going to talk to someone about the implants, I checked both places. I felt like with the other place, you were just a number to them, at Clear Choice, it is like you have become part of their Family. . .It was the best thing I ever did for myself. . .my ONLY regret is waiting so long. . . .I can't even begin to tell you how much I have advanced in my career this past several months!!!!! It is amazing what a SMILE says!!!! DON'T WAIT ANY LONGER!!!!! You owe it to yourself!!!!

Review from Yelp

It's been a year since I found myself in need of replacing all of my upper teeth. My dentist recommended dentures and I went for a consult with a prosthodondist in Escondido. The idea of having removable dentures and the cost, both initial and ongoing, led me to investigate dental implants. I first went to the "other" major implant center in San Diego and had my first consult. The cost scared me off and I resolved myself to the removable dentures. With my wifes encouragement I went to Clear Choice for a second consultation. The process was exactly the same except the price, it was $9,000 less for the exact same procedure. This low price concerned me so I did a lot of investigating and found very positive reviews. I scheduled the procedure and can attest that it was absolutely painless throughout the 3 hour procedure. I wore earbuds to listen to music and after the buds came out a couple of time Dr. Sharafi just smiled and taped them down. I recommend bringing your mp3 player and own music, it really helps to distract and pass the time. Three hours is a long time.
The discomfort after the procedure was minimal and I was off the "heavy" pain meds the second day finding Ibuprofen worked better than the narcotics with no side effects. The recovery went without incident until one week before I was to be fitted for my permanent teeth. On a Friday evening while eating dinner the temporary appliance broke in half right in the middle. I was leaving the following afternoon for a buiness trip and thought I would have to cancel. I called the emergency answering service, knowing that Dr Perkins was out of State at a conference, and was shocked when he called me back within the hour. He assured me he would take care of it and sure enough had me in and out of the office the next morning with plenty of time to make my flight. Unbelievable service!
I was fitted with my permanent appliance about a month ago and went back for a final adjustment last week. I Love my new teeth. They look natural (just like my real teeth) and no one believes me when I tell them they're "false".
Beyond my complete satisfaction with my new teeth I'm equally satisfied, actually ecstatic, with the entire process and patient care. The staff at Clear Choice are professional, courteous and made me feel like a family member. This is especially true of Dr. Perkins. I have worked in health care for 30 years and can sincerely say that Dr. Perkins has the best bedside manner of any health care professional that I have ever known.
My apologies for this long review but I felt compelled to write a complete description of my experience at Clear Choice San Diego. If you are considering dentures I encourage you to get a free consult at Clear Choice. When considering the long term, 10+ years, of dentures vs. implants I think you'll discover that the implants are very competitive. More importantly they are truly like your own teeth. I Love mine!

Review from Yelp

I've had a lot of dental work done for many years and I get really anxious each time I go to the dental office. I had a failing bridge (upper 8 front teeth) when I came to ClearChoice and needed urgent replacement/treatment. Teeth anchoring the bridge have been deteriorating and couldn't be saved. I was devastated as I have spent a lot of money and been through many dental woes, only to have the bridge fail in less than 5 years. With anguish, I researched and sought consultation from different dental offices. The prices and varying opinions raised my anxiety level.

My initial consultation with Amy at ClearChoice in San Diego provided thorough information, which allowed me to make an educated decision. At first I was shocked and terrified with the treatment options which were more invasive than what I anticipated. She patiently responded to all my inquiries, and promptly returned calls & emails. There was no pressure at all, she was efficient, mindful of my worries and pleasant to work with. Elizabeth, Theresa, Alex and other staff members were also very professional, warm & friendly. Dr. Perkins & Dr. Sharafi not only delivered, but exceeded what I could hope for from my dental experience. I was surprised, and definitely relieved, not to feel pain and recovered quicker than I anticipated. They made sure I was satisfied before the final product was finished. The ClearChoice team kept me informed, prepared me for each step and helped alleviate my anxiety with the care and quality of service they provided. Any concerns I had were addressed and they gave me honest feedback. The service was just excellent. I really felt like I was valued as a patient.

For years I have been conscious and very cautious with my teeth. ClearChoice gave my teeth a new life and a new smile . My teeth feel so much stronger now. I can bite and chew without worrying that my teeth would break or fall out (this happened a few times with my old bridge, unfortunately). It's definitely worth the investment. A great team, very professional and high quality service - I definitely recommend ClearChoice.

Review from Google

My experience with ClearChoice and the their team has been outstanding. They have changed my life in many positive ways. Self confidence, weight loss, more socially active,increased business.
As with most people in need of their services, I had bad experiences with previous dentists that were judgemental about my lack of proper dental care. Dr Perkins and Dr Sharafi were professional and never judgemental. As soon as you walk in the front door, you feel welcome and appreciated. Holli, my education consultant, is the best. She understood my situation and helped me make change my life. I will always appreciate her.
I would most definitely recommend Clear Choice for anyone that is thinking about dental implants. I thought about it for 6 months to a year before I got the courage to make that call. Don't wait any longer. You will be amazed when your friends, family and associates ask why you are so happy. You won't stop smiling.

Review from Yelp

Deborah B.

I first heard of Clear Choice in Arizona from my sister. I needed something done with my upper teeth. I have always had a fear of the dentist plus a dry mouth condition which added to my dental problems. Once I made the decision to go to Clear Choice in San Diego and heard how easy it is to have a whole new smile, I never have looked back. The staff is wonderful and caring and from the first appointment to the actual procedure I was never nervous.

After the procedure I was in minimal pain for a few days but not even enough to take the pain medication. From that first procedure till I received my permanent teeth I never had a problem. I would recommend looking into this implant center if you are missing just one tooth or need both upper and lower teeth done.

They will take you step by step explaining the process and give you several ways of financing your new mouth. Don't sit back and think that you can not do this. You deserve to have a mouth that can chew, talk, and most of all SMILE for all the world to see......

Review from Google

My mom is 69 and unfortunately has neglected her teeth for most of her life. As a young girl she had a horrible experience at a dentist office and developed a fear of dentists. The combination of this fear and of course putting her children's care over her own lead to the deterioration of her teeth. I knew her teeth were bad but it wasn't until she lost one of her front teeth and we made a trip to the dentist that I really understood the severity of her situation. We went to a "traditional" dentist and walked away with close to a years worth of appointments. I knew right then that this process would never work. I could possibly get my mom to the first and maybe even the second appointment but after that it would be a struggle. That is when my family found Clear Choice. My brother and I went to a seminar to learn more about this company, the procedure and if in fact it was true that someone could walk away with a new set of teeth . Well, it was TRUE. I cannot express in this review what Clear Choice has done for my mom. When she first visited Clear Choice she weighed all of 95lbs, if that. We realized that without most of her teeth and the poor condition her remaining teeth were in she was not able to eat solid foods and was not getting proper nutrition. To imagine my mom not being able to bite into a apple or eat a steak or even something as easy as bite into a sandwich was heartbreaking. Clear Choice was not just a clear choice for my mom, it was the ONLY choice!The entire staff at Clear Choice, San Diego is amazing! From the greeters at the front desk, Ryan Peterson who has been with us from day one and goes out of his way to check on my moms progress each visit to the outstanding doctors who performed my moms miracle. Scott Perkins, DDS and Arshiya Sharafi, DDS, PC we so caring and gentle with my mom. We would not be where we are today without the care of this team!My mom is now complaining that her clothes do not fit, we have gone up a few sizes and can't seem to fill her appetite. Dream Come True! Clear Choice gave my mom her smile back but more importantly gave my mom her life back and you cannot put a price tag on that! Thank you Clear Choice!

Review from Yelp

The idea of implants scared me at first. Now that I have done it I know it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It has been about a year since I have had them done and there has been absolutely no problems. My overall health has improved . I can eat whatever I want, and my smile is perfect! Dr. Perkins is like no other person I have met. He is professional beyond words and at the same time the most kind. Never once was I made to feel embarrassed, or judged by how bad my teeth looked. The whole staff is fabulous! I took a leap of faith and trusted clearchoice and Dr. Perkins to create a life changing experience for me. I am so pleased with the results and I am blown away by the fact that it was absolutely painless! I definitely recommend clearchoice and Dr. Perkins to anyone who needs this kind of work done.

Review from Yelp

Went in for consultation for a single implant, very honest, upfront and thorough with what I should do. I totally appreciated the advice and the sincerety of the consultant I met with as well as the Dentist who was in for part of the consult. I would recommend to someone needing a lot of work at once as I felt they had a nice business that kept it real.

Review from Yelp

Took a family member...what a facility, what a service..I almost wish I needed dental implants...do yourself a favor and go here for implants...

Review from Yelp

Ok, I rarely write reviews unless I am super, surprisingly satisfied with a business or super bored. Needless to say, I am not super bored today so it must be the other reason! Seriously, the reason I am writing this review is because when I first decided I wanted implants I, like anyone with a computer, did the Sherlock Holmes thing and searched the net for days looking for proof that spending so much money (at least it was to me!) on my fu!*#*ed up smile was worth it! Like all baby boomers in their 50's, my teeth were crooked, missing, yellow and basically, f*#*!ed up. I really didn't find anything online that made me 100% sure, but all I knew was that I didn't really smile or laugh anymore. It's funny how that happens? We age and our teeth age too. As a result, we become embarrassed of our screwed up grills! I decided that I needed to invest in me. Really, I realized if what these implant centers said was true, this would be an investment. Like a remodeling on a house, I was looking to remodel my smile. Sounds weird, but honestly, that's exactly what it is. I have to say, and I honestly can't believe I am saying this, but this is the best thing I have ever done, really. I smile all the time. I laugh without hesitation. I love taking pictures again. The staff at the San Diego Clear Choice Center are excellent. I know, you are probably thinking, well of course they're nice, you're paying them a sh*t load of money! But really, they are excellent. Of course, they're working, like all of us do, but they are all very nice & professional & good at what they do. One of the most things I was concerned about was pain. I was scared to death to not be completely out during the procedure. I was remembering all of the time spent in a dentist chair suffering for hours. Now, having ALL my teeth, crowns, bridges and whatever else I had left at 50, pulled? ARE YOU KIDDING??? I would NEVER survive that! Much less, only sedated??? No way! I remember Dr. Perkins telling me, " I know you won't believe me, but I am telling you, you will not feel any pain.", yeah, right. I had my procedure done last November. Believe it or not, but I swear to God, I felt NO PAIN, none. Sure, after I went home and probably for 4-5 days, I was only "sore", but NOTHING like I thought. The staff and doctors at the SD Clear Choice are excellent. I honestly cannot believe my smile, and I haven't even gotten the permanent arch placed! I had found a picture online & sent it to Dr. Perkins and said, "this is how I want my smile to look!", when I looked in the mirror, it was exactly what I wanted! If you can swing it, DO IT, it's so worth it. Bottom line, costs a lot (worth it & can be financed), takes about 1week to completely recover (back to work recover), honestly, VERY LITTLE PAIN (only sore) and you will like looking at yourself again. Thank you SD Clear Choice....
