Ian, San Marcos

Always great, Dr. Pulido is the best and his Hygienist is very careful and does an awesome job!!!


We were recommended to Dr. Pulido by some really good friends of ours. Our daughter is special needs. Dr. Pulido was great and very gentle and made my daughter feel very comfortable. Debbie was so nice and welcoming. Barbara the hygienist was so good with my daughter talking to her and letting her know what she was doing before she started, and my daughter did so good with her. The entire staff was beyond great. This is a small practice where you feel like they really care and that your important, nothing like these dental groups where every time you go in, you don't know who the dentist or the staff will be. Excellent experience and excellent care thank you all for making this a positive experience for us. I highly recommend Dr. Pulido.

Broke off a crown 20 minutes before Dr. Pulido's office closed for the weekend. Called & explained problem, they said "come right in". He fixed my tooth quickly & painlessly. Even though I only go in when I have an urgent need, Dr. Pulido has taken care of my dental "needs" for 20 years, and I won't go to any other dentist.

I don't leave issues until the last minute, but in this case it couldn't be avoided. I called early in the am and Debbie was able to fit me in for evaluation within hours. They took x-rays and Dr. Pulido's evaluation revealed the need for a specialist. Debbie called the specialist and worked with them to set up an appointment that afternoon. Issue resolved. Great staff, support, and service. I highly recommend this dental office and Dr. Pulido.

Tarry, Escondido

I have been going to JRPulido DDS Dentistry for many years. I have recommended many family members and friends to Dr Pulido and his office and everyone is equally happy.

christa, Carlsbad

Felt safe. The staff took extra precautions to prevent spread of any disease and germs.

Steve, Escondido

Great service. Tooth feels a little sharp, but most likely will feel better later on.

Anna, San Marcos

Very professional, friendly and accommodating office that made for a smooth and easy procedure and appointment.

Barbara, San Diego

The staff is always so helpful, the hygeniests excellent, and Dr Pulido is great. I'm so happy I found this office where recommendations are made for my benefit and not because someone wants a commission or perks for "selling the product of the month". I also love it that crowns are made on site, eliminating a couple of weeks with a temporary that can come off. Dr Pulido is a terrific patient oriented dentist.

Ken, Carlsbad

Have been coming here for many years and hope to for many more. Dr. Joe and his team are true professionals.

Laura, Hemet

Love Dr. Pulido and his team. Always courteous. I have never had any pain whatsoever when having my teeth done. Thanks Dr. Pulido! ??

Pamela, Hemet

Awesome cleaning today!!! My teeth love it! Thank you Barbara! And thank you Dr. Pulido, and Dibbie office mngr!

This is by far the best dentist office I have ever used.

Estela, Menifee

Me and my family have been Dr Pulido's patients for 15 years. Even though we no longer live in Escondido, we continue having Dr Pulido as our dentist. Dr Pulido and friendly, knowledgable staff always welcome us with a cheerful smile, making us feel like part of the family. I would highly recommend Dr Pulido to anybody who is afraid of dentists or who is looking for a new dentist. Thank you Dr Pulido, Debbie, Collette and Barbara.

Carlos Ronquillo , Menifee

Excellent and professional treatment. Friendly and courteous. My wife and I live in Menifee but will travel to Escondido for their service.

Kathy and Dave, Escondido,CA

Caring and professional staff from arrival at the desk, to Hygienist to Dentist. Welcoming attractive office

Gloria, Valley Center

Dr. Pulido has been my dentist for about 7 years. It’s always a pleasure to see Debbie at the desk. She is so sweet and knowledgeable if I have any questions. Colette has been my dental hygienist most of the time. She is so thorough, yet gentle. She has such a great personality, I am sure she would get along with anyone. And Dr. Pulido is always positive and uplifting, I feel like I can trust him. He doesn’t tell me I need work done that isn’t necessary, which is why I had to leave my previous dentist. Their prices are reasonable and it’s a very comfortable office as well. Oh, if I have to wait, (which is rare), they have a beautiful aquarium in the waiting room! It has sea anemones, clown fish, shrimp and a lot of other colorful creatures. It is delightful to see! Thank you for making my dental experience so good!

Philip, Escondido

Dr. Pulido's staff is always friendly and helpful. Barbara is outstanding at promoting oral hygiene and keeping my teeth in their best condition and appearance.

Ian Galbraith, San Marcos

Always quick and painless, and the girl taught me how to floss right which I never did until this past year!

Vicki R., San Diego

No other dentist is as understanding of my trouble with their request to "open wide." He showed me how to communicate my needs without words, and is amazingly patient. The front desk is competent and helpful - no, even more, my friend and advocate.

Dora Maher, San Diego

Dentist was all business and yet kind and provided excellent service.

Julius Hitchens, San Diego

Excellent as always.

Laura E, Hemet

Omg Dr. Pulido and his staff are amazing. Dr. Pulido put crowns on 6 of my top teeth and they are perfect! I can now smile without being self conscious of my ugly teeth! Thank you to Dr, Pulido and his awesome Team!!!

Aida Shelton, Escondido

Dr Pulido along with his staff and Debbie the office manager are friendly and informative and will address any concerns/questions you may have.
