People don’t believe me that I would rather go to my dentist than get my hair cut! Irene is the best, most knowledgeable hygienist I have ever had. Dr. Bancroft is great as well. Their WHOLE STAFF is! I moved away from the area but still remain a client! Can’t recommend them highly enough.


Wow! These guys are quick, efficient, and extremely nice. This was my first visit to this office. I arrived a little before my 8 am appointment and was quickly seated in the examination chair. I quickly had my x-rays completed (they use a digital x-ray for lower radiation and immediate results on the computer) and the dentist greeted me moments later for the initial exam. Dr. Bancroft is extremely pleasant, courteous, and easy to talk to. Next, I went for the regular cleaning which was a breeze. I couldn’t be more pleased with the entire experience.


I had an awesome first visit at my new dental office yesterday….Carmel Valley Dental (https://www.facebook.com/carmelvalleydental/) . The team there is remarkably kind and efficient. Dr. B. and her team made coming back to the dentist easy, with compassionate treatment at every turn. Her assistant Catherine made X-rays a breeze (and that is my LEAST favorite procedure in the world), and I look forward to my future visits with the awesome dental hygienist Irene. Seriously…if you are looking for a new dentist in the North County, Carmel Valley Dental is the place for you!!


Dr. Bancroft is EXCELLENT! She is skilled, gentle, and personable too! The entire staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. Karen’s smiling face greets you as you walk in. Catherine sets you up and gets you comfortable for the visit & then skillfully works side by side with Dr. Bancroft. They have headphones and a tv on the ceiling, which is great to not have to hear the sounds of the dental instruments. Best dental experience I’ve ever had.


Irene is always encouraging and has become very dear to me as my hygienist.
