My experience with everyone at Pearls of Dentistry was superb!! I moved to Poway, CA, in November 2017 and had to have a crown replaced and a root canal. Dr. Langenbach was so thorough in his exam and left no stone unturned. My tooth was in a lot of pain prior to these procedures and afterward it was like I had a new tooth! He has a great sense of humor as well and kept me entertained while doing the procedure! All the hygienists are top notch and the people at the front desk and in billing! I highly recommend them!!

My wife and I have been going to this dental team for 19 years. Back then, new to the area, a coworker had suggested Dr. Langenbach to us. Quality and precision has been our experience -- going the extra mile, and taking the time to provide insightful depth for their care. We find Washma, Patty, and the staff take pride in being courteous and polite, with a warm and friendly approach to discussing sometimes difficult concerns. We also look forward to our conversations with Patty and the staff in our regular check-ups and cleanings. Last year, my wife had an unbearably swollen gum. Recognizing the immediacy, Washma made time for her that same day, and a popcorn shell stuck way down in the molar gum was removed. The relief was immediate. We drive nearly an hour from the coast for our visits, because of their care.

Been visiting Dr Langenbach since over 10+ years. Professional, competent, patient first. Great and innovative treatments, always on top of the latest. It was super cool to watch my crown being molded on site. Want to get to know him? Ask him about his soccer team. Also, I been there since 10+ years ans Washma does a superb job cleaning my teeth and keeping my gums health. Courteous, sympathetic and competent. Almost too nice for having your teeth cleaned. Want to get to know here? Ask her abiut her kids.

I have had a number of dentists through the past 63 years and Dr. Thomas and Dr. Langenbach are hands-down the best in every aspect of their practice. My last dentist gave up on my teeth and recommended dentures and that was over 20 years ago. Dr. Thomas recommended 2 implants which solved the big problem and she proactively saved the rest of my teeth over the years. Everyone in the office is so friendly and I consider all of them part of my extended family. I highly recommend

I've been a patient for over 10 years. I have always had a great experience whether getting my teeth cleaned or being seen for an emergency. I got my teeth cleaned today by Washma. She is fantastic, thorough, and very gentle. She also remembers me from visit to visit, knows my quirks, and takes great care of me and my teeth. On Labor Day this past August, I broke a molar. I called their emergency number and Dr. Thomas met me at the dental office. She didn't hesitate to meet with me even though it was a holiday, and she had out of town guests in her home. The entire office staff are friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend them.

Pearls of Dentistry is definitely the best dentist group that I've ever had. My dentist, Dr. Juergen Langenbach, has taken great care of my family for many years. He personable, has all the latest technology, and is very skilled at making in-house perfect crowns, fillings, etc. Additionally, he provides me complete health dentistry, with a sleep apnea device, perio protect, and other hygiene services. Washma, who does my quarterly cleanings, is great; she's very knowledgeable and thorough and makes sure to have the dentist check any suspect areas that she may find. I highly recommend Pearls of Dentistry and have referred friends to them.

I have been receiving dental care from Dr. Langenbach and Dr. Thomas for close to 10 years now. It has been a pleasant experience each and every time I have stepped into their office to receive dental work. They take great care in ensuring their patients are comfortable and well informed of all procedures that are taking place. Additionally, my hygienist Washma, whom I see for my regular cleanings, always makes sure that I leave with the healthiest teeth and provides me with any improvements I can make to my daily routine to keep them that way. The entire office staff are always friendly and add to the overwhelmingly positive experience that I have each time I visit.

A great experience at Pearls of Denistry in Poway today. I had an old metal crown that needed replacing. Could not be happier with my new crown. Dr. Thomas is a dedicated dentist and also a perfectionist not just with functionality but also the aesthetics. I trust her to always do a first class job. Dental Assistant Jessica was also excellent seeming to read the doctor's mind on what she needed to do and when. Jackie and Lylia were part of the crown team as well. Excellent! One of the best reason to go to Pearls of Denistry is that you can get a permanent crown the same day! No temporary crown. Dr. Lagenbach does implants. He did mine a few years ago. Great to have the next best thing to a natural tooth. Jackie is his surgery assistant, too. I must say how much I love Washma the Hygenist. I've been going to her for many years and would never go to any other. The entire office staff is an incredible team. They are caring and very attentive to your needs.
