★★★★★ I have been going to Bird Rock Dental ever since moving to San Diego in 1976, first seeing Dr. Kent and now, after his retirement, Dr. Murray. Cathy has cleaned my teeth for years and she's great! In fact, everyone at Bird Rock Dental is welcoming, warm, and helpful. I can't say enough good things about them. They all are excellent and I highly recommend !!!!
