Patient Review By Ashley V

I was referred by my dentist for a wisdom teeth removal. My consultation meeting went super well! Everybody was very friendly. Information and questions were all provided and answered during that time. Booking The surgery was easy as well. Dr Hummeldorf made everything clear and comfortable as for me as I was very nervous to be under anesthesia for the first time. My actual Surgery went well and again the staff as well as the doctor made me feel at ease. I had minimal pain during recovery and it It was nice to know that the doctor was available at any time if needed. Overall my experience was better than I could’ve ever imagined and hoped for! I would highly recommend anybody to be seen by them!

Patient Review By Angelo C

Wow! What an awesome experience. I was very concerned about the procedure. When I met Dr. Hummeldorf, he immediately put me at ease. He explained each and every step in great detail. All of my follow up appointments were on time and handled in a very professional manner. Not only was Dr. Hummeldorf awesome, but the entire staff from the front desk to the exam room did a fantastic job. I feel lucky and grateful that Dr. Hummeldorf was my oral surgeon.

This was my first tooth pull and implant so rather nervous. My experience throughout the whole experience was very positive. The staff are super friendly and everyone is very knowledgeable and tentative. Strongly recommend and would definitely come back if needed.

Patient Review By George B

Dr. Hummeldorf and staff were incredibly professional. They were all very pleasant and made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend. I also received a call the night of my procedure from the Dr asking how I was doing. This was very comforting to me. I know I made the right choice,

Patient Review By Michael C

I don’t really know where to start. The ENTIRE staff, from the administrative staff welcoming you into the office to the support staff assisting Dr. Hummeldorf in my dental implant procedure to Dr. Hummeldorf himself, is AMAZING! Dr. Hummeldorf’s office is truly the GOLD standard when it comes to oral surgery. Many thanks for taking such very good care of my teeth.

Patient Review By Krista P

I’m very dental-procedure anxious. I needed 4 extractions and 2 bone grafts. I was super nervous about my appointment… but the staff and Dr Hummeldorf quickly got to work. I woke up about an hour later and was all done. I expected pain and was prepared to take the pain medicine. However i experienced no pain, no swelling, no bruising, just a little bleeding. The days after were completely pain free too. (I know, i was surprised too!) I would give that experience a 10/10. (The suture removal, 3 weeks later) was very fast and hurt a tiny bit for a few mins). Overall this was my best dental experience I’ve had. I’m so thankful for Dr. H and his team for helping me through it all.

Patient Review By Carolyn L

While I was excited to finally have my tori removed, I was a little nervous about the procedure. Dr. Hummeldorf and his staff were wonderful. The doctor was very thorough in explaining everything and addressing my questions. Although a difficult removal, all went well. I really appreciate Dr. Hummeldorf calling to check on me. Everyone was very supportive and kind. Thank you so much!

Patient Review By Irina Dorfman

Dr. Kurt Hummeldorf is a gem! In today's world of commercialized medicine, true personal attention and genuine care for a patient's well-being are becoming a rarity. But Doctor is a fortunate exception. He is a talented and experienced doctor and a true specialist in his field! No less importantly, he truly does all in his power to help his patients. He is superbly attentive and caring. I am profoundly grateful for his care and for figuring out a course of treatment that made sense in light of my medical condition and personal circumstances. Thank you! Irina Dorfman

Patient Review By Sil S

I was referred to Dr. K Hummeldorf by my primary dentist for 4 wisdom teeth extractions. I was extremely nervous, hence the YouTube videos I’ve watched prior to my surgery. I anticipated a lot of pain and discomfort but to my surprise, the actual procedure was not even a fraction what I expected, no lingering discomfort nor pain. The staff is highly profesional and friendly and it reflects on the doctor. I am very pleased with my experience 🙂

Patient Review By Jesus E

Was first professional oral procedure and it could have not gone any better. Dr. Hummeldorf and his staff makes the process very easy and calming with their welcoming and playful attitude from the scheduling, to the waiting, and surgical procedure. Overall, my experience was super positive and would definitely recommend to anybody who needs a procedure done! And I think the marketing of Dr. Hummeldorf overall brand is the best I’ve seen in any oral surgeon, I know.

Patient Review By Angella H

Best Dental visit ever even though I was in pain everyone was courteous and provided excellent customer service. Dr. Hummeldorf said he would call me that night to check on me and he totally did so. I was very surprised. I even received a get well card in the mail from him. Super awesome!

Patient Review By Fredrick Y

Dr. Hummeldorf literally saved my 16-year-old daughter Ashley’s life! When Ashley went in to get her wisdom teeth removed in Feb 2021, Dr. Hummeldorf spotted a small bump on her upper right back palate that was not there during the initial consult 3 weeks earlier. Dr. Hummeldorf performed a biopsy and also did a CT scan on his own and discovered an abnormal area between Ashley’s palate and sinus area. Unfortunately, it turned out to be salivary gland cancer, and we got Ashley in for surgery ASAP at UCSD to remove the affected area. Ashley is recovering ok now and her prognosis is good. If Dr. Hummeldorf had not spotted and acted on Ashley’s abnormality, she would still have a cancerous oral tumor continuing to grow. Thank you Dr. Hummeldorf!

Patient Review By Winnie B

Dr. Hummeldorf and his staff were very helpful and eased my nerves prior to the procedure. The office staff made it very easy to schedule appointments/follow ups and were upfront about the total cost of the surgery. They also worked with my insurance to make sure everything was covered beforehand. The surgery itself was very quick and went well (I had all four wisdom teeth removed). I had no problems during recovery. Would definitely recommend.

Patient Review By Dan G

I was referred by a friend who, over the years, has had 2 very successful implants done by Dr Hummeldorf. I just had an EXCELLENT 2nd opinion- where Dr H took great care and ample time to Explain why I should NOT have an implant done! Thank goodness I cancelled my previous appt with the Dr my dentist wanted me to see— already scheduling me to have my tooth extracted!!! (And my dentist would make the revenue from the Unnecessary implant!) There is a reason that many dentists list NOTHING about their education, training and experience in their websites.. beware. Look into qualifications— as you would any physician. Dr. H has a long list of education, certifications, accomplishments, AND recognized expertise— as a Instructor of Dentistry. He’s honest, and highly skilled— and PUTS HIS PATIENTS FIRST! Thank you Dr. Hummeldorf!

Patient Review By Kimberly P

The amount of nerves I had going into such a lengthy and involved process, was immense. I cannot thank Dr. Hummeldorf enough for being patient, understanding, and easy to get ahold of if I had any questions during this two-year journey. The staff are overly welcoming and very accomodating with my schedule while I'm still in school. Overall, I'm overjoyed with the end result!

I want to thank you and your great staff for the care you provided for me on May 23, 2014. I admit to being nervous and apprehensive, but soon realized I was in great hands.

As you well know, I was definitely NOT looking forward to getting all four wisdom teeth extracted, but my experience with Dr. Hummeldorf & his staff was so great that I can actually say the whole process and recovery was SO smooth, I was comfortable the entire time! Dr. Hummeldorf is great at what he does — I had minimal (if any) swelling after the procedure, he is on call 24/7 for any questions or concerns, and I was in no pain at all thanks to him. He and his staff went out of their way to make sure I felt relaxed and comfortable. I really appreciated him calling me the day of my surgery to see how I was doing & the get well card he mailed as well. I will DEFINITELY recommend Dr. Hummeldorf & his staff to anyone I know who needs their wisdom teeth extracted. Thank you so much for your professional and kind service, Dr. Hummeldorf! you’re only successful in business when you surround yourself with good people. Your staff, and especially Susan (I hope I remember correctly), were not only professional, but genuinely showed they cared. That is the best marketing calling card your business could have. It builds loyalty and certainly brings referrals.

It also takes great leadership to build such a team. Your team speaks volumes of your gifted leadership. I can attest to your oral skills in more ways than one. It took skilled tenacity to deal with the red tape that can be the Veterans Administration, and to do so on my behalf with the desired result, showed a great commitment to your patient.

Your business is customer centric and that will pay off in the long run. Much appreciation and many thanks to you and your staff. Oh … and thanks for the evening phone call to check on how I was doing! I’m doing fine … thanks.

I have never written a letter of this nature before to a medical provider but felt compelled to write you and thank you so very much for not only your professionalism but your thoughtfulness and caring attitude for a patient. I also appreciate very much your explaining to me in detail the procedure and the future options that I have available to me. Thank you Dr. Daly again for your kindness and professional care. — J. Paul Esq. President (May 2012)


We wanted to take the time to thank you for being such a good dentist. You do great work and are very dedicated to your patients. Thank you Dr. Daly for the follow-up call at home and the get well card! — LK and RR (July 2012)


Everything was so professional and clean. Lovely nurses and the Doctor Kurt Hummeldorf, DMD who performed my surgery was so attentive, explained everything and made my visit so pleasant! Everyone worked as a team and were so understanding! Nurse April held my hand and Dr. Hummeldorf was so careful yet so fast in his hands to get both my teeth out asap.

Believe it or not, I LOVED getting oral surgery!! In the evening Dr Hummeldorf called me himself to check on me!!! Who does that anymore?

I have nothing but good things to say about this place and Dr Hummeldorf! I highly recommend it to everyone needing oral surgery and having a bit of a scare of this kind of procedure. — Esra A (Nov 2013)


We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the very professional service that Dr. Daly provided for our granddaughter. She was very happy later in the day that her face was not swollen and she had experienced little pain. Her friends could not believe how good she looked and felt. We were very impressed with your entire office. — S and LS
