If so, we are happy to provide our patient reviews right here on this page. If you have any questions or you would like to leave your own review, please give us a call! We look forward to speaking with you.

I have to say, I am pleased with my new dental crown. Color match, in relation to my other teeth is not 100% but it sure is close (maybe I’m just being picky). Dr. Lichter is awesome and Ms. Robyn is the most gracious woman I have ever met. I am glad I became a patient here and look forward to future check ups that hopefully won’t cost a small fortune. Their payment plan to afford such superb work is definitely a plus! I’m happy with everyone at this practice especially Claudia for being a great listener.

They are always so helpful and nice as well as knowledgeable. I called with pain after a procedure and was told to come in after hours so Dr. Lichter could help me. Would definitely recommend!!

Doc Lichtenstein and his crew are consummate professionals. No matter who you talk with you never leave feeling you lack any answers or plans for your dental health. I’m cared for and my opinions on the direction and timeframe of my care matters to them. Smiles all around! Thank you. It took a lifetime to find a dentist I actually enjoy visiting!

In addition, a wonderful staff, always a pleasure when we go to our appointments.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Lichter for about 10 years. He is a perfectionist and is not satisfied until it’s perfect. I’m always pleased with his work and work ethic. I have referred several of my friends to Dr. Lichter and they continue to rave about his work. Customer service is excellent and you never wait more than 5 minutes. It’s hard to find a good dentist who really enjoys his work and helping his patients.

He will advise you so you CAN have your teeth for your lifetime… his goal is YOUR HEALTH & WELLBEING….. NOT his wallet..

Is the most articulate and careful dentist I’ve ever been to and we’ve been going (3 generations) for treatment. Now in our 70’s the level of care is why we can still go to a dentist. a dentist can also be an artist.

My entire family sees Dr. Lichter. We’re all highly satisfied with his services and his staff — THEY’RE AMAZING!. If he doesn’t think the work should be done, he won’t do it. About 6 years ago, I informed him that I wanted veneers on my 4 front upper teeth because they were chipped and looked awful. He suggested that I get my bite checked out first because he’d rather get the teeth right instead of do the veneers first because if the bite is off, it’s an expensive proposition — possibly cracked veneers. Well… I needed braces and had them on for about 4 years. Finally, got my veneers and I look like a different person. I LOVE MY FRONT TEETH. Doctor is precise on what he delivers to his patients. I had the opportunity of deciding on the shape of teeth I wanted. He gave me his honest input (what I really wanted was to look like Halle Berry and Catherine Zeta — NOT A CHANCE!). I just love Dr. Lichter. I love seeing him because he’s happy to see me. He makes me laugh too. I feel like I matter and that’s important to me. I’ll never leave him as long as he’s around.

Dr. Derek Lichter has been our family dentist since 2000. He is a perfectionist and only works with the very best specialists in the region. His team is always efficient, welcoming and professional. He has managed to correct my many dental issues and has helped me attain the smile I always wanted. My children have seen Dr. Lichter since they were babies, as I knew they would receive the best care possible. I highly recommend this dental practice!

MARIO J
I was seeking a new dentist in the Chula Vista area after losing my dentist of twenty years in the Rancho San Diego area and I am glad that I found Dr Lichter. After reading testimonials online I discovered what they said were all true. The staff is friendly and ready to answer any questions. Dr Lichter is professional and yet humble. Someone you feel comfortable talking with and asking questions about any procedures. He is also gentle. The dental hygienist is wonderful as well.

Everytime I step foot into Dr Lichter’s office I am reminded of the two factors that appease my hesitance of attending the dentist; both the caring staff and their expertise that has never made me feel discomfort
RORY T
Dr Lichter and all of his staff are the best!! Dr Lichter is so professional and fun! He has a great sense of humor, but is always on top of what needs to be done, and doesn’t hesitate to say, “Let’s watch this…” meaning, he’s not overly aggressive in his approach. The staff is warm and so friendly…in fact, I call them my friends. I can’t say enough good, positive remarks about all of them
