Mario Godinez DDS Reviews
  • “I haven't been to the dentist in years and was very excited to find Dr. Godinez so close to my home. Little did I know I would enjoy the visit so much. His team is professional and personable! He explained everything very well and I am actually looking forward to going back for my cleaning. Thank you Dr. Godinez and office staff!”

    Rebecca W.

  • "I've known Dr. Mario and his wife Alex for years. My children ages 6 & 7 years now go to 'Dr. G' and they do great there. The office is calm, clean, professional and nice. I think of it as "old school" in that way, in the best way. There is nothing better than a family owned business that cares so much about its patients."

    Nick B.

  • "I have been going to Dr. Godinez for 15+ years. The staff is friendly and always takes care to remind me of appointments, any medications I need to take before visits, and to provide annual summaries for tax purposes. Of all the dentists I have had throughout my life, Mario Godinez is the most remarkable in that I have never had any kind of discomfort through all the procedures, routine and more complicated like crowns and root canals. He is the best! He also is a serious mountain biker, another plus for me."

Your Comfort Is Our Top Priority

Your Encinitas dentist is committed to providing the best experience possible for our patients. Dr. Godinez has invested in leading-edge technology that helps to streamline many dental procedures and makes your experience more comfortable and even more efficient.

If you are feeling anxious or fearful about your visit to the dentist, we offer nitrous oxide to help “take the edge off” and assist you in feeling at ease during dental procedures.

Nitrous is a breathable gas that we can administer through an inhalation mask that you wear during your treatment. It is safe for both adults and children, and it leaves your body quickly after we remove the mask. With nitrous, you can feel at ease while getting the dental treatment you need.
