Best Dental Office in North County
I have been a patient of Dr. Lawson's for nearly 20 years (and I'm not the only long term patient!). The office and staff are amazing. All have been with him for at least as long as I have - which tells you a lot. My children grew up at this dental office, and even now, although they are out of state at school, they STILL come home for all their dental work. It's hard to find an office anywhere with such personal, professional, and caring patient relationships or a team so dedicated to patient care. Dr. Lawson came in one weekend to fix a filling for my husband who would be traveling on business the next week. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lawson or his team.

Best thing for me is I feel comfortable going to Dr. Lawson
When you walk in you're greeted "by name" that's the start of feeling comfortable, waiting room is pleasant and well laid out, the whole facility is well planned out and pleasing to the eye. It only gets better when you go in for what ever dental work that needs to be done, the dental hygienist is pleasant, knows me by name, tells me what's in store for my visit, then we lay back watch travel guides on t.v. And before you know it you're done. To bad there are only five stars on this servey, because they deserve at least ten.

We travel an hour each way to see Dr. Lawson and his hygienist Jackie. We have been going to them for 14 years... love the friendly atmosphere and their thorough care!

Dr Lawson and his staff are incredibly professional , dedicated, knowledgeable, and hands down the absolute best in the dental world. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for dental care.

Great clinician (thorough & highly skilled) with an amazing staff | 5+ stars
I've learned about Dr. Lawson's office through the word of mouth from co-workers who have been his patients for several years. Having had quite sad encounters with various practitioners in New York and California, I was a bit sceptical to try another dentist. However, after experiencing Dr. Lawson's initial visit I was very pleased with his service and willing to continue the treatment. Dr. Lawson is very thorough, meticulous, and extremely good at his work. His first exam is comprehensive and it includes cancer screening which is not a common practice among dentists, in general. He also uses loupes (not common) and an intraoral camera (not common) to diagnose patients. Dr. Lawson appears as an honest man with a patient's best interest in mind. He presented a treatment plan with options to help me set the priorities and prepare financially for future modalities. Some may say that his prices might seem a bit elevated. But I say, after doing the math - it's a win-win situation. I have spent several thousand dollars on dentists whose work Dr. Lawson had to fix or remove. I chose the other dentists based on a price tag - not their skills, knowledge, and office technology - a not-a-good idea after all. I am also pleased with Dr. Lawson's office staff, especially his assistant, dental hygienist, and office manager. These ladies are efficient and great at their work. All in all, I highly recommend Dr. Lawson's dental services. In my opinion, based on 15 years of experience with dentists on the East and West Coasts, Dr. Lawson is one of the best clinicians in the field of general and cosmetic dentistry.

Dr Lawson was recommended by my neighbor who had implants done by him. I have been seeing Dr.Lawson for about 6 years and he and his staff have done extensive work for me. I am very pleased and have recommended him whenever I am asked about dentists. On my first visit I had not been to a dentist in 15 years and needed a filling, two crowns and some peridontal work plus cleaning. It took several visits but was done with as little pain as possible and the results are great. The last four years I have just been going for regular cleanings and I recommend his hygenist highly. He takes great care in adjusting your bite after doing work on a tooth and what a difference that makes! I am very happy with the results of my treatment and give him and his practice five stars.
