    It's been a while since I posted a review of Dr McElroy and the exceptional staff at Smiles By Design in Encinitas, CA. Before I found this office, I was a victim of "piecemeal dentistry" as one called it. All manner of dental students, factory dentists, and others had a hand in my mouth. I never had a comprehensive treatment plan, only cleaning/fillings/crowns/root canals as necessary. When I got there my mouth was a mess. Dr Mac gave me my smile back. It's been about 6-7 years now and he is still taking excellent care of me and my mouth. Unlike the factory dentists, when you come to the office, you see the owner. When you read the credentials, they are Dr Mac's credentials. It's a small office, only one doctor, personal attention. I like that.

    Dr. McElroy and his staff were very accommodating, personable and professional during my visit this week. I was especially happy to know that Dr. McElroy has the expertise in making crowns right there in his office. Thank you Brooke for a great experience with my cleaning, and for Susan for her professionalism in explaining my treatment plan. I would highly recommend Smiles By Design. Thank you! Angie Estrella

    It has been over 5 yrs since I've been to the dentist, not because I have had much dental work done other than cleanings and wisdom teeth pulled, just a lot of anxiety. They made the experience very comfortable and relaxing.

    Dr McElroy is very unique in the dental world, he actually Loves being a dentist. He is caring, honorable, fair, and stands behind his work.. After years of smiling with my mouth closed, covering my mouth, or putting my tongue over my teeth, he gave me a new smile. The support staff is also top notch. Both in the office and in the chair, they are very accomodating and will help you in any way they can.
