What Our Patients Say?

I had an amazing experience with doctor Gaball. I have a tooth pain for six months.I went to several dentists, specialists and even a hospital, but no one could figure out exactly what I had. Then I found dentist Elona Gaball and in one visit she could figure out and solve my problem. She was very dedicated to help me. I recommend her for everyone. She’s awesome 🙂 By Beatriz

Dr. Gaball is not only an exceptional Dentist, but she is also an exceptional human being! She is 100% professional in appearance and presentation, while also having such a warm and genuine personality that shines through and puts you at ease. She has a great way of explaining things clearly and confidently, which put me at ease with having various procedures done. Her office is like one big family and it is evident that everyone gets along and thinks very highly of Dr. Gaball. I recently had a procedure done that took a couple hours and the dental assistant and hygienist there were so kind and calming towards me when I got nervous about getting the numbing shots in my mouth. They set such a relaxing tone prior to my procedure that carried on into the actual procedure itself. Never in my life have I looked forward to going to the dentist, but after my past experiences at Dr. Gaball’s office, I will never be nervous about going to the dentist again. Dr. Gaball is a hidden gem in the world of dentistry, and the world itself!!!

Dr. Gaball is an excellent dentist. She has the latest and greatest technology to make sure she is examining you for mouth cancer which I think is great. Everybody should be so proactive. She explains any procedure she is going to do with great detail so you know what to expect. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a smart, good beside manner dentist. Which the latest technology for taking care of your teeth.

I've been a patient for years, recently moved a half hour away and I still wouldn't consider seeking a new dentist. Dr. Gaball is honest, very welcoming and professional. The quality of service is exceptional.

I had my first exam with Elona Gaball today. Great service and very thorough. I highly recommend her. UPDATE AFTER A YEAR: Dr. Gaball is amazing. She takes the extra time to make sure you understand about the health of your teeth & gums, where the trouble spots are, and how to better take care of the trouble areas. I managed to get an appointment for the next day for a routine cleaning which with my past dentists could never do. They also have state of the art equipment. I highly recommend her.
Andrea Z.
I want to say Dr. Gaball is a life saver. Over the weekend I cracked a tooth and Dr. Gaball was able to squeeze me in on Monday. Dr. Gaball was very professional, efficient, and experienced. I felt no discomfort during the procedure and was thankful for Dr. Gaball’s expertise. The little touches like the tooth pillow made a difference. Dr. Gaball uses state of the are equipment and her stations and office is immaculate. I even enjoyed the music. I could not be happier, and having gone to 5 Dentists over the years, Dr. Gaball is hands down the best by a long shot. It is so nice to see such a compassionate, thoughtful, experienced Denist that really cares about her patients. If your looking for a dentist, Dr. Gaball is the best I’ve ever seen!

A new dentist is always good for some anxiety, especially when you have a broken tooth. Welcome to the greatest dentist office ever. From the minute you walk in, the staff is friendly, personally introduces themselves, and asks how you are and if you need anything. The doctor is so chill yet confident, and helps you to relax immediately. So incredibly kind, and a very experienced expert, too. She not only painlessly fixed my cracked tooth, but made my smile look better than it has in years. For a very reasonable price. I have a new dentist and couldn't be happier. Thank you, Dr. Gaball and staff.
Lori M.
The staff at Midstate Oral Surgery are extremely professional and courteous. From the moment I called to schedule my appointment they were willing to do what they could to help. Would recommend to anyone needing dental care to check them out!
Chris F.
I recently had a routine cleaning and then three crowns placed by Dr Gaball and her team and during both visits I greatly appreciated their attention to detail, perfectionism, patience and sincere kindness. I've never felt pampered at a dentist's office before, but I did the other day. They made sure I was as comfortable as possible during the entire procedure. They gave me a blanket and sprayed some essential oils as a sort of relaxing aromatherapy. I would highly recommend Dr Gaball and her team to anyone. They are fantastic!
Susane J.
I can't imagine how dental treatments could be better. I unconditionally recommend Dr. Gaball and her practice. The quality of the dentistry is fantastic and they work 110% to ensure a positive experience. This is coming from someone who has hated going to the dentist for decades. Dr. G. is the best!

Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Would recommend this clinic to anyone. By far one of the more pleasurable and thorough dentist appointments I have had.
Antouan B.
An incredibly well run practice. The doctor is so kind and gentle. I have gone from a dental avoider/worrier to someone who is so happy to have my teeth in excellent shape. Definitely ask about the better pricing plan. Really lowered the cost.

Everyone in the office is outstanding. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Gaball is always very kind and explains everything extremely well. Her office is top notch and I would highly recommend Dr. Gaball and her office staff.

I just had a dental cleaning appointment at Inspire Smiles. The entire office staff did a great job during my dental appointment. It was a well oiled machine. Everyone was nice and informative. As always, Chelsea did a wonderful job cleaning and shining my teeth. I told Chelsea that Dr. Gaball and she always made me feel safe with their cleaning protocols even before the COVID-19. Job well done for everyone.

Great experience with their office, professional, clean office with high quality equipment and highly educated staff no short-cuts on their patient care. Great Job, found a small space by an older crown and recommended a redo as their could be decay underneath, I went ahead on Dr Gaballs recommendation and sure enough she was right! So glad they caught it before it got worse, new crown fits great & I know tooth is protected underneath .... highly recommend

Dr Gaball and her team has taken very good care of our family dental needs since we moved to the area in July. She quickly made herself available when my son had a dental emergency. The quality of the care has been excellent and we highly recommend her. Jill in the front office is super friendly and is very well organized. She has also helped us with all kinds of tips to get to know the neighborhood.
We are very happy that we have Dr Gaball as our dentist.
I also got to meet her husband Dr. Curtis Gaball in the office, who is a Facial Plastic Surgeon and offer all kinds of treatments. I had my first botox session with him and I'm planning to have other preventive treatments with him in the future.

Andrew F.

I had major tooth pain while out camping and spoke with Dr. Gaball, who reassured me and set up a visit. It required root canal treatment, which was promptly set up, and then a crown. Dr. Gaball and staff performed all treatment professionally with no issues on my end. Her staff is very friendly and accommodating, a pleasure to be around.
I also use Dr.Gaball for periodic dental maintenance and her staff excels at this as well.

An amazing staff ! Had my first appointment yesterday! Dr.Gaball was so gentle with my sensitive teeth. Great place- I recommend to anyone and everyone! My two teenage girls also had their first appointment a few weeks ago and love Jenine and Dr. Gaball and of course Linda too! Thanks to everyone for a great experience!

Joy W.

Oceanside, CA

Dr. Elona Gaball is an amazing dentist! Not only is she excellent in all her work, but she is sensitive to the patients needs. I have had several examinations and fillings in my teeth by other dentists, but her work was so detailed, the fillings look like part of my teeth! She also gave me tips on how to better brush my teeth and a special gel to re-mineralize soft spots in my enamel. The office is quite cozy with free tea, coffee, and snacks, which have been a lifesaver! 🙂 I commute from my home in Oceasnside just to see her! It has been a great blessing! Please come, and enjoy your experience today!

Dr Gaball is very personable, nice and attentive. Did a great job with my dental issues as well. She explained everything and showed me digital pictures of my teeth. Got fillings, no pain during or after. I actually found the experience relaxing which I did not expect. Work was efficient. The office is very clean and well organized. Location is very convenient. Highly recommended.

Thank you Dr. Gaball and your entire staff: Chelsea, Andrew, Tricia, and Briana, for welcoming me right away on an emergency basis for my tooth extraction and replacement. As usual, you did a very skillful job and made me feel relaxed, especially when you and Chelsea were humming along with the soothing overhead music.

Going to the dentist is one of my least favorite activities. But Elona and her team make it bearable. Great service, relaxing environment and top of the line care.

Brett S.

Alpine, CA

Dr. GABALL does incredible work. I have had issues with my front tooth and the filling in it for decades. It never felt right/looked right. My tooth looks and feels great. She is a perfectionist and that's what you want in a dentist especially when your front teeth are involved. She is very caring and only wants the best for her patients and doesn't do any unnecessary treatment. Her team is very friendly and knowledgeable. I have recommend her to my family and friends and anyone looking for a dentist.

I have been seeing Dr. Gaball for about two years now and am still impressed by her attention to detail. I have always had a good experience with any procedure that was performed. She is caring and personable along with being a great dentist. Her staff is superb !

I met Dr. Gaball at Yoga and also recognized her from church. Of course I had to share with her my immediate dental concerns. She was very patient and attentive to listen to me and offered me sound advice saving me a root canal. Fast forward, I had a crown come off and she was able to accommodate me very quickly. When I arrived at her office, I was cheerfully greeted by name, asked how I was doing, and filled out my initial paper work. My wait was brief and I was greeted by her smiling assistant and whisked away to an exam room. I was made very comfortable, she looked at my crown and tooth and said the Doctor would be right in. Dr. Gaball is so sweet and friendly that right away I knew that my crown and I were in excellent hands. She prepped the crown and reset it. I was in and out in no time, without the usual stress often associated with past dental procedures.
Just this week I went back for full X-rays, an oral exam and cleaning. Once again her staff were all very pleasant and I didn't have to wait. What surprised me was that after my X-rays, Dr. Gaball performed the oral exam and then did the cleaning herself! It was the most thorough cleaning I've ever experienced. I'm still running my tongue across my smooth clean teeth days later. I highly recommend Dr. Gaball if you are looking for a dentist who respects your time, offers excellent pain free care, and has an office environment that makes a positive impression on you. Feel free to contact me if you would like me to share more about my experience.

Dr. Gaball gives the best customer service I have ever had at a dentist office! She takes the time to explain exactly what she is doing and gives advice and answers all your questions. The staff is very friendly and the office is beautiful and clean. I had a teeth whitening recently, which turned out beautifully! I highly recommend Dr. Gaball! My husband and I have been going to her for a few years now. We trust her completely after going to dentists in the past who try to milk you for things that you don't need, Dr. Gaball only recommends treatment that is necessary!

Kc C.

San Diego, CA

Very organized, professional clean office, friendly staff and Dr. Gaball is the sweetest and does not pressure her patients to do more than they are able to afford or need. She is very gentle and truly cares for her patients.
I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great dentist. She is open Monday through Friday.

T M.

Always appreciate Dr Gaball's professionalism and all round kindness. Being at her practice is more like hanging with friends than getting dental work. I would recommend her practice to anyone. Keep up the great work!

Sanjiv C.

Dr. Gabal is a god send!
I have been struggling with severe jaw clenching for years that has resulted in a host of damaging effects that have continually worsened. Cracked and broken teeth, sleep issues, vision problems, etc...
After recommending and performing a thorough 'Bite Analysis', she recognized the issue causing all the harm and now has me on course to fix the underlying problem which will not only prevent continued and costly repairs for years to come, but will allow me to have my life back!
I am eternally grateful for this kind, gentle, caring, amazing person...

Elona and her staff were surely some of the nicest people I have ever met. They were very caring and professional to me.My mouth feels sooo much better now. Super glad I went to this practice. I hope to be going here for years to come.

Alana W.

San Diego, CA

Dr. Gaball and her staff are extremely warm and professional in all aspects of treating patients. Chelsea is always gentle and friendly during my cleanings. I chose to see Dr. Gaball for Invisalign as well and I am very pleased with her attention to detail and of course the final result of perfectly straight teeth! The office is relaxing as well. I have referred my parents and husband who all now see Dr. Gaball because I only trust her and her team.

Avery E.

San Francisco, CA

Look, no one likes to go to the dentist but, if you must entrust your dental care to someone, at 67 I can say confidently that there are few dentists out there who are as good with people as they are with their teeth. Dr. Elona Gaball is exceptional on both counts, being well educated and up to date on latest/best techniques and procedures, yet "old school" when it comes to managing her practice. In short, she's a sole practitioner with a small yet efficient staff who clearly care about their patients. I'll only add that this is an unsolicited testimonial based on my becoming a new patient and experiencing unusual sensitivity, clear communication and quality care. It is a pleasure to reccomend Dr. Gaball to any/all who seek good dental care.

Drew M.

Seward, AK

Was able to take care of a cavity same day. It's bad enough getting a cavity but worse when you have to schedule another appointment. And she did a great job too. No pain and she explained what she was doing throughout. All the assistants are super pleasant too!

Andrea Z.

San Diego, CA

I moved away from the area of Dr. Gaball but I still drive the extra 40 miles for my cleanings and any other work. Great Dentist. I highly recommend her.

Olga A.

San Diego, CA

Dr. Gaball continues to provide me and my family with excellent service and work that we can trust. Two years ago I had a filling done by another provider, which did not alleviate the pain and discomfort with chewing. Dr. Gaball, on the other hand, was able to restore my tooth to excellent health with her great attention to detail to achieve the highest quality and outcomes for her patients. My children and I will definitely stay with Dr. Gaball long term, as we all know when you find a great dentist, you must stick with her!

Nina M.

San Diego, CA

Dr.Elona Gaball is an amazing dentist. Her office is very welcoming and helpful. No one likes going to the dentist but Dr. Gaball is such a personable Dr. that she eases your nerves on anything from a routine cleaning to having to perform additional work.
She has a wealth of knowledge on care and provides great tips for at home practice for better dental care. I highly recommend going to Elona Gaball

Serge M.

Seattle, WA

I just had a cleaning performed by Dr. Gaball. This was the best cleaning in my life that took well over an hour. In addition to cleaning my teeth, she explained all the issues and recommended effective treatment for my gums. I highly recommend this dentist to anyone who cares about their teeth.

Phil W.

Minnetonka, MN

I don't typically write reviews but I felt inspired to do so today. The majority of dentists that I have seen have come across very pushy and pretentious. Dr. Gaball was the opposite. She was very positive and helpful, but also down to earth. She gave me a lot of great recommendations but encouraged me to think about them and only move forward if I thought it was necessary. She went the extra mile to ask me a lot of questions and even was thoughtful enough to ask if I still had enough time to get to work after our appointment. Highly recommended.

Michael C.

San Diego, CA

Everyone at the office was very pleasant, and Dr Gaball was super nice and did good work, so for a dentist appointment, doesn't really get much better-also was happy to see a fish tank at the entrance, will definitely come back ,
