We were a little apprehensive about changing Dentist after Dr. Dickens retired. Dr. McCullough and his staff have been a wonderful change and we feel very comfortable with his dentistry. My Hygienist (Amber) couldn’t be more professional and kind! She is an unreplaceable asset.
– Daniel R.
Of course I always have a positive experience at McCullough Dental. It’s to the point where I get ran off because I never want to leave. Who the heck wants to stay at the dentist office? Thank you!

If you’re on the hunt for a dental dream team, look no further than Dr. McCullough and his crew. This humble doc goes above and beyond to make his patients feel seen, heard, and cared for. The front staff is equally welcoming and immediately greets you upon your arrival. There’s no waiting around to be acknowledged in this office!
I received my last two cleanings with Amber and she does a wonderful job at making me feel comfortable. She’s a pro at answering any questions I throw her way and make sure my concerns are addressed. The office is extremely clean, while the staff is warm, knowledgeable, and attentive. What more could you ask for?!
Amber, and the entire staff at Dr. McCullough’s dental office were that perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness! I am very pleased with their practice!

“My experience was great! It is nice to have the permanent crown the same day.”
– Diana E.
“I had an excellent experience with my crown procedure today. It started with a warm greeting at the front desk, then Maria called me back with a smile. Maria was professional and compassionate as she prepped and assisted Dr McCullough DDS with the crown which was done in one appointment (no temporary crown). My numbness wore off with no pain or soreness whatsoever. I strongly recommend McCullough Dental for their outstanding care they give their patients.”
– Rachael F.
“Dr. McCullough and his staff are absolutely incredible. Friendly, inviting, courteous, and professional. Beautiful, clean office. The technology he has is top-notch. Crowns are made in-office so it’s a same day procedure. No longer do you have to wait 1-2 weeks with a temporary. I needed a root canal and Dr. Mac, who did the procedure, was also amazing. I was scared to death, having nightmares about the procedure, but Dr. Mac was gentle, friendly, and I had very little pain during the whole thing. The smiles from the front desk staff when I walked in made me realize I chose the right office. My wife is also a patient now because of my experience. I would HIGHLY recommend this office!!”

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. McCullough & his staff. Doctor is nice, gentle & funny. Can you imagine a funny dentist? Well, he is. Like the 7 dwarfs, he hums while he works. The staff are friendly & very knowledgeable about dental procedures & insurance plans. The office is modern & VERY clean. They are always adding to the office with decorative items and the staff helping with the decisions. I personally have always had a fear of hygienists not at this office they are so gentle & friendly. You can tell they are generally concerned about you while cleaning your teeth.”

“Dr. McCullough Dental and staff have treated me like family over the past couple of years. During my routine check ups, cleanings, I received a reminder of my appointment, and when I arrived, I was greeted by a loving staff, who cares, and I was taken back within minutes of my arrival! And when there’s major work to be performed on my teeth, Dr. McCullough sat me down and explained what needs to be done and why. And I go into the procedure with confidence knowing I will be taken care of, and it’s because of Dr. McCullough and staff professionalism I am recommending to anyone looking for the best dental care in California to call or come by McCullough’s Dental.”

“Best treatment in my 60+ yrs of dental history. My one-visit crown on a front tooth was amazing! Dr McCullough is a master of his craft and everyone in the office is wonderful.”
– Sharon A
“Last year I met Dr McCullough when he made a crown for my back tooth. I could tell he really enjoys his work and I love people who have a passion for what they do. Because I found it interesting he let me see the machine that makes the crown, and let me tell you, it IS interesting.
Back in the 1980s I had a crown made by mould, which was sent out and cast in gold – a several weeks process for fitting etc, but that is not the modern way. No mold or 3D imaging. Dr McCullough used a material that matched the natural color of my other teeth. It was both faster and less expensive than getting an old fashioned metal crown and I am very happy with the result. The crown feels like a natural tooth.
Yesterday, I went back to have a teeth cleaning. The hygienist, Amber, gave me the best cleaning I had in my life. My mouth felt sooo good. If you are afraid of going to the dentist, you should really go here. They will take good care of you. Proactive care means less problems later on. This office has easy to find free parking, a nice waiting area – although I’ve always been seen exactly on time, and a pleasant staff. There were many years of my life I couldn’t afford regular care; I’m so glad they got my mouth back to looking good.
Last thing, I overheard Dr McCullough say something about delivering toys somewhere – omg, he does charity work, too? Yes, they were part of a toy drive for the local homeless shelter, they have a bin where you can drop off stuffed animals. This is really helpful for kids who have been displaced for whatever reason. Be kind. Life is short.”
– Kumari D
“Dr. McCullough and the Office Staff and Assistants who support him are by far the most caring and gentle people I’ve ever met in this industry. Never in my life have I looked forward to my dental appointments (as they all know). But Dr. McCullough and his staff have changed the way I’ve viewed dentistry. I get excited thinking about the incredible work that he is going to do for me! He goes all in, and does his very best every single time. And the results are always pleasing! Thank you McCullough Dental!”
– Diante E
“I’ve been going here for almost 3 years. I loved it! Staff is super friendly even through Covid. Super accommodating, and I love the fact they offer LATER appointments. It was the best 🙂
They transitioned to a different dentist and it was like NOTHING changed! Thank you guys!😁😁😁”
