I went to Dr Catherwood a couple of times, because he was on my insurance plan. He recommended replacing a crown (that did not need to be replaced) and a root canal. Neither services were necessary or warranted. I ended up getting an very bad abccess and having the tooth extracted by an oral surgeon.

You'd expect a dentist in Coronado to be professional, warm... and pricey. And while he has the first two attributes, he is also reasonably priced. He and his staff are friendly and like to joke, but they are also very good at what they do. All procedures I've had done there (from cleanings to fillings to extractions) were quick and relatively painless and inexpensive. Plus, he only has you do what you need done, he's never trying to sell you stuff (tooth whitening, etc.). I usually hate going to the dentist, but going to see Dr. Catherwood is not bad at all. And note, I live in north San Diego County... and drive all the way to Coronado for this dentist: he is THAT worth it!
