Expertise and Exceptional Dental Care

Enjoying a latte, taking a nap during your dental treatment, or receiving a paraffin hand treatment are not the experiences typically associated with the dentist’s office. At MOD Squad Dental, Dr. Greg Friedman and his team have been redefining the dental experience for the last 26 years.

“From routine cleanings for the family to patients flying in from out of town for one of Dr. Friedman’s life-changing smile makeovers, the service will always be above-the-bar exceptional,” said Jessica Blanchard-Friedman, Director of Exceptional Customer Service.cs_mod_1

Dr. Friedman’s expertise spans from treating and curing patients suffering from TMJ/TMD pain, to the restorative phase and surgical placement phase of dental implants, as well as the Chao Pinhole Gum Technique to reverse gum recession without grafts or sutures. “This gives our patients the opportunity to take care of all their dental needs with the practice, dentist, and team that they have already built a trusting rapport,” acknowledged Jessica.

Long-time client, Michelle, explained her visit, “From a comfortable chair with massage if you like, a warm neck pillow, and TV to watch if you wish, they remove your anxiety and make going to the dentist a pleasant experience. I actually look forward to my dental appointments.”


The positive relationships Dr. Friedman and his team build with every patient are at the core of their practice. Offering a wide range of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry, as well as orthodontics, Dr. Friedman’s extensive training and certifications ensure he can treat his patients in-house. “Over the course of his career he gained the knowledge that often several dental procedures are interlinked with each other,” explained Jessica. “Dr. Friedman wanted to be able to offer every avenue of these phases versus only being trained in one then relying on referring the patient out to another office or practice.”

Dr. Friedman and MOD Squad Dental have been recognized for their expertise and customer service for many years. They have been named San Diego’s Leading Dentist by the San Diego Magazine for five years, the Top Dentist for Cosmetic Dentistry since 2009, and, most recently, one of the Top 20 Orthodontists in San Diego by Expertise Magazine.


“MOD Squad Dental and Dr. Friedman pride themselves on being different in a way that has changed the traditional perception of the dentist and dental procedures,” Jessica said. Whether it’s a routine cleaning, advanced dental procedure, or life-changing smile makeover, “Dr. Friedman’s reputation truly exudes that experience does matter.”
