What Our Patients Say

Carol’s Story

One of the things I love about [Dr. Amorteguy] is that she is always investigating the outer fringe of knowledge in dentistry but she works with us conservatively so that means that the conservative line is always moving forward because she always knows what is new and what is happening so she advances with that.


Ben’s Story

[Dr. Amorteguy] is very kind. She does not pressure you to do anything you do not want to do. She goes over everything with you before you do it so you are always making the most informed decision possible… I live 35 minutes away…and I do not regret that drive at all every time and I’m actually happy to come to the dentist’s office whenever I come to Dr. Amorteguy’s office.


Steven’s Story

My entire smile – front to back, lower – are completely new teeth [with veneers]. It has been wonderful. Teeth feel fine, look great, and nobody ever knows the difference so it’s a happy story.

Dr. Amorteguy is the apex of fine dentistry. I will and often do recommend her to family and friends.


As always, this office is extremely professional and competent, even in a pandemic. Love that it's operated by an amazing female staff and my teeth are always treated with the uttermost care.

I'm very picky about who I let touch my teeth and I've lived all over - NYC, Paris, London, etc. - and this office is top notch.

Angela B.

Dr. Amorteguy and her staff are kind, efficient and very attentive to my needs.

I have had extensive dental work done by doctor and I can say with confidence she's the best dentist in San Luis Obispo and beyond!! All the things that matter to a patient are taken care of, everything is talked through and where there are options, they are laid out clearly for the patient to choose.

Dr. Amorteguy has truly been a lifesaver for me!

Andy G.

Professional and very caring. Outstanding patient Interaction!


Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and Dr. Amorteguy was awesome. She broke everything down in a way I could understand and was conservative with treatment. This was the best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Amorteguy and her awesome technicians and staff!

Hilary L.

Dr. Amorteguy is top of the line and Karin the Hygienist will be a great replacement when Cathy retires. Dr. Amorteguy is the best dentist I have had in my lifetime!


I would recommend Dr. Amorteguy to my family and friends because everyone in the office is concerned and invested in my dental health. Also, I appreciate an aggressive preventative approach.

Dr. Amorteguy and her staff are great. My wife and I moved to the area a few months ago, and looked for a new dentist. Based on a recommendation from a friend, we both went to Dr. Amorteguy this week. She was kind, and knew exactly what we needed. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist!

Karen Mireles
I had my first visit with Dr. Amorteguy today and am so happy I found her. The patient care coordinator was great from the start, the assistant was very nice and Dr. Amoeteguy was knowledgeable, patient, and addressed all my concerns. I learned things today about my teeth and gums I didn't know. I look forward to working with her to get a smile that i will love. Thank you, Dr. Amorteguy and staff.

Team Amorteguy has an exemplary blend of restorative and preventative dental practices. I always feel I’m getting the best dentistry available. For my wish list: a senior discount would be icing on the ( sugarless) cake.
