Best dental care I’ve had in 65 years. I can’t say enough about my positive experiences with Dr. Drew. I recommend him to others all the time.
I never thought I’d laugh when I was sitting in a dentist’s chair, but I did! I have had the most positive experiences in their office. Everyone is friendly and helpful and since I am phobic about going to the dentist, this means a great deal to me. I have had my teeth cleaned there twice, have seen Dr Allyson, and Dr Jason did a root canal Thursday. I feel confident that I am getting excellent care and very grateful to Dr Jason and Sylvia for staying so late to make sure I was okay. I highly recommend this practice.
I created a yelp account specifically so that I could write a review for Dr. Drew, because he is so awesome! Dr. Drew is caring, thoughtful, easy going, and committed to ensuring that his patients receive the best dental care possible.
I went to see Dr. Drew because I got a crown from another dentist that wasn’t properly attached. As a result, the crown had slipped out of place. Dr. Drew was incredibly attentive to my concerns about the crown. He got me into his office on short notice, made sure that I was comfortable during the visit, used x-rays to show me what had happened to my tooth, contacted my former dentists to collect previous x-rays, and took the time to make sure that I understood my treatment options.
I’m a student, and don’t currently have dental insurance, so Dr. Drew even contacted my former dentist on my behalf, explained the situation, and followed up with an email. As a result of Dr. Drew’s advocacy and care, the former dentist has kindly helped pay for a portion of the cost of replacing her faulty crown.
I feel incredibly lucky to have found Dr. Drew, and am extremely grateful for his concern for my comfort, his expertise, and his advocacy on my behalf. I highly recommend him!

I have always been afraid of the dentist and because of this I needed a ton of work. I have been to many dentists in northern California and I have to say Dr. Drew is by far the best. From the front office to Dr. Drew they are very caring, competent, and impressive. When I am there I don’t feel like just another patient because they truly care about me and the wellness of my teeth. I have had teeth pulled, fillings, root canals, and crowns done and I didn’t feel a thing. A few of the visits I actually fell asleep. Dr. Drew really takes time to make sure I am numb and that I am comfortable. He doesn’t rush things and does a very through job. I think the thing I like best is that Dr. Drew takes the time to explain my options and even during the procedures explains what he is doing and why. I have recommended this dental group to everyone I know.
I went to see Dr. Drew a couple of months ago. I had a wonderful experience at his office. What stood out most for me was his commitment to making me feel comfortable, and to make sure that the procedure was as painless as possible. During the time my cavities were being filled by Dr. Drew, I was completely numb, and afterward had absolutely no tooth pain. This speaks to his care for his patients, and his excellent abilities as a dentist. Highly recommended.
I’ve been going to the same dentist on the east coast since I was six – and I’m 29 now – so needless to say I was nervous about trying a new dentist for the first time now that I live here in the Bay Area. I was recommended Dr. Drew by a friend of mine whose family has been seeing him for years, and even though I knew from them that he was great, he absolutely blew me away. The entire office is full of the friendliest, most competent staff that you can imagine. Dr. Drew and the dental hygienist, Rona, were SO calming and kind. I had to get a crown this morning, and I swear to you I did not feel a single thing the whole time. He was telling me jokes and funny stories and the 1.5 hours felt like 5 minutes. I would recommend this dental office and Dr. Drew specifically to ANYONE and will never go back to a different dentist again!
“Recently, I was experiencing severe tooth pain. I went in to see Dr. Allyson Drew at her new office located in Aptos since I was in the area on vacation and she is a dear friend of mine. She tested my teeth in the area which I had pain and discovered that I needed two root canals. Immediately upon return home, I contacted my normal dentist to let him know about my visit with Dr. Drew. He did the same tests as she performed days prior and concluded that I only needed one root canal and performed the surgery shortly after. For the following month I was still experiencing the same, if not worse, pain. I was told that this was likely due to recovery and a sore jaw from the procedure. Needless to say, I was back for root canal treatment on the second identified tooth a month later. If I had Dr. Drew in my area I would have had an entire month of summer without agonizing tooth pain.”
“Dr. Drew truly looks out for her patients best interests and provides a level of care that is at the pinnacle of our profession.”
Today was my first visit with Dr.Drew and I can honestly say I am more impressed with his office than I have been with any doctors office I have been to before! The staff at the front desk are all extremely friendly. My oral hygienist was Pam. Pam was so friendly and very gentle on my mouth (I haven’t been to a dentist in 6 years – so it was very dirty in there!) She was very thorough, and explained everything she was doing to me. My teeth feel much better! I have to go back next week for deep cleaning, and later on I will be filling in some cavities. Dr. Drew was honest and easy to talk to. I can tell they really care about their patients here.
“Dr. Allyson Drew performed complete dental restoration over the last few years on my teeth. This was done expertly with no discomfort at all. Dr. Drew coordinated orthodontic specialty treatments to get my teeth into proper alignment before starting the crowns. Before the restorations, I was self conscious of showing my teeth. I had chipped and crooked incisors. After Dr. Drew’s magic, my clean perfectly aligned teeth give me a smile to be proud of. I am able to laugh and converse with patients and friends with out any concerns. Thank you Dr. Drew! Dr. Drew is the best dentist with whom I have had treatments, and I speak with over 40 years of seeing dentists. I can highly recommend Dr Drew for her professionalism, friendliness, and excellent results.”
My husband and I recently started going to Dr. Drew and only wish we found him sooner! I was putting off getting a crown done, and decided to meet Dr. Drew to have a consultation. I was so impressed by Dr. Drew, that we immediately made the decision to switch dentists. He explained more than any other dentist ever had, walked me through all my options, and was really conservative in his approach (i.e., his goal is to preserve your teeth and not suggest/do more work than you need). For example, he recommended an onlay instead of a crown to preserve more of my tooth. I found his honesty and genuine demeanor to be so refreshing!
I have been Dr. Allyson Drew’s patient for over two years now and am so excited to see her in this wonderful aptos office. I myself work in a specialty dental office in Monterey and seek her dentistry. Her education and knowledge exceeds expectations for any patient who has any concerns or questions. I have referred 3 of my family members to her because of her great work and wonderful caring personality that places her patients at ease.
Just wanted to give a special thanks and congratulations to her and anyone considering this office give them a call!
