Ratings for Dr. Christopher W. Manning
I am a clinical psychologist in SLO but am very afraid of the Dentist because of my childhood experiences. Dr. Manning and his staff were outstanding in their approach with me, taking extra time to make sure I am comfortable. His skill and expedience were top notch. I have been a patient in the office for five years now, have had implants and a number of fillings replaced, and would never consider going anywhere else. Thank you! TS in SLO
wonderful office. I had an emergency when landing in LA and called Dr. Manning. He promptly discussed the situation with me and worked me in early Monday morning. I will always be greatly for him getting me out of pain so quickly. Thanks to his great staff Michelle and Pon also. Outstanding.
We love this office. Our family has been coming here for the past 5 years. My kids and wife feel very comfortable. Doctor and his staff are great. Very competent and clean office. Super friendly. I highly recommend them. Thank you, Dean from SLO
Michelle the office manager and Pon his hygienist are fantastic. Dr Manning is as well. I had an implant placed last week and was very nervous. There was absolutely no pain, like he assured me, I was shocked. The hygienist was very thorough and gentle with my kids and husband. We highly recommend them. Dina in SLO
The office manager, Michelle, is awesome although not very regular about making cleaning appointments. He is very fair and reasonably priced. The main reason I am changing out of this office is because he seems to be bored and no longer taking a personal preventative interest in our teeth. My son with braces went in for a cleaning and he spent under 10 minutes doing the cleaning. Not a very good job. He is excellent for emergency care, but does not seem interested in preventative care and seems to be not interested in personal dental health.
I been a patient of Dr. Manning's for six years, and would never consider going elsewhere for dental care. I referred a couple of friends who love him as much as I do. I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes, he works on one patient at a time, I've always been the only patient in the office, and he does his own cleanings because he couldn't find a hygienist gentle enough for his patients. He has gone way above and beyond for me, and has proven over & over that he's a healer as well as a dentist. He & Michelle are a terrific team.
My family have been patients with Dr. Manning since moving here from Phoenix 5 yrs ago. He is great with our kids and very gentle with my cleanings, as I have had some bad experiences as a child. Michelle his office manager is also great. Kim
My son broke his tooth on the weekend during a baseball game. Dr Manning met us promptly at his office and took great care making sure James was not scared. He got him out of pain and saw us for follow up the next week. Not many dr.'s would have taken the time out of their weekend to take such gentle care. We are now loyal patients of their office, thank you!!
We were browsing the comments one day and were appalled when we saw this terrible review about Dr. Manning. We are a large family in San Luis Obispo and have grand kids, kids, uncles, aunts and all of our extended family seeing Dr Manning, and have been for the past 15 years. We (over 40 of us) are Doctors, Lawyers, as well as grand parents and grand kids and over 15 years, not one of us has ever received anything but outstanding care from him, or his office manager Michelle. My husband and I (the great grand parents of the family) have had extensive but conservative care over the years, with the Dr always conscious of our budget. We were long time business owners in SLO and when someone complains like the other reviewer, it's usually about money. We have always felt his honest was fair and honest treated us like family. We will continue recommending him to our family and friends. Bev in SLO
Performed work beyond our agreement without my knowledge. Performed work different than our agreement (crowned 2 teeth that were to be veneered without my knowledge. Used permanent glue for temporary crowns which made for an exhausting and painful appointment and damaged my gums. I now have a chronic problem. Attached crowns that had falled on floor without cleaning them first. He, also, upped the final amount owed and asked me to pay before I'd received the permanent crowns. Finally, when I had an long term and extremely painful reaction to his work he decline any further help. He may be a good dentist but in my experience he was horrific.
