    I just want to give a review of my experience yesterday at Dr Hanrattys dental office. I needed major work.  No problem!   From the Root Canal Treatment to the Extraction to the Bridge Prep NO DISCOMFORT!   I COULDN'T FEEL THE INJECTIONS!!   Dr Hanratty and Tracy work together in perfect step. Like a dance they've done many times. Here it is the morning after and I feel Great!   Thanks guys! Sincerely, Sheryl Went to see Dr Hanratty today. I was coming in with swelling and infection. Ugh!  No way around it   It's time for ME!   I faced my fear and WOW! What a pleasant experience!  Sweet Dr H and his staff are as gentle and caring as can be.  I have dental issues throughout!  I explained my financial situation and my long term goals. Together we made a plan.   I wasn't made to feel any shame or embarrassment.   We are so blessed to have Dr Hanratty and his team in our neighborhood!   Sincerely, Sheryl Dr H and his Crew were awesome!   It all started with that horrible embarrassing tooth that broke. And I was long over due for dental care. From the injection, which I did not feel even a teeny weeny bit, to the beautiful crown I was super comfortable. Love the chill vibe   Angie worked with my insurance and introduced me to an affordable insurance that will be helpful as it's time for attention!I've put this off way too long! Now I have found the place and have no embarrassment or fear Thanks guys. Sincerely. Sheryl Caballero

    Dr. Hanratty is a very caring dentist. His staff is also kind and professional. He explains what is going on with your teeth and if you need work why you need the work. He is always patient, pleasant, and goes above and beyond when you are having a dental crisis which I greatly appreciate.

    So I was on vacation in Pismo when a crown of mine came off. Since a lot of the local offices had been shut down due to Covid 19 I had a hard time finding someone who would see me. However, on a recommendation from another Pismo Beach dentist, I called Dr. Hanratty’s office and within 15 minutes I was at their office filling out paperwork and was back at my vacation rental around and hour later. Dr. Hanratty and his staff were very professional and helped me resolve my issue. More importantly, I think it is telling on how well they treated someone who they weren’t going to get any future business from and helped me out even when he was just as business as the other dentists in the area. Thanks again.

  • Jun 12, 2020 by Crystal Dunneback

    very unprofessional practice. Had blue ink dropped on my face, neck and dress, was strayed with water the entire time(face, arm, and neck), and i had to clean myself up when i got wet. he demanded that he show me the picture of me teeth, which i didn't want to see, I'm not a dentist for a reason, and even asked if I had to see them and he said yes you have to look. If you are looking for a professional dentist, this is not it.

  • Apr 23, 2020 by Sierra Santiago

    We love Dr.Hanratty and his staff . They have always treated us amazing and I was always so scared to go to the dentist . Well I’m not anymore !!! ❤️❤️❤️

  • Apr 06, 2020 by Judy McCoy

    I am so glad Doctor Hanratty is my Dentist. I have used him for a number of year's. He works you in if it is an emergency the best he can. I had an emergency during the Covid 19 Stay home. He was amazing to get me in after taking my temperature. I can't say in words how Thankful I am he fixed my issue and stopped the agony I was in. The Staff, as always, was as well amazing. Sometimes we are given Angels and Doc is one and so is his Staff. Again Thank You for helping me.

  • Oct 10, 2019 by Hailey Hartman

    The staff has always been friendly and great. He’s had the same wonderful staff for years so they work well together. The Dr has a great personality and does a wonderful job. I’ve been going here for years and have never had a complaint. After major work the Dr also has called me personally to check up on how I’m feeling. How rare is that these days?

  • Aug 16, 2019 by Steve Cascarano

    Brian and his staff are the best . My teeth have serious issues due to cancer treatments and of course my own neglect . Brian has made it real comfortable for me and my budget . Brian and his wonderful staff are working to make my many visits ahead easier them I thought it would be . They all care about you and your dental needs .

  • Aug 07, 2019 by Ra W.

    I broke a tooth while on vacation and found this dentist on here Dr. hanratty and staff were so kind gentle and caring and I had NO Pain at all. My experiences from the past are no longer scarey . This Dr. And staff really care. One of the best experiences I have had ! Thank you so much.

  • Apr 08, 2019 by Smith J.

    I have had absolutely horrible experience's in the past that led me to not seeing a dentist in over 13 years. Dr Hanratty is WONDERFUL! He is patient and kind and funny (which helps to distract me). I am beyond thankful for his kind staff and all that they have done for me in getting my mouth healthy! I will highly recommend this dental office to Everyone I know!

  • Mar 27, 2019 by Phil E.

    I,ve been seeing Dr. Hanratty for over 10 years now. My last visit (3/26/19) was for cleaning, Danielle did a fantastic job. Dr. reviewed her work then did some new type of x-rays to look at an old filling. Dr. is somtimes a jokester, but he knows his stuff. His staff is friendly. I will continue his service.

  • Mar 26, 2019 by Julie Molina

    Dr. Hanratty as well as his staff are awesome. Both receptionists are wonderful and friendly, they smile as you walk in the door make you feel like you want to be there. Dr. Hanratty is kind, gentle and caring, he explains everything in detail no matter if busy or not he pays attention to every one of his patients and his dental work is very good as well, I would trust him with any of my dental needs. His dental hygienists are all caring and gentle as well. I would recommend this office to anyone who is in search of a well rounded dental office from the dentist himself to his staff.

  • Mar 26, 2019 by Julie M.

    I would definitely recommend Dr. Hanratty and his office staff to anyone looking for a great dentist and practice all the way around. For starters he is an awesome, kind and gentle dentist who explains what is happening and what needs to be done with your dental work/issues. His staff is amazing. Both front desk receptionists are very welcoming as you walk in the office, they smile and are very helpful. Last but not least all of the dental hygienists are very nice and gentle. This practice is very welcoming and make you feel comfortable, like you want to be at the dentist.

  • Mar 25, 2019 by Ben Wagner

    The anger and unprofessionalism that Brian Hanratty showed because of a filling that he just filled last week and was giving me problems is inexcusable . He needs to put aside his ego and the fact he has 3 people in chairs and it is a Monday and put his big boy pants on and handle business. I would not recommend anyone to Brian Hanratty. A good doctor/dentist is able to perform under pressure if you want to retain clients. He broke under pressure and started questioning my feelings and disregarding them. Just think about this truth before you build a relationship with Brian. My wife and I have been Brians client for years and his behavior this morning was inexcusable which has cost him 2 good clients and a lot of negative feedback in our small beach community. Shame on you Brian.

  • Oct 09, 2018 by Sherry P.

    I wouldn't recommend Dr. Hanratty at all! He did a filling on my son's tooth and left it with a ridge were plaque could get in. He doesn't pay attention to detail. We had to find another reputable dentist to fix the problem. It was well worth it to me to find another reputable dentist and pay another fee to fix a problematic tooth that should of been redone at no expense, then to go back and trust Dr. Hanratty again! The office staff was very unprofessional, and as a former RDA I found this office is a merely a one star. If there were an option for a half star, that would be the one that I'd choose. Again, keep searching, don't stop here.

  • Aug 27, 2018 by Barbara F.

    Beware of Dr. Hanratty, he does not always tell you the problems he is having nor does he tell you that he would rather not do the work as the insurance payment is too low.  I will not go back.  I was not told the truth nor given options to low insurance payments or work that he was not comfortable doing.

  • Jul 12, 2018 by Bonnie E.

    Was looking for a new dentist because I knew my long time dentist was close to retirement, but not that impressed with this office after my initial visit. Had to sit thru old corny comments that I'm sure his staff has heard a thousand times. Xrays were taken and - of course - work had to be done - soon - and here's the estimate. Felt like a real sales job.  It was the same report my previous dentist had always advised me to wait on and just monitor. Other cleanings I've had took at least 45-50 minutes, but they zipped thru it in a rapid 15-20 minutes.  The dental room had wires and clutter everywhere and really didn't look professional. He also made a derogatory comment about my veneers that had been done by a previous dentist - actually a well known dentist who was extremely accomplished and pioneered "no shots, no pain - beautiful teeth". And when I requested my X-rays - they said it would be an additional large fee.  It's all about the money for them.

    tried to make an appointment left a message days ago and nobody called me back.

  • Mar 22, 2018 by Jessica R.

    So today I was looking for a new family dentist, and I was so fortunate to find Dr. Brian Hanratty. When I 1st called his office to see about setting up a new patient appointment the lady who answered the phone was absolutely friendly. Surprisingly she said would you like to come in today "whaaat". That never happens I was expecting to set an appointment for at least a month out. When I showed up the ladies were all very cool. Once I met with Dr., and he did my exam I was very relaxed. His bed side manner is the most amazing I have ever seen. He is very gentle and has a great personality. Absolutely the most honest dentist I have ever seen. So if you want a dentist that is awesome Dr. Hanratty is your man.

    I've been going to Dr. Hanratty for at least a year now, and he's awesome! Every single time I feel super welcome and listened to. Not to mention he is HILARIOUS. I knew it was going to be a good time when he said he was drunk at my 10am appointment ;) I love how active and light hearted he is. I will go here as long as they will take me!

    I had my teeth cleaned last week by Sheryl, and she did a great job!  She was very thorough, had informative comments as she worked, and made me feel comfortable.  I liked the fact that she wore lighted binocular eyewear like a dentist would use, which gave her a better view of what she was doing.

  • Mar 14, 2015 by Lane G.

    Wow!  I had a great cleaning from my dental hygienist Sheryl last week. That girl loves her job and you can feel the energy!

Also I was made to feel like I was among friends which made me super comfortable.  Thanks Sheryl. I love my sparkling clean teeth :) See you in 6 mos. also I love the way you reserve the time slot that works for me. You rock girl. See you at the beach

  • Sep 02, 2014 by Terry M.

    My husband and I recently moved to the area and were referred to Dr. Hanratty by a local friend. I am verrry jumpy and twitchy at the dentist and no one blinked, eye rolled, sighed or tapped their fingers in annoyance. The office staff is efficient, professional, fun and personable. They have been very patient (no pun intended) while we sort out our out-of-state dental coverage issues. My cleaning was EXCELLENT!  Dr. Hanratty is professional, compassionate and he has a sense of humor. He respected my tooth sensitivity issues and did a very professional job on a tooth that is getting as long in repairs as I am in age.  Kudos to Dr. H. and his great staff.  I totally appreciate each and every one of them!

  • Jul 10, 2014 by Jan J.

    Dr Hanratty  and his staff are some of the most caring people I have encountered in a long time. Dr Hanratty is very professional but at the same time he makes you feel at ease. He cares about you as a person not a dollar sign. His work is excellent and he takes his time. I have been to a lot of Dentists in my years. He is the best I have ever been to. Thanks to you all for caring.          Janice Jones

  • Sep 18, 2013 by Merry E.

    My husband and I just moved to Pismo Beach and were looking for a new dentist.  We were worried about finding a dentist we liked as we had been going to the same dentist for the last 20 years.  I called around and was the most pleased with the staff I spoke with at Dr Hanratty's office so we scheduled our appointments and so glad we did.  The office was comfortable, friendly and professional.  We felt right at home.  Dr Hanratty is first class and so is his staff.  We highly recommend Dr Hanratty's office to anyone who is looking for a pleasant, professional dental office with people who care.

  • Aug 13, 2013 by Carol W.

    I intrusted Brian Hanratty to create two new front crowns for a tooth that was cracked and another one that was full of old fillings. His office staff is one the most caring I have every encountered in a dental office. Dr. Hanratty was very personable, yet businesslike in his approach to my dental needs. I experienced no pain during these procedures. It is my pleasure to recommend him to anyone seeking high quality dental care, completed by someone who obviously enjoys his work and demonstrates a sincere interest in his patients comfort and needs during dental procedures. Terrific experience!

  • Apr 02, 2013 by Flipit G.
