About Us

Grand Dentistry in downtown ESCONDIDO was started over 20 years ago in 1999 across from Palomar hospital to serve the local community. Since its inception, it has become known as a health centered, minimally invasive, preventive cosmetic practice. We are passionate about caring for the “person”, not just the teeth! We love patients of all ages and we trained in “listening,” which is the most important skill in dentistry.

We want to be your DENTAL HOME!

Taking Care of the People Attached to Their Smiles

We at Grand Dentistry can tell you that “we don’t treat patients like numbers,” or that “no patient is the same,” but that’s what every other dental practice claims. At Grand Dentistry, we have a unique passion for helping people. We go above and beyond to train ourselves in the “art of listening” by studying different personality types to better understand our patients to the fullest extent. We then can create the best treatment plan based on what benefits them and their needs.

“I drive almost 90 minutes to get to Grand Dentistry for every visit. The quality of their care makes the drive worthwhile. The dentists and staff are excellent!”
- Jim Szeyller

“I've been coming to Grand Dentistry for 15+ years. They make you feel like family right when you walk in. Dr. Bonar and Dr. Basso are so kind and such great listeners so you feel comfortable and relaxed. I love it here! Marlene is my hygienist and I love her. She is so gentle and thorough. When she's finished I know my teeth are sparkling clean. I don't trust my teeth with anyone else!”
- Shauna Rau

“Grand Dentistry has ALWAYS been top-notch.  Their people are all very friendly and personable.  I just had my teeth cleaned and Sonia is a joy to be with. She did a great job with the least amount of pain (I don't know about you but I've through lots of pain when I've had my teeth cleaned at other dental offices). They've been our dental office for many years and we'll never go anywhere else.
- Cameron Matthews

“I just switched to this dentist and this office has everything I have been looking for from the high tech equipment to the staff. They are very nice, professional and down to earth people. I felt very comfortable and not nervous as I usually do when I go to the dentist. This is going to be my new dentist for many years to come.”
- Mary Methot

“The entire staff, from front desk to dentists (including techs) is amazing. They are kind and friendly. I am terrified of dental work, and EVERYONE in the office is understanding and helpful. I have had previous dentists who shame or ridicule me for my fear, but not this place! Dr. Basso listens to my fears, and he works hard to make me feel safe. This place has helped me to come so far in reducing my fears!”
- Tamminy Fisk

“My husband & I have been going to Grand Dentistry for 2 years! The office staff is beyond amazing! Very friendly and accommodating. We both go to Dr. Basso - he is great! We definitely recommend this office to everyone.”
- Ashley Daoud
