More Important Than Teeth

As your pediatric dentist in San Diego, we've designed our dental services and orthodontic care plans to help care for your children's future development.

We believe a smile is more than just an aesthetically pleasing feature. A smile is directly related to a child's overall health and self-esteem. As parents, we know there is nothing more sacred than that innocent smile full of love and joy.

See how our children's dentists in San Diego can help guide those precious smiles.

Creating Partnerships

The very foundation of what we do is creating relationships with you and your children. For many years, we've earned the trust and partnered with multiple generations of parents and children. This is because we're never pushy or judgmental about the condition of your mouth or your child's mouth. Instead, we believe in taking a confident and honest approach to your dental care and work with you to provide the high-quality care we would expect for ourselves.

Genuine Care

We want to make a difference in your children's lives. This includes giving back to our community through outreach programs and becoming involved with local children's organizations, sports programs, and so much more. By doing this, we believe in making a tremendous influence and shape our children's bright minds while encouraging them to practice dental hygiene and be aware of their overall health decisions.

Delivering Excellence

Not only do we provide pediatric dentistry and orthodontics for the kiddos, but we're also experts in family dentistry and prosthodontics - AKA dentistry for adults! This is because we strive to stay at the forefront of the dental industry through continuing education. Our promise to you is we only use the best materials and techniques for all of our patients, young and old.
