Dental Services

Dentist San DiegoOne of the aspects of our practice that truly distinguishes us from other dental offices is our comprehensive approach to dental treatment. We can handle any dental case, whether a patient requires a simple exam and cleanings or complex maxillofacial surgery. This is a great benefit for our patients as it allows them to work with the same team throughout the course of their treatment and have their needs met in one office. Our services include:

  • General Dental Care - The foundation of all dental care is preventive treatment. We have a team of hygienists at our practice who perform cleanings, examinations, periodontal maintenance, breath and plaque control, sealants, and pediatric care among other things. We also have a periodontist on staff that can provide laser periodontal treatment, deep cleanings, soft tissue grafting, bone grafting, antibiotic therapies, and guided tissue regeneration. By maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, you can help to prevent the need for more complex treatment in the future.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry - For many of our patients, the appearance of their smile leaves them feeling dissatisfied. As we age, our teeth can begin to lose their natural, youthful luster and appear yellow or dull. The teeth can also slowly shift over time, resulting in unsightly gaps or minor crowding. An unattractive smile can have a profound impact on a person's self-esteem and confidence, which in turn can affect his or her disposition and the impression he or she makes on others. Through a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments, including the placement of porcelain veneers or teeth whitening, we can improve a person's smile and boost his or her confidence.
  • Restorative Dentistry - If your teeth are severely decayed or damaged, it can have a significant impact on your quality of life. Tooth imparities can negatively affect your ability to chew and speak, and can cause constant and severe pain. Quite simply, you use your teeth every day - why not enjoy the benefits of sound oral health? Through restorative dentistry, we can return optimal function, health, and appearance to even severely damaged teeth. A number of treatment options, such as dental crowns or dental implants, can be used alone or in conjunction with one another to restore luster to your smile. Discuss your goals with a dentist at our San Diego practice to find out what can be done for you.

Serving All San Diego from the Jewel of the Sea

Our dental practice is located on the La Jolla Scripps Hospital campus at the XIMED medical center. We are conveniently situated for patients from throughout San Diego County; we're roughly equal distance from North County, South County, and East County. Residents of Downtown San Diego can be at our practice in only 10 minutes' time. Our office, which is open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 3:30pm, is located at 9850 Genesee Ave., Ste 620 in the heart of La Jolla. Below, you can find approximate driving directions (though we always encourage you to verify your own directions, as road closures or road construction may affect your route):

  • From North County - Our practice is located just east of the 5 freeway, in the Golden Triangle area. If you are coming from Oceanside, Carlsbad, or another coastal city in North County, you can simply take the 5S and exit on Genesee Avenue. If you are coming from Escondido, San Marcos, or another inland community in North County, you can access the 5 freeway via the 56W or 78W freeway. Once you arrive at the 5, head south until you arrive at Genesee Avenue.
  • From South County - If driving north, you can take the 805 or 5 freeway to arrive at our practice. If taking 5N, exit Genesee Avenue and look for the La Jolla Scripps Hospital campus. If taking 805N, exit Miramar Rd. and head west on La Jolla Village Drive until you arrive at Genesee Avenue, at which point you can head north. The campus will be on your left.
  • From East County - Patients heading west can access our practice via the 52W or 8W freeway. If driving on the 8W freeway, you can take it to either the 805N or 5N freeway. Once you arrive at either northbound freeway, follow the directions above for South County residents. If using 52W, take it to Genesee Avenue and head north. You will stay on this road for several miles and will pass Nobel Drive and La Jolla Village Drive before arriving at the Scripps Hospital campus.
