Baby Teeth

When to Start Visiting The Dentist

Do you ever wish you could have a whole team of support to help take care of the littlest ones in your family? According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, families should bring their child in to see their pediatric dentist within six months of their first tooth erupting. When your child comes in for their first dental exam, our whole staff gets involved in creating a warm experience of joy and learning. We help examine and monitor the formative years of your child’s dental health to support a healthier smile as they grow, using preventive care at home and in-office to reduce the need for more invasive or expensive treatments in the future. 

Teens And Young Adults

From Pre-Teen to Prom

Did you know that if you aren’t flossing, you could be missing up to 35% of the surface area of your teeth? Our family dentistry in Encinitas believes in supporting the long-term health and wellness of your teeth, not just fixing small cavities or decay. Whether your teens require straighter teeth with orthodontic treatment, cosmetic dentistry with teeth whitening, or seek painless wisdom tooth extraction for a functional smile, we provide built-to-last services for stronger, better protected smiles. In addition to our patient education (regular brushing and flossing, please!) we recommend coming in every six months for a professional cleaning and dental exam

Beyond Prom Photos

Dentistry for Adults and Seniors

As we get older we begin to notice more clearly how a change in our dental health affects the health of our entire bodies, especially after the loss of one or more teeth. When you come in for care in our warm and friendly, we believe in providing gentle treatments to preserve your health and comfort. Whether you need a denture, porcelain dental crown or dental implant we involve our patients in deciding on their ideal treatment options and never recommend unnecessary procedures. At our family dentistry your care and comfort is our priority. 

Your Health In Mind

Less Radiation, More Comfort! 

Going to the Encinitas family dentist is something we want our patients to smile about! When you come in for a six month cleaning our DEXIS digital radiography delivers state-of-the art digital imaging using a fraction of the radiation exposure of traditional X-rays. Not only does our advanced technology allow us to minimize radiation exposure, but because digital images are available in less time than waiting for film to develop, you spend less time waiting at your appointment! Our staff continually works on improving our services and education so each of our patients can feel safe and comfortable in an environment that continues to think about their health.
