Comprehensive Dental Care
We look at the overall picture of your oral health and strive not to fall into “tunnel vision” with one particular tooth. Education and prevention are paramount in our practice. In the event that dental problems are present, it is imperative that the source of the problem is addressed in an understandable way for the patient so we can work together to prevent recurring problems in the future.
When more substantial work is necessary, we are very thorough on the front end. Often times molds of your teeth are made and placed on a jaw simulator, photographs are taken and diagnostic information is gathered together for a thorough analysis. Once this is done, our doctors can educate patients on their condition, future prevention and various options of treatment that are available. It is only at this point that a patient can make an informed decision on their treatment and how they would like to proceed.

What Does That Mean For You
Many times it is not necessary for our patients to be inconveniently referred around town for different procedures, for example, many root canals, extractions, and surgical implant placements can be done in the office. We do, however, recognize that there are times where specialty care is needed and a team approach is appropriate for optimum treatment for the patient. In these cases, we work with several skilled, highly compassionate specialists in the San Diego area who hold similar philosophies of our practice and have our patient’s best interest in mind.
