What To Expect

Exceptional orthodontic and pediatric dentistry in San Diego.

Every child is different. Our doctors and team members are educators, partners, and advocates for your child’s oral healthcare. We provide individualized care appropriate to your child’s age and maturity level, focusing prevention as the best medicine.

We are sensitive to the desires of many parents to limit the exposure of potentially harmful substances. For example, our sealants are BPA-Free and our cleaning pastes are gluten-free. We have a variety of restorative filling materials and have the latest in digital x-rays, which provides the lowest exposure for our patients. 

We are proud to treat children of all ability levels and offer unique treatment settings for those with special needs.
