City of San Diego

Your local dentists want to share why we love San Diego, CA!

A Quick Guide to San Diego!


When people think of California, sandy beaches, surfing, and a laid-back attitude are often the first things that come to mind. There is a reason San Diego has a worldwide reputation for being one of the best places for tourists to visit all year round.

However, there is more to do than just sit on the beach (though we wouldn't blame you for spending as much of your time there as possible). San Diego is also home to Balboa Park. The park is home to 15 museums, gardens, international culture associations, and the San Diego Zoo!

Whether you've lived in the area your whole life or are just here for a weekend visit, the staff of PDO Specialists are always happy to give our personal recommendations on where you and your family can have a great time in our beautiful city.
