High Standards - Cosmetic Dentistry

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we believe that preventative care and patient education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary, as well as educating our patients on the best ways to care for their teeth at home.

Uncompromising Safety, Dentist Office

Uncompromising Safety

To protect our patients, and staff, we maintain infection control standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

A positive experience, Dental Practice

A Positive Experience

We understand how uneasy some patients feel about dental visits, and it’s human nature to avoid what makes us feel uncomfortable.  We are dedicated to making your time at Encinitas Dental Group as relaxing as possible, so you can receive the care you need to keep your smile healthy for years to come.

Our Practice

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To provide dentistry with our best intentions, we are committed to continual education and learning. Our office staff has been receiving for over 15 years, annual in-office training from Joy Howard RN, BSN, a noted educator in the field of not only OSHA and CDC issues, but in office safety and compliance protocols as well. We strive to keep current in making our office a safe environment for our patients and staff members alike. We attend dental lectures, meetings, study clubs and dental conventions to stay informed of new dental techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
