As a Temecula dentalpractice, 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. Thats 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, were 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.

My true goal is to get the patient involved and excited about their oral health. I do this by educating each and every patient about their oral health, then go over how we can achieve this goal together. I know that a visit to the dentist isnt easy for many patients. I provide a relaxed and gentle environment to make your dental visit an enjoyable experience.
'We had a patient that had a history of psychological issues that led her to distrust anyone involved in the health profession. She hadn 't seen a dentist in years but had come in because she broke her tooth. After listening to her concerns and empathizing with her past issues, she was amazed at how pain-free and gentle we were. Needless to say, she now loves coming to the dentist and takes pride in referring her other friends and co-workers to our office.'
