Healthy Teeth and Gums for Life!

At our San Luis Obispo Dental Office, our passion is to not only restore health and function for our patients’ mouths, but to also restore aesthetics. To that end, we believe in treating each person individually and designing treatment for their specific needs.

We provide a comfortable, professional and caring environment for our patients and staff. From our hygiene department to our reception area, we strive to provide the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art care.

We are committed to gentle preventive care and making each patient visit a pleasant experience. We want to help you achieve a beautiful smile and a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. It’s easier than you think if you are willing to take it one step at a time.

An exam, x-rays and pictures of your mouth can tell us everything we need to know. This will help us come up with a step-by-step plan so you can see how you can get your teeth and gums into the best shape and health possible.

You’ll find a lot of valuable information on our web site about dental problems, diagnoses and treatments. We believe informed patients are better prepared to make decisions about their health and well being. We encourage you to review this information to help you understand any dental concerns you may face.
