Hi, We moved a few months ago and need to find a good dentist in the area for my two boys (and us, if it is a full family practice). Thank you in advance. We have Delta Premier.

If you would prefer to go to a dentist that can take all of you, we go to Dr.Steve Beuligmann in Carlsbad (on Jefferson) His staff is amazing with the kids, especially the hygenist. Both my girls have gone to them since early childhood. Good Luck~

We go to Dr. Calvin Whang at Bella Facia Dental Spa in Poway. I haven't taken my toddler there yet, but I know they take kids.

I have taken my son to ABC Dentistry in PQ and I liked it a lot. But she only works with kids.

Hi C.
I recommend both of these dentists highly:

Adult dentist - Dr. Scott Payne
285 N. El Camino Real
Carlsbad, CA
###-###-####

Pediatric dentist - Dr. Tom Keller
1443 Encinitas Blvd
Encinitas, CA 92024

We now see local practitioners (we live in Mission Valley) but we definitely like these 2 dentists far better than any others we've seen before, and we've been shopping around for awhile! HTH, take care

Dear C.,

I heartily recommend James Spalenka, DDS in Rancho Bernardo. His number is ###-###-####. He's a perfectionist with 25+ years' experience and a great chairside manner, plus he has a conservative approach to restoring teeth that preserves as much natural tooth surface as possible. Best yet, he has state-of-the-art equipment that makes it possible to have crowns and other major restorations done in-office in a couple of hours, instead of over a three-week span when it's sent to the lab.

Best to you,

Hi C.-
My kid's dentist is Dr. Patrick Davis and he is in Encinitas. We actually live on top of Qualcomm in San Diego but when my now 12 year old was 1, she fell and needed to see a dentist for an emergency visit. I didn't have a dentist but my friend used to work for Dr. Davis and highly recommended him. We love him and his staff and have making the drive ever since. I do not know what insurances he accepts, so here is his info and I hope it helps.

Hi C.,
I was referred to an excellent dentist by a friend. I've gone to Dr. McKinney for over the last year and everything's been great, and they were so good with my toddler too. Their office takes United Concordia (military), so I bet they'll take your insurance. I highly reccomend, and good luck. ~E.

I have a fabulous dentist - Dr. Stephen B. Earle. He is on Lemon Ave in La Mesa. Everyone is so nice and patient with all of us. My kids actually love to go. They really love the hygenist named Liz - be sure to request her when you make the appointment. ###-###-####

Hi C.,
I would recommend Dr. Soraya Bouzida (Torrey Hills Family Dentistry - ###-###-####). She's done quite a bit of work on our family (unfortunately) between my kids, my husband and I, and we've been very happy with her work! My kids love her and are no longer afraid to go to the dentist. She recently started her own practice in Torrey Hills and she's still working to build her practice, so it's relatively easy to get an appointment. Also, we working moms have to support each other :)

Hi C., I highly reccommend the Dixon dentists. My kids go to Eric Dixon who is wonderful. I see Ross who is also great. They are both in practice with their father and Eric's wife. Dr. Eric pulled two baby teeth from my 6 year old son and he didn't feel a thing. In fact he had no idea that he had a shot - it really was an easy experience. He was so kind and gentle. They are great with kids. Dr. Ross repaired a cracked tooth of mine and it was easy and comfortable.
They are right off the 805 at Mira Mesa on Oberlin Drive. ###-###-####

Our dentist is Dr. Toppi, and we think he is great. He is in Clairmont, though, so it isn't N. County. But he is a Delta preferred dentist, and he is in practice with his two brothers. One is an orthodontist and one is a general dentist, and he is a pediatric dentist. My father is a dentist and a professor at a dental school and I had their pediatric dental department review all of Dr. Toppi's diagnoses and treatment plan and they said he was right on. I like the one stop shopping aspect, especially because I have three kids, the oldest who is about to start orthodontia so it will be nice to be able to take care of everything at once.

Dr. Patrick Davis is the BEST! Both of my daughters go to him. We had an experience with a pediatric dentist who tried to upsell us all the time, it was horrible. All of my friends' kids go to Dr. Davis. Try him, you won't be sorry!

If its not too far for you I take my son to Dr. Tom Keller in Encinitas. The entire staff is wonderful and he has individual rooms for each child with TV's on the ceiling.

I have lived here for 14 years and have gone to the same dentist for those years with 3 children. He is very good - a little on the expensive side (according to some people who do not have great insurance). We also have Delta premier so we do not find him to be expensive. His name is Ron Barry and he practices in the Vons shopping center Del Mar Heights Road and Mango Drive. He is very good with children as are the hygenists. If you do end up going to him, please tell him I referred you. He is starting to implement a referral program - something like teeth whitening for less. Good Luck,
C. Boyd

My child was very fearful of going to the dentist, and I say "was", because she is no longer fearful. Upon arriving at the office she was greeted by fun, bright colors and things focused on little kids. She relaxed enough to allow the doctor to look into her mouth and get a full exam, which included xrays. She was very pleased with herself. I must say this is an exceptional and one-of-a-kind dental office. The doctor and his staff were courteous and they explained everything to my own understanding. I would recommend them to EVERYONE! Thank you Dr. Baker and your wonderful staff.
