Practice Philosophy

The mission of Great Smiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics is to provide the highest level of specialty care. Our doctors and staff’s attention to detail and clear communication allows us to provide individualized dental treatment and achieve outstanding results in a comfortable environment. The goal of pediatric dental specialists is to make sure every child’s experience is positive. We are experts in prevention, anticipation and treatment of dental problems.  Our orthodontists combine decades of clinical experience with advanced technologies to create healthy, confident smiles for children and adults.

The Great Smiles team is committed to continuing education and maintaining proficiency in new technologies in order to treat our patients effectively and efficiently. The doctors are well respected for their dedication and support of the community. As leaders in the profession, they teach in specialty programs at UCLA and USC, and have staff affiliation at Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego.

We are most proud and honored to have served the North County Coastal Community for more than 30 years!


At Great Smiles, we offer comprehensive pediatric dental care and orthodontic treatment. Our pediatric dental care covers everything from well visits for infants to routine examinations, cleanings, and treatment for our older patients. Our orthodontic services focus on correcting tooth and jaw irregularities to create great smiles. Our patients can choose from traditional silver, gold or clear ceramic braces, Invisalign® aligners, or other orthodontic appliances to achieve the ideal functional and esthetic results.

Financial and Insurance Information

Our goal is to help you maximize your insurance benefits.

At Great Smiles, we strive to make sure our patients receive exactly the treatment they need rather than simply what their insurance company feels comfortable paying for. Although we are not employed by a patient’s insurance carrier, we’re happy to be helpful by requesting an estimate of benefits (EOB) from a patient’s insurer or filing a claim on our patient’s behalf at no charge. This approach, coupled with the advanced skills and invaluable experience of our Great Smiles doctors and staff, means that patients receive exactly the treatment they need to ensure long term dental health.
