Sit back and relax in our dental home by the sea

Our beautiful office radiates a warm and homey atmosphere designed with your comfort in mind. You will instantly be relaxed from the moment you sit in the dental chair, which overlooks the beautiful seaside community.

We will do everything it takes to make you comfortable. Our number-one goal is to help you feel like you are not at a “dental office,” and we do this by offering:

  • Comfortable and supportive chairs with neck pillows
  • Flat screen televisions in every operatory with Direct TV and digital x-ray viewing capability
  • Personal headphones for your iPad/iPod/smart phone to create your own dental atmosphere
  • Warm, soft aromatherapy towels
  • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for anxiety-free visits

Enhancing dentistry with cutting-edge technologies

Your comfort would not be complete without being treated with only the finest technologies available in dentistry. It’s of the utmost importance to treat you with what’s best for your health while maximizing your comfort.

We offer the following technologies:

  • Intraoral camera – A tiny camera that gives us a “tour of your mouth” to assist in diagnosing dental problems.
  • Soft tissue lasers – We can complete biopsies, gum contouring, and hygiene with ease with no discomfort towards you.
  • Digital x-rays – Low radiation exposure and can be viewed instantly!
  • iTero Digital Scanner – Can deliver models of your smile digitally, eliminating goopy impressions and providing instant communication. Dr. Dougherty was one of the first La Jolla dentists to implement iTero into dentistry, and is still one of only a few dentists around San Diego to use this convenient technology.
  • Latest Zoom! whitening
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Digital panoramic x-ray machine
  • Paperless software

We are passionate about exceeding expectations to make you as comfortable as possible. For the ultimate dental experience, please give us a call today!
