San Diego Oral Surgeons

Our oral & maxillofacial surgeons are available to help you.

Specializing in Dental Implants (including All On Four Implants), Wisdom Teeth Extraction, and other Maxillofacial Procedures.

We have three locations for your convenience and offer the latest in dental surgery technology.

Dental Implants

Our dental implants provide a permanent foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function so much like natural teeth you may forget they’re not your own.


We specialize in the early evaluation of emerging wisdom teeth so we can detect impacted teeth and treat them before they cause complications such as pain, swelling, infection and decay.


You may be a candidate for our teeth replacement in a day! This procedure is also known as a “Teeth in a Day,” “Same Day Teeth” or “All-on-Four” dental implant procedure​​.

What Our Patients Say

I have been very happy with my recovery from extractions a week ago. I had little discomfort and I want to thank you for your kindness and consideration with your follow up phone calls. You have a wonderful way of putting people at ease and the feeling in the office was very pleasant. You have a great staff and I will be sure to tell my dentist how pleased I was & that he should not hesitate to refer future patients to you.

Both of my kids had their wisdom teeth extracted this past Monday and everything went beautifully! Your entire staff, both front and back, are wonderful. You are all very skilled and caring in what you do. I will always feel comfortable referring to your office.
Kerry C.
I want to thank you for the great service I received in having my wisdom teeth removed. I had heard all the horror stories of this procedure from friends and relatives, so I was not looking forward to it. I can say that the friendly people of your organization turned this experience into a pleasant one. To my surprise the doctor followed with a phone call that evening to see how I was doing. This really blew me away & impressed me.
Gary S.
I’d like to thank you very much for a surprisingly pleasant visit to your office. With your skillful hand, my tooth came out without me even knowing it! You and your staff are truly wonderful people, so professional and friendly. In other words, I had fun there!
