Dr. Dave

Dr. Dave is a Southern California native. At age 6, in second grade, he drew a picture of himself as a dentist (see below). His apparent passion for dentistry at such a young age paved the way towards the enthusiasm he now exhibits at his Downtown San Diego practice. Dr. Dave combines his dental expertise and excitement for the latest technology with a fun loving personality, making each visit as pleasurable as a dental visit could possibly be. AND IT CAN BE!!!

At Coastal Dental Arts, the traditional icons you are used to seeing when you visit the dentist have been replaced with contemporary works of art, Hi-Definition flat-screen televisions (in each treatment area), cordless audio systems, and a comfortable, inviting atmosphere. The difference at Coastal Dental Arts is obvious the moment you walk through the door.

Dr. Dave received his doctorate from Boston University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. He earned a Bachelor of Science locally at San Diego State University.
