Learn More About Our Guiding Principles at Encinitas Family Dentistry
At our core, Encinitas Dentistry is a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile. How we accomplish that goal is what makes us stand out. We mingle time-tested approaches to oral care with state-of-the-art technology and procedures to deliver beautiful, long-lasting smiles!
The Highest Standards of Care
Dr. Greg Skeens’ dental practice represents the highest standards of care in America – and the world, for that matter. He is an ADA-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is one of only nine medical specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) as well as several major international regulatory bodies. That means that Encinitas Dental Dentistry is operated under uncompromising standards. And we believe our patients deserve nothing less. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use innovative restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your dental health goals.
Part of a comprehensive treatment plan for all patients is maintaining our strict infection control guidelines. It protects you and it protects us. At Encinitas Dental Dentistry we pride ourselves on our vigilance. We achieve sterilization and practice cross-contamination protocols using standards set in place by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Education & Prevention
There’s no doubt. Preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. That’s why our practice emphasizes dental care before disease care approach. Our new patients often remark about how our exams are more thorough than they’re used to. That’s because we don’t use the term “overall” loosely. When we say that we’re going to check the overall health of your teeth and gums, we understand the inclusive nature of a commitment like that. We consider all aspects of dental health. We factor in your medical history, current illnesses, and your current medications alongside your dental history and proposed treatment before proceeding. After all, the beauty of your smile rests upon your general health.
Training & Expertise
You can rest easy in a dental chair at Encinitas Dental Dentistry. We want our patients to know that the dental health professionals here are a well-recruited team of highly-trained, highly-motivated, skilled clinicians. We stay apprised of the most up-to-date technology, products, and procedures by attending dental lectures, meetings, and conventions. We are members of several professional dental associations, including the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), and San Diego County Dental Society (SDCDS). We do whatever it takes to ensure our patients receive the best possible service and results.
