Robert Sunstein, DDS and His Staff Give Patients a Reason to Smile

For Robert A. Sunstein, DDS, dentistry and orthodontics have been a passion since he was a child. “When I was young, I had a swimming accident and almost knocked out my front teeth. After moving them back into place myself, my dentist said that I was a natural. Later on, after visiting with my best friend’s dad who is an orthodontist, I decided that I wanted to focus on orthodontics,” revealed Dr. Sunstein. Knowing that pursuing his dream would take hard work and dedication, Dr. Sunstein earned his Bachelor of Science degree from San Diego State University, his DDS from UCLA and two subsequent post-doctoral degrees in esthetic dentistry and advanced education in general dentistry. After a residency in orthodontics at Columbia University in New York, Dr. Sunstein returned to Southern California. He opened his practice in 1998 and has been helping San Diegans smile ever since.

Dr. Sunstein and his staff have a great deal of experience in the field of orthodontics and are committed to using that experience to provide the best service possible to their patients. Julie, Dr. Sunstein’s manager, is an orthodontic registered dental assistant and has been with him since he started his practice. “Most of my staff has been in dentistry and orthodontics all of their professional lives. And over the course of my career I have fixed every type of bite, from basic crowding to full jaw surgery. I really don’t think there’s a type of bite that I have not fixed,” stated Dr. Sunstein. In addition, he regularly pursues continuing education, attending a monthly study club and numerous orthodontic conferences throughout the country.

The practice offers state-of-the-art digital radiography and high quality orthodontic products including traditional and clear braces and Invisalign. Dr. Sunstein sees patients of all ages from children and teens to adults who want to improve their smiles. Regardless of the age of the patient, Dr. Sunstein and his staff enjoy celebrating the creation of a beautiful smile. “We have a party-like atmosphere when a patient gets his or her braces off, and each patient receives a gift from me and the staff,” said Dr. Sunstein. “It feels good to make hundreds of happy new smiles every year.”
