Bright and Healthy Smiles

Jessy Sidhu, D.M.D. – owner of Del Mar Highlands Dentistry and Solana Beach Smiles – and Dr. Neena Patel are two professionals who strive to not only keep up-to-date with the latest advancements and technology in dentistry but to also build strong and long-lasting relationships with each and every one of their patients. Dr. Sidhu and Dr. Patel are both known by their patients for their kind and gentle approach that helps to create a comfortable, relaxing experience.

Dr. Patel, new to the Del Mar Highlands Dentistry family, has already become known amongst patients for her ability to provide care in a comfortable and soothing manner. “Dr. Neena Patel is patient with adults and children alike. She has a great deal of experience with people who suffer from anxiety associated with dentistry. This makes her a very important asset to our team,” related Dr. Sidhu. Dr. Patel graduated from Western University of Health Sciences and is a member of the San Diego Dental Society, the California Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. She is also actively involved in the Association of Women Dentists and regularly volunteers for St. Leo’s Dental Clinic in Solana Beach.

The staff at Del Mar Highlands Dentistry and Solana Beach Smiles pride themselves on providing top-notch customer service and personalized, quality care. “I have an outsanding team at both offices and we take pride in the level of commitment we have for each and every one of our patients. Our team goes out of our way when it comes to customer service and making sure all of our patients’ needs are met,” shared Dr. Sidhu. At both offices, comprehensive dental services are provided for the whole family. These services include preventative dentistry, routine cleaning, general and family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, periodontal therapy and cleanings, laser gum therapy, as well as the surgical placement and restoration of dental implants. Patients are also regularly screened for oral cancer, which has a rising rate of occurrence worldwide.


In order to ensure their patients receive the best care possible, both Dr. Sidhu and Dr. Patel are committed to the use of the latest technology. Dr. Sidhu has developed and patented dental products that have led to safer dental care throughout North America and Canada. In addition, both offices are trained in the use of surgical microscopes that allow them to see potential issues that other offices may miss when using traditional dental loupes.

When he isn’t spending time with his wife and two children or tending to his patients, Dr. Sidhu is leading an active, healthy lifestyle by mountain biking, surfing, and more. “I’m really into fitness and healthy lifestyles, and I advocate oral health as a part of total health,” explained Dr. Sidhu. While the team at Del Mar Highlands Dentistry and Solana Beach Smiles aims to cultivate life-long relationships with their patients, they also strive to inform and educate the community on the importance of a healthy lifestyle overall – with oral health being a large component of total health.
