Dr.Curtis L. Chan, DDS and his team pride themselves on building long-term relationships with patients that will lead them on the path to optimal dental health and a beautiful smile.

Dr. Chan opened his dental practice in 1986, shortly after he graduated from dental school at Loma Linda University. “As a California native, I knew I wanted to build a dental business close to the ocean with the best climate conditions. I knew San Diego was the place when I accompanied my father to a medical conference here,” said Dr. Chan. In 2012, Dr. Chan relocated the practice to a new state-of-the-art facility in Del Mar.

The practice also uses technology to keep patients happy and comfortable during dental procedures. “Personal video display glasses are available with hundreds of movies that can be viewed while your dental care needs are met,” stated Dr. Chan.
