The dentist “family” that laughs together stays together: A warm welcome to Dhir Dentistry
We at Dhir Dentistry in San Diego, California, take a decidedly sunny outlook to your oral health. Led by Dr. Sanjay Dhir, a 30-year dentist, our team strives to feel like an extension of your family. We pride ourselves in providing friendly, non-judgmental, and warm care. We are also proud to offer care within an environment that feels less like an impersonal and cold “office” and more like a “home” where you can relax and take a break from a busy day. Our dental home and family balance this comfortable and pleasant approach with exceptional, high-quality care characterized by sophisticated treatments and advanced technologies.
Proactive, fear-free dentistry
Empowering our valued patients with credible, personalized information and guidance on oral care and products is a cornerstone of our office. We appreciate that protecting the teeth, gums, and oral structures is a gentle, non-traumatic, convenient, and affordable alternative to restorative treatments designed to address existing problems. Preventive services include:
- Dental exams
- Professional cleanings
- Tailored education that evolves with you
- Protective dental
- Safe fluoride supplementation
Additionally, when treatment is necessary, more conservative alternatives are generally recommended to restore the health and beauty of your smile. These options include dental inlays and onlays instead of full-coverage dental crowns to preserve maximum tooth structure when treating decay or other types of damage.
Our team is trained on the latest, clinically-proven techniques to prevent or restore your oral health. Dr. Dhir has invested in advanced technologies that support “gold standard” procedures, such as dental implants to replace missing teeth. Technology like digital X-rays supports our preventive, safe, comfortable, and pleasant approach to dentistry. These and other types of equipment aid in accurately detecting problems early. CAD/CAM “same day” dentistry also allows for us to prepare, design, make, refine, and cement restorations such as dental crowns in a single visit while you wait! Other dentists do not have the capabilities onsite to make restorations; they are instead sent to an outside lab. Additional top treatments and capabilities available at our office include:
- Invisalign® cosmetic alternative to braces
- Surgical procedures such as bone grafting and wisdom teeth removal
- Endodontic services; for instance, nonsurgical root canal therapy
- Implant-supported partial and complete dentures
- Safe calming sedation
- porcelain veneers
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Emergency care
- Full-mouth smile makeovers
- Much more!
Meet Dr. Dhir
I come from a family of healers and dentists; my great grandfather was a surgeon in the good old days. My grandfather, mother, and father were career dentists. I am a people person who believes in dignity and respect for all. I love what I do daily: dentistry is like a religion to me; it lets me make a difference in people’s lives, be creative, and provide the setting for social interactions with my community.
I like to enjoy my time at the office: I spend more than half my waking hours here. If I don’t have fun, then life would be a total waste. So my team members and patients have become close friends. When I am in the office, I am at peace with myself- it’s a happy, kind of loud, but not so serious environment. I love interacting with my coworkers, and they are like family to me; we have the best laughs together.
