"The team at Carmel Mountain Dental Care saw me same-day when I chipped my front tooth. They relieved my pain and fixed my smile in no time! I would recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in a dental emergency!"

"I have been a patient at CMDC for 3 years now. This place is truly a gem and I will not go anywhere else! I have seen multiple hygienists and two different dentists, they have all treated me with the best care, respect and great service. I have a lot of sensitivity, they keep that in mind and are gentle. They truly go above and beyond for their patients and I no longer dread the dentist! Thank you!"

General Dentistry in Rancho Peñasquitos

Visiting your Rancho Peñasquitos dentist as little as twice a year can have a dramatic effect on the oral and overall health of our patients, yet making the trip to the dentist isn’t easy for everyone. Our team at Carmel Mountain Dental Care works together to create a warm, welcoming, and judgment-free atmosphere in our San Diego office. By diagnosing, treating and examining various aspects of your dental health, our goal is to support you on your journey and build positive memories at the dentist.

A Focus On Preventive Dentistry

No matter how frequently we brush, floss, or gargle with mouthwash, dental health issues can affect the best of us. Oftentimes, it can be difficult to detect symptoms of a cavity or gum disease without the professional help of a dentist. To best protect and promote a positive level of oral health, we recommend that patients as young as one year old come in for biannual visits. As your local dentist in Poway, Rancho Peñasquitos, and throughout San Diego, we look forward to encouraging healthier and happier visits to the dentist by offering gentle, preventive care.

General Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right dentist for you and your family takes some thought and consideration. Check out our most commonly asked questions to find out more about Carmel Mountain Dental Care, and to help you make your decision.

Do you offer pediatric dentistry?

Yes! With so many fruit juices, snacks and candies, the tooth fairy shouldn’t be the first to examine your child’s teeth! As your local family dentist in Rancho Peñasquitos, we’ve witnessed the many benefits that pediatric care can have on the quality of a child's life throughout the years. While your child's smile grows and their oral health develops, it’s important to come in for regular checkups and establish a positive relationship with the dentist. At your child’s appointment we are able to track and predict changes in his or her dental health and prepare for more successful memories at the dentist with healthier teeth.

What can I expect at my six month appointment?

When you come in for your six month exam or cleaning our team is able to review your dental health, observe or predict changes, and use conservative methods to support healthier, stronger smiles for patients of all ages. No matter what your dental needs or concerns may be, we’ll take the time to listen to you and provide a range of treatment options to choose from, so you can feel confident with a treatment uniquely designed for you.

Each regular exam at Carmel Mountain Dental Care takes about 45 minutes to complete. This includes a thorough teeth cleaning, where the teeth are carefully cleaned, polished and rinsed to remove destructive plaque and tartar that can build up over time. Patients also have the chance to talk to Dr. Lee or Dr. Moeckel and ask any questions they have about their oral health. Plus, they can learn tips to improve their oral care routine at home.

What are the benefits of a six month checkup?

Brushing and flossing regularly may not be enough to maintain your optimal dental health. At your six month cleaning or checkup, our Rancho Peñasquitos dental office provides services that give you another layer of protection:

  • Detect and address oral health risks or early signs of tooth decay, cavities or damage
  • Inspect your teeth and gums for signs of gum disease, gingivitis or periodontitis
  • Perform a thorough cleaning using state of the art dental equipment
  • Perform an annual complimentary oral cancer screening
