Specials running through July 2020: Invisalign or SureSmile Teeth Straightening: $500 off full cases. Teeth Whitening: $100 off.
With this one tip, you can save thousands of dollars on dental crowns in your lifetime. Sometime in the future, you’re probably going to need a dental crown. If you’ve got a crown in the past, you know it’s not inexpensive or fun. But what really hurts is when you have to pay to replace…
It’s Toxic Thursday! Check this out: This patient had 2 root canals completed in the past year at another dentist. After each of those, she had constant inflammation in her mouth. Look at the spotting on the roof of the mouth: Tap/Click to embiggen. The x-ray didn’t really show much to help with diagnosis: Tap/Click…
When we were open during the COVID shut down, it became really clear that Moonlight Beach Dental is now a one-stop shop for all your dental needs.
Spring is almost over. June is here, and Summer is around the corner.
It’s just in time too, because after the extended shelter-in-place, it’s time to get outside.
If you’re not wearing a mask 24/7, maybe it’s time to spruce up your smile and present a new you to the world.
In this video, I wanted to share some of the things that I like to do to support the immune systems of my patients, as well as my own immune system.
As of today, May 18th, Moonlight Beach Dental is open for all services – not just emergencies!
Make your appointment ASAP, as we are filling up quickly… a lot of people missed their office teeth cleanings, since we were previously open for emergencies only.
Remember being a kid and seeing shapes that the clouds made?
Well, that’s a toothbrush in the sky. Must be a sign that Moonlight Beach Dental is reopening for non-emergency visits soon!
I tried the new Prager Brothers Artisan Breads Bakey here in Encinitas. I’m gluten intolerant, but their wheat is processed in-house and is less allergenic.
It’s a tiny-sized testimonial sent to us by a spectacular lady.
She lives 6 hours away from Moonlight Beach Dental, and she flies in to have us take care of her teeth!
Treated the entire team to COVID testing today! If you have no symptoms of for COVID but still want to get tested, there is a testing station in Encinitas.
I usually bring my lunch, but during COVID, I’ve been out supporting local businesses by buying my team lunch every day!
Shooting videos today to let everyone know about our COVID safety precautions and new procedures we’ve added.

Many dentists & dental offices in Encinitas are closed during the COVID-19 Coronavirus Epidemic. Moonlight Beach Dental is open for dental emergencies – by appointment only.
In this video, I want to review the special infection control measures that we have at the office to keep you safe during this crisis.
Fifty years ago, if a dentist told you that you needed a root canal, it was really bad news for you. It meant you were in for a very painful and traumatic procedure, where the dentist drill open your tooth before using little metal instruments to ream out the inside of the tooth repeatedly. Needless to say, it hurt a lot and it was a very traumatic. Doesn’t that sound barbaric? Shockingly, that’s still how most dentists do root canals today.
But what if we told you there was a new, modern way that not only provided superior cleaning of the canals, but it was also totally painless?
Don’t let fear of a drive keep you from getting healthy, there are different ways to get to Moonlight Beach Dental.
You can always hop on the Coaster and it will drop you off literally right above the office!
Just wanted to share this photo of the 3 doctors at Moonlight Beach Dental.

The entire menu is gluten-free!
Love my Encinitas vibe tribe!
Hey there, some good news for everyone: We’ve expanded our hours for 2020.
This will allow us to see more of you during the most popular days and times during the week.
CBCT offers you superior diagnostic abilities. In general, cutting-edge 3D & 2D CBCT technology allows you and the dentist to see pretty much everything.
I do love the optimism that most people have at the beginning of a new year, so I’m going to land on Team Hello 2020.
At the end of the old decade and at the beginning of the new one, I think maybe it’s an appropriate time to see things with more clarity – with 20/20 vision.
Too many of our patients want to get in before year-end and we will be open many days between Christmas and New Years!
Everybody’s gearing up for the holidays. In the midst of it all, I have a few things I wanted to remind everyone about.
Ah, the holiday season is upon us. Instead of making some specials available for the few days following Thanksgiving (Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc) we just wanted to throw a few specials out there that are good for the rest of the year!
I’m sad that Oh! Juice closed their Encinitas location across the street from our office – but I am loving Choice Juicery, who took over the spot!
Getting some fall flavors in a cool smoothie with adaptogens, anti inflammatories and protein to slay the day!
They used to call me Dr. Vane. Now they call me Spicy Nicole!
I’ve really been looking forward to this video being done, and now it’s here!
I wanted to make a video highlighting some of the key benefits that Moonlight Beach Dental offers people.
At the same time, the video highlights Moonlight Beach Dental’s whole-body, biologic philosophy – meaning that since teeth are connected to the body, dental health can effect overall health.
