Throughout the office of Moonlight Beach Dental, we have art from local Encinitas artists Dr. Yoni Whitten and LaMonte Lamoureux.
The Sandwich Spot in Encinitas, moved.
But now it can be delivered!
We love our team lunches and we love their yummy sandwiches!
At Valentina, a rare night out dining al fresco. So excited to support local business, and enjoy a night out. I felt like we were in Spain.
Kiddo here is giving his best ice cream headache / Gene Simmons impression!
I love our patients. And we all love Handel’s Ice Cream.
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.
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!
Leucadia’s Third Eye Threads makes these washable covers for your KN95 masks, so they don’t get contaminated.
Nicholas Hammond and his wife have transformed the craft spirits production area of their distillery into hand sanitizer production.
On Saturday, we went to Death By Tequila.
I love to support neighbors and local Encinitas businesses.
The entire menu is gluten-free!
Love my Encinitas vibe tribe!
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!
Wanted to share this little yummy vegan organic treat I got over at at Oh! Juice.
Great place to have a team meeting over lunch.
I’m grateful to have so many healthy food choices so close to our office!
I love ice cream, but I have REALLY sensitive teeth. It can be hard for me to eat ice cream or even have cold drinks. But, this can be treated!
Healthy snacks for the kiddo: Pressed Juicery in the Carlsbad Forum.
Vegan, sugar-free frozen treats with fresh fruit.
Kiddo loved it, while I had my cold-pressed juice.
As you can see, my son couldn’t be happier that there is a new gelato shop called Gelato 101 located across the street from our office.
You can see me repping the Culture Brewing hat, and I love their new tasting room on the 101.
I’m always about the local Encintas flavor.
Located just a block away from Moonlight Beach Dental, Modern Times opened something late last year called the Far West Lounge. This is a tasting room for Modern Times’ beer, but they also have an assortment of plant-based cuisine. You’ll love the chic 70’s decor.
Meet Jake, one of the founders of an all-natural SPF, Organic Surfscreen.
They are at the farmer’s market at Paul Ecke Central every Sunday.
I’ve tried and love all of their products. They are also very inexpensive.
There is a new juicer in Encinitas, and their name is Oh! Juice Cafe. They’re located next door to Lofty Coffee Co.
I recently enjoyed a gluten-free bowl of homemade probiotic vegan coconut yogurt with fresh fruit. I also had a turmeric/pepper/coconut milk steamed drink.
The Sandwich Spot in Encinitas is a great place to get a sandwich. Located across the street from Moonlight Beach Dental, most of our staff can be found there from time to time getting a sandwich during lunch breaks.
Ever wonder who is responsible for the look and feel of Moonlight Beach Dental’s offices?
Danae Netto is the owner of Danae Netto Design. I’ve been working with her since she moved to San Diego from Orange County 3 years ago.
Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream has opened in Encinitas!
At 9-months pregnant, I was very drawn to having a handmade scoop of ice cream on a gorgeous summer day.
So many choices. Friendly staff.
I love eating at GoodOnYa Deli in Encinitas.
This nutritious, healthy food keeps me going and energized on these long, 12-hour days!
My new favorite restaurant in Encinitas is EVE.
A super-healthy, clean place to eat, EVE is located just 2 blocks from our office.
Enjoy delicious smoothies. I love the bowls filled with gluten-free options and gut-healthy probiotic fermented foods.
Meet my new favorite beverage: The ginger turmeric latte from Ironsmith Encinitas.
This anti-inflammatory drink has turmeric, ginger and coconut oil – and it tastes delicious.
Luna had an injury at the dog park yesterday. When chasing a ball she had a collision with some bigger dogs. That means my poor girl spent the day at the vet, nursing a sprained elbow.
A big thank you to Dr. Brian Evans of Coastal Animal Hospital in Leucadia for taking such good care of her.
Need to escape from life, work, stress, anxiety, inflammation – or yourself?
Maybe you should try a sensory deprivation tank. I just had this unique experience at Float North County in Solana Beach.
Last week I posted about GoodOnYa, and all organic, gluten-free cafe. This week I want to post about my other favorite gluten-free bakery in Encinitas, 2Good2B.
Located at 204 N. El Camino Real, 2Good2B is a full gourmet bakery, where “everything is delicious, without gluten, corn or soy”.
As you probably know, I am a health-nut and a foodie. And when I find a place I like, I like to praise it.
GoodOnYa is an all organic, gluten-free cafe and juice bar located at 1051 S. Coast Hwy, near Hansen’s. You’ve probably seen the distinctive blue building.
Everyone knows I love juice and juice cleanses. Adding a juice a day as a meal replacement or snack is a great way to add nutrients to your diet.
Leucadia’s Fully Loaded Micro Juicery is amazing. Located on Coast Highway 101, between Lou’s Records and Pannikin, you’ll find everything you need as far as cold-pressed juice goes.
I always like to highlight local Encinitas businesses I like, and today I want to put a spotlight on Cal Pacific Orchid Farm.
An orchid farm in Encinitas? It’s here, you’ve just probably never seen it. Located at 1122 Orpheus Ave in Leucadia. Orpheus is on the South side of (and runs parallel to) the 5 freeway.
Kathy is the owner, and she’s been here for over 15 years. She creates amazing custom designs for a number of clients – my office included.
It’s been a while since I posted about some Encinitas local businesses that I like.
So I thought I’d do that today, with one of my favorite places to have a business meeting: Bier Garden.
New to the neighborhood is Ironsmith Coffee. They’re located right across the street from our office.
Pictured here is Raul, the owner. He’s awesome, very passionate and knowledgeable about coffee, and he makes a great cup of coffee.
Last weekend I was out of town. I got a severe headache that progressed throughout Saturday, and from past experience, I knew my neck was out of alignment. By the end of the trip, my frontal headache increased to motion sickness, and actually caused me to vomit several times. I couldn’t sleep.
Meet the people locally that help me out when I experience these issues.
Every day, people ask us the same question: “Who did your web site?”
They tell us it’s beautiful and professional. They tell us how easy it is to read and use. But what they don’t see is how much business it produces for us.
Let me tell you: It’s amazing. The number of new clients we get each week from the web site far exceeds any expectation I have ever had.
I’m continuing to highlight my neighbors here in Moonlight Plaza, and with this post, I want to introduce Lindsay Daigle, owner of De La Soleil – located right next door to Moonlight Beach Dental.
I went for a peel, microdermabrasion and some eyebrow reshaping to give me a fresh and lovely appearance… my key to staying young.
One of the great things about this Learning Center is that it provides a way for me post to spotlight interesting local Encinitas businesses and people. And one of my neighbors here in the Moonlight Plaza is Dr. Michelle Wolford, ND.
This post has nothing to do with dentistry, but everything to do with something very positive going on in the local Leucadia / Encinitas community. Some local Leucadians have taken their love for the ocean, and created a environmentally-responsible business that also happens to be just plain cool: Enjoy Handplanes. Check this out, it’s great.
Right up the street from Moonlight Beach Dental is Encinitas Surfboards.
They’ve been here for a long, long time, and their logo is almost ubiquitous with Encinitas.
The Surfing Madonna is now located on the Encinitas Blvd side of Leucadia Pizzeria, in the same shopping center we are, Moonlight Plaza.
What started out as an act of guerilla art is now a big part of the culture. Read about the history of the Surfing Madonna.
East Village Asian Diner is located a couple blocks from Moonlight Beach Dental – and it’s the bomb dot com.You can’t go wrong with their signature item, the Monk’s Stone Pot – a big metal pot filled with rice, veggies and meat or tofu.Affordable, cool, easy and fun. Robots on the walls and Japanese cartoons playing on the screens.
Moonlight Beach is about a block away to the west of our office.It’s fantastic that between clients we can take a stroll to the beach, and clients can do the same before and after dental work.
Leucadia Pizzeria is in the same center as Moonlight Beach Dental. Great pizza, we love the BBQ chicken pizza.
Lofty Coffee Co. is located caddy-corner to Moonlight Beach Dental, and provides fantastic coffee. You can always tell who has the best coffee by the long lines!
