Why Scripps Rock Dental Does What It Does

Scripps Rock Dental was built around the core belief that the experience of dentistry needs to be changed from the status quo. This dental office was originally born on the East Coast in a commuter town near Baltimore and Washington D.C. From that inception, their aim was solely to deliver the art of dentistry differently. They strive to make the dental experience friendly, easy to understand, and comfortable. In 2007, the practice moved to San Diego, and has continued to redefine the way dentistry is perceived and delivered.

They have built a team that loves people – if a team member doesn’t meet that core requirement, they don’t end up staying long. If they do stay, they get to work at one of the most fun and energetic offices in the country. The team members build long-lasting, deep friendships with one another, and it shows. Patients can feel the level of mutual respect and friendship between team members.

“The team strives to put patients at ease from the first phone call.”

Scripps Rock Dental strives to create an environment that makes it easy for their patients to complete the dentistry they need. This means continuously working to take the “road blocks” out of dentistry. This includes knowing the ins and outs of insurance benefits to make dental coverage as easy as possible. It means making a plan for every patient so that the team has a 100 percent clear understanding of where patients are starting from, where they want to go, and how the team with get them there – all before any treatment has begun.


The team strives to put patients at ease from the first phone call. Scripps Rock Dental has a light, welcoming atmosphere that you can feel the moment you walk in the door. Dentistry does not have to be scary or too serious! From the first meeting with your hygienist and doctor, you will sense their love of dentistry and their priority of building a caring relationship with every patient.

Scripps Rock Dental loves what they do. Go on over and meet them, they’d love to meet you and show you how easy and fun your dental health can be.
