Family and Cosmetic Dentist Has Provided Expert Care for Almost 50 Years

For more than 47 years, Dr. Stephen J. Rubinkan has dedicated himself to providing the most comprehensive care possible as a family and cosmetic dentist. After graduating from the School of Dentistry at the University of California, Los Angeles, Dr. Rubinkan opened his first dental practice in Huntington Beach. He has currently been at his Rancho Peñasquitos office for 28 years and shows no sign of slowing down.

Our registered dental assistant, Dawn, has been an assistant for over 30 years.”

The practice, which has two dental hygienists on staff that each possess more than 10 years’ experience, is proud to offer dental treatments performed with the latest technology to patients of all ages. “Over the years, dentistry has changed so much that there is almost nothing I am doing today that I learned in dental school. I have been able to keep up with the advances by taking continuing education courses,” said Dr. Rubinkan, who is a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Diego Dental Association.

What can one expect from a visit to Stephen J. Rubinkan, D.D.S.? The office provides all phases of general dentistry, including digital low exposure X-rays, no-mercury fillings, no-drill filings, laser cavity detection, one-appointment crowns, Invisalign, and more. “One can expect a friendly staff providing caring treatment and utilizing all available techniques to make the visit as comfortable as possible,” added Dr. Rubinkan, who shared that the most enjoyable part of his work is “developing a family type of relationship” with his patients. “I always treat my patients as though they were family and give them the same type of care I would give any of my family,” he added. “I have many patients who have been with me for over 25 years!”

As for his short-term goals, Dr. Rubinkan is hopeful to increase the staff and, in-turn, expand the number of days the practice remains open. “Long-term is to continue working as long as I can,” shared Dr. Rubinkan. “I love providing the best care to my patients and have found the advances in dentistry has expanded what I can do and made dentistry so much more interesting and satisfying.”
