Why We Love Del Mar

Del Mar is a beautiful beach city in San Diego County and is considered to have one of the most desirable climates in the United States, with a Mediterranean-subtropical range of temperature and humidity throughout the year. Del Mar captures the intense beauty of the Southern California coastal landscape without all the bustle of a big city. The Del Mar beach stretches for two miles and offers many opportunities to walk, run, or explore the coast via paddling, free diving, and surfing. There are 19 beautiful walking and hiking trails in Del Mar that combine the natural serenity of the area with vigorous exercise.

It is because Del Mar is such a beautiful environment and its residents are so health-minded and vigorous that we are proud to have a world-class dental practice right in town.

General Dentistry. Why We Matter.

It could be said that general dentistry is the practice of the routine. You get your teeth checked and cleaned and that’s it. But Dr. Han, an experienced dentist in Del Mar, knows that everyone that comes into his dental office hopes to have their teeth for the rest of their life – so he treats every visit with the “long game” in mind. Your checkups are thorough and comfortable and include a comprehensive evaluation. The doctor and his hygienist include with every visit:

  • Precise Digital X-rays (low radiation) to spot potential problems that can be easily corrected before they become big issues.
  • Oral cancer screenings that involve the face, necks, lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums.
  • A check for periodontal disease.
  • Surface check for tooth decay.
  • Evaluation of your previous dental work, such as restorations, fillings and crowns.
  • Gentle teeth cleaning while you listen to music or watch a movie.
  • Comprehensive oral hygiene counseling.

Most importantly, Dr. Han keeps track of the results of your successive examinations so they can be referenced with each visit.

Cosmetic Dentistry: Bringing Out the Brightness

Achieving a bright smile through cosmetic dentistry is almost always a transformative experience. Dr. Han and his professional team are not only highly skilled in the advanced technologies necessary to achieve this, they possess an aesthetic attention to detail that can transform your look to a natural looking work of art that fits your face and manner to perfection.

Cosmetic dentistry involves a wide range of procedures and techniques because everyone comes to us with a different condition and different desires. We cover everything from the latest teeth whitening processes to dental implants. With our in-house dental lab and partnership with the finest local specialist for referral work, we often turn long standing dental issues into bright smiles in less than a week.

What Makes Us Different?

Long ago, Dr. Han realized that the key to providing the most success for his patients was to build long-term relationships. That means charting a tailored lifetime plan for each patient -- a plan that encompasses not only your dental goals, but one that helps resolve any concerns or fears you may have. Our Del Mar Dental Care facility has made many lasting friendships over the years and Dr. Han and his highly trained team welcome you into the family.

We are posting this to keep you informed about the additional safety measures we are taking to protect you during this time.

We have reinforced our already comprehensive Infection Control procedures with our team members, which include frequent handwashing, use of clean masks and gloves, and disinfecting all surfaces in the treatment rooms and reception areas. We are also taking the following additional steps:

  • Increasing the frequency of thorough cleaning and disinfecting of all surfaces of the office
  • Instructing patients and team members to stay home if they’ve traveled to high-risk areas or if they have any COVID-19 related symptoms
  • Removing communal items that may be touched by multiple people throughout the day such as our coffee station and magazines
  • Maintaining a lower flow of patients to alleviate any traffic in the office and allow for social distancing

In closing, the safety of our patients, team members and community are paramount. As the coronavirus pandemic evolves, we will continue to actively monitor the local situation and follow CDC recommendations.

We are hopeful these proactive changes will contribute to helping our community get past the Coronavirus situation soon. We are committed to serving our community and are here to help.
