About Dr. Han

Dr. Michael Han in white coat

Dr. Michael Han is proud to bring his core values to La Jolla Dentistry, including integrity, character, and the passionate pursuit of perfection. Dr. Han makes #PrettyPeoplePrettier with dental implants and custom smile designs and provides the highest quality dental care to the most discerning patients.

Growing up, Dr. Han experienced subpar care from an uncaring dentist in a dilapidated dental office. After smelling cigarette odor from the doctor’s hands and having his tooth “pulled” aggressively, young Dr. Han left the office feeling violated and with sweaty armpits- wishing never to return.

Now that he is on the other side of the dental chair, Dr. Han is committed to making all patients feel comfortable and welcome in his care. He believes that equipping his offices with modern technology is an investment in you having a more safe, more pleasant, and more comfortable experience.

Dr. Han believes that dentistry need not be painful or scary, and you don’t have to leave with sweaty armpits!

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19


La Jolla Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry are committed to the health and safety of our patients, team members and communities. We want to assure you that we are being extra vigilant about your safety during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

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.
