"I believe that easing my patient's anxiety is as important as executing cosmetically beautiful, non-toxic dentistry. We strive to make our practice THE destination for San Diego residents to enjoy a dental spa-like experience, where they can still expect transparency, an emotionally supportive staff, and state of the art dentistry." - Dr. Paige Woods, DDS

Dr Woods currently owns and manages one of San Diego's premiere holistic dental practices, Brighton Dental San Diego.
