By the age of 6, Dr. Dave knew he wanted to be a dentist when he grew up. The idea stuck, and today he stands at the helm of Coastal Dental Arts. True to its name, the practice has elevated dentistry to a near art form, lavishing patients with accoutrements such as flat-screen TVs and wireless headphones, and dentists set to work on teeth with high-tech tools. The practice uses Lava Chairside Oral Scanners to create 3-D mouth impressions, Invisalign orthodontics to straighten teeth sans metal brackets, and the Zoom! Teeth-whitening system to brighten smiles. Coastal Dental Arts prides itself on safety, which is why the practice is committed to following CAL-OSHA standards.
Working alongside Dr. Dave is Dr. Frank Mac, a member of the United States Navy Dental Corps. Although now stationed at Coastal Dental Arts, he still actively serves the Corps, tending to his duties as a staff oral surgeon at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot and traveling to the aid of any submarine that needs its teeth fixed.
