Who are we?

YOUR LOCAL PERIODONTIST

We are pleased that you have chosen our office to help with your periodontal needs. We are dedicated to provide state-of-the-art treatment in a comfortable and friendly environment. Dr. Roberts is a certified Periodontist, a specialist trained in care and treatment of the gums and jawbone. This includes dental implant placement, use of multiple dental lasers, and a license to administer IV sedation.

Our experienced team is proud to provide patients with the most esthetic results possible for gum grafting and smile design-aimed at covering ugly, sensitive roots, and balancing an uneven gum line.

We believe that successful periodontal care begins with an informed patient. At our office you will learn the best approach to treat your periodontal needs. You are encouraged to bring your spouse or loved one, ask questions, and share your dental concerns with us. Working as a team with your general dentist, we are committed to improving your overall oral health.

DENTAL PROCEDURES

Our primary goal is to save your natural dentition, but if necessary, we are skilled at preservation of gum and jawbone and painless extraction of teeth.

Periodontal DDS

Read My Bio

I’m Dan Roberts and I love what I do. I am a Southern California native. I began USC dental school before completing college, so at 24 years old, I was one of the youngest students to earn a DDS. I practiced as a general dentist for four years before graduating Oregon Health Science University in Periodontics.

Why I became a periodontist: The faculty at USC invited me to take part in an honors periodontal study group, during my senior year. This perked my interest and motivated me to learn more. As a general dentist, I joined the Western Society of Periodontology. My mentor, Gordon Patterson, encouraged me to apply to a postgraduate periodontal program.

I completed OHSU in 1986 but my education is on going. I am dedicated to bringing my patients the latest proven techniques in Dental implants, periodontal procedures, bone grafting, gum grafting, laser techniques, digital 3-D x-ray, and IV sedation. We are continually adding new material, devices, and techniques to benefit our patients.

I have lived and practiced periodontics exclusively in Encinitas for over 25 years. I like to compare myself to a Labrador. I Love water and I Love people. I have been married to my wife Kathy for over 30 years and have raised two children, Addy and Joseph in the Encinitas School district. Look for me on my surfboard between Swamis and Ponto!

I am a native Southern California Girl and have made Dentistry my career for over 25 Years, recently joining Dr. Roberts Team in early 2015. My career began as a Registered Dental Assistant in 1986 and I quickly transitioned to Office Manager. I discovered early in my career that I enjoyed working closely with the doctor to ensure a successful organized practice, gaining trust of the patients and working each day to ensure the office is an upbeat place to come too. “Let’s face it, coming to the Periodontal Office wouldn’t be anyone’s first choice on a Sunny San Diego Day so let’s make every day at the office as Cheerful as possible!” I understand the importance of fostering positive relationships and clear communication with the Team, Referring Dental Offices and most importantly our patients.

On a personal note I have raised two beautiful daughters whom I’m very proud of. I enjoy watching them grow into their own passions and careers. In my free time, I became a certified Yoga Instructor teaching numerous Yoga classes weekly, and I squeak in a class or two of Land and Aqua Boot Camp. Additional passions include Gardening, Crafting and most recently educating myself on the benefits of Essential Oils. I look forward to continuing my career with Dr. Roberts and the rest of his amazing Team.

I was born and raised in a small town in Kansas where I learned the two most important traits; kindness and courtesy. It’s no secret that I sincerely care about people and their health. In 2007 I started work in a periodontal practice in Lawrence, Kansas and worked there until 2013 when I moved to San Diego with my husband Brad and our two cats Gizmo and Zoey. I absolutely love every aspect of perio and consider myself blessed to work in such an incredible atmosphere. I’m extremely dedicated to my work and I consistently strive to provide the most comfortable experience to each and every patient. In my spare time I like to beach hop with my husband, and watch Kansas City football with my husband, relax with my kitties, and LOVE watching my Kansas Jayhawks basketball.
