Hi Super Friends,
The Super Dentists are here for you as we all adapt to our new normal for the next few weeks. Keeping our kids safe and happy while worrying about family, friends, jobs, bills, and so much else is a tall order. We want to help by reinventing & transforming your family’s at-home dental experience until we see you again.
Accessing Dental Care During COVID-19
Click here to learn what the American Dental Association considers a dental emergency. We can see emergency patients at our Kearny Mesa location ONLY (9737 Aero Drive, San Diego, CA 92123). Do not visit the emergency room for your child’s dental emergency, please call us.
DAYTIME EMERGENCY (9 AM – 3 PM)
CALL (619), (858) or (760) 336-8478
AFTER HOURS EMERGENCY
CALL (619) 851-4704 or (619) 621-3916
Following guidance by the California Dental Association, we’ve temporarily cancelled elective dental procedures to:
- Keep our patients, crew members and doctors safe.
- Use less masks, gloves and other supplies health care workers desperately need.
- Free up emergency rooms so hospitals can focus on patients with serious health issues related to coronavirus.
Your Super Kid Morning Checklist
Many daily routines have been disrupted by COVID-19, but your child’s oral health care routine shouldn’t be one of them. Having your children brush two times a day for two minutes a day and floss at least once a day can keep dental issues at bay until normal dental visits resume.
Having your SUPER kids get up at their regular time, eat breakfast, brush their teeth and otherwise keep regular routines can make life feel more normal. Download our handy checklist to help keep your child organized.

They’re home, you’re home, you’ve got a lot to deal with right now. Our blog has some great tips to make brushing fun for kids.

Update: March 19th, 2020
To our super patients and families:
We are all in uncharted territory as the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread throughout our communities, country and the world. Since the beginning of our practice some 24 years ago, we’ve made all of our decisions by placing the safety and health of your children, families, our crew members and doctors, first.
To that end, and after careful consideration and following CDA’s (California Dental Association) strong recommendation, we’ve made the difficult (but necessary) decision to temporarily suspend nonessential or non-urgent dental care for the next 2 weeks.
As expected, we will be available for emergency care and services only. We will contact you to reschedule exams and cleanings.
If you or your child has a true dental emergency, you can be seen and treated at our Kearny Mesa office ONLY (9737 Aero Dr. Suite 210, San Diego, CA 92123).
Visit @TheSuperDentists on Facebook for the latest information.
Thank you for being part of our super family for all these years, and thank you for your understanding and patience. We wish you a healthy journey during these uncertain times and look forward to inviting you back to our offices as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, please call us at (619/760/858) DENTIST (336-8478).

Dear Super friends,
Making sure our super patients and crew are safe is our top priority.
While the risk of getting COVID-19 in the U.S. is currently low, we know many patients are concerned about the spread of Coronavirus.
Protocols we already practice as healthcare professionals are some of the best ways to prevent transmission of the virus.The Super Dentists is in regular contact with medical leaders in the community to stay up to date on the latest information and best practices.
Keep yourself safe
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
If you’ve recently traveled outside of the U.S., or have had close contact with someone who has or if you have a fever, cough or other symptoms of acute respiratory distress, please call our office to reschedule your visit. Many of our patients are children and have unique risks if they are exposed to COVID-19.
Thank you for helping us to protect all of our patients.
