What patients are saying

Welcome to Clairemont Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics

At Clairemont Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics, we care about a whole lot more than your smile. Yes, we will help you achieve a pearly white, beautiful smile, but what's most important is what you can't see. Did you know serious medical issues can be prevented by addressing inflammation and other oral health issues? We call this the Mouth-Body Connection, and our friendly clinicians will tell you all about it! Our office is on the corner of Balboa and Genesee, in the Balboa Mesa Shopping Center, next to CVS. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please call! This includes any pain, swelling, or infections. We will come in early, stay late, or work weekends to prevent you from having to go to the emergency room. For all other appointments, give our online scheduler a try. The smile of your dreams is only a few clicks away. Our teledentistry service is a great option if you are pressed for time but need to meet with your dentist. It's easier to find the time with teledentistry. Your dentist will let you know whether you need to visit a health care provider. Be sure to inquire into our discount plan if you do not have dental insurance. We cannot express how thankful we are for referrals from patients like you. Call today and let us show you what the Perfect Patient Experience is all about.
