“Dentistry runs in our DNA. We understand that continuing to provide our patients with the quality of care that they deserve requires patience, pride in our work, honesty, compassion, communication, and the highest standards of dental work possible” as stated on their website. 

A San Diego native, Dr. Santos graduated from the University of San Diego High School. He then went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at De La Salle Bajío University in the city of Leon, Guanajuato. Upon relocating to the United States, he studied endodontics/endodontology at the UCLA School of Dentistry and completed Progressive Orthodontic Seminars in 2017.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
