Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Carson "We are a true family dental practice (Cosmetic, Implant, General & Sleep Sedation Dentistry) that cater to those patients who may be dental phobics and/or need the gentle care they have been looking for.  We are a comprehensive Full Service dental office that uses Digital Xrays, Dental Cat Scan for Implants, Cerec 1 visit Dental Cad Cam crowns and all other dental procedures. It is very common for us to put some of our patients to sleep and do all their work in one visit whether it be a root canal, extractions, restorative crowns/filling or that dream smile with veneers you are looking for.  We enjoy doing Emergency care and getting our patients out of discomfort pain-free and taking care of all our patients needs.  Dr. Carson takes pride in being a 2nd generation dentist and grew up here in Camarillo/Oxnard area as a student athlete in tennis and football.  Dr. Carson believes that when you do treatment on patients you ask yourself if you would do the same to your child or parents."
