Dr. Ness' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ness "Dr. Ness originally had his eyes set on becoming a medical doctor – but then something happened. He got braces. After experiencing dentistry from an orthodontic patient's point of view, he shifted his mindset to pursue dentistry and a specialization in orthodontics. After receiving his undergraduate degree from La Sierra University, he studied dentistry at Loma Linda University. Dr. Ness went on to study orthodontics and graduated from his specialty program in 1989. He has taken several hundred hours of continuing education since then, focusing on progressive orthodontics and dental implants. His artistic personality compliments his skills as a dentist, as well as pastimes like painting and singing! He has actively been involved with the Give Back a Smile program. This charity provides cosmetic and rehabilitative care to adults that have experienced dental injuries caused by domestic violence."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ness "Our certified doctors offer in-house sedation dentistry. Nap through your procedure and enjoy the most relaxing experience possible. Sedation is great for smile makeovers, oral surgery, and even children.

To fit the needs of your busy lifestyle, we offer flexible appointment times. Our office is also open each Saturday. Since we are a multi-doctor facility, we can fit your family in when it's most convenient.

Because our specialists work together, we share overhead expenses and equipment. That means you can have access to the care you deserve, at the right cost."
