Our Office

Welcome to The Shores Dental in La Jolla. Our dentists bring over 3 decades of experience and service to the community. Our La Jolla Office was established in January 2014, where we have proudly created trusted relationships with our local patients, colleagues, and patients from the surrounding community.

Our goal is to make your visits as comfortable as possible. Our state-of-the-art facilities are integrated with the most technologically advanced equipment, such as digital radiography (which reduces the amount of radiation by up to 90%) and intra-oral cameras. Your oral care and safety is one of our primary concerns.

For those who fear dental procedures, we offer personalized care and comfort with the ability to listen to music with individual headphones while receiving dental care. We do offer options to ease your dental anxiety such as oral sedation to make your visit a more pleasant experience.

Dr. Alwan chose to maintain a private practice rather than an in-and-out franchise model because he believes in fewer but long-term patients where he can be your consultant, your physician and your friend. He is extremely keen on communicating the process and procedures that best fit your needs and your circumstances. Every patient is unique and we hope to be your long-term provider and a part of your family. Our specialists have mastered the art of dentistry by combining functionality and a keen set of eyes for esthetics.

Whether you are looking to improve your smile and get noticeable results or you just need routine cleanings or check-ups, you can trust The Shores Dental; where knowledge, technology, and a caring environment is here to help you achieve your oral health goals.

Our Philosophy

The Shores Dental is committed to providing quality dental care to you and your entire family while building a practice which allows us to provide care in a comfortable and pleasant setting. Our goal is to treat each patient with dignity, respect, kindness and courtesy. We do not “work” on our patients, but work in conjunction with them to reach their optimal oral health and let them know they are a valued part of our practice and our family.
The primary emphasis of this dental practice is the prevention of dental disease. To this end, the dentists and staff will work diligently and closely with each patient to restore good oral health and prevent the recurrence of disease. Our well trained dentists will work to improve and maintain your dental health.
