From your very first visit, you will notice that the listening skills and the attention to detail of Dr. Katee Afshar and her team set them apart from other dentists. Our team’s genuine concern for our patient’s health and value of keeping open communication allow for each of our patients to actively determine their own course of affordable dental treatment.
During your initial visit at Coronado Smiles Dental, we will perform a comprehensive examination.

At Coronado Smiles Dental we pride ourselves on giving each of our patients their own personalized plan for treatment instead of a basic plan of treatment for everyone because we know every individual is unique and has their own set of needs. Sometimes a simple discussion on the proper routine and frequency of oral home care and which products to use are all our patient needs. Other times a plan of action to attain dental wellness is determined after a more extensive review of a patient’s medical health, medications, diet and certain lifestyle habits which may be contributing factors to dental, gum, and bone disease. Our quality of care will not be compromised for any reason, we assure you that you will be confident, informed, and comfortable with the care you receive at our office, every step of the way.
