Green Practice

Dr. Cathy Santone and Dr. Megan Dietz—our highly skilled dentists—strive to create a relaxing, holistic dental experience in Encinitas, CA. By investing in the latest green dental office technology, such as digital x-rays and mercury free dentistry,  our team here at Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry strive to provide the safest and most effective dental treatment in the most comfortable manner. Another element in the holistic dentistry approach is the removal of mercury or amalgam fillings. At our office, we offer tooth-colored fillings to create a more natural appearance. To protect her patients and team from exposure to mercury as it is removed, Dr. Santone uses a Mercury Vapor Ionizer to help eliminate any residual mercury from her operatory rooms.

In addition, we use Dentrix®, an advanced dental software system to streamline each patient’s experience, while allowing us to progress toward creating the holistic, green dental office that is important to all of us. As a part of the innovative spirit our office embraces, we employ the use of a dental laser, which allows us to perform the most-advanced dental procedures with the utmost respect for our patients’ health and safety.

“At first I thought that, with the introduction of so much computer communication, office interaction might become cold and mechanical. But, no! Still the warm, caring atmosphere and excellent professional service. I’m always comfortable in every respect during my visits”

With the following technologies, as well as our dedication to operating an environmentally-conscious dental office, Dr. Santone and Dr. Dietz can continue to offer quality cosmetic dentistry in North County San Diego:
