Torrey Del Mar Dentistry
Our office manager, hygienists and registered dental assistants all share the belief that our care should be comprehensive, courteous and responsive to all our patients individual needs and preferences. In addition, we have Dr. Faisal A. Suleiman - our general dentist, Dr. Jack A. Rosenson - Temporomandibular Joint/Myofascial Pain Disorders, Dr. David Richards- periodontist, Dr. Mark Karpman- endodontist, Dr. Richard Penman, II- pediatric dentist, and Dr. Anke Beyer-Jordan- specializing in orthodontic treatment on staff to offer our patients the very best in comprehensive dental care and specialty care. The immediate benefit of having specialists on staff is that it allows our treatment to be performed in one office, thereby avoiding the inconvenience of needing to travel to other dental offices for continued care.
By working with all dental specialties in one office, our patients also have the the benefit of having second opinions with more than one doctor, together with a team management approach to treatment, when needed.
This approach, together with state-of-the-art technology, allows us to offer the opportunity to educate our patients on all their options for dental treatment while allowing our office to provide optimal care.
