Dan has been my dentist for about 15 years. Never an upsell…never pressure to get something I don’t need. His hygienist is so gentle, I can almost fall asleep in the chair. The whole staff is professional and friendly. I confidently refer family and friends to Dan. I’ve been 100 percent pleased every visit.

​Meet Our Dentist

Daniel E. Stragier, DDS, is a graduate of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, and he has been a practicing dentist in San Diego since 1985. Dr. Stragier is an active member of the San Diego Implant Study Club and the Academy of General Dentistry. To ensure you receive the best treatment during your visit to our San Diego dental office, Dr. Stragier treats every patient at Balboa Dental Care personally.

Dr. Stragier can perform most procedures including dental implant placement without referrals or the help of outside specialists. If you have a complex surgical, periodontal, or orthodontic case that Dr. Stragier cannot treat himself, he will coordinate your treatment with one of his trusted colleagues in San Diego.

A State-of-the-Art Facility Better Care Through Advanced Technology

Our San Diego office meets and surpasses all OSHA and CDC standards. To provide you and your family with the best possible care, we're always looking for ways to incorporate the latest technology, including:
Dental software

3-D Cone Beam Radiography

At Balboa Dental Care, Dr. Stragier uses cone beam computed tomography to produce detailed 3-D images of your teeth, nerves, and bone structure so that he can pinpoint issues that may not appear on a two-dimensional x-ray. This allows him to better plan our complex treatments such as dental implant placement so that you can enjoy the best possible results.

X-ray of teeth

Digital X-Rays

Our practice uses digital x-rays as a starting point for diagnosing any outstanding dental issues that are developing below the surface of your smile. Benefits compared to traditional x-rays include almost instantaneous imaging, 80 percent less radiation exposure, and the ability to enhance and magnify x-rays in real-time.

Dental laser

Dental Lasers

Laser dentistry allows Dr. Stragier to effectively treat a range of conditions with fewer side effects and less recovery time. Lasers can address mild to moderate gum disease, eliminate a gummy smile with gum contouring, and can even be used to brighten stained or discolored teeth. Since lasers both sterilize and cauterize, patients can enjoy minimized bleeding and a lower risk of infection post-treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Transform the Appearance of Your Smile

If stained, cracked, crooked, or gapped teeth cause you to hide when it's time for a picture with friends, family, or colleagues, cosmetic dentistry can give you something to smile about. During your next visit to Balboa Dental Care, Dr. Stragier can review your case and discuss your options so that you can choose the best treatment plan to meet your individual needs and budget. Popular cosmetic  procedures performed at our San Diego dental practice include:

Dislike Going to the Dentist? We Offer Sedation Dentistry 

Is a fear of the dentist preventing you from getting the dental care you need? Sedation dentistry can help you overcome your dental anxiety so that you can keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime. At our San Diego dental office, we offer two types of dental sedation: 

  • Nitrous oxide: Nitrous oxide (more commonly known as laughing gas) is a mild form of sedation that offers a rapid onset, wears off quickly, and has virtually no side effects. 
  • Oral sedation: We can also administer medication to help you relax during your appointment. If you choose oral sedation, you will need a friend or loved one to drive you home.

If there is anything that our San Diego team can do to further ensure your comfort, please do not hesitate to ask. 

We Treat Our Patients Like Members of Our Own Family
