​Meet Our Dentist
Dr. Daniel E. Stragier

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 Clairemont 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 resident of Ocean Beach, Dr. Stragier spends his spare time hiking, riding motorcycles, sailing, scuba diving, gardening, and taking his rescue dogs to the dog beach.

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. We offer two types of dental sedation at our San Diego dental office:

  • 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.

A State-of-the-Art Dental Facility Better Care Through
Advanced Dental 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:
3D Cone Beam Radiography Scanner

3D Cone Beam Radiography

Balboa Dental Care uses cone beam computed tomography to produce detailed 3D 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 complex treatments such as dental implant placement so you can enjoy the best possible results.

Digital X-Rays

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

Dental Lasers

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

Dr Stragier is the absolute best. He is gentle, honest, experienced, and he KNOWS his stuff. After 10 years of great care, I tried a dentist closer to my home, but I came back, because Dr Stragier is worth the drive. His staff is also amazing. I’d give them 10 stars if I could!
