Dr. Stragier is one of the most honest, understanding dentists that I've ever met! He listens to your concerns and only recommends services that he believes will truly benefit you. He is really easygoing and personable. Even if it's been years since you've been to the dentist, Dr. Stragier will treat you without judgment and without making you feel guilty. Also, Pam and the rest of the staff are super sweet and communicative! Thanks for squeezing me in early before work!

I was a patient or 25+ years.  Then moved to another state, had a MAJOR procedure prescribed by my new provider and was very nervous about the whole thing.  Dr. Stragier graciously agreed to review my x-rays and gave me comfort with his 2nd opinion...which happened to concur with the provider. I was VERY happy to return back to CA and resume care with Dr. Stragier. They all make my quarterly visits enjoyable.

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.
