Family-Focused Care

Carmel Mountain Dental Care Helps Patients Achieve Their Healthiest Dental Lifestyle

At Carmel Mountain Dental Care (CMDC), patients can expect to be treated like extended family. “Our relationships with our patients are built on trust and integrity. We take time to listen and hear the concerns of our patients. Our transparency with costs and explaining treatment recommendations helps patients make informed decisions,” stated Dr. H. Jonathan Lee, dentist and owner of the CMDC practice. For more than 10 years, CMDC has served the Rancho Peñasquitos, Carmel Mountain Ranch, 4S Ranch, Poway, Rancho Bernardo, and Sabre Springs communities. The practice provides general dentistry for all ages, as well as cosmetic dentistry, truly making it a family practice. They also offer Invisalign and endodontic treatment, such as root canals, with specialist Dr. Andy Park. Dr. Marie Moeckel and Dr. Michael Saade are also dentists on staff at CMDC, providing restorative and cosmetic dental care.

When patients step through the door at CMDC, they are warmly greeted by the front desk staff. A beverage station is available with coffee, tea, water, and juice boxes for children. All treatment rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art dental technology, as well as TVs and iPads. “Our overall aim is for our patients to know they can depend on us because we have earned their trust,” said Dr. Lee.

“Our relationships with our patients are built on trust and integrity. We take time to listen and hear the concerns of our patients.”

According to Dr. Lee, he and his staff understand the frustrations and complexities of dental insurance and are willing to go the extra mile to check insurance benefits ahead of time so that patients are fully aware of costs before treatment. “Finances should not be the main reason anyone with pain or discomfort avoids dental care. Avoiding the dentist will eventually become more costly as issues will only get worse over time if they go untreated. Those without insurance can still get dental care through the Quality Dental Plan (QDP), our in-office dental savings plan,” explained Dr. Lee. For an annual fee, QDP includes two preventative care visits and a discount on any additional treatment. As stated by Dr. Lee, additional family members can be added to the plan for a reduced fee.

Dr. Lee and his team are also committed to supporting the local community and partner with local elementary school educational foundations and PTAs. CMDC also gives back by sponsoring the Rancho Peñasquitos and 4S Ranch Little Leagues, offering a Halloween Candy Buy Back program, and supporting organizations such as the San Diego Food Bank and Toys for Tots.
