About Us
Dr. Janette Larsen D.M.D.

Dr. Janette Larsen believes that dentistry enhances peoples lives and she wants to change how her patients experience dentistry.  She and her team are committed to creating a comfortable dental experience and helping patients achieve the highest level of dental care they desire for themselves.  She has been recognized by San Diego Top Dentists for the last 4 years in a row.

 Passion for Clinical Excellence and Education.   Dr. Larsen is one of 300 dentists nationwide to be selected as Visiting Faculty at the world renowned Spear Education Center in Scottsdale, Arizona.  She travels there to mentor other dentists and learn the latest techniques in order to provide exceptional care to her patients.  Locally she leads a dental study club of 14 other dentists including orthodontists and periodontists.

Experience and Trust.      You can trust Dr. Larsen to have your best interests in mind.  Since 1992, she has been in private practice in San Diego.  After earning her dental degree (D.M.D.) in 1989 from the Oregon Health Sciences University she came to San Diego to serve in the U.S. Navy.  Her three year assignment at the Naval Training Center (now known as Liberty Station) brought a wealth of experience as thousands of new recruits came through the dental center, each bringing unique dental problems and dental histories from all areas of the country.

Since 2000, Dr Larsen has been a sole practitioner in her Point Loma dental office.  Throughout this time, she has built a reputation of exceptional dentistry in a calm and comfortable environment.  Her principle source of new clients is by invitations from other patients.  She and her team consider it the highest compliment when a patient invites their friends and family.

Communication and Customized Approach.     It is important that you, as the patient, feel comfortable to discuss your concerns.  Dr. Larsen and her team will listen to understand those concerns and incorporate them into your unique assessment.  We utilize digital X-ray and photographic technologies to communicate this assessment called the "4 Part Tour".  Dr. Larsen will then present the alternatives and help you understand your options.

Compassion is both the understanding of a problem and the desire to help.     Our office is uniquely designed to provide exceptional dentistry in a calm and comfortable environment.  While you are in treatment, Dr. Larsen and her staff will ensure that you are comfortable by offering satellite television with headphones, blanket or neck pillow.  If temporary crowns are required, you will find that your smile will be indistinguishable from natural teeth.  Dr. Larsen chooses this, not because it is easy, but because she would want the same for her family and friends.  When not tending to her patients or developing the next great dental solution; you may find her around Ocean Beach where she lives with her husband and their two dogs - Sammy and Domino.  She loves this community and spends much of her time walking the beach, sailing in San Diego Bay, and playing the piano.
