Meet The Doctors

Dr. David Fossett

Dr. David Fossett completed his undergraduate education at Brown University and then went on to receive his doctorate of dental surgery from the University of Southern California Dental School.

In addition to attending top universities for his education, David has been fortunate to have his father Dr. Douglas Fossett as a real-world mentor following graduation. Dr. David has developed the same patient-centered, quality approach to dentistry which has made our practice successful for over 35 years.

Dr. David has also taken a particular interest in newer treatments like cosmetic dentistry and implant dentistry; and in general, prides himself on remaining well-read and current on all aspects of general dentistry. He has volunteered at the St. Vincent de Paul Dental Clinic in San Diego, Rotary Society clinics in Mexico, and continues to serve as an active mentor at the Grossmont R.O.P. Dental Assisting School. Dr. David is married to Lauren, they have two young children, and outside the office Dr. David is a devoted family man. 

Dr. David Fossett purchased the practice from Dr. Douglas Fossett in February 2013. Douglas happily remains at the practice, enjoying a well-earned part-time schedule.

For more complicated periodontal and implant surgeries, we have partnered with a seasoned periodontist with over 20 years experience, an excellent chairside manner, and a conservative approach that agrees with our practice philosophy. Our patients can receive this specialty treatment in the comfort of our more familiar office, with improved coordination of treatment staging. These types of treatments involve close coordination between the hygenist and restoring dentist and are best handled in the office. For other speciality treatment needs, we refer out to a variety of other qualified specialists.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us.  If there are any questions you may have about our services, please let us know.  We look forward to helping you in any way we can.

Omg!!! SOOOOO happy I found you!!!
I've had these 4 veneers on my front teeth for about 5 years, put on, again, and again and again, after pop offs and cracks and breaks, and several thousands of dollars, by another Santee dentist's office (won't mention who).
After about 4 years of miraculously no problems, I felt a familiar crunch while biting into a fish taco... I was so upset, I just froze staring at this tiny piece of porcelain in my hand. The tears starting welling up as I was reminded of the nightmares I often have of this exact thing happening on a date, or during a job interview... I knew I wouldn't be able to enjoy the rest of my mom's birthday lunch w my daughters, and luckily, I decided to drive myself. I held back the tears, apologized and asked that they wrap up the rest of my meal and I'll see you at home, and ran to my car, wanting to just vomit.... I'm not too vain, am I?
Not just for vanities sake, but the thought of coming up with another 2 grand to fix this, again, was taunting me! My head was spinning. I felt like I had been kicked in the jaw - literally.
First thing I did, after having a few glasses of wine to calm down, was do a search on Yelp. Dr. Fossett was the first to come up -- but still wanted to give my old office a chance, seeing as especially how They WERE THE ONES WHO PUT THE ORIGINALS ON. But, they offered no rest for my weary soul -- no discounts, no deals and no financing. And a replacement will cost @2000!!
I called Dr. Fossetts office next and was enchanted by Robyn, who understood my plight and offered all the help she could; gave me a rough estimate on cost (final cost was LESS than what she quoted!), and applied for Care Credit for me over the phone.
I could go on and on about how my appointment went -- didn't even have to sit or wait, was brought back for a consultation immediately. Not expecting to have everything even started the same day, the assistant and Dr. Dave came back in two minutes and said, let's get started!
Not more than 30 minutes later, I looked in the mirror to the most gorgeous "Temporary" veneer I have ever seen!! I mean, I'd be happy w this for years! The last office would spackle on this horrible looking crap that had no esthetically pleasing value at all!! THIS is a premier job!
And I'm a chronic perfectionist! Especially when it comes to my looks (hair, teeth, ect).
Thank you Dr. Fossett and staff-- THANK YOU!!!

Yesterday was my first visit to this wonderful Dental office. I haven't felt more welcome and comfortable in a Dental facility since I was 19... Now 31 years young. I grew up, going to a father/son dental group and Dr. David and Dr. Douglas Fossett had the same family centered vibe and conservative but smart dental care I've been searching for! As a Registered Nurse, quality care and patient centered care is the core of my own practice. Dr. David and Dr. Douglas exemplify this to a tee! I've finally found my go to family Dental office. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders after getting a second option from these very well informed Dentists!

Great office!!! From the moment I walked in I felt very welcomed by the staff. I'm always nervous when going to the dentist no matter how many times I go, however after my visit to Dr. Fossett's office I felt much more relaxed and at ease. They did everything they could to make me comfortable. I felt the staff was very knowledgeable and answered any questions I had. The assistants are top notch . The smiles , kind hearts and exceptional service will keep me coming back. Thank you to the office for a positive experience.
