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 Fossett has developed the same patient-centered, quality approach to dentistry which has made our practice successful for over 35 years..

Dr. David prides himself on being comfortable with all aspects of general dentistry, and can resolve most patient needs without a referral to a specialist. Dr. Fossett dedicates himself  to advanced training in specialty procedures such as cosmetics, implant placement and restoration, and Invisalign Orthodontics. Our staff are equally dedicated, and we have an exceptional group of hygienists and assistants that are essential to the execution of complex dental treatments and maintaining a warm, comfortable atmosphere.

Not every situation calls for a complex and costly solution. Dr. Fossett takes the time to explore and explain intelligent compromises and we often offer more simple solutions to the same clinical problem. Individual patients preferences vary, and this guides our process of helping the patient make sound treatment decisions.

Dr. David is married to Lauren, who carries on the tradition of helping out with the family practice. They have 2 kids, Alexis & Aiden. Outside the office, Dr. David is a devoted family man who enjoys spending time with his family, friends, and wood working.

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. Dr. Doug recently officially retired, and now spends his free time hiking with friends, volunteering, and playing with his grandchildren.

Dr. Haley Zamer

To offset the recent retirement of Dr. Douglas Fossett, and to meet the needs of an ever growing patient family, we have hired a terrific associate dentist, Dr Haley Zamer.

Dr. Zamer has also been around dentistry most of her life, her father is a dentist, and her husband is a dentist! Dr. Zamer also has a superb academic background and a similar devotion to personalized patient-centered care.  She was born and raised in Long Island, New York, and is a graduate of Columbia University and Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine.  Dr. Zamer is newly married and has been enjoying exploring her new hometown of San Diego in her leisure time

Dr. Douglas Fossett

After many years Dr. Doug Fossett is now officially retired. In his free time he enjoys hiking with friends, volunteering for numerous organizations and spending time with his family. 

Team Work

Dr. Fossett, Dr. Zamer, staff and our referred specialists all work as a team. Exceptional dental care and customer service is the result of a highly qualified, trained, and compassionate team. Every team member is important. Our assistants, hygienists, referring specialists, and associate all work together to meet every patients specific needs.

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.
