Dental care is a vital aspect of overall healthcare. Teaching this to children will promote a lifetime of healthy smiles. At Fine Dentistry, we provide children and parents with the services they need to achieve optimal oral health.
Our dentist, Dr. Sabine Purps, is a compassionate and gentle provider. She works well with children, and aims to create positive associations with dentistry for her young patients. She does so by earning their trust with gentle care, and easing their anxieties by maintaining a comfortable office environment.
Some of our child-specific services include, but are not limited to:
All teeth, even baby teeth, are important indicators of health and hygiene. Our goal is to establish good habits, and preserve the health of baby teeth. We see children as young as one year of age; as soon as the first tooth erupts, your child can benefit from dental care.
Baby teeth are placeholders for adult teeth. Thus, healthy baby teeth establish an optimal oral environment for permanent adult teeth. It’s best to allow the primary teeth to run their course, in good health, as biologically intended. We invite you to utilize our cleaning and preventive services to empower your child’s smile.
Early preventive care can detect and predict alignment issues before they become severe. We offer orthodontic services intended to subvert a moderate to severe orthodontic complication. Phase 1 orthodontic care, also known as early interceptive treatment, helps the permanent teeth erupt with adequate spacing and ensures the jaw will develop in proper alignment. Dr. Purps with conduct a comprehensive examination, along with x-rays, to determine if your child needs this service.
Fine Dentistry is a technologically advanced, ecologically responsible dental facility. You can rest assured that your children are not facing any harmful substances in our Old Town San Diego dental office.
We use only biocompatible dental materials, and never use mercury-based amalgam fillings. Our x-rays use minimal radiation. We ensure water purity by using a closed water system, and our air is cleansed with an odor-free ozonizer to remove toxins. Lastly, no lead paint was utilized in the decoration of our dental office.
Dr. Purps is unique in her commitment to a holistic approach; to the benefit of her patients.

We have nutritionists and wellness coordinators on staff to fortify parents and expectant mothers with oral healthcare knowledge.
