Welcome to Our Practice


With dentists voted “Best Neighborhood Dentist” by the La Mesa community and “Top Dentist” by San Diego Magazine, we back our business model of honesty, ethics, and passion with quality dentistry.

We are a family practice where the needs of our patients always come first. This means that we provide an unmatched, personalized service with every appointment, listen to our patients, make sure they understand all the options of their treatment, never force unnecessary procedures upon them, and are patient with any anxiety. We really love people and helping them as healthcare professionals. We have fun doing what we do, and that makes all the difference!

Our patients choose us for our 75 years of combined experience, for our well-established reputation in the La Mesa community, and for our glowing reviews on Yelp, Rate a Dentist, and Angie’s List. They stay for the service. If we can’t help you, we will refer you to someone who can. We maintain excellent collaborative relationships with the best specialists in San Diego.

Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Rob Low
    DDS
    Doctor

    Dr. Low was raised as the oldest of five children in Pomona. He graduated from UCLA in 1980 with a degree in Biochemistry and completed his DDS at USC in 1984.

    After graduation, he practiced in Westwood next to the UCLA campus for 12 years. There, he was a member of the Ethics Committee for the Dental Society and volunteered weekly at a home for wayward children. In 1998 he moved down to San Diego and joined La Mesa Dental.

    In 2013 and 2014 Dr. Low was voted “Best Neighborhood Dentist” by the readers of the “La Mesa Courier” newspaper. He has also been chosen by his peers as a San Diego “Top Dentist” every year since 2012.

    Dr. Low is married to Nancy and has three children, Blakely, Marisa, and Nick. His hobbies include playing the piano, volleyball, tennis, and gardening, but not, as some might think, stand-up comedy.

  • Root Canal Treatment

    Every tooth has two sections: a crown, the visible part of the tooth above the gum line, and one or more roots, which anchor the teeth within the jaw.

  • Fillings

    The bacteria in plaque produce acids that erode tooth enamel, eventually creating a hole, or cavity, in the tooth surface. Left untreated, this decay can spread to the interior of the tooth, and might lead to the need for a crown, a root canal, or even extraction. When caught early, your dentist can ...
