We understand that fitting in dental appointments can be difficult with today’s busy schedules, so we strive to make your experience pleasant and stress-free. We want our patients to look forward to a relaxing time in the dental chair!
To further help with busy schedules, we offer a full menu of dentistry services for your entire family under one roof, including:

- Fluoride and sealants
- Root canal therapy
- Gum disease treatment
- Crowns and bridges
- Dentures and partials
- Cosmetic dentistry
We take pride in the fact that our one-doctor practice is on the smaller side. This gives us the opportunity to really get to know our patients and their families personally. We believe that familiar faces and surroundings help lessen dental anxiety, meaning our patients are more apt to get the care they need to keep their mouths healthy.
Although our practice might have a slower pace on a day-to-day basis, this does not mean we are not up to the minute on the latest in dental technology. Not only does high-tech dentistry mean less time in the dentist chair for our patients, but it also means treatment is much more comfortable. Dr. Silva incorporates laser dentistry, digital x-rays, and an intraoral camera to provide top-quality patient care.
Our mission is simply to provide quality dentistry in a comfortable environment to better the health of our patients—and we work hard to make this happen. Call us for your entire family’s dental needs. We look forward to meeting you!
Dr. Sandi Silva, DDS
Dr. Sandi Silva is a native of Southern California. She grew up in Westminster, attended the University of Southern California ,and received her undergraduate degree in biological sciences.
As an undergraduate student, she was offered a job in a dental office that led to a dental assisting position—which ultimately changed her career path. At the time, a future in dentistry was not in her plans. But after working closely with the dentist, she found she enjoyed helping patients with their smiles and taking care of their dental conditions. Consequently, she returned to USC, where she earned her DDS.
One of the things Dr. Silva enjoys about her job is getting to know new people and finding out about their lives. She also loves working with her hands, crediting her days as a child tinkering in the garage with her father as the basis for this ability. Dentistry allows Dr. Silva to not only work with her hands but to think of different ways to tackle different situations to get the desired result. As she puts it, “Dentistry allows me to do everything I enjoy!”
Dr. Silva's primary objective is to help her patients maintain their teeth for life. Her view is that oral health is important to overall health and quality of life, including being able to enjoy favorite foods every single day.
In her free time, Dr. Silva enjoys her time with her family. Her husband, Charlie, is also a dentist who has a practice in the city of Orange. She also has two teenaged children, two German Shepherds adopted from a local rescue, and one cat. Other interests include travel, reading, poker, and USC Football (Fight On!).
