Are you looking to work for a practice that offers stability and operates with integrity? Would you like to work for a dentist with an excellent reputation in the community and among dental peers?
Look no further. Coast Dental & Orthodontics follows COVID-19 CDC Guidelines and ADA recommendations and makes every effort to create and maintain an environment that is safe for our team and patients. We provide PPE that includes high volume evacuation devices for intraoral use, face shields, N95 masks, along with gowns, hair bouffant, feet/shoe coverings and gloves.

Who is Coast Dental?
We are a family established, owned, and operated DSO (that means dental service organization if you were curious), so we aren't your typical cookie cutter dental corporation. At Coast Dental, you are part of a family, the kind you don't want to rush away from after a long Thanksgiving dinner.
We can tell you why we're great, but our long-standing team members are the real testament. Why do they stay? Because we invest in them and their continuing education and personal growth. And, because we like to have fun while working hard in a respectful environment.
