Welcome to Bell Family Dentistry, Carlsbad’s Dentists

We are a true family practice, a father and son team, combining the latest techniques with the experience of having served our patients in Carlsbad for over 35 years. Our two passions are dentistry and Carlsbad, and while our Carlsbad dental office has grown through the years, we continue to strive to maintain the comfortable, patient-centered, practice where every patient is a friend. Our dental patients are more than just a smile to us; they are our friends and family. When you enter our Carlsbad dental office, much of the time you will hear an unusual sound for a dental office: laughter. While we take seriously our commitment to providing you with the highest quality dentistry, we also understand the importance of laughter and creating a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere for our patients. We will take care of your teeth, providing you with quality, gentle care, whether you need a simple cleaning, teeth whitening or periodontal treatment, or complex, cosmetic crowns, veneers, bridges and implant restorations. We will explain your needs and options and provide the personalized care that you want, ensuring that you are happy with your decision to choose us as your dental office.

We welcome new patients at this time. Read what some of our patients have to say about our Carlsbad dental practice and our over 2000 certified patient reviews.

We are in this Covid thing together

Difficult times like these test our patience, character and faith in everything. As always our focus is to provide you with safe, quality, professional dental care. Over the years we have become like family, we are here to help. We are all in this together, and although we anticipate some difficult times ahead, we have been through crises before: inflation in the 80’s, the crash of “89, 2008 recession, SARS, and H1N1. Perhaps this seems worse at this time, but as with every other crisis, we can and will work together to help each other survive.

We realize the inconvenience of canceled appointments and the resulting potential for increased dental problems. The ADA, CDA and CDC have urged us to suspend all non-essential procedures and to only provide emergency care at this time. As soon as we are able, we will open the office to provide you the care you need. If you have a problem or question please call us at 760-729-8500 so we can help you determine the best course of treatment. Also, this will enable us to contact you as soon as we can begin seeing patients. Thank you for your patience, your forgiveness and your understanding.

With regards to the economy, no one knows what is going to happen economically; we are in uncharted waters. We want you to know that we are here to help you afford needed dental treatment in any way we can. Our financial policy has always been, “ You trust us to fix your teeth, and we trust you to pay us when you can.” Please do not allow any economic concerns to jeopardize your dental health. We are all in this together. We are here for you. Stay healthy.
