Meet Dr. Collado
A job in the dental field has been a lifelong goal for Dr. Collado. He decided as an 8th grader that his path would lead him to dental school. Patients are more than just a name and face to Dr. Collado – they’re an extension of his family.
There’s nothing more important than providing insight into their oral health needs and contributing to their ongoing care to create a lifetime of healthy smiles.
He has been practicing dentistry for 30 years, and was a Navy dentist before starting his own practice here in Carmel Mountain Ranch 26 years ago. Dr. Collado loves keeping up with the latest technology, materials and equipment to provide the best care possible. He really enjoys watching the families served grow and evolve, and considers it a privilege when some of them have married and bring their own children in for care! He and his wife live in Point Loma, and have three grown children.

Meet Dr. Carpenter
For Dr. Carpenter, dentistry is a family business. Growing up with his dentist father, he knew from a young age that he wanted to follow in his dad’s footsteps. To him, dental care is an art form, and hand-crafting beautiful smiles provides the perfect blend of art and science. There is nothing more rewarding for Dr. Carpenter than improving a patient’s confidence and getting them out of pain.
He and his wife have four young kids, and he’s passionate about getting children excited about the dentist – and helping them form good dental habits early on. Questions or concerns? He’s here to listen!
