In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have chosen to close the office for all non elective procedures. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Dental Association (ADA) and California Dental Association (CDA) have recommended that we see patients on an emergency basis only. 

 We do plan on reopening as soon as possible, however an exact date cannot be given at this time. As always, we are here for our patients and Dr. Ortega is available to see patients on an emergency basis only. We can still be reached at any time by calling our office and following the prompts at (831) 475-2313. 

Thank you,
