PaulDr. Gonzalez

Dr. David Gonzalez attended Marquette University School of Dentistry, graduating in 1990. His passion is to help people feel good about their smiles and to help them overcome their fear of the dentist. He loves to make his patient’s experience as painless as possible. He became a dentist here in San Diego after visiting and loving the weather, the scenery, the food and the people. One fun fact about him is that he loves to restore Japanese cars to place them in shows and he loves horses and dogs.
