Dear Patients,


In light of the evolving pandemic and strong suggestions by public health officials, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our practice until further notice.  We do not make this decision lightly, however our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community.


If you need emergency dental care, please call our office at (858) 451 2104 as you normally would and you will reach Dr. Barakat. You may also email us at


We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and the guidance from the county, state and the CDC as well as our dental organizations. For now, we will determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours. If you have had appointments scheduled, we will gladly call you and reschedule your visits with us when our practice is open again.


Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind.


Me and my team thank you for your patience during this challenging time, wish all of you and your families good health and we look forward to seeing you soon.



Dr. Zeynep Barakat
