A Fresh Face

Dr. Sarah Winter knows how to light up a room. With her mega-watt smile and shining personality, Dr. Winter is a new face in La Jolla, but well known in reputable circles
for her ability to focus on the smallest details to create natural, beautiful smiles.   

A proud USC Trojan, Dr. Winter earned her doctorate in dental science, then invested three additional years in intensive postdoctoral training to focus on cosmetic dentistry and holistic health. After seeing patients in her father’s Orange County dental practice for 7 years, and working alongside some of the world’s foremost experts in cosmetic dentistry and holistic care, Dr. Winter decided to open her own “smile shop” in the heart of La Jolla.
