Gentle Dentistry

Dental health is a key factor in overall health.  To maintain a proper healthy body, it is essential to maintain healthy teeth and gums.  Your teeth and gums are a vital part of your body, and if their health is neglected, it affects your entire body.

Establishing a relationship with a dentist you trust and makes you feel comfortable is extremely important.

There are a number of specializations in the field of dentistry.  General dentistry is the combination of all these fields.  It has a number of branches such as oral surgery, periodontics, orthodontics and pediatric dentistry.  Some of our responsibilities include identifying the various diseases and conditions that affect the teeth and gums, creating and managing dental treatment plans, and leading the entire dental team which consists of other professionals such as assistants, technicians, diagnosticians and hygienists to name a few.

The majority of dental treatments we carry out are to prevent or treat the two most common oral diseases, which are dental caries (tooth decay), and periodontal disease (gum disease or pyorrhea).  Common treatments involve the restoration of teeth as a treatment for dental caries (fillings), extraction or surgical removal of teeth, which cannot be restored, scaling of teeth to treat periodontal problems and endodontic root canal treatment to treat abscessed teeth.

Many developments have been made in the field of general dentistry.  To provide you the best treatment outcome, we incorporate the newest technologies such as soft tissue lasers, air abrasion, and computer aided design/manufacturing of dental restorations.  Not only do these technologies make your visit more efficient and effective, they also minimize the pain and discomfort patients often experience with traditional methods.

Our gentle approach and concern for your well-being is at the heart of our dental services.  We offer financing as well as an experienced insurance interface to ensure you receive the services you need.  Please do not delay your dental care, as the problems and costs will only increase with time. Instead, address them as soon as possible and you will be rewarded with teeth that can last a lifetime.  We can help you overcome any care or financial concerns with a complimentary consultation by calling Dr. Ybee at 619-298-0821.


Dr. Evelyn Ascough – she’s in Hillcrest! I love her. She’s such a doll, and she loves her craft. I’m very particular about my teeth, and I trust being put in Dr. Ascough’s hands. I can’t say enough good things about her.
