Dr. Nicholas Dovey

Hello, I’m Dr. Nicholas Dovey.  I love practicing evidence-based dentistry and enjoy keeping up on research, advancements in materials, and best practices to provide the best patient care possible. Among the awards conferred to me, I’m most proud of being inducted into OKU, the national honor society for dentistry.  I’ve continually taken advanced education, and believe patients deserve nothing but the best.  

I enjoy the day to day variety of general dentistry, as every person is different. I’ve loved serving patients aged 1 to 92 and am well versed in many aspects of dentistry. I feel the greatest reward of this profession is empowering my patients with the tools they need to transform not only their oral health but also their overall well-being. I also enjoy the rewards of giving back through volunteering at dental health fairs throughout the state.

On a personal note, I’ve lived in southern California my entire life, but just recently moved to Encinitas from Fullerton to be closer to family.  So far, I love San Diego and all it offers, and am thrilled to be a part of this community.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two adorable daughters, going on outdoor adventures, trying not to crash my drones, learning how to use my 3D printer, and big mountain snowboarding.

Thank you for taking the time to do some research on your potential healthcare providers. I understand how important it is to feel comfortable with your dentist and if there is ever anything you want to know, just ask!  I hope to build lifelong relationships with great patients and I hope to serve you soon!
