239 F Street, Chula Vista, CA 91910

Welcome to Sam J. Halabo, DMD; Trust our dentist and our office as your “one-stop” for top dental care!

There are more than 1,600 dentists in our corner of San Diego County, California. However, there is no other dentist in Chula Vista and beyond quite like our Dr. Sam Halabo.

In fact, it is one thing to excel at cosmetic, restorative, Implant, and orthodontic dental care. It is quite another to be so adept at these branches of dentistry as to be sought after as an authority by peers in the field. Dr. Sam is just that; other dentists from around the globe and across the country have requested his insights. In turn, Dr. Sam regularly educates other dental professionals on cutting-edge techniques and technologies and how to get optimal results for their patients.

His track record and skill led to Dr. Halabo being named among the “World’s Top 100 Doctors in Dentistry” by Global Summits Institute, the pre-eminent peer-to-peer organisation designed to recognize doctors, dentists, and specialists who have demonstrated exceptional clinical aptitude, innovation, research, and leadership. 

These qualities, coupled with an array of comprehensive skills are available under the roof of Sam J. Halabo, DMD, offering peace of mind to our patients in Chula Vista, East Lake, Bonita, Rancho Del Ray, Otay Ranch, and greater San Diego County! 

Your “one-stop” for top dental care

Dr. Halabo has everything that you need! Our advanced diagnostics and therapies evolve alongside you and your family. Children don’t “age out” of our services. And likewise, as patients age and their needs grow, Dr. Sam excels at handling even the most complex cosmetic and rehabilitative cases. 

Depending on your needs, preferences, and other factors that add up to your “one-of-a-kind” smile and self, Dr. Sam may recommend one service or a combination of the following advanced offerings:

  • Professional “power” whitening that works to lighten teeth (by up to eight shades in just one treatment 
  • Conservative, one-visit composite dental bonding to cover up stubborn discoloration, gaps, poorly shaped, and otherwise “cosmetically imperfect” teeth
  • Durable, conservative and natural-looking porcelain veneers for reshaping, resizing, and other improvements to the teeth
  • Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement to rebuild one tooth, several teeth, or a mouthful of teeth with implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures (we handle every step in the process, from surgical placement to restoration)
  • Oral appliance therapy for sleep-disordered breathing, such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, as well as for bruxism (teeth grinding) and symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJDs)
  • Stunning and convenient “same-day dentistry” with CEREC computer-aided software and equipment – we make crowns in-house, without the wait, temporaries or return trip
  • Full range of orthodontic treatments including Invisalign®, and other alternatives to conventional treatment with fixed, silver-colored metal braces
  • Advanced surgical services without the specialist’s price tag, from the removal of impacted wisdom teeth to the precision placement of dental implants in the jawbone using guided surgery
  • Painless, fast, and conservative laser-assisted dentistry 
  • And so much more! 

For more than a quarter of a century, Dr. Sam has demonstrated his excellence in cosmetic, restorative, periodontal, implant, general, preventative, and other branches of dentistry. He looks forward to supporting, restoring, maintaining, and sustaining the stunning appearance and healthy function of your smile. Call (619) 427-0810 to schedule your appointment today!
