Drs. Lee and Venuti Make Children and Parents Feel at Ease While Visiting the Dentist

As one of the first pediatric dental offices in San Diego County, the doctors and staff at Torrey Pines Pediatric Dentistry have been providing care to local children since 1991. “Just as most children see a pediatrician instead of a general practitioner, pediatric dentistry is specialized for children and their unique needs. We have child friendly tools and instruments, televisions mounted on the ceiling, individual headphones at each chair and a child-friendly play area in the waiting room,” explained Dr. Jaye Venuti, who along with Dr. Angela Lee are the principals of the practice. Both Drs. Lee and Venuti have extensive training in pediatric dentistry and are committed to providing comprehensive dental care to children in a comfortable, bright, and relaxing environment.

CS-TPP2The office offers preventative cleanings and exams, as well as dental sealants, fluoride treatments and white-colored fillings. “We also use digital charting and x-rays, as well as laser dentistry and the “Wand” which allows for painless injections. Each of these new technologies helps us to provide better care to our patients and increase their level of comfort during procedures,” stated Dr. Lee.

The Torrey Pines Pediatric Dentistry team works with children and their families to develop an individualized treatment plan that focuses on providing all of the educational tools necessary for patients to enjoy a cavity-free future. “We take the time to get to know our patients and educate them on good oral hygiene practices. We also explore all treatment options and work together with our patients and their parents to deliver the best care possible,” said Dr. Venuti.

In her spare time, Dr. Lee enjoys running, yoga, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
