Meet Dr. Sarah Belderes, Solana Beach Dentist

Combining an Interest in Art and Science

Dentist {PJ}, Dr. Sarah Belderes

“When I was a kid, I always enjoyed my visits to the dentist and didn’t fear them like so many other children might. I also had an uncle who was a pediatric dentist. Science and art were two of my favorite subjects, dentistry allowed me to combine them into one profession.”

Improving Our Community’s Dental Health

Dr. Belderes went to the University of Southern California, choosing the prestigious institution for its reputation as the best college for dentists to attend in California. While there, she was part of a group called Mobile Dental Clinic, which took an RV into underprivileged areas and provided dentistry services for patients there. She graduated in 2001.

Training in cognitive behavioral psychology has assisted Dr. Belderes in putting patients with dental anxiety at ease. She enjoys guiding people through gentle dental care, helping them to have a positive experience. To keep abreast of the latest trends in dentistry, she takes regular continuing education courses on subjects such as Invisalign®, dental implants and aesthetic work.
