Kevin Fitzpatrick, DDS, MS
Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in the Heart of Del Mar
Kevin Fitzpatrick DDS, MS
Located in the heart of Del Mar, off of Camino Del Mar, Kevin Fitzpatrick DDS, MS is a high-quality dentist that provides a number of necessary dental services, from root canals and cavity-filling to Invisalign treatments and teeth whitening. A mercury-free practice that puts the health of their patients first, Dr. Fitzpatrick is determined to provide top-notch care to everyone who walks through their doors.
The company began in May 2015, when Kevin Fitzpatrick bought an established dental practice in Del Mar from Dr. Geoff Murray. While the 43 year-old practice changed hands, Fitzpatrick kept the office location the same, along with Murray’s business beliefs. “I’m continuing the tradition set by Dr. Murray for high-quality dental treatment, top-notch care for our patients and a commitment to honesty and ethical treatment,” Fitzpatrick says.
Thus far, that commitment has worked well for him. A true family practice, Fitzpatrick treats patients of all ages, from young children to adults. The business embraces a proactive and preventative philosophy, integrating scientific principles of evidence-based and minimally-invasive dentistry. Fitzpatrick’s comprehensive care includes crowns, implants, bridges, veneers and tooth-colored fillings. But this is just the tip of the iceberg for what Fitzpatrick offers. “We do feels like family. root canals [and] tooth extractions,” Fitzpatrick explains. “We [also] treat sleep-disordered breathing (like sleep apnea) and snoring. We treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction and make custom sports mouth guards. And we offer after-hours emergency treatment.”
In addition to the myriad of care options offered by Fitzpatrick, there’s one other, major game-changing device Fitzpatrick has in his arsenal: a Solea laser. Fitzpatrick’s is the second dental practice in San Diego County to offer Solea laser treatments. Says Fitzpatrick, “We can now do dental treatment with no shots and no drill... and no pain! The laser allows us to work without anesthesia over 96% of the time, and our patients leave the office the way they came in––no more numb mouth and fat lip.” The laser allows for quicker appointments and pain-free procedures––perfect for kids or busy adults on-the-go.
Dr. Fitzpatrick uses the Solea laser to help improve the overall experience of his patients, and it’s this empathetic thinking that led Dr. Fitzpatrick and his family to become involved in the community. In addition to serving on the parent council of their children’s school, the Fitzpatricks participate in a number of local charities. “I am a member of the Del Mar Rotary Club,” Fitzpatrick explains. “The official motto of Rotary International [is] “Service Above Self,” [which] describes how we feel about our commitment to our neighbors and people all over the world... Since we live in Del Mar and love the ocean, we volunteer for multiple beach clean-ups throughout the year, and we volunteer with trail maintenance around the county.” Dr. Fitzpatrick is also a proud veteran and donates his time to many veteran-related causes. He is also a member of the Del Mar Foundation and the Del Mar Village Association.
Above all else, Kevin Fitzpatrick DDS, MS is a company that puts their patients’ best interests above all else.
Says Fitzpatrick, “We pride ourselves in building close relationships with our patients, and [we] love to treat everyone as if they were one of our family members.” It’s a breath of fresh air in a world rigid and distant, and it’s what sets Fitzpatrick apart. “We are always available for our patients––even after-hours and on holidays. We all love what we do, and we love to make you smile!”
