About California Coast Dental Arts

Facility Information

Welcome to California Coast Dental Arts. We opened our doors in March 2005 and have since impressed and received praises from our patients, colleagues, and the surrounding community. The state of the art treatment rooms offer a relaxing atmosphere without sacrificing personal care and attention to each individual. We have integrated technological advances such as digital radiography (which reduces the amount of radiation up to 90% versus traditional x-rays) and intra-oral cameras in the rooms in order to work together with each individual patient to aid him/her to obtain optimal oral health.

For individuals who fear dental procedures, we offer the ability to listen to music with individual headphones or to watch DVDs while receiving dental care. We also offer services that may ease dental anxiety such as oral sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to make your visit a pleasant one. At California Coast Dental Arts, we believe in treating our patients like family; which includes wanting and giving them the best dentistry we can provide. Again, we welcome you to come in and experience California Coast Dental Arts; where technology meets old fashioned TLC.

About Dr. Jack Chan

Jack Chan DDSRaised on the island of Guam since the age of three, I enjoyed island living until moving to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California. I graduated in three and a half years with a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Sciences in 1996 and a Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 2001.

I established my own practice in Oceanside, California building it almost literally from the ground up in 2005. While building California Coast Dental Arts, I became a part-time faculty member at USC Dental School teaching restorative techniques to prepare the dental students to work in a clinical environment. Although I enjoyed teaching and explaining the logic behind techniques and procedures to dental students; our triplets, a growing practice and the commute prevented me from continuing. However, I have been able to perform free dental screenings on behalf of the Oceanside Unified School District since 2008.

I have been voted one of San Diego's Top Dentists by San Diego Magazine in 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.

My philosophy in life is simple: Leave the world a better place than you found it...in my case, one smiling person at a time.

What People Say

I had not been to the dentist in about 15 years and decided I should finally go. Dr. Chan's office was a great experience. They did a thorough exam and determined that they could get my teeth clean without the painful and intensive "deep cleaning". It took awhile, but the hygienist (I'm sorry I do not remember her name) did a fantastic job. I did not hesitate to go back a few months later when I was scheduled to return. It was great to find a dentist's office that looked for ways to not sell you additional procedures and make the visit a pleasant one. Sadly I moved out of the area and now have to start from scratch...or fly back to San Diego to get my teeth cleaned (believe me, I've considered it).

I was a patient of Dr Chan's about seven years ago. When I first went to him my mouth was a complete mess. He really saved me. He did the most amazing work and since then I haven't had any cavities. The only reason I don't go to him anymore is because I moved back to New England. I will tell you that my last year in California I did drive all the way from Costa Mesa to Oceanside just to have him save my tooth. He is by far one of the very few dentists I trust.

Having been a dental assistant in the past I know his work is good. He takes pride and care in all he does for his patients. He really did all he could to help me get my mouth in order in a timely fashion. It's been seven years and his work is still holding up strong. I simply can not praise his dentistry enough. Way to go Dr. Chan.

Dr. Chan is the BEST! He puts you at ease and is very accommodating. He has a gentle steady hand. I have never been in pain from any of his dental work. Dr. Chan ACTUALLY DISCUSSES your options with you without any high pressure sales pitch. His staff is super friendly and professional. His office is nice and convenient to get to in downtown Oceanside. I even get better birthday cards from his office than what I receive from my own family! Lol. I am 44 years old and Dr. Chan is the best dentist I have ever had. 2 THUMBS UP!

Jerome I., Santa Fe, TX

Dr. Chan and his staff are by far the best dental team I have ever been seen by. My whole family goes to him, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others. From the comfortable lobby, well stocked current magazines, the dental chairs with video screens on the ceiling to the hot wash cloth to wipe your face at the end of the visit....its all good. He even follows up all my visits with a call to my house at the end of the day, checking on my status. I am impressed with his proficiency as a dentist, he has a way to numb me up that is pain free. he also will provide another shot to neutralize the pain medication. His office is conveniently located right off the 5 in Oceanside.

Joe R., Oceanside, CA

Best dentist I've ever been to - very helpful and personable individual. I've never felt more welcome and taken care of in a dentists chair in my life.

Dr. Chan is in all sincerity the best dentist I have ever been to and have been going to him for the past approximately 10 years. He was my general dentist when he was located in San Juan Capistrano, and now my entire family and I travel from Orange County to Oceanside for ALL of our dental needs. He is thoughtful, caring, and conservative when it comes to all types of dental restorations. His staff is absolutely amazing and truly are team players, I am overly impressed by all of them. I don't have a tendency to be scared of dental procedures, but I definitely have family members who are, and he is the only dentist that I have met that has the ability to put them at ease, he simply has one of the best bed side manners I have ever witnessed and his dental work compares to none. Honestly, you would be a moron not to see Dr. Chan and his staff.

Melody B., Foothill Ranch, CA

I looove Dr. Chan and his staff. And, I really mean it when I say it because the dentist is definitely one of my least favorite places to visit. Dr. Chan and his friendly staff make it more than bearable. They are very attentive. I never have to wait to be seen, the staff always greets me with a warm welcome and they even send birthday and holiday cards. It doesn't get any better than this for a dentist's office!

Natalee B., Oceanside, CA

"My family and I love Dr. Chan and his staff! I have an Uncle who is one of the best dentist up in LA, but it was hard balancing everyone's appointments with a full time job and 2 hr commute was difficult. I had to find a dentist in Oside where we've lived for 14 yrs, and my standards were very high. We've been going to Dr.Chan a little over 11 yrs now. Dr. Chan takes his time explaining everything he recommends, work that is urgent, and work that can wait a few more months. The price they quote you doesn't change after the work is complete."

Rose E. Oceanside, CA

I'll be honest, I do not like going to the dentist. But Dr Chan is a remarkable dentist, and not only have I maintained a steady and constant twice a year visit for my regular check ups, I drive 45 minutes each way from San Diego to Oceanside to see Dr Chan, he's that good.

T P., San Diego, CA

"While visiting Oceanside, my husband had a crown come off. Dr. Jack Chan went above and beyond just cementing it back on. His thoroughness and thoughtfulness were exceptional, even to the point of emailing details and a photo to give his dentist back home. And he charged a very reasonable price. I know that, because the same thing happened to me in Sedona, AZ, two weeks earlier... and it was literally highway robbery, the amount I was charged. Thank you Dr. Jack."
