Dr. David Ly

Dr. David Ly, a uniquely child-friendly dentist, instills excitement for dental care, fostering lifelong habits. A Columbia University graduate, he holds specialist status in pediatric dentistry, a distinction achieved by fewer than 3 percent of all dentists. Continuing advanced studies annually, Dr. Ly prioritizes personalized patient connections, ensuring a distinctive and eagerly anticipated dental experience. A proud Southern Californian, he and his wife, Laura, are devoted parents to three boys. Dr. Ly is a distinguished member of prominent dental associations.


Part of the Dr. Ly team for 13 years, Destiny, our Acting Office Manager, and RDA, brings 15 years of dental experience, with 14 in pediatric dentistry. Her passion for children's well-being is reflected in her pursuit of an ASL Interpreting Certificate, enhancing communication with deaf and hard-of-hearing patients.
