Meet Dr. Michael O'Brien

I was born in Saint Louis, MO, but San Diego is my home. I am a proud Trojan and graduated in 2008 from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, a program renowned for clinical excellence in restorative dentistry. I practiced in Saint Louis for four years before moving back out west to San Diego for good in 2013. I am currently licensed to practice in the states of California and Missouri.

Simply put, I am passionate about dentistry. I love working with my hands and helping people through both education and high quality dentistry that mimics nature. I am constantly reading and researching dental literature, continuously updating my dental knowledge. I am a member of the San Diego Advanced Study Group which is part of the Seattle Study Club, a well known and well respected dental study club. When living in Saint Louis, I was a member of two different study groups: the Young Dentist Study Club and the Oral Surgery Study Club. I am dedicated to the craft of dentistry and committed to providing clear treatment options in simple terms and consistently excellent results.

I love living in San Diego with my wonderful wife and two amazing daughters. When I'm not practicing dentistry or spending time with my girls, I enjoy fishing, playing with my dog, and welding. I am an avid home brewer.
