First Tooth is Del Mar’s Premier Pediatric Dental Office

First Tooth is your local children’s dental office located in north Del Mar, near Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe. It is the private dental practice of Dr. Nicholas Jize, or as he is known by his patients, Dr. Nick. Our office mission is to educate our patients about the importance of oral health and provide the best experience possible for our patients and their families.

Anyone who has met Dr. Nick knows that prevention is his number one goal. We want your child to understand that their oral health is in their hands. As long as one of those hands can operate a toothbrush! With prevention as our main focus, we have a conservative philosophy when it comes to restorative dentistry. If your child does happen to need any dental treatment, Dr. Nick will assist you to select the best behavior management option to complete the treatment plan.

At First Tooth Pediatric Dentistry we accept most PPO children’s dental insurances. No insurance? No problem we have an affordable dental package and financing available through care credit. We want your child to have the same quality dental care and a great experience that we would expect for our own children.

Although we are fully equipped to be your child’s emergency dentist we would prefer to become a familiar place with a dentist and staff that your child remembers and trusts. We know that going to the dentist can be worrisome for both children and their parents, which is why our goal is to make each visit positive in order to minimize anxiety and do our best to make your visit fun!

Nicholas Jize, DDS
