At Elite Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Femme Ambrosio and her staff strive to create a positive experience for every patient, every day. “We are a small boutique practice and are focused on each family’s needs. We encourage open communication and take time to explain prevention plans, treatment and procedure options and finances,” explained Dr. Ambrosio, who is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist. Elite Pediatric Dentistry provides comprehensive dental care to children of all ages, from infants to young adults, as well as children with special health care needs. While the practice is focused on preventative care, such as check-ups and hygiene visits, restorative services to treat dental disease and injury are also offered.

According to Dr. Ambrosio, the philosophy of the practice is to tailor a unique treatment plan for each child. “We treat only what is necessary and believe in ideal, yet conservative, dental treatment,” stated Dr. Ambrosio. She and her staff also feel that staying up-to-date on the most current technology is a vital part of assessing and delivering complete oral health to patients. For example, the office has child-size x-ray equipment and a computer-controlled single tooth anesthesia unit that increases patient comfort. A children’s reception area with books and games, overhead flat-screen monitors and a prize wheel allow for a fun experience for the child.

As stated by Dr. Ambrosio, it is the friendly and compassionate staff at Elite Pediatric Dentistry that truly sets the practice apart. Dr. Ambrosio has worked in various pediatric dental offices throughout the country and learned a great deal from each experience. When she decided to open her own practice, she sought to hire not only people who had knowledge and skills, but also had the personality and determination to provide the best care to her patients. “From the moment a parent calls to schedule an appointment to the time the parent and child walk out the door, they are treated with care and given personalized attention,” said Dr. Ambrosio.

Dr. Ambrosio is a native San Diegan and a mother, both of which she feels serve her well in her practice. “As a mother, I understand the needs of families. I want parents to be happy with the quality of care that their children are receiving. Many of my patients are the children of people who I’ve known since childhood. I feel honored that parents, friends, colleagues and old classmates put their trust in me,” related Dr. Ambrosio.
