Dr. Lori Nettleton has owned her seaside practice, La Jolla Shores Dental, for over 20 years. It all started when she used ro ride her bike by it everyday on her way to work at Dr. Peterson's Dental Practice, near UC San Diego. It was Dr. Lori's dream practice, especially because of its beach village location. One day she mustered the courage to park the bike, walk in and asked if the practice might be up for sale someday. To her luck, the dentist replied he was thinking about retiring! Soon a deal was struck and La Jolla Shores Dental became a reality.
Dr. Lori is best known for her trusted advice and pain-free dentistry. She has been recognized as the "Best Dentist in San Diego" by San Diego Magazine for seven consecutive years. Many of her family clients have been seeing her for generations. Many local schools even take field trips to her practice, which is joy for her.
A native Californian, she was an emergency room nurse and a pilot who owned and operated an air ambulance company before she discovered her love of dentistry. She has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Cal State Fresno, studied chemistry at UC Santa Barbara and received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of the Pacific. Most recently, Dr. Lori completed a year of postgraduate study at University of Southern California in full mouth reconstruction.
