Robert Sunstein, DDS, works to make smiles big and bright in Carmel Valley and La Jolla

By Marti Gacioch

Orthodontist Robert Sunstein, DDS, has given clients a lot to smile about for nearly 15 years. In his La Jolla Eads Avenue offices, Sunstein, known as “the Sunny Smile Specialist,” provides a range of orthodontic treatments for both children and adults.

Sunstein recently assumed the Carmel Valley dental practice of his friend, Dr. Dennis Nappen, and divides his time between the two offices.

“I have all state-of-the art equipment, whether it’s traditional braces, clear braces or Invisalign,” Sunstein said. “I use digital radiology, which has minimal radiation and allows everything to be done in my office.”

Sunstein said that technology for orthodontics has evolved so rapidly over the past 10-15 years that right now the best quality techniques are available to accelerate a patient’s progress. “Two generations ago, braces took four-five years to do, but now I’m taking care of my patients in six-12 months,” Sunstein said.

Sunstein uses unique wires with superb elasticity (made of titanium and other metal products) that allow him to use a prescription bracket. Sunstein’s ability to place the bracket where it’s needed, allows the wires to do gentle tooth movement that speeds up the treatment time.

“I told kids coming in for treatment this summer that if they’re good, they’ll have a great smile by the end of next summer and have the braces off before school starts so they can show up at school with perfect, straight white teeth,” he said.

Sunstein moved to La Jolla with his parents in 1982. He attended SDSU and UCLA where he earned his earned his doctorate of dental surgery. He went on to receive his Certificate of Orthodontics from New York’s Columbia University.

“I considered La Jolla the most beautiful place I’d ever seen, and every time I came home, my dream was to have a boutique dental practice in La Jolla,” Sunstein said. He realized that dream when he opened his Village practice nearly 15 years ago.

“I love the people, the weather and the environment, and I love being able to drive from my house without getting on the freeway,” Sunstein said of his days.

He is proud to be a longtime supporter of the Las Patronas’ Jewel Ball. “It’s been a great experience working with that group of people for more than 14 years, and some of my most memorable times while living in La Jolla,” Sunstein said.
