Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Stephen Chan, DMD Headshot Holistic Dentist in San Diego, CA

Dr. Stephen Chan, DMD

At Smilehaven Dental Center, we’re proud to provide all of the cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry treatments that you’ll find at any other dentist’s office in and around El Cajon and La Mesa, CA. However, where we differ from other cosmetic dentists is that our practice utilizes holistic dentistry, an approach where we focus on whole-body health instead of just the mouth. By visiting a holistic dentist, you’ll essentially get more for the same cost as our prices are comparable to traditional general and cosmetic dentists. As an added bonus, we’re also among the few holistic dental practices around that accepts insurance. We also have a Dental Wellness Club for those who don’t have insurance. We hope you’ll come visit us soon and meet our terrific holistic dentist, Dr. Chan!

Dr. Chan is a dentist with special emphasis in bio-compatible, biological, green, natural, and holistic dentistry. He has expertise in all major aspects of dentistry, including general and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Chan has over 30 years of experience, keeping in tune with all the latest techniques in dentistry. He is dedicated to utilizing the most effective bio-compatible, non-toxic technology to create outstanding smiles for his patients and help them to achieve better health.

Dr. Sophia Aramoon

Meet Dr. Sophia Aramoon, a talented and compassionate dentist with a dedication for providing the highest quality of dental care to patients. Dr. Aramoon received her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry before attending the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry where she graduated with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She has continued to advance her clinical skills through courses taken through the prestigious Kois Center, American Academy of Facial Esthetics, and American Academy of Clear Aligners.

While Dr. Aramoon’s expertise includes a wide range of dental services, her passion is creating beautiful smiles for patients that restore their happiness and confidence. For a patient, this could mean clear aligners to straighten teeth, veneers to improve the shape and color, or a full mouth rehabilitation to restore functionality and chewing abilities. While her clinical skills are top-notch, Dr. Aramoon’s gentle touch and calming energy have made her a patient favorite, with many singing her praises for her ability to alleviate anxiety in the dental chair and provide a painless and pleasant experience.

Outside of the office, Dr. Aramoon’s commitment to excellence extends into her personal life. When she’s not busy creating amazing smiles, you’ll find her channeling her artistic talent into paintings, card-making, and even pottery! Growing up, Dr. Aramoon was a musical prodigy, mastering not one, not two, but three instruments – piano, violin, and guitar. She is devoted to living a joyful, healthy lifestyle, maintaining her physical and mental acuity through Pilates, ice-cold matcha tea (yum!), and caring for her two adorable miniature beagles. We are thrilled to have Dr. Aramoon as part of our team, where her skills, holistic approach and expertise will undoubtedly elevate the quality of care for all our patients.
