Business Spotlight: Dad and daughter dental team of Drs. John and Tracy Taddey moves practice to Prospect Street in La Jolla


John Taddey, D.D.S. and Tracy Taddey, D.D.S. — La Jolla’s father and daughter dental team — are proud to announce the opening of their new office at 875 Prospect St., Suite 301 in La Jolla.

Previously on Ivanhoe Avenue for 41 years, the Taddeys said they are excited to continue their family legacy in dentistry by embarking on a new chapter of their practice.

“Our new office is very modern and has a great ocean view; we feel lucky to continue serving our patients in a spectacular new space,” they said.

The Taddeys offer the most advanced dental technologies so their patients have a relaxing and state-of-the-art, comfortable experience. The new location is in the heart of the Village with validated onsite parking.

The Taddey team has a great commitment to their patients providing modern and state-of-the-art dentistry. Digital X-rays, highly cosmetic porcelain metal-free crowns and veneers, Invisalign, tooth-colored composite fillings, implants, and laser cosmetic and gum therapy are all part of the advances in dentistry the Taddeys offer their patients.

Dr. Tracy Taddey’s passion and main focus is cosmetic and restorative dentistry, as well as Invisalign. “The newest cosmetic crowns are metal-free and give the patient a beautiful and natural, translucent smile,” Dr. Tracy Taddey said. “We see patients who felt embarrassed by their teeth and rarely smile, transform into an individual with great self confidence and self-esteem, and this is one of the most rewarding aspects of dentistry by having a positive impact on appearance and self worth.”

While attending New York University and post-graduate studies, Dr. Tracy Taddey worked for ELLE magazine as an Assistant Beauty and Health Editor, where she was exposed to the world of cosmetics, fashion and models. “I became interested in cosmetics and aesthetic perfection before my dental career began. I love the intricate details of cosmetic dentistry and smile design, and I love how a beautiful and personalized smile can absolutely change someone’s life.”

Dr. Tracy Taddey is a third-generation dentist. “Both my grandfather and dad are dentists and continuing our family practice is a great privilege for me. My dad and I have loved working together for 17 years, and we are so happy for the years to come!” she said.

Dr. John Taddey opened his doors to dentistry in La Jolla from New York City in 1974, and has continued to thrive and provide excellent dental care to many patients over the years. Dr. John Taddey said, “We get to know our patients very well and provide a positive personal experience. We are a very family-oriented practice and enjoy treating all age groups, including children.” Dr. John focuses his practice on specialty work such as root canals, extractions, and is a renowned expert on TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Dysfunction therapy and Sleep Apnea.

“This move is significant in my career, however, the patients make our practice, and we are all moving forward together. I am thrilled to continue excellent dental care in a new environment together with Tracy and all that is to come.”

The Taddey team welcomes new patients and accepts many insurance plans. In-office insurance as well as payment options are available. u
