  COVID-19 Update 3-18-20


Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe. 

In light of the evolving pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to close our practice for the next week/ 2 weeks. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively evaluate this dynamic situation and assists in the CDC's guidance on social separation. If you have an appointment scheduled with us this week, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment. 

Dr. McRae will be on call in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require emergency dental care, please call our office as you normally would and one of our staff will contact you. 

We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research and planning guided our decision. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours. 

Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind. 

We wish you all continues health and strength during this challenging time.

Welcome to the Oceanside dental office of Curtis E. McRae--a family dental practice where compassionate care promotes good oral health and beautiful smiles!

Established in 1993, the office of Curtis E. McRae, DDS, is conveniently off the 78 freeway between El Camino Real and College Blvd. The office is located next to Rady Children’s Hospital and MiraCosta College. Practicing since 1991, Dr. McRae has more than twenty-five years of providing excellent dental care to the Oceanside community of North San Diego County.

Our Oceanside Family Dental Practice

Dr. McRae practices caring and compassionate dental care, providing his patients with the best results. This has led to generations of families visiting his dental practice for years in its Oceanside, CA location. He regularly sees children and provides a treasure chest of rewards for them if they complete a good visit.

Our Oceanside family dental practice maintains exceptionally high standards for every aspect of the practice. Utilizing top-of-the-line equipment, Dr. McRae incorporates his belief that modern technological advances provide greater comfort and better oral health care results for his patients. The office conducts weekly sterilization tests, ensuring that each piece of equipment has been properly inspected for the safety of the patients.

A Blend of Art and Medicine

Dr. McRae began his career as a dental technician, a position requiring the ability to combine technology and aesthetics to create the perfect restorative crown, denture, or bridge. Drawing upon these skills enables him to envision the best possible treatment for his patients along with the stunning results that process will provide.

Our Oceanside dentist utilizes digital x-rays, partly because they provide higher quality images, but also because they expose his patients to lower levels of radiation. In circumstances where the development of the mouth must be monitored, panoramic x-rays are taken. They are also used for dental implant placement.

Dr. McRae has an impressive array of professional memberships including the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Diego County Dental Society, North County Implant Study Group, California Center for Advanced Dental Studies, San Diego CEREC Study group and the Trojan Horse Study Group.

Some of the services we provide include:
  • Cleanings & Exams~Sealants & Fluoride
  • Teeth Whitening ~ Tooth Colored Fillings
