Meet Dr. Wernick and Staff

Dr. Wernick

Dr. Wernick was born in Oregon and grew up in the sunny Southern California. He attended La Sierra University where he received his Bachelor of Science in biology. He graduated From Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2002.
Dr. Wernick was drawn to dentistry initially through postitive experiences as a child from his Pediatric dentist. "I was never afraid of going to the dentist as a kid," Dr. Wernick recalls. "I remember that my brothers and I had fun at the dentist office and even looked forward to it!"
Dr. Wernick has enjoyed living in the North County for the past 11 years. In his free time he likes to golf, surf, and run.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Laura Lee is a San Diego native and has close to 25 years of dental experience.  She has worked in all areas of the dental office and many areas of dentistry including oral surgery, implantology, cosmetics, and restorative. 
Laura Lee loves practicing dental hygiene the best because it allows her to build relationships with her patients.  Patient comfort is very important, so she tries to share the warmth and laughter of the office to help relax patients.  She has a passion for teaching the importance of having a healthy smile.  She loves what she does!
Laura Lee loves to spend her free time with her 3 children, family, friends and  sharing good music and great food.


Registered Dental Assistant

North county has been my hometown ever since 1984.  I attended Palomar College where I earned my associate degree in Dental Assisting.  I have been in the field of dentistry as an Registered Dental Assistant for over 10 years and I enjoy working in different aspects of dental assisting.  In my free time I am usually with my family camping, biking and hiking.  We also love eating out and trying all the diverse eateries here in San Diego.

Working with Dr. Wernick is a great opportunity and I am so excited to be a part of his Team.  My primary goal is to provide the best dental care and to create  long lasting relationships with all the patients.


Front Office Manager

I was born and raised in New Mexico and spent a total of 6 years overseas in Guam and Iceland. I have lived in San Diego since July of 2014 and love everything about the area. I have over 10 years of dental assisting experience and with my Associates in Business Management, I was looking to bring my skills to a wonderful office like ours. In November of 2019, Dr. Wernick gave me the opportunity to come work with him and I truly love being a part of this dental family.

I love getting to know our patients and believe we are all one big family.  It is my passion to help our patients and bring smiles to their face.
