Dr. Pierre Doche
Dr. Pierre Doche grew up in Southern California for the majority of his life, where he attended the University of California Irvine and graduated in 1991. He then graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston in 1995, where he became a faculty member and shared his expertise and knowledge on clinic floors. Before moving to San Diego, he resided in Boston for 9 years and successfully opened a practice consisting of several offices.
“There’s the beauty in listening and communication. A lot of the time patients have the answers: we just take the time to help discover them. If I spend the time to know their fears, what’s keeping them from seeing the dentist, or what they need to feel encouraged to come in, I’m able to do my best by them, for their utmost health and sense of comfort.”
Dr. Doche’s love for the dental field is apparent by the way he treats his patients with care and respect. Thriving on researching and learning all the new and innovative techniques that would benefit his patients, Dr. Doche’s main priorities are his patient’s comfort and creating the best esthetic and functional dentistry available.
“I want my patients to know that it’s okay to come in on your own terms, rather than wait until something hurts. We’re all about building a positive environment here, and we’ll work with you to get you the care you need to enjoy a smile that will last a long time.”
Today, Dr. Pierre loves to spend as much time as he possibly can with his family. He is married to Rose, who is the office manager and one of the registered dental hygienists in the office, and they have two teenaged sons. When he is not in the office caring for patients, he is at home, doting on his family.
Rosemary Doche enjoys creating smiles as your Dental Hygienist and Office manager at Doche Family Dental. She was born and raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts, where she graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1991.
“I am proud to be working alongside my husband who is not only a brilliant dentist but also a loving father. Feel free to email me with any questions you might have, I will be happy to answer them. Look forward to meeting you soon!”
After working as a dental assistant for a large dental group for 10 years, she applied to Mount Ida College and graduated in the top 2% of her class in 2001. She was awarded the Golden scaler award for her outstanding clinical technique and professional judgment in 2001, and became certified into the Phi Theta Kappa Society for holding a grade point average of 3.8. In addition, she qualified for merit into the Sigma Phi Alpha Dental Hygiene Honors Society, which is only given to the top graduating dental hygiene students.
She loves the challenge and responsibility there is in caring for her patients. She is always researching and updating on the latest technologies for patient safety, oral cancer awareness and periodontal health. She wanted to implement all she has learned over her years of experience in the dental field to her patients to achieve their personal best. During any free time, she enjoys photography, watching her boys play sports and hanging out at the beach.
“Phenomenal dental office! The staff is professional, friendly and the definition of "welcoming". My superb experience began with my first phone call, Ellyn went above and beyond when I inquired if my insurance was accepted there."
“From the deepest part of my heart, I want to say "THANK YOU". Thank you to both my dentist and his staff for the best care they continue to provide to me and my family for the past five years. My teeth looks fantastic! I will certainly be referring any friends of mine to your office."
“I had a LOT of work done in the fall of 2014, and I had a great experience during each visit. The whole staff knows me by name and remembers who I am. They are kind and friendly, and they create an incredibly positive culture in their office."
“Thank you for fitting me in for a same day appointment even though I called in the afternoon regarding dental pain, after a dental procedure with a different dentist. Dr. Doche and staff are friendly and quick. Always a great experience for my family! A++"
“Office uses technology from check in to appointment. Hygienist is very nice and gentle. Doctor is polite, takes his time to outline his plan for your care. All of the staff is friendly and professional. I very much enjoyed my experience and I very much recommend this dental practice."
“Best dental office EVER! I have 2 children and both have been here since their teeth arrived! Dr. Doche is amazing with my kids and so are his entire staff. My daughter just got her first filling and didn't even know she had been given a shot. It was amazing. I highly reccomend this dental office for your family."
“My family has been customers for approximate five years or so, can't say enough good things about Doche Dental, I'll never go anywhere else! From cleanings to simple cavities to even root canals they've always treated us right."
“They do an exceptional job and take care of you well. Thanks Heather for the awesome service. Highly recommend Dr. Doche office for any dental work."
“I found Doche Family Dental about two years ago and I will never go anywhere else. I will continue to go here as long as Dr. Doche has his practice or as long as I have teeth (which is likely to be a long time thanks to him). You will not find a better dentist anywhere in San Diego County (believe me I've looked)."
“I'm so glad to be back with Doche Family Dental. They give such quality care and make a visit to the dentist a very pleasant one, especially after having a bad experience at another dentist office. I really trust them and know they'll take care of me and my teeth. Thank you for restoring my faith in dentists, Dr. Doche."
