At Dentistry at the Promenade we believe it is extremely important for patients to maintain their regular dental hygiene appointments in our Mission Valley office. Doing so gives patients the best chance at sustaining a healthy, beautiful smile. In conjunction with this, patients who keep up with their regular hygiene appointments on average spend less money on dental care than those who only see the dentist when a problem exists. That’s just one more reason to continue coming in for your routine appointments with Dr. Caeg-Bustamante

As a reward to patients who keep up with their regular hygiene appointments, and as an incentive to those who need a little extra reminder to do so, Dentistry at the Promenade is proud to offer the Whitening for Life program. This teeth whitening program is for individuals who take their oral hygiene and general dental health as seriously as we do. It is our gift to you, which we are happy to provide so long as you maintain your regularly scheduled dental hygiene appointments. The program provides patients with custom-made, professional take-home whitening trays for personal use.


This privilege offered through our Mission Valley office does require policy adherence. Please review our patient guidelines and maintenance rules below. Then print out our Whitening for Life contract and sign it to acknowledge your receipt, understanding, and compliance with the guidelines.
