Meet Sophia C. Gile, DDS


Dr. Sofia GileSophia C. Gile, DDS, brings energy, compassion & exceptional skill as a general & restorative dentist to our La Jolla, CA, dental practice. She has established Wellness Dental as one of the premier dental implant centers in Southern California. While many practices have to refer patients out for various stages of the dental implant procedure, which adds time & expense to the treatment, Dr. Gile is able to perform every stage of implant dentistry at Wellness Dental.

This is only one of many traits that distinguish Dr. Gile. In addition to her mastery of a comprehensive range of treatments, from dental crowns & bridges to laser periodontal care & root canal surgery, she is a true philanthropist, eager to donate both her time & her skills to those in need. She travels the world, visiting countries such as Nicaragua & Mexico, where she provides free dental work to those who do not have access to advanced general & restorative care. She was also, along with her family, instrumental in starting & expanding the Believe Walk for the Cure, an event that raises funds for cancer therapy.

Dr. Gile’s benevolence extends to her treatment of her patients as well. She is known for her sympathetic chairside manner & pleasant, upbeat personality. Her innate love of humanity shows through in the natural rapport she is able to establish with families, including the very youngest of patients.
