Dr Christopher Molinar, DDS
Carlsbad Family Dentistry & Cosmetic Dentistry Practice
Dr. Molinar grew up in Carlsbad California, and was fortunate enough to return and open his Carlsbad Dental Office in 1997, and continues to live there with his wife and children today.


Dr. Molinar attended Cal-Poly, San Luis Obispo for his undergraduate studies and graduated from the University of Southern California, Dental School, where he also contributed as a part-time instructor. He is committed to continuing education, is an avid reader of dental literature and manages to use this up-to-date information to offer the best care and results for you, his patient.

Belief System

Dr. Molinar has true compassion for his patients and conscientiously works to painlessly eliminate their dental problems. He explains recommended procedures carefully so that his patients understand what to expect, and provides opportunities for them to ask questions. In short, he doesn’t try to rush you through your visit.

While Dr. Molinar is a cosmetic dentist, he is great with children so also focuses on family dentistry, and can treat you and your entire family. He believes that children should be seen as early as possible, even if it is just to watch their parents at their dental visit.

Modern Technology

Dr. Molinar uses several newer technologies in his Carlsbad dental office, one of which is called CEREC. This system allows him to produce crowns, inlays and onlays right in his office rather than sending the job out to an external lab for fabrication. What this means for our patients is that it:

  • Eliminates the need for temporary structures
  • Eliminates the need for additional anesthetic (in most cases)
  • Allows him to take care of people in a single visit.

The use of air abrasion technology allows Dr. Molinar to take care of small cavities without the “drill”, the “needle” or discomfort. He believes in taking care of problems while they are small rather than waiting for them to get bigger, which often avoids additional cost, discomfort and complication for the patient.

So, please feel free to schedule a visit with Dr. Molinar, he would love to meet you at his Carlsbad dental office, and take care of your dental needs.
