Biography

Dr. Michael Tyler was born in San Diego, and with the exception of time away for school, has called East County, home, for his entire life. Dr. Tyler graduated from West Hills high school in Santee and after attending college in South Dakota and Long Beach, returned to complete his biology degree at San Diego State University. Dr. Tyler attended dental school at the University of the Pacific School of dentistry (or UOP, though now called Arthur A Dugoni School of Dentistry). The education he received at UOP taught him the value of comprehensive patient care and a gentle caring touch. This approach helped Dr. Tyler mold a philosophy of patient care that pays attention to the needs of the patient as a whole, instead of just a set of teeth. Dr. Tyler continues his education on the advances in all fields of dentistry so he can address more needs and minimize the need of patients to be referred to other clinicians. Since graduation in 2004, Dr. Tyler has worked locally and has established a reliable network of specialist to address your dental needs should that be required. As part of his commitment to further his education, Dr. Tyler is a member of several dental associations and clubs devoted to the continued education of Dentist. He is a member of: San Diego County Dental Society California Dental Association American Dental Association San Diego Mini Implant Residency DOCS (Dental Oral Conscious Sedation) Dr. Tyler and his wife Michelle were married October 2012 and reside in Lakeside. They are looking forward to starting a family in the near future. When not at the office, Dr. Tyler enjoys watching and playing hockey, and occasionally braves the Los Angeles traffic to attend a LA Kings game. In the winter, he enjoys skiing Mammoth Mountain or Park City Utah and riding ATV's in Imperial Valley. In the summer, Dr. Tyler enjoys wakeboarding and taking in the heat at the Colorado River or local beaches, (don’t forget the sunscreen!).

    Fantastic dental office and experience. Set me up with a great treatment plan and I actually need less dental work than my previous dentist was saying I need. Very friendly dentists and staff.

    Let's keep in mind that I actually saw Dr. Gibbons. This experience was practically perfect, as far as a trip to the dentist could go. The doctor was very informative and caring. He was gentle and explained every step along the way. When getting to the "expensive phase" we laid out a plan over several months that was feasible and economical.
