Dr. Sophia Gile, DDS

Dr. Sophia Gile brings energy, compassion, and exceptional skill as a general and restorative dentist to our La Jolla, CA dental practice. She has established La Jolla Center for Advanced Dentistry 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 and expense to the treatment, Dr. Gile is able to perform every stage of implant dentistry at La Jolla Center for Advanced Dentistry.

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 and bridges to laser periodontal care and root canal surgery, she is a true philanthropist, eager to donate both her time and her skills to those in need. She travels the world, visiting countries such as Nicaragua and Mexico, where she provides free dental work to those who do not have access to advanced general and restorative care. She was also, along with her family, instrumental in starting and 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 and 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.

Like Dr. Kim, Dr. Gile is a native of California, having grown up in Redlands. She is proud to serve La Jolla and the greater San Diego region with superior dentistry, and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you in a confidential consultation at La Jolla Center for Advanced Dentistry.

Dr. Gile earned her Bachelor of Science degree in biology at Point Loma Nazarene University here in San Diego. She then proceeded to attend the prestigious Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in Loma Linda, California, where she completed a rigorous four-year program and attained her Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

During her training, she received several honors and awards; most notably, she received the Award for Outstanding Achievement, Clinically and Academically, in Implant Dentistry from the renowned American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

In order to remain current with the latest developments in cosmetic, general, and restorative dentistry, Dr. Giles participates in hours of advanced training and continuing education coursework each year. She integrates what she learns into her primary areas of professional focus, which include full mouth reconstruction, fixed and removable prosthodontics, implant dentistry, extractions, Invisalign® orthodontics, and laser dentistry.

Personal Life

When she isn’t devoting her abundant energies to serving our patients or patients in need with outstanding dental care, she is probably searching for ways to live life to its absolute fullest. Her favorite activities include having fun at the beach with her husband and son. She also enjoys the culinary arts, boating, snowshoeing, snowboarding, hiking, and paddle boarding.
