Our Services

Kid Friendly Office

We take pride in helping our youngest patients have a wonderful experience here at Millennium Dental in Encinitas.

Dr.Baha and his staff look forward to putting kids at ease and educating both the patients and parents along the way. Millennium Dental comforts children by teaching them that there is nothing to fear about dentistry. Additionally, our dental chairs are equipped with televisions, which help kids relax during dental appointments.

Mercury-Free Composite
and Porcelain Fillings

Millennium Dental is mercury free and we do not use any amalgam filling material. Instead, we offer safe composite fillings, which are as strong as mercury and silver fillings, and can be matched to the exact shade of your natural teeth.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask Dr.Baha.

Dental Implants

Dr.Baha and his staff offer a full array of dental implant work.

From assessment to final implementation, Millennium Dental in Encinitas is your source for dental implant procedures. Dental implants are an amazing option for those who are seeking permanent, lasting replacements for missing teeth. Millennium Dental guarantees to provide you with implants that are long lasting and blend seamlessly into your mouth, just like a real tooth.

Oral Surgery

Millennium Dental offers all patients the convenience of having many oral surgery procedures done in-house at our office in Encinitas. Dr.Baha also works with a network of oral surgery specialists that are always a quick referral away. We are devoted to providing you with the best care.


Are you interested in corrective orthodontics?

Invisalign is an amazing alternative to traditional braces. Dr.Baha and his staff will be happy to consult you on whether Invisalign could be right for you. We have been offering this service for over 10 years at Millennium Dental in Encinitas, with spectacular results from our patients.

Root Canals

Dr.Baha has over 20 years of experience of performing root canals throughout his dental career. While root canals may seem intimidating, Millennium Dental in Encinitas promises to make this necessary evil as pain free as possible for every patient.



And Routine Check Ups

Cleanings and check-ups are integral parts of maintaining and monitoring your dental health. Millennium Dental offers both routine and deep cleanings, as well as check-ups and consultations for whitening options to all our patients. Dr.Baha and his staff in Encinitas are happy to assist you in all your dental needs.


And Oral Appliances

If you struggle with teeth-clenching, grinding, or mild cases of Sleep Apnea, a custom mouthguard may be right for you.

Nightguards and oral appliances can help protect your teeth and help you overcome some cases of sleep apnea. Many patients are never even aware they have these types of sleep issues until the damage is severe. Dr.Baha and his skilled staff are ready to assist you in preventing future dental issues. Please visit Millennium Dental in Encinitas for a consultation.



What Our Patients Say About Us

I was so nervous at the thought of having to change dentists, but felt immediately at ease by the friendly staff at Millennium Dental.

Dr.Baha did a great job explaining what he was doing to work on and how he intended to do it.  By the time my procedure was over, I realized I worried for nothing!

I appreciated his explanations, patience, and expertise.   I am completely satisfied with my care and overall experience, and actually look forward to my next visit.

Mrs. E. Dollick San Diego

Hands down the best dentist I have ever been to!!

Dr.Baha makes dental visits easy and pain-free.

The office is clean, people are courteous, the procedures and techniques are modern and well explained.

Dr.Baha gives you the feeling that he is 100% focused on you and your needs, unlike some dentists that seem to run from one patient to another while you sit in the chair waiting.  I would recommend his practice to anyone.

Noel M. Encinitas

Dr.Baha is the most caring and gentle dentist I’ve ever known. I always feel secure and in his ‘golden’ hands. A master an an artist of his craft.
His friendly, mature and qualified staff create an atmosphere of relaxation.
I highly recommend his office.

Dr. Inna Goldberg San Diego

Dr.Baha is an Artist!
He gave me my smile back when I thought there was no hope.
He’s the best.

First and foremost my goal is to keep you healthy. I practice CONSERVATIVE dentistry, meaning we try to keep as much tooth structure as possible. I want you to keep what Mother Nature gave you. I am committed to constantly researching new products, materials, and cutting-edge technologies; and quickly implement them into my practice. I enjoy  continuing  my education and consistently attend weekend seminars to fine tune my skills. I look forward to meeting you soon!"
