He has practiced privately in the La Jolla area since 1983, and he is committed to treating each patient he meets comprehensively and comfortably. At the end of the day, the satisfaction of helping patients through stressful and complex dental issues provides Dr. Javelet with the motivation to continue practicing. His 35 years of experience have allowed him to develop the skills necessary to continue providing a high level of care.


Dr. Javelet regularly attends continuing education courses to stay abreast of the latest developments in dental care, and in 1991, he received his Board Certification from the American Board of Endodontics. Dr. Javelet is a member of a number of professional dental organizations, including:
