We Are Moving!

Our dental family is growing, so we need more space. At the end of July, we will be moving to a new and larger facility closer to downtown. We will be adding more dentists and additional staff to accommodate your dental needs with much more availability.

SLO Dental will now be SLO Peak Dentistry and will be located at 862 Meinecke Rd. Suite 200 (2nd floor), by Foothill and Santa Rosa. We will close our current office Friday, July 19 at 3:00 p.m. to begin the moving process, and will re-open at our new location Monday, July 22 at 11:00 a.m.

We’re very excited about this transition, which will allow us to continue delivering exceptional dental services, but with greater comfort, convenience and capacity. All currently booked appointments will remain, so no need to adjust your calendar, just your GPS.

Yours in the interest of better dental health,
SLO Peak Dentistry

Dental Team

Our team is dedicated to providing you with the personalized and gentle care you deserve.

  • Jerry Yu

    I come from a family of dentists, yet I didn’t have the best of teeth and went through a fair share of problems and procedures. Since then, I have tried to make getting dental care comfortable, simple, and as gentle as possible.

    After graduating from high school in Santa Maria, I attended UCLA for undergrad and New York University for dental school. I also completed a surgery residency in Long Island. After I got tired of shoveling snow in New York, I decided to return to the Central Coast in 2011. I enjoy spending time with my wife Samantha and chasing after our daughter Genevieve and son Maxwell.

  • Alejandro Echeverry

    Dr. Echeverry graduated from Universidad Javeriana in Bogota, Colombia in June of 1996 and has been consistently excelling in dentistry ever since.

    He has further been educated in course subjects such as dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, endodontics (root canals), prosthodontics (restorative dentistry), and full mouth rehabilitation. He completed the “Advanced Fixed Prosthodontics Residency” from 2009-2010 at Esthetic Professionals Education Center.
