About California Coast Dental Arts

Facility Information

Welcome to California Coast Dental Arts. We opened our doors in March 2005 and have since impressed and received praises from our patients, colleagues, and the surrounding community. The state of the art treatment rooms offer a relaxing atmosphere without sacrificing personal care and attention to each individual. We have integrated technological advances such as digital radiography (which reduces the amount of radiation up to 90% versus traditional x-rays) and intra-oral cameras in the rooms in order to work together with each individual patient to aid him/her to obtain optimal oral health.

For individuals who fear dental procedures, we offer the ability to listen to music with individual headphones or to watch DVDs while receiving dental care. We also offer services that may ease dental anxiety such as oral sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to make your visit a pleasant one. At California Coast Dental Arts, we believe in treating our patients like family; which includes wanting and giving them the best dentistry we can provide. Again, we welcome you to come in and experience California Coast Dental Arts; where technology meets old fashioned TLC.

Dr. Amanda Barba

Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, I attended The University of Texas at El Paso and earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering in 2012. I then moved to Houston, Texas and worked as a corrosion engineer for four years prior to attending dental school at The University of Texas Health Science Center Houston School of Dentistry, where I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in 2021.
After graduation, I volunteered regularly at the El Paso Baptist Clinic, where I performed multiple extractions for patients who were in pain and had no access to dental care. Prior to joining California Coast Dental Arts, I worked in a private dental practice in Escondido. I enjoy getting to know my patients, working with Dr. Chan and the wonderful staff, and building upon my skill sets as a healthcare professional.
My husband and I enjoy living in San Diego with our two dachshunds, Stella and Pearl, who accompany us to all of the beautiful outdoor areas in the San Diego area.

Dr. Scott Welling, DDS

The first thing Dr. Welling wants all of his patients to know is that he will take the time to listen to their concerns and questions. Health and well-being are not one-sided discussions. We work as a doctor/patient team to arrive at the best treatment for your health.

Dr. Welling’s favorite hobbies are all about spending time with his family. He and his wife Harriet have three beautiful children: Esther, Archie, and Hugo. Together with their Bernedoodle Teddy, they love hiking, chasing sunsets, fishing, trying new restaurants, and playing sports.

Dr. Welling received his bachelor’s degree in Economics from Brigham Young University and completed his dental degree at The Ohio State University. He has since completed additional studies and courses for placing cosmetic veneers, implants, and Invisalign braces.
