Mission Statement:  Our outstanding dental team crafts a caring and low-stress dental environment.  We believe providing patients with dental knowledge, prevention services, and conservative state-of-the-art dentistry leads to the connection between a healthy smile and a healthy life.  The team confidently provides a broad range of restorative, emergency, and esthetic dental services.  We are loyal to our practice’s tremendous legacy, and we will reinforce patients' trust in us by helping patients make educated dental decisions.

Who we serve:  We are a General Dentistry practice located in the Park West neighborhood between Hillcrest and Bankers Hill in San Diego.  Our practice serves many families, downtown business professionals, and retired professionals. 

Legacy:  2654 4th Avenue has a long and meaningful legacy as a San Diego healthcare facility.  The facility began as a pediatric physician’s office.  It changed to a dental practice in the early 1960s when Drs. Carlton Williams (former ADA president) and Bernard Martin moved their dental practice into the building.  Drs. Williams and Martin also had help from Dr. Robert Brown to care for many San Diego patients.  For the youngest patients’ enjoyment, Dr. Martin (Dr. William’s son-in-law) built a toy box which still remains to this day; many of our patients who pulled a fun reward from the box as children now watch their children or grandchildren pull a toy from the box after a dental appointment.  Drs. Fred Conrad, John Holman, and Anton Bisbas shared an orthodontics practice on the 2nd floor, which also contained a full-service dental laboratory.  


The more “recent” history (~1970s to present) includes a long stretch of quality dentists including Drs. Mike Brewer, John Deal, and Mark Hansen.  The partners excelled at conservative dentistry and developed their premier gold casting dental restoration skill set via a busy study club held monthly here at the facility.  Around 2007 John Deal retired.  With the unexpected retirements of Dr. Brewer in 2013 and Dr. Hansen in 2016, Dr. Demko and Dr. Brockett (John Deal’s nephew) were tapped to continue caring for our wonderful patients.  Dr. Demko and Dr. Brockett pledge to continue the style of conservative dentistry historically performed at this practice.  When dental restorations are required, they will educate patients about options ranging from “traditional” gold restorations to state-of-the-art, tooth-colored digital dentistry solutions.

"Best dental experience in my 32 years on Earth! Count all our family as lifetime patients!"

Micaela A.

"The new Demko Brockett Dental practice quality of care and treatment has my unqualified approval. As a loyal patient of the formative and masterful Brewer-Hansen dental duo there came an inevitable moment of truth when in need of a small repair to recent cosmetic work I learned of the new Demko Brockett successors. Any momentary second guessing the quality of care levels was transformed on the instant of my meeting the impressive Dr. Demko. My last minute emergency appointment was swiftly

made and timely kept by the extant support team and the vigilant Marie. Once seated, like a veteran airline pilot, Dr. Demko incorporated me into his “flight team” and preflighted his every intention and action with consummate superiority and professionalism. In quick time the repair was successfully completed - skillfully assisted

by the perennially charming Jennie."

"Being a hyper-sensitive patient, I understand the challenge I present to my health care professionals.  Have to tell you both how very much I appreciate my time spent with you...the session we shared was truly remarkable for me.  It was truly amazing for me to be able to chew without discomfort on the left side of my mouth mere hours after your work.  Thank you both so very much for your professionalism, care, and concern for a hyper-sensitive difficult patient.
