“Great experience. No waiting, the doctor explained everything thoroughly, gave me options, and was painless for my teeth. Painless on my checkbook too! So glad I discovered them! I will be going back.”
~ David V.
“Dr. Atanay is not there to take your money like other dentist’s do. He does great work and gives you many good recommendations. His two assistants Vanessa and Elizabeth are wonderful and make it fun to come over.”
~ Victor G.
Meet The Sunset Dental Ventura Staff
Dr. Ron Atanay
Dr. Atanay believes in living the laid back Ventura lifestyle through and through, and he proudly shows this in the relaxed atmosphere of his dental practice. Dr. Atanay is a 1982 graduate from the UCLA School of Dentistry. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Cal State Fullerton for his undergraduate studies, and also has a Radiologic Technology degree from Fullerton City College.
Dr. Atanay’s undergraduate studies in psychology have given him the understanding of a patient’s fear of the dentist. He uses this knowledge to provide you with a fear free dental experience. The doctor and his staff go above and beyond to make you feel at ease. He believes in treating people like family not just another patient.
Dr. Atanay has always been fully involved in the communities he has lived in. He enjoys investing his time into the youth programs to create a better tomorrow for our kids. He has coached youth football for 30 years, and is the founder of the La Habra Cobras youth wrestling club.
