Dr. Peter Skuben - Your Newport Mesa Area Dentist

Dr.Peter Skuben was born in Czechoslovakia during a time when the iron curtain ran across Europe and separated communist Eastern Block from the freedom in the West. His family escaped communist Czechoslovakia when he was 10 and eventually resettled in California.


 After finishing highschool he majored in Electrical Engineering. While working for Raytheon on the Joint Strike Fighter jet F35 he learned many hight tech skills that would later become invaluable in deploying the latest dental technology.  After a few years, Dr.Skuben quit Raytheon to pursue a new career in Dentistry. 


He graduated from the University at Buffalo Dental School and immediately started taking advanced courses to expand and sharpen his skills. 


  • He traveled on a Dental Mission to Nicaragua, where he placed dental implants free of charge to the local population. 
  • He shadowed in the office of Celebrity Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman
  • He did a mentorship with world renown prosthodontist Dr. William Hung
  • Became a Diplomate of the International Academy of Dental Implantology
  • Joined the Study Club at Glidewell Laboratories (Largest Dental Lab in the world) to stay on top of the latest advancements in Dental Field.

Dental Philosophy

My goal is to provide the best patient experience with the latest dental technology in a friendly family atmosphere. Technology advances have made dentistry a very visual profession. We have: 

  • 3D X-rays where we can walk through teeth as we look for cavities, infections and bone density
  • 3D optical scanners where we can take a virtual impression of teeth without needing to place an impression paste into the mouth
  • IR laser scanners which we use to transilluminate teeth to look for cavities and cracks that are impossible to see with X-rays
  • Computerized anesthesia where a computer can numb up a tooth below the threshold of pain.
  • Fluorescence imaging that we use during hygiene appointment to screen for Oral cancer lesions
  • 3D printer for printing surgical guides for implant procedures or temporary veneers for smile evaluations

 We live in an exciting time for dentistry where a lot of new technologies are slowly crossing over from other industries. It is for this reason that I’m always attending both Dental and Dental Lab conventions several times a year to anticipate what is coming around the corner.

I invite you to stop by and chat about what the future holds for dentistry!
