Meet Dr. Keckley
Dr. Jason Keckley served his Country in the United States Marine Corps from 1998 to 2002. Shortly after being honorably discharged from the Marines, he attended San Diego State University and graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Cellular and Molecular Biology. Dr. Keckley then went on to receive his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Midwestern University in 2012. Committed to furthering his dental knowledge, Dr. Keckley has continued his education with private courses in the areas of dental implants, clear aligner orthodontics and sedation. He is also a licensed administrator of conscious sedation dentistry medication. He is a current member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Diego County Dental Society. Dr. Keckley is also a member of the local study club Odontic, Coronado’s Island Beer Club, and an active member of the Liverpool LFC local supporters group.
Dr. Keckley and his wife, Kristy, have been married since 2004. They reside in Downtown San Diego with their son, Declan. Outside of his time spent at the office, Dr. Keckley enjoys attending SDSU Aztec Basketball and Football games.
Dr Keckley and his entire staff are the best. After moving to San Diego, I went through 3 other dentists before moving to Coronado and giving his office a try. Will NOT go anywhere else. We have since moved to north county and I still drive to Coronado for Dr Keckley.
Service is excellent.

How to Choose the Best Dentist for You
Selecting the best dentist for your needs can play a major role in the outcome of your dental treatment. With so many options available, choosing the right dentist may seem like a daunting task. To help you with your research and the decision-making process, Dr. Keckley recommends prospective patients consider the following key questions:
- What are the dentist’s credentials?
- Is the dentist a member of any professional organizations?
- What are the dentist’s areas of specialty?
- How often does the dentist perform the procedure you are considering?
- Are there before-and-after photos of past patients you can view?
- Does the dentist have any online ratings and reviews, or patient testimonials you can read?
- How long can you expect the results of your procedure to last?
- How much will your treatment cost?
- Does the practice offer any financing options to help cover the cost of treatments and procedures?
When you are researching dentists, keep in mind that the cheapest option may not be the best option. The cost of treatment typically takes into account the experience of the dentist along with the geographic location of the practice. Patients who choose a less experienced dentist to save on the up-front cost may find that their dental work does not last as long, ultimately costing them more money over time. When you take the time to carefully research dentists in your area, we encourage you to consider your dental work an investment in the future of your smile. Choosing your dentist based upon credentials, experience, and a proven track record of results will often lead to the most satisfactory outcome.
