Dr Cutler has owned TLC Escondido Dental since Dr Weigel retired in 2006. She moved the office from Hickory Street to a larger space on the corner of East Pennsylvania and Ceder in Escondido in 2013. She loves working with people and enjoys seeing generations of families at TLC. “My favorite part of dentistry, besides making beautiful smiles, is enjoying watching families grow and becoming apart of the heart of Escondido.”

Dr Cutler married in September of 2007 in Lake Tahoe. She has two beautiful boys named Blake Hayzen (after Dr Cutler’s Great Grandfather) and Gavin Michael (after his Dad and Grandfather). The boys are 15mo apart and are now 5 and 7 years old. They love playing soccer and are in swim. They have a family Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is 11 and they boys are in love with their dog Tate.

“I feel very fortunate to have a wonderful and amazing family at home and a second family at TLC Escondido Dental. We are a close knit group and I love the comradery and love we share at work. It makes coming to the dentist a fun experience for everyone. We have many patients that are very nervous to come to the dentist. Once they come for a few visits to TLC they make comments on how much fun we are and how nice it is to come to an office that is a relaxed atmosphere from the front to the back. It is the most rewarding job there is.”
