Family-Focused Dentistry

McGrady Dental Group Provides Compassionate, Comprehensive Care for All Ages

Care, commitment, and collaboration combine with experience and state-of-the-art technology to make McGrady Dental Group the perfect dental home for your family. Dr. Jodi McGrady and her husband, periodontist Dr. Michael Spilotro, care for kids and parents at the same location for a convenient, comfortable experience.

McGrady Dental Group offers the full spectrum of pediatric dental care. “From treatment with simple distraction and storytelling to conscious sedation or general anesthesia, treatment decisions are made with the parents to determine what best fits their child’s needs,” explained Dr. McGrady, who practiced general dentistry for 15 years before a two-year pediatric residency at UCLA. She’s been practicing pediatric dentistry for the last five years. The team also offers general dentistry – cleanings, fillings, and crowns – as well as periodontal care, extractions, and implants.


“When a parent comes in with a child, I want them both to feel calmand comfortable,” Dr. McGrady said. “We live and work in the Scripps-Poway community and are very dedicated to our patients.” Patients see the same dentists every time they visit. The brand-new office was built with the entire community in mind, including special needs patients, and incorporates the latest technology for sterilization, minimizing radiation, and handicap accessibility. Charging stations, iPads, televisions, a reading nook, and a tooth fairy garden create a fun, playful atmosphere for children.

“When a parent comes in with a child, I want them both to feel calm and comfortable.”

Dr. McGrady and Dr. Spilotro emphasize education and preventive care, especially for young patients, and the care continues outside the office. “Serving our community is very important to us,” Dr. McGrady shared. She and her team are involved with oral health education at three local libraries, five elementary schools, and Poway’s Boys & Girls Club. “I am involved with 1000 Smiles and treat underserved children in Ensenada, Mexico,” Dr. McGrady added. “I’m also on the staff at Rady Children’s Hospital once a week, involved in the care of children who are medically compromised or on the autism spectrum. I enjoy caring for these kids, who are society’s most fragile children.”

That caring spirit is the heart of McGrady Dental Group. Learn more about the McGrady Dental family at
