General Dentistry San Francisco
General dentistry from an innovative San Francisco dentist.
I’m proud to be a San Francisco Bay Area native. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dentistry, then returned home to practice. I’ve been providing quality dental care in San Francisco’s Financial District since 1972.
Combining extensive experience in general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry with a passion for artistry, I use the most current, gentle dentistry techniques. My staff and I consult with you about common oral health problems, listen to all of your needs, answer all of your concerns, and discuss various treatment options by focusing on the optimal health of your teeth and gums.
These treatments include: examinations (including regular oral cancer exams), cleanings, X-rays (digital, therefore less radiation exposure), gum treatments, TMD therapy, root canals, cosmetic dentistry (porcelain veneers, bonding, crowns, white fillings), dentures (full and partial), implants, and other areas.
In addition, if you’re thinking of making your smile more beautiful, visit our cosmetic dentistry page.
