Your family dentist in San Francisco, CA
Dental care with a distinctive differenceThere seems to be a trend in modern dental and medical care, and it is one we refuse to follow. In some offices, people are rushed through, diagnosis and treatment plans are made according to medical charts and machines, the patients are pressured to comply, yet their concerns are not heard. We hear it over and over again, people are tired of being treated like numbers or machines.
Here at West Portal Family Dentistry, we take a very different approach. We practice patient-centered dental care. That means our practice does not revolve around schedules, machines, and teeth. It revolves around you, the human being sitting in the dental chair.
You will notice the difference in every aspect of our practice. When you walk through the door, you will feel at home in the inviting and comfortably furnished reception area. However, you won’t be there very long, because we manage our schedule to minimize wait times.
We are here to welcome the first tooth, cheer kids on as they learn oral hygiene, and guide the development of adult teeth. When the exuberance of adolescence leads to oral injuries, we are here with emergency dentistry. As time goes on and teeth begin darkening, we are here to whiten them. If medical conditions endanger oral health, we create a tailored dental care plan to protect it, and if a tooth is lost, we have premier options to replace it. Throughout your life, we are your partners in oral health.
The convenience of comprehensive careYou have a busy schedule to keep up with, and a life to live. You don’t have time to drive all over town to different appointments at different dental offices. Yet, you also have a family with diverse oral health needs. We understand, and that is why we offer a full range of services in one convenient location.
Expertise and dedication to excellenceWe use premier materials and state of the art technology, but our supplies and equipment are not what truly sets us apart from the rest. That distinction belongs to our team, the people behind the perfect smiles.
