Why Choose a Family Dentist?

happy extended family at the parkChoosing a family dentist is a decision that will help your loved ones access personalized, timely, and high-quality dental care for a lifetime. You also get the convenience of having all your family members treated in the same office and by the same doctor. This makes it possible to keep clear health records of everyone’s health so the dentist can quickly identify genetic complications such as gum disease and tooth decay.

At the practice of Michael S. Tobian, DDS and Dr. Maurissa Kiefer, DDS, we treat your family with empathy and respect. We build trust by making you feel comfortable and valued so you can openly share your concerns. Our Walnut Creek family dentist welcomes you regardless of how long you have gone without treatment. Nitrous oxide is included in your treatment cost to help you and your family feel relaxed and comfortable during procedures.

Gentle Children’s Dentistry

happy little girl in dental officeWe understand that you want to do everything you can to help your kids achieve and maintain optimal oral health. As your partner in this goal, we welcome children starting at age one to come with you and sit in your lap so they can begin learning about dental cleanings and exams. Our Walnut Creek children's dental team is dedicated to teaching, monitoring, and protecting your child’s smile.

Keeping up with regular visits helps children feel comfortable and confident seeing a dentist as they grow. Dr. Tobian and Dr. Kiefer takes extra time to listen and answer questions on dental health and general oral hygiene. We also work closely with excellent specialists if your child needs advanced care, such as orthodontics.

Continuing Care for Teens

Educating your teens on the importance of regular dental hygiene is crucial to avoiding future dental complications. We provide support and encourage them to comply with dental hygiene best practices. We recommend professional cleanings at our Walnut Creek family dental practice twice a year for your teen. To ensure the best results, we use digital scanners for accurate diagnosis and treatment. If your teens are involved in sports, we offer mouthguards to prevent dental injuries.

Protecting Oral Health for Adults & Seniors

Unlike teens, adults and seniors often require different dental treatments and procedures. Dr. Tobian and Dr. Kiefer offers restorative and preventive dental care and will customize your treatment for any of the following services:

Cleanings & Exams: Dental cleanings help remove plaque, tartar, and calculus to ensure optimal oral hygiene. Regular exams will also help reduce your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease.

Laser Periodontal Care: Our team will carefully assess for periodontal disease and recommend appropriate care. We use lasers to remove damaged tissue with precision. Scaling and root planing, maintenance cleanings, and Arestin antibiotic treatment can help stop the progression of gum disease. We can schedule you with our visiting periodontist for complex treatments or refer you to a specialist, depending on the problem.

Root Canal Therapy: This treatment eliminates bacteria from the tooth roots and prevents re-infection. When this procedure is necessary, we will refer you to a specialist for root canal therapy and finish your treatment with a custom crown in our dental office.

Extractions: When any tooth causes serious problems, such as infection or severe pain, extraction could be the best solution. Our Walnut Creek family dentist will discuss your options and help you determine if extraction is right for you. If your extraction is a complex case, we will refer you to a specialist.

Mouthguards: If you suffer from teeth grinding or bruxism, we’ll recommend custom mouthguards, especially if you want to preserve the integrity of previous cosmetic dental treatments.
