Can a San Francisco Dentist help?
Dentists in San Francisco diagnose and treat problems with teeth, gums and tissues in the mouth.

Dentists perform dental surgery on gums and supporting bones to treat gum disease. They remove tooth decay, fill cavities, place protective sealants on children's teeth, straighten teeth, repair fractured teeth and provide dental care. San Francisco Dentists extract teeth and make models and measurements for dentures to replace missing teeth.

How are Dentists licensed?
Licensed Dentists in San Francisco have generally completed 3 or more years of undergraduate education plus 4 years of dental school and have passed the National Board Dental Exams. State licensing boards then require professionals to pass state licensing exams in order to practice in general dentistry. Additional post-graduate training is required to become a San Francisco dental specialist, such as an orthodontist, periodontist or oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
