Cosmetic Dentistry

More people today are aware and concerned over the cosmetic look of their teeth and smile. Dentistry works to keep the overall health of your teeth and mouth at their best. Additionally, we can help with the cosmetic (appearance) aspect of your teeth. Whether it's whitening your teeth, straightening a crooked tooth or shaping up misalignments with Invisalign™, or fixing broken or missing teeth with veneers or implants, our goal is to have you look and feel your best.

Please call us for a general consultation on your concerns. With one appointment, we can work on a plan that will help you achieve your desired results.

Cancellation

If you are unable to keep an appointment, kindly provide us with at least 24 hours notice. We ask for this advance notice so that we can offer this appointment to another patient. A fee may be charged if a patient does not show up for an appointment without sufficient notice.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your dental care.

Facility

We are proud to provide a state-of-the-art facility and the highest quality dental care available. Our priority is to protect the well-being of our valued patients.

We are confident that you will feel at home in our office: We welcome all patients as if they were family.

Invisalign™

Invisalign™ is a patented proprietary system that uses 3D modeling software and cutting-edge manufacturing technology to provide a clear, removable solution for straightening teeth. Invisalign™ is effective at treating a wide variety of orthodontic issues including: crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, deep bite, open bite

Invisalign™ was designed by leading orthodontists and is FDA–cleared. Invisalign™ has been used by over 1,000,000 patients worldwide. In today's busy and aesthetically-conscious world, many patients prefer Invisalign's™ clear and removable orthodontic solution to that of traditional brackets and wires.

Dr. D.S. Tanita, DDS

Education

Undergraduate / Seattle Pacific University
DDS degree / University of the Pacific School of Dentistry

Dr. Tanita received his degree from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco and completed advanced training in Occlusion, TMJ disorders and Complex Restorative Procedures at the L.D. Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida.

He also received training in Cosmetic Dentistry at the University of California, San Francisco, with Dr. Harry Albers.

A member of several professional organizations and societies, Dr. Tanita is also an active volunteer in his West Contra Costa County community, where he supports an annual Free Dental Clinic for low-income children and serves as a volunteer director at the Brookside Community Dental Clinic.

An active member of the Richmond Rotary Club, in March 2007 Dr. Tanita hosted a group of Russian dental professionals through the Rotary's Productivity Enhancement Program (PEP).

“What PEP does is important for U.S.—Russian relations,” says Dr. Tanita of the program. “PEP has a unique function in training thousands of individual business owners to learn entrepreneurship at a grassroots level. Those entrepreneurs then take their new ideas and their enthusiasm back to Russia, where they grow their businesses and, in turn, stimulate the businesses and profession in their community to do better by learning new ideas.”

A native of Arizona, Dr. Tanita enjoys living with his family in the San Francisco Bay Area where he has spent the past 30 years.
