Dr. Doreen Toy, DDS
Born and raised in the Bay Area, I received a degree in Biology at San Jose State University and afterwards finished dental school at the University of the Pacific in SF.
I am married and have two little boys. We moved away from San Francisco after 10 years of living in the city because our adorable 1-bedroom apartment was just a little too small for our family of four.
Family is very important to me. I look forward to my Fridays off, when I get “time in” with my youngest in the morning and we pick up food for my oldest and meet him at school for lunch. We have extended family dinners twice a week; we are really lucky and both grandmas are awesome chefs. In my spare time I enjoy photography, eating out, and playing video games.
As a dentist, my background is in public health — I enjoy working with kids, adults, and the elderly.
I have a lot of experience working with teeth that are severely compromised and have seen teeth in almost every state imaginable. I strongly believe that dental decay and gum disease are largely preventable and try very hard to educate patients so we can stabilize existing disease and hopefully prevent future problems.
In general, I tend to be very conservative in my treatment recommendations.
I believe that every person is different and special. Everyone should be comfortable and informed when they make decisions regarding their health and their body. It is important to me that each patient is ready for the treatment before we begin.
Is there something else you would like to know about? Come in, hang out, and chat for a while. Feel free to set up a consultation and put in the notes that you just want to say “Hi!” — I would be glad to meet you.
Liz will schedule your appointments, keep your file up-to-date, and take care of your insurance claims. You will always be informed on the insurance coverage for each dental treatment, no surprises.
