Learn About Our Mill Valley Dentistry
Our dental office is proud to be as environmentally friendly as one can be in dentistry. When constructing our office, we used eco-friendly materials with no VOCs. In addition, we have installed both a Vista Clear Water System, which filters the water used in our patients' mouths, and an Amalgam Separator, which traps mercury before it enters our drains to avoid contaminating the water supply. We have no chemical waste from the development of X-rays because we use a digital system. Our ultimate goal is to have a paperless office.

We have been integrating technology to improve the services we provide for our patients.
We have the latest Omni-Cam CAD-CAM CEREC technology to fabricate porcelain restorations, such as crowns. The CEREC machine allows us to scan a tooth, design a restoration, fabricate that restoration, and finish it all during the same appointment. In addition, our Diagnodent laser technology allows us to measure the depth of the grooves on back teeth and determine if restorations are needed even before this is evident in digital X-rays. Carivu allows us to check for cavities in between teeth without exposure to radiation. Please see our technology page for more information.
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the high-quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
Our practice truly believes that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. Dr. Garcia-Rojas and her team strive to provide dental health care rather than disease care. This is why we focus on thorough exams, which means checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking X-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride all help to prevent dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications you may be taking, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control is also very important to our office. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using the standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, Dr. Garcia-Rojas and her staff want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly-trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible services and results, we are committed to continuing education. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed on new techniques, the latest products, and the contemporary equipment that allows a modern dental office to provide state-of-the-art dental care. In addition, we are members of various professional dental associations, which allows us to stay current with the changes and recommendations within our profession.
