Learn About Our Mill Valley Dentistry
Our dental office is proud to be environmentally friendly… as environmentally friendly as one can be in dentistry. When constructing our office, we used eco-friendly materials with no VOC’s. Additionally, we have installed both the Vista Clear Water System, which filters the water that is used in the patient’s mouth, and an Amalgam Separator, which traps the mercury before it goes into the drain to avoid contaminating the water supply. We have no chemical waste from developing x-rays since we use a digital system, which eliminates the need for paper as well. Our ultimate goal is to have a paperless office.

We have been integrating technology to improve the service we provide to our patients.
We have the latest Omni-Cam CAD-CAM CEREC technology to fabricate porcelain restorations including crowns. The CEREC machine allows us to scan a tooth, design a restoration, fabricate it and finish it all at the same appointment. In addition, Diagnodent laser technology allows us to measure the depth of the grooves on back teeth and determine if restorations are needed even before it is evident on the digital x-rays. Carivu allow us to check for cavities in between teeth without any exposure to radiation.
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the 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
As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. Dr. Garcia-Rojas and her team strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – 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 are all helpful in preventing 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, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using 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 service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
