Editorial review from Citysearch 12/29/2014

When I first moved to San Francisco 25 years ago, my dental insurance sent me to a dentist in the Sunset. The office was dingy, and that should have been the first clue. The dentistry they did was from the dark ages. I soon switched to Dr. Brattesani's office, which is bright and cheerful and exceptionally clean. The dentistry is top-notch. I have also had dentists in the past that wanted to do major work that they were not qualified to do. When I needed a couple of root canals, I was referred to an appropriate specialist and am very satisfied with the results. I see some other reviewers complain about prices and I say you get what you pay for. If you want to have your teeth taken care of by a dentist who is kind, knowledgeable, and up to date on modern dental practices, you should see Marina/Pac Hts. Dental Care. Once I got my mouth into good shape, I have only really needed every six month cleanings and have never been ""up-sold"" on dental work I did not need. I will never go to another dentist and I hope that he never retires! Carolyn G., M.D., San Francisco more

Great Dental Practice 1/25/2011

I have been going to Dr. Brattesani for most of a decade now, I havebeen very satisfied with the quality of my treatment. \r \r When I first went to Dr. B, I had been sort of neglecting this whole issue, hadn't been to a dentist for a while, and had some real issues.\r \r Dr. B performed a complete dental over haul; fillings, crowns and the like. Not only is it beautiful to look at but all the work has withstood thetest of time. All the work has lasted and I still have all my teeth. No mean feat at my age! \r \r Dr. Bratessani always explains what he is doing andwhy. I have actually learned quite a bit about the whole subjecty of teeth and gums, just by following along as he was working. \r \r The office has the latest in technology. There is this very cool machine that will mill a custom filling for you based on a laser scan of your tooth while you wait! It is a fascinating thing to watch.\r \r The office is also very well organized. Appointments are made, and they are kept. Waiting times are minimal.\r \r As faras I am concerned, I never have to change dentists. more

EXCELLENT Dentist & Staff! VERY professional & qualified 1/22/2011

I went in with very serious major dental issues and Dr. B was professional and kind. He worked with my insurance and my budget for co-pays, and made an excellent referral for root canals. I have had well over 30 dentists in my life and he is in the top 5. The other dentist & all the staff were kind and professional as well. The front office does a great job with scheduling appointments last minute and help you fit your visit into your busy schedule. Highly recommended! more

The best dental experience in SF 2/10/2010

Dr. Steve and Dr. Ruby are hands down the best at what they do! I have gone to Dr. Brattesani for over 10 years without issue and cannot imagine going anywhere else. Dr. Ruby sees both of our kids who I must say get totally excited about going to the dentist! They explain what is going on and have a long term plan for good dental health! All in all this dentist office is experienced, professional and brings the best of technology to the patient creating an unmatched experience. If you are looking for a dentist that will exceed your expectations look no further! Pros: professional environment, cutting edge technology more

Overpriced for their work & having an aggressive business model 8/22/2008

- Expect to pay 30% or more for any visit if compared to other reputable dentists.\r \r - Staffs and dentist are friendly but if your service ends up costing you a lot more out of pocket, it's up to you to decide.\r \r - Highly agressive in their recommedation of fixes.\r \r - Making more professional referrals than necessary. more

Excellent, Reasonable and convenient dental care 1/19/2008

Dr. Brattesani and his staff are the best dental experience I have ever had. I had major periodontal problems when I first got there, and Dr. Brattesani was able to arrest and reverse them, saving me countless of potential dental procedures which other dentists in the past wanted to do. I would high;ly recommend him and Dr. Ruby to anyone. more

Incredibly skilled, caring dental group 11/18/2007

Dr. Brattesani and team are truly dedicated to their patients. I have been in and out of many dental chairs and plan on staying in Dr. Brattesani?s chair surrounded by his talented team for a long time to come. \r \r Dr. Brattesani sets the bar for highly-skilled dentistry. He invests heavily in the latest and greatest technology and he beams with enthusiasm while explaining exactly how it will be implemented to remedy your situation. Dr Brattesani always tells you exactly what is going on?you?ll never be in the dark about what?s occurred or coming next. This approach is critical for nervous patients like me. Perhaps what?s remarkable is that I don?t feel like a patient, but a cared for old friend. \r \r Recently during routine work on a Friday late in the afternoon Dr. Brattesani discovered I needed a root canal. He called a dental colleague and arranged for the procedure to take place immediately. Dr Brattesani waited for me to return to his office from the root canal so he could finish up his work on my teeth. Dr Brattesani and his wife made sure I was 100% taken care of, staying with me until 7:30pm on a Friday night long after the office had officially closed. That?s outstanding dental care. \r \r more

High Quality Dentistry 11/6/2007

Dr. Steven Brattesani and his staff is a very high quality operation. He has a lot of the latest in Dental technology, and a lot of things he can do right in his office, without ""sending out"". \r \r Going to the office is a positive experience. The wating times are short wheni show up for my appointment and there is not that pervasive sense of cluelessness that you find in so many places. Everyone seems to know what they are doing.\r \r Dr. Brattesanis manner is colful and engaging, and he explains the dental procedures pretty well to laymen. There is never that sense of being patronized as with so many professionals. \r \r I have had some crowns and veneers put in over the last couple of years and after the procedure is complete thatere haven't been any problems. This is all high quality work, using the latest in dental technology. \r \r You could probably get it cheaper, but then the quesiton is how long would it last.? I expect to have these teeth for the rest of my life. more
