Daniel B. Armistead, DDS Comparative Summary

Maintaining patient satisfaction is a crucial aspect of any dental practice, but it’s even more important for dentists who have earned the prestigious Diamond Certified award. For Daniel B. Armistead, DDS, the key to achieving and maintaining high levels of patient satisfaction is simple: treat every person who visits his Palo Alto office with respect and focus all his efforts on ensuring their comfort. “My staff and I are dedicated to helping our patients any way we can,” says Dr. Armistead. “We always put their needs first, and they really appreciate that.”

Dr. Armistead’s practice has been providing general dentistry services for adults and older children since 1978. In addition to performing preventive, restorative and cosmetic dental procedures that include hygiene cleanings, fillings, teeth whitening, crowns, root canals and tooth extractions, the practice has special expertise with treating sleep apnea and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) syndrome.

Unlike less experienced dental practices that participate in the minimal amount of continuing education required by law, Dr. Armistead and his staff pride themselves on also keeping up with the latest advancements in dental treatments so they can offer their patients the best options. “For example, I’m part of a dental implant study club because I believe dental implants are one of the most important products available on the market today,” says Dr. Armistead. “Implants are becoming more affordable, which means more patients are considering them, but there’s also a lot of misinformation out there, so it’s important for us to educate them about the right products and techniques.”

Another distinguishing feature of Daniel B. Armistead, DDS is its longstanding presence in Santa Clara County, which Dr. Armistead says has been important for establishing trust with patients. “We’ve been at our current location for more than 30 years, which says a lot about the quality of our practice. Our patients depend on us to provide professional, pain-free dental work, and they know that’s exactly what they’re going to get.”
