Daniel R. Pestana, DDS provides a complete range of cosmetic dentistry services for all types of patients (including children) at his Walnut Creek facility. In addition to handling routine procedures like crowns, fillings and root canals, Dr. Pestana has special expertise with full-mouth rehabilitations—a specialized area of implant dentistry that helps people with missing teeth return to their normal eating habits and improve their quality of life.

Dr. Pestana says his patient-oriented approach to dental care has been an important aspect of his practice’s success. “Some dentists recommend certain treatments yet don’t explain why they’re necessary, but I never push procedures that my patients don’t need. My goal is to provide preventative care that maximizes the health of every person who visits our office.”

Dr. Pestana’s practice communicates with patients throughout each step of their dental procedures so they know what to expect. “We sincerely look forward to seeing our patients and answering their questions, and they really appreciate that because it lets them know they’re receiving the best possible care,” he says. “Regardless of the type of dental work they need, we treat them with warmth and respect.”

Company Philosophy

“We genuinely care about our patients and their health, so we always treat them like family and communicate clearly to make sure their needs are being met. By taking a compassionate, educational approach to dental care, we’re able to help each patient feel more comfortable with the process.”
