Welcome to our practice website. We congratulate you on taking the first step toward better periodontal health. At Casey M. Herrera, DDS your health is our first priority. Please utilize this website as a resource. It will help you better understand your course of treatment and answer any questions related to periodontal therapy.

Dr. Herrera is a specialist in periodontics. We specialize in conservative and surgical treatment of gum disease including cosmetic procedures to aesthetically enhance your smile. Dr. Herrera is an expert in gum grafting for recession. 

Although no one likes to go to the doctor or dentist, we strive to make your visits with us as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We strongly believe that our patient’s comfort is an important part of quality dental care. What you may have heard about periodontal treatment is not what we experience. Most of our patients have little or no discomfort after surgical procedures due to microsurgical, gentle techniques, long acting anesthetics and non narcotic pain medications. 

Dr. Herrera believes that your right to choose a periodontist is an important freedom. We work closely with your dentist, but a referral by a dentist is not required to visit our office. We also welcome referrals from patients and friends of the practice.  Many of our patients are referred by satisfied patients who refer their family and friends.  

We are extraordinarily proud of our staff, which is comprised of caring, compassionate, kind and dedicated professionals. They ensure that the patient’s treatment and administrative needs are met as efficiently and smoothly as possible.

Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. We are here to listen to your questions and concerns and to help provide solutions leading to your better health. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding your care. Our phone number is 650-556-9999 and our fax number is 650-556-9990.

We look forward to meeting you!!

What is a periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.

The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three years of additional education beyond dental school.

By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease tailored to your needs. In addition, Dr. Herrera can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.
