San Mateo Dental Services

We are committed to providing patients with quality dental care that includes cosmetic dentistry services for a beautiful, renewed smile. We offer a wide range of treatment options for correcting oral health problems and restoring your smile’s healthy appearance:

Dental implants
Porcelain veneers
Porcelain crowns
Fixed bridges
• Dentures
• Invisalign®
Teeth whitening
Tooth-colored fillings
• In-office master ceramist

Dr. Kinsel is particularly dedicated to CAMBRA (CAries Management By Risk Assessment), which is a breakthrough method of assessing a patient’s risk for developing cavities. Individual risk factors, such as decay history, diet and oral hygiene habits, are taken into consideration, and treatment recommendations are made accordingly. This is a revolutionary change in approach, because the focus is not solely on fixing cavities but also on the pre-cavity stage, using treatments to reduce risks. Patients are not all treated the same -- instead, each individual environment informs the treatment strategies that are used.

Our Commitment to Excellence in Oral Health

Dr. Kinsel has over 35 years of experience in private practice and academics. He is an Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco, School of Dentistry, an editorial review committee member of the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants, a Fellow of the International Team for Implantology, and member of the American Prosthodontic Society.
