Dentist in Foster City, CA - Dr. Richard P. Kinsel
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the smile is its expression.
Welcome to Peninsula Dental-Facial Esthetics. Our website is designed to answer your questions or concerns about cosmetic and restorative dentistry, dental implants, and dentures. When you visit our Foster City dental office, you will find a comfortable environment and a friendly staff. Dr. Kinsel answers your questions from a high degree of experience and expertise; we want each and every patient to feel fully informed about treatment options.
It is my pleasure to announce that I will be relocating and joining Dr. Robert Choi's dental practice at a brand new, beautiful, state-of-the-art facility less than 1 mile from our present office at San Mateo Mariners Island. Dr. Choi and I have known each other for many years. We both graduated from the University of the Pacific dental school and share the same philosophy in treatment care to provide the most up-to-date dental services in a comfortable, welcoming environment.
By combining our practices, you will receive a more comprehensive set of services from our 72 years of combined experience, as well as our team of in-house specialists in orthodontics, endodontics (root canal treatment), and sedation dentistry. We are excited about this new venture and are looking forward to seeing you starting December 3, 2018.
The office address is 675 Mariners Island, Suite 101, San Mateo CA 94404. The phone number remains 650-573-8262.
Richard Kinsel DDS
Foster City 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
• 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.
Dr. Kinsel wants you to feel confident about your smile, so he offers a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures, correcting discoloration and stains to crooked, damaged and decayed teeth. We accept CareCredit and extended financial arrangements for more complex cases. Contact our Foster City dental team to schedule an appointment.
