Biography

Richard Creese, DDS, has been serving the dental needs of patients from all over the Bay Area for over 20 years at his welcoming office in the Union Square neighborhood of San Francisco, California. Having grown up in rural Michigan, Dr. Creese received his dental degree at the University of Michigan, a school continually ranked at the top of all U.S. Dental Schools. Prior to dental school, he studied chemistry and music at Central Michigan University. Upon graduation from the University of Michigan, he received oral surgery training at the Melbourne Dental Hospital in Australia, where he was introduced to their minimally invasive extraction techniques. His extensive continuing education studies primarily focus on root canals (endodontics), dentures, and other facets of cosmetics dentistry. Outside of the office, Dr. Creese enjoys playing tennis, golf, and snow skiing. When he does find time to slow down, he enjoys music, carpentry, antique clock repair, and tuning up and tooling around in a 1960 TR3 — the first car he ever owned!

    Went in, after a year without a dentist. Dr. Creese was understanding, and although my teeth and gums aren't in the best of shape, he made me feel at ease about the treatment plan he set up.

    Dr. Creese was very professional and was friendly to the regulars who were waiting in the lobby. However, I had to wait 30 min past my scheduled appointment time before being seen for 10 minutes or so for the initial oral evaluation. The office was also incredibly difficult to find so I would have appreciated some directions in the initial contact.

    My first time going to the dentist in awhile, and Dr. Creese and his staff made it a great experience. Marguerite is the best hygenist I've ever had, she really made me feel at ease and she was a joy to talk to. Highly recommend this office!

    Before this morning, I hadn’t been to a dentist in four years. I was super nervous to come back because I knew it wouldn’t be good news. I had a wonderful visit at Dr. Creese’s office, everyone was incredibly kind and welcoming! I received a thorough cleaning that I know wasn’t an easy task and Dr. Creese was kind and comforting. Great place!

    Honestly, just a really great experience overall. Dr. Creese was the most thorough dentist I’ve ever had. My previous dental visits were very quick, which I had thought was good, until I came to Dr. Creese and he and his staff meticulously checked and documented the quality of every single tooth. He found cavities that my previous dentist probably should have found too.

    Scheduled an appointment fairly last minute. Him and his office were super nice and understanding, and let me reschedule at the last minute after I missed my appointment for getting the date wrong. Dental cleaning was thorough and I really felt he cared about my health/wellbeing.
