Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Marta C. from Colma, CA (Source: Yelp)


The first time I saw Dr. Loev – over ten years ago – was as a second opinion to a dentist I had initially seen, who I felt was not attentive to my needs and wanted to do a couple of teeth extractions. Dr. Loev took the time to make a proper diagnosis, which did not include any teeth extractions. I was very happy with my treatment, and have not had an issue to this day. I’ve been seeing Dr. Loev ever since for all my dental needs. I feel he truly cares about his patients and about giving them the best treatment. His staff is fantastic, very professional, attentive and organized. I’m always welcomed with a smile, and have never had an issue with payments or paperwork. I’ve recommended many of my friends and family to see Dr. Loev, and everyone has the same opinion: Dr. Loev is an awesome dentist!

I had a dental emergency this morning. I called Dr.Loev’s office and spoke with Theresa the receptionist. She was amazing and worked with me to get me in to the office as soon as possible. Dr Loev and his staff took great care of me and even arranged for me to get a teeth cleaning. I have not been to the dentist in a while and was fearful about going. But Dr. Loev and his staff were so kind that I have finally lost my fear of dentists!!!!

Twenty-five years ago I moved to SF and had to pick a dentist. I have a phobia about dentists, so when I saw Dr. “Loev” I immediately thought it was a sign that maybe this whole experience wouldn’t be too bad!… and I was right! Dr. Loev and his incredible staff are fabulous! They not only have the highest credentials and do amazing professional work, but they have fantastic people skills to deal with high maintenance cases like me! They listen to me; they work with me; they respect me, and they get the job done with ease and humor! Whether you need routine work or major dental work, you will not regret coming to this group.

A lot of dentists have really great ZocDoc ratings but are not so great in person. Dr. Loev is the complete opposite of that – he gave me a thorough exam, prepared a treatment plan and his office had a quote to me 5 minutes after I was out of the door for what my out of pocket cost would be for the plan. Dr. Loev and everyone in his office had amazing bedside manner and unlike the last dentist I went to on ZocDoc years ago never tried to up-sell me to whitening or anything else. Cant recommend Dr. Loev enough! 

Stella N. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Loev and his staff are amazing!! I came to this office half year ago and I knew that I have to do a major work. I am one of those patients who is afraid to go to the dentist but not with dr. Loev. I always want to smile when leave his office. I feel So welcome every time I come in for my appointment. The staff is very friendly. Special thanks to miss Beth who is assisting dr Loev. Miss Oleina who takes care of the booking and billing. I am very happy that I made a stop at this office the other day and found one of my favorite doc.!
Thank you!!!

Julia T. from Hayward, CA (Source: Yelp)


I met Dr. Loev a few months ago for teeth whitening and he took his time to explain the issues with some issues with sensitivity and cavities I was having. He got a treatment plan set up for me and was so nice! I’m so glad I found his office and I look forward to going back to him. His office staff is very friendly and organized as well. And his office is NICE!!! Thank you Dr. Loev!

Jon A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Loev and his team are highly experienced and offer best-in-class service. While they are able to offer efficient and exact execution of specialized structural and cosmetic procedures, the practice is governed by a “what’s best for the patient” ethos. In particular, Dr. Jain is among the best dental professionals with whom I’ve worked in my extensive history. Confident, reposed, precise (as well as a pleasant conversationalist) are all traits Dr. Jain exhibits for regular and procedural visits. I cannot recommend Dr. Loev and Dr. Jain highly enough.

I don’t always have a regular doctor but wherever I live I make sure I have a superlative dentist. I was referred to Dr. Loev by one of his colleagues from Boston. Everybody that works in that office is a professional but I see Dr. Heinic every 6 months like clockwork. I’ve never missed an appointment and I’ve never had a cavity. He’s thorough as if they were his own teeth and I can’t imagine there’s a better dentist in all of San Francisco.

Stephanie Leifer (Source: Google)


This place is the BEST. The nicest people, and a really pleasant experience–always! I didn’t go to the dentist for a long time because I found that they were always trying to upsell me on dental procedures, which is just the worst. (Really? Selling unnecessary medical work? Awful.) But never in Dr. Loev’s office! I’ve referred a number of friends & family, and they agree. This place is a GEM! Stop putting it off and just GO. They’ll take care of you.

C. from Marin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I decided to break my Yelp cherry. So I have a MOJO HUGE fear of dentist.  Kind of like a ‘killer clown” fear and I have not been to a dentist in 8 or 9 years.  Also, to be fair in this review, I have yet to go see Dr Loev. However, 5 stars right now based soley on his support staff. I broke a tooth yesterday and all my worst fears have come true.  I need to see a dentist and there is no way to wessel out of it this time.  It just plain hurts. Melissa, at Dr. Loev’s office, has been amazingly kind and warm in putting my fears aside.  And if Dr. Loev work is half as good as his staff is kind, maybe it won’t be that bad….  Will update.

Janice L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


If anyone is searching for a great dentist, it would be Dr. Loev!  He is gentle, passionate about his work, and cares about your teeth.  He has a great staff – Melissa, Elizabeth, Elena, and Tessie.  He also has the best Dentist, Dr. Heinic who cleans my teeth with perfection.  You will see, having work done on your teeth by Dr. Loev and Dr. Heinic is painless and satisfying.  I’ve been a happy patient for over 17 years and would highly recommend you going to Dr. Loev’s practice for a bigger and brighter smile.

Eric V. from San Lorenzo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Love for the past couple of years.  First I like to say Dr. Loev is one of  the most warm and wonderful person I have encountered in my walk through life always in an upbeat spirit and glad to see you.  His staff is friendly, competent and attentive to your needs as a client.  Then there is Dr. Jain also the most wonderful, friendly and caring dentist I have encountered.  She shows great concern for the patient’s health and goes out of her way to insure the patient is always comfortable when undergoing any dentistry procedure.  Dr. Love and Dr. Jain are true professionals with a most caring and positive attitude.  I am a very happy and satisfied customer as a result of my positive experiences while in that office.

Ron L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Loev for almost 20 years. The entire staff is professional, competent and respectful of my time. Unlike other dentists, I never get the feeling that they recommend procedures that are not necessary for my health and welfare. Dr Heinic has been cleaning my teeth for over ten years. I know it sounds odd, but I actually have them cleaned several times a year because I believe it keeps my gums and teeth healthier and prevents the need for other types of procedures. Plus, Dr. Heinic is a hoot. In short, I trust them and recommend them very highly.

Michelle H. from Portland, OR (Source: Yelp)


After my experience with my last dentist (see my reviews), I was hesitant to go to one. Dentures were starting to sound like a good idea. And then I stumbled across a review for Dr. Loev. When I made the appointment, I let them know about my previous experience and that I was looking for a kind, sensitive, gentle dentist. Well, that’s exactly what I found. From the moment I walked in, it was like being at home. Melissa and Olena were incredibly welcoming as was the entire staff. They’d all been prepped that I could be a potential basket case but they certainly didn’t treat me like one. In all, 3 people had their hands in my mouth and all were gentle. So gentle that when Dr. Loev said I should probably have an old filling replaced, I jumped at the chance to do it the next day. Just as I had hoped, he was thorough, gentle, and patted my elbow a couple of times just to make sure I was ok. I’d definitely recommend Dr. Loev and his staff to anyone, especially to basket cases like me with an irrational (or justified) fear of dentists.

Cris I. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jain at Dr. Ed Loev’s dental office cleaned my teeth in September 2012 and this March 2013. It may sound anachronistic to say that it’s a wonderful visit, but it was. She was most pleasant. The one hour session went so fast as we discussed the world, anecdotes from travels in the East, a forthcoming Paris adventure, and, oh, show how to brush my teeth properly so I’ll reduce damage to the gums, increase tongue hygiene, and the best toothpaste and mouthwash in the market to use that’ll do the least damage to the human body. I can’t say that I’d before looked forward to my next dental cleaning. This time, I’ve marked September on my calendar, when my mouth will be the subject of yet the next mystery topic of interest. This is a five star experience!

Went for the first time for x-rays, exam, and impressions for teeth whitening trays. After exam, Dr. Loev gave me advice on things I should consider having done (like a crown and cleaning) but did not give me the hard up-sell, which I appreciated. Staff was very friendly and courteous.

Khaoula B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Compassion and competence. I have rarely (if ever) encountered a doctor with the same level of integrity as Dr Loev. He actually really cares. I went for a consultation for veneers. I expected a 15 min chat about options. It went to two 2 hour sessions where Dr. Loev took the time to really analyze my case. Even took it a step further to take an impression done at the lab. He wants to ensure that any selected procedure is right. Any dentist jumps at the opportunity to sell you up on veneers – it’s the opposite. He understands the physical emotional and financial investment involved and wants you to select a solution that actually works for you not one that’s expensive. I frankly am so warmed by his kindness and impressed by his expertise. Many thanks to Elizabeth who was an integral part of this process.

I always give Dr. Loev and his office five stars because they do an amazing job. Not only are they thorough in cleaning and checking the health of my teeth and mouth, but they have amazing customer service. Every single one of the staff does an incredible job working on my teeth and making me feel comfortable and relaxed. I wouldn’t go to another dentist!

Kevin Mccracken (Source: Google)


I had to get deep cleaning done, due to my lack of care for my teeth. Dr. Leon did the cleaning and took great care of me. It was virtually painless. My fear of dentists if officially gone thanks to Dr. Loev and his staff! The admin staff was also amazing, making sure I know when my appointment time and date were, and sending me a detailed dental plan with all out of pocket costs, plus they gave me a $60 office credit. Really friendly service all the way around.

Jill J. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Loev, Dr. Heinic, Dr. Pina and the staff are all wonderful people. They’re very personable, professional and cares so much about their patient. Dr. Loev never pushes anything that’s not absolutely necessary. and he stayed late to help me fix a fallen filling in an emergency. Dr. Heinic made some room in his busy schedule so that I didn’t have to make 2 separate appointments, and he also very patiently taught me how to maintain a healthy gum. Dr. Pina had great bedside manner as well, she did the deep cleaning to me and I didn’t feel much pain at all. I love Shanti at the front desk, she followed up with me to make sure I was doing well the next day, and she did a great job figuring out coverage of my insurance and explained all line items to me in a clear and concise manner. I highly recommend Dr. Loev and team.

Susan J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


The first time in the waiting room I was impressed by the congenial atmosphere- everyone who waltzed in the door had a smile on their face and exchanged greetings more like friends than patients usually do. Everyone who works there is kind and wonderfully helpful, and the good doctor is my favorite dentist ever! I wish I had found him years ago. He performed the same procedures far better (and for less!) than my previous two, make that three, dentists did. And the cleaning results were better than ever as well. I am looking forward to returning in four months to prove to them all that I finally purchased an electric toothbrush and have flossed everyday in order to do my part in maintaining the excellent results they have provided me.

Nobody ever likes going to the dentist. I’ve been going to the dentist since I was 3 years old, I’m 58 now and I still hate it. I’ve had my share of dentists from the West Coast to the East Coast and many points in between. By far, Dr. Loev is the best! He knows what he’s doing — he keeps up with all of the newest techniques and technology. He’s also a sweetheart – a joy to talk with. And , no, he doesn’t expect you to talk with his hands in your mouth. Instead of ruining my day, an appointment with Dr. Loev makes my day. And, his colleagues and staff are so kind and professional. Visiting Dr. Loev’s office is a splendid experience.

I absolutely Loev’d my experience here!! I am generally a pretty tough person, but when it comes to gtting dental work done, I would much rather give birth to triplets. However, my experience was a great one. They all listened to my concerns/fears and made me feel safe and well taken care of. My teeth are straight and I Loev my new smile!!!!!

Dave C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


2 years ago I came back to Dr Loev’s practice after a 5 year hiatus because he’s the best. I see Dr Jain on a regular basis and it’s almost spa-like the way my cleanings are carried out. She has a great attention to detail and my teeth are very well taken care of. Everyone in the office is super friendly, they take the time to get to know their patients and it’s always nice talking to the people there.

Stephanie C. from San Rafael, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very organized and well run office.  I came to this office for a teeth whitening package. I worked mostly with Elizabeth, who fitted me with the molds and then instructed me how to use the teeth whitening trays.  She was very thorough and complete, and she was very gentle with the fitting.  Dr. Loev was friendly and thorough; he did not force me to do any unnecessary procedures since he knew I already had a dentist.  I would definitely return here if I need another dentist in the future.

C. T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Loev for almost 17 years now.  We like the fact that we can see him for preventive care, as well as tooth emergencies.  He genuinely cares (and I can’t say this enough) about our well-being and will see to it that we are comfortable with the work he’s done until the end, whether it’s a dental filling, new crown, night guard, teeth whitening, or even making sure we are referred to a great endodontist for a root canal. Beth is the backbone of the dental office. I can’t imagine Dr. Loev without Beth by his side.  The work that they do together is unparalleled.  Her work is thorough, clean, and most of all very gentle.  She is super smart, very comforting, and gives the best advice on how to care for your teeth, which is why I always look forward to getting my dental work done with her.  Tess is also my favorite dental assistant and I appreciate her sweet demeanor. Much kudos to Dr. Heinic as well.  He is super sweet and funny, but more importantly, he is gentle and will not lecture you about your teeth.  I like the fact that he is able to assess potential issues with your teeth, which gives me adequate time to plan for future dental work. If you have any concerns about insurance coverage and how much it would cost you, you can request for their office to check your insurance company and they will provide you with an estimate. Overall, if you are looking for a dental office that will treat you like family, then this is the place for you.

Katherine K. from Concord, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Loev and his staff for years now and only have good things to say.  I was surprised to read some negative comments about administrative staff, as I have only ever found them to be polite, professional, and accommodating. I recently saw Dr. Jain for the second time, and I would particularly recommend her.  In addition to a thorough cleaning and examination with zero discomfort, she was extremely generous in sharing information and insights into oral heath more generally.  For anyone interested in holistic approaches, you should definitely try working with her. Colleagues whom I’ve referred to Dr. Loev’s office were as happy with their experiences as I have been.

Karla A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Really nice and clean place! i like how the place is small so I feel really comfy and cozy. When you go inside you feel like your in a nice living room. I like how there’s not a lot of people waiting since is with appointment only. Also everyone is really friendly and nice, the dentist was so gentle doing the work honestly the best dentist and service I have ever had. My sister recommend me this place and I’m so happy I found a place I really like. I really recommend this place!.

Megan Schroeder (Source: Google)


Although I hate going to the dentist, Dr. Loev and Heinic do their best to make it tolerable. They check in with me frequently on how I am doing during cleaning or getting a filling and provide as much comfort as possible during the process. They are always on time and very quick in contacting me back about scheduling an appointment. I also like how I can make and reschedule appointments online as I am bad with contacting people by phone.

J. B. from Santa Rosa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Loev and his staff are absolutely wonderful.  I am a phobic patient and the team there goes out of their way to ensure I’m feeling comfortable.  Beth is fantastic in working with me as well as Dr. Heinic who is quite funny also. Always makes me laugh. I highly recommend Dr. Loev and team. They’re proactive in treatment but don’t make you feel bad about yourself like some previous experiences I’ve had elsewhere.  They explain everything clearly and give you options.  I’ve seen his restorative work as well and it’s top-notch.  I consider them to be the best in San Francisco.

David K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Loev’s for about a year now and everyone at Dr. Loev’s office has been great! They were really patient with my reschedules as I struggled to find a time that worked for me for my last appointment. I typically enjoy going to the dentist as I think dental hygiene is extremely important, so I am always excited for my visit knowing the staff is super friendly, atmosphere is comfortable and I will leave with a better smile. Thanks Dr. Loev & Team!

Scott L. from Larkspur, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Loev since 2007 and I could not be any happier with my dentists. I used to have some anxiety about going to the dentist. I can report now that I feel none of that, and a little part of me actually looks forward to it. Dr. Heinic, who cleans my teeth 3-4 times a year, always greets me with a smile, a hearty hello and an offer of a glass of water. He uses state-of-the-art cleaning equipment, knows where my sensitive spots are, encourages and educates me on keeping my teeth healthy, and generally has me out of there in less than an hour. Dr. Loev is a professional’s professional who has handled a couple of heavier dental issues with skill, caring and personal warmth. Most recently I had a cosmetic procedure with Beth, who had deep experience in this particular procedure and delivered results better than I’d hoped. I also appreciate that Dr. Loev’s team is aggressive in fighting for my maximum benefits from my insurance company. This is the best dental team I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

I would highly reccomend Dr. Loev to anyone looking for a dentist! Everyone at this dentist office is friendly and professional. This was my first visit I got fitted for teeth whitening trays, x-rays, exam, and a teeth cleaning. At my request, they started my appointment early allowing me to leave early. Dr. Loev walked me through every step of what he was doing and why. Beth answered every question I had and Nicole performed a painless teeth cleaning, which I’ve never experienced before. They contacted my insurance during my appointemnt so when I was done I had a breakdown of what I would owe for different future services, which they never pressured me into getting.

Dr. Loev runs a highly professional and well–organized office. He provides first-class dentistry, combining advanced skills with a warm, patient-friendly touch. Routine maintenance and cleaning is handled by other dentists who do a perfectly good job. Having compared different dentists who come highly recommended, Dr. Loev’s prices are competitive and sometimes lower.

Ron L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Loev runs a great operation. I have been going to his office for over two decades and he does good work. Today he replaced a filling that had fallen out while I was there for a routine checkup – quickly and painlessly. Dr. Heinic is both competent and empathetic. I genuinely enjoy going to get my teeth cleaned. I do so more frequently than most which has led to better results over time (better gum health, almost no cavities, etc.). I recommend the practice wholeheartedly.


Dr. Edward Loev has been practicing the art of dentistry since 1969 and continues to provide the finest quality dental care to San Francisco residents. He attended Penn State University for his undergraduate degree and University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine where he earned his DMD (Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry). Dr. Loev graduated from Dental School during the Vietnam conflict and decided to serve his country as a dental officer in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corp. During his three years of service he was mostly based off the coast of Vietnam and in Okinawa. Dr. Loev visited California as a young man prior to entering dental school and loved it, often dreaming of returning. The military facilitated his dream and his final duty post was on Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay. While remaining in the Naval reserves he moved to San Francisco and established a thriving downtown practice in the 450 Sutter Medical Building in the Union Square/ Financial district. Dr. Loev very much enjoyed caring for his patients and after 15 years of general practice was introduced to the enticing and advancing art of cosmetic dentistry. He quickly became obsessed with "smile design," and transforming patients smiles and in some cases their whole lives through cosmetic dentistry. While still committed to maintaining his comprehensive dental practice he has focused and continues to focus a significant part of his time on staying at the forefront of dental technology and attends many continuing education courses to allow him to create and maintain beautiful smiles. He and his team welcome your inquiries and visits to our skyscraper office overlooking San Francisco Bay and Union Square. Even after more than 42 years of caring for people, and their smiles, Dr. Loev embraces dentistry and the increasingly innovative dental techniques available. Dr. Loev's goal is to exceed his patients' expectations of care and service. In striving to obtain his goal Dr. Loev has brought together a great team of individuals who share his passion, and he has updated his office with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure his patients receive more options, more comfort, and more service.
