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

Tammy W. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would give more than 5 stars if I could. I have always been scared of the dentist due to a bad childhood experience so when it came time for me to find on for a root canal I was terrified. I came to Serenity dental for that root canal and left in happy tears. I was numbed with just a shot and felt nothing before during and after even when the numbing wore completely off. Didn’t even take the prescribed medication. Today I had a wisdom tooth pulled and it was the same thing. Some may say I have a high pain tolerance, which I definitely do not, but I truly believe that it depends on the dentist that you have that determines what kind of experience you have. Dr. Vildermon Manaza is amazing and I highly recommend him for any dental work you may need from minor to major.

Extremely professional, compassionate and informative. I have been visiting Dr. Alex Vilderman and his team for over 20 years. They will put your mind and your teeth at ease for all of your procedures and dental needs. Their office has all of the latest hi-tech dental equipment, and they accept many insurance plans. I highly recommend this establishment for all of your dental needs. Linda at the front desk deserves 5 stars of her own.

Alexander S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Loved this place. I came to Innovative Dental for implants treatment and was extremely satisfied with results. Professionalism and dedication of Doctor Alexander Vilderman and his staff members are beyond all praise. From the beginning Doctor Vilderman clearly explains whole treatment process, so you will have a good understanding of each step. I would strongly recommend Innovative Dental to anybody considering implant treatment in San Francisco Bay Area.

Rebekah M. from Fremont, CA (Source: Yelp)


My Husband and I have been going to Dr. Alex Vilderman since they were located at the corner of Geary and Masonic and followed them to their location on Webster Street. We have our teeth cleaned and having extensive dental work done all pain free. We are always  treated in a very professional and courteous manner, the office staff is awesome and keeps us well informed of our appointment, the dental assistance’s  are very detailed and caring just as Dr. Vilderman. Knowing that we have to go to the Dentist at least twice a year going to Innovative Dental makes these appointment easier to keep. We highly recommend Innovative Dental Office they are up to date with newest equipment and technology.You won’t be disappointed.

Michell S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Five stars office all the way. Just moved to the area so i was looking for a new dentist. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Alex so i decided to give him a try. The most stress free dentist visit I’ve had in years. To top it off this office is brand new so it’s pleasant to be in the chair. I didn’t have my dental insurance card (just switched jobs), so i told the girl at the front desk my provider and she took care of the rest. Glad I found this place, especially Dr. Alex. He told me exactly what i need and nothing more, basically skipping the “fluff”. If you’re looking for a dentist in SF i recommend this place!

Natalie K. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have recently visited Dr.Vilderman for some well needed dental care. We both hate anyone working on our teeth. But Dr. Vilderman and his staff were different from past dentists we have seen. For starters, no long waiting to be seen – our appointment times were met without delay. Once in, we were both impressed with the service, professionalism and personal touch Dr. Vilderman and his staff offered. And the cosmetic work my husband received was truly awesome. He has never been so happy to smile again! The new office looks amazing!

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


I’ve been coming to Innovative Dental for a couple of years and I have been a client of Dr. Vilderman and Dr. Alex. Both have been great! I have had from cleaning, fillings to wisdom teeth extractions. I actually had 2 wisdom teeth extraction and 2 fillings a few days ago (all done in one day or to be precise one hour), it was completely painless. Dr. Alex and his dental assistant (forgot her name, sorry) was great and fully explained everything. The recovery has been smooth, no pain and I only had to take one painkiller, no swelling. I truly appreciate the good service and friendliness. Front desk was attentive and Daisy was very friendly. Thank you to the Innovative Dental Team!

Frank D. from Pacifica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vilderman was so gentle and quick in pulling my wisdom tooth that it was over before I knew it. His staff is very professional, efficient, and comforting. I didn’t think it could be possible to have  a positive experience in having a tooth pulled, yet they managed to accomplish just that. I would highly recommend Innovative Dental to anyone who wants a clean, painless, and positive experience! Thank you guys!

Nicole B. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


My first visit here was great! Wait, are we still talking about a dentist? Yes. I’m as surprised as you are. I’m. The type of person who is irrationally scared of the dentist’s office. I try to avoid it at all costs and well, that isn’t good. I decided to put on my woman pants and make an appointment here and I’m glad I did. The staff was very helpful in assisting me with my appointment and they listened to me when I said I was scared because when I got there the doctor already knew. I didn’t have to tell him. The doctor himself is gentle, very patient, gives detailed explanations of what is needed and what he is doing, he is by far the best dentist I’ve ever met. I have to have quite a bit of work done considering I avoided the dentist at all costs but I honestly feel less anxious knowing that I’m in Dr hands. I would highly recommend this place. Especially if you are petrified of the dentist like I was. They have plenty of way of relieving you of your anxiety to make sure you’re comfortable during your visit.

Laura M. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband was recently seen at Harbor Dental by Dr. Alex and let me just say he was very pleased. Dr. Alex shared with us the new changes in this practice and we wish him well in this new venture!! The new office manager (miss Norma) was wonderful. She scheduled him for his new patient appointment and was able to get him seen by the hygienist the same day. That is huge for him because he is fearful of the dentist and it’s hard to get him to return. We are super impressed with the professionalism of the entire office. I will be scheduling myself soon! Great experience!

Great dentists, staff, and facilities! They’ve helped me get my wisdom teeth removed and have done tremendous work on my teeth and gum. I used to have receding and bleeding gum, but now they’re healthy as ever. Lastly, the staff is incredibly friendly and are very flexible with rescheduling and are diligent in reminding you of your appointment. Highly recommended.

Jim M. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had really great experiences with Innovative Dental. I recently went to a different dentist in the neighborhood, and had a horrible experience. But the entire team at Innovative Dental has been very nice, reliable, and very professional. Most important, they’ve done excellent work on my teeth. Other members of my family have had the same results. Thank you!

Marcia Q. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience here was one of the best dental experiences I have ever had.   Dr. Alex seems to be very knowledgeable, works fast and made sure that it was almost painless. The staff is very pleasant and efficient.  Evening hours are certainly an added benefit.

D. Z. from Escalon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at this office for over 15 years and I love this place. Dr.Alex Vilderman is the best! They are very attentive and the assistants do a good job in explaining procedures and answering all of your questions. The office manager is great, he puts you at ease and helps with any insurance concerns you may have. I dont know what happened with the other people who posted bad comments, maybe they misunderstood something, but from my personal experience, I would recommend this place to everyone! I bring my entire family here and we always get the best of care and never have problems with our insurance. Good Job Guys! 🙂

Yelena S. from Concord, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Alex Vildermam & his staff is very professional and knowledgeable. The receptionist is delightful and courtesy. Doctor and staff have a gentle touch with their state of the art tools as well as demeanor. I did not hesitate to return ASAP to finish the procedure because I have confidence in Doctor Alex, he is truly gifted. I’m very pleased with his staff and himself for the professionalism and gene touch. No pain!

Steve W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dental office I have been to, period. Not only is it absolutely sterile, but the staff are all incredibly friendly and understanding of any dental phobias you may have (and don’t we all have them?). I recently chipped the hell out of my back left molar and was in quite some pain for a week. . .on my initial visit, Dr. Vilderman put a temporary cap on and did a mold for my permanent which was put on today. I can’t say better things about how it turned out. It feels even better than my tooth did before it was fractured. The best part about this place is that they get to know you as a patient and really work with you. They ask you how you’re doing throughout the process and make sure you are comfortable. To me, this is extremely important, and I am so grateful to them for being personal in their work. Vilderman will not let you leave until your mouth feels the way it should. The whole team here is excellent!

Lisa W. from Benicia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. The ladies are courteous and efficient. I have been seen here by two different dentists. Both are knowledgeable and caring. Did deep cleaning, fillings and other dental procedures. All positive experience. Convenient location and they open on Saturday!!!

Mike D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


This has to be one of the best dental offices in San Francisco, Dr Alex Vildermam is truly competent and goes all out to make sure his patients are satisfied and happy with the service. I am very hard to please and look for ways not to deal with you but I must say I truly trust and love his work. Staff is wonderful shout out to all staff at this office. I never fear going to this dentist. Crowns, ROOT CANALS, filling are all done smooth and easy at this office I done a total of 4 crowns. I had a root canal, two fillings no problem outstanding work, great bite and color matching up to par, go here if you want someone trust worthy and knowledgeable. Most importantly never had any problems with my bill everything was done up front. I had a root canal there and I felt great.  3/2018 I can honestly speak on their implants also they are so natural looking can not tell the difference from implant or real tooth. Crazy about Dr. Alex work the man knows his stuff inside out.   Derek

George Serdyukov (Source: Google)


Everytime I come in it is very painless! Everyone that works there is very respectful and gentle. It is also a supremely clean office because they take care of it and love their workplace and you can tell. Dr. Alex and his team have been working on my teeth for years and I wouldn’t trust anyone else’s opinion. Thank you for these years of keeping me healthy!

JD. E. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I wouldn’t go to anyone else if i needed a tooth pulled again. Dr. Vilderman is gentle, quick and reassuring. It was over in seconds. I’ve had wisdom teeth pulled in the past, one at a time by different dentists. Every one of them was an ordeal of an hour or more, involving pliers, either inadequate anesthesia or a nauseating overdose of it, and hearing my tooth being cracked into several pieces, each pulled out one at a time. Suffice to say by the time i found Dr. V i was a nervous wreck about what was about to happen. Next thing i know the nurse is like “ok we’re done.” Even with the fat numb feeling in my face after that the whole day was cake.

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


Dr. Vilderman is as professional as you can get. I have had one disaster after another with my teeth and he has taken care of me for years. The office staff are very pleasant and accommodating (Linda is a godsend). A special shout out to Boris, Dr. V’s assistant who is in on Saturdays. Boris has designed and fashioned a partial for me that looks great and works perfectly! The office is shiny clean and very modern. Dr. V. makes a dental visit as stress-free and painless as can be.

Rebecca M. from Walnut Creek, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved to San Francisco, and found out my family doctor has another two offices in San Francisco, I felt in love with his staff at Innovative Dental, they are very welcoming, the office is very nice and modern, but most of all I love my dentist my whole entire family comes to him Dr. Vilderman and his team are just amazingly caring. Thank you guys for taking care of my family and I for so many years.

Dr Vilderman and Boris are truly amazing practitioners. Had a broken dental implant and Dr Vilderman was able to fix it in less than an hour. Boris made my new implants look great and i now have the smile I have been waiting for. The office is always immaculately clean and well stocked. Every single person that works there that I have had the pleasure of working with have been professional, kind, friendly and helpful. They go above and beyond compared to an office I recently had been to. Every time I have needed an appointment, one has been made available exactly as needed and as soon as possible. I highly recommend Innovative Dental.

Roxanne B. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I felt compelled to do this review because this place is amazing. Upon arrival I was greeted at the door by the nicest most kindest lady whom I had also talked with on the phone prior to the appointment. Her name is Lynda. Lynda made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. She is just so caring and compassionate. She is great at her job. Then I met the dentist, Alex. He is a great dentist.  I was staying in San Francisco for 6 weeks when I need the dentist, I was so happy that we found innovative Dental.  I am home now in San Jose but I will continue to see Dr. Alex and his amazing team for all my future dental work. The place is so clean and very nice. They cater to you and make you feel so comfortable.  I really knew this place was great from the vibe I got from Lynda. She is amazing and would be an asset to any business. They are a great team. Thank you again Innovative Dental on Webster in San Francisco!

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


I recently moved to San Francisco and I’ve been trying to find a good dentist in the city. Since Innovative Dental had a lot of good reviews I decided to try them and I had a great experience. They booked me in for an appointment within 2 days of me calling in which I really appreciated. Dr Alexander and Dr Han were very professional, clearly explaining what was required and next steps. Dr Han who filled in my cavity was very friendly and kind. He explained the procedure and patiently answered all my questions. He made me feel really comfortable as I’m quite nervous at the dentist in general. I was initially skeptical as everyone generally is of trying a new dentist but I definitely recommend them!

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


Dr. Vilderman has been my dentist for over 20 years. (Now my children’s as well) He’s a excellent doctor and very knowledgeable. I’m grateful to have found him years ago. He cares deeply for his patients and what’s in there best interest. The level of care and customer service from the front desk to the dental care specialist are always 5 stars! Thank you! Highly, highly, highly recommended!

Aimee R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Serenity Dental. I have been a patient of Dr. Vilderman for over ten years. He is an extremely skilled dentist with an excellent “dental chair” side demeanor. The best of the best! Recently, I had the pleasure of being a patient of Dr. Khodai. He was also, a very good dentist who answered all the questions of this science teacher, and was very clear on what he was doing and what needed to be done. The administrator were intelligent and thorough in explaining procedures and costs. Also, the assistants were professional and cheerful. Lastly, the hygenist was did a great job both explaining and caring out her job. Serenity dental will provide you with the highest dental care available.

Daniil M. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just saw them for a broken filling that was killing my tooth. Dr. Alex and his team were very professional and took great care of me. Norma and Natalie were great at explaining at what was going to be done, and the assistants answered any other questions that I had. I had about a 10 minute wait- which they apologized for, and took me back ASAP. I saw the hygienist for a deep clean a little while later, and I can literally feel my teeth be cleaner. Office is well maintained, very clean. I am very happy with my visit and will be back for sure!

Luis G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a client for more than 10 years and my experience has always been positive. I decided to write a review after my last visit. I called the office after breaking a crown knowing that all my dental insurance money was maxed out for this year, and less than two months before the insurance kicks in again for the new year. I was not mentally prepared to pay for a new crown but this was an emergency, I needed to get this done… So I got my new crown, and it was FREE! Linda reassured me that there was no charge because the previous one was only a year old. Isn’t that the best service you can get? Professional people making sure that their work is exceptional. Thank you to Dr. Vilderman and the entire Innovative Dental team.

Kristina D. from Pacifica, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been going to Dr. Vilderman for over 20 years. Unfortunately, I was not blessed with “good teeth” and have had to do a lot of work over the years.  Dr. Vilderman is the ONLY doctor I would ever trust to work on my teeth. He has always gone above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and make the procedure as painless as possible. He is by far the best dentist in the city!

Manny S. from Cedar Park, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this office since they were located above Target and Best Buy on the corner of Geary and Masonic for the last few years. Freshly moved into the city, I relied on yelp reviews to locate an office for dental work and it didn’t disappoint. No insurance, with insurance, crooked teeth, etc, they will work with you financially and will provide a wide variety of options with care and consideration. Huge thanks to Dr. Vildermann who is the most efficient dentist I’ve ever worked with, especially considering I needed 5 fillings in one sitting. And to let you listen to music while they work is just icing on the cake!

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


Dr. Vilderman and his team removed my problematic tooth. I can tell you, he took extra special care to ensure the tissues around my tooth, which has a number of issues, was sutured up ultra-well. Very, very pleased thus far and I had the tooth removed just yesterday. Thank you, folks! ORIGINAL REVIEW, 1/20/14 After being referred again, and again, and again for the same tooth issue, I finally called City Dental (which is connected to Innovative Dental), left a message over the lunch hour and was phoned back almost immediately at 1pm or so. Linda was so incredibly empathetic and kind! I actually broke down in tears because up to that point, I’d been met with 20-something year old bimbos at most of these other dental offices whom I’d called and spoke to before calling these folks, who couldn’t give a rat’s tail about my tooth or me! Their only interest? Seemed to be they just wanted to get their $200+ for a consultation…even BEFORE any work had been done. These other offices and their admins and doctors were too busy looking their stupid phones, gossiping to one another about this patient or that and I was just one more patient on their huge list of patients. No one, it seemed, up to the point I spoke to Linda at Dr. Vilderman’s, knew how to stop, be present, and actually give me a moment to focus on me, just me, and be empathetic with how scared and embarrassed I was I feeling about needing to have a front tooth extracted. I went into Dr. Vilderman’s office today and met with him. His chairside manner, like Linda’s, was also very empathetic, kind and so present, that I, again, broke down in tears! I suppose I’m just shocked at how down to earth and real these folks at Dr. Vilderman’s are. Dr. Vilderman also let me know that they have a Periodontist who COMES TO THEIR OFFICE…what? You mean I don’t have to run around, spend money on gas, parking, etc. go to this doctor and that one to get myself taken care of? Great to know you can have a specialist come to you if you need one at your primary dentist’s office, right? Ada, one of the lovely admins at Dr. Vilderman’s office came in while I was still composing myself, got my insurance card, came back and let me know she’d have a quote mailed out by this afternoon. By the time I returned home from my errands, Ada’s email was in my inbox with her assurance that my quote for the work I will need is in the mail. The most important thing above and beyond everything I’ve said here? No one, and I mean NO ONE, I spoke to at Dr. Vilderman’s office made me feel awful or bad with some preachy, “healthier than thou,” attitude just because I needed some serious work done on my mouth. For Yelpers out there who know what I mean by what I just said, the staff at Dr. Vilderman’s, (including the doc himself), know what you’re going through (just ask them) and are there to do the work and help you. They are NOT in business to make you feel terrible or feel that you’re being judged because your teeth need to be worked on. Empathetic, kind, personalized and genuinely gracious service…that’s been my experience thus far at Dr. Vilderman’s office. Thank you, folks, so much for treating me with DIGNITY, KINDNESS and RESPECT….it meant the world to me! Truly. I’m still tearing up as I type this out. :)! So far, so good,…and I haven’t even had any work done yet!

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


This is the best office and care in town !!! Dr Vilderman is highly professional and caring ! I was scared of dentists since I was a child but he took the best care of me and explained me procedures step by step ! They used some amazing product while they cleaned my teeth as well … It smelled good and my teeth are very white ! Thank you !

Kate O. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently visited Dr. Vilderman at his new location for my dental check up and as always was very pleased with the care that him and his team provided. Getting dental work is always a bit stressful, so having the right dentist is key. Dr. Vilderman is very knowledgeable, polite and makes you feel at ease. The new location is pretty awesome and has a nice modern look with all the top notch equipment. I would definitely recommend Innovative Dental for anyone that is looking for great dental care.

Brian Michael S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Alex Vilderman’s at Innovative Dental since june of 2012. I have had extensive dental work done, including several root canals and crowns, implants and deep cleanings all of which have been pain free treatments. Thorough information is always given before my treatments so that I can feel comfortable, and the staff is always very courteous and professional. I highly recommend this State of the Art Dental Office for anyone seeking Great General and Cosmetic Dentistry.
