Dr. Styger is the reason I was able to conquer my fear of the dental chair. He promised that the shots I was about to receive would be painless as would be the entire procedure. To my astonishment it was all true. Because of Dr Styger’s talent and technique I was subsequently able to maintain healthy gums and teeth. I now go to the dentist and have no fear. You will never regret making an appointment with his office. I cannot recommend Dr. Styger highly enough!!

I’ve been going to Dr. Styger since I first moved to SF about 10 years ago. He and his staff are very kind and helpful. Dr. Styger himself is extremely experienced and knowledgable of his craft, and works closely with other specialists in the building to achieve the best results for your oral health.

I don’t know who could possibly write a bad review about Dr. Styger, he is wonderful. Super nice and helpful! I have gone to him for my dental work for about 4 years, and I have not had any problems. He did my veneers about a year and a half ago and they look amazing, I look like I have movie star teeth! I love them! Thanks so much Dr. Styger for making me more beautiful! One more thing, veneers require care and maintenance, for the person who is complaining about thier veneers maybe you should have taken care of your expensive teeth before you wrote a bad review about a great doctor. I have had no problems, and looking at your previous reviews, it seems as if you have nothing but complaints about everything….. Dr. Styger is great!

It has been over 20 years since I’ve been to a dentist.  I was recomended to go to Dr. Styger because I literally hate dentists.  Primarilly because I don’t want anyone working in my mouth, I am such a dental phobic.  I reluctantly made an appointment to see Dr. Styger. Upon entering his office I encountered a very friendly group of people that immediately made me feel at ease.  Dr. Styger had to change a couple of may old fillings and I was very pleased at his gentle touch, his chairside manner and he did a terrific job.  I would highly recomend my friends, relatives and co-workers to see him. I was very surprised that he sent movie tickets from the metreon to the co-worker that refered me to him.  I will be going to him until he retires, what a pleasant experience!!

Kriselda G. from Daly City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad I came to Dr. Styger’s office.  He and the staff are professional and friendly.  They never made me wait for my appointment.  Dr. Styger explained very well the details of my treatment, and he answered all my questions.  He gave me options and not just pushed me in spending my money.  When he needed to give me a shot I was nervous, but he was amazing….”IT WAS A PAINLESS SHOT”, where can you get that?

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


Been going to Dr. Styger for almost a decade now and still is the best dentist I’ve ever been to in my life. Feels more like family vs. a boring, commercial dentists office. From cleaning to x-rays to new fillings to replacing old fillings, I’ve had them done here. Also, he likes new technology and has the latest equipment to take care of whatever you need done.

Abby M. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had two appointments with Dr Styger; a cleaning/general exam after several years of lapsed dental care, and then I came back for a small chip repair and a filling. Hands down my best dental experience- zero wait, extremely pleasant and efficient staff, Dr Styger is prompt, cheerful, great bedside manner explaining everything he was doing, and he’s very good at distracting you for the anxious moments. It was super easy to schedule appointments, and I got a follow up call from him the day after my filling and chip fix to see how it was feeling. Also, they gave me movie tickets for referring my fiancé. I’m so happy to have found this place and look forward to being a regular patient.

I was referred to Joseph Stygler by a coworker and I’m glad I was! I have seen 5 different dentists over the past few years and Doc Joseph is my favorite! He does exceptional work, and the office staff and team there are talented, genuinely friendly and a joy to be around. I had a crown put in and other dental work done and I am extremely happy with it. Highly recommend Joseph and his team!

I have been treated by Dr. Styger for over 5 years and I can’t say enough great things about him and his staff. Dr. Styger is the best dentist I’ve ever had, and there have been MANY unfortunately. Lorrie (office manager) and Victoria (dental assistant) are so professional AND kind, helpful, friendly and make me feel safe any comfortable for all my appointments. Seriously, I look forward to going to the dentist because of them. Yay!

S. P. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Joe is the best dentist in the whole BayArea.  He has the talent of an artist with his color matching on crowns and fillings.  Gives a painless injection.  He is fast so you don’t get a sore jaw by keeping your mouth open for a long time.  He is up to date on all the new dental procedures and materials being used.  He has a friendly and warm personality.  And importantly, he will work with you on your payments.

Helen M. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Styger is an excellent dentist. A real perfectionist. Sadly, I moved out of the area so I don’t see him anymore. I hate to say anything negative about his office but the people working the front desk are really pushy and borderline inappropriate. I have a job where I can’t keep my phone on, so I often don’t hear messages for a couple of hours, and I one time I didn’t return a phone call of theirs (confirming an appointment) and they left me THREE messages, which isn’t so bad but then they called my mother (who is also a patient) telling her that I wasn’t returning the phone calls! They also told my mother that I had a bad cavity and it was very important that I come to my appointment. This whole interaction was so inappropriate and really turned me off to the staff. How dare they call someone else and cause a panic, but then scare my mother and tell her I needed to come to my appointment?!?! (I’m 35 years old, by the way, not 12.) Dr Styger, you are an amazing dentist. Please have a chat with your staff about such practices.

I’ve been going to Dr. Styger and his team for about a year and couldn’t be happier. I needed a new dentist and wanted one near work and came across Dr. Styger. Conveniently located at 450 Sutter and very straight forward appointment. Everyone was very nice and I recommend to anyone needing a new dentist

Lisa N. from Napa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Have been going to Dr. Styger for many years now.  I used to be afraid of the dentist.  He has changed the way I feel about going to the dentist.  He listens, makes you feel cared for and at ease.  He is a great dentist.  So thankful for him.

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


I love visiting Dr Styger and his staff. I have been a patient for 8 years. Lori checks what my insurance covers in advance (I’ve changed jobs several times), then I am able to decide what I can afford. I like sharing travel stories with Dr. Styger (between my X-rays and cleaning). I sent two friends and received a movie pass– that was an unexpected treat.

Brooke M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Styger for well over a decade now. I would not go to any other dentist! He is always cheerful, welcoming, and professional (including his staff, which are simply lovely). I have had numerous dental procedures performed by him thoughout the years and have never experienced any post-procedure difficulties. His work is meticulous and the outcomes have always been above my expectations. I have referred several family members and friends to him, all of whom have raved about how wonderful he was. In fact, my little brother received a set of veneers by Dr. Styger. The results were fabulous!!

Kyle O. (Source: Zocdoc)


From start to finish, this was a professional and personable dental visit. The staff greeted me with a smile and a handshake, happily answered any questions that I had, quickly started my appointment (even called to let me know that beginning the appointment earlier was an option), and executed the task of cleaning my teeth in a jovial and comfortable manner. Honestly one of the best dental visits I’ve ever had.

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


I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Styger and the hygienists he works with. They are all so sweet and helpful, and the doctor tells you every step of the procedure he is performing as he does it. It’s very soothing and inspires confidence. His equipment is all very state-of-the-art. I am totally broke and they helped me come up with a payment plan for my root canal…for me to have spent 1200 bucks and still rave like this is saying quite a lot! Dr. Styger is the best. Also he looks like Santa Claus.

Patrick Shaughnessy (Source: Google)


Dr. Styger is one of the most professional medical professionals I’ve ever met. He has a caring “bedside” manner (well, I guess a “chairside” but you know what I mean!), sends appointment reminders via text and the phone, and, most impressively, calls afterwards to check in and see how you are doing. His front office team is wonderful! They are so diligent and thorough. They always help you find the best deals with your insurance company and help you research what is and is not covered. They are truly top notch. His dental knowledge is very impressive, everything from a simple clean to root canals. Thank you Team Styger!

Always friendly and professional. Appointments start in time and the cleaning and needed procedures are timely. Dr Styger always explains your options and continually updates you as he works on what he’s doing and finding The Staff is fun and accommodating and I’m very happy with their text messaging reminders and follow ups which I find much more helpful than phone calls or emails, which can more easily be ignored or missed. I’m a long time patient and have recommended Joe’s office several times to friends and colleagues.

Raymond P. from Alameda, CA (Source: Yelp)


When I went to Dr. Joe Styger I had some serious problems in my mouth.  Dr. Styger planned out a way in which all the work could be done in just over a year.  In this way, I was able to tap into my Delta Dental Premier coverage, and it cost me the minimum amount of money.  Dr. Styger performed procedure after procedure in a painless fashion.  This dentist uses a number of advanced techniques that makes his work more reliable with the best outcomes.  You can not do better than Dr. Styger!  He is a great dentist.

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


Dr. Styger has been my Dentist since I was a little Kid, he used to work in Davis and has had his practice in San Fran for many years~  I am now 25, and I still drive from Sacramento all the way into San Fran to get my teeth worked on. I have really sensitive teeth, and I wont let any one else get near me! He is a great guy and an awesome DR.! I dont know what I am going to do if he ever retires!

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


Dr. Styger is awesome!  He’s made Lumineers that hide the embarrasing gaps between my teeth.  He’s helped to brighten and whiten my smile with the Sapphire system.  One key aspect of his work–he cares about the aesthetics and artistry of his patient’s smile in conjunction with providing the utmost medical care.  His staff is very giving, very friendly, very trustworthy, very professional–a high quality team!  Highly recommended.  And, best of all, Dr. Styger is just an overall good guy.

I’ve been seeing Dr Styger for cleanings for the last year and love his office. My most recent visit made me SO grateful to have a great dentist on call- I came to him to treat an urgent broken tooth caused by a bad fall. I had fainted and severely dislocated my front teeth. My husband was able to reach his office immediately, send pics by email, and I was in the dentist chair within 1.5 hours. Dr Styger was incredibly capable and acted quickly to save the tooth and re-set it and develop a plan for long term repairs, and was able to refer me to an oral surgeon within the same building immediately to handle stitching up my mouth. It was a scary situation for me and he and his team were so kind and capable and took care of me well. My uncle who is an ER doctor also advised me on treatment and he said everything Dr Styger did was spot on. Also, they’re very transparent about pricing and I always feel I can trust them. Highly recommend Dr Styger, and I hope to never have another serious dental emergency but feel relieved knowing he has me covered!

Dr Styger, is a very fine dentist who does excellent work. I remember he did a very difficult root canal on a tooth on the lower left side of my jaw . I have never had any problems with his work. I was a client of his office for seventeen years, 2000 -2017 My last appointment with him was in March 2018. I am moving to Utah, otherwise I would still keep him as my dentist. He and his staff are very friendly and helpful.

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


Fantastic service and staff – Styger, Laurie and team go above and beyond the normal call of duty to ensure you are treated well and leave with a gleaming smile on your face. Could not recommend more highly! Everyone is very personable and considerate – they make a real effort to understand how you and your family are doing, where they can help, and how they can make your experience as affordable and painless as possible.

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


Amazing staff! Fit me in for an emergency filling and never felt more taken care of! Great location and they are very transparent about the work being done and what insurance might cover. The dentist also called me to make sure everything was going ok after the procedure. Highly recommend.

Paul M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient for a 17 years and the service has always been excellent. I never have to wait to be seen even if I am a few minutes early. Front office staff are very friendly and Dr. Styger always remembers personal details and asks about general health and well-being and even family members. I have recommended this practice to several friends and they all have the same experience.

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


Dr. Styger has been my dentist for many years, and there is a great reason for that…he’s the best. He will he give you clear and accurate information about your dental situation and he will guide you through your best options. Respect and professionalism are the his stock in trade and it filters down to his superb staff. They don’t make many like Dr. Styger, a thorough professional and a very decent human being as well.

I’ve been going to Dr. Styger for almost 4 years now and have been very happy overall. Dr. Styger has never recommended extra procedures that I hear about all too often (from friends who go to other dentists). All he has recommended in the past 2+ years are the regular cleaning sessions. And I’ve never had to wait for more than a minute when I was in for appointments. A word of advice: Given how flaky dental insurances are, always get a pre-authorization (even for a regular cleaning session).

I was mistreated by a dentist when I was younger, so going to the dentist was ALWAYS a big FEAR for me, even at the ripe age of 24. I moved back to San Francisco after graduating from college. I landed a great job while going to grad school, but needed a dentist. I had so many issues with my mouth and teeth, but was so scared to see a dentist until my boss at the time recommended her dental office. This is where I met Dr. Styger, from the first time I met him I knew this was going to be the beginning of a great relationship. Dr. Styger is the best! I have had so much work done for all the years of not going to see a dentist. He was very patient with me, and very gentle, all of my treatments with him have been great. He has great bedside manners and a sense of humor. He has taken a real good care of me and my mouth.. At one company, I referred all of my colleagues to Dr. Styger and they all loved him. I have been with Dr. Styger for over 17 years and I am SUPER happy he’s my dentist.

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


THE BEST dentist and office in the city. I can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Styger and the folks who work with him. Dr. Styger is gentle and kind. He cares about each of his patients and it truly shows. The office has one of the most beautiful views in the city and going there makes something that could be a potentially unpleasant- very comfortable. If you’re looking for a dentist- look no further. Dr. Styger is a true gem.

L. G. from Colma, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our Family have been going to Dr. Styger for more than five years now, he and his staff are very professional. They never made us wait for our appointment, we always felt that we are in good hands.  If there are any treatments needed it was explained clearly, oh! and when you need anesthesia…he is very gentle!! He explains what he is doing every step of the way. I recommend Dr. Styger to my friends and family.!

Going to the dentist is torture for me but this visit was as good as it could possibly be. Little to no wait time. Dr. Styger was very friendly, professional, and informative. He described exactly what he was doing and why throughout the treatment and even took close up pics of problem areas to show me what was going on with my teeth.

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


My husband and I have been going to Dr. Styger since 2001, and we’re both big fans of his practice.  Dr. Styger himself is really friendly and easy to talk with.  His staff are always top notch and seem very comfortable working with insurance companies.  I’ve probably been there 25 times over the years, and I’d say 23 of those I was seen on time and 2 times I maybe had to wait 5 minutes.  In other words – both Dr. Styger and his hygienists are always super considerate about my time, and I love that.  Equipment is very up to date, office atmosphere is clean and orderly, and parking around the corner at the parking garage is super easy.  We’ve happily recommended Dr. Styger to friends.

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


Total utter lifesaver! I brought Dr. Styger a mess (another office had talked me into unnecessary root canals on peg lateral incisors. Why would you remove healthy tooth structure on already tiny teeth?!) and he cleaned up! He discussed all my options with me, gave me his opinion on the cost and durability or each, and never pressured me to get treatment I wasn’t completely sure of. In the end, he did a Sapphire whitening (which looks AMAZING but wasn’t painless. Ahh, the things we do for beauty) and two new impossible-to-detect crowns. These babies look better than the real thing! I am floored by how pleased I am with Dr. Styger’s results. All his office and attendant staff are super friendly, attentive, and wonderful to deal with. I’ve never been so happy to pay a big bill! I highly recommend Dr. Styger!
