Kathleen H. from Pacifica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just moved to the area and needed to find a dentist. Did my research and picked Dr. Stangeland’s office. WHAT AN AMAZING FIND!! From the minute you walk in the door you feel a warm welcome. They take the time to get to know you personally and chat with you. You don’t experience the typical rush in and out of other offices. They took excellent care of me and my daughter and we left their office smiling! Thank you Dr. Stangeland and your amazing staff for an exceptional experience!

This was my first ever visit to this dental office and I am simply amazed at the level of care and professionalism that this staff provudes to every person that walks into the office. I had a very severe issue with a tooth and they very accomodating towards my appointment and the doctor provided a step by step description of what he was doing.. Best experience I have ever had. Also the care they are taking to follow the very strict guidelines during these pandemic times goes beyond and makes one feel very secure… I am sure to become a new regular patient here…

Dr. Stangeland and his staff are awesome. They are doing a great job with all the Covid-19 precautions and I felt very comfortable in their office. I was just there for a cleaning but was impressed with their process and the measures they took to keep both the staff and patients safe. Highly recommend Dr. Stangeland!!

I S. from Silicon Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first appointment with Dr Stangeland today. I can honestly say they over deliver. I am new to the area and decided to check out reviews before I scheduled my first appointment! I can say every review on here is correct! Everyone in the office was so nice, I was seen on time and my new patient appointment took 90 minutes, Dr stangeland and his staff truly care about dental health, they were very informative and thorough, I was happy to schedule my next appointment in 4 months.

Dr. Stangeland is a wonderful dentist and all the other staff are fantastic too. Everybody is very friendly, professional, and enthusiastic about their work. All appointments are kept on-time and the quality of work is first-rate. It’s a great place to go if you need specific types of dental work or just general preventative check-ups. I highly recommend this dental office!

Tonya S. from Newark, CA (Source: Yelp)


Upon arriving at Dr. Stangland’s door, I was met with a lovely purple travel blanket and a very warm “Welcome to our office!”, from Gloria the office manager! Talk about personality!!!! Immediately, I felt comfortable, like I had known the staff for years 😉 I saw Marissa, the hygienist. She was friendly, extremely thorough and genuinely concerned about me and my dental health! It was one of the best cleanings I’ve had! Being in the dental field myself, my praise isn’t just given easily or unknowingly! Then…I finally got to meet Dr. Stangland!!! What a gem, it’s like hanging out with a favorite uncle. He was very warm and immediately I felt at ease. It’s evident how much he enjoys what he does. Such a great team! Thank you all. Do yourself a favor, see Dr. Stangland, you and your dental health deserve it! Note to self: make an appointment!!!

Natalia M. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ross Stangeland and his staff are amazing. I have done bonding on my upper teeth and was back for lover ones few months later. I’ve got the better result than I even expected and can’t be happier now. Always very attentive, thoughtful and caring staff is a great bonus, but Dr’s professional level and personal communication is above the 5 stars! I highly recommend Dr Stangeland if you are looking for great result

I am a new patient at Dr. Stangeland’s practice. I have only been in for two appointments but the entire team there has been extremely warm, welcoming and very professional. Extraordinarily flexible w/ appointment times! You don’t have to wait weeks to get in! Dr. Stangeland has a very authentic bed side manor and has assured me the services I have gone in for won’t be complete until I, the patient, is satisfied. This is incredibly refreshing and reassuring! I would highly recommend this practice to anyone!

Jonathan Hull (Source: Google)


Dr. Stangeland and his team have been our family dental health providers for more than 20 years. Not only Dr. Stangeland but Marissa, Gloria and everyone else in the office deserve recognition for always being professional, courteous, and willing to help. I’m overjoyed that we found them when we moved to the Bay area and highly recommend them to anyone else who’s looking for a dentist.

Nadya M. from Elmwood, Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had such a pleasant experience with Dr. Stangeland and all of his staff. I was warmly greeted by Ms. Gloria who was such a breath of fresh air and pleasure to talk to. She made scheduling and payment so simple. I then met Dr. Stangeland and Ms. Sonia who were both very gentle, thorough, and efficient throughout my appointment.  I’ll no longer dread going to the dentist now that I’ve found their office.

Isabel K. from Pacifica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Ross is such a great dentist and super honest! I first visited him about 4 or 5 years ago after seeing a new dentist who claimed I needed 2 fillings a bunch of other work costing about $3500. My husband recommended I get a second opinion so I made an appointment with Dr Stangeland. He looked at my teeth and did not find ONE cavity or a need for any other procedure!!!! 5 years later and STILL no cavities or any extra treatments aside from regular check-ups… Also, his office staff is professional, understanding, thoughtful and friendly. The hygienists are so into their work! They all know and love what they do. Going to this office is actually stress-free and a pleasure…I never thought I’d feel this way about a dentist’s office, lol!

Never before in my life have I actually looked forward to going to the dentist. Everyone that works here is amazing. I went in for a cleaning and they ended up having time in their schedule to give me a crown that day – something I had been putting off for years. In addition to the crown and several cleanings, Dr. Stangeland also set me up with a splint to help with my TMJ and nighttime teeth grinding. So grateful for Dr. Stangeland and his whole team.

Aya I. from Vancouver, Canada (Source: Yelp)


I had a very warm welcome by Gloria, and she even took a great care of my 3 year-old daughter. I came here for a checkup and few concerns for my teeth. The staffs were super nice as well as Dr.Ross. He listened to my worries and concerns and suggested my options further on. Will be definitely revisiting and will highly recommend to those who are seeking a dentist!! They treat you as part of their family:))

D L. from Daly City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I take my dental care seriously and until I started seeing Dr Strangeland, I can say I wasn’t super impressed with previous dentists. This practice is as good as it gets when it come to quality, professionalism, and follow up. I’ve had several procedures done including: major deep cleans, getting several of my teeth fixed up, as well as my regular check ups and cleanings. The results from all the work I’ve gotten here is top notch. Dr Strangeland’s whole team are the best and make you feel welcome and most of all cared for. My teeth are currently in the best shape they have been cause for once I’m actualy listening to the advice I’m given by them as well as my mother. Mom always said, ” Your teeth are important and you must take care of them”. I’ve always been somewhat hestiant to invest in my dental health, but I really can’t complain because as of now, my teeth are in solid shape.

Beth H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stangeland and his staff are excellent. I have extreme dentist phobia and had some unpleasant procedures last week and the entire staff made the molar extraction and 2 crowns a piece of cake. Did not think it was possible to be as relaxed while having dentistry work done but it’s all about the staff. A lot of places pull out all the bells and whistles trying to make it a spa experience when what you really need are people that put you at ease both by their demeanor and knowledge. THIS PLACE IS AWESOME!

Julia K. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stangeland has been our family’s dentist for a few years. I couldn’t imagine a better doctor  – real pride of being his patient. Everyone on his Team starting with super-helpful Gloria who warmly  greets you with a little gift at the reception and keeps working diligently for you with insurance, sharp-eyed Marisa who does teeth cleaning, kind and supportive Sonia, and result-oriented innovative Dr. Ross Stangeland himself makes any visit a pleasure (to what extend a dentist visit could be a pleasure ;). For this amazing Team that Dr. Ross has built over years, humanness, passion, and willingness to go an extra mile is of top priority. I am very thankful to Dr. Stangeland and happy to recommend him to anyone.

Sandy L. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad I found Dr. Stangeland’s office. I am a new patient and I felt I was sincerely welcomed by the staff. I had a dental cleaning and check up and here’s what I am most impressed with: 1) Upon arrival, the staff immediately knew who I was. I was greeted promptly and presented with a new patient gift 2) The hygienist Jan was extremely thorough and professional. She really worked hard to clean my teeth as I hadn’t had a cleaning in years 3) Dr. Stangeland took his time and carefully evaluated each tooth on my xrays. He explained things other dentists hadn’t thought to tell me previously. He did not rush through his exam, addressed all my questions and I felt he was extremely attentive 4) I really felt like they took their time to get to know me as a new patient to understand my preferences and concerns 5) Location and parking is easy peasy I am very happy with my experience as a new patient at Dr. Stangeland’s office!

I presented Dr. Stangeland a problem of both nature, a dash of neglect, and a history from two continents of dentists telling me how difficult it was to work on my teeth. Dr. Stangeland and his fantastic staff took the challenge on with grace and a big dash of fortitude. Result-one very very happy camper here. This is a testimony to Dr. Stangeland skills, his ability to build a tremendous support staff (Gloria is superb) and network of specialists- Dr. Donderos (artistry and great humor). Look no further.

Klaus Fabian (Source: Google)


I have been going to Dr. Stangeland for years and haven’t been disappointed. When I once had to go to a different dentist, the other Dentist was impressed with Dr. Stangeland’s crowns. Dr. Stangeland is also good with giving painless numbing shots – one thing I am quite sensitive about. He explains well and he is staff is very friendly. I definitely would recommend Dr. Stangeland highly.

Cheryl A. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist I have ever been to. They spent the time to get to know me. Had a welcome gift ready for me when I arrived for my appointment. Had to get a cap on a tooth & I was able to pick from a “menu” of things to keep me occupied. I chose the Pandora with head phones; made the whole experience so much more pleasant. My boyfriend was having a lot of pain & Dr. Strangland met him on a Sunday night at 9:00 at the office to help him. Class act! My son now goes here too. He loved it as well.

Mary P. from South San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was the first time I have ever visited this clinic and all I can say is that this has to have been the best experience I have ever had. The moment I walked inside Gloria, the sweetest person, gave the warmest welcome ever! Even gave me an umbrella with a welcome card (super cool) and offered me tea and coffee! Everything from the ambience to the doctors here was such an amazing experience! Never going anywhere else again

I’ve told multiple doctors and dentists about my issues with my TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint), telling them about the clicking, the difficulty opening and closing my jaw etc. Dr. Stangeland is the only healthcare professional who has displayed any understanding of the issues around the joint, and he spoke with the expertise of someone who’s dealt with this before. He had a hunch and seemed like he knew what was wrong right away. He pinpointed it to my teeth having an irregular bite, and explained that it could be the source of my tinnitus and trigeminal neuralgia. I don’t know if he’s right yet but he recommended a splint. It’s an expensive treatment but it should correct the bite and fix the cascade of other issues that came from it. I was close to tears thinking of the fear, anxiety, and frustration I’ve dealt with coming from just my TMJ issues. If this addresses just those, my life will be changed. If this treatment helps with the tinnitus and other issues, it’ll have been one of the most important medical visits of my life. I couldn’t recommend this practice more!

Dr Stangeland has been my dentist since approximately the early 1990’s. I very much respect him as my dentist. He is personable, he is most skillful in his professional; and I trust him immensely in taking care of my teeth. I feel that he is tops!! I would recommend him to anyone who’s looking for a great dentist that they can depend on to do quality service. He’s the best!

Kim Tivey (Source: Google)


I usually don’t write reviews but decided that it was high time that give Dr. Stangeland the recognition that he and his staff deserve. My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Stangleland for over 20 years. He and his staff are wonderful. The practice is well organized, efficient and welcoming. Gloria is the sweetest! She greets you the moment you walk in the door and makes you feel at home. Dr. Stangeland is a great Dentist. He possesses a rare combination of skills, knowledge and genuine interested in his patients. He is personable and caring and it’s clear that he loves his work. His practice offers everything from routine dental work to cosmetic restoration procedures. Even though Dr. Stangeland offers an extensive range of services, you never feel pressured or pushed into them. He also gives you an honest opinion of what he believes are the best options for you by taking into consideration the best possible outcome and cost. He truly has your best interest at heart. I cannot speak highly enough about Dr Stangeland and his practice. If you are looking for an outstanding Dentist with fantastic staff, I highly recommend Dr. Stangeland.

Paula G. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dentist…Ugh!  There comes a time when you just have to go. Dr. Stangeland and staff were highly recommended so I took a leap of faith. I was beside myself on the first visit and I was just having my teeth cleaned. I requested gas to help calm my nerves and then procedure started. Not really feeling any discomfort and it went pretty quick, when done I was told they ran out of the nitrous oxide, so I really didn’t need it anyway. Everyone that works here is so nice and friendly they go out of their way to accommodate you and make sure your comfortable and not stressed out. Gloria is terrific ( I swear she takes happy pills ) She makes you feel right at home and will do anything to squeeze you in and accommodate your needs.  Dr. Stangeland is extremely professional and genuinely concerned about your well being and comfort, he makes sure you understand each and every step. Looking for a dentist..stop looking, call Dr. Stangeland and have Gloria set you up with an appointment, you won’t be disappointed

Susie Y. from San Carlos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m one of those people that are always on the search for biggest & best for everything that I do/buy. After finding Dr. Stangeland over 7 years ago. I haven’t looked any further NOT once. I inherited terrible-quality teeth and have been going to dentists frequently all throughout my life. …So I know what I’m talking about. There are 2 things in particular that I really love: – He has multiple ideas about solving a problem. – He doesn’t try to gouge you by recommending the most expensive solution. He tells you whatever he thinks is right, whether that costs him nothing or not. The only con: i don’t always like the hygenists. too much turn-around.

Phil W. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


All the rave reviews on here are true about Dr. Stangeland’s wonderful office, Gloria and staff. However, I would like to focus my review on the fact that I came to Dr. Stangeland with a severe dental phobia which had prevented me from seeing a dentist for over 6 years. I interviewed, in person, all the dentists in this area, including all the ones who claim to be experts when dealing with dental phobia. Dr. Stangeland was the only Dentist who listened to me and with whom I felt at ease. He is patient, empathic and brings a sense of lightness for an anxious patient. With great kindness and compassion, his office gently guided me through: a cavity, a root canal and a crown. If you are someone who avoids (to put it mildly) the dentist, then Dr. Stangeland’s is the only office in town worth going to. He and his team are magical and amazing.

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


I’m soooo happy I found Dr. Stangeland’s office! I had my first appointment today, and my visit was surprisingly enjoyable. Who would have thought… The front staff greeted me immediately. They had a personalized welcome card with a water bottle set at the front desk waiting for me along with my on-boarding paperwork. It was just so seamless and welcoming. Gloria, who had scheduled my appointment the day before, immediately recognized me and greeted me, as I was handing in my paperwork at the front desk. Dr. Ghowsi did my comprehensive dental exam and cleaning, and I’m just so wowed. The cleaning was painless, effortless. He was attentive, educational and very easy to talk to. I could tell he took the extra time to be meticulous and careful to ensure he wouldn’t cause any pain. I’m super pleased about my experience and have already scheduled my next appointment and cleaning here. I’m definitely going to be recommending this office within my network.

Cheli C. from San Carlos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love going to the dentist but what I love more is going to a place that is so warm, welcoming and so detail oriented. I spoke to Gloria first over the phone and she sounded so cheerful which nowadays is hard to find. I was able to get in the very next day. As I walk in there is an adorable purple roll up blanket and a card with my name on it. My cleaning was super comfortable and my dentist was awesome, funny and attentive to my needs. They go above and beyond to make you feel taken care of. Most definitely recommend this place and will be returning.

I had a chip tooth and a cavity, they did an xray and found the problem and solution right away. Dr. Stangeland told me what needs to be done. Once I gave him the go he didnt hesitate, he went straight to work and fixed my chipped tooth and gave me a filling in less than 2 hours. The most gentle handed dentist. I highly recommend these folks.Also, Super nice people in the office. I live in Redwood Shores didn’t even know they were there, atleast now I do. I hate visiting the dentist based on fear, but with there positive attitude and professionalism I am scared no more.

Winnie T. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stangeland’s office has given me a WOW experience! I’m a new patient and had my first general dental cleaning and deep cleaning here. The entire team are very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. I enjoyed the family-like atmosphere and never felt lost. On arrival, I saw a card with my name on it and was immediately greeted by Gloria’s smiling face. She guided me through the check-in process and even provided me with an umbrella for the unexpected, heavy rain. For following appointments, she always reminded me a day before and recognized me when I walked in. The hygienist, Marrisa, is really considerate and thorough. I didn’t have my teeth cleaned regularly; hence, it took much more time and efforts in the scaling and root planning. Marrisa kindly reassigned her next patient and didn’t rush through the treatment. In addition, she advised me to listen to music to calm my nerves and kept checking on me to ensure I don’t experience any pain. My gums are no longer bleeding after the treatment! Dr. Ross spent time getting to know me and reviewing every tooth on x-rays. He explained my oral health status and how to improve it. He’s very professional, attentive, and non-judgmental. I’m so glad to find this place!

Cady S. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I loved my experience with Dr. Stangeland and his awesome staff (especially Gloria and Marissa!). Everyone was simultaneously warm, kind, and professional. I was brushing way too hard on a couple of teeth and actually putting myself at risk of long term damage, and although I’ve been to the dentist regularly all my life no one ever explained in-depth the fine details of exactly what is going on when you brush and exactly how to maximize your efforts. I know we all think we know that, but Marissa (the hygienist) enlightened me a lot! I’m all for prevention versus intervention when possible, and as I leave I’m feeling relaxed (who knew you could leave a dental office feeling relaxed??) and positive about my ability to make sure I continue to have a great smile for years to come. This is a great place!

Erica C. from Santa Rosa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stangeland and his entire staff are awesome! Dr. S. really knows his stuff. And he’s so conscientious about pain management. No one likes dental work, but if you need a filling or crown he is extremely careful to make sure you are sufficiently numb before beginning the work. Pain free every time. Janice is a great hygienist! I was having issues with my gums and she educated me and kept giving me tips and tricks until we finally got my gums and “pockets” under control. She is helpful without being judgmental. Gloria at the front desk is so friendly and professional. She is on top of appointments and billing. She’s great about letting you know if there are cancellations if you want to be seen sooner and if you have an emergency they will always get you in. Everyone is super friendly and top notch!

Voice and Choice are the two most important things that makes this office so special. I am extraordinarily happy with the service and atmosphere of Dr. Stangeland’s staff and office. I am very pleased with the thoughtful kindness and professionalism put into all aspects of my care. I was greeted warmly. I shared that I have physical impairments that are not visible and many accommodations were made for my needs. The thing I am most appreciative of is being given choices in how I would receive information. I was told that some people prefer not know a lot of detail while others do. I am a person that wants a lot of information and they took the time to explain things to me and let me know that there are different avenues that can be explored based on my wishes. I really liked that they focus on what’s specifically important to their patients. I was treated with respect. I appreciate that the office has huge windows to look out of during appointments. Looking at the plants and trees was calming. I was able to go back the very next day to get some fillings. I needed two and Dr. Stangeland was flexible with whether to continue with the second filling based on my physical comfort. He was very efficient and thorough. I was able to sit for both fillings while listening to an audiobook.

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


I had a bad experience at another dental clinic in the city so I reached out to a friend to get their recommendation on dentist. They recommended Dr. Strangeland’s office which was a bit out of the way for me as I had to take Muni to get to the CalTrain and then a Lyft to get to the office but I feel the elongated trip was well worth it. Upon arrival I was greeted in a friendly manner and had a welcome card addressed to me waiting with a water bottle. The receptionist, Gloria, was extremely friendly and the dentist and dental assistants were also friendly. They actually took the time to get to know me personally and not in a small talk manner. They squared up with me and asked questions about my life, where I was from, personal interest and more. Then when the next person walked in the room they would repeat these things when introducing me to them. Based on some of the more common customer service experiences of “give me your money and get out of here” or “I’ll read a greeting script that I’m required to say but don’t really mean what I’m saying” Ross Strangeland’s office was a refreshing change. After the visit I found that my dental insurance didn’t cover X-rays once a year but it instead it covered X-rays every 12 months so because I went in December of 2017, they didn’t cover April of 2018. Dr. Strangeland’s office waived the charge indicating the amount wasn’t a big deal and they like to take their own X-rays rather than rely on other dentist work who may/may-not have gotten things right. For me this was truly a great experience and even with the commute I’ll be going back when my next cleaning is due.
