I haved lived in San Francisco for less than a year. So, unfortunately I was at work one day and cracked a porcelain veneer during lunch. Completely cracked in half and was one of my front teeth. I was devastated. I quickly got online and googled cosmetic dentists in SF. Dr. Roth’s name came up and the reviews were great.  I made the call on Monday afternoon. I spoke with Ruth, Dr. Roth’s office manager.  She was very sweet and kind and grasped the urgency of the situation.  She arranged for me to see Dr. Roth on Tuesday afternoon.  Upon arriving to his office, I noticed  how kind the staff was and it extended throughout the office. Dr. Roth was able the make a temporary veneer while the permanent one was being recreated. He even took time out to call my dentist in New Orleans to discuss how my veneers were made so that the permanent one would be a close match.  I cannot sing the praises of Dr. Roth and his entire staff enough.   I now have a dentist here in SF that I can go to regularly for my routine dental work in addition to any emergency that may come.  And his staff are equally amazing!!!

Dr Nathan Roth and his staff were great, Switched over my current dentist to these guys. I came in on an emergency to get my front tooth fixed after I chipped it off. The staff at SF Cosmetic Dental were humble and willing to sit down with me and explain to me step by step process on getting me back to new. Very happy with everything and see you guys soon!!

Amazing!!! I have been a patient of Dr.Roth for about 9 yrs. He has cared for my teeth and explained the importance of maintaining a healthy smile for a healthier me. I have always been scared to go to the dentist because of bad experiences in other offices from, dental treatment to the financial surprises. One thing I have not experienced before is the thoroughness of the office manager.Ruth checks on my benefits, gets an approval and estimate before I move into any treatment and educated me in the process of how important it is for me, as a patient,to know about my coverage. I was not aware of how sneaky insurances can be. Claudia is my hygienist and she is amazing, gentle and makes me feel at eaze when I have my cleanings. I finally moved ahead with my veneers and kick myself for not doing it sooner. I walked with spaces in between my teeth for a long time. Never smiling. now I do when given the chance too. Love my new smile. Thank you Dr. Roth! I recently chipped a tooth while having lunch near by. Dr Roth offered to see me the same day but I could not see him till a couple of days later due to work. I finally went in and come to find out I broke off a big chunk of tooth and needed a crown. Unfortunately he was completely booked that day but he did consider  that I drove from san Carlos and offered to work me in as long as I understood he had to attend to the appointments first. I understood and agreed to stay. I was there for almost three hours buy left with a complete tooth. I appreciate how the office goes out their way to accommodate you into a busy schedule even if it means”no lunchtime” for the staff. Great office! Great team! The only downfall is the heavy traffic and scarce parking. Over all worth the drive from San Carlos!.

Dr Roth and his staff are simply the best dental group I have ever been to, and I have been to several very good ones over the years. He makes use of the best of modern dental technology,  his skill is unmatched. I actually enjoyed having my teeth cleaned – thanks Cindy But perhaps what means the most to me is the way I was treated as a person, not just another dental patient. I happen to have some special needs to make my neck comfortable and Cindy and Dr Roth never once forgot this over a period of several years. I will miss them all very much. You will not find a better group,  anywhere.

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


I had a filling that was missing and in pain. I called and made an appointment. My appointment was at 12 pm and arrived at 12. They brought me into the chair right away! Dr Nathan Roth was very cool, made me feel comfortable. We even talked about Bay Area sports! He was very informative about what he was going to do step by step. His assistant Fadwa was very personable and informative also. My X-ray and procedure was less than 90 minutes. He did a great job on my tooth and I’m scared of needles but I experienced very little pain! The office manager Ruth was very kind and flexible. I’d recommend Dr Nathan Roth to anyone.

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


I hadn’t been to SF Cosmetic before, but I had a crown that fell off, and was referred to them by my regular dentist.  They were able to see me right away (on a busy Friday no less) to get it back on temporarily, and I was able to get an appointment for the following Monday to have it fixed permanently.  Great job!

Ana Q. from Nob Hill, San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I used to think going to the Dentist was a breeze, almost a relaxing time. Then 7 years ago my dentist moved away and for this whole time, all my experiences w a dentist were negative. About 3 weeks ago, I walked by Dr. Roth’s and decided to go in and check it out. From the staff in the entrance who were super efficient and helpful (they checked my insurance and answered all my questions) through making my appointment, all went smooth. A couple days later I came in for my cleaning and overall check up, Cindy did an amazing job with my cleaning, shel left me with that feeling of wanting to floss every day just to keep them clean. Still feeling it after 2 weeks. Later I met Dr. Roth, felt super comfortable with him, we chatted a bit and then he went ahead with my full check up, he was thorough. It all felt right. Very happy to feel like I’m back in good hands.

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


Don’t fear the dentist with SFCDG! Dr. Roth and his staff are excellent, not only in the quality of care and friendliness but the level of detail they give before and throughout exams and procedures. Removing doubts and uncertainties is incredibly important when there’s a room of pointy instruments at hand, and I really appreciate it.

Kristin C. from Mill Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hated going to the dentist when I was little but Dr. Roth and all their staff have completely changed my perspective! I hadn’t seen a dentist in a couple years and during my first visit here I felt very well taken care of. As a new patient, Dr. Roth walked me through every step to make sure my teeth were in good health and I left feeling much more confident. If you are in need of a new dentist, even if it’s just a check up, please be sure to visit the! Everyone offers great care and advice. I no longer dread the dentist.

Justin D. from San Marcos, CA (Source: Yelp)


It was the first chance I could get to the dentist in 2 years, and I am looking forward to going back in 6 months for my next cleaning. Just finished up my first appointment with Dr. Nathan Roth. He was very nice, and extremely knowledgeable. He noted a couple areas that I will need to watch for in the future, but my teeth and gums were fine. It was the first time I had ever had the surrounding soft tissues checked. Ruth was great. I had so many issues with making an appointment, it was crazy. I rescheduled at least 6 times, and she had to check with my insurance company 3 times. The first time, I discovered I was not added to the policy. The second time, my insurance had not been activated yet. Fortunately 3rd time was the charm, but she spent hours on the phone for me.

Alex S. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my tooth chipped last night, needed to see someone close to my work during my lunch break.  I googled for a dentist around my work and found Dr. Roth just a block away, called them and they gladly took me in.  The staff is friendly and attentive while Dr Roth’s work is impeccable.  The location is great not having to deal with downtown parking and traffic.  I will be switching all my dental work to SFCD from now on- and highly recommend the service.

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


Came here after a recommendation from a friend, and I was not disappointed.  Friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff all around.  My teeth are cleaner than they have EVER been (except maybe when I first got them), and I was not scolded for the fact that I hadn’t been to the dentist in several years. Cool ceiling pictures+chill music+friendly staff make this a calm and comfortable place…which means a lot, considering it’s a dentist office.

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


I have been seeing Dr. Roth since I was a child. He is a fantastic dentist.  He is super friendly, super patient, very gentle and generally just amazing.  I’ve been forced to try a few other dentists (due to insurance and logistics issues) but I always end up coming back to Dr. Roth.  He is second to none in the Bay Area. His staff is also just awesome.  Ruth is the best: she has helped me with countless scheduling and insurance issues over the years, and always with a big smile on her face.  She just knows how to find a solution for everything.  Cindy is also an amazing hygienist.  She’s so incredibly sweet, thorough and very gentle.  She makes every cleaning so comfortable! I highly recommend this place for all of your dental needs!.

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


Being that I have always had difficult, damaged, and crooked teeth, I have had a lot of dental care in my lifetime. Somewhat traumatized from previous dental visits, I decided to give Dr. Roth a try as he came highly recommended from a friend of mine. I think I have found my niche when it comes to dentists. I was immediately impressed at the kindness and professionalism of the staff. They are all so nice and warm. Ruth, his office manager, is very sweet and his assistant Fadua is wonderful and very knowledgeable. Dr. Roth is awesome! He is really great and I can’t sing his praises enough. Never in my life have I had a dentist who I can say left me with a happy feeling after leaving his office.  He thoroughly explained everything to me and even as he was working in my mouth, he told me what he is doing. His voice is somewhat soothing as well, which is plus, because I am a very nervous patient. But I feel like I can really trust him with my teeth and that is very important to me. His office is somewhat far from my home and work but I am willing to make the trip because I feel the quality of care that I am getting is completely worth it. After I had some work done, Dr. Roth called me himself to see how I was doing and how my teeth were feeling.  I truly appreciate the extra steps he and staff take to make sure his patients are confident and happy.

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


Dr Roth is amazing very gentle I speak for my self as well as my son who had a fear of Dentist until he meet Dr Roth and he is a gentle and very caring doctor that really nows what is best for your all around treatment so in my book he is the best thank you from Daniel and Claudia.

Ramie S. from Daly City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Roth is the most gentle caring dentist I have been to yet. He really took the time to make sure the anesthetic was sufficient and did a really thorough job examining my teeth. The root canal I ended up having to have… UUUGHHH, was not as painful as I have had with other dentist. I was actually not bad at all. Been back since the root canal for a cleaning and the hygienist was AWESOME!!! She did a great job, took her time and gave me great tips on gum massage and proper flossing. I had such a great experience that I promised myself to never dread the dentist visits again! Finally the office staff is wonderful. Great customer service and always have time for all my insurance questions and issues. Definitely recommend this dental clinic!!

Logan S. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been looking for a good dentist since I moved to the city. I’ve seen three and no one came close to Dr Sullivan who I’ve seen most of my life. Dr Roth and his staff did just that. Great staff, knowledgeable, efficient and good. I am perpetually late, and they always get me right in to the chair.

David Brandenburg (Source: Google)


I found this dentist in desperation via Google Maps and I had the best experience possible. Despite not being my dentist and never having met me, Dr. Roth re-bonded my temporary front tooth in a matter of 20 minutes after calling to request urgent help because the bond failed on my way to an important business lunch. He and his staff were so immediately helpful, understanding and accommodating to a complete stranger, I can’t believe it. I’m so thankful to them. And in the end my colleague and I had a relieving laugh about my tooth at lunch and it broke the ice between us. Thank you.

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


I hate the dentist, but I absolutely love Dr. Roth, and his staff Ruth, Cindy, and Fadwa  they are all amazing!! I was traumatized by the dentist when I was a child,and dreading going to the dentist, they have restored my faith. They are so patient, and gentle with me! Dr Roth always walks me through everything, and always puts me at ease! Thanks guys you Rock!!

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


I recently scheduled appointments for my 3 teenage daughters, who were hesitant about going to a Dentist due to bad experiences they had at our previous Dental office. When I scheduled the appointments, I expressed their concerns to Ruth who assured me Dr. Nathan Roth was  kind and would explain every step of the process. The girls had different appointment days (by choice) and all came back with the exact same feedback which is as follows: “The office staff was nice, professional, and welcoming,- Dr. Nathan Roth is a one of a kind dentist who is caring, explains what he is doing, gentle, not rushed, and personable– The hygienist’s took their time and taught techniques that were never taught before.” For me I always observe how happy employees seem to be at their workplace, and everyone truly seemed happy and to enjoy their job. Thank you Dr. Nathan Roth and Staff for providing such a wonderful experience for my daughters, the time and effort you took is paying off and they are using the new flossing techniques that they were taught.

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


This office was recommended to me by my co-worker and she was absolutely right. From the beginning to the end, great customer service. My son had an underbite and in 2 short months his teeth already shifted to an overbite. My son is so happy! Dr. Roth knows what he’s doing. I would highly recommend this dentist. They offer early morning appointments too for you early birds, and kids don’t have to miss school. The staff is just as nice as the doctor.

Paula H. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is a wonderful practice- Dr. Roth, his assistant Fadua,  hygienist Cindy and the office staff, Ruth and Gina. To a person, each is helpful, knowledgeable and congenial.  Honestly, I had a hard time saying goodbye to my terrific dentist on the East Bay where I lived before moving to SF 6 years ago. In fact, for the first five years, I chose to commute the 50 miles RT back there for my visits. But last year, I cut the cord. What if I had a dental emergency?,  I reasoned, though those have been few and far between over the years. But the truth of the matter was that it only made sense to see a local dentist. So here’s how I found Dr. Roth: there’s a monthly newsletter for the 202- unit condo complex in which I live, and I posted a request for a dentist referral on its bulletin board. I was soon swamped with referrals for Dr. Roth. Of course, I used Yelp to read still more reviews, and I concluded that this practice was the one for me. First, I had a brief appointment just to meet the doctor. Then I had my teeth cleaned and examined on the next visit. Twice in the period of 2014. But THEN, the real test came in January 2015 when I BROKE a tooth one night eating popcorn. The office opens at 7am and Dr. Roth saw me that next morning. Thank God, because I was flying down to Phoenix late that same morning. He identified the problem and gave me a temporary fix to last me until I returned from the trip the following week. That was today, my first full day back. Now I’ve really gotten to experience Dr. Roth’s work and his manner. He has a gentle touch and he explains every part of the procedure. His assistant, Fadua, seems extremely competent and they make an excellent team. I’m confident that they’ve set me back on the track of dental health and I’m so glad I’ve been fortunate enough to find this practice.

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


Staff are super nice and I always leave with a glimmering smile on my face! To be honest I have always feared going to the dentist because I’m scared of needles, blood and any type of surgery. This place has always made me feel comfortable and going to the dentist now is actually a pleasant experience for a scardy cat like me.

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


My family has being going to Dr. Roth for 20 years +. That in itself is an endorsement but to ad a little more, they are always nice, office staff, assistants, cleaning and Dr. Roth. Always on time, very direct and to the point of what is needed and I never feel any doubt that I need to do what they are advising. One of the reasons we went originally is we were looking for someone who would limit the pain as much as possible. This has been very effective. On three occasions (in 25 years) I split a tooth (different ones). Dr Roth saw me immediately, fixed the problem and I was on my way. I highly recommend SF Cosmetic Group for family dentistry needs. Michael.

Laurie F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just a quick update… Since I started going to SF Cosmetic Dental group in July of this year, I’ve had a porcelain veneer re-installed (emergency) and a ‘not so good crown’ (work done by another dentist) expertly replaced by Dr. Roth. I scheduled a teeth cleaning for today and met Cindy the hygienist for the first time. Not only is she personable, her work is just incredibly thorough! The difference between my last cleaning elsewhere this past spring and today is like night and day. Thank you, Cindy!

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


Have to give a shoutout to Ruth at the front desk!  I recently got a new job and was having several insurance issues switching from our old Delta Dental to our new Delta Dental because in the meantime I had also gotten married and we switched from being on my husband’s insurance to mine.  Further, Delta Dental was extra confusion because my coverage if from the state of Colorado which apparently has entirely separate authorizations than the California branch of Delta Dental. Ruth figured all this out and was extremely patient while working to verify and ensure coverage for my visit, despite several delays while HR and the insurance company squared everything up. In addition to the front desk, Dr. Roth and the hygienists here are all awesome.  They are never running late, they are gentle with our teeth and we feel we get great dental care at this office!  We have been patients here for 10+ years and have referred several of our friends and coworkers, who also have been coming for many years. Highly recommend Dr. Roth and his team!!.

Raul G. from Santa Cruz, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to this office 3 times in the last week! Dr. Roth and Cindy have repaired YEARS of bad work done when I was a kid and teen. Dr. Roth is great at narrating the process throughout the visit. He definitely helps calms my crazy nerves as he details everything he’s doing, what I’m about to feel, and what I should expect after the visit. Everyone at this office is welcoming and accommodating.

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


I have been going to Dr. Roth’s office for more than 7 years. My mother works in the area and has been going there forever.  The staff is great, courteous and helpful.  But the main reason I have been going back year after year is because of Cindy, who is the hygienist there.  She’s great!  Always friendly, genuine, and is gentle when it comes to teeth cleanings.  I highly recommend going to Dr. Roth’s office.

Ronne M. from Mill Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Roth has been my dentist for over 25 years. Before that I hadn’t been to the dentist for a very long time because I am afraid of dentists. Dr Roth is gentle, thorough, and makes me feel relaxed (well, as relaxed as I can be in the dentist chair!) He thoroughly explains everything he is going to do. I’ve had everything from root canals to crowns to cavities to invisiligns. I wouldn’t dream of going to anyone else. Every one in the office is very professional and welcoming and I really appreciate that I can feel comfortable, even if he is a dentist!

Nick G. from Gourmet Ghetto, Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Superb!  Helpful staff. Excellent care and treatment. We rushed here after my dad’s bridge broke while eating at Pier 23 Cafe.  The dentist saw us, fixed the problem charged a fair price, and then did follow up work a few days later for free. My dad was visiting from Chicago and all of this frankly saved his vacation. Fantastic place!!

Lena T. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Roth is AMAZING!  When I say AMAZING – it really means FANTASTIC, TOP OF THE LINE, GREAT, etc. I unfortunately have had to see a dentist plenty in my life.  Dr. Roth and his assistant Marina definitely make me feel comfortable and relaxed as possible. Marina knows that I absolutely dislike going to the dentist – so she usually will try to distract me and take my mind of things. While Dr. Roth will tell me step by step process.  You probably would wonder, how this makes me feel better knowing the step by step, simply – I know what to expect and it takes away the whole unknown of what will be next constantly questioning myself. So this is my typical experience. And then, this last weekend ( please note the Dr and the staff do not work on the weekends)  – I had an emergency on Saturday – Dr. Roth and Marina saved the day.  Early afternoon, I had issues with my crown, and had to get the crown back in ASAP.  Yes, they both dropped everything to save my day by getting the crown back in.  As soon as I came home, I was able to stick to my plans and attend the event I had planned. Thank you many times for taking care of all my needs! Respectfully your patient.

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


I’m not one to write reviews but felt i needed to write one for Dr. Roth, Fadwa and Ruth. You walk in and it feels like family. My worries of being at the dentist disappear.  These team of people are awesome. From the front desk to the dentist chair. The thought of going to the dentist made me sick, that is a thing of the past. Go see Dr. Roth and his team, you won’t regret it and leave with a smile on your face.

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


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Roth’s for over eight years. He’s always pleasant, he’s skilled at what he does, clearly cares about his patients – and has THE best dental hygienist EVER in Cindy. She REALLY cleans those teeth like no other, but in an expert, gentle way. His admin staff is super helpful, knowledgable, and also kind and caring. His early morning (before work) appointments are a bonus, and there always seems to be parking places on the street available when I go (though there are several lots nearby if not). If he wasn’t great, I wouldn’t keep going to him. Highly recommend.

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


I’ve been going to doctor Roth since the 90’s maybe 15 or more years? He’s excellent. I haven’t had a lot of dental problems, but I had him replace my metal fillings with tooth-natural. A nice practice, nice people, current technology, and he has a nice manner and very skilled hands. I’m about to have some cosmetic done and have every confidence. Have had no reason to seek out another DDS.
