A Message from Dr. Gustavson

Dentistry is not a job or a profession for me. Rather, it is my passion to give people a smile they can be confident with and they can trust.

About Dan Gustavson

Dr. Gustavson, called either Dan or Dr. Dan by his patients, earned his BA in Biological Sciences from UC Davis, and his DDS and BS in Dental Science from UC San Francisco School of Dentistry. After completing his residency program at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Washington, DC, he set up practice in the Glen Park area of San Francisco. In the Fall of 2009, the Glen Park practice was sold and Dr. Dan and Dr. Mai-Ly moved to lovely Placer County, bringing their talents and skills with them!

“My wife and I had our initial visit and cleaning with Dr. Mai-ly. I also had root canal with Dr. Dan Gustavson. Both doctors were very sensitive to our dental needs, very pleasant, helpful and explained and answered all our questions. The doctors, our hygienist Dee Dee and the staff made sure that we were comfortable in all the procedures. Thank you so much for taking good care of us!!”
