Best Sunnyvale Dentist Team – Caring, Compassionate, Dedicated
Our team of passionate dental professionals averages a remarkable sixteen and a half years of dental experience. Our patients have found themselves a “second home” – a warm, friendly and comfortable place.
Both of our Doctors also take a very active role in communication and continuing education regularly with the entire staff. They respect and welcome input from the staff, as the staff does with the practice/patient family.
At Griffith Family Dental we believe that simply addressing a patient’s symptoms is the equivalent of doing little more than applying a Band-Aid; it doesn’t get to the core of the problem, and therefore doesn’t apply true, lasting, healing solutions. That’s why our comprehensive examination and treatment processes are focused on the wellness of the whole individual, focused on total preventative and restorative health. This starts with recognizing that no two people or situations are exactly the same; we approach each individual in a customized way so that we can create a plan that’s tailored to their unique, specific needs.

AAAHC certified – Certification by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare is a process through which a health care organization is able to measure the quality of its services and performance against nationally-recognized Standards.
The accreditation process involves self-assessment by the organization, followed by thorough on-site review by the AAAHC’s expert surveyors, who are themselves, health care professionals. The AAAHC Certificate of Accreditation is a sign that an organization IS committed to providing high-quality care. At Griffith Family Dental we believe the continual process of self-evaluation, peer review and consultation involved in accreditation helps an organization improve its health care and services.
