Our Green Mission

As challenging as it is for a dental office to "go green", we have strived to take some measures that will reduce a negative ecological impact on our global environment. Some of the main green measures we have taken so far include:


  1. Office furnishings mainly manufactured from recycled materials and low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds)
  2. Electronic software to reduce the use of paper products
  3. Electronic filing of insurance claims to reduce paper waste as well as the use of the postal service
  4. Energy-Star rated computers and appliances 
  5. High-efficiency heating and cooling systems with regulated thermostats
  6. Computers set on Energy Conservation mode
  7. Use of mainly recycled paper products as well as recycled ink and toner cartridges
  8. Proper sorting/recycling of all waste categories
  9. Implementation of a completely paperless office by 2012!


  1. Digital Radiography (minimal radiation to patients and no films or processing chemicals used)
  2. Instrument sterilization:metal Cassette system when possible (to reduce the use of plastic bags)
  3. Amalgam Separator System (allows to eliminate and isolate mercury waste safely instead of dumping in the Bay)
  4. Use of mainly inert dental materials (no mercury fillings or volatile compounds used)
  5. Use of hospital-grade non-aerosol sanitizers for surfaces
  6. Insulated hot water lines
  7. Insulated filtered water lines

I never thought I would say I enjoy going to the dentist , but these two really elevate the practice of dentistry! I travel from the East Bay to attend my appointments and despite the morning traffic, I would never consider going anywhere else. Here are the things that, in my opinion, really make Dr. Ramirez and Dr. Karimi shine:
(1) They are very personable and easy to talk to - When I was looking for housing in the Bay Area, Dr. Karimi went out of her way to write down some areas for me to look. Who does that? Awesome dentists who care, that's who!

(2) They don't try to sell me services I don't need - I hate it when dentists try to sell you all sorts of fancy procedures/items you don't really need. These two would never do that!

(3) A focus on preventative care - Even though the money maker in dentistry is probably fixing bad teeth, both dentists emphasize preventative care. it's the first practice I've been to where their immediate response isn't to drill and fill!

(4) Email reminders before an appointment - I am really bad with the phone, so the email appointment reminders are a godsent!

Everyone in this office is FABULOUS!

My wife first heard about David and Katy through SFSPCA, and after the first appointment she couldn't stop raving about her visit! I was suspicious at first, since it's unusual to have a pleasant dentist visit. But then she went for a second visit, third visit, and the service and people were consistently excellent.

Finally I got very lucky and was able to schedule an appointment to experience this myself, and GOSH DR. RAMIREZ SERIOUSLY IS THE BEST DENTIST I'VE HAD! Super careful and professional, explained every step of the way and really funny to chat with lol

Sun, Joanne, Rita were all amazing and super helpful as well.

Thank you so much, everybody!!

Dr. Ramirez and Dr. Karimi have been my dentists for almost a decade now and they are by far the best dentists I have ever had. Dr. Karimi is amazing and gives so much personal attention she makes you feel very at ease. They truly care about you and your health. Dr. Karimi has helped me over the years to have better dental hygiene and it shows in how much better my teeth have gotten the last decade. I panic about one day moving as I know I will never find a better dental office than here. They really are the best and would recommend them to anyone.
