Periodontist - Gregory Steiner, D.D.S., M.S.

Gregory Steiner, D.D.S., M.S.
Periodontist Bone regeneration and Implants

Gentle Dental ~ Blue Oak
15 Sierra Gate Plaza | Roseville
916-786-6777  |

Gentle Dental ~ Blue Oak, serving the Roseville community for 20 years, has the honor and privilege of working with a leading biotechnology company, Steiner Laboratories and periodontist, Gregory Steiner, D.D.S., M.S.  He brings the latest techniques in implant placement and regenerative medicine to meet your dental needs.  While all of our dentists are skilled in rebuilding smiles, Dr. Steiner specializes in rebuilding the facial structure as well.  He is often able to regenerate lost bone for patients that have been told, “….it can’t be done.”  

Dr. Steiner recognizes the future of dental care is restoring health with the goal of achieving ideal esthetics and optimum function. Facial appearance is a result of the bones and muscle that support our skin. When teeth are lost, the bone that supports the teeth and face shrinks. This can result in an inadequate amount of bone for implants and unfortunate changes in facial appearance.

If you have been informed that you do not have enough bone for implants, or you are unhappy with the option you’ve been given, our regenerative techniques can rebuild lost tissue and often return you to normal form and function. If you have been told your teeth cannot be saved due to bone loss, Dr. Steiner has pioneered methods of regenerating bone.  If you have been advised to have a graft material that uses cadaver, animal extracts or transplants from other parts of your own body, but are looking for another option, we use tissue engineering methods that work with your own regenerative cells.

We invite you to call for an opportunity to combine the skills of our excellent clinicians with a leading biotechnology company to create a custom solution designed around your treatment goals.

25 years of surgical experience creates a high level of surgical skills, however, Dr. McIntire believes good communication with his patients creates good rapport and trust. He spends time really listening to his patient’s needs, wants and desires which is equally important to surgical skill. Dr. McIntire is a patient rights advocate and his highest priorities are honesty, patient safety, communication, comfort and privacy.

Dr. McIntire understands the troubles our poor economy has caused for all of us. For this reason he has reduced his fees for all procedures and utilizes flexible payment arrangements. Dr. McIntire loves his profession and is very confident in his surgical skills. Above all he believes that good communication and spending time listening to his patients are the most important services he can provide. Flexible financial arrangements and lower fees make surgical treatment more affordable.

Dr. McIntire is board certified in anesthesia and has had extensive experience and training over 25 years in dental implants. He has a BS from UCLA and did his oral and maxillofacial surgery training and residency at UCLA Medical Center. Dr. McIntire maintains memberships in several professional societies including the prestigious American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
