About Dr. Creese
Richard Creese, DDS, has been serving the dental needs of patients from all over the Bay Area for over 20 years at his welcoming office in the Union Square neighborhood of San Francisco, California.
Having grown up in rural Michigan, Dr. Creese received his dental degree at the University of Michigan, a school continually ranked at the top of all U.S. Dental Schools. Prior to dental school, he studied chemistry and music at Central Michigan University.
Upon graduation from the University of Michigan, he received oral surgery training at the Melbourne Dental Hospital in Australia, where he was introduced to their minimally invasive extraction techniques. His extensive continuing education studies primarily focus on root canals (endodontics), dentures, and other facets of cosmetics dentistry.
Dr. Creese previously spent 15 years offering “crisis” dentistry through Potter Valley Community Health Center in rural Mendocino County. He worked weekends providing emergency dental care for toothaches, fractures, infections, as well as extractions and denture services.
Outside of the office, Dr. Creese enjoys playing tennis, golf, and snow skiing. When he does find time to slow down, he enjoys music, carpentry, antique clock repair, and tuning up and tooling around in a 1960 TR3 — the first car he ever owned!
Dr. Creese and his wife live in the West Portal district of San Francisco. He is an active member of the Olympic Club and Calvary Presbyterian Church.
