Garth B. Riopelle,
Doctor of Dental

Dr. Riopelle sees himself as a dental artist and craftsman that is able to restructure and recreate your smile, so that it is the way you want it to be. He has experience in all types of procedures from full mouth reconstructions to porcelain veneers, and complex dental implants.

Dr. Riopelle is always at the leading edge of dentistry and updated technologies. He was the first dentists in the tri valley areas to provide the latest cad-cam technology, CEREC. Dr. Riopelle has placed more than 5,000 same-day crowns since 2005.

He completed additional training in Implantology in 2012 , and was awarded a Fellowship by THE INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF ORAL IMPLANTOLOGISTS. This not only demonstrates his expertise , but speaks to the fact that his skills are so highly respected that he was invited to travel to Vietnam in 2014 where Hiossen (a company that makes superior implants) sponsored a Humanitarian project where he performed multiple procedures and also taught dental providers there the advanced techniques in surgical placement and restoration of dental implants.

In recent years there has been a dramatic flooding of the market for providers of Dentistry in our growing community. Frankly, because the supply of new Dental offices far exceeds the need, most of them do not last long……

We know you want a Dentist who rises above the rest.

How can a patient know which Dentist that is?

Considering Dr. Riopelles multiple awards for Excellence since early in his career, and the respect he has been given by other long term HEALTH CARE providers in Contra Costa County, his successful longevity in the area, and as well as the ENDLESS compliments and repetitive referrals coming from his long term patients and their families it is easy to see that he is THAT DENTIST.

His concern for quality in our local Dental Community extended to his membership in the Contra Costa Dental Society Peer review board for over 10 years. His duties included reviewing Dental case reports and delivering his opinion regarding whether or not appropriate care was delivered by other Providers. This membership was by invitation of the review board themselves, and reflects the high level of respect he is given by other Dental Surgeons who have also been in the community for some time.

Dr. Garth Riopelle has always been active in both International and community service. He has multiple Paul Harris Fellowships from Rotary International after over 20 years of membership in our local Rotary Club in San Ramon. He has also been a favorite Head coach for kids in our San Ramon Valley for over 20 years. His coaching encompassed a variety of youth sports: San Ramon Soccer league, Mustang Soccer, San Ramon Little League Baseball, CYO Basketball, and Lafayette Roller Hockey. For over 13 years he has also contributed to secure safety in Youth sports by Umpiring little league Baseball games, and refereeing Competitive Soccer. He is a proud father of three very successful young men.

He is looking forward to continuing to give his patients the absolute best of care for many years to come.

Just as he always has…..and he is here to STAY!
