Family Care

As a family dentist, Dr. Eccles sees dental patients in Livermore of all ages. Dr. Eccles likes a child’s first dental visit before age 2. Most children are able to tolerate treatment without nitrous oxide and they also become more confident in facing and handling a new situation without needing drugs to temper their normal fear and anxiety. Rest assure we do not introduce toxic mercury amalgam fillings, nor shiny metal crowns to children.

Root Canals

Some say that all “root canals” are bad. It is bad to keep a treated or untreated tooth in your mouth that is still infecting your body 24 hours a day. Bacteria, their toxins, and the inflammation products spread via the blood stream to the rest of the body. This is what occurs with traditional gutta percha filling material. It is true that with only the main canal(s) filled most pain and swelling does subside.

Gum Therapy

Gum infections and problems are caused by microscopic organisms mostly bacteria (including spirochetes) protozoa’s, yeast and viruses. Surgery does nothing to resolve the true cause of infection. The gums can get re-infected over time because of the unhealthy conditions of the body. At our dental practice in Livermore we deep clean into the pocket, irrigate the pockets at each cleaning or root planning appointment with natural antimicrobials including ozone therapy. This reduces the amount of bacteria that can get into your bloodstream from open blood vessels in bleeding gums, and decreases inflammation

For the first time EVER, I enjoyed going to the dentist. The staff was cool (weird description for an office, huh?), fun, happy and helpful. I learned a lot about how to better clean my teeth during the appointment (practices I’ll definitely implement for the rest of my life) and my discounted teeth whitening worked instantly. I’m actually looking forward to my next appointment in six months! Thank you!

Need dental care?
You’ve come to the right place. My name is Nancy Daniel and I have been a patient of Dr. Eccles in Livermore for about 2 years or more. He is a perfectionist dentist and he did much needed work to my lower teeth and I must add, they look and feel great!

He’s also did a lot of dental work for my husband who has been a very satisfied patient for at least 20 years. Dr. Eccles helps one feel at ease; he is gentle, kind, caring, patient and thorough. His dental office in Livermore is clean and organized, his staff are friendly and supportive. They are awesome! I highly recommend our family dentist in Livermore Dr. Eccles and his staff to care for your beautiful smile!
