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

Dr. Eccles is a wonderful and very knowledgeable dentist. He doesn't waste any time to help you find relief and get to the root of your issues. His staff is also very friendly, accommodating, and easy to work with. I travel 1.5 hours to see him and it has been well worth the drive each time. Highly recommend to anyone in the Bay or surrounding areas.

This was hands down the best experience I have had with a dentist. I took in my 2 year old daughter and had my other two children in tow. Dr Eccles immediately came out to greet the children and talk to them about the jellyfish in the waiting area. He was kind, gentle, non-judmental, and came up with a reasonable plan given the age of my youngest child. I felt safe, well taken care, and not at all stressed during the entire visit. I am beyond thrilled to find a local dentist who aligns with the type of care I want for my family.

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!
