How to Choose the Best Dentist & Staff
What is the most important thing you should look for in your dentist? We firmly believe it is vital to look into the qualifications, knowledge, and expertise of the dentist when choosing the best dentist. Similar to other people, the dentist gets better at things the more they practice it. Ideally, your best dentist will have lots of experience with dentistry in general and cases like yours specifically.
These days some dental offices try to commercialize their practice by providing unnecessary services in what is called Spa Dental offices like body massages, facials, etc. But, is it necessary to have an extravagant office facility to be able to provide best dental care? Our patients don’t visit us expecting a super-fancy office or because of our free dental offers; they come to us because they value Dr. Antonius’s expertise and our compassionate office staff that is there for them whenever they need. Sunnyvale Dental Care believes in delivering what is of the most significant value to our patients- gentle & expert dental care.
The best dentists didn’t just go to dental school but also opted for extensive post-graduate training programs to excel in performing various dental procedures. Also, the best dentists often attend ongoing education classes to stay current on new procedures and materials.
Dr. Nasser Antonious completed his graduation degree from the Alexandria Dental School, Alexandria, Egypt. He finished his dental degree in 1980 and obtained his California Dental License in 1989. He is also an active member of many prestigious societies and associations including The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the California Dental Association, The American Association of Hospital Dentists (AAHD), The Academy of Dentistry for Persons with Disabilities (ADPD), Santa Clara Dental Society, the American Dental Association, The Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS ), The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and The American Society for Geriatric Dentistry (ASGD). He is a seasoned dental professional who also understands the value of being aware of the latest advancement in dental technology and approaches, hence attends several conferences and meetings every year.
Dr. Antonious participated in the hands-on workshop of Advanced Concepts in Cosmetic Dentistry Program at The Northern California Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry. This applied program focuses on dental cosmetics and full mouth reconstruction and rehabilitation. He also attended the classes for The Concepts of Complete Dentistry and completed Levels I, II and III with the internationally recognized Dr. Peter Dawson, at The Dawson Academy in Florida.

At Sunnyvale Dental Care, Dr. Antonious sees patients of all ages; we also welcome new patients to come in for an Initial no-obligation consultation, which allows us to converse with them and understand their concerns or questions. Dr. Antonious has a great way of making anxious patients calm and relax, and he strikes a conversation whenever he sees fit during the consultation, and it comes naturally to him as he has been doing this for many years. He is fluent in English and Arabic and can make small conversations in Spanish as well. One of his best qualities as a dentist is how he listens to patient’s apprehensions and has a discussion that answers their questions.
He is an honest dental practitioner with high values and regards for his patients and office staff, his first approach to all dental problems is always aligned with conservative dentistry avoiding any unnecessary dental procedures unless it is essential. Sunnyvale Dental Care patients value his dental opinion and trust him for his expert advice. Therefore we often see many second-opinion appointment requests at our office.
