Dr. Dab has been our family dentist since 1992 when we relocated from Connecticut. We were referred to him by our Marin County pediatrician. From the beginning, he was a tremendous dentist for our two young children. He was kind and patient with them sensing exactly what they needed in order to examine them starting when the youngest was just a toddler. We decided to have him see us as well as the children and have never regretted our choice. Now that the children are grown and gone, we still continue to see Dr. Dab. He is keeping a careful eye on our teeth as we age. It is comforting to know the care we are receiving is state of the art and continues to meet our needs 100%.

We’ve been coming here for almost 30yrs and have received excellent care. Office is modern & they really care about their patients.
Dr Dab has been my Dentist for over 20 years and is the most professional, informative, gentle but assertive Dentist ever! He gets it done! Never unhappy with my result. He cares not only about the health of the teeth but the appearance he is meticulous about as well! He takes pride in his work! I strayed on accident due to a change in insurance and geography..but will not make that mistake again! He is worth the drive! He also has a tremendous memory and his service makes you feel welcomed! He is also a wonderful boss as it shows in his long time staff! They are just as amazing! Thank you Dr Dab!!!!

I've been visiting Dr. Dab for years and could not be happier with my dentist. Dr. Dab is personable and knowledgeable. He keeps up to date on technology in his practice, making my visits productive and efficient. He can mold, mill, and put in a crown in one visit! If you're looking for a new dentist, you should consider Dr. Dab.
Katherine E San Rafael CA
Dr. Dab is a phenomenal dentist. I was so lucky to find him when I did- after years of seeing a different dentist who had been negligent with my teeth, Dr. Dab fixed everything up for me. Dr. Dab is delightful to be around- always smiling and friendly and his entire staff is too. I look forward to visits! I highly recommend Dr. Dab, I wish I had started seeing him sooner!
Elizabeth G San Rafael CA
When I walk into the office, I get the feeling of calm professionalism. The staff is friendly and low-keyed. Having worked in dentistry for many years, I know immediately how an office is run. This practice is top notch, 100%. To be absolutely clear, this is the most comfort you will ever experience in a dental visit. Dr. Dab is an excellent and creative doctor. There is no rush, no hassle, just good dentistry. Go there. See.
Doris T San Rafael CA
In my experience there are only four people I need to know in life to be successful; a good accountant, mechanic, barber and dentist -- one down, three to go --

I actually like going to the dentist thanks to Dr. Dab! He is so informative and attentive. His office is equipped with technology that allows you to see firsthand what's going on inside your mouth. He was able to actually show me my cavities before filling them and the procedure was painless. Hillary is absolutely awesome and I've never had a better hygienist. She's friendly and takes the time to get to know me. She's always gentle and makes the process fun and quick. My dad and step-mom recommended Dr. Dab and I'm so glad I listened. I would definitely recommend Dr. Dab, he and his staff are phenomenal!

Dr. Michael Dab and his staff have done "the impossible"! Their skill, compassion, and mindfulness have converted me from someone extremely fearful of dentists, to someone who looks forward to their professional state-of-art care on a regular basis. They are always on schedule, take time to explain and answer questions; and, the office and treatment areas are impeccably clean and uncluttered. No matter the procedure, Dr. Dab spends time explaining every aspect; and involves the patient in the decisions and care plan. You owe it to yourself! I highly recommend Dr. Michael Dab for your dental care.
Frank G San Rafael CA
I have known Dr. Dab for over 20 years. He is not only an amazing dentist on caring for my teeth, recommending procedures to keep my teeth healthy but he is an expert on cosmetic dentistry. All his staff are friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Dab.
Dawn M San Rafael CA
I've been going to Dr. Dab for about 10 years now. Being one of those "fearful" dental patients, I have spent years avoiding the dentist until I'm in pain and have no choice but to go. Dr. Dab changed all that for me. He is kind, gentle, understanding and never tries to push me out of my comfort zone. His entire office staff is the same! I can't say that I love going to the dentist now, but I can say that I no longer hate it thanks to Dr. Dab!!
Joey C East Bay CA
I had a crown that kept coming out. I visited at least four top dentists in Marin and none of them could help me, they all said that the base of the tooth was too small to support the crown. I decided to give it one more dentist a try and went to Dr. Dab. Well, Dr. Dab fixed what none of the other top dentists could and twenty plus years and a ton of caramel chewing later, my crown hasn't budged! I trust Dr. Dab so much that when I moved to the outer reaches of the Sunset District in SF, I continued to go to him. That is one hour car drive each way. When I got married, I insisted my husband also make the drive, and he has not regretted it one bit. When my kids were of age to go to Dr. Dab, I started schlepping them too. Try him out. He is incredibly honest and skilled. Dr. Dab works hard to keep up on the latest and greatest new dental procedures. Oh yes, and he is 1000% honest. He will never suggest a procedure that is not totally necessary. Hate to say this but some medical professionals are not as honest. You will never catch Dr. Dab suggesting a procedure out of desire to make a boat payment! I am a picky (hypersensitive) as a dental patient is going to get. Dr. Dab is the best.
Caitlin C San Francisco CA
Dr. Dab is an absolutely amazing cosmetic dentist. He was referred to me by a close friend after she had gone to him for periodontal gum disease and oral surgery dental implants a few months ago and couldn't be happier with the turnaround. I had been thinking about dental veneers for years to fix some issues with my front teeth but I was hesitant to commit due to pricing and fear. I had a consultation and dental exam with Dr. Dab and felt like he sincerely cared about meeting my dental restoration goals. He explained the difference between porcelain crowns and veneers; and also how tooth whitening would assist me. You can tell he is an expert, providing his recommendations and expertise to help achieve my dental care goals. The dental staff is friendly and inviting, especially Hillary who now does the routine teeth cleanings and teeth fluoride treatments for my entire family! It has made a world of difference to not only my smile but my kids too. Now we can be proud rather than self-conscious of our teeth. My oldest daughter is even considering invisalign which was unheard of before she the Dab dentistry team. Thank you Dr. Dab for meeting and exceeding our dental needs!
Linda J San Rafael CA
Hello, my name is Kimiko and my family and I have had the absolute best dental experiences with Dr. Dab and the staff at Michael G. Dab, DDS Dentist in San Rafael. We come here for our routine preventive dental care to dental emergencies and everything in between! I have a very busy schedule but the cosmetic dentist and helpful dental technicians work to fit my kids and I in for dental exams, cleanings and x-rays accordingly. My porcelain veneers and one day ceramic dental crown that were done by Dr Dab are very naturally looking. I was very relieved I didn't need more invasive restorative work like dental implants. I receive compliments on my beautiful smile all the time now. My husband is also impressed and is looking at invisalign braces and teeth whitening at the conclusion. My son had a problem with sleep apnea that we felt may need oral surgery but Dr Dab's office were able to fit him with some dental devices that have done the trick. I will continue to bring my family here for dental consultations and treatments and recommend Michael G Dab as a one stop shop for dentistry needs. Whether you have a problem with tooth decay and need a filling to fill a cavity or need more serious root canal work or dental surgery, this dental clinic can handle any dental problem!
Kimiko H San Rafael CA
So my girlfriend had a very bad toothache, and wasn't able to sleep the night before. In the morning, I called Michael G. Dab, DDS dental's office and they were able to see her right away! She was in so much tooth pain. The dentist, Dr. Dab, did a dental examination and then an emergency tooth extraction because it had become too rotten. And now my girlfriend feels great and he will definitely be coming back to do future dental work here in San Rafael (she is already talking about teeth whitening and bleaching). My family has been going to this family dentist for years and I actually look forward to going there. Personally I've had two dental implants installed a couple of years ago and they feel like my own teeth! Last year I got a one day crown done and it was so convenient not to make a follow up visit. Everyone I have recommended go see them for a dental consultation has thanked me for the intro.
Brent C San Rafael CA
The entire staff at Dr. Dab's office is amazing. They take great care of their patients and our needs. Dr Dab recently fixed my cracked tooth and is a magician at what he does.
Also, they have a system that can text you about your upcoming appointments which has saved me numerous times.
Jaime F San Rafael CA
I have been going to Dr. Dab for many, many years now. I was approximately 10 years old at my first visit. Now at 34, I am still a fan! Sandy was my first hygienist when I initially started going to Dr. Dab. She was amazing and always made me feel comfortable. Today, Hillary gives me great care and leaves my teeth feeling squeaky clean! Tina, at the front desk is great! Keeps me scheduled and makes sure I never miss an appointment. With eleven fillings+, countless hygiene appointments, a few cosmetic corrections, I am so very pleased with Dr. Dab and his hardworking, caring, and knowledgeable staff. Dr. Dab is an exceptional dentist and I always feel welcomed and well taken care of. Thanks Dr. Dab and staff!
Sheetal A San Rafael CA
Our family has been going to Dr Dab for the past 25 years. Prior to moving here and meeting him as a neighbor I had lived in Southern CA and tried many dentists. They would always admire the beautiful dental work I had on a gold crown. Then when Dr Dab examined my mouth he said 'your dentist went to Northwestern and so did I. I have had the utmost confidence in him ever since!!
Amy T San Rafael CA
Dr. Dab and his staff are very friendly and professional. My husband and I have been going to him for 20+ years and travel a distance to his office just because I KNOW they'll do a good job every time. I am very happy with his work and would highly recommend him!
Veronica L San Rafael CA
My family has been going to Dr. Dab for 20 years and because of the staff we always look forward to our appointments. At one time I never would have said that. He and all his staff make you feel welcome and always do fantastic work. I have been diabetic for 50 years and that comes with challenges that Dr.Dab has always met with great success. I thank them with every smile!!
Carol G San Rafael CA
My family and I have being going to Dr. Dab for many years and we think he is caring, knowledgeable and maintains a an amazing staff. He's great!
Deb S San Rafael CA
I have been fortunate to have Dr Dab as my Dentist for over 20 years. He is extremely professional and knows how to handle my sensitivity to dental work. He has come to my aid many times when I have chipped a tooth or have need of immediate emergency repairs. He knows that Redheads have an extra need for more sedative and has been so kind. Thank you Dr. Dab!
Nicole T San Rafael CA
Dr. Dab and his staff do a wonderful job. From periodic cleanings to crown work, I have always been very satisfied and always look forward to my next visit. Very friendly as well as professional and quick.
Andy M San Rafael CA
For those old enough to remember... "a little Dab will do ya"!! When you make your appointment with Dr. Dab you can count on the best dental experience anyone can hope to have. The staff is friendly and the dental work is excellent. You can't beat getting a new crown in one appointment, in and out the door in two hours! I highly recommend Dr. Dab to all my friends and family and to the reader of this review as well.
Allen K San Rafael CA
A dental office can be a scary place. Dr. Dab and his excellent staff do a superior job of making you feel comfortable. The Hygienist was thoughtful and gentle; Dr Dab is a caring, professional and is an excellent clinician. I have been a patient for years and am happy to recommend his office!
Sandra K San Rafael CA
Dr. Dab and his staff have providing expert dental care to our family for over 20 years. Always professional, efficient, personable and accommodating. Michael also keeps up the latest best practices and technology. I highly recommend.
John C San Rafael CA
Dr. Dab and his whole staff are simply the best! I drive 3.5 hours to see Dr. Dab because he is cutting edge current with the newest techniques and equipment, he has good judgement and great techniques for making a smile look its best, whether you were born with good teeth or not. I was not born with good teeth, in fact I was missing two front teeth, and nobody can tell! I have had crowns, bridges, dental implants, and routine dental work done here with superb results. I know good dentistry because I worked in dental offices, and whenever I am go to a specialist (he will give you a great referral if the work is best done elsewhere) they comment on the high quality work, excellent technique, and the amazing visually aesthetic result he achieved with my difficult case. There is truly an art to the dentistry performed here. I had a dental emergency on Wed., I called the office at 4 pm and all the work was done by 2:30 the next day. They did not make me wait, they worked through lunch and were able to prep the area, make me a NEW crown right there in the office, and get it mounted in less than 24 hours, and it looks and feels great! I have been a patient for at least 20 years, I highly recommend this dentist. If you live in Humboldt, Mendocino, or Sonoma county it is worth the drive to Marin county to be treated by Dr. Dab, you will be treated right.
Chemaine V San Rafael CA
I have been a patient of Dr. Michael Dab for over 25 years. He has always been a great dentist, but also keeps improving his skills by acquiring the most up to date equipment in his office. He always has soothing music, and even TV to watch while you’re having your procedure. He is very gentle while working on you, and explains everything about what he is doing. I have never had any problems with the work he has done, such as crowns and fillings, and would recommend him highly to anyone who may be afraid of dentists. He is very good in getting your problem solved, and is usually finished before you realize. He is definitely an Artist in the dentistry field.
Ken S San Rafael CA
A happy place - no kidding! The staff and Dr. Dab make a visit to the dentist an enjoyable experience. The staff are committed to provide professional, excellent care and support to each patient. Dr Dab is very skilled, professional and incorporates the most current, tested technologies and techniques in his practice. I have had only extremely positive experiences at Dr. Dab's office. My grown children and I will continue to see Dr Dab for many more years!
Alison W San Rafael CA
I just had my first procedure with my new Dentist, Dr. Michael Dab DDS, and I couldn't be happier. I had a crown put in, and for the first time in my life I walked away, pain free, with no did-comfort to my tooth, cheek, neck or back, it was wonderful, and I have a severe neck & back injury. Dr. Dab cares, and is gentle with his patients, he takes his time, and does things right the first time, his work reflects the high demand of excellence he gives to his patients, and he goes out of his way to make his patents comfortable. I'm not going to say any more. If you're looking for an excellent Dentist, who cares, and is pain free, give Dr. Michael Dab a call, you'll be glad you did.
Nina M San Rafael, CA
Going to the dentist of course is never our favorite thing, but Dr. Dab and his staff make going such a pleasure that I actually look forward to my appointments! Although experiencing some pain is never avoidable, Dr. Dab takes all of the steps necessary to make you feel comfortable, and the procedure is always as painless as possible.
His staff is so sweet, and makes scheduling my appointments super easy. I have a hard schedule to deal with due to school, and they are always so accommodating every time I have a schedule change. If you're looking for a great dentist, look no further!! My whole family goes here and has always had great experiences.
Chloe M San Rafael, CA
This is a great Dental office. I have had a few emergencies where Dr. Dab was able to see me immediately. He has always spent the extra time to explain my treatment, and preform the procedures. I am amazed at the quickness he can fix problems, and the facilities to serve and treat patients extremely well. This is truly a great Dentist, and he has wonderful assistance staff. Routine visits are also great.
Steven C San Rafael CA
Dr. Dab is a wonderful dentist! I say this as a retired RDH who has seen lots of dentistry and dentists. Dr. Dab is definitely at the top of his profession. He has a great chairside manner which made me feel welcome and comfortable. His technique is gentle, caring, and precise. I saw Dr. Dab for a bridge to replace a deciduous cuspid. I left the office 2 hours later with a beautiful result, and I watched a movie while I was there!
Dr. Dab also has a very competent and friendly staff. I'm looking forward to my next visit.
Barbara W San Rafael, CA

Jeanine S San Rafael, CA
I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with Michael Dabb, DDS and his wonderful staff. I've been a patient of Doctor Dabb since I was 5 years old and unfortunately had to switch dental plans when I turned 26. Finding a new dentist that I trusted was not an easy feat. I was given some bad dental advice and reached out to Dr Dabb for a second opinion. He was extremely sympathetic of my situation and offered to take a second look. I had teeth cleaned and polished by Hillary. Dr Dabb put in three fillings and was very attentive to my comfort level and made sure I was okay throughout the procedure. Dr. Dabb also showed me pictures prior to doing any work and explained to me what he would be doing on my next visit. The pictures helped me understand the "why" behind the procedure which put me at ease. I experienced no pain during the procedure. Dr. Dabb worked quickly and efficiently. Most of all, he got my bite perfect. I've referred all of my friends, family, coworkers, who are looking for a dentist to Dr. Dabb because I truly believe his work is top tier. You can always trust in his work and judgement. He also saved me money that would have been spent on unnecessary dental work. I couldn't be more appreciative!

My family and I have being going to Dr. Dab for many years and we think he is caring, knowledgable and maintains a an amazing staff. He's great!
