Dr. Valentine Sviatocha (aka Dr. Valentine) moved to the Bay Area three years ago with his wife and his son. Dr. Valentine has completed his undergraduate BS degree at Northwestern University, and graduated from New York University College of Dentistry in 2011 at the top 5% of his class. After graduation Dr. Valentine has joined the US Navy as a dental officer, where he progressed his training in Advance Education in General Dentistry residency and extensive oral surgery training. During his service Dr. Valentine served over 3000 US Sailors and Marines as a solo dentist on a navy combat ship, USS Bonhomme Richard. His exposure to extensive treatment needs in root canals and management of infections led him to fall in love with endodontics. He pursued advance specialty training in root canals at UCSF Post Graduate Endodontic residency. During his residency Dr. Valentine focused on becoming an expert in diagnosis and treatment of root canal diseased teeth, and gave back to the community by volunteering his time at CDA Cares, UCSF Community Clinic for the underserved, and by teaching UCSF dental students. Dr. Valentine strives to provide most compassionate and ethical care, while continuously keeping up with current research and treatment methods.
In his spare time Dr. Valentine loves spending time with his wife and his son, swimming, traveling and exploring the Bay Area. Making time and effort to keep up with friends and family is his personal priority, as a balanced life is a happy life.
