Excellent Dentist
I switched to Dr. Keith Johnson 6 months ago. I was really impressed with his knowledge and quality of work so have followed him to this new location.

Excellent Treatment
I’m having a cracked crown replaced. The treatment I have received at Dr. Citrin’s office is outstanding, far more professional and informative than I have previously seen in my 69 years. Dr. Citrin and his assistant (Erin) are efficient, knowledgeable and go beyond expectation to explain every step in their treatment process. It’s rare to find this kind of service. I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience. We need more professionals like this!!

Cannot Recommend
Really friendly, great cleaning and awesome hygienist however non ideal interaction with the DDS (not Citrin but rather Johnson), so therefore I would not recommend this dentist. He was not familiar with my treatment plan (UCSF SDF protocol (Horst, et al., 2016), conservative approach, denied the fact that remineralization of tooth structure occurs (Murdock-Kinch and McLean, 2014), etc). During consultation he stated that "decay is decay is decay is decay is decay is decay..." and a "cavity is a cavity is a cavity is a cavity..." which is circular reasoning not supported by facts or evidence. He stated all decay needs to be drilled away, which is a false dichotomy and not supported by facts or evidence (See circular reasoning and false dichotomy; Douglas and David, 1989). He did not seem interested in analyzing my past treatment plan or reviewing the most recent peer reviewed literature to construct an empirically informed and validated treatment plan moving froward. He was not willing to explain the suggested treatment plan (suggested that a tooth treated with SDF had decay that needed to be drilled however it was simply arrested and discolored from the SDF treatment) or provide my imaging studies for further analysis. He did not make any effort to engage in shared clinical decision making, which is an empirically validated corner-store of modern efficacious clinical care (Glyn, et al., 2012). He even went so far as to suggest he would not listen to what patients want or have to say in regard to treatment or care. I was not provided an invoice/receipt or any breakdown of the costs or suggested treatment plan. When I asked for an explanation of the first visit costs ($185 USD), the receptionist read from a post-it note rather than provide written confirmation or explanation, which while fine is not a transparent and organized means of operating a clinical practice. In consideration of the above - I cannot recommend this dentist. References Elwyn, Glyn, Dominick Frosch, Richard Thomson, Natalie Joseph-Williams, Amy Lloyd, Paul Kinnersley, Emma Cording et al.
