"I, like many people, hate going to the dentist. But Dr. Kivel isn't any dentist. He isn't the ubiquitous "the" people refer to when talking about dentists. He is incredibly professional, doesn't try to push procedures on you, and has the chill demeanor of a surfer Buddha - which you really appreciate when sharp objects are being placed in your mouth. I will never go back to "the" dentist again."

"I was having an issue with a crown and experiencing some pain from a nearby tooth. I sent Dr. Kivel a message. He was quick to contact me and set up a time to meet to take care of it. That may not sound so extraordinary except it was a Saturday afternoon. He along with his wife Ryann, met me at his office and took care of the issue. Who does that? Thank you Aron and Ryann for going the extra mile!"
"Prior to meeting Dr. Kivel, the thought of a visit to the dentist brought a lot of anxiety and apprehension. I even managed to dodge all orthodontic appointments as a child and entered adulthood with extreme overcrowding of my bottom teeth. Dr. Kivel is thoughtful and caring. He truly cares about providing long-term care for all his patients and he immediately addresses your concerns."

Speaking with my father during his last days, he asked me to please let his patients know just how much each one of you meant to him. He was truly honored that you entrusted him with your dental care. He told me that it was an absolute privilege to be your dentist ...
Dear Patients, Colleagues and Friends,
The time has finally come for me to retire from dentistry. Some people lately have been inquiring as to "When?". As much as I have been enjoying my practice, I was reticent to retire due largely to a lack of finding a qualified successor, a situation that changed with my fortuitous introduction to Dr. Aron Kivel.
Aron is a highly skilled, experienced and personable dentist from San Francisco. He graduated from ...
