DOUGLAS R. ROTH, DDS
Hello, I’m Dr. Douglas Roth. I was raised in Saratoga, CA. I’m a Board-certified general dentist who did my undergraduate studies at Walla Walla College and received my Doctorate in Dental Surgery degree from Loma Linda University in 1986. My father, Robert L. Roth, M.D., was a family physician in the San Jose area for 40 years. I first opened my practice alongside him and practiced in the same office with him until he decided to downsize his practice in preparation for retirement. At this time, I relocated my office to the Willow Glen area of San Jose. I have enjoyed being part of a small family community, participating with my family in many local events. I belong to a number of dental organizations: Santa Clara County Dental Society (SCCDS), California Dental Association (CDA) and American Dental Association (ADA). In 2006 and 2008, I was voted by the Willow Glen Resident as “Best Dentist in Willow Glen.”
I have devoted my professional career to all aspects of general dentistry with special interests in the area of cosmetic dentistry. To keep abreast of the latest developments in dentistry, I have stayed current in the latest techniques through advanced cosmetic courses on porcelain veneers and composite bonding. My hobbies include running, cycling, mountain climbing, camping, racquetball and piano. I’ve been married for 33 years to my wife, Carrie. We have 3 children: Jeffrey, Sean and Kristine.
