Daman Saini, DDS

One of Dr. Daman Saini’s favorite quotes is “Good is the enemy of Great.” A bay area native, raised in San Jose, he attended and graduated as a valedictorian from Independence High School.  Three years later, he graduated Magna Cum Laude (top 3%) from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences.  Dr. Saini received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of California, San Francisco School of Dentistry.  During his fourth year of dental school, he completed an externship in oral surgery at Louisiana State University. After dental school, Dr. Saini was selected for a one year General Practice Residency at the VA Palo Alto Medical Center, where he treated hundreds of medically compromised and fearful patients in a hospital setting.  He joined the Valley Oak Dental Group family in 2004.

Being committed to continuing education and having a passion for cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Saini trained and studied the art of creating beautiful smiles and enhancing existing ones at the UCLA Aesthetic Continuum.  With guidance from renowned dental experts, he was exposed to the newest scientific concepts and developments in aesthetic treatment modalities, including composites, conservative porcelain veneers, digital dental photography, shade selection, and smile design.

“It is truly gratifying to have the opportunity to alleviate another’s pain or improve their self-confidence by creating a healthy, functional and confident smile,” says Dr. Saini.   “My goal is to provide exceptional, comprehensive dental care to my patients in a friendly and caring environment, educating and encouraging them toward a state of optimal oral health.”

When Dr. Saini is not busy providing excellent dental service, he enjoys weight training, doing small projects around the house, travelling and spending quality time with his family.  He is a bay area sports fan, and a big supporter of his favorite teams — the Warriors, Giants, and 49ers.
