General Dentist

Dr. Emma Pollack

Dr. Pollack grew up in Southern California and attended the University of California Santa Barbara for her undergraduate studies. She graduated from Rutgers Dental School in New Jersey in 2013. After completing her dental residency in New York City, she moved to the East Bay Area and has since been practicing there as a family dentist. She also volunteers her time at the Berkeley Free Dental Clinic.

Dr. Pollack has a very warm and personal approach with her patients and knows that one treatment option does not fit all. She believes it is important for a patient to be fully informed in order to make the best decisions for their oral health. She prides herself in her ability to listen to her patient's needs and ease their anxieties.

When she’s not providing exceptional dental care for her patients, you might find her hiking around the Bay Area with her husband, daughters, and the family dog.

Periodontist / Implant Surgeon

Dr. Dave Rustamzadeh

Dr. David Rustamzadeh, or as we like to call him, Dr. Dave was raised in Almaden Valley in San Jose, California. He attended Leland High School and earned his Bachelors from Santa Clara University. He then went on to get his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from NYU followed by a residency program in General Dentistry. Following his residency program, Dr. Dave successfully completed a Post-Graduate Periodontics program at Boston University where he earned a Certificate of Periodontology concomitant with a Master of Science in oral biology.

After a year of private practice in Manhattan, he decided it was time to move back to his home in the Bay Area. He has now been serving patients in the Bay Area since 2006 and joined our practice in 2023. Dr. Dave comes in monthly to help our patients with periodontal and implant therapy.
