Rob Oliver, D.D.S.

Dr. Rob loves working with kids of all ages and wants to show all of his patients how going to the dentist can be fun, especially with his magic tricks! His goal is to have kids grow up fearless in a dental setting and, equally as important, teaching families and kids the skills that will help keep their dental visits to a minimum. Starting them off early will lead to a lifetime of prevention.

Providing a compassionate, friendly, and fun environment for children is such a privilege. It is also one of the main reasons I decided to become a pediatric dentist. I feel grateful to have the opportunity to build a trusting relationship with the families in our community. And nothing makes me happier than to see the children leave after their visit with a big smile on their face! It is very rewarding to help create a positive and lasting impact on a child’s lifelong oral health. I look forward to meeting you and being of service.

I am a native of Chicago, Illinois. I have found Northern California to be a beautiful place and am very happy to call Sonoma County my new home. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, yoga, gardening, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

Paula
Office Administration/Financial Coordinator

A comfortable environment, working with positive people, and seeing positive outcomes are a few reasons why my job is so rewarding here at Dr. Oliver’s. Every day is a new opportunity to greet our families, work with their insurance coverage and personal finances, and make sure that their children receive the care and treatment they need and deserve. Our doctors and their assistants are simply the best, and it is inspiring to watch our children gain the confidence and skills necessary for a lifetime of beautiful smiles! I am a very lucky mother and grandmother of two grown sons and two beautiful grandchildren. Hiking, beachcombing, gardening and traveling are a few of my favorite pastimes.


Karen
Treatment/Scheduling Coordinator

I have been enjoying pediatric dentistry for more than 25 years. I am a registered dental assistant, although you are likely to receive a friendly greeting from me upon your first phone call or visit to our office. It is such a pleasure meeting the families of our community and watching the children grow up in our dental home. I always do my best to keep a smooth running schedule and respect the time and effort our families take to be here. I love working with parents and patients to help them understand the treatment recommendations and receive the care they deserve. I hope that all our families feel that they are among friends in our practice. Our entire team treats everyone with kindness and compassion in the most beautiful surroundings anyone could ask for. My home is in this wonderful County of Sonoma where I enjoy a healthy lifestyle with my husband, two adult sons and extended family and friends.

I have been with Dr. Oliver since 1998 and have had a great time working with children. “Kids DO say the darndest things!” I try to keep everyone’s experience positive and happy. Our goal as a team and individually is to banish dental fear and anxiety for life! I live in Sonoma County and am frequently recognized by our patients—it’s a good feeling when they run up with an enthusiastic HI! I enjoy my job, the people I work with, and the opportunity to help children.

I love and enjoy working with kids and making them feel at ease. Being able to turn a new (scary?) experience of the dental world into a fun, magical place is what I enjoy most of all. I have a young son of my own and can relate to concerns parents may have. My goal is to have every child have a positive, happy experience in our office and want to come back for another great visit!

I love to see kids have a positive experience in our dental office! For nearly 25 years I have been able to see this happen as a registered dental assistant. What a privilege it is for me to serve families in our community. My time at work is really special “family” time because I am able to work side-by-side with my brother, Dr. Oliver! My husband, Chris, and I have two wonderful children, Simon and McKenna.

I am a registered dental assistant for our team and it feels great to be part of such a skillful group of individuals. We strive to make our patients feel secure during their dental experience, and hope that everyone leaves our office with a smile on their face. It is so rewarding for me to make a difference in children’s oral hygiene as well as their overall health! Informing parents about their child’s dental well-being and helping them understand all the aspects of good oral care is one of the most important parts of my job. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Sonoma State University, and also was a member of their women’s soccer team for four years. I enjoy outdoor activities and spending valuable time with family and friends.

History

Dr. Our office has been serving families in Sonoma County, Mendocino County and Lake County for over 30 years. Rob Oliver, a native of Sonoma County, began his pediatric dental career in 1998 in Sebastopol, California when his father, also a pediatric dentist, retired and turned over his rural practice to his son.  As Dr. Oliver’s reputation grew, so did the practice and the need for more space.  In early 2006, he opened a second office in Windsor.

Prevention Dentistry

Our emphasis is on preventative dental care.  Dr. Oliver believes in preventing costly dental repairs by diagnosing early when they are still small and manageable.  Proper Hygiene techniques combined with regular office check ups (about every six months beginning at the age of two) are a must in curbing larger dental problems.  This process also allows your child to have positive dental experiences.

Technology

We have continued to grow and change with technology and are proud to offer digital radiography, air abrasion, general anesthesia and conscious sedatives.  We are an amalgam-free dental office.

Community Outreach  

As a gift to our communities, Dr. Oliver has prepared an educational dental prevention program for our preschools and elementary classrooms.  Our Registered Dental Assistants lead an entertaining presentation that focuses on the importance of a healthy and beautiful smile.  Fun props and storyboards are used to motivate daily brushing and flossing habits, and healthy food choices are discussed.  We also invite classrooms to plan a field trip to our Windsor or Sebastopol office where they can explore and learn about dental care in our fun dental office environment.
