Meet The Doctor

Dr. Joey Salaveria

Dr. Joey Salaveria received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from De Ocampo Memorial College and has been in practice since 1988.  He had his own private practice in Honolulu, Hawaii before relocating to the Bay Area. Today after 16 years of practice in the East Bay, Dr. J as his patients fondly call him, had successfully built two locations in Concord and Vallejo to better serve his patients.

Dr. Salaveria enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, showing a particular interest in restorative and minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry. He is very passionate about providing the highest quality pain-free dental care using the latest technology available. His patient-centered approach lies at the heart of gentle and compassionate care.

In addition, Dr. Salaveria is committed to community service and has been involved in his church's outreach program in West Africa where he volunteered his time and skills to help those who do not have the access to dental care.

In his free time, he loves spending time with his family. On most weekends you'll find him exploring bike trails around the Bay Area.

Dr. Salaveria and his staff were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and they listened to me. I recently moved here from out of state and it looks like I've found my new dentist!

NO Pain! I am a HUGE baby when it comes to dental work and I am SO impressed. They made me feel comfortable and I am amazed that after a root canal, I had NO PAIN! Highly recommend their services. Their staff was wonderful from Rose at the front office to Brittany who assisted the procedure. Absolutely recommend!!!

My last experience at the dentist was as an uninsured individual about 6-8 years ago and I went to Western Dental. After almost 2 hours in their chair for 2 fillings and they had only gotten one of them done, I walked out of the office and never looked back. A few years went by and all of a sudden one of my molars caved in and I knew I had to get it taken care of. I now have insurance through my work and found Dr. Salaveria through their list of network providers. I saw all the positive reviews here on Yelp (and no negative ones...) and thought it was too good to be true but figured I would give them a shot. Best decision I ever made!

This is by far the best dentist experience I could have dreamed of. I had about 6 fillings done in less time than it took the Western Dental folks to do one. Not to mention he is very gentle and uses different techniques to make me comfortable since I have severe issues with my TMJ. I can almost fall asleep in his chair. They referred me out for two root canals (which have to be done by a specialist, and who they referred me to was also equally amazing) at this point and I have had one crown put in by them and will be having another crown done shortly. I can honestly say that I look forward to getting the work done with them. ....well... as much as anyone can look forward to dental work that is.

Bottom line: The reviews speak for themselves! Don't doubt it!
