Dr. Steve attended the University of California, Davis, where he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry. He then chose the School of Dentistry at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) where he graduated with honors in 1993.
Steve continued his pursuit of excellence and higher education by participating in a one year residency at the UCSF Advanced Education in General Dentistry program, a privilege granted to only three UCSF graduates annually.
Dr. Steve lectured on CEREC technology to students and faculty at the University of California, San Francisco School of Dentistry for almost a decade.
And thanks in part to his enthusiasm and commitment, CEREC technology is now part of the UCSF Dental School curriculum. The Doctor is dedicated to advancing his knowledge, skills, and technology for the benefit of his patients.
Since 2007, Dr. Kolokithas and his wife Niki have been teaching Kindergarteners and 1st Graders about good oral hygiene through fun skits as the Dynamic Dental Super Heroes: Molar Man and Molar Maid: Defenders of Dentin and Destroyer of Decay!
In addition, Dr. Steve volunteers his time and expertise at Samaritan House in the dental clinic, supporting their mission of "neighbor helping neighbor" in our local community.
Serioulsly. Dr. Steve may be the best dentist in the peninsula. In additional to doing great family dentistry, he is truly an artist when it comes to cosmetic restructuring.
Absolutely the BEST! I recently had two implants made at Dr. Kolokithas' office and while there, he fixed so many other problems, all on the same appointment, that I came away with my smile returned. He is the most gentle dentist and his manner is so kind and caring that all tension from being in the chair just disappears. His staff is friendly and welcoming, as is his office. At 65, I've had lot of dental work over the years, and Dr. Steven is the best ever.
Dr Steve is one of the best dentists that I have ever been to. His office is clean and his staff professional. But the very best thing about him is his conservative approach to dentistry.
I have an extreme fear of the dentist's office. My boyfriend recommended Dr. Kolokithas and has been going to him for years. I have to agree that the staff at this office is the nicest I've ever met and really helps me relax.
I have been to many dentists through out my life time, but now that I have found Dr. Steve Kolokithas I won't have to be searching any more. He is the best. He is personable, likable and most important knowledgeable and knows what he is doing. He does every thing with care and gentleness. He works seamlessly with his staff to provide excellent dental care. He treats me and my family like his family. We all seem to like going to the dentist. And, that is saying something.
