Great staff!!!


Dr. Elder handled my case with the best of professional service anyone could ask for from the 1st meeting to the procedure and then the follow-up appointments. At first I was really scared to do the procedure, but Dr. Elder instilled a confidence in me that I don’t normally have when I sit in a dental office. He did an awesome job with the bone graft and my dental implant. It didn’t even feel like he did the procedure because it was done with a “clean” well done finish. I would highly recommend Dr. Elder for all your dental care needs!

Very friendly and knowledgeable. We are very happy with the service we received


Very knowledgeable staff and oral surgeons.


My surgery / tooth removal was taken care of quickly and with a minimum of discomfort. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Elder to anyone needing an extraction.


I elected to be put to sleep for a difficult extraction. I felt a pinch from an IV and the next thing I heard was, “Wake up, you’re done.” No pain or trauma. It was the most pleasant oral surgery I’ve ever had. I was treated very well and recovering rapidly. My highest recommendation.


My experience at your office was easier than I ever thought it would be. Everyone is so professional. I will recommend your office whenever I can. Thank you for the pleasant experience.


Wonderful! Quick and so professional. Highly recommend!


The staff was supportive of me when I was in fear and pain. I want to apologize to those people in the office who helped me. I was not easy to deal with. Thank you!


I  have been anxious about the need to have a complex extraction since I have osteoporosis and take Prolia injections every six months. I was actually forwarded from the Native American Dental Health Clinic to Skyway Endontics and then back to a different Native American Clinic doctor before getting a strong recommendation to see an oral surgeon. I selected Dr. Elder because his office is near where I am spending 6 weeks in Novato during winter storms in the mountains where I live. Once I arrived at Dr. Elder’s office, everything was suddenly manageable. All staff members were excellent and Dr. Elder was experienced and confident about taking my case. His office was also able to schedule an appointment for the surgery in the week following my consultation. I have complete confidence in this medical team


No one “wants” to go to the dentist, let alone a dentist of oral surgery. But teeth degrade over time, can crack and might need to be removed. Mr. Elder and his staff were awesome throughout my exams, tooth extraction, and dental implant procedure. I would recommend Mr. Elder to my friends and family.


The office is small but cute and the doctor was very nice and made sure to answer all our questions.
