San Francisco patients that live or work in the financial district are often incredibly busy with career, hobbies, friends, and family.

Our patients love how compassionate and gentle Dr. Skoulas is during their treatment. They also enjoy her office’s convenient location in the heart of the financial district.
But on top all of that, there are some additional benefits to choosing a female dentist. Several academic studies have explored the differences between male and female dentists. The results are fascinating and show that having a female dentist holds several key benefits for patients.
Why Work with a Female Dentist
San Francisco patients that visit a female dentist receive some fascinating benefits. Here are a few of them.
- Prevention – A recent study found that female dentists were more likely to recommend prevention strategies earlier in the treatment process. These recommendations include fluoride treatments at home. These treatments, the study found, saved patients money in the long run.
- A conservative approach – Female dentists tend to prefer a more conservative approach to their dentistry which leads to less cost for patients. Female dentists also have smaller hands that allow them to have better access to all areas of the mouth.
- Anxious patients – Many patients experience a great deal of anxiety about going to the dentist. Research has shown that female dentists may be better at listening to their patients. This could help patients feel more secure and comfortable during their treatment.
- Pediatric dentistry – There is one final difference between a male and female dentist. San Francisco parents should know that female dentist are more likely to recommend that young patients use fluoride treatments at home. This sort of preventative treatment in the comfort of the home can also have huge benefits for parents and patients.
