Edward L. Loev, DMD

Dentist located in Union Square, San Francisco, CA

Dr. Edward Loev has been practicing the art of dentistry since 1969 and continues to provide the finest quality dental care to San Francisco residents. He attended Penn State University for his undergraduate degree and University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine where he earned his DMD (Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry). Dr. Loev graduated from Dental School during the Vietnam conflict and decided to serve his country as a dental officer in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corp. During his three years of service he was mostly based off the coast of Vietnam and in Okinawa. Dr. Loev visited California as a young man prior to entering dental school and loved it, often dreaming of returning. The military facilitated his dream and his final duty post was on Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay. While remaining in the Naval reserves he moved to San Francisco and established a thriving downtown practice in the 450 Sutter Medical Building in the Union Square/ Financial district.

Dr. Loev very much enjoyed caring for his patients and after 15 years of general practice was introduced to the enticing and advancing art of cosmetic dentistry. He quickly became obsessed with "smile design," and transforming patients smiles and in some cases their whole lives through cosmetic dentistry.  While still committed to maintaining his comprehensive dental practice he has focused and continues to focus a significant part of his time on staying at the forefront of dental technology and attends many continuing education courses to allow him to create and maintain beautiful smiles.

He and his team welcome your inquiries and visits to our skyscraper office overlooking San Francisco Bay and Union Square. Even after more than 42 years of caring for people, and their smiles, Dr. Loev embraces dentistry and the increasingly innovative dental techniques available. Dr. Loev's goal is to exceed his patients' expectations of care and service. In striving to obtain his goal Dr. Loev has brought together a great team of individuals who share his passion, and he has updated his office with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure his patients receive more options, more comfort, and more service.
