Staff S.
Established in 1987.


This practice was first established in the 1960's, when Santa Clara had more orchards than computers. I began practicing general, prevention oriented dentistry after graduating from University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 1985 and purchased this practice in 1987 when the previous dentist retired.
Implant dentistry began to be important in the 1990's and I began helping my patients replace missing teeth with implants as well as doing bonding, bleaching and other cosmetic enhancements.
In 2004, we went completely digital: one of the first paperless dental offices in the area. Now we are continuing to stay ahead with technology with digital impressioning and laser gum treatments.
Recently, we joined UCSF in a 2 year study showing how your cavity risk can be  reduced with special mouthwashes and toothpastes. I love being involved with research aimed towards helping people take control to be healthier.

Dr. Catherine Steinborn is simply an excellent dentist, honest and sincere. I love the teamwork in this office. The staff is super friendly and professional.  The office doesn't feel like a medical office, it's small, personal and truly a relaxing atmosphere.  You feel the comfort as soon as you walk through the door!...Read more

Dr. Steinborn is an extremely helpful dentist who focuses on prevention and being proactive. She has been my dentist for over ten years and I have always found her willing to take the time to help me understand what dental issues I am facing, what my options are, and how I can guard against the problems in the future. I am particularly anxious about invasive procedures and she has helped me create a plan to deal with my gum problems only using surgery as a last result....Read more

When I moved to Santa Clara I needed a new dentist, so I asked around at work, and it turns out most of my department goes to Dr. Steinborn and has for the past 20 years! After my first visit, I could see why. Her office runs on time, it's super clean and friendly, I was offered numbing gel for my sensitive gums during my cleaning, I had my gums rated for the first time ever (so now I can easily track my progress from visit to visit), she clearly broke down the costs for what she recommended (what I'd pay vs. what my insurance covers), and she and her staff are just genuinely caring!...Read more

Dr. S. has utter diffidence towards her patients, with a lot of arrogance to boot. And this after you have been kept waiting to see her for at least one hour, at least every time I, my partner, or her children went....Read more

By Ash T. on January 25, 2015 6:00 PM
This dentist violated HIPAA by storing patient records in unencrypted electronic files.  The server was stolen so patients now have to live with the knowledge that their health histories, social security numbers & insurance information is out there for identity thieves to possibly commit fraud.  She didn't offer to pay for any credit protections despite VIOLATING PROTECTIONS REQUIRED BY HIPAA.  I didn't think the dental services were superb but definitely not worth being subject to a data breach....Read more

Went for a crown, having taken the day off work.  Dentist got cross with me for not having my tooth pulled by a specialist when she hadn't  instructed me to. Ending up pulling tooth herself.   Gave me no instructions for care when I left.  (I was too out of it to ask.)  When I called, the receptionist told me should would talk to the Dentist and call me back.  When I didn't hear back, I called and asked if the receptionist had consulted the dentist.  She said, "About What?'...Read more

Dr. Steinborn was really helpful and does amazing work. She's thoughtful in explaining procedures and ways to care for my teeth. I'm glad she suggested what I could do to like my smile more. I'm very happy with my teeth!...Read more

Dr. Steinborn took over my father-in-law's dental practice in the 80's.  He was known worldwide for his work and he hand-selected Dr. Steinborn after interviewing literally dozens of the most qualified young dentists graduating from the best dental schools in the country....Read more
