Meet the Doctor

dr seyfried

Dr. Seyfried graduated from USC School of Dentistry in 1984 with a dual license to practice in the states of California and Nevada. He then settled in Encinitas, California where he built his general dentistry practice over the period of the next 22 years. During that time, he attended numerous advanced education programs including the Las Vegas Institute for Cosmetic Dentistry.

In addition to a comprehensive list of "nuts and bolts" dental services, Dr. Seyfried’s office offers Invisalign, implants, orthodontics, dentures, teeth whitening, sports retainers, snore guards, and periodontal disease treatments.

Dr. Seyfried also offers many services to enhance your smile. These include porcelain veneers and beautiful all-porcelain crowns (no metal to hide). Dr. Seyfried makes most of his crowns in-office. He is proud of the quality and workmanship of the beautiful smiles he creates. The team continually stays abreast of the latest advances in techniques and materials available to the patient. There are also a variety of anaesthetic options to ensure optimum comfort for our patients during the procedures.

For many years, Dr. Seyfried has been an active member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, San Diego Dental Society, American Academy of Sleep Dentistry, Clinical Research Associates, the Dental Board of Ethics, Northern Nevada Dental Society and the Nevada Dental Association. He is very proud to have been voted 2015’s "Best Dentist in Carson Valley". He will strive to continue providing the most beautiful smiles in the valley.

In 2006, Dr. Seyfried decided to make a lifestyle change and moved to the great state of Nevada where he is now practicing in Minden. He enjoys fly-fishing, skiing, playing the drums, hiking, and backpacking.
