Welcome to Berkeley Prosthodontics and General Dentistry, where we are proud to serve the communities of Berkeley, Alameda County, Walnut Creek, and the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.
Dr. Amy Au, Dr. Barbara Curtis, and our entire team are committed to providing ethical oral health care in a caring, supportive environment.
Prosthodontics is one of eight recognized dental specialties. In addition to a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS), Dr. Amy Au completed a three-year prosthodontic residency at University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry.
Her expertise and training in implant dentistry, use of conventional and ceramic crowns, porcelain veneers, and partial and complete dentures give her the background necessary to provide our patients with exceptional comprehensive care.
Dr. Au recently acquired Berkeley Prosthodontics from Dr. Don Curtis, who has been a part of the practice since 1987. While Dr. Curtis will be curtailing his schedule, he will still be acting as a prosthodontic consultant for the practice.
We want every detail of your visit with us to be pleasant and worry-free. Our experienced team values long-term relationships with our patients because we can provide the most appropriate care when we understand what is important to you.
When we are treating you, our complete focus is on your comfort and your needs. Dr. Au and Dr. Curtis seek to create a collaborative environment where your concerns are heard and you are an active participant in your oral health care.
We work hard to ensure that your surroundings are warm and welcoming. Our office is located in a charming brick building on Durant Avenue and is staffed with friendly professionals whose priority is to put your dental needs first. We work hard to earn your trust by providing consistent, high-quality treatments that improve your oral health and your smile.
Our team would love to welcome you and show you how uncomplicated excellent oral health care can be. We are open five days a week from 8 to 5 for your scheduling convenience.
While Dr. Au is out of network for all insurances, we are still able to accept and bill your insurance. Dr. Barbara Curtis is a preferred provider for MetLife. We will be happy to file your claims on your behalf. We also accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards.
We hope that you spend a few moments browsing around some of the valuable information on this website. When you are ready, give us a call to arrange an appointment so you can visit with us and learn more about our practice.
We look forward to welcoming you to Berkeley Prosthodontics and General Dentistry!
Important information regarding COVID-19 Safety
Welcome back! Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we are ONLY open because we have carefully planned and revised our office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members.
Our team closely follows guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, ADA, and Berkeley City in regards to existing and new personal protective equipment (PPE), updated engineering, modified administrative protocols, and extra safety practice protocols. You can expect to see some changes for your next appointment, such as pre-appointment respiratory screening, daily temperature-taking, social distanced office area, more air purification and ventilation in each operatory, staggered and lengthened appointments, and more physical barriers installed to keep the office a safe environment for everyone.
We ask that everyone 12 and older must have face cover on when you arrive at our office, and to help social distance, we may ask you and your family, companion, to wait in your car during any wait.
Thank you for your cooperation! We look forward to seeing you soon!
Amy Au and the Berkeley Prosthodontics Dental Team
