Announcement from Berkeley Prosthodontics (updated April 2, 2020): NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE
Dear Berkeley Prosthodontics Patients,
In light of the evolving pandemic and strong suggestions by public health officials, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our practice from March 16, 2020 to May 3, 2020. We do not make this decision lightly, however our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. If you have an appointment scheduled with us during those weeks, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment. In the case of emergency situations, we WILL have a dentist on call.
If you need emergency dental care, please call Dr. Au’s emergency dental line at 1-925-529-4704.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and the guidance from the county, state and the CDC. For now, we will determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours.
Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind. We thank you for your patience during this challenging time and wish all of you continued health.
Sincerely, Amy Au, Barbara Curtis, and the Berkeley Prosthodontics Dental Team

Dr. Au is the sweetest and most patient dentist!! I'm in the dental field so I'm very particular about my teeth and went on recommendation! I wanted a Prosthodontist (someone who goes to school for an extra few years to learn about implants and crowns) and am so grateful I found this office. Marilyn in the front knows me by name and is always the person I talk to on the phone- love the consistency!!! They are very accommodating and also love the parking lot because otherwise it can be a hassle to find a spot in this area. The first times I came they were out of network with my insurance (Marilyn helped me figure out submitting), with my new insurance they're in network. Been here for about two years so far :) ** shelia and Karen are also super sweet and nice to chat with even when getting a deep clean!
