Welcome to the practice! We are proud of our boutique dental establishment in one of the oldest Victorian buildings, surrounded by Redwoods, in the heart of downtown Mill Valley. With our cozy candles, chandeliers, fountain, classical music, aromas of soothing, anti-mircrobial essential oils… a unique spa-like Marin experience. All the while surrounded by top-notch, state of the art dental technology.

It has taken Dr. Yankie, hundreds of hours of study to incorporate the latest, and most conservative methods of sustaining her prime directive, which is taking care of her patients by healing and preserving. Dr. Yankie is on her third-generation cad cam lab, Cerec, to produce same-day, conservative crowns, onlays and veneers. She uses an iTero scanner for digital impressions for Invisalign, retainers, and night guards.

Since 2007, Dr. Yankie has been passionate about providing Invisalign to her patients. This has earned her an Invisalign Gold Plus designation. In addition, she is the President of a team of 38 AACA Dentists, and sits on the Board of the American Academy of Clear Aligners (AACA). Dr. Yankie just added the most advanced dental laser available, the Fotona LightWalkerTM, to her practice. It treats gum disease and can even remove decay without numbing. With her laser, she can desensitize teeth, relieve facial pain, help eliminate snoring, improve sleep apnea, naturally plump lips and stimulate collagen improving facial esthetics. The laser is extremely effective at treating sensitive teeth and facial pain.

This laser is a great addition to other services that she offers à la carte, such as: Bleaching, B-12, Botox for masseters and, (per your request!) more esthetic zones soon! Dr. Yankie focuses on individualized, advanced patient care in a relaxing environment. Her entire career she has focused on enhancing her patients’ health and wellness. Coupling genuine caring with state-of-the-art equipment and procedures, she continues to benefit everyone touched by her practice.
