Welcome to our Office

Meet Dr. Grote
Dr. Grote (pronounced grow-tee) has a long and loyal history with the Davis Community. He graduated from Davis High School in 1981 and attended UC Davis before going to Boston University for dental school and a post-doctoral residency. Dentistry has been a life-long passion. He still remembers the first time he saw a cavity removed and the tooth restored with a filling — he knew he had discovered his destiny. Today, Dr. Grote enjoys having the opportunity to provide the absolute highest standard of dental care available.

Dr. Grote has attained clinical excellence by continuing his education every year since dental school. He averages more than 50 hours of continuing education per year, double the state requirement for licensure. He has attended the Pankey Institute for Dental Education and is a 12-year member of the Northern California Dental Forum, a Seattle Study Club affiliate. The entire team is dedicated to providing the latest proven preventive techniques and learning effective ways to inspire patients to make healthy choices.

Our practice was established in 1971 by Dr John Legakis. He retired in 2004 and handed the reins to Dr. Grote with utmost trust. Dr. Legakis continues to be active in Davis and was adamant about his successor being integrated into Davis' tightly knit community. Among other things, Dr. Grote served for 10 years as a coach in Davis Little League, has been the team photographer for baseball, basketball, and football teams, and continues to be an avid supporter of high school sports programs. He enjoys being part of a community that cares so much about quality of life. With over 40 years of continuous service to our neighbors, we look forward to being your local connection to excellent dental and oral health.

We offer a personal approach and a positive attitude that aims to foster good health in a comfortable and supportive environment. In the past, many patients would feel shame and guilt when visiting the dentist if they "didn't floss as much ash they should have" or developed a cavity that needed a filling. We aim to change that way of treating people by bridging the gap between what we know about the science of prevention and the many misconceptions patients still harbor about their teeth. For example, most patients aren't aware that cavities are a transmissible disease (second most common in the world to the common cold) and that brushing before you eat is actually the most effective way to prevent cavities and gum disease. I learned these things in my first year of dental school in 1992 an am still puzzled that this isn't common knowledge by now. We fervently believe that we can help anyone decide how and what they want to do to have the healthy mouth they deserve. If you want to discover the secrets to having healthy teeth and an attractive smile, you've found the right place.

We promise:
1.  To do our best to treat everyone with genuine compassion, care and consideration.
2.  To explain in understandable terms the health of your mouth and how to attain a lifetime of optimal oral health.
