Meet Dr. Sanfilippo
Dr. Sanfilippo is a very beloved character around our office, and he’s actually the original founder of Endodontic Associates Saratoga.
Dr. Sanfilippo received his dental degree from the University of Pacific, San Francisco, and he went on to complete his specialty training in endodontics at the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA. He deservedly retired from full-time practice in 2013, but he continues to volunteer at many local clinics.
When not helping patients, Dr. Sanfilippo enjoys learning Italian and fishing. He also travels to Africa to teach endodontics a few times a year. Over the years, he has earned a tremendous amount of respect from both our referring doctors and his peers, so we’re extremely happy that he chooses to continue working at our practice.
