WELCOME TO Santa Rosa Dentistry And Implant Center, We Preserve And Rebuild Smiles With World-Class Dentistry
Santa Rosa Dentistry and Implant Center is privileged to provide world-class dental care to individuals from throughout our corner of northwestern California and greater Sonoma County. Led by veteran Rohnert Park dentist Dr. Wayne Sutton, our team provides both comprehensive “bread and butter” dentistry and exceptional advanced dental care that you can’t find elsewhere. Patients trust that the health, safety, and appearance of their smiles are in great hands, regardless of if they seek complex full mouth reconstructive dentistry or more “routine” services to keep dental decay, gum disease, and other conditions at bay.
Protect and prevent
“General” dental services are fundamental to preserving natural teeth and oral tissues. These services include regular professional cleanings, comprehensive oral exams, and screenings for oral and pharyngeal pre-cancers and cancerous lesions. What Dr. Sutton cannot detect with his keen eye and considerable know-how, he can pinpoint using sophisticated diagnostics. Imaging such as 3-D digital x-rays supports the early, accurate diagnoses that inform effective and prompt treatment and resolution of symptoms such as toothaches and swelling. Additionally, many preventative services, such as fluoride supplementation, can be integrated easily into regular dental visits.
Our approach to reconstructive dentistry shines! Dr. Sutton has substantive training and experience in successfully placing dental implants in the jaw. Once the implant is healed and joined to the surrounding bone, our prosthodontist, Dr. Ryan Sabo, provides the “finishing touch.” He places the dental restoration or the part of the replacement tooth visible when you smile. Since the tooth is literally “rooted” in the jawbone by the implant, patients get the ultimate stability and comfort from their implant-supported restorations. A single implant may be used to retain one replacement tooth or crown, while as few as four implants may be strategically positioned by Dr. Sutton to support an entire upper or lower denture.
Additional restorative options available at Santa Rosa Dentistry and Implant Center include:
- Natural and highly aesthetic neuromuscular Fountain of Youth® dentures
- Oral appliance therapy to conservatively resolve conditions such as sleep-disordered breathing (sleep apnea) and temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJDs)
- Quality restorations to rebuild portions of a damaged or decayed tooth (from metal-free composite fillings to porcelain crowns)
- Implant alternatives for every smile, such as fixed dental bridges
Makeover your smile
Our team also stands apart from other practices in and around Santa Rosa, California, with world-class cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic imperfections such as gaps between teeth and chipped teeth can be resolved with porcelain veneers or composite bonding. For a quick, safe, affordable, and dramatic smile transformation, ask about our use of professional deep bleaching treatments to remove even intrinsic or severe stains and discoloration. We also offer discreet orthodontic treatment with Invisalign®. Instead of silver-hued, fixed metal braces, we can effectively straighten teeth and correct bite problems with removable, transparent clear aligners.
If it’s been a while since your last dental visit, we offer many techniques to get you reacquainted with modern, gentle, fear- and judgment-free dentistry, including the use of relaxing sedation. Our approach to dental anxiety is to make your treatment process as pain-free and calming as possible. Dr. Sutton is a licensed sedation dentist with 23 years of sedation experience in Santa Rosa. He provides levels of sedation dentistry that are best suited for your situation—ranging from light nitrous oxide to deeper relaxation with oral conscious sedation for moderate anxiety and for the more extensive restorations we provide general anesthesia. We cover all levels of your dental fear.
With a world of preventative, general, cosmetic, and reconstructive capabilities, our office is sure to have an option to keep or get you smiling comfortably and confidently again. We look forward to meeting you. Call (707) 868-0677 to schedule an appointment, or, for your convenience, you may request an appointment at the “schedule” button on this website.

My name is Jennifer Tarantino. So about a year and a half ago, I came in to visit Dr. Sutton and he told me that I need to have all my teeth removed, a condition that I had. So in September, I had all of my teeth removed and then I had some implants put in, and just recently I had almost permanent—these are my actually almost permanent teeth—put in and they’re great because I’ve been able to chew things that I haven’t been able to do for a really long time. The other day, I actually called my husband because I was able to bite into an apple for the very first time, so it was awesome. It sounds silly, but I haven’t been able to do that in a really long time, so it was pretty cool.
Before I had—my son is almost 10—and before I had him, even when I was pregnant, my gums bled a lot. And then I also lost some teeth while I was pregnant and some people just said it happens, you know, your body goes through things when you’re pregnant and it would just happen. And then after I had him, I actually lost a couple more teeth and my teeth, many of them are loose. And so I wasn’t even able to eat a lot of things before even with my regular—with my other teeth. And then slowly they just got worse, my gums got worse. Every time I brushed my teeth, my gums would bleed. Most of my teeth as Dr. Sutton knows were loose so I couldn’t really chew a lot of really anything, and like I said, I came in to Dr. Sutton about a year and a half ago, and that’s when he told me I need to have them all removed.
I think a lot of people when they don’t have problems with their teeth, they don’t understand how it affects your life and everything in your life that you do, and it’s been amazing and life changing for me, this whole process, and I’m very grateful.
And I feel healthier. I do. I feel healthier. I would recommend Dr. Wayne Sutton and his whole staff. They’ve been, it’s been life-changing for me. I’ve been just not confident in my smile for a very long time and I can actually smile, even on Facebook or when I take pictures everybody noticed that I’m smiling now and I haven’t done that in a really long time. So I’m very grateful. I’m very appreciative.
Casey: My name is Casey Williams. I met Dr. Sutton through Rotary. He was a former president of the Rotary Club of Rohner Park, former president of Santa Rosa West. And I’ve never enjoyed going to the dentist, and Wayne’s a great guy. And so, I thought, maybe this’ll work. Maybe I can finally get the care I need. Dr. Sutton changed my life when I was like nine years old. I broke my two front teeth skateboarding, and I spent my entire life smiling like this or covering my mouth when I laughed because it looked horrible. I had these little caps and they never matched. It never looked right. I got a crown one time, and that sort of helped a little bit, but it looked terrible. And now, I mean, when you’re a kid and you pose for pictures and you smile like this, and the photographer’s going, come on, give me a big smile. And then you smile. And the photographer goes, Oh, okay, nevermind. So, this totally changed my life. I mean, now I can smile, and I’m a comedian too, so if you don’t smile when you tell jokes on stage, people just think you’re a jerk. So now I can tell jokes for free at a bowling alley on Tuesdays. It’s great. My whole family goes to Dr. Sutton. I refer people all the time, anytime anybody talks about any kind of dental care they need. Absolutely. The first thing I say is go to Sonoma Smiles.
Yeah, my name is Les Wasco. I’m a retired chief of police. I’ve been in Roanoke Park for 31 years and everybody has apprehensions about dentistry and going to the dentist has never been my favorite thing, but I have to say with Dr. Sutton, my friend Wayne – Excellent, excellent. Makes me feel very comfortable. One of the problems that I had, a major problem with dentistry, had to be put under a couple times, which is never a comfortable thing because Wayne is an easygoing manner, very humorous and makes you feel calm, greatly relaxed me in that and I appreciated that very much. One of my problems medically, I’m diabetic, which is a great concern for having your teeth and your gums in excellent condition. And also, I have sleep apnea and being put under sedation with sleep apnea takes a person with some real skills and I thank Dr. Sutton for that. Extremely important for people, and there’s a lot of people in my age group that have that problem and may or may not even know it. I’ve had a lot of dentists in my past and absolutely none of them. They were all decent, but Wayne is superior to them. I would certainly recommend him to anyone.
