A specialist in complex, aesthetically-crafted prosthetic work (implants, dentures, crowns and bridges), Dr. Rebecca Boardman is equipped to deal not only with general dental concerns, but with esthetics of one’s smile that can affect quality of life, and tooth pain and tooth loss that can lead to more serious problems, such as a compromised ability to eat.

After she got her bachelors degree in Fine Art from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1986, Rebecca began designing, fabricating and selling jewelry to boutiques and museums internationally. One day a UOP bumper sticker caught her eye and reminded her of her childhood dream of being a dentist, and that was that. She went back to school, and in 1997 received her dental degree from the University of California, San Francisco. Another three years of prosthodontic training at UCSF and Rebecca was ready to start making jewelry for people’s mouths.

Dr. Boardman is a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, the San Francisco Dental Society, the American College of Prosthodontists, and is vice president of the Pacific Coast Society for Prosthodontics. She regularly attends continuing dental education courses and is a full clinical professor at the UCSF School of Dentistry. Her office is located in lower Pacific Heights in San Francisco.
