Robert M. Walley, DDS - General and Cosmetic Dentist in San Francisco, CA

Meet Dr. Robert Walley

Dr. Robert Walley

Dentistry changes people’s lives, and for the past 40 years, I have enjoyed making such a positive difference in the San Francisco community. With the help of Invisalign, I am able to practice the kind of dentistry I’ve always dreamed of. I take pride in giving my patients healthy mouths, and I truly enjoy making their smiles as beautiful as possible.

Education and Continuing Education

I love practicing dentistry because I learn something new every day. From using new tools, to learning new procedures, I strive to stay on the cutting edge of my field. I attended Loyola University School of Dentistry in Chicago where I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. I now continue my education by regularly attending classes: with the advancements made in dental technology, we all need to keep up. While I am required to take 50 hours of continuing education every year, I regularly complete more than 200 hours. I have training in endodontics (root canals), pharmacology, Invisalign, dental implants, occlusion (bite analysis and treatment), cosmetic dentistry, sleep apnea, and practice management. My patients benefit by learning from our dental team, and knowing that they’re receiving the best care available.

Outside the Office

I was born and raised in San Francisco, and I am proud to practice in the community in which I grew up. I am married to my wife, Wendy, and we have two children, Chris and Ashley, and a wonderful grandson, Truen. I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially rollerblading, bike riding, and open water rowing. I have also recently taken up stand-up paddle boarding.

I love working in the dental field, not only because I have been able to work with my husband for 35 years, but because I love seeing our patients so happy with their dental experiences. I interact with our patients in person and on the phone, and I always have a big smile on my face. There is never a dull moment in our office. Dr. Walley and our team want people to leave the office having had a great time. Dr. Walley and I have been married for 25 years; we have two children and one wonderful grandson. I enjoy biking, dancing, and rollerblading with my husband.

The first thing our patients notice are smiles everywhere! Dr. Walley and our staff work efficiently to make sure our patients get the best care, but we know how to have a great time, too. I love our office functions, and we consistently attend continuing education courses as a team to stay knowledgeable and up to date with new dental technologies. We’ve created a trusting environment where all patients can feel comfortable and know they’re receiving excellent dental care; I have been here for over 8 years, and it has been a joy to see so many patients transform their smiles with Dr. Walley. I am happily married to my wonderful husband and we have two sons together. I enjoy shopping in my free time and going fishing with my family.
