Get to know Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Kelvin Tse, who serves patients in Rocklin, California.

Dr. Tse is committed to providing excellent dental care for adults and adolescents at Smile Island Pediatric and Adult Dental Group in Rocklin, California. From toddlers to the elderly, he and the skilled dental team working there are familiar with the unique needs of every patient, no matter their age. Their goal is to help develop great oral habits that will last them a lifetime.

Voted by his peers as one of the top cosmetic dentists in Sacramento in a survey by Sacramento Magazine, Dr. Tse treats every patient as if they are part of his own family and sincerely wants to make their dental experience positive and comfortable. He puts extra thought and consideration into the comfort that he provides at the office and during dental procedures. He also uses the finest laboratories to make custom crowns and other restorations for his patients. 

After earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco in 1989, Dr. Tse went on to receive his specialty training at UCLA’s Center for Esthetic Dentistry, where he served a mini-residency from 1993 to 1994. This training enabled him to give lectures on ceramic coloration, teaching dentists how to match a porcelain crown to the natural remaining dentition. For many years, he has discussed various aspects of cosmetic dentistry and how to help patients achieve individualized smile makeovers.

His professional accomplishments include membership in the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He also wrote a monthly column for the Sacramento District Dental Society’s magazine, The Nugget, entitled “The Esthetic Zone”.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Cosmetic dentists enhance patients’ smiles by correcting cracked, chipped, uneven, and discolored teeth. They use a variety of methods to improve patients’ smiles, including porcelain veneers, bridges, crowns, fillings, bonding, and whitening techniques.

If he is not at the office, Dr. Tse is with his family or lending a helping hand to others. He is also an avid bicycle rider, having participated in a 135-mile endurance event that involved climbing 15,500 feet from the lowest elevation in California at Death Valley to the highest point at Mount Whitney. Having a passion for cars, he can often be seen watching car races at Infineon or Laguna Seca raceways.
