Jay Uemura, DDS – Dr. Jay, as his patients and staff affectionately refer to him, worked as an analytical chemist for six years before realizing that dentistry was his true calling.  He found that periodontics allowed him to combine his love of science with his surgical talent and his natural enjoyment of people.  Dr. Jay earned his DDS degree at New York University and completed his specialized periodontal training at University of California San Francisco.  Dedicated to providing state-of-the-art periodontal services in a caring and comfortable manner, Dr. Jay has extensive training in dental alveolar surgery, dental implants, and I.V. conscious sedation.  He is licensed by the Institute of Advanced Laser Dentistry to perform Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure also known as “LANAP” and has been awarded Board Certification by the American Academy of Periodontology.

Dr. Jay met his wife Kathy while they were both attending Cal Poly.  They enjoyed traveling in the US and Europe, but fell in love with Sonoma County while visiting the area on camping trips up the coast.  Settling here in 2002, Dr. Jay and Kathy have three young children and enjoy family activities.  Dr. Jay’s interests include baseball and films (he’s always ready for a pop culture quiz!) but music is his favorite pastime. He has a varied collection of musical instruments, and his children join him in playing their favorites in many impromptu family jam sessions.
