Meet Dr. Pearce & His Team

Point Richmond dentist, Dr. Robert Pearce is one of the most skilled in the Point Richmond, Richmond, and San Pablo areas, and has taken care to assemble one of the finest dental teams to provide our patients with quality care in a relaxing and comforting environment.

Read through our biographies that we’ve provided below and get to know a little bit about Dr. Pearce and his professional team at Pearce & Associates.

Robert A. Pearce, DDS

Robert Pearce, DDSBorn in Allentown Pennsylvania, into a family of musicians, Rob Pearce grew up studying violin, percussion, jazz arranging and composition. After two years at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, he transfer to the pre-dental program at the University of Miami and later moved to San Francisco where he earned his Doctorate in Dentistry (DDS) from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in 1990. For the past twenty eight years he has focused his efforts on mastering the art of high quality, long lasting “metal free dentistry,” a concept that was relatively new at the time but over the years has gained powerful momentum.

In 2014 Dr. Pearce became a member of the “Visiting Faculty” of Spear Education, arguably the most prestigious dental continuing education program in the world.

As a Spear Open Wide Foundation Ambassador, Dr. Pearce and his team travel to Guatemala to provide metal free dentistry to those who would otherwise receive no dental treatment at all. Dr. Pearce and Annette Rig were honored, and lucky enough to treat the very first patient at the Foundation’s first clinic in 2012. Since then, with the outpouring of support from our member dentists and American equipment manufacturers, we now have six clinics and have treated over 200,000 patients in need! The foundation’s goals include helping improve the education of Guatemala dentists. In 2015, as a member of the Education Development Committee, Dr. Pearce presented an all day lecture and workshop for the faculty and students at the Galvez School of Dentistry in Guatemala City.

“Here at our facility we have always catered to the holistic community. We understand that patients are concerned about the materials that go into their mouth. We respect those concerns. Using entirely metal free techniques we have successfully saved tens of thousands of teeth, right here in Point Richmond.” — Rob Pearce, DDS
