Family Dental Staff
Robert Wick, DDS
Family Dentist in Hayward, CARobert Wick, DDS
My passion for dentistry began when I was a young boy of 12 years of age growing up in the Midwest. I had crooked teeth and my parents made the sacrifice to send me to an orthodontist to get my teeth straightened. At that time, teeth straightening was an exception rather than the rule. I visited the dentist almost every week for two years and became very interested in dental procedures and especially how dentistry can change an introverted personality like mine by improving the appearance of my smile. With the loving encouragement of my parents to pursue my dreams, I decided that the dental profession would be a very rewarding career choice. It was exciting to think that I too, could make a positive change in peoples lives by improving their smile.
I completed my undergraduate study at University of Missouri and then received my dental degree at Washington University, School of Dentistry in 1971. After graduation, I served two years practicing dentistry as a Captain in the U.S. Army stationed at Oakland Army Base. I then started my general dentistry practice in January 1974 and have been at the same Hayward location since the beginning of practice.
I love dentistry because it gives me an opportunity to interact daily with so many wonderful people. I am committed to make every dental visit pleasant for you and your family and to live up to the commitment that I cater to cowards. There is nothing more exciting to me than to see my patients, pain-free and smiling with confidence. I receive great satisfaction knowing that I can contribute even in a small way to make a positive difference in a person's life.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and spending time in the outdoors. I also enjoy playing golf, gardening, taking photographs, and most of all, spending time with my wife, Sherri, and my two daughters and grandchildren.
