Meet The Doctor

Tim Griffin, DDS

Dr. Griffin was born and raised in Watsonville, California.  He graduated from Watsonville High School in 1971 and in 1975 he graduated with honors from the University of the Pacific.  He graduated from Georgetown Dental School in 1979.  

Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional patient care.  As a dental professional, I stay up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options for my patients. Over the years of practicing dentistry, I have taken hundreds of hours of continuing education courses.  This education helps me provide the best and newest techniques to serve our patients.  As a doctor, I recognize that my patients are unique individuals who have placed a great deal of trust in myself and my team. That is just one of many reasons why I value each and every patient relationship.

On a local level, I am an adviser for the Cabrillo College Dental Hygiene Committee which allows me to provide input on the current educational and professional commitment needed to produce outstanding hygienists.  I also participate in Watsonville High School's Health Academy mentoring high school students to become interested in the field of dentistry.  As part of a community outreach through the local dental society, I visit schools to educate children on oral health.  

We appreciate the time you’ve taken to visit our website and find out more about our dental practice, our dental team, and the many services we can provide to help you achieve optimum oral health.
