Jay Golinveaux, DDS, MS

Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry

I’ve been practicing as a Pediatric Dentist since 2011 and I’m looking forward to serving San Francisco from my new practice.  I love making children and parents laugh, and I’m dedicated to making your child love going to the dentist!

I was born and raised in Sacramento, and migrated to the Bay Area to attend college at  UC, Berkeley (Go Bears!) I graduated with honors from the University of Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry here in San Francisco.  At the Dugoni school of Dentistry, I discovered I had a passion and talent for working with children. Following graduation, I underwent extensive training in Pediatric Dentistry at UC San Francisco, and have been in private practice since graduation.

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Pacific, and I’m active in my children’s school community.  I’m the proud father of two boys, Henry and Alex, and I’m married to my wife and fellow pediatric dentist, Megan.


What Our Patients Say

My kids have loved going to Dr. Jay for 5+ years now. He is so great with my kids and does a thorough job answering all of my questions. My son was a little anxious about getting his first x-rays and Dr. Jay was so patient and calming with him and as a result it ended up being no problem. Dr. Jay is an exceptional children’s dentist and I would highly recommend his office.

My two girls have gone to Dr. Jay for 5 years. My oldest is nervous by nature and Dr. Jay does a great job putting her at ease. Two years ago she knocked out her permanent front teeth in a pool. Dr. Jay got us into his office immediately, and did an amazing job calming her. He was able to gently conduct her through the procedure, talking her through each step of the process. To this day, I'm not sure which of the teeth are bonded, since they look so real. I am grateful to Dr. Jay for his attention to detail while recreating her beautiful smile. My kids and I are very happy with Dr. Jay.

Dr. Jay is beyond amazing!! Dr. Jay has the ability to inform parents of their child’s pediatric development and provide explanations, options, and next steps. He also makes the visit comfortable and fun for my kids. He makes balloon animals!!! He spends time teaching my kids about their teeth and gums! My kids have taken pride in their own dental care because of the influence of Dr. Jay. We are so lucky to have found him. We plan on making the trip to San Francisco from the East Bay to continue his excellent care.

Dr. Jay and his staff are amazing! My 2.5 year old loves going there despite meeting Dr. Jay under a traumatic circumstance (knocked her tooth in an accident, so we have been to the dentist a lot). He is great with kids and spends just the right amount of time entertaining and talking to them before the dentistry begins. My daughter trusts him so that when he tells her what she needs to do to take care of her teeth, she actually does it at home.

I took my almost-2 year old and my 4 year old to Dr. Jay for their teeth cleaning. He gave me helpful recommendations on how to better care for their teeth and is really great with the kids too!

Dr. Jay is the BEST! My kids LOVE him!

My 3 year old takes longer than usual to warm to a new place (specially at the doctor’s). As soon as we opened the door, he felt right at home. We have visited a different dentist before, but they couldn’t even get for him to open his mouth.

Dr. J was awesome, he was able to do a complete check up and clean his teeth!

I was quite impressed!

Highly recommend him and his staff.

If you want your child to feel at ease and smile after their dental appointment then you NEED to visit Dr. Jay at Golinveaux Pediatric Dentistry. Both my kids have been seeing him since they had teeth. He is the best and my kids love him!!! He is great with kids and adults and you will always get the best service and care. And, if you are lucky you will get a juggling performance on your way out with a personalized balloon animal or hat! Just look for the orange smiling crab 🦀 on the front door.
