A 1974 graduate of the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center, Dr. Grablin finished in the top 15% of his class. He spent 3 years in the TMJ Clinic at UCSF and 1 year as an oral surgeon at San Francisco General Hospital. He later became a Gnathologist, a dentist who specializes in the biological mechanisms of mastication (chewing), speech, deglutition (swallowing) and facial expression. Dr. Grablin’s ongoing post-graduate education has enabled him to incorporate the latest technologies into his practice, including microscopic dentistry and comfortable injections. He has spent over 3700 hours in continuing education since graduating from UCSF Medical Center.
In 1977, Dr. Grablin established his San Rafael, California, practice on the basic principle of providing the highest quality of dentistry in a caring environment. He has a substantial base of patients who have been with him for many years. Ninety-five percent of new patients who visit his office return to establish long-term relationships.
Dr. Grablin is married to Suki and has two children, Richard and Gihea. He was previously an active student of Tae Kwon-Do, a Korean martial art, and carries the Second Dan Black Belt of this discipline.
