Larry Porteous, DDS is a Bay Area native raised in Berkeley, CA. He received his B.S. degree in biology from the University of California Berkeley, and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland, OH.

Upon returning to the Bay Area, he obtained his California dental license and completed his general practice residency at Olive View Medical Center in Van Nuys, CA with an emphasis in oral surgery. His experience during his residency included visits to outlying clinics, providing general dental care and emergency care to the underprivileged in the greater Los Angeles area.

He met his wife, Linda, while she was earning her dental hygiene degree at Chabot College in Hayward, CA. For two years, they practiced in separate group offices while exploring the opportunities to open their own private practice.

Larry Porteous Family Dentistry now has three successful private practice locations in the San Francisco East Bay Area. Their first office was established in Rodeo, subsequently opening a second office in Vallejo, and a third office in Danville. Larry, Linda, and Lance are dedicated to the profession of dentistry, while enjoying busy and fulfilling professional and personal lives.

Their daughter, Lea, attends nursing school, and is also an integral and invaluable member of Larry Porteous Family Dentistry, providing comprehensive assistance in all aspects of the dental practice, and helping you feel welcome, comfortable, and at ease during your visit.
