Meet Your Brentwood Dentist
Robert J. Freitas II, DDS, PC, MAGD
Dr. Freitas is thrilled to be practicing dentistry in his hometown. He was not only born and raised in Brentwood, but he is also a sixth-generation resident of our town. After graduating from Liberty High School, Dr. Freitas completed his Bachelor of Science in biological sciences at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. Then, after graduating from Pacific, he attended the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, where he spent the next four years mastering his craft and rooting for the Trojans at every home football game.
Since attaining his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, Dr. Freitas settled down once again in Brentwood with his wife, Shelley, and their dog, Barkley. His son Jack was added to the mix a few years later and always keeps things entertaining. Dr. Freitas has completed a few marathons, and when he has time he likes to get out on a trail and move his feet. He can often be found out on a bike ride with his family or on a jog with his dog. Dr. Freitas is excited to be working in a state-of-the-art office in downtown Brentwood where he can provide quality, conservative, and patient-centered dental care in a comfortable environment.
Dr. Freitas maintains active memberships in many excellent dental organizations, including:
- The Contra Costa Dental Society
- The California Dental Association
- The American Dental Association
- The Academy of General Dentistry, serving on the board of both the local and state components
- The California Academy of General Dentistry
Furthermore, Dr. Freitas spends time throughout the year discussing new trends in patient care with colleagues as a member of the Delta Study Club and Spear Study Club. He also completed a fellowship with the Pierre Fauchard Academy. Dr. Feitas spends as much time as possible attending continuing education courses in order to keep up to date on all the newest techniques to help provide comprehensive dental care in a comfortable environment.
I’m a MAGD dentist! What does that mean for you and your family?
MAGD stands for Master of the Academy of General Dentistry. Earning Mastership takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Less than 2 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Masters. Dr. Freitas also has the distinct honor of serving on the state board and national committees with the AGD.
When you see a dentist with MAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Masters practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times per year—not every dentist does this.
To become an AGD Master, a dentist must:
- Complete over 1,100 credit hours of CE.
- Earn 400 of those 1,100 credits in hands-on courses.
- Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.
