My name is Dr. Philip Wolff, and I have been a practicing dentist in Marina since 1990. As a general dentist, my early years were focused on providing patients with dental treatment that would look good, feel good, and last a long time. While that will always be my ultimate goal with dental treatment, there has been an evolution that allows me to focus not only on oral health but also on how I can improve overall systemic health. My many years of continuing education have had an emphasis on whole-body health, including headaches, facial pain, diabetes, TMD, and sleep-breathing disorders. While my dental team and I can create your beautiful smile, we would also like to improve your quality of life and longevity so that you can enjoy that smile for many years to come.
I have lived in Monterey county since the age of 8, growing up in Toro Park, graduating from Robert Louis Stevenson high school, and then leaving the central coast to attend college. After graduating from UC Berkeley dental school followed at UCLA and culminated in a DDS degree in 1990. Returning to the central coast, I had the privilege of practicing with my father for 5 years in Marina and have been there ever since. My passion for continual education in order to provide the best care possible for my patients led to many courses, including Spear Education, Invisalign, BioResearch, and Myotronics, as well as mini-residencies, including UCLA’s Dental Sleep Medicine and the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain’s mini-residency to name a few. My passion to learn also translated into teaching, which led me to become a Supervising Dentist in the Cabrillo College Dental Hygiene program in 2018.
When not in the office, you may find me sailing on the bay, climbing up or skiing down a mountain, biking, wine-tasting, traveling, or just out enjoying a meal at some of the tasty restaurants in northern California.

I am a Canadian dentist who graduated in Dentistry at the University of Montreal in 2014 after completing a bachelor's degree at McGill University. Then I decided to pursue a 1-year residency program in San Jose, CA. I made California my home and moved to the beautiful Central Coast, where I've been practicing dentistry ever since. I have completed many continuing education courses and am the first ever GP in the Central Coast to achieve certified Platinum Provider status with Invisalign. I am also hired as a speaker for Align to help other dentists deliver beautiful results through Invisalign clear aligners. I have also completed many Implant certifications to provide my patients with Implant services to replace missing teeth, as well as complete full mouth rehabilitation.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy keeping an active and healthy lifestyle. I played soccer throughout my childhood and into college, and I still play today. I also enjoy hiking, reading, and traveling. I also had the opportunity to visit quite a few countries around the globe, such as Brazil, Italy, Thailand, Panama, and more.
