Ronald Cunning D.D.S. — Cunning Dental Group Founder

As a highly respected member of his field, Dr. Cunning continues to refine the dental industry by increasing his knowledge and therefore enhancing the experience of his patients.

Dr. Cunning was one of the first dentists in California licensed to practice IV sedation or “dentistry while you sleep.” He was undoubtedly one of the most experienced doctors to use this procedure, having practiced sedation dentistry in his office since 1968. Now he employs multiple, highly trained sedation dentists to continue his legacy.

I’ve always believed that the best way to give my patients top-quality dental care is by having a solid balance of education and training. To this day, I keep increasing my knowledge with more than the required hours of continuing education courses each year.

I’m very proud to be a member of the different professional organizations. It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet with my fellow dentists. We can share information that ultimately helps our patients get more advanced, gentle care.

I’m proud to have been recognized for my efforts in dental school. More importantly, I believe those accomplishments served as the standards I now maintain for the kind of care my patients deserve.

I began practicing dentistry here in 1968, and since then have tried to foster growth in our local business environment.
