Its combining those with a higher level of experience and skill, as demonstrated by Dr. Adams and Dr. Feliciano-Turner to help patients get the most out of their oral health. Its about improving your life- not just your smile.
When Dr. Adams purchased an existing practice and took over the legacy of Dr. Jeff Jarvis, he understood the current expectations of the community. He knew he had to continue to deliver quality dental care that exceeded the standard while reflecting the lifestyle of his patients. This meant establishing a dental office that provides patient-focused dentistry that revolves around the overall wellness of the patient.
Our community values education, and we aspire to provide the highest level of care we can through our continued training. Dr. Adams and Dr. Turner believethat continuing education provides a direct benefit to their patients, as they are committed to providing the Blackhawk community with the most advanced dentistry. This is why they have dedicated a significant amount of their time (both inside and outside of the office) to attending seminars and educational courses in order to be ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest and greatest treatment options for their patients. Dr. Adams and Dr. Turner invest in their patients future.
At Blackhawk Dental Care, Dr. Brian Adams and his team asked themselves the question WHY? WHY do their patients come to them?

Dr. Adams and Dr. Feliciano-Turner believe that they have a responsibility to each patient that walks through their door. A responsibility to build a trusting relationship through the care they provide.

Dr. Brian Adams worked as a management consultant until age 30, but he just didnt have the passion for it. There was always something about dentistry that piqued his interest, and the idea of improving the quality of life for a patient was a mission Dr. Adams was ready to stand behind. He has always enjoyed helping others, and dentistry offered him the chance to make a difference in the lives of his patients and to watch their smiles grow.
Dr. Adams earned his dental degree from the University of Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Since graduation, he has taken well over 1,000 hours of continuing education, far beyond what is required.
In 2012, he was accepted as a clinical mentor at the prestigious Kois Center of Dental Excellence. This rigorous five-year curriculum in Seattle, Washington includes complex restorative casework and a series of written and oral examinations. This puts Dr. Adams into an elite group of dentists that have shown proficiency in all aspects of restorative dentistry.
In addition, Dr. Adams is a board member of the Contra Costa Dental Peer Review Committee, where he was nominated by his dental peers to help maintain the standard of care for practicing dentists throughout California. This committee is comprised of local dentists that have demonstrated clinical excellence in their field and choose to give back to their professional community.
Dr. Adams invests in continuing education and specialized training because he believes his dental knowledge will pay dividends in his patients care. He believes that by investing additional time outside of the practice into expanding his dental knowledge, his patients will see obvious dividends in their care.
When he purchased Blackhawk Dental Care from Dr. Jeff Jarvis, he knew hed need the support of a great team of professionals, which lead him to bringing on Dr. Michelle Feliciano-Turner. Dr. Adams has great confidence in his team and is committed to delivering the finest dental care to all his patients.
