Ed Loev grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his parents and younger brother. He was and is an avid athlete and takes pride in his health. He attended Penn State University for his undergraduate degree and University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine where he earned his DMD (Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry). Dr. Loev graduated from Dental School during the Vietnam conflict and decided to serve his country as a dental officer in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corp. During his three years.. of service he was mostly based off the coast of Vietnam and in Okinawa. Dr. Loev visited California as a young man prior to entering dental school and loved it, often dreaming of returning. The military facilitated his dream and his final duty post was on Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay. While remaining in the Naval reserves he moved to San Francisco and established a thriving downtown practice in the 450 Sutter Medical Building in the Union Square/ Financial district. He met his Swedish wife Birgitta in the Bay Area and raised 3 children in Marin County where they continue to live.
Dr. Loev very much enjoyed caring for his patients and after 15 years of general practice was introduced to the enticing and advancing art of cosmetic dentistry. He quickly became obsessed with "smile design," and transforming patients smiles and in some cases their whole lives though cosmetic dentistry. While still committed to maintaining his comprehensive dental practice he has focused and continues to focus a significant part of his time on staying at the forefront of dental technology and attends many continuing education courses to allow him to create and maintain beautiful smiles.
