Our practice is built

For over 25 years Dr. Catherine Cox has provided professional dental care for thousands of Marin County families. Recently she re-branded her business becoming Northgate Dental for two reasons; to help new patients discover her years of superior dentistry. And to remind current and new patients how convenient her location is just off Hwy 101 next to Northgate Mall in Terra Linda. Both opportunities were too good to pass up!

We’ve Changed Our Name

Previously known as Catherine Cox DDS, we are proud to announce our new business name, Northgate Dental.  Dr. Cox will continue to provide leading family dental care supported by a friendly and caring staff of over a decade. To compliment our new name we’ve added a vastly improved website, a new logo brand, and current patient offering that includes a FREE Sinsational Smile teeth whitening. Simply refer a friend to us to qualify.

We Are Dental Professionals

Same Day Crowns

Our amazing Cerec machine allows us create a same day crown for your tooth. The Cerec 3D software takes the digital picture of the prepared tooth and converts it into a 3-dimensional virtual model on the computer screen. We use our dental expertise to design the restoration using the Cerec 3D computer program. A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine and about 30 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-colored crown is finished and ready to bond into place. Your tooth is now restored all done in a single appointment! More Same Day Crowns…

Cutting Edge Technology

As a leading dentist in her field, Dr. Cox understands the importance of comfort and time saving technical conveniences like Cerac Same Day Crowns, safer Digital X-rays, the Intra-Oral Camera and quieter electric drills. And to improve accessibility and transparency for her patients, she modernized her web site to reflect those needs.  More about Technology…

Cosmetic Procedures

Northgate Dental is known for cosmetic and restorative procedures that focus on your health as well as your looks. These include the convenient same day crowns which save you a lot of time. We also offer porcelain veneers and three teeth whitening options. Our goal is always to provide dental solutions that fit your needs. This is no easy task, but at Northgate Dental we are up to the challenge. More about Cosmetic Dentistry…

Preventive Dentistry

Building and maintaining healthy smiles is our mission at Northgate Dental. We believe that a healthy mouth can contribute to a healthy body. Research shows that bacteria and inflammation linked to Periodontitis can play a role in some systemic diseases and conditions. Likewise, diseases such as diabetes, blood cell disorders and age can lower the bodies resistance to infection, making periodontal disease more severe. Routine cleanings can help prevent inflammation and its detrimental effects on your guns and bone. More about Preventive Dentistry…

Family Dentistry

Everything we do at Northgate Dental is aimed at providing convenience and comfort for the whole family, from the appointment scheduling, to the billing, to the actual treatment. We work with a wide age group including children of all ages. Northgate Dental provides a local feel good experience you can count on, providing both general and family dentistry backed by cutting edge technology in a modern and tech friendly environment. More about Family Dentistry…

Implant Dentistry

Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to bridgework or dentures that don’t fit well. A dental implant is a metal post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. An artificial tooth (crown) is placed on an extension of the post (abutment) on the dental implant, giving you the look of a real tooth. The major benefit of implants is solid support for your new teeth. More about Implant Dentistry…

DENTAL INSURANCE ACCEPTED

We help you submit your insurance claims making our services faster and easier and less stressful. Our goal is to provide a transparent and consistent dental experience both at the office and on our website.

Ask Us Questions

We understand that dental insurance can be rather confusing at times. If you are covered by dental insurance we will be happy to contact your insurance company and determine your benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. However, our office is dedicated to helping you understand your dental insurance and maximize your benefits.

As a courtesy to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services on their behalf. We firmly believe that optimal dentistry should be available to everybody, with or without insurance. Most insurances accepted.

Northgate Dental Testimonials

Dr. Catherine Cox has that perfect blend of professionalism, expertise and warmth. She always puts her patients first. Her office is extremely well run and she is available, if needed, for emergencies. Super friendly and knowledgeable experience that included all the latest technology. She just has that magic touch.

Mona S, Cracked Tooth

Dr. Catherine Cox is the most thorough, compassionate, kind and professional dentist I’ve ever had. My 2 1/2 yr old son is also a patient. She’s very sharp and a great people person. Today she did a same day crown for me in her office in 3 hours. Amazing! Her staff is very friendly and knowledgeable too. I highly recommend her.

Dana M, Same Day Crown

I wanted to share a great experience I had at Northgate Dental recently. I had to be in the chair for quite a while for multiple crowns and Dr. Cox gave me headphones which connected to my iPhone so I could relax and not even hear the drill. Our whole family goes to Dr. Cox and we all recommend her highly.

Barbara M, Multiple Crowns

One of the best teeth cleaning experiences I’ve had in a while. Very gentle but thorough. Office staff, hygienist, and Dr. Cox were very professional. Took the dread out of going to the dentist. Everyone in the office was friendly, exam was thorough, and was done by Dr. Cox herself. Definitely recommend!

Nicole K, Teeth Cleaning

I have to say I enjoy my visits to Northgate Dental a lot. I especially like the staff, they are friendly and caring. And Dr. Cox always explains what she is doing and discusses my options openly and without any pressure. I like the new technology like same day crowns, and appreciate that she stays current on all my dental options.
