 Susan L. Nuttle, D.D.S.

General, Pediatric, & Orthodontic Dentistry

When you visit our Pinole Shores Dental office, your smile is our top priority.  Dr. Susan L. Nuttle and her entire dental team are committed to providing you with the personalized, high quality dental care that you deserve.

Dr. Nuttle provides patients with a comprehensive list of general, restorative and cosmetic dental services designed to meet the  needs of  the whole family, from children 1+ years of age to adults and seniors. 




At Susan L. Nuttle, D.D.S., Inc., your health and the health of our staff are of the utmost importance.  To ensure your health and the health of our staff, we do follow strict CDC and ADA infection control guidance in our operatories and office. Additionally, every half hour to an hour we wipe down the waiting room and common spaces with disinfectant.

For the protection of all our patients and staff due the recent outbreak of coronavirus, we are requesting the following:

If you have an illness or are exhibiting symptoms, we recommend you cancel and reschedule your dental appointment. Some illness and symptoms include:

  • a cold or the flu
  •  fever or nausea
  • severe headaches or body aches
  • muscle or stomach pain, chest pain or difficulty breathing
  • vomiting or diarrhea
  • active tuberculosis (TB)
  • mumps, measles, chickenpox
  • other contagious disease

Please notify our staff before your appointment if you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled to one of the countries with large outbreaks of COVID-19 (ex. China, Italy, Iran, South Korea) or if you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or who was quarantined as a precaution. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us immediately.   The below links provide additional information regarding the coronavirus:


As California moves forward with reopening the economy and lifting the statewide mask mandate for fully vaccinated individuals on June, 15, 2021, our office is communicating with our patients very clearly that face coverings will still be required in the dental office.  Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that all parties, including patients and visitors, should continue wearing face coverings  in health care settings, including dental offices, regardless of their vaccination status.

Our team will continue to monitor the situation and provide updated information when warranted.  Thank you for your patronage.


Surgically Clean Air 

At Pinole Shores Dental, Dr. Nuttle and her staff are committed to the health and safety of our patients.  We follow the highest standards of hygiene and sterilization in our office.  Now with 4 separate Surgically Clean Air-Jade Purifiers serving our office, we are going beyond sterilization surfaces and instruments that we use and actually cleaning the air that we breathe!

What is Really in the Air We Breathe?

The Pollutants in the air we breathe can cause anything from allergy symptoms to serious health complications.  Dust & Dirt, Skin Cells, and Allergens are less harmful ones.  However, there are minuscule organisms can be more serious pollutants, such as mold, bacteria, fungus, viruses, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Our Air Purifiers vs. Impurities

RTI International has tested several organisms against our Jade Air Purifier with resounding results.  With a virus organism in the air, the test proved that less than 15 minutes, the Jade Air Purifier removed 99.998% of particles 0.1 microns in size which is the size of a typical virus!  The same results were found in cases of fungal and bacterial organisms, making our purifiers perfect choice for our dental office.

Surgically Clean Air- Jade Purifier uses multi-stage air purifying technologies that work together to clean, purify and re-energize the indoor air.  The 6-stage filtration system captures dust particles, pollen, VOCs, gasses, mold, allergens, viruses, order, bio-aerosols, and many other pollutants that are found in the inside air in workplaces.  The negative ion generator makes indoor feel more pure, clean and energized to help combat fatigues. 

Pinole Shores Dental’s Commitment to a Clean Practice

Every day, our staff diligently sterilizes the tools we use, the chairs our patients sit in, and our entire office.  With out Jade Air Purifiers, our dental practice will also have medical-grade, surgically clean air.  No matter the time of year or the infections spreading in our area, you will always have clean dentistry that you can trust and count on at Dr. Susan Nuttle’s office!
