Dr. Freitas is thrilled to be practicing dentistry in his hometown. He was not only born and raised in Brentwood, but he is also a sixth generation resident of our town. After graduating from Liberty High School, Dr. Freitas completed his Bachelor's of Science in Biological Sciences at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. Then, after graduating from Pacific, he attended the University of Southern California School of Dentistry where he spent the next four years mastering his craft and rooting for the Trojans at every home football game.
Since attaining his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, Dr. Freitas settled down once again in Brentwood with his wife, Shelley, and their dog, Barkley. When not in the office, he can be found out on the Marsh Creek Trail, either on a bike ride with his wife or on a run with his dog. Dr. Freitas has completed a few marathons and just completed his 2014 New Years Resolution of running at least a mile everyday for the 2014 year. He completed the year with over 2,100 miles run and a personal best marathon in December at the CIM Marathon in Sacramento. For 2015 he is hoping to continue his daily running and try and spend more time getting to the coast on days off for diving.
Dr. Freitas is excited to be working in a state of the art office in downtown Brentwood where he can provide quality, conservative and patient centered dental care in a comfortable environment.
Dr. Freitas is currently an active member of the Contra Costa Dental Society, California Dental Association, American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. Furthermore, Dr. Freitas spends time throughout the year discussing new trends in patient care with colleagues as a member of the Delta Study Club, the local component of the Seattle Study Club. He spends as much time as possible attending continuing education courses in order to keep up to date on all the newest techniques to help provide comprehensive dental care in a comfortable environment.
Dr. Freitas welcomes all East Contra Costa County residents from Brentwood, Oakley, Discovery Bay, Byron, Knightsen and Bethel Island to our practice.
