About The Seyfried Dental Team

We are so fortunate to be able to serve the wonderful communities of Carson Valley. We are conveniently located in Minden, near the junction of U.S. Highway 395 and State Route 88. Just a short ten-minute drive from Gardnerville or Nevada’s oldest settlement, Genoa. Our lovely valley is surrounded on the east and west by mountains that are sometimes snow-capped year-round. Dr. Seyfried and his faithful fur baby, Barley, can be found many weekends on the local hiking trails or fishing at nearby Topaz Lake or the Carson River. Winter brings with it some of the best skiing in the world to our beautiful area. South Lake Tahoe is a quick trip up the Kingsbury Grade and the town of Stateline is the gateway to the amazing year-round resort known as Heavenly Valley. You will definitely run into Dr. Seyfried on the slopes so keep an eye out for him when you are out enjoying everything our lovely Carson Valley has to offer.

You will never have to wait long for your appointment. We know that waiting rooms are not very fun places to be, and so we do all we can to minimize the time you are there. If we can ever do anything to make your visit more comfortable, please let us know.

Meet the Doctor

Dr. Seyfried graduated from USC School of Dentistry in 1984 with a dual license to practice in the states of California and Nevada. He then settled in Encinitas, California where he built his general dentistry practice over the period of the next 22 years. During that time, he attended numerous advanced education programs including the Las Vegas Institute for Cosmetic Dentistry. In addition to a comprehensive list of “nuts and bolts” dental services, Dr. Seyfried’s office offers Invisalign, implants, orthodontics, dentures, teeth whitening, sports retainers, snore guards, and periodontal disease treatments.

Dr. Seyfried also offers many services to enhance your smile. These include porcelain veneers and beautiful all-porcelain crowns (no metal to hide). Dr. Seyfried makes most of his crowns in-office. He is proud of the quality and workmanship of the beautiful smiles he creates. The team continually stays abreast of the latest advances in techniques and materials available to the patient. There are also a variety of anaesthetic options to ensure optimum comfort for our patients during the procedures.

For many years, Dr. Seyfried has been an active member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, San Diego Dental Society, American Academy of Sleep Dentistry, Clinical Research Associates, the Dental Board of Ethics, Northern Nevada Dental Society and the Nevada Dental Association. He is very proud to have been voted 2015’s “Best Dentist in Carson Valley”. He will strive to continue providing the most beautiful smiles in the valley.

In 2006, Dr. Seyfried decided to make a lifestyle change and moved to the great state of Nevada where he is now practicing in Minden. He enjoys fly-fishing, skiing, playing the drums, hiking, and backpacking.
