Meet the Doctors

Tamir Wardany DDS

Diplomate American Board of Oral Implantology

Dr. Tamir Wardany is one of the few board certified oral implantologists in Northern California who holds Diplomate status with the American Board of Oral Implantology. He has dedicated the past 17 years to extensive training in dental implant surgery and its associated procedures, which include complex bone augmentation and sinus augmentation. After completing Dental School in Tennessee, Dr. Wardany completed a fellowship in implant dentistry through State University of New York at Stonybrook.

Dr. Wardany then continued spending extensive time in Europe, training alongside some of the world’s leaders in implant surgical procedures and bone augmentation surgery including Dr. Istvan Urban, who is widely considered the premier authority on the subject. Training with Dr. Urban and others in this field has guided Dr. Wardany’s concepts and techniques of advanced bone augmentations, such as complex vertical augmentation, vestibular reconstruction, horizontal augmentation, and compromised site development for future implant placement.

In addition, Dr. Wardany has collaborated on research studies related to bone and implant biology with the department of reconstructive surgery at Stanford University and actively lectures for Gesitlich Biomaterials, a leading regenerative company based in Switzerland. In an effort to always be on the forefront of this specialization, Dr. Wardany maintains membership with the International Team for Implantology and the Osteology Foundation. Both groups focus on research to further the quality of care in implant surgery and complex graft procedures.

In 2016, Dr. Wardany established the first and currently only implantology dental practice in Sacramento, with the sole focus of ridge and sinus augmentation surgeries and implant placement surgeries, based on referrals from local general dentists. In 2009, Dr. Wardany started a multi-specialty dental practice located in San Francisco that has become one of the most respected practices in the Bay Area where he focuses on the surgical aspects of implant dentistry. In addition to being one of the very few American Board certified Oral Implantologists nationally, Dr. Wardany prides himself on his honesty as well as his ethical and clinical abilities, giving his patients the most beneficial treatment for their functional and aesthetic needs.

Dr. Wardany was a former collegiate swimmer born and raised in sacramento. He lives in Sacramento with his wife and three amazing and energetic children, and once in a while still gets time to swim a few laps in the pool and watch 49er football. 

Kristen Kemmer

Dr. Kemmer is very excited about joining the team at Wardany Dentistry in serving San Francisco and the surrounding communities. Born and raised in Bay City, Michigan, she received her Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry at Saginaw Valley State University and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry.

After Dental School, she moved to Southern California to complete a General Practice Residency at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, where she was the Chief Academic Resident. After practicing in Los Angeles and Michigan, Dr. Kemmer is excited to be in San Francisco and using her special gift of dentistry to serve others. She is always looking to help, and actively seeks out different opportunities to do so. She has volunteered as a part of a dental mission trip to Honduras, has been able to participate in multiple states with the Give Kids a Smile Day – where thousands of underserved children receive free oral health services – and most recently has been able to help Michigan residents through the Michigan Dental
Association’s Mission of Mercy event. Beyond dentistry, she was a mentor to a girls youth soccer team during her time in Southern California; she looks forward to getting more involved with the community and finding ways to serve those in need.

Dr. Kemmer loves to remain active and is excited to explore all of the local trails! She enjoys nearly all sports, but especially loves soccer and captained her women’s varsity team in college. She also enjoys yoga, reading, spending time with loved ones and all of the wonderful things Northern California has to offer.

She is committed to educating you about your oral healthcare and making you feel welcome in our office. Dr. Kemmer loves working with patients of all ages and can’t wait to serve you at Wardany Dentistry!
