Dr. Lara

Hello, my name is Dr. Fabiola Lara.  I am delighted to provide you and your family with the highest quality dental care.  I was raised in the San Francisco bay area and I attended UCSF School of Dentistry.  I started as a public health doctor at the Native American Health Center in San Francisco.  Along the way I preformed cleft lip and palate surgery with a team of other doctors in Wenzhou China and Ghana Africa.  After noticing a need for compassionate dental carer in our own community so I entered the private sector to provide orthodontic services at a reasonable price.  I enjoy working with families, young people and the elderly.  I am proud of my excellent staff providing quality care.
