Meet our dentist
Dr Lata Karir truly believes that a real smile comes from within, but she can help unlock it!
She is all about passion and compassion. A passion for dentistry and compassion for the patients is what you will experience when you visit our office. She combines many years of experience in the dental field, with her gentle and friendly personality. She likes to provide the best care to her patients, and will go the extra mile to ensure that.
Dr Lata loved science as a child, and got very interested in healthcare. She got her dental education in India, and started practicing dentistry there. Over the course of her career, she has also worked with several Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons.
Her experience enables her to excel at complex procedures that many dentists must refer out to other offices. After moving to the US, she continued her dental training, passed the California Dental Board exams, and went on to acquire a license to practice dentistry in California. She continues to keep herself updated through continuing education courses she attends regularly.
Dr Lata is also a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Joaquin Dental Society, and Punjabi Dental Society.
Dr Lata feels strongly for apprehensive patients, and tries to help them by treating them as gently as she can. One day, she hopes to see all her patients - especially the children - be fearless about visiting the dentist.
Outside of dentistry, she has a passion for music (especially Indian Classical) and dance. She has been a student of music and dance for several years, and spends her free time learning and performing.
She is a dedicated mother of two, and loves to spend loads of quality time with her children.
She is committed to educating the girl child, and has provided financial support to several girls so they can complete their education.
