Dr. Mark A. Barraza

"I'm celebrating my 33rd year providing high quality Dental Care to the South County communities. One of the many satisfying aspects of my practice is the many personal friendships that have developed over the years between myself, our patients, and my great office staff. We enjoy creating beautiful smiles, and we really do have fun!"

Advanced Dental Care Through Collaboration

"My membership and participation in professional associations have allowed me to learn from the combined experience of all my peers. At association meetings, we discuss solutions for difficult cases, share new research, exchange effective techniques and generally build our base of knowledge in order to benefit you, the patient."

A Commitment to Higher Education for a Higher Level of Advanced Dental Care

"My continuing commitment to extensive education is a powerful tool that helps me give you and your family the high caliber of dental care you deserve. I continue to attend many hours of professional courses and seminars to enhance my knowledge in the disciplines of orthodontics, clear braces, implants and cosmetic dental techniques. This year I completed my training the California Implant Institute. I look forward to providing dental implants to my patients to help them achieve the high quality dental care they deserve."

Dr. Barraza earned his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of California at Riverside in 1978. He continued his education to earn concurrently his BS in Dental Sciences and Doctor of Dental Surgery at the UCSF School of Dentistry, which is consistently ranked one of the top two dental schools in the nation.
