Dr. Lawryn Monterroso
Meet our new Associate, Dr. Lawryn Monterroso.
Lawryn started working with us in May this year after a move from Loma Linda, CA. She and her husband, Dr. Mark Monterroso come to us via Loma Linda University. Lawryn graduated several years ago while Mark finished Medical school this year. Mark is continuing his training in Emergency Medicine at Kaweah Delta Hospital.
Lawryn has a rich background in the field of dentistry. Her father and Brother are also dentists, making for a woman who has been steeped in the conversation and philosophy of dentistry from an early age.
She and her family had the rare opportunity to spend a month in Africa running a field clinic where she gained as much hands-on experience as one does in the last two clinical years of Dental training.
We are excited to have her on our team. I have observed her for several months, and am finding that she is not only highly professional, but personally approachable. She is as skilled clinically as anyone I've seen. She enjoys, not only the more routine procedures that dentistry brings with it, but is very accomplished at oral surgery and cosmetic dentistry as well. She’s an excellent communicator.
Our team has come to love her already, and feedback from patients in terms of her delivery of quality dentistry is consistently excellent.
I know that if you have the opportunity to meet her you’ll agree that our community has gained a very valuable new member.
