A Quick Note from Dr. Sonia Molina DMD MPH:
Since 1992, my practice, Molina Endodontics, has served Los Angeles' southeast communities with expert dental care using innovative root canal techniques and technology in a patient-friendly environment.
Having performed more than 20,000 root canals, I can tell you that earning the trust of patients is just as important to any endodontist as is skill and technique. This is what keeps our patients coming back -- the trust that they have in knowing that we will care for their smile.
This year, it is my pleasure to announce that I will also have the honor to serve you as the new 2011-2012 President of the Los Angeles Dental Society. I will be leading the 1,200-member organization as the first Latina president in its 76-year-history. Exciting!
I invite you all to attend my installation dinner at Taglyan Cultural Center on Saturday, October 29. For more information about the event, please contact my office at (562) 904-1807.
