MEET THE TEAM

Dr. Gretchen grew up in the Bay Area, calling Richmond her home for the first 18 years of her life. She enjoyed her high school years at Pinole Valley High before attending Occidental College in Los Angeles. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychobiology with a Minor in English Literature, she attended New York University College of Dentistry for her dental education. Despite the distance, Dr. Gretchen remained closely connected to her family and friends back in California. It was only natural that she return home to the Bay Area upon the completion of her dental school education. Since 2005, she has practiced dentistry in El Cerrito, Pinole and Hercules, and has continued to learn and strive for dental excellence through attending an abundance of continuing education courses and participating in several local dental study clubs. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Gretchen’s interests include arts and crafts, target shooting, karaoke, cats, word games and keeping up with her daughter!
