Meet Dr. Cynthia Lagasca-Ignacio
Dr. Ignacio has a true passion for dentistry, and for providing the best care possible to her family of patients. Patient education is the cornerstone of her practice, and she realizes that taking the time to educate her patients about their teeth and gums is crucial to achieving their ultimate dental health. She believes that partnering with her patients in the decision-making process for their teeth is the best way to ensure that they feel good about the dental treatment they receive, and she does her best to ensure they receive care in a comfortable and caring environment.
Her undergraduate studies were completed at the University of California, at Davis, and she found her way to dentistry after a career in the field of Microbiology. After working for two years as a Microbiologist, she realized she wanted to combine her love of microbiology with playing a part in improving the health of others. It was then that she decided that a career in dentistry was the perfect fit of both worlds.
She obtained her dental degree from the esteemed Arthur A. Dugoni, University of Pacific Dental School, San Francisco, in 1999, and has been happily practicing in Dublin, California ever since. She serves patients from all over the Tri-Valley, Bay Area, and sometimes from across the world!
Dr. Ignacio is a long-standing active member of the California Dental Association, American Dental Association, Southern Alameda County Dental Society, and various study groups, all of which keep her aware of the most current concepts and techniques in dental medicine.
If you were to ask her what her hobby is, she'd say "dentistry!," but she also loves to travel, read, and spend time with her husband Eric, and two daughters, Sara and Sophia.
