Dr. Sharon Gabriel
Dr. Sharon Gabriel was born, raised and educated in Southern California. Having practiced over fifteen years, she has received both her Bachelors Degree in Dental Hygiene and her Doctorate in Dental Surgery respectively at the University of Southern California. She continued on to do residency training at the University of California at San Francisco and received her advanced training in general dentistry certification while she continued on in private practice in the Bay Area. Dr. Gabriel dually holds her California and Hawaii Dental Licensure and practiced for several years on the Big Island of Hawaii. There she expanded her facets in multiple areas of dentistry where there was not access to as many specialties in dentistry readily available to the population. Here she was able to put much of her talents to work in restorative, endodontic, oral surgery, and pediatric dentistry.
She returned to Southern California with the emphasis on maintaining high clinical aspirations and staying technologically astute in her field. Dr. Gabriel strives to embody the best advances in dentistry, as well as maintaining a comfortable, inviting setting for her patients. She brings her expertise in her years of experience both to the team as well as her patients. Her goal is to keep current in as many aspects of general dentistry as possible including endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, and most recently neuromuscular dentistry.
She enjoys traveling, keeping physically fit through cross training and sports. Dr. Gabriel spends most of her time keeping up with her son Cole.
