The Dr. Sara Gomez Story
Dr. Gomez’s interest in general dentistry and endodontics began with an emergency visit to the dental office. She was so grateful to her dentist for alleviating her dental pain by performing a root canal therapy that she decided to pursue a profession in dentistry.
As she shadowed her general dentist and volunteered in many dental outreach programs, she became increasingly excited about the path that she had chosen. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Central Oklahoma where she was bestowed lifetime membership into the Tri Beta Biological Honors Society and the Golden Key International Honors Society.
Having had a root canal herself, she understands what her patients anticipate and experience. This allows her to provide the highest standard of professional care in a friendly, comfortable environment.
The elements Dr. Gomez enjoys most of her endodontic work are the technical aspects of this part of dentistry as well as the reward of helping people get out of pain.
