Dr. Lorie Mann graduated from the prestigious Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry at San Francisco’s University of the Pacific (UOP) and then immediately put on the uniform of the US Air Force, working as a dentist and officer. For the next six years, she refined her considerable dentistry skills at both Los Angeles and Vandenberg Air Force Bases. She treated patients from all branches of the military, and soon realized that even the toughest and bravest patient can get a little shaky when sitting in the dentist’s chair. Lorie’s compassion and empathy immediately instilled confidence and reassurance in her most fearful of patients. Her natural attention-to-detail personality made Lorie a stand-out in the Air Force base dental facilities and that recognition continues to this day.
In 2009, Dr. Pinedo welcomed Dr. Mann into her busy practice, recognizing a similar dental philosophy, centered upon transformative care and a true concern for overall patient wellness.
Lorie says it best herself, “I love what I do and there is nothing better than working with patients to make their smiles healthier and more vibrant. I also like working on kids, and strive DAILY to change the opinions of those who are not members of the dentist fan club!”
