group practices in Southern California. She received her
Bachelor of Science in Biology from UC Riverside (magna cum
laude, Phi Beta Kappa). She is a graduate of UCLA School of
Dentistry (Dean’s Apollonian Scholarship) and received her Master of Science in
Oral Biology from UCLA at the same time. After graduation she participated in the
General Practice Residency at Loma Linda VA Medical Center in Loma Linda,
CA. and a mini-residency at Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center in Downey, CA.,

As a mother of three, Dr. Letran creatively balances work, family life, after-school
life and her personal life as a growing entrepreneur. She continuously takes courses
in clinical dentistry, practice management and marketing, striving to improve
her skills to better serve patients. Her favorite activities include reading, writing,
and “hanging out” with her three children – whether playing tennis, watching Netflix
or window-shopping at the mall.
For Dr. Letran, it is an honor and privilege to be part of her patients’ lives. As she
watches kids growing up, grandparents getting old, the passing of spouses, the
courage of the people left behind, individuals going through tough times like job
loss or marital separation, she is reminded that the most important thing in life are
the relationships we build with other human beings. She is proud to be a small part
of these relationships – the ones she shares with patients.
Dr. Letran is actively involved in professional organizations, because she knows
peers are an invaluable source of new information, and membership in these organizations
lets her gain insight into events that are shaping the future of dentistry.
She also engages in community service, sponsoring multiple local school
and charity events, including the Annual Free Dentistry Day in local communities,
where she and her dental team work for two days to provide free dentistry for the
less fortunate in area communities.
