Dr. Kolander's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kolander "Dr. Kolander graduated UCSF in 1996 Magna Cum Laude. He earned the highest honor awarded by the faculty and fellow students with the Francis A. Sooy, UCSF cup. He was selected for a residency at the VA in Martinez upon graduation from dental school. He has been practicing at this location since 1997. He is member of the ADA, CDA, and SDDS and OKU, the National Dental Honor Society. Dr. Kolander is the sole practitioner in this dental office that has a long history of dentistry in this location. He grew up in Fair Oaks where his father, Dr. Perry Kolander, practiced dentistry in this location since the early 1970's. He was able to help out around the office and decided during his undergraduate studies that he wanted to pursue dentistry. Our practice is unique in that many of our patients have been coming here since they were little children and love to tell us about all the changes that have occurred in Fair Oaks over the past 50 plus years. Our staff has been with our practice for many years and is dedicated to making your visit pleasant."
