Dr. Lata R. Stefano, DDS

Dentistry | Female | 47 years old

It is important that my practice stays on the cutting edge of all the evolving trends, treatments, and techniques in the dental field. For this reason, continuing education isn't an option; it's a necessity. Each year, I attend many courses, seminars, and study groups that cover unique areas of study, and our whole team is required to attend continuing education courses to ensure that every person in my practice is highly skilled, proficient, professional, and at the top of the game. We do all of this for the benefit of our patients because we want nothing but the best for each of them.
