Professional Memberships

From dental assistant to periodontist, combining her passion for art and science to help you achieve healthy gums and a beautiful smile.

Dr. Olivares is an excellent periodontist. She took the time to do a thorough exam and talk with me about what was going on. She ordered a sophisticated level of X-rays and testing for possible genetic problems to accurately diagnose my problem. The surgery she did on my gums went very well and I healed quickly.
