Dr. Leo Fierro
I was born and raised in Lima, Peru. I completed my Oral Surgeon degree in Dentistry from the Universidad Nacional Mayor De San Marcos, also known as the “Dean University of the Americas” in 1998. After I met my wife in 2004, we made the decision to move to California where I worked as a Dental Assistant and as a Dental Health Educator for a few years. Ultimately, I pursued and graduated in 2014 with my doctorate from the International Dental Program at De la Salle University in Mexico, allowing me to receive my dental license as a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of the Pacific, in San Francisco, CA.
I came to resonate with the idea that behind each tooth is a living/breathing individual. Each has fears, wants, desires, and no two were the same. I learned that compassion and integrity were vital in delivering superior dental care. In the end, if we failed to treat the person respectfully, with special attention to their needs, it didn’t matter how nice a tooth looked or if their problems were “fixed”. This experience carried me through dental school and into my career. I have thus, used this to set a foundation of principles and values that the practice will operate under. I belong to many organizations and am an active participant in organized dentistry. I am a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the Hispanic Dental Association.
It has been an amazing journey with much more ahead. I am grateful for my wonderful wife and child who supports me day in and day out. They are the key factor in my motivation to become the best husband, father, and dentist I can become. We also enjoy serving in our church and community and are thankful for the great blessings we have received being a part of making a difference in the lives of others. When I am not working, I enjoy running, traveling, and enjoying time with my family and friends.
