Get to Know Dr. Vanina Arrechea
Dr. Arrechea spends a lot of time listening to her patients so she can learn everything about their concerns and goals, and she uses that information to develop personalized treatment plans to help them get where they want to go. It’s an extremely rewarding and fulfilling process, as no two patients are the same, but they are always thrilled once they see their new smile. A 20+ year dental veteran, Dr. Arrechea can’t wait to welcome you into our practice, and you can start getting to know her below.
Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Arrechea was interested in the medical field from an early age. She ultimately chose dentistry because it would allow her to engage in her passion for helping others through healthcare while also leaving her plenty of time to be a great mom.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Arrechea earned her first dental degree in 1999 in her native Argentina, and she came to the United States in 2001. She worked at Glidewell Dental Lab until 2008 when she enrolled at the University of Southern California Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. She graduated in 2010 and was an associate dentist at multiple corporate offices before starting our practice in 2013.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Arrechea is the proud mother of three children, and she is a self-proclaimed bibliophile that says reading is her favorite vice. She also loves to go to the movies, travel, and spend quality time with friends and family.
