Lavorini Dental Care is made up of 18 people who share one mission, and that is to help our patients to accomplish their dental goals and feel good about their teeth in the most affordable and comfortable way possible. We have been doing this a long time and have been very successful with patients who have trouble going to the dentist, either because they were afraid of the treatment or of the cost. We provide the best in class Oakland dental care, individualized to each patient. Our practice is a family affair with staff who have worked here for many years.

Meet the Owner: Dr.Ernie Lavorini
Ernie graduated from the University of California at San Francisco in 1973, Cum Laude. After working for a dentist in Berkeley he opened his own practice on 17th street in Oakland. For 30 years he was one of the few providers that accepted denti-cal patients during the time that the state provided dental care.
What our patients have to say about us:
Ed “SF Travel Examiner” U.’s Profile
Monica G.’s Profile
I’m so relieved to have found a great dentist in Oakland.
The office is nice and clean, and they have CABLE TV! Watching Millionaire Matchmaker helps me get through any discomfort–thinking about how my nice teeth will help me meet Mr. Millionaire! ;)
Joanne “Eats Other People’s Leftovers” Y.’s Profile
They make me feel totally comfortable (no lectures or embarassment) and I like that I always know what the bill is going to be up front.
I was seriously dreading going to the dentist this morning. I HATE going to the dentist… or should I say, I USED to hate going to the dentist. After seeing Dr. Fong this morning, I have completely changed my view of the dentist!
Sara B.’s Profile
Dr. Fong takes a personal interest in her patients. She always asks me what I’ve been up to and is genuinely excited when my life takes a turn for the better. I can’t recommend her enough.
