Dr. Mina Arbabaraghi
Dr. Mina was born and raised in the Bay Area. She attended UC Berkeley, where she obtained her bachelor’s degree. After graduation, she matriculated into dental school at Roseman College of Dental Medicine in Utah. She then moved back to the Bay Area to be close to family until she met her fiance, who brought her out to Sacramento. Dr. Mina’s ultimate goal is to listen to patient concerns and devise an optimal treatment plan that best fits the patient. She is aware of how common it is to have anxiety at the dentist and she strives to make it as comfortable of a process as possible. Growing up, she loved going to the dentist and felt like it was visiting an old friend. This is what she now aims to do for all of her patients. In her spare time, Dr. Mina enjoys spending time with family, especially her twin sister (who is also a dentist)! She has run several half marathons and also plays soccer. Although she has no kids yet, she has a Maltipoo who keeps her just as busy!
