Dr. Aparna Borole is a highly skilled dentist with over 10 years of experience in general dentistry and provides comprehensive dental care to patients of all ages. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2009 and graduated with Cum Laude honors at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, which is regarded as a premiere dental school.
Before going to dental school, Dr. Borole majored in Cell and Molecular Biology from University of Texas at Austin. With a 4.0 GPA and a 99 percentile result on the Dental Admission Test, she got admission into the topmost dental school one year short of finishing her major. After graduating from dental school, Dr. Borole practiced for a year in Texas and then moved to California with her family and has been practicing in the Bay Area since then.
Dr. Borole is very passionate about dentistry and considers it not as a job but as a combination of art, science and a hobby that is close to her heart. Her team and patients agree with her excellent skills, a caring approach and a soothing bedside manner that makes patients feel very comfortable. She strives to stay at the top of her skills by taking continuing education courses that are way above and beyond than what is mandated or required by the state board. Her accomplishments include completion of Fellowship in Implantology at the California Implant Institute. Currently, she is completing a Mastership in Implantology course at the California Implant Institute.
Dr. Borole is certified to perform Oral Sedation in Adults and is also proficient in full mouth reconstruction and esthetic cases. Her practice philosophy is to treat her patients not only as friends or family, but also how she herself would like to be treated.
Outside of work, Dr. Borole enjoys spending time with her husband, son and daughter. She lives with her family in Fremont, CA. In her free time, she also enjoys cooking, gardening, and traveling.
Dr. Mark Loisel, DDS’s qualifications and experience are second to none. His educational background includes receiving his undergraduate degree at the University of California Los Angeles and his doctorate at the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry. In order to stay current in an ever-changing industry, Dr. Loisel is actively involved in American Academy of Anesthesiology, Academy of General Dentistry, International Congress of Oral Implantology, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and Southern Alameda County Dental Society.
With over 30 years of dental experience, Dr. Loisel finds great pleasure in being a mentor to other dentists. Due to his ability to help others, he has been awarded the Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry (F.A.G.D.), an honor that only the top 10% of all dentists in the United States ever achieve. However, Dr. Loisel’s greatest accomplishment has been his ability to provide patients with the most comfortable dental experience with IV sedation. The educational and special equipment requirements are so stringent that less than 1% of general dentists in California have a permit to perform IV Sedation.
When Dr. Loisel is not spending time with his family, he is actively involved in giving back to the underprivileged. Dr. Loisel’s most recent humanitarian trip was to Africa where he provided dental work to people who would otherwise receive nothing. He also is actively involved in the community as being a part of Dentistry from the heart, a non-profit organization that donates dental work to those who are underprivileged.
