About Dr. Monica Armendariz

Dr. Monica Armendariz was born and raised in Turlock, CA. She completed her DDS degree at the University of California San Francisco. She fell in love with San Francisco during her four years of school and decided she wanted to stay and continue seeing patients in this beautiful city. As a child, Dr. Armendariz thought she was going to be a fashion designer, but one summer everything changed after a little incident involving her little sister and a croquet ball. When you come in for a visit, ask her about the magic she experienced as an 11 year old with her dentist restoring her chipped front tooth. It’s quite a story! What she loves most about dentistry is being able to communicate with the patient about the care they need. “I can’t explain the joy I get from educating my patients about their oral health. My favorite part of the day is hearing a patient say 'Wow, I’ve never had a dentist explain something like this to me’. It makes me excited to come in to work everyday, because I know there is someone's life I will make a difference in”-Dr. Armendariz.

Monica meant well, but she kept sharing horror stories with me about other pregnant women, like how a relative of hers lost a tooth after each baby due to pregnancy related issues. It was terrifying. Also, her cleaning was the most aggressive and painful I have ever experienced. Hours later I still can chew with out pain just from a cleaning. I normally don’t mind going to the dentist, but this visit made me weary of the next.
