We are pleased to welcome Dr. Sara Gomez to Grand Parkway Smiles. Dr. Sara Gomez obtained her Doctor of Dental Medicine from Tufts University in Boston, where she was a recipient of the Tufts Merit Scholarship and received recognition on the Dean’s Honor Roll for her performance on the National Board Dental Examination.
She moved to Houston and completed a post-doctoral program receiving a Certificate in General Practice Residency from Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center.
Dr. Gomez is a board-eligible candidate of American Board of Endodontics. She received her Certificate in Endodontics from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry.
As an endodontic resident, she won an award for her published dental research involving trauma and dental cell survival.
Her interest in general dentistry and endodontics began with an emergency visit to the dental office. She was so grateful to her dentist for alleviating her dental pain by performing a root canal therapy that she decided to pursue a profession in dentistry.
As she shadowed her general dentist and volunteered in many dental outreach programs, she became increasingly excited about the path that she had chosen. Having had a root canal herself, she understands what her patients anticipate and experience. This allows her to provide the highest standard of professional care in a friendly and comfortable environment.
The elements Dr. Gomez enjoys most of her endodontic work are the reward of helping people get out of pain as well as the technical aspects of this part of dentistry.
Her most memorable experiences working in dentistry are her humanitarian dental mission trip to an orphanage in Peru, and working in the Emergency Dental Clinic at Tufts School of Dental Medicine.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling and working on craft projects.
