At Enchanted Dental Care, we get to know about our patients - their medical histories, their families, and their dental goals. As we build a bond of friendship and trust, it helps us serve your dental needs more effectively. We feel it is important and fair that you know a bit about us, too.
Dr. Arlenita Gomez-Croddy grew up in southern California, but married and moved to northern California to encourage and support her husband as he went to law school and raise a family. She loves her family of dental patients so much that her son thought she loved them more than him when he was little.
Raised in Cerritos, a city south of Los Angeles , she stayed local for college. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry degree from UCLA. She ventured a little further away from home and received her degree in 1990 after completing the dental program at University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco. Part of her post-graduate experience came from practicing with her father and brother in the family practice in Artesia. Within a few short years, Dr. Gomez- Croddy moved to the Sacramento area, purchased and established her practice in Carmichael. Enchanted Dental Care has been serving patients since 1997.
Dr. Gomez-Croddy stays abreast of cutting-edge dental technologies and techniques through activity in the Sacramento District Dental Society. She is also a member of several other prestigious dental organizations. She stays up to date with the latest dental implants, general dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry advancements by investing hundreds of hours in continuing education courses each year.
Dr. Gomez-Croddy provides care with the goal of helping her patients keep their natural teeth for as long as possible, hopefully for life! This does not merely mean that natural teeth are present, but that they look good, feel good, and function well because of excellent care.
Patients visit Dr. Gomez-Croddy for general dental needs as well as for cosmetic dentistry treatments, sleep apnea treatment, sedation dentistry, dental implants, TMJ treatment, Invisalign, root canal therapy, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and much more.
