Dr. Korando grew up in the small town of Florence on the coast of Oregon where his father practices dentistry. He attended Pacific Union College near Napa Valley, and also spent a year in Spain attending college where he became fluent in Spanish. During his college years he met his wife Sarah who grew up in Sonora. She is now an Emergency Department physician at Sonora Regional Medical Center.
Dr. Korando graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2009, then completed a two year residency in Dental Anesthesiology. He rotated between the County Hospital in Riverside, the Level 1 Trauma Center at Loma Linda University Medical Center, and the Dental Surgery Center at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. He has provided anesthesia for dental and medical procedures of all kinds, including rotations in internal medicine and cardiology.
Dr. Korando practices both General Dentistry and is a Board Certified Dental Anesthesiologist. He has worked with us at Twain Harte Family Dental Care for several years providing dental anesthesia for our patients that have dental anxiety and need sedation for dental treatment. We are excited to be able to have the opportunity to bring such a well qualified dentist to Twain Harte to help serve our patients. We are thrilled to have him as part of our team full time, providing general dentistry as well as sedation services.
While in dental school, Dr. Korando was able to spend some of his time volunteering, both locally and abroad in Loreto, Mexico. He plans to continue volunteering both here in Tuolumne County and overseas to help those in underserved areas. Dr. Korando and his wife have two young children. They are excited to live in the Sonora/Twain Harte area. They truly love the outdoors and are grateful to live in an area where they can get out into nature and enjoy the many activities that Tuolumne County has to offer.
