Meet Dr. Laptalo...
Dr. Laptalo is a general dentist who realized very early in her training that she possessed a special knack for working with children and young patients with special needs.
A third-generation Sacramentan, Dr. Laptalo grew up in Arden Park and attended Country Oaks Preschool, Mariemont Elementary School, Arden Middle School, and Rio Americano High School.
Following her graduation from The Ohio State University on an athletic scholarship for synchronized swimming, Dr. Laptalo became a Registered Dental Hygienist (R.D.H.) at The Forsyth Institute in Boston. She received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, and then returned to California to complete a hospital-based general dentistry residency program at the VA Hospital in San Francisco.
Dr. Laptalo enjoyed practicing as an Associate Dentist in several
pediatric dental offices since her return to Sacramento
and ultimately opened her own practice. She is proud to support the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. She is currently serving on the Board of Directors of the Sacramento District Dental Society, and has served on the Advisory Board to the First 5 Commission
Dr. Laptalo and her husband, Luko, are the proud parents of three beautiful little girls: Emilia, Nikolina and Katarina.
