Dr. Lauren Yasuda Rainey is passionate about caring for people first – and helping her patients maintain optimal oral health through all phases of life. She received her bachelor’s degree from Wellesley College and then pursued her dental degree and graduated with high honors from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Dr. Rainey has served on the school Ethics Committee and was recognized by the San Francisco Dental Society for Excellence in Ethical Conduct. She then completed a general practice residency with a focus on hospital-based dentistry at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and Tufts Medical Center in Boston. At Tufts, she became skilled in managing dental emergencies, treating medically compromised patients and persons with special needs. After moving back to the Bay Area, she began teaching first and third year dental students at the Dugoni School of Dentistry.
In her decade of treating patients, she has become an advocate for minimally invasive dental techniques, utilizing technology to diagnose and treat disease, and treating oral health as a component of overall health. Dr. Rainey and her team are committed to community involvement and have volunteered providing dental services with the California Dental Association and the Berkeley Free Clinic. In addition to continuing education regularly with a local East Bay Spear Study club, she has completed anterior and posterior certification in the Bioclear Method at the Bioclear Learning Center in Tacoma, WA.
