 Passion for Clinical Excellence and Education.   Dr. Larsen is one of 300 dentists nationwide to be selected as Visiting Faculty at the world renowned Spear Education Center in Scottsdale, Arizona.  She travels there to mentor other dentists and learn the latest techniques in order to provide exceptional care to her patients.  Locally she leads a dental study club of 14 other dentists including orthodontists and periodontists.

Experience and Trust.      You can trust Dr. Larsen to have your best interests in mind.  Since 1992, she has been in private practice in San Diego.  After earning her dental degree (D.M.D.) in 1989 from the Oregon Health Sciences University she came to San Diego to serve in the U.S. Navy.  Her three year assignment at the Naval Training Center (now known as Liberty Station) brought a wealth of experience as thousands of new recruits came through the dental center, each bringing unique dental problems and dental histories from all areas of the country.
