Dr. Lena DeBaz earned her dental degree at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. After her schooling, she was one of select few dentists who were chosen for advanced training and hospital dentistry. She is now the owner and cosmetic and family dentist at Energetic Smile in Brea, California.
She works hard to remain at the cutting edge of new procedures, technologies, and materials available to better serve her patients.
She knows that people don’t like to go to the dentist, and she has always worked hard to make receiving top quality dental work as pleasant an experience as possible. Energetic Smile is a product of that passion.
Her treatment has always been thorough and gentle, with a focus on preventative dentistry to help prevent new problems before they start!
When she’s not helping people smile, you can usually find her hiking, out exploring with her husband, or cheering on her Cleveland sports teams!
