Ernie Lavorini, DDS

Dentist located in Oakland, CA

About Dr. Lavorini

Ernie Lavorini, DDS, of Total Health Dental Care in Piedmont and Old Oakland, Oakland, California, graduated cum laude from the University of California at San Francisco in 1973. After working for a dentist in Berkeley, he opened his own practice on 17th street in Oakland.

Since the time he began practicing, he has volunteered his time as a dentist at the Berkeley free clinic. For 30 years, he was one of the few providers that accepted Denti-Cal patients when California provided dental care for residents.

Most recently he has won an “Alameda County Public Health Department Community Partner Award” award for voluntarily providing dental care at no cost for the homeless in the last 7 years. As a reflection of how much he enjoys his work, two of his children have become dentists and even practice with him. Last but not least, he loves to ski and tell great jokes!
