Meet Dr. Chona Lardizabal

I love being a dentist. Every day, I feel rewarded to have made a difference in my patients' lives. After more than 16 years working in the field, I still genuinely enjoy what I do. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and each of the friendships that I've built with my patients and their families is one in a million! It has always been my focus to make each patient feel at home when they come to me for treatment, and I work hard to give my patients the attention they deserve.


My education in dentistry has provided me with a strong foundation of knowledge and experience. Before becoming a dentist, I received the following degrees:

  • Bachelor of Science Degree, Microbiology – University of the Philippines
  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of the Philippines
  • Advanced Restorative Courses – University of California Los Angeles/University of the Pacific

Continuing Education

By participating in continuing education courses throughout the year, I am able to stay current with the latest technology and dental treatments. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options and better results. I am a member of several professional associations, including:

  • American Dental Association
  • California Dental Association
  • Southern Alameda County Dental Society 
  • UP Alumni Association

Commitment to the Community and My Family

I am blessed to be part of such a wonderful community, and I believe strongly in giving back to those who have given so much to me over the years. For many years, I have been providing dental services to under-privileged families. East Bay is a great community, filled with diversity, and I enjoy getting to know people of various backgrounds and cultures.

Even when I am away from the practice, I am still surrounded by happy, bright smiles! I enjoy spending most of my free time with my wonderful family. We like traveling and learning through experience. I also enjoy cooking, dining out, and shopping. I hope you and your family will come to meet us soon!
