Dr. Ashleigh Areias
Dr. Areias provides outstanding dental care to patients at our Total Health Dental Care Dana Street Office in Berkeley. She’s certified to provide Invisalign and is a proud member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the American Association for Women Dentists, where she is the director of social events and health awareness.
Dr. Areias is a native central Californian from Los Banos, and her passion for health and dentistry flourished as an undergraduate at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She served as the vice president of the UCSB Pre-Dental Organization and as the health professions officer of the pre-health academic sorority Rho Psi Eta. Dr. Areias traveled with UCSB Medlife to assist mobile clinics in Lima, Peru, and somehow found the time to complete her Bachelor of Science in Cell and Developmental Biology with an Academic Excellence Award.
After her undergraduate degree, Dr. Areias went on to earn her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry at the University of the Pacific, where she was the Ideal Committee chair for the American Student Dental Association.
Dr. Areias is a trailblazer. She was the first person in her family to not only pursue a health profession but to also attend college. She likes to explore the frontiers of dentistry and designed an efficient and portable dental clinic.
She has gained invaluable experience outside of the office working with people of all ages, from elementary and high school students at the Dugoni Dental Camp to geriatric patients at On Lok, a nonprofit organization that helps seniors live an independent and active life.
