About Dr. Marina
Dr. Marina Mokrushin DDS
The Knowledgeable, Compassionate & Caring Dentist in Sacramento
Dr. Marina Mokrushin grew up in Elk Grove California and dreamed of becoming a dentist ever since she was 9 years old. She graduated from Laguna Creek High School as the class Salutatorian and went on to attend the Univeristy of the Pacific in Stockton for her Biology major in the 3+3 Dental Program. Directly thereafter, Dr. Marina attended the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, where she was part of the Tau Kappa Omega Honors Society and graduated with honors in 2006.
While in dental school, she took additional initiative to participate in Craniofacial Research with Dr. Marie Tolarova – where she studied genetics of cleft lip and palate children and their unaffected siblings. Dr. Marina Mokrushin was also interested in cosmetic dentistry and received a Clinic Excellence award in cosmetic dentistry while at dental school.
Shortly after graduating, Dr. Marina Mokrushin had the privilege to work with children in pediatric group practice for almost 10 years. While working with children, she received her sedation license and expanded her knowledge of child psychology through practice and continued education.
Dr. Marina started a family and had two little girls of her own. She decided to postpone opening her own practice to have more time with her two growing daughters. She switched to practicing adult dentistry and continued her education to become proficient in implant placement and surgery.
Dr. Marina is a strong believer in continuing education and is constantly looking for innovations in medicine and dentistry that can help her become a better doctor and clinician. Once she became introduced to holistic (whole body) treatment and healing, Dr. Marina became amazed at how much bigger the role of oral health really is in terms of the overall health of the body. She has since dedicated herself to Holistic Dentistry.
Dr. Marina became certified in Ozone Therapy and Zirconia Implant placement. She received training from and shadowed some of the best holistic dentists worldwide. Dr. Marina has also invested herself into the MOST advanced laser technology currently available. She has finally realized her calling – she decided to bring the healthiest and most researched dental care possible to her patients.
Dr. Marina is HERE to bring you the healthiest, most NATURAL and SAFEST dental care possible.
