Meet The Doctor Valencia CA

Erik P. Cadra DMD

Dr. Cadra’s passion for dentistry began early in his life. His father was an oral maxillofacial surgeon. Working alongside his dad as a dental assistance Dr. Cadra found he enjoyed it all - the patients, the dentistry and the dental staff. He also had the opportunity to interact with other dentists in the community who loved practicing dentistry. All this solidified his decision to pursue the profession of general dentistry.

Dr. Cadra’s educational career began with undergraduate years at California State University, Chico, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Resort and Lodging Management. Throughout college, Dr. Cadra gained experience in the luxury hospitality industry including properties such as the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Although he greatly enjoyed working in the resort setting, Dr. Cadra had a calling to return to school and pursue a dental career. His postgraduate education includes a Master’s in Biomedical Science from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida and a Doctorate of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. After obtaining his dental degree, Dr. Cadra expanded his clinical training at a residency program through NYU Langone Hospitals and obtained a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. As a resident, Dr. Cadra had the benefit of working with an astute team of doctors serving Boston’s diverse patient population at Fenway’s Community Health Center.

Life outside the office for Dr. Cadra is focused on family, friends, and fitness. Dr. Cadra tries to stay very active, whether it be working out at the gym, surfing, skiing/snowboarding and other outdoor activities. Dr. Cadra enjoys doing these activities with his beautiful wife, Meredith who shares his passion for the outdoors, physical activity, and quality time with family.

From Dr. Cadra:

"I have loved the dental profession from a young age. During my high school years and college breaks, I had the opportunity to work as a surgical assistant in my father's practice and was exposed to dental philanthropy by participating in California Dental Association Cares volunteer events and traveled to Leon, Nicaragua on craniofacial/maxillofacial medical mission trips with my father and a team of his colleagues. I enjoy not only the science and artistic aspect of the dental profession, but the people and relationships you meet and create along the way.

My office welcomes the whole family, from toddlers to great grandparents. I look forward to meeting you! See you soon!"
