Dr. Andrea Braun comes from a family of dentists. For 30 years she has enjoyed a successful career which spans time spent serving Naval Dental Corps, partnering in group multi-specialty practice and owning a solo private practice in Menlo Park, California.
Dr. Braun has successfully embraced technology early on in her practice using Laser, Cerec, Intra Oral camera and digital radiography. She brings a unique blend of personal insight and “how-to” knowledge to her coaching. Under Dr. Braun’s direction, practices build streamline clinical systems ensuring team members are intelligently trained so that patients’ confidence remains high. Trustworthiness and open honest communication are the cornerstones of her approach with every doctor owner and team member.
Dr. Braun believes that an empowered team is a successful team, and a lifetime of learning is a commitment that health professionals must willingly embrace. She has a personal advantage of “having walked in your shoes”. She mentors and challenges every team member -- clinical to administrative-- personally and professionally to “live” the principal CANI constantly and tirelessly.

She is an adjunct professor with University of Pacific, and loves to teach aspiring dental students at Sonrisas Dental Community Center. She is a Master member of World Clinical Laser Institute and is also a Master swimmer. If there is water or ocean close by, she will not be far away.
