Dr. Klara Nazaryan Efner, D.D.S., has joined our practice as of September 2019.
Dr. Efner is a 2016 graduate of University of the Pacific, A.Dugoni school of Dentistry in San Francisco. She’s been living in Ventura since 2004, after moving here from her home country Armenia, where she acquired her first Dental degree. After a few years of acclimating and staying busy with her young family, she continued her calling to pursue her career in Dentistry, and returned to Dental school to become a licensed practitioner in the US.
Dr. Efner is a compassionate and empathetic practitioner. She takes her patients needs and wishes to heart and strives for continued excellence in achieving patient-centered results. She believes in treating the person as a whole and is well aware of the oral-systemic health connection. She is often complimented on her gentle touch and calming bedside manner. She is an inquisitive life-long learner and enjoys attending continuing education courses and hands-on events to further her education and keep abreast of the developments in her profession. She belongs to numerous local study clubs, where she collaborates with other Dentists in the community, sharing ideas and learning from one another. She is a member of American Dental Association, California Dental Association and Santa Barbara-Ventura County Dental Society where she serves as the Director at Large, representing young graduates.
Dr. Efner enjoys community service and providing care to those in need. During her training in Dental School, she participated in a dental mission trip to Jamaica, where the experience of providing free dental care to the under-served population became a life-changing experience. Since then, she set a goal to participate in such events on regular basis, and has been successfully fulfilling this intention, both locally and abroad.
Dr. Efner has many interests and hobbies. She enjoys nature, yoga and meditation practice, jewelry making, travelling and spending time with friends and her beautiful family.
