Meet Dr. Katerina Koleva

My Commitment to Patient Education and Overall Health

I began working with Ascot Family Dental recently last year after moving to the area from San Francisco. I feel that it is my responsibility to inform and educate my patients about their oral health. I listen carefully and encourage open communication so I can best meet their dental needs. I respect the decisions my patients make after I have answered all questions and concerns they may have.

Dentistry is really a people profession. I wouldn't be able to give my patients the care and experience they deserve without the help of every single member of our team. It is a true honor for me to be part of Dr. Parikh's team and have such an amazing group of people ensuring that our patients have a pleasant experience and receive the best care possible.

My favorite part of my job is meeting people from all walks of life and helping them feel comfortable and relaxed during dental visits. I always strive to make my patients laugh at least once during their visit - only then I feel accomplished.

Outside of Work

Dentistry is such a great passion for me that I spend my time doing dentistry related stuff even when I am not in the office. I recently returned from a dental Mission trip in Guatemala and I can hardly wait to do it again. What made the experience even greater is somehow managing to get my husband who has no dental background involved. We are both looking forward to the next opportunity to help people with limited access to care. I am a huge dog lover and I have a little Westie with big attitude at home. Teching him new tricks brings so much joy to my life that I am thinking about a second one.

My Education

I started working in the dental field in 2009 after graduating from the University of Dental Medicine Sofia in my home country Bulgaria. I graduated Dental School twice and am licensed to practice both in Europe (Bulgaria) and in the US. I graduated from the University of the Pacific Arthur Dugoni, San Francisco in 2015. I constantly strive to expand my level of expertise so I can offer my patients high quality comprehensive care.

Professional Memberships

I am currently a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), Sacramento District Dental Association (SDDS), and the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).
