" My vision is a practice where each patient achieves absolute health and dental stability without the need for dental intervention for their lifetime. Given new understanding about the cause of dental disease and techniques for prevention, this is now more achievable than ever. "

Dr. Brown has been practicing dentistry in the bay area since 2003. In 2009, she began her practice in Atherton and in 2014, she joined Dr. Leary to practice in Menlo Park. With a strong background in preventive strategies and wellness, Dr. Brown strives to help each patient achieve health and wellbeing. Dr. Brown is trained in LASERs, dental sleep medicine, digital photography, Oral Bioesthetics, and full mouth rehabilitation. She has trained with the nation’s leaders in dental education in her pursuit to bring her patients the best that dentistry has to offer.



" It's gratifying when people put their trust in me, and eventually reach a level of health, comfort, and wellbeing that exceeds their expectations- every time they smile, whenever they laugh or tell a story, and whenever they enjoy a meal I feel enriched in their quality of life. "

Since 1981, Dr. Leary has practiced dentistry in Menlo Park with an emphasis on wellness, prevention, and complex adult dental rehabilitation. With his unique expertise, he can offer his patients treatment and services for occlusion/bite disorders, TMJ (jaw joint) disorders, sedation techniques, cosmetic and advanced restorative dentistry, and dental implants.
