Dr. Brett B. Melgosa was born and raised in Merced,
California. Being the first in his immediate family to attend college, he
received Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration, BiologicalScience, and
Chemistry from CSU Stanislaus in Turlock, CA. He graduated among the top of his class in all fields.
After working 5 years as an Officer
for the Merced County Probation Department, Dr. Melgosa pursued his interest in
the health field. He received his
Doctorate in Dental Medicine from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA,
graduating with high honors (Magna Cum Laude). Following graduation he attended the prestigious California Implant Institute in San Diego, CA where he found a passion for implants. Most recently he became the second youngest member in history of the International Academy of Dental Implantology where he received his training from renown Harvard Implantologist Dr. Sam Lee.
He specializes in all facets of
dentistry including, but not limited to, implants, oral surgery, dentures, root
canals, CAD CAM dentistry, adult and children's dentistry, and TMJ therapy. He is an ongoing member of the California Dental Association, American Dental Association, and the Stanislaus Dental Society.
For Dr. Melgosa, cosmetic and family
dentistry is both a passion and an art form. He strives for perfection with each patient, and focuses on
designing restorations that look and feel natural. He has made it a personal mission to create an environment
that caters to “dental phobics”, or any apprehensive or fearful patient.
Outside of work, Dr. Melgosa
dedicates himself to helping others with similar upbringings. He takes great pride in motivating
young minds that may limit their potential for success due to a negative
environment. His hobbies are
riding motorcycles, working out, and spending time with friends and family.
