It gives me great pride and pleasure to introduce to you Dr. Raion (“pronounced Ryan”) Sabo, DDS. After practicing here in Rohnert Park for over 20 years, the time has come to add another doctor to our team at Sonoma Smiles. I am not leaving the practice but rather, bringing in an additional doctor who can service all our patients alongside me. Dr. Sabo is a very special and exciting addition to our team. He is a specialist in advanced prosthodontics, an ADA recognized specialty requiring three years of additional training that is focused on complex cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. Dr. Sabo’s specialized expertise will further our efforts to provide our patients at Sonoma Smiles with state of the art, high-quality dental care. Many of you have had the chance to meet Dr. Sabo already. Here is a brief introduction to Dr. Sabo:
Dr. Raion Sabo is a board-eligible prosthodontist who specializes in complex oral rehabilitations involving dental implants, crowns, bridges, veneers and fixed and removable dental prostheses. Dr. Sabo is a native of South Lake Tahoe, California and relocated to the SF Bay Area to attend UC Berkeley. Dr. Sabo earned his Bachelor of Arts in Integrative Biology from UC Berkeley while also competing for the NCAA Division 1 Cal Men’s Gymnastics Team. Dr. Sabo earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from UCSF School of Dentistry where his excellence in leadership, clinical dentistry, and academics was rewarded with numerous awards such as the American Student Dental Association Award of Excellence, the Hanau Best of The Best in Prosthodontics Award and induction into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. His passion for esthetics, complex reconstructions, and evidence-based dentistry led him to an additional 3-years of post-graduate training in Prosthodontics at West Los Angeles Veterans Affairs Medical Center. During his residency at the West Los Angeles VAMC, he served as the Chief Prosthodontics Resident and taught at UCLA School of Dentistry. Dr. Sabo strives to provide innovative, exceptional-quality dental care while maintaining a compassionate and patient-centered focus. He prides himself in providing treatment that not only addresses current oral health problems but also provides predictable long-term solutions that are maintainable, comfortable and functional. When Dr. Sabo is not creating beautiful smiles, he enjoys traveling, exploring new restaurants, visiting Disney theme parks, spending time with his family and supporting his favorite bay area sports teams.
We are very fortunate to have such a highly trained expert join our office to help with all of the general dentistry and advanced treatments that we offer. Dr. Sabo and I have quite a bit in common having both completed our dental degrees at UCSF and receiving advanced training in complex reconstructive dental care. Many of you know that my youngest son Riley, is also a gymnast and is now competing for the University of Washington Men’s Team. So, I know from personal experience with Riley, the dedication that it takes to balance academic excellence and competing in division 1 college gymnastics. You can rest assured that with Dr. Sabo and I your dental care will be the very best quality possible. You may have also noticed some other new faces to our office both chairside and at the front desk. We are constantly building our team and doing everything possible to provide a quality, patient centered experience. Our physical office has also been updated with state-of-the-art equipment for infection control and patient safety in light of the current COVID pandemic.
I will always remain available to answer any of your questions or concerns for our patients and residents of Rohnert Park. 2020 while very challenging for everyone can only make us stronger if we all stick together and respect each other!
Yours in the interest of excellent dental health.
Dr. Wayne Sutton
