Meet The Doctor

Dr. Morarasu

Dr. Morarasu was born and raised in Romania. Ukiah is his new home, after living in the Bay Area where he practiced Periodontics. Dr. Morarasu completed a residency in Advance Periodontics at the University of Colorado where he received his Certificate in Periodontology as well as his Master in the Science of Dentistry. His master thesis focused on the use of Cone Beam technology for Dental Diagnosis. He also received additional training in Implant Dentistry with Dr. Carl Misch. Dr Misch is considered a world wide expert in Implantology. Dr. Morarasu is very fortunate to be trained by him.

Dr. Morarasu practiced General Dentistry for five years in Minneapolis before starting his Graduate Program at the University of Colorado. He also taught at the University of Minnesota as an Adjunct Clinical Professor for the Department of Emergency and Comprehensive Care. He completed another residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Minnesota. With a Doctor in Dental Surgery degree and 15 years experience in the dental field he proudly says that many roles played in the dental world help him to be a better practitioner: treatment coordinator, register dental assistant, manager, general dentist, educator and periodontist. Having been a general dentist gives Dr. Morarasu greater insight into the outcomes the general dentist is attempting to achieve for the patients.

He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, an exceptional status that only 2,200 periodontists have achieved since 1939. He is a long standing member of American Academy of Periodontology and American Dental Association.

Away from the practice George enjoys traveling, reading a good book, hiking, fishing and cooking some of the Mediterranean dishes. Two of his favorite inspirational quotes:

"Football is a team game. So is life." -Joe Namath

"If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door." -Milton Berle
