Dr. Basora was born and raised in Northern California and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Small Business/New Ventures from California State University at Hayward. While attending college classes, he had the opportunity to travel and observe in the dental schools at both the Kasturba School of Dentistry in Manipal, India as well as the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Both experiences solidified his desire to pursue a career as a general dentist. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska, graduating in 1996.
Upon graduating from dental school Dr. Basora associated with two dental practices in Plumas County, California and after realizing there was an underserved segment of the local population, he helped to established the dental clinic at Eastern Plumas Health Care in Portola. This experience in hospital dentistry allowed Dr. Basora to provide a broad range of dental services that has proved invaluable in private practice. He updates his training regularly in many areas of modern dentistry, including restorative dentistry, cosmetics, Invisalign and sleep apnea.
Dr. Basora feels the field of dentistry is a great combination of science and art, and that suits his strengths well. He is committed to providing patients with a safe and comfortable environment which allows them to look good, feel healthy, and be confident they are making good decisions about their oral health care. Dr. Basora relishes the interactions he has with his patients and finds great joy in making connections with members of his community.
