Dr. Kotula, a native of Scotland, earned her Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree from the prestigious University of Glasgow and her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Dentistry.
Dr. Kotula was awarded membership in Omicron Kappa Upsilon (the National Dental Honor Society) for her leadership role as President of the International Dentistry Program at UCSF. She also received recognition for her work in Singapore studying children in dangerous domestic situations.
With over 12 very successful years practicing private dentistry in both Scotland and California, Dr. Kotula has built a wonderful relationship with her patients. She provides the highest quality dental care with the most gentle and caring approach.
