Brandon Cera, DDS
Born and raised outside of Dayton, Ohio, Dr. Brandon Cera attended Ohio State University and obtained both a bachelor’s degree in biology and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. It was there that he also met and married his wife, Kaileigh, who is a health care provider here in Santa Fe as well.
Dr. Cera and his wife are avid hikers, campers, skiers, fishermen and more, which means that you will often find them out and about with their dogs, enjoying the beautiful geography that Santa Fe has to offer. They are thrilled to call their favorite vacation destination their home!
Over the years, research has exploded with the realization that there is a direct link between the state of a person’s oral health and their overall systemic health. Dr. Cera is committed to providing optimal oral and overall healthcare, and he is dedicated to building life-long patient relationships while doing so. He is passionate about serving the needs of his patients, his staff and the surrounding community. He strives to keep a well-managed and highly trained staff that can further assist our patients with any and all facets of dentistry, including discussing financial options to help pay for necessary treatment.
Dr. Cera also spends a great deal of his time giving back to his community. He volunteers at the Villa Therese Catholic Church dental clinic, a non-profit organization that helps to provide dental care for the underserved citizens of Santa Fe. He also participates in the annual New Mexico Missions of Mercy, during which hundreds of dental providers from across the state unite to provide free dental care to anyone in need. Dr. Cera also donates his time and office to the New Mexico Donated Dental Services (DDS) program, where he provides free dental care for selected medically compromised patients.
“There is nothing more gratifying than providing the appropriate care and attention the patients and community deserve.” -Dr. Brandon Cera
