“Love what you do and you will never work a day in your life," my parents would constantly remind me. And here I am, doing just that! I'm Dr. Elizabeth Alikpala, DMD, a general dentist who is proud to be a key team member of Esthetic Partners Dental Group, with locations in Ontario, Pico Rivera, and Cerritos, California.
I joined the team in providing you with quality dental services for the whole family. My mission is of service. Service to God, my family, friends and the community around me. With that in mind, I strive to provide my patients with a high standard of care in the sensitive dental environment; I treat all my patients the way I would like to be treated -- with kindness, patience and competence. I am a strong advocate of partnering with my patients to achieve overall well-being, beginning with sound, and healthy oral health.
When my schedules permit me the privilege, I am an active volunteer in CDA Cares, a program sponsored by the California Dental Association, which provides dental services to thousands of California residents at no charge. When possible, I also volunteer with Remote Area Medical (RAM), a major nonprofit provider of mobile medical and dental clinics throughout the US and abroad.
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of the Philippines School of Dentistry and completed post-graduate studies at the University of Michigan, School of Dentistry. I am fluent in Filipino, English and have a conversational command of Indonesian and Spanish.
When not doing dentistry, I find fulfillment in being a catechist at my parish, or I dabble in gardening to put my green thumb to use. When time permits, I enjoy escaping my routine by seeking out new adventures by traveling with my two favorite guys--my hubby and son!
I look forward to working with you and your family soon!
