Celebrating Over 30 Years

Drs. Lauro Jr. and Elizabeth Mora are one of the first dentists to set up their practice in Hercules, California. Since 1983, they have been providing quality dental care for the growing Hercules community and opened a second practice in Fairfield, Californa in 1989.

To this day, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of their first patients come in for routine visits!

It's a Family Affair

When Dr. Lauro Jr. (Dr. Mora) isn't working on patients you could find him working on crossword puzzles and listening to music incessantly. His type of music includes the 60's, 70's, Jazz, and Hawaiian music.

This car hobbyist enjoys reviewing cars online and maximizing quality time with friends and family, especially with the grandkids.

Dr. Elizabeth (Dr. Liz) also enjoys maximizing her family time, cooking meals, and especially reading to her grandkids at playtime.

When time permits she loves to catch up on her TLC shows or an action-adventure movie on the big screen or at home on Netflix. She loves her family, Chief the Shiba Inu, and her Golden State Warriors!

Truly a Family Practice

Dr. Laurel Mora Santos (Dr. Laurel) enjoys soaking up all of the beauty and fun things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area including trying out new restaurants.

Family outings scouting for restaurants of the kid-friendly variety have also proven to be a hit with her growing family, particularly when they can order from a good desert menu to compliment the dessert wine, shared by Dr. Laurel and her husband.

In his spare time, Dr. Lauro III (Dr. Lauro) enjoys rooting for the Golden State Warriors and strength training, which is critical as Dr. Lauro takes part in competitive mixed martial arts on the mat and tackles ninja warrior obstacle courses.

Dr. Lauro has an eye for art, particularly in paint and photography, and an ear for music - but it has to have a good melody and beat! One of Dr. Lauro's goals in dentistry is to make going to the dentist less terrifying and even fun.


U.P. and U.O.P.

Dr. Mora and Dr. Liz began their dental careers as classmates in the University of the Philippines in 1973. They married and worked in Southern California and in the bay area for a short time before opening their first office in Hercules.

Both Dr. Laurel and Dr. Lauro are graduates of the University of the Pacific, San Francisco. As students of the University of the Pacific, both Dr. Laurel and Dr. Lauro participated in Dental Health Missions in impoverished areas of the Philippines, and to this day they continue that work of providing the much needed dental care for our underprivileged brothers & sisters in their community and abroad.

Together, our family practice looks forward to sharing new techniques & technology to help improve your oral health!
