Meet Dr. Navarro

Dr Alejandra Navarro, Orthodontist at Alameda Orthodontics

Alejandra Navarro, D.D.S., M.S.


Dr. Navarro grew up hearing from her father, also an orthodontist, about the satisfaction he received from creating beautiful smiles in her hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico, where Dr. Navarro also initially practiced as an orthodontist. Dr. Navarro fell in love with the Bay Area while completing an Orthodontics Fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Following her appointment as Adjunct Instructor at the UCSF Department of Orthodontics, Dr. Navarro chose to pursue full United States licensure, and completed a DDS, an orthodontics residency, and a Master of Science in Oral and Craniofacial Science at UCSF.
Prior to her UCSF training, Dr. Navarro had also completed a DDS, an orthodontics residency, and a Master of Science Degree in Oral Biology, all at the University of Guadalajara. In other words, Dr. Navarro is an orthodontist "twice trained!"

Dr. Navarro has won numerous awards and has completed several scientific projects and publications. During dental school at UCSF, Dr. Navarro was recipient of the Global Oral Health Fellowship and traveled to Peru to complete a study about malocclusion in an indigenous population in a remote island. She has published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and has conducted research on topics including progressive condylar resorption, airways, and malocclusion. She is currently a member of the Volunteer Clinical Faculty at UCSF. Even with her extensive academic and research experience, Dr. Navarro's first true passion is creating beautiful smiles for her patients!

Dr. Navarro loves hiking and travel with her husband, who is a child and adolescent psychiatrist. She also dances flamenco! Dr. Navarro and her husband are thrilled to have recently welcomed their baby daughter into the world and enjoy watching her develop and grow.
