Dr. Maria Lourdes C. Morato was born and raised in the Philippines. She completed her dental degree from the nation's top dental school, the University of the Philippines. She moved to the United States in 1992 when she married her husband, Ramon C. Morato.
Dr. Morato started her dental office in Anaheim on July 20, 2005. She wanted to create a "listening, caring and gentle" dental practice for the entire family. She treats her patients as her valued friends.
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Morato is a dedicated wife and a mother to her two college sons, Marlo and Marty. She loves to travel and dance. Her current endeavor, though, is training for her first run, Disney's Tinker Bell Half Marathon.
