New Dentist, Dr. Sevilla, Joins Little Lake Health Center in Willits


May 2013

Dr. Shamir Sevilla recently joined our Dental Department. He'll be working at both Little Lake and Lakeview Health Centers. He became a dentist because it blended his favorite skills, health science and repairing things.

“I considered medicine, but I really like to use my hands so dentistry seemed like a good choice,” he said. He speaks both English and Spanish fluently, and enjoys educating patients about oral health.

When looking for a place to practice, he hoped to find a clinic with a friendly, well-trained staff in a place where he and his wife would enjoy the community. After graduating from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, he worked at a clinic serving Native American patients,  and later worked for a couple private dental offices. He preferred the community clinic setting and wanted to be in Northern California, so when he found Mendocino Community Health Clinic, it was a perfect fit.

When he’s not “repairing” teeth, he enjoys do-it-yourself home projects, small repairs on cars and outdoor activities.

He is currently accepting new patients . In Willits, call Little Lake Health Center at (707) 456-9600 to schedule an appointment. In Lakeport, call Lakeview Health Center at (707) 263-7725. Patients of all ages are welcome.
