Lora Foster Rode, DDS | Pediatric Dentist

Hello, I’m Dr. Lora. I grew up in Fair Oaks and then went to school in San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles and Cincinnati. I am so happy to be back and reconnect with people in the Sacramento area. Many of my patients are children of my friends from high school or college and I feel so special to be able to give them healthy, happy smiles. My husband and I have two beautiful kids, Elyse and Andrew and two furry kids, our King Charles Cavalier Spaniels, Luke and Leia.

I am a Board Certified Pediatric Specialist and certified in CPR.

1.) What is the best part about working at RPD?

Dress up days! I get to laugh, have fun and act silly while I remove sugar bugs from teeth.

Molar

3.) What is the thing you miss most about being a kid?

Going on field trips at school.

4.) What do you know how to do that you can teach others?

I can play the flute and piccolo and played in band from 4th grade through my first year of college.

5.) If you could be a superhero, what would your name and superpower be?

Madame Flossy – I can chase away sugar bugs with my minty floss and dazzling white smile

6.) If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

My dog Leia because she sleeps on a tempurpedic pillow on our bed, she lays on her back and snores.

7.) What is the most awesome thing you’ve ever seen?

In 2006 I went to Malawi, Africa on a dental mission trip for 3 weeks. Most of my patients had never seen a dentist before and many were children. The kids wore their very best cloths and took their shoes off before getting in the dental chair, I never asked them to do that! They sat so still and were so cooperative while I fixed their teeth. They wouldn’t move, even if a fly was buzzing around and landing on them. We communicated through a translator and they were so thankful and respectful, saying, “I am so much healthier now that you fixed my teeth,” with a big smile on their face.
