Dr. Bautista

Sonia Bautista DMD - Owner/Doctor

Dr. Sonia Bautista acquired Arcata Dental Office in 2001 with the vision of creating a dental practice that treats every patient with dignity and first-rate care. In 2011, she relocated to Eureka. Dr. Bautista continues to serve Humboldt County residents as well as adjacent counties. Our dental assistants and office staff are highly-trained and exceptionally friendly. We understand that for many, visiting a dentist can be a stressful (even dreadful) experience. Our comfortable surroundings and compassionate professionals will ease your fears. Please consider us for your dental needs.

Dr. Bautista earned her Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree from the University of the East at age 22. While working and training at several southern California hospitals, she successfully passed her California State Board in 1989. She practiced initially as an Associate Dentist in Irvine, CA while operating a small private practice of her own.  From 1996-1999 she acted as a California Certified Quality Assurance Auditor for several different insurance companies. She also managed multiple offices for two large dental companies in the southern Los Angeles basin for several years. After a 2-year comprehensive search across the state for a practice and region that provided the perfect blend of professional and personal attributes, she decided on the Arcata/Eureka community. She has been here since and remains committed to her fellow "NORCALIANS" here in Humboldt County and outlying areas.

Dr. Bautista has performed more than 65,000 basic to major procedures on more than 9,500 patients since opening her doors here in Arcata in 2001.  She is a member of the ADA, CDA, AGD, and is certified to perform Conscious Oral Sedation Dentistry.  Dr. Bautista performs a wide range of general dentistry procedures to include endodontics, prosthodontics, periodontics, restorations, and oral surgery. She has previously held the positions of Vice President and President for the Humboldt-Del Norte Dental Society in 2013 and 2014, respectively. She enjoys gardening, varying cuisine, travel, and watching movies in her spare time.
