Dentistry is a family affair at Pomerado Dental. Not only are we a husband and wife dental team, but our entire office works together to give you the same kind of treatment and care we would give our own family – the very best. You can learn more about us by reading below.
Mark E. Salamy, DDS
Dr. Salamy is a native San Diegan. He grew up in Allied Gardens, near San Diego State, and attended Patrick Henry High School. After graduating from high school, Dr. Salamy received an undergraduate degree from U.C. Berkeley, and then attended the U.C.L.A. School of Dentistry. Dr. Salamy then returned to the beautiful San Diego/Poway area and formed what eventually became Pomerado Dental.
Lauren A. Snyder, DDS
Dr. Snyder grew up in the West Hills area of Los Angeles. After graduating from high school, she attended U.C. Berkeley, and then the UCLA School of Dentistry. She also completed a one year residency at the Martinez VA Outpatient Clinic.
The doctors both grew up in southern California, both went to Cal for their undergraduate studies, and both went to UCLA for dental school. Dr. Snyder moved to San Diego after her General Practice Residency in Martinez. The doctors then married and formed Pomerado Dental.
Both dentists are members of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Diego County Dental Society. Both have received extra training in cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, and the NTI-tss headache prevention device.
Outside of the office, Dr. Salamy and Dr. Snyder enjoy spending time with their three sons and staying involved with the Poway community. You will find some of their favorite local establishments in the Community News section of the website.
Matthew Osmak, DDS
Dr. Osmak graduated from the University of Detroit-Mercy School of Dentistry in 1985, after completing his undergraduate studies at Michigan State University. He recently completed a 21-year career as a dental officer in the United States Navy and now makes San Diego his home. Dr. Osmak joined Pomerado Dental in 2006.
He enjoys all phases of general practice and strives to make your dental visits relaxing, pain free, and often humorous. He has been married to his wife Karen for over 25 years and they have three lovely children, Gary, Erin (both graduates of Poway High School) and Brandon.
