Gina Burrafato
Patient Care Coordinator

My name is Gina I grew up in Marin and have lived here all my life. I graduated from Sir Francis Drake High School, then attended the College of Marin Dental Assisting Program, where I graduated with my RDA license in 2000. In 2017 I went back to attend Santa Rosa Junior College where I graduated with my Associates Degree in Health Sciences.

I live in Novato with my husband Parker and three amazing kids. My two boys, Riley 17, Cody 13 and my 3 year old daughter Karlie. 

My favorite things to do are, going on road trips to Baja with my husband, watching my boys play football and baseball, doing arts and crafts, and watching movies with my daughter.
