NW Reno, Sparks, Fernley, NV & Truckee, CA Dentist



Dr. George Zatarain was born and raised in Reno. He received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Nevada, Reno . He attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree in 1991.

Dr. Z enjoys hiking, biking and music. Many years he has traversed the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim in one day, including one year when he hiked Rim to Rim to Rim. Week long biking trips have taken him through northern California, Washington and Oregon. Ask Dr. Z about his dirt bike and favorite off road trips. Year round outdoor activities such as skiing, fishing, camping and travel are also part of Dr. Z’s life outside of the dental office.

"My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Z for years now, and we always get the best care. Everyone from the front desk to the hygienists to Dr. Z himself are so kind and thoughtful. We don't have dental in our insurance plans, and they price things in a way that's truly affordable, even without insurance. I've had dentists in the past who always suggested extra work at nearly every appointment, but with Dr. Z I'm 100% confident that he would only do work that was necessary and in my best interests. He's also just so nice. I get really nervous in any medical setting, and he is always really considerate of that and is obviously working really hard not to hurt me. I always leave feeling like I've been taken care of by experts who care about me." Zoe

Dr. Z and his staff assist every patient to reach a basic, pain-free, disease-free level of health. Overarching the practice of dentistry is the goal to provide outstanding customer service.
