Our Office

Dr. Rosa Estrada and her family

Dr. Estrada is a Salinas native who cares about her community and loves creating beautiful smiles! After graduating with honors from Alisal High School, she attended UC Santa Barbara and completed her Bachelors of Science in Microbiology. She obtained her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at UC San Francisco and practiced general dentistry for over 5 years before attending a 3 year orthodontic residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in New York.


Dr. Estrada couldn’t be happier to be back in her hometown and her years of experience will help patients in making confident decisions on their orthodontic needs. Orthodontics is an ever-evolving specialty and Dr. Estrada is committed to being a lifelong student, attending annual continuation courses in order to provide patients with the latest techniques and services available.

Dr. Estrada proudly serves our country as a Major in the California Army National Guard where she aids in the care of our soldiers and their oral health. When Dr. Estrada is not creating beautiful smiles, she loves to be outdoors, hiking, mountain biking and spending time with her family, her husband John, her two kids Amelia and Mateo and two pups, Hughey and Anni. 

Dr. Estrada is a member of:

  • American Association of Orthodontics

  • Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists

  • American Dental Association

  • California Dental Association

  • Monterey Bay Dental Association

The lifetime value of orthodontic treatment is a key investment that has been shown to improve the quality of life of patients. Here at Monarch Orthodontics, we go the extra mile to make sure your needs are heard and met by all members of our team. “Smile and Flourish” is our motto here and like the beautiful Monarch butterfly, we will transition your smile to a smile you can be proud of for a lifetime.
