Marcella Dacosta

Dr. Marcela Paulino DaCosta is from Hampton, Iowa and the second oldest of five kids. She is the first in her family to go to college and received her Bachelor’s degree and Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Iowa! After graduating from dental school in 2016, Dr. DaCosta and her husband moved to California but definitely thought Iowa was better so they moved back two years later. In her spare time Dr. DaCosta enjoys traveling, going to the movies and cuddling her two German shorthaired pointers while reading a book (preferably Harry Potter).
