Dr. Broneil Ishaya

Dr. Broneil Ishaya is a general dentist. He graduated from CSU Stanislaus with Cum Laude in Biology and further pursued his education at one of the top rated dental schools, UC San Francisco. Once completing his doctorate, he found it most fitting to travel back to Turlock and serve his community at large. Dr. Ishaya is comfortable with providing most dental treatments, including but not limited to, restoration of decayed teeth or implants, root canals, extractions including wisdom teeth, veneers and esthetics work, and orthodontic treatment.

As a child. Dr. Ishaya would work with his father, a well-established dental laboratory in the central valley. At the age of 14, he would fabricate dental prosthesis, create night guards, and much more for our office and many other offices in the valley. Once he had a chance, we would find him in our office looking to shadow the doctors and eager to learn more about dentistry. In fall of 2020, Dr. Ishaya officially became part of the TFD family.

In his spare time he enjoys hiking, snowboarding, playing soccer, and spending lots of time with his family. He and his lovely wife. Dr. Tamara Sada, are expecting their first child in 2023. He is very excited to be part of the TFD family and building more relationship with people in this community we call home.
