About the Team

Dr. Evan Kania, D.M.D.

Dr. Kania comes from a long line of dentists, beginning with his grandfather and extending to many uncles and cousins. Dentistry definitely runs in the family and Dr. Kania knew from the time he was 12 years old that he wanted to be a dentist like his grandpa. He has learned a lot from his family members about the art and science of dentistry, but more importantly, he has learned how to treat patients. Dr. Kania adamantly believes in giving each and every patient the best dentistry possible, based on their specific wants and needs. Dr. Kania prefers a team approach, with each patient in control of his or her specific treatment.

Dr. Kania was born and raised in Redlands, California and grew up as a middle child, with an older sister and a younger brother. Following high school, Dr. Kania attended California State University, Fullerton and majored in Biological Science with an emphasis in Cell and Developmental Biology. He graduated Summa Cum Laude and received numerous awards. He continued his education at Oregon Health and Science University, School of Dentistry in Portland, Oregon, where he excelled both clinically and academically. Being a Southern California kid, the clouds and rain did not suit Dr. Kania, and he knew he needed to return to a warmer climate. To be nearer to family, he and his wife, Liz, decided to move to the Sacramento area to raise their family and begin his career. After years of practicing and setting down roots in the community, Dr. Kania decided to open his own practice here in Auburn.
Dr. Kania and his wife are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters, Paige and Tinley. Although dentistry and his family take up most of his time, he does try to find time to enjoy his hobbies of biking, running and, of course, watching some TV at the end of a long day.

Dr. Kania truly enjoys meeting and getting to know his patients and he looks forward to establishing great patient relationships that will last for years to come.
