Meet the Dentist

Cheryl Goldasich DDS

 Dr. Cheryl Goldasich began working in the dental field when she was only  fourteen years old as a dental assistant in her fathers, Dr. Robert  Laxineta's office in Torrance, California. Ten years later, Dr.  Goldasich married her husband, John and they had a daughter, Samantha.  After more than fifteen years of working chair-side with her father, Dr.  Goldasich decided to go back to school to become a dentist at the age  of thirty-two. She graduated from the university of Southern California  in 1999 and opened her practice in Torrance in 2001. Dr. Goldasich  provides dental emergency services in Torrance as well as Cosmetic and  General Dentistry.  After the opening of her practice, Dr. Goldasich  decided to return to the University of Southern California as a clinical  faculty in 2007 where she assists dental students with clinical and  patient care. Dr. Goldasich currently lives with her husband in the  South Bay area and enjoys reading, yoga, and vacationing.
