She received her B.S. degree from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2003 and then received her Doctoral degree from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, CO in 2007. Upon graduation in May of 2007, Dr. Andrea joined Dr. Scott Leinassarâ€™s family practice in Smith Valley, NV. Dr. Andrea has been a part of the family practice since her graduation from Smith Valley High School in 1998 where she was employed as a dental assistant during summer and Christmas breaks from her undergraduate studies at the University of Nevada. This is where Dr. Andrea made the decision to pursue a career in dentistry after 5 years in which Dr. Scott Leinassar was proud to be her mentor. It was always a goal for Dr. Scott and wife Marianne to take a younger person under their wing and introduce them to dentistry. They have always thought it important to provide access to care for this community, and with the addition of Dr. Andrea there will be more longevity for the family practice and access for dental health care. Dr. Andrea became the daughter-in-law to Dr. Scott Leinassar and his wife Marianne after marrying their son Kristofor in August of 2008. Three years later in August of 2011 Dr. Andrea and her husband welcomed their first child to the family, a daughter, Aubrey Irene Leinassar. Their second child, a son, Jeremy Alan Leinassar, joined the family July 2014. Dr. Andrea and her husband are enjoying being proud parents and Aubrey is filling her role very well as a big sister. In her personal time Dr. Andrea enjoys spending time with family, being mother of two wonderful children, and if time permits she would love to take up some old favorites such as playing softball, snowboarding, camping, and golfing.
