Our Community


Gerald T. Kondo, D.D.S.Since opening up his dental practice over 30 years ago, the Watsonville community has greatly benefited from Dr. Gerry Kondo’s caring nature, generosity and hard work. Gerry has served on numerous non-profit boards, was a founding member of Kokoro no Gakko (School with a Heart—a Japanese cultural summer school youth program) and has served as the presiding board member for the Japanese American Citizens League and the Watsonville Buddhist Temple. His perspective as a leader within Watsonville’s community, coupled with his experience as a dentist, made him the perfect fit for the Pajaro Valley Community Health Trust Board of Directors, where Gerry served for eight years.


Dr. Brooke has been serving on the Japanese American Citizens League board of directors since 2010. She recently joined the Pajaro Valley Community Health Trust Board of Directors, where she will help with the Health Trust’s Oral Health Prevention and Access funding and advocacy programs.
