    To optimize database queries in Entity Framework, use lazy loading judiciously and prefer eager loading for related data. Utilize projection queries to select only necessary fields. Write efficient LINQ queries, avoid N+1 query problems, and consider using raw SQL for complex queries. Index database columns properly and review generated SQL queries for performance bottlenecks.
