It is the greatest privilege to witness a person’s self-confidence grow from something you created and I get to do that every day in orthodontics! Having been through braces myself, I can understand what my patients are going through and it is my goal to make orthodontics a fun, comfortable and enjoyable experience for all those seeking to improve their smile just as it was for me.
As a Texas native, I received my Bachelor of Science (BS) at The University of Texas at Austin and Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) at Baylor College of Dentistry. I moved to Los Angeles to complete my specialty training at the University of Southern California where I received my Certificate in Orthodontics along with a Master of Science in Craniofacial Biology (MS). It was during this time that I fell in love with sunny Southern California and decided to call it home.
I am engaged to my fiancé Nicholas Jung, an anesthesiologist at Kaiser. When not practicing in the health professions, we enjoy going to the beach, traveling, and exploring new restaurants in Los Angeles.
