Why Did You Become a Dentist?
While growing up, Dr. K was always surrounded by healthcare workers in her family. Her dad is a physician, and she also loved visiting her childhood dentist. He would explain all of the procedures and tools very clearly to her during treatments. She was passionate about art as well, and over time, it became clear that the dental field was the best combination of art and science available. It additionally had the important element of interacting directly with people regularly – for her, that sounded much better than sitting behind a computer all day! Years later, she’s still entirely confident that it was the best choice for her.
Where Did You
Dr. K pursued her dental doctorate at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. She graduated with TKO (Tau Kappa Omega Honor Society) honors. Over the years, she’s also pursued advanced education in a number of specialties, including Invisalign® Clear Braces and Fastbraces®.
