How did I become a dentist in Redding, California?
I came to USA in May of 1968, to spend a summer to learn English. During my short stay I saw the world’s best democracy and met kindest people I had ever met in my life. I fell in love with the people and the system of government. I decided to go to school in this country. My education took much longer than I expected, as I got married after receiving Bachelor degree in Allied Health. I had two children when I decided to go to school of dentistry. I received my degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery, from Indiana University Dental School, in 1982, after which I opened my private practice in Indianapolice, IN..
I practiced dentistry and orthodontics for 25 years in Indianapolis. In July 2008, I married my current husband, a resident of Redding.I decided to sell my practice and move to Redding.
I love Redding the beautiful weather, lovely lakes, the opportunity of fishing and hiking the friendly people and I could go on. After over 30 years of experience in Dentistry; I have my own practice in Redding, located at 1548 East street, across from Shasta Regional hospital . I am a Preferred Provide, of Invisalign, the clear dental brace and the director of Redding Invisalign Center.
In July 1990 I received fellowship award from academy of General Dentistry. This award requires 600 hours of continuing education and passing required examination. In July 2000 I received Mastership award from Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD) . This is the highest award for continuing education.
