Katie joined our office in 2016 as an intern during her gap year before dental school. Currently a dental student at UCLA, she continues to work remotely for the office by helping Esther with paperwork, managing the office's online presence and helping Dr. Kim with other tasks as they arise.
When she's not in Westwood studying, Katie likes to put her college degree to good use by tutoring middle and high school aged students in almost all levels of math and science. She's also a big fan of running, tea and anything with a well written story.
"...I travel 12 miles to get here. Wouldn't have it any other way."
"Doctor Maria and staff are wonderful. Having gone to Dr. Sue, Dr. Maria's mother, for 20 years I was scared to make a change when she retired. I have been a patient here for a year now and I feel home again. She helps me with her gentle, calming way feel relaxed. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. The staffs is wonderful . Starting with Esther in the front always welcoming to us patients to Benjie the assistant to Dr. Maria. He treats me with great respect and makes sure I'm comfortable. Having had a life-long fear of dentists I have been so fortunate to be here with Dr. Maria and staff since Dr. Sue retired. I travel 12 miles to get here. Wouldn't have it any other way." -- Steve H.
