Dr. Liz comes from a diverse background, having been born in South Korea and raised in various locales around the world, including Seoul, Singapore, and Seattle. She is happy to now call the East Bay her home with her husband and two energetic sons.
Dr. Liz received her B.S. in Cell Molecular Biology and D.D.S. from the University of Washington in Seattle and graduated with the high honor of Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU). Her passion for providing comprehensive dental care for children motivated her to be trained in both orthodontics and pediatric dentistry. She received her M.S. in Orthodontics at Columbia University in New York and completed her second training in Pediatric Dentistry at UCSF.
Dr. Liz maintains her Basic and Pediatric Advanced Life Support Certifications and is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, California Society of Pediatric Dentistry, American Association of Orthodontics, American Board of Orthodontics, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, Contra Costa Dental Society, and the Korean American Dental Association.
She believes that every patient should be treated with the same high quality of care as she would want for her own child.
During her free time, Dr. Liz enjoys venturing out on weekend hikes, having family movie nights, and rooting for the Warriors!
