Dr. Oh decided she wanted to be a member of the healthcare industry from an early age and was active in social services throughout the high school and dental school years. She participates at CDA Cares annually on days she is not at the office for the rewarding experience of providing dental services and teaching the importance of dental health to underserved populations in Southern California. Most recently, she spent a time at the Dominican Republic providing implant dentistry as part of a mission group and plans to do so every year.

Outside Dentistry

Beyond the scrubs, Dr. Oh is a true foodie, always on the lookout for new restaurants, good farmer’s markets, and cooking classes. Ask her about a new restaurant in town! She actively practices pilates throughout the week. Growing up in South East Asia early in her life, she had the opportunity to travel to many countries throughout Asia with her family. One continent she has yet to travel extensively is Europe, which she hopes to do so in the near future. Always welcoming food and travel recommendations, Dr. Oh is excited to meet you soon!
