Summary of Academic Career
Dr. Edwards began her academic journey at UC Irvine, majoring in Biological Science, and received her Bachelor of Science degree in 2017. Soon after graduating, she traveled to northern California to attend the University of the Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry.
During her rigorous course work at Dugoni, Dr. Letitia still managed to find time to create an informational brochure on Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea and served as coordinator of the Advanced Pediatric Clinic.
She graduated in June of 2020 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, only to head back to Southern California and begin her Certificate in Advanced Pediatric Dentistry at USC. She is scheduled to complete her certificate in the summer of 2022.
During her time at UC Irvine, Dr. Edwards led study sessions and additional learning opportunities for students in biological sciences and chemistry courses as a Biological Sciences Peer Tutor.
Recently, Dr. Letitia traveled some distance and dedicated her time to offering her dental expertise at Indian Health Service in Wolf Point, MT, where she treated Native American patients performing dental care and extractions.
She has also conducted research at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles on the effect a sensory-adapted dental environment has on improving the quality of teeth cleaning for children with Autism.
Throughout her residency, Dr. Letitia has experienced treating newborns with natal or neonatal teeth and Cleft Lip and Palate, including the fabrication of feeding tubes.
Dr. Edwards is also a member of the California Society of Pediatric Dentists and is active in strategic planning and working with the board of directors.
While working on her Bachelor of Science degree at UC Irvine, Dr. Letticia made it possible for underserved children to attend 6–8-week tennis clinics, where she secured funding, location, and materials and acted as head coach.
Always the advocate for our most vulnerable patients, Dr. Edwards has worked with several organizations to lobby congress to ensure that patients with craniofacial anomalies and others get the essential dental care they need and deserve.
When Dr. Edwards takes a break from her duties as a pediatric dentist, she enjoys a sun-soaked day of rollerblading at the beautiful and abundant Southern California beaches. You might also catch her at a local coffee or ice cream shop, where she loves to sample the wide new varieties available.
Her first few summer jobs interested her in working with kids, which is still of top importance today. Whenever possible, her love of tennis often leads to running a kid’s tennis camp or even pursuing another one of her talents—teaching dance.
Dr. Letitia says that her top priority is working with families to provide preventative education and excellent restorative care. That commitment is displayed daily as she administers exceptional dental care to her young patients at TLC Smiles.
