Her warm, gentle and caring personality allows her patients to feel secure, relaxed, and comfortable and have an enjoyable experience as she treats them and educates them in personal dental hygiene.
One of the things that Dr. Paulina enjoys most about practicing pediatric dentistry is experiencing the continuity of care that she gives her patients watching them mature and eventually take responsibility for their personal dental care.

She worked concurrently at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and USC Special Patients Clinic, providing comprehensive dental care for special needs and medically compromised patients. At Boston Children’s Hospital, she was selected to extern with Harvard pediatric dental residentsWhile in Hawaii, Dr. Paulina successfully performed many full mouth oral rehabilitation cases at Shriners Children’s Hospital in Honolulu and Kona Community Hospital on the big island of Hawaii.
Care and Compassion for her Community
Dr. Paulina has always been a caring and compassionate person who wishes to help others. She expressed this desire at an early age when she accompanied her mother and aunt—both dentists themselves— to Vietnam, where they volunteered their services. She vividly remembers handing out toothbrushes to the children they treated and enjoying the big smiles that appeared on their faces.
Through her involvement in community dentistry and outreach, Dr. Paulina developed her passion for pediatric dentistry. She encountered and treated a wide variety of pediatric cases when volunteering with USC Mobile Clinic in Los Angeles, Dental Care for Children in Ensenada, Mexico, and Ayuda International in Phuket, Thailand.
Life Away from Patients
When it’s time to take a break from working hard and treating her pediatric patients, Dr. Paulina enjoys reading non-fiction and self-help books, trying new foods, walking with her dog on the beach, and traveling to Europe—especially Italy— and Southeast Asia.
