Her Passion Toward Higher Learning
Dr. Paulina began her academic career in her home state of California at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). She earned a BS in Biology with a minor in Spanish in 2014, allowing her to communicate with her Spanish-speaking patients.
She continued her education at her alma mater’s cross-town rival, the University of Southern California, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2018. She then received the opportunity to train at NYU Langone Hospital in Oahu, Hawaii, where she acquired an Advanced Education Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry.
Experience From All Over the World
Dr. Paulina’s desire to excel in pediatric dentistry was enhanced with hertimeat Boston Children’s Hospital, externing with Harvard pediatric dental residents. There, she helped treat medically complex patients from all over the world with rare congenital conditions.
Further expanding her pediatric dental expertise, Dr. Paulina worked at Los Angeles County Hospital Pediatric Dental Clinic , caring for patients from infancy to 18 years including those of the Violence Intervention Program
Dr. Paulina honed her pediatric skills through her pediatric dental residency in Hawaii, performing many full mouth oral rehabilitation cases at Shriners Children’s Hospital in Honolulu and Kona Community Hospital on the Big Island.
Giving Back to Those in Need
Being the caring and compassionate person she is, Dr. Paulina believes that everyone deserves proper dental care and should be able to own a smile of which they are proud despite their finances or access to care.
Dr. Paulina volunteered her services to the USC Mobile Clinic and QueensCare Dental Clinic in the Los Angeles area. She also served with Ayuda International in both areas of Southern California and Thailand. With these organizations, she provided comprehensive dental treatment to children and adults.
Due to the lack of fluoride in the water system, Hawaii leads the nation in cavities, which predominantly affects the underserved peoples of the state. To help alleviate this and other dental problems, Dr. Paulina cared for homeless Hawaiian and Pacific Islander populations who would otherwise have no access to oral care.
Life Outside of Her Scrubs
When Dr. Paulina manages to fit in some leisure time, she loves to read self-help books, try new foods, and spend time with family. She also enjoys traveling to beautiful destinations like Italy and Southeast Asia. And she makes sure to spend time with her dog at the beach.
