Dr. Elizabeth is excited to be a part of the Sunnyvale Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics team! Dr. Elizabeth was born and raised in the Bay Area and is overjoyed to be back serving as a healthcare provider in the local community. 

Early on, Dr. Elizabeth was inspired by her teachers and mentors to pursue a profession working with kids. During her undergraduate years at UCLA, she mentored with a student-adoptee organization on campus,China Care Bruins. After college, she attended  Harvard School of Dental Medicine, where she further cemented her love of working with children through volunteer activities such as Give Kids a Smile Day, Special Olympics, and a community clinic for patients with special health care needs.

Following dental school, Dr. Elizabeth was delighted to move back close to her family to complete a dual pediatric dental residency and master’s program at UCSF. This three-year program included extensive training in trauma management, advanced behavior management, and providing quality care for the most underserved in our community. Her research on silver diamine fluoride (a caries arresting medicament) has been published in Pediatric Dentistry, the authoritative journal in the field. Dr. Elizabeth’s commitment in being an engaged dental provider has led her all over the world, from lobbying for pediatric dentistry in D.C. and Sacramento, to volunteering in the Navajo nation in Arizona and the remote Panajachel, Guatemala.

Dr. Elizabeth’s favorite part about being a pediatric dentist is working with families to establish a dental home and customizing a treatment plan to one that is right for them – understanding that everyone’s needs, values, and cultural experiences are unique. Dr. Elizabeth is excited to guide your children towards great oral health and can’t wait to meet you and your family!

Beyond dentistry, Dr. Elizabeth’s passions include hiking with her dog, traveling with family and friends, amateur gardening, and BTS. Dr. Elizabeth is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish, and conversational in Cantonese.
