Dr. Tania was born and raised in Los Angeles and feels blessed to serve the health care needs of the population she is most familiar with.
She received her B.S. in Biology from UCLA where she was awarded the prestigious Regent Scholarship and graduated Summa Cum Laude. She was then admitted to the UCLA School of Dentistry where she excelled both in and out of the clinic, receiving admissions to the elite OKU National Dental Honor Society.
Dr. Tania chose a career in orthodontics because she wanted to have an impact on someone’s life in a way that was positive, personal, and would last a lifetime. She solidified herself as a life-long Bruin by training at UCLA’s Orthodontic Residency program where she also obtained a Masters in Oral Biology. There she was exposed to numerous cutting-edge techniques in orthodontics taught by world-renowned faculty members. Prior to her graduation the preeminent Journal of Clinical Orthodontics selected her as a finalist for the Eugene L. Gotlieb Student of the Year Award.
Dr. Tania is thrilled to be a part of this office, where she can provide high quality, personalized treatment for each individual patient. When she is not seeing patients, she loves yoga, biking by the beach, trying new restaurants, and watching everything on Netflix. She also enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, Alexander and Charlotte.
