So here’s the inside scoop:
Meet Dr. Paulencia Morris! She is super excited to get to know the Kid’s Care Dental family. Dr. Morris grew up in a small town in East Texas and really enjoys playing outdoors. She also enjoys helping her dad take care of their cows and work on cars in his auto mechanic shop. When she is not busy working, she likes cooking with her family and learning how to create the most delicious peach and blackberry cobblers ever.
Growing up in a small town is something Dr. Morris came to love as an adult and has sparked a desire to travel and explore the world. She went to the UCLA School of Dentistry, and studied in Madrid, Spain for six months. She has since lived in South Korea, Japan and Germany. Dr. Morris loves her two cuddly kittens who she’s now had the company of for 14 years! She brings them along on all of her adventures.
I became a dentist because: I love helping people! As a Dental professional, I have the opportunity to promote healing, alleviate suffering and help improve the lives of others so they can lead more joyful and healthy lives.
I love my community because: I love the California Sunshine and the rich and beautiful natural landscape that we are so fortunate to experience here.
I chose to work with children because: Their joy in infectious! Many adults have had negative childhood experiences with the Dentist and I wanted to be able to change that narrative for young children. It is a wondrous moment when you see the fear fade away as they smile and are left feeling empowered and confident about the next visit!
