  • Dr. Carrie Imoto, DDS, MS

    I graduated with honors from the University of California, Los Angeles. Continuing the proud Bruin tradition, I completed my professional education and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the UCLA School of Dentistry (same year as Dr. Eddie!). Upon graduating, I pursued my general practice residency at University Medical Center in Fresno, California. The following year, I moved to Philadelphia to do my orthodontic residency and receive my Master in Oral Biology from Temple University. I am an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists and American Dental Association.

    I have a passion for working with patients of all ages and I am excited to be joining Dr. Eddie’s team to provide patients the smile they deserve. Having had crooked teeth once myself, I can empathize with my patients and help guide them through the treatment process. It is my ultimate goal to help patients gain the self-confidence they need by creating beautiful smiles.

    I am a big fan of the UCLA Bruins sports teams, and in my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and 3 children, traveling, learning about other cultures, and trying new foods.

She enjoys volunteering on international mission trips to countries such as Panama and Belize to provide dental care to underserved children.

    Dr. Trish completed her hospital residency at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC)..
