Meet The Team



Front Administrator / RDA

I joined Smile By Design in 2010, starting as a dental assistant. With over 11 years of dental experience, I now lead the office under Dr. Choi’s direct supervision. Fluent in Korean and English, I love interacting with all the wonderful people that come through our doors. My first priority is caring for our patients. Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband. Whether it’s finding a new spot to eat or traveling across the globe, I’m always looking for the next adventure. I also love coffee and coffee loves me.



Registered Dental Hygienist

I joined Smile by Design in 2011 as a dental assistant who has a background in dental laboratory technology and now, as a registered dental Hygienist, I became our very own. I love spending one-on-one time with patients and educating every about oral health & hygiene. Dentistry has a special place in my heart and I have a passion for helping patients achieve a healthy smile. I live with my husband in Huntington Beach, but can be found all over Southern California doing anything from hiking, paddle boarding, snowboarding, playing volleyball, and riding beach cruisers.

Registered Dental Assistant

I graduated from a program called ROP and became a registered dental assistant in 2014. I enjoy working along side Dr. Choi and ensuring our patients feel comfortable and leave happy. My favorite part of dentistry is seeing the positive life-changing results that cosmetic dentistry can provide for patients. I enjoy lifting weights, traveling, doing all things outdoorsy with my Siberian husky, Bubba, and trying new restaurants.



Registered Dental Hygienist

I look forward to meeting you! In my 22 years of practice, I have become an advocate for patient health through education. My goal is to go above and beyond a typical hygiene appointment and create a lasting connection. I am a graduate of UC San Francisco and received my Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Health and Hygiene, in 1997. I had the wonderful opportunity to hone my skills in dentistry with such programs as laser certification from the Academy of Laser Dentistry, dental hygiene patient care from Advanced Hygiene Concepts, and Leadership/Communication certificate from Compass Training.
