Yoonie Heo, DMD, MS
Orthodontics is a truly rewarding dental specialty, and I am so excited to join Dr. Lili’s team and create beautiful smiles. I am always grateful and honored to be a part of each patient’s orthodontic journey and share their happiness and satisfaction.
Having parents who are both dentists, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in dentistry early on in my life. After my orthodontic treatment, I could not stop showing my smile to the world, and I realized I wanted to provide the same experience to others every day.
I completed my undergraduate studies at Wellesley College, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry. I graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine with my Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) degree. After earning my dental degree, I decided to continue my education by completing orthodontic residency and receiving a Master of Science in Craniofacial Biology at the University of Southern California. I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.
In order to better serve my patients by practicing evidence-based orthodontics, I regularly attend study clubs and a wide range of educational seminars and conferences. Additionally, I am an active member of the American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics, and Los Angeles Dental Society.
During my free time, my rescue Chihuahua, Lulu, and I love to travel, cook, and explore good restaurants and cafes in LA.
