Dr. Naomi La
Dr. Naomi La grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she learned to love and enjoy nature while obtaining her Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology. Then she moved to Boston to attend Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine to receive her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree, manga cum laude. After a year practicing general dentistry, she finished her pediatric dental residency with the NYU Langone Hospitals, at the Massachusetts satellite location in Holyoke.
Dr. La has deep compassion for her patients and understands that children process this exciting world in their own unique ways. What she loves most about being a pediatric dentist is having the opportunity to make a lasting difference in children’s lives through oral health and creating positive dental experiences with each visit. When Dr. La is not at Kangaroo Smiles, she enjoys exploring local trails with her husband, playing the piano and guitar, and also painting pictures of her cat.
