Dr. Susie grew up in the Central Valley, and was inspired to become a dentist by her father, who was a general dentist. Dr. Susie attended the University of California at Berkeley before earning her dental degree from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry. Following dental school, she first completed a general dentistry residency at CRMC in Fresno, CA, where she gained experience in hospital dentistry, dentistry for patients with special needs, and cared for the veterans of our country with the VA Medical Center. After deciding to specialize in pediatric dentistry, Dr. Susie completed another residency at the Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, NY, gaining knowledge specifically for taking care of all children’s dental needs, all while serving as a Chief Resident, like she had for her first residency in Fresno. Dr. Susie participates in many community service programs, such as Give Kids a Smile, CDA Cares, and travels abroad on medical missions with Kids International Dental Services. She also is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, College of Diplomates, the California Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and our local dental association, the Redwood Empire Dental Society.
Dr. Eddie Kuo
My name is Dr. Eddie Kuo, you can find information about my professional background and credentials below.
Beyond understanding my professional qualifications, it is important to me that you know why I chose to be a dental health care provider—and consequently why I am passionate about your dental health. When I think back about the best moments in my life—my first date, a surprise birthday party, a big sporting event, my wedding day, etc., they are all connected by a common theme…FOOD! In my life, every significant event has revolved around great food and celebrating with food, a concept that has been ingrained in me since my childhood in Taiwan. Whenever my family gets together, the first question that anyone asks is, “have you eaten?!” Meals for my family can be epic events that can take a full day of preparation and cooking, but ultimately provide us with ample time to laugh and share important moments together. While every family and culture has their own traditions around food, meals are ultimately a universal expression of community and friendship shared by all, which is why food and the ability to enjoy food is very important to me.
That is where Dentistry comes in. I realize that if your teeth are not working harmoniously, they can interfere with your ability to chew and prevent you from fully savoring food in all of its wonderful flavors and textures. Since so much enjoyment stems from coming together around food, it is my goal to ensure that your teeth are in optimal health so that food will always be an enjoyable experience.
To that end, I invite you to come in and see us so that I can meet you and learn how I can best care for your dental health. Hopefully, I can give you some food for thought and information about teeth for you to chew on!
