Originally from Pleasanton, CA, Dr. Desmet is just the type of person you want your dentist to be. She loves meeting new people, improving their health and appearance, and she truly enjoys getting to work with her hands every day. Her passion and drive to provide the best service and care possible can be felt in every exam and treatment she performs here at The Dental Suite. Before she helps your smile shine, you can learn more about her below.
Right after college, Dr. Desmet started working at a nonprofit medical/dental clinic. The experience made her want to pursue a career in dentistry because she saw just how much of a far-reaching effect someone’s oral health can have on their day-to-day life. Her desire to help people drew her to the clinic in the first place, so it was an easy decision for her to enroll in dental school.
After graduating from UC Berkley and working at the clinic, Dr. Desmet attended the University of the Pacific, eventually graduating with her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. This was followed by an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at Oakland’s Highland Hospital. Always striving to expand her knowledge and skills, she still seeks out continuing education opportunities whenever she can, primarily by maintaining active memberships in organizations such as the American Dental Association and California Dental Association. She is also a Certified Invisalign Provider.
When not in the office, you’ll most likely find Dr. Desmet somewhere outdoors. She likes to ski, surf, camp, and do pretty much anything that involves being under the sun. She is also an avid traveler as well.
