Why did you decide to become a pediatric dentist?
Dr. Momi was a general dentist for 3 years before returning to school to specialize in pediatric dentistry. As a general dentist she found herself working exclusively with children and their families and decided to make it official and become a pediatric dentist! She loves watching her patients literally “grow up” between visits and how every patient and family is truly unique and special. No two days are ever the same and she loves that!
Where did you study dentistry?
Dr. Momi’s undergraduate studies took place at the University of Texas at Arlington, where she achieved a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology. She then attended The University of Texas Health Science Center School of Dentistry in San Antonio for her Doctorate of Dental Surgery. After practicing general dentistry for several years in Lubbock, Texas she returned to The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio to obtain her specialty certificate in Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Momi has extensive training in pharmacologic sedation, hospital dentistry, behavior management, and interceptive orthodontics.
What do you like to do outside of the office?
When she’s not hanging out with patients at OPD smiles Dr. Momi is spending time with her husband, Ali and her Havanese puppy Baloo. She loves ethnic cooking and baking, trying new restaurants, and international travel.
