When Dr. Katie Park turned 13 years old, her family decided to move to the United States from her birth place of Seoul, South Korea. As a child, she was always very artistic and enjoyed painting and drawing. Her passion for art continued as she became older, which lead her to attend Maryland Institute College of Art where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Art. After her undergraduate study, Dr. Park worked as a graphic designer until she discovered dentistry. She fell in love with the artistic aspect of dentistry and decided to return to school to pursue her career as a dentist.
Prior to dental school, she worked as a pediatric dental assistant and found her true passion to become a pediatric dentist. Dr. Park earned her doctorate degree at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry where she was inducted as a member of Gorgas Odontological Honorary Society and received multiple distinctions and awards for her excellency in clinical patient care. Dr. Park is grateful to have been selected as one of the residents to receive specialty training in pediatric dentistry at NYU langone / Suncoast Community Health Centers. While in her second year of residency training, Dr. Park served as co-chief resident.
Now practicing as a pediatric dentist at Dr. Bee’s pediatric dentistry, Dr. Park is looking forward to serving the community and helping children adopt healthy oral hygiene habits.
In her spare time Dr. Park enjoys soaking up the Florida sun and beaches, and raising her golden doodle puppy Mochi.
