Dr. Christine Coughlin is from Los Angeles, where she attended the all-girls Catholic college-preparatory school, Marymount High School, a historical monument established in 1923, known for a rich history in empowering young women to become ethical leaders who dedicate their lives to service. During her time at Marymount, Dr. Christine participated in many amazing community outreach opportunities where she discovered a deep passion for making a difference in the world by loving and serving others.
This powerful experience touched her heart so deeply and she found her purpose: to give love and hope to others. And she knew Dentistry was the right path for her.

That summer, Dr. Christine went on a mission trip with International Service Learning, a global volunteer program, where she helped raise funds and provide essential Medical and Dental care to the under-served villages of Nicaragua and Costa Rica. She fell in love with the precious villagers, who were so full of joy and gratitude for the little our team was able to offer for such great need.
