Dr. Cherish Leung grew up around her many younger siblings and cousins, and throughout her life has been surrounded by children! She loves working with kids and patients with special needs. She is extremely fortunate that her passion for working with kids and her love of dentistry can be combined and allow her to help patients in a unique way daily.

Dr. Cherish graduated undergrad from UCLA, and went on to earn two Masters degrees—one in Healthcare Administration and one in Public Health with an emphasis on dentistry. She then attended dental school at Western University of Health Sciences, graduating with honors, and being elected to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon honor society. She then moved to New York for general practice residency, where she worked with mostly patients with special needs. She decided New York provided fantastic training in pediatric dentistry and was fortunate to be able to stay for two more years, training at Northwell Health Hofstra School of Medicine Staten Island University Hospital. She worked for a year in Long Island, NY in private practice seeing pediatric patients before moving back to California.

Dr. Cherish loves the sunshine and outdoors, enjoying hiking, walking and running in her free time. She also loves deep sea and river fishing, but refuses to eat any
seafood.
