Dr. Amy Hauschildt had a childhood that was a tad more interesting than many of us. While she was born in Colorado Springs, she grew up all the way across the globe in Papua New Guinea. This unique childhood shaped her outlook as she grew up.
She ended up going to dental school at Loma Linda in California and after graduation joined our office. While she didn't intend to be at a kids only practice, Dr. Amy is glad it worked out that way. Now, she can't imagine being anything other than a kids dentist. She loves talking with kids and hearing their wild, funny stories.
Through the experiences growing up abroad, she understood the health challenges that underserved communities have to endure. As a result, she founded International Dental Ministries, a group that provides dental care to rural communities in Peru.
In addition, Dr. Amy is an active member of the American Dental Association.
World Traveler: Not only did she grow up abroad, but she has visited 6 of the 7 continents.
Secret Skill: Dr. Amy plays the piano. The dexterity is probably what makes her such a great dentist.
Best Dental Tip: Skip the juice. It is loaded with sugar and a leading cause of cavities.
