Her ultimate goal as a periodontist is to educate her patients on gum disease prevention and treatment. Dr. Li fully believes in the power of preventive medicine and dentistry as a method of stopping illness and disease before it manifests in our bodies and mouths.

Dr. Li places an special emphasis on serving newly expectant, pregnant, and post-pregnant women, especially as their gums and oral environments change throughout pregnancy.

Her other goals include providing a welcoming and nonjudgmental space for patients to receive treatment in an oftentimes high anxiety or fearful environment.

When not saving smiles (and teeth), Dr. Li enjoys surfing, playing tennis, skiing and traveling, and she is fluent in conversational Mandarin Chinese.
