Dr Hoffman received her Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with Honors from the University of Central Florida, after which she completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree at Nova Southeastern University. After advanced training through a General Practice Residency done locally at Denver Health Medical Center, she obtained her Pediatric Dental Certificate at Nova Southeastern University, where she gained extensive experience in the dental care of children, adolescents, and special needs patients. During Pediatric residency, she concurrently earned her Masters of Dental Sciences (M.S.) degree.
Dr. Hoffman is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), American Dental Association (ADA), Colorado Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (CAPD), Colorado Dental Association (CDA), Metro Denver Dental Society (MDDS). Additionally, she has formal training in laser dentistry and myofunctional orthodontics. Dr. Hoffman has privileges at Children’s Hospital Colorado, and was recently elected Secretary of Colorado Pediatric Dentists.
"I decided to specialize in Pediatric Dentistry because as a General Dentist, I realized that whenever I was working with children I felt like I was making a difference. I believe that every child deserves the fundamental tools for proper oral health, which also affects overall health and well-being. This begins with educating families, and is the key to preventing dental diseases.
One of the greatest rewards for me is helping a child overcome their dental anxieties by making their dental visit positive and fun. I consider myself lucky because I truly love being a Pediatric Dentist; it is one of the few professions where you can have fun with children all day long and watch them grow through the years. The best parts of my day are seeing children's smiling faces and hearing the funny things they say."
Dr. Hoffman also works at a local non-profit community clinic, helping treat underserved children. She looks forward to the "Give Kids a Smile" event each February.
On a personal note, she loves spending time with her family - especially in the Colorado outdoors, traveling, listening to music, and cheering on her favorite sports teams!
