Dr. Ndidi Onugha- Uka believes that "the simple act of smiling not only makes you feel better, but look better," and restoring that confidence through smiles is what made Dr. Onugha- Uka become a dentist. A Los Angeles native, Dr. Onugha- Uka completed her undergraduate studies at UCLA majoring in psychobiology. She then attended Pepperdine University where she earned her Master of Arts degree in education with an emphasis in psychology, and later attended the prestigious Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at USC where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery. Not only is she an active member in the Angel City Dental Society, she also gives back to the community by feeding the homeless, and volunteering at food drives and health fairs. In her spare time, Dr. Onugha enjoys cycling, running marathons, traveling, cooking, and reading. Her dream is to be a successful and great dentist, wife, mother, and daughter while living by the philosophy, "it is with hands and hearts that make the world a little better place."
