    • Dr. Camille San Miguel was born and raised in Maryland, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Neurobiology and Physiology with a full scholarship at University of Maryland. She then moved to New York City to earn her DDS at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, and loved the city so much that she chose to stay for residency in pediatric dentistry at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

      At a young age, Dr. Camille already knew she wanted a career working with kids. Her mother was a stay-at-home babysitter, and through helping her mom, she discovered that she had a natural ability to interact with tiny humans. Her passion for children further developed through her high school job as a swim instructor, teaching kids how to overcome their fears in the water. In college, she participated in multiple global dental brigades in central and south America, where a passion was impressed in her heart to pursue pediatric dentistry.

      In dental school and residency, Dr. Camille took an active role in the local pediatric community as a member of AAPD, volunteer for Give Kids a Smile, and chair of SNDA’s elementary outreach program. She participated in the mobile dental van initiative to bring care to medically underserved preschools in the Bronx, and served as a mentor to special needs kids through Live Up Programs.

      Dr. Camille’s mission is to be a dentist that works at the forefront for the campaign for better oral health. She wants to make a preventative impact as much as she wants to help those in need of restorative care. As a pediatric dentist, her goal is to help close the gap in oral hygiene awareness and mold proper habits in children that they will carry into the rest of their lives. She aims to achieve this through a fun-filled friendly environment that gives children the positive experiences they need to better their oral health.
