Orthodontic Specialist, Creative, Coach, Leader, Speaker, Knowledge Lover, Craftsmanship and Design, Seeker of Beauty in Form and Nature

Hello!

I'm Doctor Maruko, of Maruko Orthodontics, where we Embrace the Art and Health of beautiful smiles.

I combine 25+ years of orthodontic experience with over twenty years in personal development, a Certification in Jungian Spiritual Psychology, three dental study clubs, a life time interest in the arts, and a passion to create beautiful smiles, improve health, and confidence. 

I work with other specialists and dentists dedicated to developing treatment plans that often require additional thought and creativity.

Because of my personal interests and professional involvements, I am uniquely qualified to provide care in the context of the whole, mind and body. 

A great smile allows my patients to feel comfortable expressing themselves at work, at school, with their friends, and as leaders in the community. 

ON a personal note...

 

You might laugh, but when I was young, I hated the dentist.  I was always in fear of having yet another cavity despite my best efforts, with the foreign sounds and smells, people talking over my head, and afraid things would hurt. 

I was sensitive and shy...Now, I see that sensitivity and being afraid of the dentist are a gift.  I am able to see and feel the subtleties of designing a beautiful smile, and patient interactions. The Jungian Psychology comes in handy with tools to help people with what stops them in life, including having a great smile.

I experienced a huge burn out about seven years ago..

I had mastered what had been taught in dental school and gained immeasurable clinical experience.  What was missing...I had forgotten that I am also creative and an artist.  At a young age I was exposed to the arts, taking art classes at Chapman College and Bower's museum as well as my own backyard with my mother as the arts and crafts leader of the neighborhood.  I started taking photography classes and dancing again and sharing that creativity with my patients.

My background in dance helps me understand dental health as an integral function of beauty, movement, and human expression. I am passionate about the art of uncovering the depths of true expression and creativity.

At USC, I was invited to the Thematic Option program which is their honors general education with fewer than thirty science majors, a rigorous writing program, art history, and philosophy. And...I found my love for psychology. They both help me when I write blog articles. My English Lit professor once told me that I write pretty well for a science major. Thematic Option, thank you for giving me a college reality check by giving me a "D" on my first paper and having a requirement to see the writing tutor every other week. You see, I had passed out of the writing requirement at UCLA.
