About Dr. Mendoza
Dr. Mendoza was born and raised in San Diego but has been moving around with her Airforce husband and high school sweetheart. They moved to Colorado Springs in 2021 and love all of the outdoor things Colorado has to offer. She wanted to become a dentist after going on a medical mission trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and she saw what a great impact on the community that she could have with dentistry. Dr. Mendoza graduated magna cum laude from UCLA with a psychobiology BS and received her DDS from UC San Francisco in 2012, where she was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honor society. With her husband, they have traveled to over 30 countries and 20 states. They have a 10-month-old daughter, Maddie, who just became Gerber baby 2023, and a Frenchie named Zoe. Dr. Mendoza enjoys food, traveling, photography, yoga, paddle boarding, hiking, cooking, and spending time with her family. She is looking forward to giving her patients at Bright a positive and gentle dental experience.
