Education and Experience

Prior to relocating to Los Angeles to attend USC, Dr. Wells spent 6 years of intense schooling to earn her DDS degree from Aichi Gakuin University of Dental School in Japan and graduated with the highest honors. She received the Kavo Dental Award, given to the top dental student in the class. Following graduation, Dr. Wells completed her internship at Osaka University Graduate School of Dentistry in the Department of Periodontology and Endodontics. After working as a general dentist in Japan, Dr. Wells decided to return to the United States where she could top off her skillset with a western style dental education. She was accepted and obtained her DDS degree from Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC. During her 2nd year of dental school at USC, she volunteered at various free dental care programs including USC’s Mobile Dental Clinic, Queens Care, AYUDA, and the Union Rescue Mission. Through this experience, she had the privilege to meet, learn from, and work alongside numerous world class clinicians at USC, and it was here she fell in love with the concept of Minimally Invasive Dentistry (MID), digital dental technology, cosmetic dentistry, and preventive care.

After graduating from dental school at USC, she was admitted into the Advanced Operative and Adhesive Dentistry residency program at USC to pursue her ultimate goal of learning and practicing MID and aesthetic dentistry. She studied under several of the top operative dentists, prosthodontists, and professors in the world. Simultaneously, she also researched the full spectrum of dental materials and digital dental technology required to earn the Master of Science in Biomaterial and Digital Dentistry.

Dr. Wells is thrilled to work at Beverly Hills Boutique Dental Care where she can focus on what she loves to do and provide unparalleled quality of care to individual patients with the highest quality dental materials and technology available.

Dr. Wells is a member of the Western Los Angeles Dental Society, California Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and Academy for Excellence in Dentistry, keeping her dental knowledges up to date.

Outside of the Office

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and her three furry children (a cat and two dogs). She loves to hike, to explore new places in LA, enjoys the culinary arts, and frequently takes her dogs to the beautiful beaches around the city.

When holiday allows, Dr. Wells visits her family and friends in Japan, and on occasion, gives lectures on American dentistry/technology to her Japanese dental colleagues. She enjoys revisiting the same classic piano and songs she grew up in Japan.
