Dr. Nichole Sun
I want my patients to feel that they are receiving the best care possible, and that they are treated with the utmost respect. I treat my patients the way I would want to be treated, both on a professional and personal level. I pride myself in my commitment toward providing the best quality dental care and experience for my patients. My patients come from various walks of life and each have their own distinct personalities, and it is this uniqueness that makes working with them so enjoyable. Each patient brings with them a different perspective, which makes life so much more interesting and exciting.
I want to make a difference in people's lives. By simply improving a person's smile, their confidence can be enhanced, and that feeling can last a lifetime. Helping people gives me a satisfaction that I have made a difference, whether big or small, and in the end, I have made an impact on someone's life.
Education and Continuing Education
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of California Los Angeles School of Dentistry
- Orthodontic Specialty Certificate – University of California Los Angeles Orthodontic Program
- Master of Science Degree – University of California Los Angeles Oral Biology Program
While in dental school, I served as a student director for the Asian dental clinic, where we provided dental care to less fortunate patients in the Los Angeles area. During my post-graduate specialty program, I worked as a bench instructor for UCLA dental students and was lecturer at the UCLA orthodontic program, teaching the orthodontic residents the fundamentals of radiographic cephalometric analysis.
Providing the best quality dental care for my patients requires that I stay informed and up-to-date with the most current technology. Taking continuing education courses allows me to broaden and build upon my knowledge base which I can share with my patients. When I am informed, my patients will be more informed and can make the best decisions regarding their own treatment. I choose to participate in continuing education because learning is never static; it is a continuous process. I hope to convey my knowledge to my patients so they can benefit from what I have learned.

Outside the Office
I am originally from Northern California and currently reside in Thousand Oaks with my husband, Ben, who works as a dentist in the Los Angeles area. We have two lovely daughters, Jessica and Christina, and a yellow lab named Bacon. It's very important for me to be a good role model for my children. In my free time I enjoy watching football with my husband, playing billiards, and keeping up with my fantasy football league.
