Born and raised in Orange County, California, Dr. Brittany Su has always had a love for people. Since her first ever medical mission trip at the age of 14, she set it in her heart and mind that she would one day travel the world to bring healing to hearts and bodies through music and medicine. Over 12 years later, having graduated from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University with a B.M. in Violin Performance and a Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, her passion is stronger than ever. When not actively serving her patients, Dr. Su enjoys time with her husband, newborn baby, Mila, and fur babies, Apollo and Theo! They can often be found at a coffee shop spending quiet time together or walking along their favorite scenic routes.
