Pediatric Dentist Mika Katsura, DDS, BSN, RN
Dr. Mika Katsura grew up in the East Bay. She attended University of California, Los
Angeles, UCLA (Go Bruins!), where she obtained a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing.
After graduating, she completed a residency program at Children’s Hospital Los
Angeles in pediatric emergency nursing care. While working with children requiring
complex medical and dental treatment, Mika found a passion to help the pediatric
population with their dental needs. She returned to the Bay Area and attended UCSF
School of Dentistry and continued to work as a pediatric nurse at Children’s Hospital
Benioff Oakland in the emergency room. There, she focused on clinical research, dental
trauma, emergency care for children with special needs and serving low-income
families. She subsequently completed a residency in Pediatric Dentistry at NYU
Langone’s Hawaii dental sites, and is now excited to continue the Aloha Spirit by joining
Aloha Pediatric Dentistry.
Outside of her health care professions, Mika loves to do anything involving outdoor
adventures! She loves to ski in the winter and enjoys surfing with her husband Mitch.
