Dr. Ruth Woldemicael (Dr. Mimi) grew up in Ethiopia and immigrated to the US with her older sister in 1986. Her dreams of becoming a doctor led her to Temple Universities School of Dentistry where she received her Degree of Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) in 2001. She accomplished her General Practice Residency (GPR) at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in 2002.
Dr. Mimi moved to the Great Northwest in 2002 where she then began her dental practice. In 2009 she made the decision to advance her dental knowledge and enrolled in the world renowned Las Vegas Institute (LVI) where she graduated in 2010. Her training, credit hours and understanding of advanced occlusion and esthetics now puts her in the top 3% of general dentists in the country. She is frequently among the first to learn and perfect the newest treatment techniques available to diagnose and treat dental issues including sleep issues, TMJ pain, and migraines using an sEMG scanner and very low radiation digital X-Rays.
When Dr Mimi is not practicing her passion for healthy esthetic dentistry she enjoys spending quality time with her daughter and they enjoy hiking and camping. Dr. Mimi speaks several languages; French, Amharic & Tigriana (Ethiopian Dialects) and Italian.
