Dr. Soleil loves being a part of the Woodinville community! A Philadelphia native, she moved to Washington for her orthodontic training and is now happy to call the Pacific Northwest her home.
You could say that dentistry is almost genetic for Dr. Soleil – both of her parents are orthodontists; her sister, Asya, is a dental hygienist; and her husband, Michael, is a periodontist. Dr. Soleil was inspired to become an orthodontist from a very young age and has followed her dream ever since!
Dr. Soleil achieved the highest possible level of orthodontic training before entering private practice, including 4 years of dental school, 2.5 years of Orthodontic residency, American Board of Orthodontics Certification, and an 18-month fellowship in Craniofacial Orthodontics with a focus on orthodontic treatment for cleft lip and palate, craniofacial syndromes, patients with special needs and pediatric sleep apnea. She is an Affiliate Faculty member in the Graduate Department of Orthodontics at the University of Washington and is also affiliated with the Puget Sound Cleft Lip and Palate Team. She has lectured both locally and nationally to many orthodontic, dental, and sleep specialty groups on a variety of orthodontic and sleep apnea topics.
When she’s not thinking or talking about teeth, Dr. Soleil enjoys traveling to see family and friends. A former collegiate water polo player, she’s all about water sports – wakeboarding, kiteboarding, surfing, boating, swimming – you name it! You might notice the water theme when you visit the office!
